EW Made the Mean Girls 10 Year Reunion a thing
If you’re a gay man, a girl, or a particularly sassy boyfriend of a certain age – then all of your hopes and dreams have come true! For it’s tenth anniversary (!!), Entertainment Weekly brought back Ms Norbury, Cady Heron, Regina George, Karen Smith and the most important character of all time – Gretchen Weiners.
They did a fancy photoshoot in which you will always wonder if they were all in the same room together, given that every single one* of the actresses in this picture are now busy and successful A-listers.
*Except from the two on the left. They are pretttty quiet.
In the issue, Amanda Seyfried – who now can ask for almost $8 Million a picture – talks about how she was really pretty nervous about the whole thing and she and Lacey Chabert got together to, uhm, listen to Dido.
I had just graduated high school! It was terrifying. I don’t know what I would have done without Lacey Chabert. She was my angel. She took me in, and we’d hang out in her trailer and listen to Dido.
Rachel McAdams – who can now ask for more than $5 Million a picture – acted like she was too famous now to remember the role that launched her.
I was staying at a bed-and-breakfast recently in the-middle-of-nowhere Ireland. And one of the owners’ granddaughters came up to me, and she gave me a piece of pink paper and she goes, “Can you write down just a few of your favorite Mean Girls quotes?” It was so sweet. I couldn’t think of any of them! It’s been 10 years! So I said, “Well, what are your favorites?” So she literally fed me all these lines, like “Is butter a carb?”
Tina Fey – who can ask for $300,000 an episode for a low rated tv show – gave some really interesting insights
I tried to use real names in writing because it’s just easier. My older brother’s good friend is Glenn Cocco.
Lacey Chabert – who can ask for a biscuit per movie – told us about Gretchen’s future
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.
And Lindsay Lohan – who has to actually pay people to employ her now – wanted to remind us that shes a THEATRE DAHLLLINGGG these days, and is not becoming a real life version of Elsa from American Horror Story.
I was leaving the playhouse the other day. [Lohan is starring in a revival of Speed-the-Plow in London’s West End.] These kids were outside, and someone said, “Do you know what day it is?” and someone said, “It’s October 3rd!” I was like, “What? I don’t understand!” I didn’t know what they meant. Then I realized it! [Laughs]
Mariah Carey and I have the same makeup artist. Whenever I see her, she does always say, “On Wednesdays, I wear pink.” She loves that movie.
What an absolutely riveting read. Bravo, EW, for all that hard journalistic digging. I have learned a whole lot from this! No one bothered to ask Lacey Chabert what the hell she’s doing these days? How did they explain to the other girls that the 45 year old claiming to be Lindsay Lohan was actually Lindsay Lohan? What the hell did the bribe Tina Fey with to be there? So many fucking questions!
It’s pretty fucked up to know that Karen turned out to be the biggest movie star of all of them. Karen! Karen from Mamma Mia! From Dear John! from Les Mis! Jesus, Karen is a fucking bona-fide movie star, where the hell did THAT come from.
In fairness, Karen had the best moment of the entire movie.
