She has shared that she loved fashion from a very young age, and while looking back at her looks, she recalled how her one demand caused issues while playing identical twins in the 1998 film. During a 2022 interview with Vogue, the actress shared she wanted to wear nail polish as Hallie, one of the twin characters in the movie.

The color of the nail polish had to be specifically blue Hard Candy, which, according to the actress, was a “big deal” at the time. While her demand was fulfilled, and she did wear the blue Hard Candy nail polish, it did not turn out to be a great idea as she had to portray both identical twins.

I remember testing when we had to do the nail polish to see how long the blue hard candy nail polish would take to put on and take off,” she shared during the reunion. The actress also stated that she felt a lot different after putting on the wig to portray the character of Annie James.

“The Parent Trap, it’s beautiful, it’s timeless and it’s special,” she further stated. Filmmaker Nancy Meyers also shared how they pulled off having Lohan as twins on the screen, with the help of her body double Erin Mackey, who was constantly on the set.
