The One Thing You Never Noticed In "13 Going On 30"

Whoa, this is MAJOR foreshadowing!

Posted on

It's been 13 years since 13 Going on 30 came out and it still holds up as one of the best rom-coms ever.

Columbia Pictures

But I'm about to blow your damn mind, because it turns out the very beginning COMPLETELY foreshadows the end of the movie.

Columbia Pictures

Remember how 30-year-old Jenna Rink was an editor at Poise magazine?

Columbia Pictures

At the end, we discover that Jenna is the one who has been selling Poise's secrets to their competitor magazine, Sparkle.

Columbia Pictures

But we actually learn this at the very beginning of the movie, right when Jenna wakes up as a 30-year-old. Seriously.

Columbia Pictures

Right after her magic transformation, a very confused Jenna notices a pile of mail sitting on her table...

Columbia Pictures

...so she decides to flip through it to figure out where the heck she is.

Columbia Pictures

NOTHING TO SEE HERE JUST A PILE OF MAIL.

Columbia Pictures

Oh wait, what's this??????

Columbia Pictures

Is that...a letter from Sparkle addressed to Jenna Rink???

Columbia Pictures

YUP. Just 15 minutes into the movie, we see that Jenna Rink has been getting mail from Sparkle, meaning this whole time we (and Jenna) should have known she was the one selling out the company secrets.

MIND = BLOWN!
