Regina George is the antagonist from a little popular film called "Mean Girls"; so by the movie's title and her role in it, you know she is a force to be reckoned with, right? RIGHT!
Regina George is the ultimate manipulator—tearing down others' self-esteem; pitting her "friends" against each other; backstabbing anyone who's a threat. Sounds like the quintessential mean girl. She brings out her ultimate mean-girl antics when a fellow Plastic (who ranks underneath her) falls for her ex-boyfriend. Here's some of her best movie moments.
Oh please! Kathryn Merteuil makes Regina look like a girl scout. Although a teenager, she isn't simply a manipulative high school mean girl. She's seductive, sadistic and like the movie's title suggests—she has cruel intentions. She bets her step-brother (whom she shares sexual tension with) to seduce their prep school headmaster's virginal daughter for the fun of it. She likes sadistic games, and sadistic games she plays! Here's one of evilest movie moments.
Buzzfeed has created many listicles about the evil brilliance of Regina George. Heck, they believe we all have a little bit of a Regina in us. Rachel McAdams definitely made the role relatable to almost everyone's high school experiences—making Regina the ultimate mean girl. We've all been obsessed with her since 2004.
Regina might be the cinema's ultimate traditional high school mean girl. But Bustle put together a list as to why Kathryn was the BEST villainess of the entire '90s. Heck, she might one of the cinema's greatest villains ever! Sarah Michelle Gellar created so many memorable moments playing Kathryn in this film, and every single one of them made you want to root for this sophisticated, confident femme fatale.
