Mira Sorvino Apologizes to Inventor of Post-its 18 Years After Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion Role: Watch!

Cue Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time”! Mira Sorvino is finally apologizing to the inventor of Post-its, Art Fry. That’s because 18 years ago her Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion character, Romy, lied about creating the sticky pads to impress peers at her 10-year high school reunion.

Sorvino, 48, met Fry for the first time via Skype during an interview with HuffPost Live on Wednesday, Sept. 30. “Oh my goodness! Hi, Art! Sorry for stealing your thunder!” the actress said.

“Okay, Art, sorry I stole your idea, okay?” she added in her famous Romy voice. “Alright.”

Sorvino starred in the fan favorite flick opposite Lisa Kudrow, who played Michele. The movie also featured Alan Cumming, Janeane Garofalo, Julia Campbell, Elaine Hendrix, and Vincent Ventresca. (Plus, remember Justin Theroux as the hot cowboy!?)

“That was probably the most fun I ever had on a set. That was so much fun. We were cracking each other up and trying hard not to laugh between scenes because [our characters] were such object idiots but then there was a lot of love between us,” Sorvino said Wednesday. “We were so self-assured that we were so smart but we were so dumb.”

Turns out, Sorvino’s time on set was even better than her own high school experience. “I was a nerd in high school. That’s why I did this movie. I was such a geek. They called me ‘Mira Queera’ and the only boys that liked me were the Dungeons and Dragons guys,” the Falling Skies star explained. “People wrote mean things on my locker or on my books. Teachers liked me but I had like two or three best friends and the mean girls hated me for some reason – perhaps because I spoke back at them.”

She added: “That’s why I did Romy and Michele. I wanted to show people who are suffering through that horrible moment of high school of unpopularity and geekdom that it’s going to get better and that you have the strength within you to not give a crap about what anyone else thinks.”
