The stellar cast of Mean Girls reunite for a special edition of Entertainment Weekly

STOP WHAT YOU'RE DOING: The 'Mean Girls' reunion has happened...

Entertainment Weekly

'It's not going to happen' may have been a hit quote from, let's face it, everybody's favourite film Mean Girls but it was also the very thoughts that plagued our minds over a reunion.

We, for one, never thought we'd see the day when Regina, Gretchen, Karen, Cady and Mrs Norburry would set aside their differences, break down those plastic-walls and come together once more...

However, we're pleased to say that we were wrong. Gloriously wrong. 

It was back in April that the film that defined our very lives had its 10th Anniversary (if that doesn't make you feel old, nothing will!) but it's only now that someone has done the right thing and brought the movie's dream-team back together. And we've all got US mag Entertainment Weekly to thank. 

As part of the publication's reuniting iconic casts special, it cleverly decided to include Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, Tina Fey and Lacey Chabert in its line up and made all of our dreams come true at once.

The spread, which sees the now infamous cast don glittering party dresses and super-high heels, just goes to show how far the girls have come from the film that sky-rocketed them to fame back in 2004. 

The Mean Girls love doesn't end there; the cast also dished some of their high-lights during filming in an accompanying exclusive interview and reading it has made our Thursday 100% better. Speaking of their time on-set, the girls were happy to dish exactly what it was like, what they would have done differently and where they think their characters would be now. Oh my days... 

Li-Lo was first to reveal that she would have preferred a scene to go another way: 'I had been online trying to get pink Uggs because I had a pink pleated skirt in the scene where I fall into the garbage can. I was like, "I need pink Uggs!" I mean, I was rhinestoning my phone at the time with Swarovski crystals. [Laughs] So it was somewhat Method.' 

We mean, what girl didn't want pink Uggs back in the day?!

Comedienne Tina Fey also shared some of the tension that was going on behind the scenes in Lindsay's private life. And by private life, we are obviously talking about THAT messy Aaron Carter situ. She said: 'I remember 17-year-old Lindsay was on a mission to find pink Uggs. That was, like, what she was working on. And there was one day where she tried to explain to Amy [Poehler, who played Regina's mum in the flick] and me her beef with Hilary Duff, but we couldn't crack it. But we were pretending we could follow it.' 

The gorgeous Rachel McAdams weighed into the conversation one of the most hilarious parts of the filming process which involved her on-screen 'cool mom', Amy Poehler. 'They, like, pinned a piece of a cocktail wiener into her bra. I thought this dog was going to tear her apart. It was very effective. She was such a pro through it. She's trying to do her lines and being so professional, and this dog is chomping on her fake boob. I'll never forget that.'

Amanda Seyfried, a fresh-faced and new to the industry teen revealed just how she managed to cope with all the pressure; and it was all down to her BFF in the movie: 'I had just graduated high school! It was terrifying. I don't know what I would have done without Lacey Chabert. She was my angel. She took me in, and we'd hang out in her trailer and listen to Dido.' We LOVE this. 

And just where would the girls be now? Well, the actress' have their own theories... 

Rachel on Regina: 'She is a Real Housewife. She'd have too much time on her hands, for sure. She's probably found all her other Regina's.'

Lacey on Gretchen: 'Gretchen is probably running the Toaster Strudel empire. She is probably married and has, like, seven babies right now. She and Jason worked it out. She has very big curly hair.'

Amanda on Karen: 'Karen would manage or own a store that sells really cool dog attire, like Swarovski dog collars and Halloween costumes for animals. She's probably really focused.'

Lindsay on Cady: 'Cady's with Oprah in Africa working at children's schools with a family, teaching girls to be nice to each other.'

That was MEGA. Is anyone else suddenly craving cheese-fries?
