Tina Fey, Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, and Lacey Chabert spoke with the magazine about the casting process, bonding with each other on set, and the movie's quotability, and there were some pretty great revelations during the conversation. Here, we've collected the best bits of trivia from the reunion:
- Lohan originally wanted to play Regina -- and McAdams wanted to play Cady. Fey also initially thought that Lohan would make a good Regina, before director Mark Waters and producer Lorne Michaels stepped in and sorted the girls into the proper roles.
- Lohan proved her teenage girl bonafides on set by obsessing over pink Uggs and discussing her then-intense rivalry with fellow tween queen Hilary Duff. Per EW:
- The moment where Mrs. George (Amy Poehler) has her fake breasts bitten by her chihuahua was achieved through some dog treat trickery. "They, like, pinned a piece of a cocktail wiener into her bra," McAdams revealed, adding that she was thoroughly impressed by Poehler's ability to keep a straight face during the silly scene. "She was such a pro through it. She's trying to do her lines and being so professional, and this dog is chomping on her fake boob."
FEY: I remember 17-year-old Lindsay was on a mission to find pink Uggs. That was, like, what she was working on. And there was one day where she tried to explain to Amy and me her beef with Hilary Duff, but we couldn't crack it. But we were pretending we could follow it.
LOHAN: I had been online trying to get pink Uggs because I had a pink pleated skirt in the scene where I fall into the garbage can. I was like, "I need pink Uggs!" I mean, I was rhinestoning my phone at the time with Swarovski crystals. [Laughs] So it was somewhat Method.
- Fey named Glenn Coco after a real person: her brother's friend, who lives in Los Angeles and works as a film editor. "I imagine it's a pain in the butt for him," Fey told EW.
- Lacey Chabert's nephew was born on October 3, and her brother's co-workers freaked out about the coincidence.
- At the time of the film's 2004 release, Fey initially thought the idea of a sequel was silly, but now somewhat regrets not jumping at the chance. Today, "it's too late" for one, she says. Lohan, on the other hand, is totally on board. "Why can't we do a sequel?" she told EW. "Of us all grown up. To work with everyone involved in 'Mean Girls' again would be an honor. It was such a good experience. I think it would be really cool." McAdams and Chabert would also do a follow-up, but Seyfried says it would be a bad idea.
