Ok So Now Both Rachel McAdams & Lindsay Lohan Are Down For A ‘Mean Girls’ Sequel
You better pull out all your pink clothes for Wednesdays because Rachel McAdams has also voiced her support for a Mean Girls sequel, just days after Lindsay Lohan put on record it “was really what [she] wanted”.
Rachel, who played head Plastic mean girl, Regina George, said she’d love to see where her character would be now, a decade and a half since the original film.
“It would be fun to play Regina George later in her life and see where life took her!” she said, speaking with the Heroes of Health: COVID-19 Stream-a-thon.

According to the actress, the idea has been deliberated, though “not quite seriously”. We reckon Tina Fey should call an assembly on the gym bleachers to discuss.
When asked about Mean Girls’ timeless resonance on millennial audiences, Rachel was quick to acknowledge its undeniable cultural impact (*cough* my high school Burn Book).
“Let’s hope Mean Girls has helped girls to be nicer to each other, not the other way around,” she said. “I feel really lucky to have been a part of something that’s stuck around—even a little bit. That was never anything I imagined happening in life. So yeah, it’s strange and surreal still.”
Lindsay Lohan, who played the lead role of Cady Heron, told David Spade on Lights Out with David Spade that she’d been hoping for her role reprisal but it’s out of her control.
“I wanted to come back with a Mean Girls 2 with the same cast, work with Tina [Fey], and the whole crew again, and [Mean Girls director] Mark Waters. That was really what I wanted; I was excited to do that. But that's all in their hands, really,” she said.
Now Mean Girls 2 does actually exist as a standalone to the original and was released to an extremely poor reception back in 2011 – honestly, we’ve all probably tried to remove it from our memory (it has a 31% approval rate on Rotten Tomatoes).
The trailer shows a pretty similar storyline to the OG, only this time introducing another rival group to The Plastics, the Anti-Plastics. Dun, dun, duuuuuuuun!
We’re sure if Lindsay, Rachel, Tina, Amanda Seyfried, Johathan Bennett and the whole 2004 squad got back together, it would skyrocket to success.
That would be so, GLENN COCO.
We’d actually never be more excited to attend a high school reunion. Can we pencil in the date October 3rd?
