The story goes that Lindsay Lohan initially auditioned for and was offered the role of Regina George, but she turned it down because she felt playing a “mean girl” in a movie called Mean Girls would harm her reputation—even though only a few years later, she went on to ruin it just fine herself. The role instead went to Rachel McAdams, and Lohan took on the lead role as “nice girl” Cady. Life doesn’t always imitate art!
