Lizzy Caplan agrees that, yes, Janis Ian was one of the biggest Mean Girls

Lizzy Caplan agrees that, yes, Janis Ian was one of the biggest Mean Girls Cult-classic Mean Girls is one of those films where the good-guys-vs-bad-guys plot is incredibly obvious. However, in 2017, one Twitter user theorized that Janis Ian, played by Lizzy Caplan, was actually the main villain in Mean Girls. And Caplan thinks this theory holds some weight. "She’s layered," Caplan said when informed about the theory on Buzzfeed News’ AM to DM, before confirming that, "yeah, of course," Janis was a mean girl. However, Caplan noted, "She was a bit craftier than the other mean girls. She was like a mean girl with spy plans...with purpose." For those who missed this thread back when it blew up in 2017, @dontforgetjames surmised that Janis wasn’t any better than the Plastics. Perhaps the film was meant to show that *every* person in high school has the potential to be a mean girl, no matter their social status.
