"Being mean to people is not cool," Ariel told the mag. "And why I found it so awesome to do this shoot and play these characters is that I’m right now trying to speak out against bullying and people tearing others down, and I love that I got to play these characters and trump them in a sense."
She added: "I got to overtake them. What they do is not right — and I’m above it."
For the EPIC shoot, Ariel also ~slayed~ as Clueless’ Amber, Heathers’ Heather Chandler and The Craft’s Nancy Downs.
And here she is acting out some of the iconic mean girls' most memorable one-liners... somebody give this girl an Oscar!
