It’s been 10 years since Mean Girls hit theaters, which means for the past decade, we’ve been quoting the Tina Fey-written comedy to no end. And really, we wouldn’t have it any other way. Of course there is a great sense of nostalgia for the film, understandable with it being “so fetch” and all.
Entertainment Weekly got the film’s original cast together for a reunion to talk all the behind-the-scenes action that took place while making the movie. The blossoming friendships, the inside jokes, the casting changes and more. In the lengthy interview, we learned a whole lot about Mean Girls that we didn’t know. And that’s impressive because we’ve memorized like, every line in the movie already.
Below, five new things we learned about the film.
1. Glenn Cocco Is a REAL PERSON
“I tried to use real names in writing because it’s just easier,” Tina said. “My older brother’s good friend is Glenn Cocco. He’s a film editor in Los Angeles, and I imagine it’s a pain in the butt for him.”
2. There Is Such a Thing as Mean Girls Day, Which Is Very Confusing to the Cast
Thanks to a line in the film where Cady Heron tells Aaron Samuels the date, October 3rd has become “Mean Girls Day” for fans all over. “I was leaving the playhouse the other day. [Lohan is starring in a revival of Speed-the-Plow in London’s West End],” Lindsay told EW. “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!”
3. How They Got That Chihuahua to Munch on Amy Poehler’s Nipples in One Scene
Of course, Rachel McAdams had the deets. “They, like, pinned a piece of a cocktail wiener into her bra. I thought this dog was going to tear her apart. It was very effective. 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. I’ll never forget that.”
4. Lindsay Lohan Really Wanted Cady Heron to Wear Pink UGGs
“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.”
5. Rachel McAdams Has an Idea of What Regina George May Be Doing Right Now
“Regina is a Real Housewife. She’d have too much time on her hands, for sure. She’s probably found all her other Reginas.”
