Tina Fey and Lindsay Lohan reunited at the 'Mean Girls' premiere.

"It's stood the test of time," Lohan, who starred as Cady Heron in the 2004 movie, said of the infamous story. "I feel really grateful. I mean, it's not very often that you have all these movies that do that."

The former child star also noted how the film broke boundaries when it came to the world being more aware of the effects of bullying. "Mean Girls really opened the doors for a lot of things going on in schools. I think it's also a really fun movie, so it's really a blessing," she explained.

"Sometimes I would run things by the kids," the funny lady said. "Like casting, or you know, like [asking], 'Should the burn book stay a book, or should it be a private Instagram account?' And they're like, 'No, it's a book, it's a book.'"

Despite how beloved the original version is by the world, Fey has faith the public will latch onto the revamped musical edition as well. "I feel like if you are a fan of the original movie you will really feel great nostalgia," she noted. "You'll still feel nice and cozy in this new movie, but you'll get some fun surprises, some new jokes, some new teachers, some amazing songs."
