Lindsay Lohan, the actress who played Cady in the 2004 movie Mean Girls, was really upset and let down by a reference made to her in the new film based on the Broadway musical version. Her spokesperson, Leslie Sloane, expressed her disappointment in a statement shared with People and other media outlets.
In this new Mean Girls movie, which was directed by Samantha Jayne and Arturo Perez Jr. and written by Tina Fey (who also wrote the original film), Lohan has a brief appearance. The reference that hurt her feelings was in this cameo.
The Hollywood Reporter has tried to get comments from Paramount and Tina Fey’s representative about this situation.
The cast of the new Mean Girls movie features Reneé Rapp, Auliʻi Cravalho, Jaquel Spivey, Avantika, Bebe Wood, Christopher Briney, Jenna Fischer, Busy Philipps, and Jon Hamm.
