Mean Girls: Lindsay Lohan and Jonathan Bennett reunite via FaceTime
Bennett played the dreamy Aaron Samuels to Lohan’s Cady in the hit comedy from 2004. The two still keep in touch, as shown in a screenshot posted to Lohan’s Instagram. After all, it’s their scene about math class “flirting” that sparked the fan-made holiday: “On Oct. 3, he asked me what day it was.”
EW caught up with Bennett earlier this year to see what he had planned for Mean Girls Day. “I wear all pink and I watch Mean Girls with Lacey Chabert [who played Gretchen Wieners] and we sit there all day long and she asks me what day it is every five minutes,” he said, before admitting, “No, I pretty much just stay away from social media and keep my phone off because it blows up.”
He continued, “It’s ridiculous the amount of people and friends texting me, like a second birthday. It’s so fun, though, to watch what people come up with. Some people aren’t into it, when they’re a part of something iconic like that, and I’m like, ‘Guys, it’s a part of our history, too. Enjoy it.’ You don’t have to run away from it.”
