The illustrious Rachel McAdams almost played teen drama queen, Lindsay Lohan’s role in Mean Girls. The only thing which prevented the director from casting McAdams as Cady was her slightly elderly status.
Rachel McAdams almost played Lohan’s Role in Mean Girls
Mark Waters, the director of the acclaimed movieMean Girls, confessed that originally RachelMcAdams was to play the role of Cady. It was only at the last moment that a sexy and smart Lindsay Lohan entered and got the role instead. Rachel was too old for the role so it went to Lohan.
Meanwhile, Rachel went on to play Regina. Tina Fey’s novel, Mean Girls was fit into the mold of a film in 2004. It was a teen comedy par excellence. Tina Fey herself made a cameo appearance in the movie. In a way Lohan and McAdams exchanged roles with each other.
In the beginning, when Lindsay Lohan was to play Regina’s character, she gushed and oozed enthusiastically about her lucky chance. But later on she reluctantly agreed to play second fiddle. Lohan wasn’t too happy about the change in plans. She was also not on the best of terms with the more mature McAdams.
Often when McAdams sat close by in icy silence, Lohan felt uncomfortable and shy. Since the ultimate decision was up to the director, the swap was made. Both actresses, one new on the scene and the other a veteran, were not at home in each other’s company. This may after all be a case of real life copying reel life.
