  • Lizzy was Janice Ian in the movie Mean Girls (2004) starring alongside Lindsay Lohan.

  • Although she had fun making Mean Girls, she made the conscious effort to keep switiching-up her roles she played afterwards. In a 2005 interview, "I loved my part in Mean Girls but I figured I had to change it up completely or I’d get typecast.” In a 2007 interview, “I like to change my appearance for every role because it’s helpful for the character—but also, the idea of being easily recognizable on the street leaves such a horrible taste in my mouth that I like to do anything I can to stay anonymous for a while.” 
Lizzy Caplan scored a spread in GQ magazine - October 2013 

  • One of Lizzy’s favorite TV shows is Saved by the Bell — she’s even got a cat named Lisa Turtle, after Lark Voorhies’ character on the show.
  • Although Lizzy was raised in a Reformed Jewish family, she’s not — as she puts it, a “Super Jew...I’m more about the traditional aspects of it rather than the religious at this point, but I plan on raising my kids Jewish.”
  • Like so many actors, Lizzy did her time in the restaurant business. She bussed tables at two different restaurants. She never moved up to waitress, which she calls “the biggest embarrassment of my whole life,” but she loved the atmosphere all the same.
  • Nude scenes don’t phase her. She finds the whole thing—including that the first results when you Google her name are her True Blood nude scenes—pretty hilarious.
  • Lizzy has been in a relationship with Matthew Perry since 2006.

They started a conversation that ignited a revolution.
