Evan Rachel Wood took us on a walk down memory lane when Twitter user @katiexwright posted the single greatest Vanity Fair cover of all time: A collection of 2003's brightest female teen stars, including Amanda Bynes, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Mandy Moore, Hilary Duff, Alexis Bledel, Wood, Raven-Symoné and Lindsay Lohan.

Obviously, we now know that some (like the Olsen twins) have done much, much better than others (we're looking at you, Lohan). Don't even get us started on Amanda Bynes right now. In 2003, though, there was no way to tell what fates would befall the then-teens.
Wood said she learned an important lesson that day, one that she has carried with her throughout her career and may be responsible for the fact that she is on the saner end of the spectrum than some others in the shoot. She explained on Twitter:

Side note , I have shot the cover of "vanity fair" since and had a much different experience. It was quite lovely.— Evan Rachel Wood (@evanrachelwood) October 15, 2014
I think when you are young and inexperienced and shy you can be bullied more. I learned to say no. @rachelm97x— Evan Rachel Wood (@evanrachelwood) October 16, 2014
