Poor Lindsay Lohan. A game based off the best movie she ever did (Mean Girls) comes out this month, and she is not even on the cover. Writes PopEater:
Lindsay Lohan may have been the star of ‘Mean Girls,’ but she’s curiously missing from the cover for the upcoming Nintendo DS game based on the hit 2004 film. In lieu of Lohan, the cover instead features Rachel McAdams, Lacey Chabert and Amanda Seyfried, who played the trio of super-popular girls known as “the plastics.” The film follows the life of a new student named Cady Heron, played by Lohan.
Uinterview.com speculates Ms. Lohan was left off because her “image was deemed to0 expensive“… but how can that be? I thought Lindsay was broke to the point where she couldn’t pay rent…
I am sure Paramount could afford to pay her something out of the $14.99 price. Beggars can’t be choosers; I have a feeling Lindsay would be happy with just a dime for each sale.
I think PopEaters got it:
Whether this move by 505 Games and Nintendo was intentional, it appears to be part of larger pattern regarding the removal of Lohan from ‘Mean Girls’ promotion altogether. Recent promos for ‘Mean Girls’ airing on television have put the focus on McAdams and her crew, leaving Lohan out of the commercials altogether.
Tsk, tsk Paramount. Not having the main character on the game cover is one thing, but to remove her from all promos is just cold…. too cold for words.
