Lindsay Lohan may have looked up to Rachel McAdams’ ‘Mean Girls’ character Regina George, but in real life, it was McAdams who looked up to Lohan — a tidbit she revealed in the August 2014 issue of Allure.

“If anything, I was in awe of her talent,” the ‘Notebook’ actress revealed about working with Lohan on the set of ‘Mean Girls.’ “I looked at her as this experienced actor, and she had great comedic timing.”

According to Us Weekly, McAdams also responded to rumors that Lohan was intimated by her on set.

“It’s just funny to hear that because you never know what people are thinking,” she said. “We all try to act like we’ve got it together.”

The actress also briefly touched on her ex Ryan Gosling and his ‘Hey Girl’ meme (“I know you’re not going to believe me,” she apparently told the mag sheepishly, “but I don’t follow it”), and also opened up about working with the late Philip Seymour Hoffman on their upcoming movie, ‘A Most Wanted Man’.

“I learned so much from him. … He really took me under his wing. You feel very taken care of, but at the same time there’s an element of danger: There’s a crackle in every scene,” she revealed (quote via Us Weekly). “He makes sure the stakes are very high, and there’s a safety there, too. He had so much natural, raw talent, but he worked so hard, too. He really worked for it and didn’t let up. I’m sure that wasn’t easy.”
