The “Mean Girls” star and Mykonos club owner shared an image of Ariel and Ursula from Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” with the words, “My dream Role with #MerylStreep” emblazoned above them. She also included the image in her Instagram story.
Fans of Lohan have been responding across social media with both excitement and words of affirmation, while critics have suggested the 32-year-old is too old to play Ariel:
Previously, Streep and Lohan starred together in 2006′s “A Prairie Home Companion.”
Streep told W magazine about Lohan at the time that “Lindsay is completely, visibly living in front of the camera” and that she reminded the Oscar winner of Cher as a young performer.
“She’s in command of the art form,” Streep said of Lohan’s chops. “Whatever acting is, I don’t know what it is, she’s in command of it. I think she could do anything she puts her mind to.”
Streep would certainly make an aces Ursula, but Lohan’s reputation suggests she might be a bit tougher to manage on set than Streep’s characterization implies. Lohan has been cited as difficult to work with, and the Disney Channel didn’t ask her back for “Life Size 2” with Tyra Banks.
“I’m going to really hate myself for saying this, but I think by women speaking against all these things, it makes them look weak when they are very strong women,” Lohan said to British newspaper The Times.
She added later that while she’s “very supportive of women,” she doesn’t like “attention-seekers” or, as The Times put it, “trial by social media.” She has since apologized.
At any rate, we’d be curious to see this come to life so ... uh, Disney? You in?
