Lindsay Lohan Wanted to Remake Dance Number in ‘Falling for Christmas’

Lindsay Lohan

Falling for Christmas was quite a one-horse sleigh ride for Lindsay Lohan. But it wasn’t the right time for the Mean Girls actress to remake her legendary musical performance of “Jingle Bell Rock” from the 2004 teen comedy.

The 2000s child star first suggested filming a scene honoring Mean Girls’ unforgettable talent show presentation. She provided performances alongside Rachel McAdams, Lacey Chabert and Amanda Seyfried.

She ended up singing a cover of “Jingle Bell Rock” for the Netflix’s Falling for Christmas soundtrack.

“It was my brilliant idea to bring it up in a conversation with the directors and the producers. I was like, ‘Oh, wouldn’t it be fun if we did a blooper reel at the end and we all kind of did the Christmas scene from the talent show in Mean Girls?'” Lohan stated during an appearance on Friday’s Live with Kelly & Ryan episode. 

“That was the first idea. Then I was like, ‘Let’s not actually do that,’ and then they said, ‘Oh, what about the song?'”

Mean Girls Idea

Lohan explained the pitch on Thursday’s The Tonight Show, saying she didn’t want to destroy Mean Girls‘ iconic legacy. So, ultimately, she stepped back from the idea.

“I shouldn’t have said it because it went straight to, ‘Oh, let’s recreate the Mean Girls talent show scene,'” she stated. “I was like, ‘Oh, no, no. You can’t touch Mean Girls! Sorry, you can’t do that.” 

Eventually, the 36-year-old actress sang a few lines from “Jingle Bell Rock” in the film. However, in the final debacle scene of the credits, the remake of Mean Girls’ dance number didn’t happen.

In the film, Lohan portrays a spoiled hotel magnate’s daughter. Later, following an incident leading to amnesia, she develops feelings for a handsome lodge owner (Chord Overstreet) merely ahead of the holidays.

Falling for Christmas is now streaming on Netflix.

Films Before Falling for Christmas

The feel-good movie icon was inked into Ford Models at a young age, three precisely. She made a limelight debut in 1998 in the Walt Disney Pictures movie The Parent Trap. In the film, she starred as twins attempting to get their parents back together. 

The breakthrough gave Lohan more projects like 2000’s Life-Size and 2002’s Get a Clue. Furthermore, it earned her roles in massive productions such as 2003’s Freaky Friday and 2004’s Confessions of Teenage Drama Queen

Other movies that earned Lohan her spot in the Hollywood fame are the following: 

Speak (2004) 

Little More Personal (Raw) (2005

Herbie: Fully Loaded (2005) 

Just My Luck (2006) 

A Prairie Home Companion (2006) 

Bobby (2006) 

Chapter 27 (2007) 

Eventually, her career began to flop after alleged misbehavior in the production of Georgie Rule in 2006. From there, headlines on her frequent court appearance, legal issues, and in-and-out in rehabilitation facilities. 

She recently returned to the big screen with Falling for Christmas.
