A recent TikTok shared by user sakuraxea stated that Rachel McAdams wore a wig during her role as Regina George in Mean Girls because she didn't want to bleach her hair...

Anyway, it wasn't the ~fun fact~ that caught people's attention: It was the fact that tens of thousands of people did not know Rachel McAdams played Regina George.

"I was today years old when I found out Regina George is Rachel Mcadams"

I guess a lot of people never put it together that she's the same person who starred in The Notebook.

"I always thought regina and the actress from the notebook were different"

Which, fair, because they are VERY different roles — and both films came out in 2004. (But she still looks the same, IMO.)

Nevertheless, people who saw both films assumed it was a different actress in each role.

And Rachel in The Notebook:

And while we are on the topic of realizing which films Rachel was in nearly two decades ago, did you know she was also in The Hot Chick?

"She's also in The Hot Chick."

The movie came out in 2002 and also starred Rob Schneider.

Anyway, people are just feeling totally and completely shocked learning all these '00s-era Rachel McAdams films.
