Rachel McAdams who was unknown at the time, played Regina George, the teen leader of the popular group, The Plastics, and the social ruler of the school.
Amanda Seyfried, made her feature film debut in “Mean Girls.” She has since gone on to become one of Hollywood’s hottest stars, starring in movies such as Dear John, Mamma Mia!, and Les Miserables.
