"Does Regina George haunt me every day? She does have that quality," she said, according to Teen Vogue. "I have to thank Regina George for giving me some longevity. I’m forever grateful to Tina Fey and Mark Waters. I remember when I read [the script for Mean Girls], I called my agent right away and said, 'I will play any part in this, please, please, please.' I was at the beginning of my career, and it was a lofty thing out there, that I really, really, really wanted to do. I’m always looking for larger-than-life characters, which is probably why I like playing villains. They get away with so much."
McAdams was the mean girl from everyone's high school. She wholly owned the part and is a big reason for the film's lasting impact and success. Raise your hand if you've ever been personally victimized by Regina George.
