‘Mean Girls’ Cast Reunites After 16 Years And It’s So Fetch
October 3rd will always be Mean Girls Day, and this year, there was an extra special surprise in store as the actors from the original movie all came back together to urge fans to vote ahead of the US presidential election in November.
You can watch the reunion here:
Lindsay Lohan (Cady Heron), Tina Fey (Ms Norbury), Rachel McAdams (Regina George), Amanda Seyfriend (Karen Smith) and friends all virtually assembled for the surprise reunion, which was moderated by Katie Couric, and discussed their favourite moments from the 2004 movie.
Apparently, when offered the part of Cady Heron, Lindsay Lohan was initially drawn to the role of Regina George. "I really wanted to play Regina because I had just done a movie Confessions of a Teenage Drama queen where I was kind of a weirdo in it, and I was like, "I wanna do a movie where I get to be pretty and dress pretty!" she said.
Thankfully she eventually fell in love with Cady and her trapeze of emotions, which the actress said resonated with her. "I mean during the process of filming for me, in between the movie I had done before and Mean Girls, I had gone back to school, and it was a really weird transition for me. I was kind of an outcast, so I really related to it when I had to play Cady," she added.

Queen bee Regina aka Rachel McAdams said of her role: "It was cathartic - not being exactly queen bee in high school, to then later in life go back to those memories and try to channel them through this character was therapeutic."
Amanda Seyfried also said she was thrilled when asked to play "dumb blonde" Karen because it was similar to how she used to act in high school - we'd love to see that!
In closing, Chabert encouraged fans to vote in the "Mean Girls" way: "Vote on November 3rd. That would be so fetch."
An original classic teen movie, Mean Girls has gained a cult following since its release in 2004, famous for its memorable lines including "on Wednesdays we wear pink", "you can't sit with us and "stop trying to make fetch happen", which we still say to this day, tbh.
The screenplay was later adapted into a Broadway musical in 2017, and the musical is being made into a movie version. It can't come soon enough!
