Ten years ago we met the Cady Heron, Janis Ian, Damien, The “Plastics” and the other various students of Northshore High, when the hit movie “Mean Girls” hit theaters. When a 16 year old teenager moves from South Africa to Illinois, she is in for huge culture shock. Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) goes from a quiet new student to becoming a member of the “Plastics”.
Mean Girls is based on the New York Times Best Selling book “Queen Bees & Wannabes” by Rosalind Wiseman. After reading the book, SNL star Tina Fey decided to adapt the book into a film and BOOM the idea of Mean Girls was born.
Today celebrated ten years since the film had been released and stars of the film took to social media to reflect on the movie that became such a cultural phenomenon. Lindsay Lohan (Cady) took to twitter saying “As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a mean girl….Xo L.” She added “Flashback to 2004 #Cady”
Last month Tina Fey who played the notable role of Ms. Sharon Norbury reminisced about the film while sitting down with the New York Times recently saying…
“I revisited high school behaviors of my own—futile, poisonous, bitter behaviors that served no purpose,” Fey said of the script, inspired by Rosalind Wiseman‘s book Queen Bees and Wannabes. “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.”
Fey also gave an update on Mean Girls the Musical saying that it’s still in the “Early development stage” she went on to say “We’ve been enjoying trying to write,” the former 30 Rock star explained. “I wish so badly we could have had it done in some form for the 10th anniversary, but hopefully before the 15th.”
Mean Girls which premiered in 2004 has grossed over $121 million dollars at the box-office and has become one of the most quotable movies of all time.
…That’s So Fetch!
