He is best known for his role in the 2004 teen comedy “Mean Girls.”In a December 2022 interview with Salon, Bennett said, “I owe my entire life, my entire career, to the film. “Everything about who I am today I owe to Tina Fey, Lorne Michaels and Lindsay Lohan.”
Although he’s been in many movies and television shows with catchy theme songs and unforgettable lines, there’s something about “Mean Girls” that he will never get away from.
“It’s not a regular movie. It’s part of people’s lives,” he said. “They speak it, they talk it, and they have parties for it. They dress up like it for Halloween. The lines in ‘Mean Girls’ are in people’s everyday vocabulary now.”
