Rachel McAdams Was 'In Awe' Of Lindsay Lohan During 'Mean Girls' Filming

Rachel McAdams might've played queen bee in "Mean Girls" but the actress says she was in quiet awe of another talent on set.

When word spread that Lindsay Lohan said she was intimidated by McAdams while filming the comedy 10 years ago, the 35-year-old star said she was surprised.

She told Allure magazine, "If anything, I was in awe of her talent. I looked at her as this experienced actor, and she had great comedic timing, so natural. It's just funny to hear that because you never know what people are thinking. We all try to act like we've got it together."

The movie's director said McAdam's focus made Lohan "very shy" and "nervous."

And she was right to be!

Since then, McAdams' intense focus has gotten her more than 10 major awards and twice as many nominations.
