Lohan welcomes stranded girl into her home

Freaky Friday star Lindsay Lohan has opened her house to a complete stranger, after discovering a young girl couldn't return to her home in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Louisiana is one of four US states which has suffered structural damage and loss of life at the hands of Hurricane Katrina.

So when 19-year-old Lohan, who spent almost three months in New Orleans earlier this year, heard the girl's plight she felt compelled to help.

She says: "There was this girl the other night I was at dinner and she was from New Orleans. She came here (to New York) for a trip for the day.

"Ironically, she couldn't go back and she is here. So I kind of took her under my wing. I said: 'Do you want to come and stay with us for the rest of the night?' It's just the scariest thought. I can't even imagine it."
