Mean Girls stars reveal their story on the film's 10th anniversary

Exactly 10 years ago on this very day, Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) was accepted into the group of The Plastics which consisted of Regina George (Rachel McAdams), Gretchen Wieners (Lacey Chabert) and Karen Smith (Amanda Seyfried). The film was released into the theaters on Apr. 30, 2004 and ever since then the Mean girls has become a cult classic and we can surely fathom its success by the fact that till this date the movie has made $121 million at the worldwide box office.

Talking to The New York Times, many stars of the movie revealed their stories including Tina Fey who was the screenwriter and also played Ms. Sharon Norbury. Remembering the script, which was mostly inspired from Rosalind Wiseman's book Queen Bees and Wannabes, Tina Fey shared her feelings and said "I revisited high school behaviors of my own—futile, poisonous, bitter behaviors that served no purpose. That thing of someone saying, 'You're really pretty,' and then, when the other person thanks them, saying, 'Oh, so you agree? You think you're pretty?' That happened in my school. That was a bear trap."

Rachel McAdams on the other hand talked a little about her character and said that “At the heart of Regina George was a really angry kid who had no boundaries or guidance.” She remembers that “Director Mark Waters] told me to listen to Courtney Love really loud, and to watch Alec Baldwin in Glengarry Glen Ross." Chabert automatically had good understanding of the vision that Fey had in mind. She says "I related to the part in the movie where girls are cutting themselves down, like, 'My hairline is weird'—stuff people would never notice on someone else. I was never the cool kid. I wore Minnie Mouse stuff. And growing up in Hollywood, I always felt under a microscope." The actress clearly felt a very strong connection to her character in the movie she further went on to say that "I think all girls that age are looking for their 'thing.' I was fairly angsty in high school. I had my hair dyed black and was into Charles Bukowski. For the movie, I wanted to wear tons of layers and dark eye makeup. I cooked my hair—literally burned it with a flatiron—to make it stick up straighter. Only now...has it recovered."

However McAdams seems to be surprised by the idea of Mean Girls being a top hit instantly after its release. "When you're making something, you kind of have no concept of it. But this was the script that made me call my manager halfway through and say, 'I will play any part in this,'" she said. "Tina hit a nerve about girl politics, but in a nonconfrontational way."
