Lindsay Lohan On What 'Freaky Friday' Means To Her

In 2023, Lindsay Lohan reminisced on what "Freaky Friday" meant to her and how the film changed her life.

"As an 11-year-old, 'The Parent Trap' (1998) felt so big to me," she told The New York Times after the movie turned 20. "I threw myself into everything: accents, green screens, playing two people. So I felt comfortable after that. 'Freaky Friday' felt different because I was going through all of the phases of a 16-year-old [but playing a character who was a year younger]."

Lohan added, "This was the era of Avril Lavigne and punk, and I wanted to experience it. We did white stripes in my hair. I put [the colorist] Tracy Cunningham through hell because I took my nice red hair and just bleached it."

20 years after "Freaky Friday" was released, Jamie Lee Curtis opened up to The New York Times about the moment she received the call from her agent.

"I was in the middle of a book tour when my agent called," she told the newspaper. "An actress had been involved in the movie and chose not to do it; I was a replacement part. That was Thursday. I read the script on Friday, flew home on Saturday, had my hair dyed red Sunday, and was working Monday — with a 15-year-old and a 5-year-old at home, playing a 15-year-old."

"Had I had all the time in the world to prepare, I don’t think it would’ve been so good," she admitted. "I just had to be in my body. I was also newly sober and I was able to have a community within the movie-work world. That was a big deal for me."

"Freaky Friday 2" is scheduled for a theatrical release in 2025.
