Amanda Seyfried about Mean Girls

Seyfried reflected in the Vanity Fair interview that initially she auditioned for the role of Regina George in the Mean Girls. She was very excited as she had flown out to Los Angeles for the audition and she met Blake Lively who was playing Karen, along with Lacey Chabert and Lindsay Lohan. The actress calls this much fulfilling and enlightening experience.

After auditioning when she was flying back home, Amanda Seyfried received a call from the casting team that they might sign her to play the role of Karen in Mean Girls. Seyfried thinks that the reason she got signed for the role of Karen was because she played that person in high school who used to stay out of drama. Therefore, it was much easier to transition as Karen at that point of time.

Amanda Seyfried said that she had lots of fun while shooting the movie as everyone was very cool and the director of Mean Girls, Mark Waters was amazing.
