Hit the rewind button and take a look at her before the fame, before her Oscar nomination, way back even before her movie career kicked off — in this week’s Flashback Friday!!!

As with many young actors, they’ve got to get their start somewhere. For JLaw, it was on a series of commercial spots for MTV’s Sweet 16 series. Although she was not featured on the actual show itself, she provided the teen archetype for the teems typically featured on the show.

The series documented the lives of teenagers of wealthy parents who throw huge celebrations to mark their most notable birthday. Parties included quinceañeras and other big birthdays, including a My Super Sweet 21 and My Super Swag 18. The series used “Sweet Sixteen” by Hilary Duff as the theme song.

During the 3-year-run (2005-2008), a number of celebrity coming of age parties were also featured. Bow Wow, Sean Kingston, Aly and AJ, Chris Brown and Soulja Boy Tell Em all had their parties filmed for the series.
