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
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.

Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 3, entitled Sisterhood Everlasting, is in the works! The announcement of a third film comes six years after the sequel.

Alloy Entertainment, which developed the first two, announced the film based on Ann Brashares's fifth and final Sisterhood book, Sisterhood Everlasting.

Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

Starring the fab four of Blake Lively, Alexis Bledel, America Ferrera, and Amber Tamblyn, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants arrived in theaters in 2005.

The film was a hit among audiences and performed well at the box office. The four stars teamed up again for 2008's The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2.

The successful sequel was based not on one of the novels specifically, but as a combination of Brashares' second, third, and fourth books in the series:

Former child star Mara Wilson quit acting more than a decade ago, but with the announcement of a Mrs. Doubtfire sequel, the now 26-year-old writer felt the need to clarify that she will not be reprising her role as Natalie Hillard.

"For the record, no, I do not have anything to do with the Mrs. Doubtfire sequel, nor will I," Wilson tweeted today as the forthcoming film became a trending topic. 

It stands to reason that the press-shy Wilson would want to preemptively deflect any questions from journalists or fans. What makes less sense, however, is Wilson's follow-up tweet, which trashed the notion of sequels, and by extension, Mrs. Doubtfire 2:

"Sequels generally suck unless they were planned as part of a trilogy or series. I think Doubtfire ended where it needed to."

Magic Mike XXL, the Magic Mike sequel we've all been waiting for, is coming on July 3, 2015. Talk about your Independence Day fireworks!

The last we saw from movie co-writer Channing Tatum, he was calling himself "fappy" (fat and happy) on Ellen and gushing about his wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, and their baby girl. 

Looks like he'll be hitting the weight room again to beef up for Magic Mike XXL​. In no time at all, he'll look like this again.

Channing Tatum Naked
Channing Tatum got nearly naked for this GQ Magazine spread. He has experience being nearly naked since he was once a stripper.

Dystopian fiction ruled the night as The Hunger Games: Catching Fire took the top prize at Sunday's 2014 MTV Movie Awards, to no one's surprise.

The blockbuster film picked up the golden popcorn-shaped statuette for the evening's biggest award, Movie of the Year. Its lead actors also prevailed.

Conan and Catching Fire

Jennifer Lawrence won Best Female Performance as Katniss Everdeen and Josh Hutcherson was voted best male performer for his role as Peeta Mellark.

Zany categories were in abundance, such as best fight, best villain and best shirtless performance ... which winner Zac Efron properly accepted shirtless.

Plenty of additional prizes were handed during the Conan O'Brien-hosted show, which was just as notable for the summer movie teasers that aired.
