Lindsay Lohan Takes Down "Mean Girls" Movie Musical Payday (EXCLUSIVE)

Long before the term "fetch" was coined, Lindsay Lohan was fetch. Therefore, it shouldn't be shocking that Paramount paid the actor a hefty sum for a cameo in the newest "Mean Girls."

According to insiders, Lohan, who rose to prominence in the early years of Hollywood after starring in the 2004 movie of the same name,

earned roughly $500,000 for just thirty minutes of work in the most recent production, a musical featuring a new cast of Plastics led by Reneé Rapp and Angourie Rice.

Paramount declined to comment. A Lohan representative refused to comment.

At the January 8 New York premiere of the film, which was written by Tina Fey, Lohan's unexpected cameo received raucous cheers.

In her scene, Lohan makes a full circle for the "Mean Girls" franchise, which also gave rise to a Broadway musical,

by going back to the math competition that was the film's denouement. To walk the red carpet, the actor also took a plane from Dubai.

Similar to other studios, Paramount has been keen to capitalize on nostalgia, courting former cast members to reprise brief but significant parts in new movies like 2017's "Baywatch.
