‘She’s All That’ mean girl reflects on the movie 20 years later

Even though it’s been 20 years since the release of “She’s All That,” Jodi Lyn O’Keefe, who played resident mean girl Taylor Vaughan, still remembers every detail of filming one of the movie’s most iconic scenes.

“[The prom scene] felt like ‘Groundhog Day,’ like we never actually left a prom because we were there for so many days in a row,” O’Keefe told Page Six in a recent interview. “I think by the time we were all done with that scene if we never heard ‘Funk Soul Brother’ again, we’d be OK. By the end of it, not one of us could stand hearing that song anymore because we just heard it over and over and over and over again for the longest time.”

O’Keefe, 40, says listening to the Fatboy Slim song now brings her right back to that moment 20 years ago, adding she thinks she could still do the choreographed dance that goes along with it.

O’Keefe, who was 20 years old at the time, remembers little from her audition for the film, only the feeling of “pure terror.” Even though she’d been on “Nash Bridges” for a couple years, “She’s All That” was only her second movie.

But the minute she got into the room with director Robert Iscove, the fear melted away. “I remember he was so lovely to me and I thought if only every audition could be like this for the rest of my life that would be great,” she said.

After she was cast, O’Keefe, who was new to Los Angeles at the time, vividly remembers getting lost on her first day on set.
