While she didn’t say anything negative about the shoot, the actress believes that if they were to re-do it now, it’d be an entirely different experience. She added, “I mean, if you think about getting all of these actresses in a room today and just hanging out together, I feel like it’d be so different.”
Lindsay isn’t the only star recently reflecting on the nearly 20-year-old cover. While taking a lie detector test as part of a Vanity Fair video last month, Hilary shared her own version of events while on set, calling it a “very high-stress, anxiety-inducing day.”
Lindsay and Hilary’s comments come almost eight years after fellow cover star Evan shared she “felt like meat” during the photoshoot in a series of since-deleted tweets from 2014.
“I was almost in tears after this shoot. They tried that dress on me, I wasn’t comfortable but they told me there was no time…cause everyone else took up too much time with their fittings,” she shared at the time. “I was 15 and felt for the first time my identity being erased and the pressure…to shut up and do what you are told. I felt like meat. Since then, I have found my voice. Never again.”
