Mean Girls Cast: Where Are They Now?

With today being the tenth anniversary for the release of the high school cult classic Mean Girls, we thought it would be a good time to check in on what the cast of the iconic film is up to a decade later.

Lindsay Lohan has been all over the tabloids in the 10 years since she starred in Mean Girls. While she remains in the news, her career has been in the gutter.

While all the principal cast members are still working actors with varying degrees of success, boy did they choose some different paths with regard to their lives and careers!

Obviously Lindsay Lohan remains a tabloid mainstay ten years later with new reports of bad behavior seemingly surfacing every day. (Today's nugget: Lindsay is banging a married man!)

Conversely, Amanda Seyfried has avoided Hollywood excess and carved out a successful career for herself, at one point even stealing a part that was planned for Lindsay in the film Lovelace.

Amanda is dating actor Justin Long these days and she's earned a reputation as a reliable actress and down-to-earth star.

Tina Fey, of course, went on to create the long-running NBC sitcom 30 Rock.

Tina remains a pop cultural force to be reckoned with and cites the lasting impact of Mean Girls (which she wrote as well as co-starred in) as one of her proudest career accomplishments.

And with good reason. The film remains a beloved fan favorite not only for it's endlessly quotable script ("If you're from Africa, then why are you white?"), but also for the way it broke ground culturally.

Mean Girls is one of the first films targeted at teens to feature an openly gay character who's ridiculed only by the cruelest and most ignorant of his classmates.

That character - Damien - was "too gay to function" back in '04, but the actor who portrayed him, Daniel Franzese came out as gay just last week.

In a way, Franzese's coming out is a testament to how far we've come as a society in the ten years since the Plastics reigned over North Shore High.

Check out the gallery above to find out how the stars themselves have changed in that time. We promise it's the best reading since the Burn Book.

Halfway point between Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus, there was Lindsay Lohan. She ruled pop culture between 2003 and 2006. Hilary Duff and Amanda Bynes was also the top teenage idols during that time. Of course they were NOT at the same age group as Britney Spears nor Miley Cyrus, they were born roughly halfway between those two tramps. But Lindsay Lohan was so cute and innocent back then, not covering much of her freckles. So sad that she got out of control after turning 18.
