Laura, I don't hate you 'cause you're fat. You're fat because I hate you.

Jessica Lopez is a minor character in Mean Girls. She is portrayed by Olympia Lukis.

Jessica Lopez is a student at North Shore High School. She was one of the Desperate Wannabes until the break-up of The Plastics, and later became a part of the Actual Human Beings clique.

The reason why she's in a wheelchair hasn't been revealed. She appears to be a good friend of the 'Shortest Girl', as they are almost always seen together.

Jessica doesn't play a major part in the movie's plot. She makes her first appearance in the cafeteria next to her best friend, Shortest Girl, where the two stated that Regina once met John Stamos on the plane, and he told her that she's pretty.

Just a few minutes later, she is once again seen sitting in the cafeteria, alongside other members of the Desperate Wannabes clique, while Janis Ian was giving Cady Heron a tour around school.

Later into the movie, Jessica got into a fight with the 'Shortest Girl' over the pages in Burn Book, but soon-after they are seen together once again, so they presumably recovered their friendship.
