Rachel McAdams On Working With Lindsay Lohan In 'Mean Girls': I Was In Awe Of Her Talent

Rachel McAdams has opened up about what it was like to work with Lindsay Lohan in 2004's "Mean Girls," and the actress said her experience with LiLo was positive.

"If anything, I was in awe of her talent," Rachel, who played head Mean Girl Regina George in the hilarious movie, told Allure magazine in their August issue. "I looked at her as this experienced actor, and she had great comedic timing, so natural."

Rachel said she was surprised to hear that Lindsay was intimidated by her at the time.

"It’s just funny to hear that because you never know what people are thinking," Rachel told the mag. "We all try to act like we’ve got it together."

The actress also shared one of her most terrifying on-screen moment – her big screen debut role in Rob Schneider's "The Hot Chick."

"I remember standing backstage, dressed like a mechanic. I had a pink bikini on underneath, grease on my face, and I just remember breathing deep and thinking, Oh my God, I have to go out there and do this striptease, as a man…as a woman," she recalled. "How did I get here? It was probably one of the scariest moments I’ve had in my career. It stretched me in ways I could have never imagined. Literally."
