There are few things I love more than an awkward celebrity #TBT on Instagram, and this glimpse into the ’90s childhood of January Jones is no exception. Â It turns out even beautiful ice princesses like January went through an awkward phase just like the rest of us! Â I will say that her feathered, mullet haircut is by far one of the worst I’ve ever seen on a child. Â It’s so bad I almost feel like she’s kind of earned the right to be tall, thin, gorgeous, and successful beyond our wildest dreams. Â I love the accompanying hashtags, too: “#nofilterÂ #obviouslyÂ #ilovemy9yroldself.”
I’ve looked at it at least eight times now and I can’t stop giggling. Â Another thing her Instagram post accomplishes (besides almost making her relatable to the everywoman) is that it demonstrates January Jones might actually have a personality. Â Really! Â She’s a recent Instagram joiner, so I perused through some of her other posts and it seems like she’s actually in possession of a sense of humor. Â She also likes to regularly share gems from her awkward childhood, which of course I love:
“The Jones sisters are here to remind all homely little girls to dream big.. anything is possible with the confidence to ignore judgement, encouragement from a friend, love for yourself and the patience to grow out a bad haircut.Â #tbt#mybangsareNOTsupposedtobefeathered”
When she’s not busy keeping us in the closet over her baby’s paternity, banging Liam Hemsworth, and perfecting her frigid on-screen personality, it seems like January Jones is actually pretty likeable. Â Color me equal parts shockedÂ andÂ kinda delighted.
