10 Things You Didn’t Know About ’13 Going On 30′
8. Ashley Benson and Brie Larsen were members of the “six chicks”
It wouldn’t be a classic teen movie without the inclusion of a “mean girl” clique and 13 Going On 30 is no different. Surprisingly, a few of Hollywood’s familiar faces played a role in the elite group called the”six chicks” before the actresses made their way into leading roles! Ashley Benson, who played Hanna on Pretty Little Liars and Brie Larsen who played in Sort Term 12, were members of the exclusive group that Jenna desperately wanted to be apart of in the film.
7. Christa B. Allen played the young Jennifer Garner in a second film
Originally the directors of 13 Going on 30 intended for Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo to play the younger versions of themselves, but after seeing Christa B. Allen, there was no doubt that she would play the role! Allen was only 12-years old during filming and looked identical to a younger version of Garner, so much so that she actually played the younger version of her in a second film — the 2009 rom com Ghosts of Girlfriends Past.
