What did the cast of ‘Mean Girls’ say during the reunion?
They shared about all their experiences throughout their movie and how they took upon the project. Lindsay Lohan played the character of Cady Heron, who is a transfer student who has only been home-schooled all her life. Lohan mentioned that she found Regina George’s character much interesting but slowly she started loving Cady. She also said that during her school days she used to be an outcast and could relate to the character.
Talking about Regina George, no one could have played it better than McAdams. She was the perfect fit and had everything that attracted the audience and made her the villain. She is the original mean girl and no one else could replace her ever. Gretchen Wieners was played by Lacey Chabert and she mentioned that she immediately fell in love with the character. The desperation and the need for approval from everyone were what made her unique and her naive nature made her likable. Karen Smith, the character that Amanda Seyfried played was a dumb blonde who never got into any drama. She said that she was Karen during her high school years and was thrilled to act it out in the movie.
