‘Mean Girls’ Star Jonathan Bennett Teases Possible Reunion + Shares Mind-Blowing On-Set Confession
With everyone from Lindsay Lohan to Amanda Seyfriend hyping up the idea of a 10-year ‘Mean Girls’ reunion, Jonathan Bennett (aka hottie Aaron Samuels) also teased the idea at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards last night, April 13.
“I think it’s great,” he revealed to OK! magazine. “I don’t know if they’re going to do another movie or not but I think something’s happening.”
Oooh, that’s a hint we can run with!
While on the topic of reminiscing about the movie, Bennett also opened up about his favorite memory from his time filming the cult clique classic:
“Just getting to work with Tina (Fey) and Amy (Poehler) and that whole group—it was such an all-star group of people,” he gushed. “I think my favorite memory of the movie is that this was this little gem that happened before all of these people were these people. We were just kids shooting a movie that we thought would be good. That’s all we did.”
Of course, since the movie wrapped 10 years ago, Lohan’s celebrity blew up while her personal life floundered (though she seems to be on the right track, thanks to Oprah); Rachel McAdams and Amanda Seyfried have become bona fide movie stars, and Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have gone from ‘SNL’ to creating and starring in their own sitcoms to successfully hosting the ‘Golden Globes’ — twice.
But Bennett still wasn’t done on dishing out some good ‘Mean Girls’ gossip — and even a shocking confession.
“The math tutor scene, Lindsay and I we both were not in that scene actually,” he revealed. “Because of scheduling Lindsay and I were never actually at the desks when we meet each other. It’s stand-ins.”
Whaaaat. Mind. Blown.
