Rachel McAdams’ Honest Reason for Skipping Mean Girls Reunion Commercial



Rachel McAdams recently opened up about why she opted out of the Black Friday Walmart commercial featuring her Mean Girls co-stars Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Seyfried, and Lacey Chabert. In an interview with Variety, McAdams candidly shared that she wasn’t enthusiastic about doing a commercial, stating, “I’ve never done commercials, and it just didn’t feel like my bag.” However, she expressed that she would love to be part of a movie reunion, emphasizing that the idea of reuniting with the Mean Girls crew for a film would be “awesome.”

Interestingly, McAdams was unaware that her fellow Mean Girls cast members would be participating in the commercial, and learning about it later could have influenced her decision. She stated, “I would, of course, always love to be part of a β€˜Mean Girls’ reunion and hang with my plastics, but yeah, I found that out later.” Despite her absence, the original cast members enjoyed their time together, discussing motherhood.

As for the latest updates on the Mean Girls cast, Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Seyfried, and Lacey Chabert have embraced new roles as parents. While Lohan welcomed her first child in July, Seyfried and Chabert are parents to a daughter and a daughter and a son, respectively. McAdams, also a mother of two, shares her family with longtime partner Jamie Linden.

Although McAdams didn’t participate in the Mean Girls commercial, she was nearly part of the upcoming Mean Girls musical film scheduled for release in January 2024. McAdams and Tina Fey explored various ideas, but the logistics proved challenging. Despite not being involved, McAdams expressed excitement about the film’s direction and looks forward to seeing the final result.
