‘What it’s like to go on vacation when your husband was in Mean Girls’: Man shares hilarious reality of marrying an icon

The name Jonathan Bennett may not ring a bell at first, but we’re willing to bet that if you saw him, you’d instantly know who he was. That’s because the actor is best known for his role in 2004’s Mean Girls, in which Bennett played Aaron Samuels — the secret crush of Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) and on-again, off-again boyfriend to Regina George (Rachel McAdams).

In real life, the actor, TV host and producer only has eyes for one person: His husband and fellow actor, Jaymes Vaughan (@jaymesvaughan). But as Vaughan recently shared in a viral TikTok, that hasn’t stopped Bennett’s many admirers from swooping in whenever the two are in public.

“This is what it’s like to go on vacation when your husband was in Mean Girls,” Vaughan jokingly sings to the camera while walking in Paris.

As Vaughan enjoys his solo walk, sipping coffee while he strolls, Bennett chats with fans and takes selfies in the background.

“Everywhere you go people stop and take a pic and you’re just hanging out by yourself,” Vaughan continues. “But look how pretty it is!”

In his caption, Vaughan clarified that he “obviously” doesn’t take any of this to heart and considers his husband’s rabid fan following to be both funny and a blessing.

In the comments, many others saw the humor in it but also told Vaughan that it comes with the gig.

“well, you are married to Aaron samuels,” one person pointed out.

“what ya expect,” added another.

“you signed up for this lol,” someone else told him.

Others referred to Vaughan as “Mrs. Aaron Samuels” and reminded him he married an icon.

And then some couldn’t help but drop hilarious references to the Tina Fey comedy.

“Have you told him his hair looks better pushed back?” one person quipped.

“Oh my god, Danny Devito! I love your work!” added someone else.

But then came the question to end all questions: “do you guys do something special on October 3rd?” one person asked.

(Honestly, I think we’d all like to know the answer to that one.)
