Meet The Actress Who Played Young Jenna Rink On '13 Going On 30'
The 2000s gave us some of the most memorable rom-coms of our time with flicks like 50 First Dates, The Holiday, Hitch, Love Actually, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, and more. One film from that era that has aged beautifully and is still worth rewatch after rewatch is 2004's 13 Going on 30, which stars Jennifer Garner as Jenna Rink, a teenager who woke up as a 30-year-old with no memory of the majority of her life after her younger self wished wake up as an older version of herself. The actress who played Young Jenna, Christa Allen, was exactly 13 when the movie first premiered and it looks like she's still as nostalgic over it as we are because she recreated some of Garner's most famous outfits from the film in this cool video!

The video was posted on Allen's TikTok account on May 20. You'll see the now 28-year-old actress in several different outfits resembling Garner's looks in the film including her famous nightgown-and-trench coat ensemble, which is featured on the film's poster. The video will take you on a trip back in time and let you relive all your favorite scenes from the movie—especially considering Allen's undeniable resemblance to Garner. Fun fact: Allen also played a younger version of Garner on the 2009 film Ghosts of Girlfriend's Past.
Believe it or not, 13 Going on 30 celebrated its 16th anniversary this 2020 and the occasion was even commemorated by Garner's love interest in the film, Mark Ruffalo with a heartfelt Instagram post.
Allen also posted her own tribute to the film and reminisced over her experience shooting it in a 2019 Instagram post.
We guess we're not the only ones nostalgic over this early aughts classic! Now if only we could get Garner, Ruffalo, and the rest of the cast to recreate that memorable "Thriller" dance scene. In the meantime, we'll be rewatching the film nonstop and blasting Liz Phair's "Why Can't I?" on repeat all day long.

Here's my two cents on the letter, call for help of our medical frontliners. Let’s hear what our healthcare workers have to say and try to understand it from their point of view, they have every right to criticize how this medical crisis is being handled by the government... after all, they're the experts on the topic. Though we see the frontliners as heroes in our eyes, the lack of concrete plans from the government to combat COVID-19 makes them feel otherwise. Healthcare workers are already starting to voice out how they feel as though they are being sacrificed as they follow through their sworn oath. We wouldn’t send our soldiers to war unarmed and without a concrete plan; the same should be expected for our frontliners. How can we send them to battle without proper gear? Why is there still a debate on whether mass testing is needed or not when the experts on that field continuously insist its importance in flattening the curve? Why is this still not the priority when it’s literally our lives on the line? It’s not like the medical experts demanding for mass testing are just stating their opinion about this mindlessly, they studied this laboriously. Make them feel heard so that all the sacrifices that they’re doing and all the deaths of their colleagues are not in vain. More than the words of praises, what our medical professionals truly need right now is TANGIBLE support. Here is to hoping they get that soon. @errren.22

Here is a photograph taken yesterday from the photo shoot I did in our house. ? I really love dressing up and being dolled up, it makes me feel great and confident of who I am ?
I was actually hesitant to post these pictures of mine. My sister eveb asked me to change my Facebook Profile Picture and it took me hours to decide if I should. But, I realized that this is me, the real me. I should be confident of my body and of who I really am.
At the end of the day, I dress up not for other people but for myself ? To all the ladies out there and even gentlemen who are taking a second to think if they should post their pictures, worried about what will others say their body, remember that we just need to be just ourselves. Be confident and let us support each other ? Let us be friends! IG: @romynaaaaaaa_
They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted?
I have forgotten when was the last time we shared a smile - the last time when I saw the glow in your eyes and the last time when you whispered an I love you to me. I have forgotten when, but here I am - writing to you again.
I do not know if you will read this or you will just add this one to my proses and poems that you left unread, but you see, I am still hoping. I am mailing the pain of us to the gods out there - hoping they can take the pain away. I should have gotten over you, but instead of forgetting and accepting our ending, I am writing about us in tissue sheets, carving about us on trees, telling about us on the back of my journals, hoping that a thousand or a million write ups about us, can make me forget about what happened.
I am writing, waiting for the point where I can no longer write anymore, for I have none to tell - but when? I have nothing in me anymore, but the memories of us - and no matter how hard I try put those to its own grave, the memories grow back like lilies in the swamp - painful and beautiful at the same time.
No matter how hard I try to silence those and put it at the back of my mind, those ring back, playing like the favorite song we used to listen. They say heartbreaks turn into poetry and that is what happening to us - but poetry should be dulcet and dreamy, why does ours sound like pain and agony? They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted? Darling, I guess not.
Bored this quarantine? Ever heard of the #chloetingchallenge? Since you got a lot of time in your hands, why not try Chloe Ting's workouts for free? YES! You heard it right. For FREE!
Aside from the fact that you can do it comfortably inside of your home, it doesn't require any equipment. You just need to be present! If you don't have any yoga mat, you can use a towel instead. For weights you can just use your body weight or water bottles.
Don't worry, based on my personal experience (and for others who already tried it) it's quiet effective. Tho the 2 Weeks Shred is a bit repetitive but some of the programs are not. If you are already curious about Chloe's programs, here's the link: https://www.chloeting.com/program/
