Lindsay Lohan has and always will be an icon


It’s somehow been 20 years since Freaky Friday released which is slightly alarming, and the cast have all had stunning transformations! All of them seem to have either glowed up or just not aged and have gone on to star in big-budget films and trending Netflix shows.

So let’s go through each of the Freaky Friday cast transformations and see what they’ve been up to!

Lindsay is genuinely glowing, and being engaged and pregnant with her first child she has every right to be!

After Freaky Friday, she starred in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen and Mean Girls, which cemented her status as an early noughties icon. She also went on to movies like Just My Luck and Georgia Rule.

From 2007 to 2012, Lindsay publicly struggled with drug and alcohol addiction, entering rehab at five different facilities. She also dealt with a series of run-ins with the law, including charges of driving under the influence and cocaine possession.

In 2019 she starred on MTV’s Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club, documenting the launch of her beach club in Greece, and released a music single in 2020 called Back to Me. Since then she’s been living in the UAE for six years and has most recently appeared in Netflix’s Falling for Christmas.

This man can do no wrong in my eyes. He is still flawlessly rocking a leather jacket and braided necklace. Since appearing as lovestruck teen Jake in Freaky Friday, Chad Michael Murray has three children with his wife Sarah. His role in the early 2000s was as a full-time lothario, having appeared in Gilmore Girls and One Tree Hill.

Again, I swear there was something in this film that meant everybody from Freaky Friday looks absolutely gorgeous 20 years later. Since the film Christina hasn’t appeared in much, having a recurring role in Code Black and Training Day.
