America Ferrera Shares a Pre-‘Ugly Betty’ Headshot (and She Looks Exactly the Same)

Headshots can be embarrassing or an overall cringe-fest—but not for America Ferrera.

The Superstore actress shared her headshot from way before her Ugly Betty days and the pic is stunning. (Plus, how does she look exactly the same?!) If you don't believe us, check out the throwback pic for yourself.

She posted the headshot on her Instagram and captioned it, "Taking it #waybackwednesday to a homemade headshot of a pre-sisterhood, pre-Ugly Betty, 20-year-old baby America. All I can see is that bombass blowout I did on myself. #hairskills"

The black-and-white headshot showed a young Ferrera smoldering on the camera with a blowout to match. (Um, can she share her hair secrets?) But overall, let's be honest, if she didn't mention it was a throwback, we would've completely thought this way taken yesterday.

The post garnered over 48,000 likes with fans showering her comments section with heart eye and fire emojis. One fan even asked the question we were all thinking, "So you're just never going to age then?" Nope, not at all.

The Ugly Betty star is very active on Instagram. When she's not giving us fashion snapshots, throwbacks and telling us to go out and vote, she's giving us very rare glimpses of her kids. The mom of two recently welcomed her second child back in May and shared a very candid postpartum selfie to her 1.1 million followers.

We look forward to more throwback pics, America!
