Did you know Lindsay Lohan is making a return to film? After years out of the silver screen, Lohan will star alongside Chord Overstreet in Netflix’s latest Christmas film to be announced. While the film is yet to be named and will come next year, the occasion calls for a look back at the star’s most popular films. Here are the best so far.
The fortune cookie that started it all. While Lohan had already gained attention in Hollywood for her acting in The Parent Trap, Freaky Friday solidified Lohan’s success in the acting industry. The 2003 film that co-starred Jamie Lee Curtis showed her maturity on-screen. Although the plotline of the film revolved around Lohan and Curtis switching lives after the “magic” of a fortune cookie took place, the magic was in the commercial success of the film with only a $26 million budget and over $160 million in earnings.
It could have been argued that Freaky Friday was the pop culture classic in Lohan’s filmography, but then came Mean Girls. Although the actress was not Regina George, the mean girl who had it all, Lohan proved that nice people don’t always finish last. She showed that she can carry her own once again alongside a star with just as big of a spotlight on them. And the taglines from the film we still have in our vocabulary are just as memorable.
The Parent Trap
If you did not know who Lindsey Lohan was before Mean Girls, all you had to say was The Parent Trap. The star portrayed Hallie Parker and Annie James – twin sisters. Even though she starred in the Walt Disney classic many years before she became a household name, the film also tested her acting ability showing the actress using a British accent with ease. Adding Hollywood staples like Dennis Quaid to the mix was an early determinant that she was set for stardom.
