“Mean Girls” turned ten years old last month, and Entertainment Weekly celebrated with a reunion: Tina Fey (who wrote the film and played teacher Ms. Norbury), Lindsay Lohan (Cady Heron), Rachel McAdams (Regina George), Lacey Chabert (Gretchen Wieners) and Amanda Seyfried (Karen Smith) gathered to talk about the making of the film, its impact, and where the Plastics might be today:
SEYFRIED: Karen would manage or own a store that sells really cool dog attire, like Swarovski dog collars and Halloween costumes for animals. She’s probably really focused.
LOHAN: Cady’s with Oprah in Africa working at children’s schools with a family, teaching girls to be nice to each other.
CHABERT: Gretchen is probably running the Toaster Strudel empire. She is probably married and has, like, seven babies right now. She and Jason worked it out. She has very big curly hair.
McADAMS: Regina is a Real Housewife. She’d have too much time on her hands, for sure. She’s probably found all her other Reginas.
(Fey, by the way, said that Glenn Cocco’s name was borrowed from a friend of her brother’s. “He’s a film editor in Los Angeles, and I imagine it’s a pain in the butt for him. Someone said to me you could buy a shirt at Target that says “You go, Glenn Cocco!” That was unexpected.”)
