Lindsay Lohan was in the running for 'Hangover' role

Lindsay Lohan missed out on a role in "The Hangover" after director Todd Phillips determined she was too young to play a Las Vegas stripper.

The actress was 22-years-old when she met with the director and discussed playing the character Jade in the 2009 comedy. Phillips opted not to hire Lohan and cast Heather Graham instead, and he now tells The Hollywood Reporter, "Honestly, it felt like she ended up being too young for what we were talking about."

But the director wants to make it clear Lohan didn't turn the role down: "People love to attack her for everything, like, 'Ha, she didn't see how great 'The Hangover' was going to be. She turned it down.' She didn't turn it down. She loved the script, actually. It really was an age thing."

Phillips also reveals he had Jake Gyllenhaal in mind for a role in the first "Hangover" film, but ended up changing his mind. The third and final film in "The Hangover" trilogy will hit theaters this summer.

Jade was cast right.  Lindsay was definitely too young for that role.
