Lohan played both identical twins Hallie Parker and Annie James in The Parent Trap, who both realize they are identical twins and separated at birth.

The Parent Trap was a modest hit at the box office, earning $92.1 million worldwide during its theatrical run.

She would go on to star in yet another Disney remake, Freaky Friday, with Jamie Lee Curtis and then Mean Girls, which rocketed her to stardom.
