The 36-year-old said, "I could barely remember the dance when we had to film it! I was definitely the weakest link on the team. I have a genuine phobia of dancing in public—even a choreographed dance—so that was definitely a challenge for me."

"But I love that song, it’s always on my Christmas rotation of music, and every time it comes on, it makes me think of that moment and how much fun we had filming that," she explained.

The Party of Five star also confessed if she would be down to do a Mean Girls sequel. "I don’t know! I wish I could tell you I did. I know I would love to be a part of it if they ever decided to revisit the characters, and I think it would be so much fun, but no I don’t know! Mean Girls was a blast to film. I turned 21 when we were filming, and I will never forget that."
