Happy National “Mean Girls” Day!
In case you don’t recall, October 3rd is a very important day: it’s when Aaron Samuels asked Cady Heron what day it was.
It may be a silly “holiday,” but we’ll take any opportunity to remember one of the best comedies of all time. Let’s take a look at where the actors who brought us these iconic characters are today!
Lindsay Lohan: Cady Heron
Since her iconic portrayal of Cady Heron, Lindsay narrated and presented a television documentary titled “Lindsay Lohan’s Indian Journey,” on human trafficking in India, and starred in the OWN Network’s series “Lindsay.”
She has since appeared on “Anger Management,” “Glee,” and “2 Broke Girls,” as well as played Liz Taylor in the biographical film “Liz & Dick.”
Rachel McAdams: Regina George
The queen bee of the Plastics and writer of the burn book, Rachel McAdams, made Regina the girl you loved to hate. And now, she’s now one of the most well regarded actors in the business!
2004 was a landmark year for her, with “Mean Girls” and “The Notebook” being released.
Since then, Rachel’s been in romantic comedies like “About Time” and “Morning Glory,” and switched it up with more dramatic roles in the likes of the Oscar winning “Spotlight” and the second season of “True Detective.” She can do anything!
Amanda Seyfried: Karen Smith
Amanda is incredibly prolific, starring in at least two films each year. She’s carved out a niche for herself as a musical star in the film adaptations of both “Mamma Mia” and “Les Miserables.”
She’s also starred in “Red Riding Hood,” “Letters to Juliet,” and “Dear John,” and has ESPN or something.
Lacey Chabert: Gretchen Weiners
The final member of the Plastics is actually best known for her work as a voice actor in animated TV shows – she’s Eliza Thornberry for crying out loud!
She’s also voiced Princess Elise from the “Sonic the Hedgehog” and Gwen Stacy in animated series “The Spectacular Spider-Man.”
Tina Fey: Mrs. Norbury
Tina Fey is kind of a big deal. Not only was she the math teacher on screen, Fey actually wrote the script! She has since gone on to create, produce and star in “30 Rock,” and co-hosted the Golden Globes with her partner in crime Amy Poehler – twice.
We pretty much wanna be Tina when we grow up.
Lizzie Caplan: Janis Ian
Lizzie currently stars on “Masters of Sex,” where her impressive portrayal of Virginia Johnson has landed her nominations for a Primetime Emmy Award, Satellite Award and Critics’ Choice Television Award, all for Outstanding Lead Actress. GO LIZZIE!
We love you, Mean Girls!
