Alexis Bledel, better known as Rory Gilmore, turns 32 today. Yeah, you read that right, Rory Gilmore is in her 30s now. If you didn’t already feel old, Gilmore Girls started airing 12 years ago, so it’s older than every iPod that’s ever been sold. And to top it all off, Alexis Bledel still hasn’t really found her post-Gilmore Girls calling. But the good news is, Rory Gilmore is actually still relatable over a decade later. Our boyfriends may not have built us a car and we might not have the coolest mom on the entire planet, but we do know that Chinese food is a celebration meal and that coffee is the most important part of the day. Rory Gilmore just always knows what to say.
