1. Mira Sorvino as Romy White
Fun fact: Sorvino was dating Quentin Tarantino while filming Romy and Michele, which might explain the appearance of several fictional products — a Big Kahuna bag and Red Apple cigarettes — from Tarantino’s other movies.
2. Lisa Kudrow as Michele Weinberger
Fun fact: Before playing Michele on screen, Kudrow played the role on stage in Ladies' Room, the Robin Schiff play on which the movie is based.

Fun fact: Garofalo and Kudrow nearly starred in Friends together, but Garofalo ended up turning down the part of Monica Geller.

6. Julia Campbell as Christie Masters
Interesting fact: Campbell told InStyle that after receiving the offer to play Christie, "it got pulled because somebody at Disney...said that I wasn’t pretty enough." Director David Mirkin then invited her back to the cast read-through.
7. Kristin Bauer van Straten as Kelly
Fun fact: Around a decade after playing Kelly in Romy and Michele, Bauer gained much attention for her role as Pamela Swynford de Beaufort on True Blood.
8. Elaine Hendrix as Lisa Luder

9. Vincent Ventresca as Billy Christensen
