The fan favorite movie “Mean Girls” is celebrating it’s 10 year anniversary today. The movie was released in theaters exactly 10 years ago on April 30, 2004 in the US. The movie turned into a phenomena and pop-culture favorite. We updated our (new) gallery with lots of “Mean Girls” images to celebrate the anniversary and we have more goodies coming up later on so stay tuned. The New York Times published an article on the anniversary this past weekend and it also features a few new quotes of Rachel. The article is added in our press archive and some excerpts can be found below.
On Regina George: “At the heart of Regina George was a really angry kid who had no boundaries or guidance. Mark told me to listen to Courtney Love really loud, and to watch Alec Baldwin in “Glengarry Glen Ross.”
On the success: “[The success] was surprising to me because 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.” Tina hit a nerve about girl politics, but in a nonconfrontational way.”
On a recent fan encounter: “I recently stayed at a bed-and-breakfast in Europe, and the owner’s young granddaughter asked me to write down a few lines from the movie at breakfast. I was like a deer in headlights. I couldn’t remember any. And she proceeded to give me 12 direct quotes.”
There have been rumors about a possible cast reunion panel earlier this year, but so far nothing has been confirmed. New Beverly Cinema is hosting an anniversary screening today and tomorrow. Director Mark Waters, casting director Marci Liroff, composer Rolfe Kent, and cinematographer Daryn Okada are expected to attend tomorrow’s screening.
