Evan Rachel Wood Has a Good Reason Why She Turned Down ‘Mean Girls’

It turns out that Evan Rachel Wood might be starring in “Mean Girls“, if only she didn’t turn it down. The “Westworld” actress recently dropped by “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon“, revealing that she turned down an opportunity to star in the 2004 movie, though she wanted to work with the movie’s writer Tina Fey.

Jimmy Fallon said that he heard a rumor saying that the actress rejected a role in the comedy. However, it turned out the Evan did not actually reject the opportunity out of nothing. She explained that she had signed a contract to play in another film before she was asked to play in Tina’s movie.

She said, “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 very ‘Heathers‘-esque, and it was very similar [to ‘Mean Girls’]. And I was already kind of doing that. So I was like, ‘I can’t.’ ”

“Mean Girls” centered on Cady Heron, a home-schooled girl who lives in Africa. After she was admitted to a high school in the United States, she decided to fit in. She hung out with popular kids in high school, “The Plastics”. Then, Cady’s classmate Janis used Cady to take revenge on the group’s queen bee. Then, she did so many bad things and she was sorry. After admitting her wrong doings, she returned to her old self and everything was back to normal.

The 30-year-old actress then continued that she actually wanted to work with Tina, saying, “Tina, if you’re here, I’m so sorry we got off on the wrong foot.” She added, “As long as the next movie you’re doing is not about a robot uprising, I will happily do it.” By “robot,” she referred to her “Westworld” character named Dolores Abernathy, who is an android robot.

Evan later talked about her character’s future in season 2 of “Westworld”. She said, “She’s quite awake this season. She’s no longer under anyone’s control. So, she’s redefining herself. And she is pissed. To say the least.”

Season 2 of “Westworld” will premiere on April 22 on HBO.
