Lindsay was already hugely popular prior to the release of Just My Luck, starring in blockbuster films like The Parent Trap in 1998 and the teen comedy Mean Girls.

After the negative reception of Just My Luck, Lindsay decided to focus on minor roles in more mature films.

By the time she was 20, Lindsay was constantly making headlines for partying, substance abuse, and her love life.

Various arrests, court appearances for drunk driving and cocaine possession, as well as for spending time in prison, cost her the acting job and her reputation.

She was also accused of being difficult to work on set, often arriving late and with a hangover.
