"My dad always thought Lindsay Lohan had a twin, and it was only a few years ago that I told him she was NOT a twin. He didn't believe me until I showed him all the proof."


3. The Pismo Beach disaster from Clueless was actually totally made up by Amy Heckerling, the movie's writer.

"When I found out Drew Seeley was Troy Bolton’s singing voice in High School Musical, I was shocked. Zac Efron’s lip-synching was so convincing, I would've never caught on."

Some girls and I were sitting around our dorm talking about the top places we wanted to visit, and I legitimately said Genovia was at the top of my list.
