The former child star could be categorized amongst the likes of Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, and Hillary Duff, who constantly graced the tabloid magazines. Lindsay Lohan rose to the spotlight at just 12 years old after the launch of “The Parent Trap.” She then starred in high school comedies such as “Mean Girls” and “Confessions Of A Teenage Drama Queen.”
Even though her blooming career was glaring to everyone, she wasn’t given enough roles in Hollywood.
Eventually, she became one of Hollywood’s biggest party girls, and her reputation spilled over to her work. While she filmed “Georgia Rule,” Lohan’s boss blasted her over her work ethic and called her “discourteous, irresponsible, and unprofessional” and a “spoiled child,” as reported by People.
Similarly, her co-stars had consenting opinions. “The Canyon” co-star remarked about Lohan via HuffPost.
“There were days when she would scream and yell and cry and refuse to come out … Lindsay was like a child lashing out.”
However, despite her reputation on set, not all her co-stars had the same experience with her. A particular co-star was full of praise for her.
Jamie Lee Curtis Praises Lindsay Lohan
When asked if she saw the Superbowl commercial that featured Lohan, she confirmed in the affirmative, noting that, “I’m just happy that she’s happy.”
“She is a great talent,” Curtis continued. “And she’s had a lot on her plate at a very young age. It seems like she is settling into a really happy domestic life — she’s engaged.”
The actress continued, “We’re in contact, and the fact that she can poke fun at herself a little [means] we can all poke fun at ourselves. Show business is tough, and being in front of the tabloid press is very difficult; it’s really brutal. So God bless her.”
Curtis And Lohan Appeared Together On ‘Freaky Friday’
The pair played the role of an odds mother-daughter pair that swapped bodies in “Freaky Friday.” The 2003 movie, directed by Mark Waters, is based on Mary Rodger’s 1972 novel.
The version in which Lohan and Curtis played was Disney’s third novel adaptation. A version starring Jodie Foster and Barbara Harris was released in 1976, and another starring Gaby Hoffmann and Shelly Long was released in 1995.
Years later, Disney released a musical adaptation of the book, staring actresses Cozi Zuehlsdorff and Heidi Blickenstaff.
In 2019, Curtis spoke to Vanity Fair about her most significant roles. She told the outlet that “Freaky Friday” was a “train that was moving” because the actress set to play the role initially pulled out before the filming began.
“I was on a book tour, I read books for children, and I got a call from my agent, saying, ‘This movie is going at Disney, and they have asked if you will be in it,'” Curtis explained.
“It was a Thursday. They sent me the script, I read it on the plane. I met the director on Saturday, I had my hair dyed red on Sunday, and I was shooting on Monday,” she said. So the beauty of this movie is I just jumped into it with absolute zero prep, on any level,” the Knives Out star concluded.

About Lohan’s SuperBowl Commercial
Lohan was featured in a Planet Fitness SuperBowl ad recently.
