    A Tweet About Emma Gerber's Hair In "Mean Girls" Went Viral After We Finally Learned The Story Behind It In 2022

    A piece of Mean Girls trivia you never knew you needed.

    Mean Girls was released almost 20 years ago.

    It came out 18 years ago, to be exact.

    And somehow, we're still learning new, random behind-the-scenes facts in 2022.

    Just a couple weeks ago, we learned that Lindsay Lohan wanted to play Regina George, but Tina Fey wouldn't allow it.

    We've learned that all the guys from Mean Girls eventually came out as gay.

    And lastly, and most importantly, we've learned that Kevin G is a total babe.

    Like, seriously.

    Follow him on Instagram immediately.

    Now we're learning another fun fact about another minor character, Emma Gerber.

    So, you know the part when Cady breaks up the crown and gives it to a bunch of random people?

    In the scene, Cady looks at Emma Gerber and says "That hairdo must have taken hours, and you look really pretty."

    So, Korey Kuhl went viral reacting to the hairdo line. "I don't believe Emma Gerber's hairdo 'must've taken hours.'"

    I guess I just don’t believe that Emma Gerber’s hairdo “must’ve taken hours”

    And then, because it's 2022, the actual actor who played Emma Gerber, Jan Caruana, gave us more info about the hairdo.

    At first it took about 25 minutes. Then I got sent to set and the director said "that doesn't look like it took hours." So I was sent back to hair and they stuck some flowers in it and I got sent back again. So in total... Maybe one hour. https://t.co/po33ynsaMo

    "So I was sent back to hair and they stuck some flowers in it and I got sent back again. So in total... Maybe one hour."

    So, there you have it. Emma Gerber's hair did not take HOURS...it only took an hour.

    Now, enjoy another picture of Kevin G. <3
