Sarah Michelle Gellar is having a good old laugh at her throwback photos.

Talk about cringing all the way down memory lane.

The 41-year-old star roped in her longtime friend Kelly Ripa as she shared an old picture of the pair on Instagram.

Taking to the social media site on Friday, Sarah Michelle captioned the shot, writing: ‘Sometimes when I see these old pics, I don’t even know where to start with the — what was I thinking?!?’

Same hun, same.

To be fair her throwback is one of the best out there and we think she knows it as she joked: ‘Well @kellyripa at least we co-ordinated our giant bang flip.’

The picture showed a fashionable pair in long black jackets and in denim – that millennials now call mum jeans – and hair swept to one side.

It certainly looks like the late 80s or early 90s, alright.

‘I mean what was my pink even doing??’ Sarah Michelle wrote in reference to the little finger sticking out.

We were thinking that too, but we really didn’t want to be the first to point it out.

Kelly also ripped into the throwback when she commented underneath the post: ‘Did I ever have a good hair day?’

Taking their banter one step up Sarah responded: ‘Hey I have always wanted my hair to look like you — it’s just perspective.’

The pair have remained friends for years after first meeting on the set of All My Children in the ’90s.

Kelly, who spent 12 years playing Hayley Vaughan, also met her husband and on-screen love interest Mark Consuelos on the daytime drama.

However, before the lovebirds even sparked a romance, Kelly knew he was the one.

‘I saw my husband in a photograph before I saw him,’ the 47-year-old told Bruce Bozzi for his SiriusXM Radio Andy show Lunch with Bruce last summer. ‘I knew when I saw his photograph.’

She added: ‘They had been looking for this character for some time. They were looking really for a Latino actor, not an actor that was like — they didn’t want like a dark-haired guy. They wanted a Latino actor.

‘And so I had auditioned every Latino actor in the city and around the city and then California. And then all of a sudden, Judy Blye Wilson, who was the casting director at All My Children, said, “I found him.”’

She said when she looked at his picture her ‘entire future with him flash before’her eyes.

And it seems like they got their happily ever after as their love blossomed, and over 20 years later they share three children – sons Michael, 21, and Joaquin, 16, and daughter Lola, 17.
