  • A Walmart Black Friday ad featured a Mean Girls reunion without Rachel McAdams this year – and now we know why.

  • McAdams told Variety that she passed up because she “wasn't that excited about doing a commercial.”

  • When she decided to decline the offer, she didn't know that her co-stars had already agreed to it, she added.

Rachel McAdams has finally explained why Regina George wasn't featured in Walmart's “Mean Girls” reunion ad for Black Friday this year.

In an interview with Variety, the 45-year-old actress revealed that she turned down the opportunity because she wasn't interested in starring in a commercial.

“I don't know it. If I'm being completely honest, I guess I wasn't that excited about doing a commercial,” McAdams told Variety. “A movie sounded great, but I've never done commercials before and it just didn't feel like my style.”

When she declined the offer, she also wasn't aware that some of her co-stars had already agreed, she added.

“Besides… I didn’t know everyone did that. “I would obviously always love to be part of a 'Mean Girls' reunion and hang out with my plastics, but yeah, I found that out later,” she continued.

Walmart's “Mean Girls” commercial was released in November and featured Lindsay Lohan, Lacey Chabert and Amanda Seyfried playing adult versions of their original characters.

A “Mean Girls” musical adaptation written by Tina Fey is scheduled to hit theaters on January 12, 2024.

Fey and Tim Meadows will reprise their roles as Miss Norbury and Principal Duval, respectively, in the new film, Fey announced on an episode of “Late Night with Seth Meyers” in February.

However, Lohan, Chabert, Seyfried and McAdams will not portray their characters in the remake, Entertainment Weekly reported.
