Jonathan Bennett Says the 'Mean Girls' Zoom Reunion Was 'Awkward'

Jonathan Bennett is reflecting on the Mean Girls Zoom reunion.

One week after the Mean Girls cast came together to celebrate the film’s 16th anniversary, Jonathan, who played Aaron Samuels, revealed what it was like to E!’s Daily Pop.

“It was a moment!” he said of the reunion.

“Because here’s the thing…we haven’t all been together in 16 years, and to all be together for the first time, and do it on Zoom — already it’s awkward to see each other for the first time; you want to say so many things — but then when you’re on a Zoom call, it’s even more awkward because you’re waiting for the person to talk and you don’t want to interrupt,” he went on to say.

“You’re just like, ‘Whatever you wanna say!’” he recalled, adding that it was still “super fun to see everyone” he worked with on the movie.

“It really did give us, like, a sense of nostalgia seeing everybody and being next to each other, like, on screen. It brought back so many, like, high school memories. You know, when you run into an old classmate from high school? It was really fun.”

'Mean Girls' Cast Reunites to Encourage People to Vote - Watch the Reunion!

The cast of Mean Girls reunited for a special reason and you can watch the full video here!

Katie Couric brought the entire cast together after reaching her goal of getting 5,000 people to register to vote as part of HeadCount’s Good to Vote campaign.

Lindsay Lohan, Tina Fey, Amanda Seyfried, Lacey Chabert, Lizzy Caplan, Daniel Franzese, Jonathan Bennett, Tim Meadows, Ana Gasteyer, and Rajiv Surendra all participated in the reunion. Rachel McAdams, who is currently pregnant, was unable to attend the reunion, but she did a solo Zoom call with Katie that was included.

Amanda had to lay down during the call as she just gave birth to her second child, which Katie noted at the beginning.

Tina revealed that she had to change lines in the movie to get a PG-13 rating. She said, “We felt it was important to get that PG-13 so I had to keep peeling that away. I remember one of the weird ones, we couldn’t say… in the cafeteria Jason Weems says ‘is your cherry popped?’ and they wouldn’t let us say it. I do think because it was girls and not boys MPAA were like ‘no,’ they couldn’t handle it. So we had to change ‘is your cherry popped’ to a weird audio replacement of ‘is your muffin buttered,’ which means nothing.”

Take a look back at what the cast looked like in 2004 at the red carpet premiere of the movie!
