13 Going On 30 star Christa Allen has officially made us feel old by revealing her age.
The actress, who played 13-year-old Jenna Rink in the movie, toyed with fans on social media as she pointed out that she is, in fact, now almost 30. We can’t.
Christa shared a video to TikTok that has now been watched over 10million times and threw it back to 13 Going On 30 and fans couldn’t get enough.
In the movie, that was released 17 years ago in 2004, Jenna wishes on her 13th birthday to be 30 years old. She wakes up the next day to find herself 30 – only to find out that her life isn’t as dreamy as she’d hoped.
She joked: ‘People be like, “Weren’t you the 13-year-old in 13 Going On 30??” Yup… and I’m almost 30 now.’
‘Feel old yet??’ Christa teased.
Fans were floored after learning Christa’s age and called for her to reboot the film, only this time playing Jenna in her 30s, while others couldn’t get over how much she looks like Jennifer Garner, who had originally played Jenna’s older self.
‘First of all, how dare you remind us we almost in our 30s,’ commented one fan, while another posted: ‘Oh no, I’m so old.’
‘Feeling old and I’m only 23,’ added one fan, while another pointed out that Christa has barely aged: ‘WAIT ALMOST THIRTY? Your skin, so youth, such youngness, mega woah.’
‘But you actually look like the actress who played the older you,’ commented one follower. Another agreed: ‘it’s crazy bc you KINDA look like jen garner.’

Minds were blown that the film has now come full circle: ‘Is this your way of saying Jenna’s finally 13 going on 30.’
Another wrote: ‘Knew you were her but… but… it’s all full circle now.’
Naturally, a whole load of fans couldn’t resist commenting with the movie’s iconic line: ‘Thirty, flirty and thriving.’
All we need now is some magic wishing dust and a packet of Razzles.
Since 13 Going On 30, Christa went on to star in US series Revenge as Charlotte Grayson, Baby Daddy and Code Black. Her movie titles include Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, One Wish and The Valley.
Christa’s video comes after Jennifer and Mark Ruffalo were seen reuniting nearly 20 years after starring in 13 Going On 30.
The duo are now working together on new film The Adam Project and Jennifer couldn’t resist nodding back to their classic rom-com as she shared a selfie of her and Mark together on set.
‘Wishing dust worked! And I got a perfect day with my old pal.’
Mark had played the older version of Jenna’s best friend Matty in the movie.
Sadly, though, fans will have to forgo any hopes of a 13 Going On 30 sequel, as Jennifer think the movie should stand alone.
Speaking on Good Morning America, she said of a follow-up film: ‘What like 15 Going On 50? Let’s simmer down! Leave well enough alone!’
