He looks all grown up now, but eight years ago, this actor played high-school heartthrob Aaron Samuels in the super popular, overly quoted (even to this day) “Mean Girls” movie. Like his co-stars, Jonathan Bennett was quickly launched to fame, where he capitalized on his typecasting to snag all kinds of rom-com roles. Even if you haven’t seen “Mean Girls,” you might have seen him in “Awkward,” “Veronica Mars,” “The Dukes of Hazzard,” “Slightly Single in LA,” and Hallmark’s first LGBTQ holiday romance, “The Christmas House” (via IMDb).

While speaking to NBC News prior to the film’s premiere, Bennett shared why the film was important to him on a personal level: “Representation is important, but correct representation is more important, not just for viewers … but it’s also important for LGBTQ people to see themselves in media. … Being on set and experiencing this couple navigating the adoption process, … you start to feel the warmth and unconditional love of family, and it starts to inspire you to consider sharing that experience with your partner in real life, too.” If you’re ready for more heartwarming speeches from Bennett, we’re happy to tell you he’s got at least five more movies in the works, per IMDb.
