Who knew Annie was such a fashion icon?

Kristen Wiig shared an adorably geeky #tbt on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday.

Inspired by bad old photos that Ellen's guests were sharing, Kristen decided to put her own embarrassing pic on display.


She may be blonde now, but as a kid, the former Saturday Night Live star had a mopful of dark curls!

"That was the Annie perm," Kristen told Ellen. "I got a perm and put Sun-In in my hair because of Annie." To us, it also looks strikingly similar to Wiig’s SNL character Gilly!

The throwback pic shows the 41-year-old actress all dressed up in a long-sleeve white lace gown for her aunt's wedding. She even has baby's breath sprinkled in her hair!

A little different than her look in Bridesmaids, no?

Kristen was born in 1973 and the original Annie movie came out in 1982, so she was probably about 10 or 11 in the photo. We’re estimating because Kristen has no idea herself! "I’m pretty young," she admitted. "I dunno, I’m pretty bad with age."

This summer, Kristen will begin shooting the all-female Ghostbusters 3, so Ellen decided to have some fun by asking Kristen if she was afraid of ghosts -- and then scaring the crap out of her guest.

We don't know which was scarier -- Kristen’s perm or the "ghost" jumping out of a box!
