15 Secrets About Mean Girls That Are Totally Grool


LiLo Didn't Want to Be Cady...  When Mark Waters who'd directed Lindsay Lohan in Freaky Friday visited the actress in Toronto while she was filming Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, he asked her if she wanted to be in his movie. 


And she had one role on her mind.  "I wanted to play Regina. I had just played in Confessions and Freaky not the cool girl in school," she recalled to Entertainment Weekly in 2014. "I was still 17 years old and I wanted to be the cool girl on set." 


But between the trouble finding a Cady strong enough to go up against her Regina and the huge success of Freaky Friday, it became clear to the powers-that-be that a change was necessary.  "Sherry Lansing, who was heading Paramount at the time, told us, 'We have to have Lindsay play the lead in Mean Girls. 


It's just not going to work having her play the villain, because she now has an audience that won't accept that,'" Waters told Vulture in 2014, revealing it was up to him to break the bad news to the actress. "Lindsay kind of begrudgingly said, 'Okay, I guess I'll play the lead. At least I get to have more lines.'"
