While browsing through the video-sharing site — where notable personalities, including actors, musicians, reality TV stars, and athletes, send personalized messages to their fans — we stumbled upon Lohan’s page. For $375, she’ll record a video message on whatever you would like her to talk about, whether it’s “your favorite Mean Girls line” or some “business advice.” What kind of business advice she’s offering is unclear, but we doubt it would have anything to do with organizing your stock portfolio (Insider, on the other hand, has you covered on that front).
To be fair, while Lohan is no Warren Buffett, she does have some apparent business cred. Lohan founded a beach club in Greece in 2016, which was also the site of a reality TV show featuring Lohan herself. And, in September 2020, she posted on Instagram about starting a new business in the United Arab Emirates called #BeYourOwnBoss. (Never mind that the Greek beach club has since closed and she hasn’t shared any details about her Middle East venture since that Instagram post).

However, Lohan is anything but a mean girl on Cameo. In the personalized messages you can preview on Cameo’s site, she’s earnest in her sweet birthday messages and friendly hellos, offering nuggets of confidence and inspiration.
What other celebrities are on Cameo?
Besides Lohan, there’s an array of popular personalities you can hire to film a custom message as a gift to a friend or to yourself. Generally, rates range from $15 for former “Pretty Little Liars” actor Bryce Johnson to $1,200 for “Shark Tank” investor Kevin “Mr. Wonderful” O’Leary (if you want “real” business advice). Some other popular celebrities include:
- Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, NBA legend, $500
- Gabby Douglas, Olympic gymnast, $800
- Brad Garrett, “Everybody Loves Raymond” actor, $400
- Ne-Yo, singer, $325
- Bob Saget, actor and comedian, $349
- Hannah Ann Sluss, contestant from “The Bachelor” season 24, $95
How does Cameo work?
If you’d like Lohan or another personality to create a message, head to their profile page and click on the “request” button. You will see the price and the response time — some will respond in two days, while others will expedite your video in 24 hours. You can also check out their rating and reviews from other users. Cameo says all accepted requests will be completed within seven days.
Some celebrities, like actor Michael Weatherly of “NCIS” and soccer star Mia Hamm, participate on Cameo to support a charity; you’ll see a “charity” label on their profile image and their supported charity in their profile. Proceeds from these Cameo hires are donated, so you’d be helping to support some worthy causes.
