When thinking about classic movies from the early 2000s, Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen certainly comes to mind. The adorably sweet and charmingly unforgettable film tells a story of a teenage girl named Mary who tells people she goes by the name Lola. She has massive aspirations of becoming famous someday.
When her family relocates from New York City to a suburban town in New Jersey, she feels like her plans are being derailed. Instead of fading into invisibility, Lola goes above and beyond to stand out from the crowd. Sometimes, that means she even tells a few white lies to get ahead. What is the cast of Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen up to today since its 2004 premiere?
Lindsay Lohan played Lola.
The early 2000s was a huge era for Lindsay Lohan, who also had leading roles in movies like Mean Girls, Freaky Friday, and Herbie Fully Loaded. In terms of her more recent projects, she returned to the spotlight in MTV’s Lindsay Lohan Beach Club in 2019. The reality TV show shed light on what it was like to manage her day club in Mykonos, Greece.
She became the subject of intense media scrutiny after battling substance-abuse issues, legal troubles, and rehab stints, but as of now, she is truly doing well for herself. She recently signed a two-picture deal with Netflix! Lindsay’s been in a relationship with a man named Bader Shammas for four years, and they got engaged in 2021.
Megan Fox played Carla.
Megan Fox's role in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen obviously wasn’t the biggest role she ever landed.
