Aaron Samuels From "Mean Girls" Didn't Recognize Lindsay Lohan In A Picture And It Got Awkward

"That's not Lindsay."

Posted on

Okay, you're a human on this planet in 2017, so I assume you've seen the film Mean Girls at least once in your life.

Paramount Pictures

Well, remember Aaron Samuels? The hottie Cady had a crush on? He sat in front of her in math class? On Oct. 3, he asked her what day it was??? Y'know, this guy:

Paramount Pictures

Well, the actor who played Aaron, Jonathan Bennett, just attended a Rooftop Cinema Club screening of the film at The Montalban Theater in Hollywood. And in an interview with TooFab... something very ~peculiar~ happened.

TooFab

Jonathan was shown a picture of Lindsay Lohan, and he did not know it was her.

TooFab

"That's not Lindsay!" he said, as soon as the picture came out.

TooFab

"That is Lindsay," the interviewer can be heard saying off-camera.

TooFab

Jonathan still didn't believe her, pulling the picture out of her hands and examining it up close.

TooFab

"Lindsay?! Come here. Come here," he said.

He then seemed to realize his mistake, and — somewhat awkwardly — attempted a recovery.

TooFab

He tried his best!

TooFab

He...said he was proud of her, and that she had done a "good job."

TooFab

He did ramble on a bit longer than necessary, tbh. But he was trying!

TooFab

And then he finally, mercifully turned the page — to a picture of himself.

TooFab

Look, it could've honestly been a compliment — Lindsay is looking good these days! But still...kinda awkward.

And that's that about that.
