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. It turns out even beautiful ice princesses like January went through an awkward phase just like the rest of us! I will say that her feathered, mullet haircut is by far one of the worst I’ve ever seen on a child. 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. I love the accompanying hashtags, too: “#nofilter #obviously #ilovemy9yroldself.”
I’ve looked at it at least eight times now and I can’t stop giggling. 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. Really! 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. 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. #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. Color me equal parts shocked and kinda delighted.
