In July of 1998, Disney’s remake of The Parent Trap hit theaters. The movie introduced audiences to Lindsay Lohan, a sassy redheaded tween with an undeniably bright future; EW’s Lisa Schwarzbaum praised the young actress’s “natural, pleasurable 1990s hipness,” saying that little Lohan was a worthy successor to the original film’s Hayley Mills.
Of course, we all know what happened to Lindsay over the next 14 years. The star’s troubles give a poignant context to the following exclusive clip, which shows a 10-year-old Lohan ruminating about the nature of fame. “It’s weird. It’s definitely weird,” she tells an interviewer with a shy smile. “But I don’t want to, like, change, or let anything go to my head or anything. I want to try to stay normal…. I just want to stay a normal kid, go to college, go to regular school for now, and stuff like that.”
