The lovely moment when Aaron (Jonathan Bennett) asked Cady (Lindsay Lohan) what day it was during class is celebrated every year by Mean Girls fans.
He asked me what day it was on October 3rd," recounts Cady with delight. She tells the hottie, whom she is pursuing, "It's October 3rd." Based on that famous sequence, the 2004 movie is a cult hit and has even inspired a national holiday.
The 2002 self-help book Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends, and the New Realities of Girl World by Rosalind Wiseman served as a loose inspiration for the film. It was immediately successful when Tina Fey adapted it for the big screen, and fans are still admiring it almost 20 years later.
In the high school drama about social hierarchies and their frequently negative effects, Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Lacey Chabert, and Amanda Seyfried played the roles of Cady Heron, Regina George, Gretchen Wieners, and Karen Smith, respectively.
The stars of the film went on in their careers, to varying success, in the 18 years after Mean Girls came out, including Emmy wins and even Academy Award nominations. Here is a look at some of what the cast has been up to since 2004.
