‘Freaky’ Disney bow becomes teen dream

Lohan, Curtis celebrate 'Friday' on a Monday

Teen girls squealed with delight to simply be in the vicinity of “Freaky Friday” star Lindsay Lohan and the Mouse’s other femme idol, Hilary Duff, during Monday’s preem at El Capitan.

“It’s amazing to have all this attention,” 17-year-old Lohan said at the Hollywood & Highland after party across the street, where guests designed their own “Freaky Friday” flip-flops and sang karaoke.

Jamie Lee Curtis said this “Freaky” rendition of a mother and daughter switching personalities is more of a “real story with a touch of fantasy” compared to the original, which “was more of a farce.” Curtis was accompanied by her own mother, Janet Leigh, and daughter, Annie Guest.
