Christina Dogas Staff WriterIt will be 10 years in April since Mean Girls hit theaters. Who knew? Mark Waters, the director of the cult film, has exposed some fascinating facts about it. Here are five exciting facts that you will be shocked to learn: 1. Lindsay Lohan didn’t want to play the main character, Cady Heron. She originally wanted to play the popular pretty girl, Regina George. Waters said Lindsay Lohan wasn’t comfortable playing Cady Heron, but the director couldn’t find anyone who wanted to go against Lohan. She gave in to play the lead and said, "At least I get to have more lines." Lohan would have made a great Regina George, but the film would have not been the same. 2. Rachel McAdams auditioned for Cady Heron’s part, but Waters said she was too old to play it. McAdams was 26 years old at the time. Amy Poehler, who played her mother in the film, was only seven years older than her. Amanda Seyfried initially auditioned for Regina George, but she was fragile in a kind of scary way. We can agree that we love Amanda Seyfried's character, who predicted the weather with her breasts. 3. Amy Poehler was a huge help in the Kevin Gnapoor rap. Poehler is super charismatic and we can see it in the film. Amy actually told him how to rap and also taught him some of the moves and choreography. Waters said, "Amy is more of the rap person." What if Amy showed off her rap talent in the film? I would love to have seen that! 4. The director enjoys making movies about tough women. Waters said he finds women more interesting than men. Also, he didn’t realize how much of an impact his movie made on others. Mean Guys? That would have been interesting, to say the least. 5. Mean Girls was supposed to be rated R, according to the MPAA. Waters had to change some of the lines to be PG-13 appropriate. Waters said it was a fight to avoid the film being rated R. It is super popular among the young audience, so if it was rated R its success may not have been as great. Read more facts here!
