10 Mean Girls Facts that are So Fetch
It’s hard to believe Mean Girls is over 10 years old. It’s a staple movie in every collection due to its funny one lines and over-the-top characters, which is why we’re taking a look back at one of the funniest films to ever hit the big screen.
1. Age is Just a Number
Amy Poehler (Regina’s Mom) is only seven years older than Rachel McAdams (Regina), who is eight years older than Lindsay Lohan (Cady).
2. The White House
The White House once tweeted a quote from Mean Girls: “Bo, stop trying to make fetch happen”.
3. American Idol
There’s a deleted scene out there where Damian auditions on American Idol. The actor who played him, Daniel Franzese, once said that Simon Cowell calls Damian chubby so he runs up on stage and punches him. We would love to see that!
4. The Alternative Story
The Burn Book done some bad things over the course of the film – but luckily it never landed Miss Norbury in prison. It was originally planned that Kevin G is caught by Miss Norbury for selling ecstasy. She confiscates the drugs and places them in her desk, but is arrested by the police when she is accused of being a drug dealer in the Burn Book.
5. Regina’s Hair
In order to play a blonde bitch, Rachel McAdams wore a wig for the role. We’re guessing her mom’s chest hair was real.
6. Mariah Carey
Mariah Carey has often told of her love of Mean Girls, and adores it so much that she included quotes from the movie in the intro to her song “Obsessed”. Listen here.
7. Bitchy Lohan
Lindsay Lohan was originally cast to play Regina George, but following the success of her film Freaky Friday, she asked to switch to the role of Cady Heron to avoid being perceived as a bitch. It didn’t do Rachel McAdams’s career any harm!
Did we also mention that Amanda Seyfried, who went on to play Karen, was also originally supposed to play Cady, but her role changed when Lindsay Lohan’s fame skyrocketed.
8. Kevin G
Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, who played Miss Norbury and is the movie’s writer, taught Rajiv Surenda (Kevin G) how to rap. What’s even better is they recreated it for our eyes and ears. Watch it now, losers!
9. Background Check
Tina Fey envisioned backgrounds for all the Mean Girl characters. So if an actor had a question about their role, she could easily fill in the blanks.
10. Gretchen Weiner
While there were multiple choices for many of the Mean Girl roles, Lacy Chabert, who played Gretchen Weiner, was the first and only choice for her character. Scarlett Johansson and Ashley Tisdale auditioned for the role of Karen, while James Franco was considered as Aaron Samuels.
