Can you believe Mean Girls is 10-years-old already?!
Since it's basically the eve of it's epic anniversary this month, cast members from the flick are spilling new deets about the 40 days of filming they all endured in Canada…
And an added bonus: Jonathan Bennett & Rajiv Surendra might've just revealed where Lindsay Lohan's erratic on-set behavior began!
When asked about his first day of shooting, Jonathan aka Aaron Samuels explained during the geometry classroom scene (you know which one we mean!), LiLo wasn't even in attendance—so he had to give bedroom eyes to a rando stand-in:
"The first time I worked with Lindsay was day one of filming. It was the [first] math scene and she had gotten pink eye and wasn’t able to come to set, so I shot my coverage of that with her stand-in."
Weird, but okay, a valid excuse we guess… BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!
Lindz also missed Rajiv's first day of filming, causing him to totally freak with nerves:
"The very, very, very first scene that was ever shot for the movie was the scene where I walk up to Lindsay and give her my card. Lindsay wasn’t feeling well that day and because they were covering me, they allowed her not to show up on set. So, the very first scene of the movie was me speaking to her and she wasn’t there. That was really, really hard because I think everybody was working out their kinks. Everybody was green."
We'd usually say this was fine, especially because it was only the guy's coverage days…
But it was their first movie, both were super nervous, AND she's a veteran who should have set a stellar example!
Not sure if this actually caused any on-set conflicts, but we know they've all kissed and made up since then—or so we think!
