|~ Janis, talking about Regina|
Regina George is the main antagonist of Mean Girls. She was the former Queen Bee of the school and the former leader of the Plastics.
She is portrayed by Rachel McAdams.
Regina has mid back length blonde hair and wears a lot of lip gloss. She wears mini skirts with tight blouses that shows off her figure, and high heel shoes. Other times she wears jeans. At the Halloween party, she was dressed as a Play Boy Bunny. At the school Christmas talent show, she was dressed as Santa's Little Helper by wearing a knee length red dress with white featherly trims and a Santa hat. At the Prom, she wore a light pink dress with a crown of flowers around her head brace with a corsage. Regina also sets rules, in regards to how she and the rest should wear and look, for her group, the Plastics, and this includes wearing pink on Wednesdays.
Regina is what people would describe as a Queen Bee. She was raised by two very wealthy parents and a younger sister, and was spoiled since she was a child. She has a very snotty attitude and she can be quite a bully to other girls. For example, when she tells a girl "Nice skirt", she actually thinks that the said girl's skirt is hideous. Nevertheless, most girls wanted to be like her and have her good looks. She is quite popular among the male crowd. When it comes to her best friends, Gretchen and Karen, she can be really bossy with them and sometimes insult them. She is very obsessed with her weight and goes on a low carb diet. In the end, she became nicer to people and does her best to channel her anger.
PlotIn the movie, Regina plays a major role as the leader of the Plastics. When Cady Herons (Lindsay Lohan) transferred from Africa, Regina quickly allowed Cady to the group and even set up rules for her to follow and they quickly became friends.
In their first outing together, Regina invites Cady to go shopping with her, Gretchen Weiners, and Karen Smith. While they shop, Gretchen tells Regina her boyfriend Jason was going out with another girl, who was also in the mall, but she quickly came up with a plan to make her separate from him. She poses as a teacher through her cellphone, telling the girl's mom she did not pass her test, which prompts Jason to leave the girl. This makes Regina and Gretchen very happy.
She even introduced Cady the Burn Book, a journal which contains nasty insults about people, mostly girls, they come across. She later found out that Cady has a crush on her ex-boyfriend, Aaron and at the Halloween party, she kissed him in front of Cady. Cady in turn wanted to get revenge on her. Cady gave Regina a Kalteen bar which she claims will help Regina lose weight, but it really makes Regina gain weight. The Plastics turn their backs on Regina for Cady because Cady told Gretchen that Regina doesn't want to be her friend anymore. Regina found out that Cady was not being a good friend for not inviting her to the house party. Once Regina arrived and found Cady with Aaron, she stormed out while eating a Kalteen with her new boyfriend telling her what the bar really does.
Shocked, hurt, and upset, Regina decided to make Cady pay by framing Cady and the Plastics for writing down horrible things about each of the individuals and Regina even put down herself in the book so that she can make herself a victim. First, her plan was to go to the principal's office and tell him that she found the book in the girl's bathroom and she told him that Cady, Gretchen and Karen were responsible and they were sent to the office. Meanwhile, while classes were in progress, Regina made copies of the pages of the book and threw them all over the hallways and hid.
When the students came out of the classrooms, the female students picked up the pages and started to get into cat fights with each other as Regina stood among the fights, satisfied. Later, the principal and Ms. Norbury had a meeting with all the junior girls at the gym. During the session Ms. Norbury had each of the girls to come up and tell their friends their secrets and apologize. When Janis, Cady's former friend came up, she revealed to Regina that Cady actually did help her sabotage Regina with the foot cream and the bar, and that she did it because she may had a lesbian crush on her.
Furious, Regina walked out of the school to her mom's car with Cady trying to apologize but Regina keeps refusing to Listen to her. Instead, Regina just briskly and slowly walked back to Cady and told her that she can keep her apology, and until she was finishing her sentence, she was hit by a school bus, but she survived. During her recovery, most people and Cady came by to send her flowers and get well gifts.
A few weeks later, she went to the Prom and was suprised that Cady actually received the title. However, Cady wanted to apologized to everyone and Regina for what she did and Cady broke her crown in parts and gave each of them to a special girl that deserves it and Regina was included and she was grateful. In the end, Regina and Cady made up and became friends again, and the Plastics disbanded with a start of a brand new and peaceful year. Regina even joined the Lacrosse team to help channel her stress.
