During a recent interview on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, Evan revealed she turned down a role for the movie, but didn't specify which character it was for.

But it's not like she wasn't interested in joining the cast. Evan already signed on to do a similar project about high school.


“The only reason is because I was already supposed to do a film called Pretty Persuasion that was set in a high school, that was Heathers-esque, and it was very similar.”


...I quickly came to the conclusion that Evan would've made a PERFECT Regina George. Let's be clear though: that's no shade to Rachel McAdams, because she played the role flawlessly.

But before you accuse me of Mean Girls blasphemy, hear me out. Let's run through the check list, shall we?

1. Evan has range. Do you remember how believable she was in Thirteen?! She went from shy bookworm to telling her mom she wasn't wearing a bra or panties in 2.5 seconds. She had parents everywhere SHOOK!
