NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: The now-married Lindsay Lohan discussed the momentous Bader Shammas proposal on 'The Drew Barrymore Show'.

The 'Falling for Christmas' star said, "He proposed to me on the set of 'Falling for Christmas'. Not on the set but off set while we were filming and I had to not tell anyone because I didn't want it to distract from our work and stuff so I was holding in that I was engaged, and I'm getting engaged in the movie." Lohan pointed out the irony and added, "I was like, 'I can't do this anymore.'" The 'Mean Girls' star had gotten engaged to Shammas in November 2021.

Lohan was able to gain popularity by playing the lead in a number of rom-com movies in the 1990s and 2000s. But she ceased performing by the end of the decade and far into the early 2010s, withdrew from the public eye, and maintained a low profile. Lohan has surprisingly regained the spotlight by playing the lead in the newest holiday movie on Netflix, 'Falling For Christmas'. The plot of this film revolves around Lohan's character, an engaged heiress who suffers from amnesia after suffering a skiing accident. Her recovery is handled by the lodge's proprietor (Chord Overstreet) and his daughter (Olivia Perez).
