"Open and twinkly-magical then and now, 15 years later, they are ruling the world," the actress said before listing some of the young cast — Captain Marvel's Brie Larson, Pretty Little Liar's Ashley Benson and Christa Allen, who played a young Jennifer in both 13 Going on 30 and Ghosts of Girlfriends Past.

"I loved my day with the slumber party crew: they danced with abandon and reminded me of the power of just saying yes—to being in a group, to vulnerability, to wearing a bra over your clothes," she said of the famous scene. "Imagine if every 13 year old girl had an opportunity to dance and feel beautiful like the girls in this film. I am proud of all of you."
