Mean Girls is one of the ultimate favourite films from the early Noughties, and inspired a generation to harbour a love of Jingle Bell Rock, to appreciate how Aaron Samuels' hair looks sexy pushed back, and to realise that 'fetch' was never going to happen. While it's been 19 years since the film was released back in 2004, we're still obsessed with the likes of Regina George, Karen Smith and Gretchen Weiners, whose father invented toaster strudel. So what has the cast been up to since the film's release? Get all the details here...
Lindsay Lohan - Cady Haron
Lindsay has had a busy career since starring in the teen drama, appearing in Herbie: Fully Loaded, Just My Luck and Bobby. She also has several publicised legal troubles over the last few years, including driving under the influence.
Lindsay, who now resides in Dubai, was one of the panellists on The Masked Singer in Australia but was unable to travel there for the follow-up season due to COVID-19. She is also a nightclub owner, and released a new single, Back to Me, in early 2020. The 37-year-old tied the knot with financier Bader Shammas in 2022, and the pair welcomed their first child together in June 2023.
Rachel McAdams - Regina George
Rachel has become a huge film star since her turn as a mean girl in the 2004 film. After all, she is flawless. She owns two Fendi purses and a silver Lexus! Since Mean Girls, Rachel has starred in everything from romances to comedy, including The Notebook, Game Night and About Time. She most recently starred in Netflix's hit musical film, Eurovision. She shares two children with her husband, screenwriter Jamie Linden.
Amanda Seyfried - Karen Smith
Amanda found huge success in dramas like Dear John and Les Miserables, but is perhaps best known for playing Sophie in the hit Mamma Mia musical films! She has most recently starred in The Art of Racing in the Rain and Netflix's Mank. She also recently became a mother for a second time back in September 2020! The actress shares two children, a boy and a girl, with her husband, Thomas Sadoski.
Lacey Chabert - Gretchen Weiners
Lacey has starred in plenty of rom-coms since the 2004 teen film, including Christian Mingle, Anything is Possible and Slightly Single in LA. She is married to her longtime boyfriend, David Nehdar, and the pair share a daughter, Julia.
Daniel Franzese - Damian Leigh
Daniel has starred in hit show Looking as well as the movie adaptation of the same name, as well as I Spit on Your Grave, Foodies and Conviction. He also guest-starred on RuPaul's Drag Race in 2020! But the big question is - did he ever get his pink shirt back?!
Lizzy Caplan - Janice Ian
Lizzy has become a huge TV and film star, and has previously starred in Masters of Sex, Das Boot and True Blood on television, as well as films including Now You See Me 2, The Disaster Artist and 127 Hours. She tied the knot with her boyfriend, English actor Tom Riley, in 2017.
