It still feels like we know each other so well, because we spend so much time with each other and we discussed how it’s been working with each other. That it’s been so continuous over the years. That it’s, it feels like we’re all still good friends, which was really nice to catch up with everyone. So that was really fun!”

She also talked about Broadway aspirations: “I would definitely consider Broadway. I mean, I did Speed The Plow in the West End in London.

Lindsay Lohan & Rachel McAdams Recreate Famous 'Mean Girls' Phone Call With Lacey Chabert & Amanda Seyfried

Lindsay Lohan has reunited the Plastics to recreate that iconic four-way phone call in the Mean Girls movie.

Rachel McAdams, Lacey Chabert and Amanda Seyfried all returned as their characters for the scene, which Lindsay shared on her Instagram account.

The infamous scene sees Lindsay‘s Cady trying to catch Rachel‘s Regina George badmouthing Gretchen, played by Lacey, while she is secretly listening on the phone call.

After hearing the nasty things Regina has to say about her, Gretchen then dials in Amanda‘s Karen to gossip about it.

Karen then gets a call from Regina, who once again expresses her dislike for Gretchen.

The phone goes back and forth between all four of them, as they break promises, lie about just what was said and more.

The scene ends with Karen’s iconic fake cough and Regina’s equally memorable response: “Boo, you wh***!”

The iconic phone call was recreated with the purpose of urging more people to get out an vote in the upcoming election in November.

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!
