Amanda Seyfried can't believe it's been a decade since Mean Girls was in theaters—or that people still revere the movie. "I check my retweets sometimes. It's like getting a 'like.' I usually only get like 50-100, which is good, I guess," the actress, 28, said on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Thursday. "But when I tweeted, 'On Wednesdays, we wear pink,' I got like 18,000 retweets. How crazy is that?"

Seyfried called Tina Fey a "genius" for creating Mean Girls. "Man, this has gone into history," she said.

Jimmy Fallon noted that Seyfried's character, Karen Smith, had an unusual talent. Never one to mince her words, Seyfried beat him to the punch, saying, "She can tell the weather by feeling herself up."

Ironically, Seyfried dreamed of becoming a meteorologist as a young girl in Pennsylvania. "I didn't realize you had to be smart," she joked. "About the time Twister came out with Helen Hunt—my idol—I would dress up in these little khaki shorts and this wife beater and go outside and try to figure out what was happening in the clouds. I had this big weather binder. I was obsessed with the weather."

Wait, a weather binder?! "It's just a collection of printed out articles about weather," Seyfried explained. "Some kids do drugs. I printed out information about cumulus clouds and anvils and such."
