Her next major motion picture was Disney’s Freaky Friday remake in 2003 which was a success at the box office and with critics. With Mean Girls in 2004, another critical and commercial success, she became a household name and a frequent target of paparazzi and tabloids.
The two films earned her several MTV Movie Awards and Teen Choice Awards.
