LOS ANGELES, May 30 (UPI) -- Amanda Seyfried revealed her favorite line from one of her earliest roles, that of one of the so-called plastics in Mean Girls.

Seyfried played ditzy Karen Smith in the Tina Fey-written comedy from 2004.

She told Digital Spy her favorite line in the movie — which is ripe with lots of good zingers — showcased her character's bimbo tendencies.

"If you're from Africa, why are you white?" the character asks new girl Cady Heron, played by Lindsay Lohan.

"God she's so dumb," Seyfried said of her character. "So blissfully ignorant. It's so fun to play that."
