Actress Lauren Graham recently took her Twitter followers back in time to 1999 with an impressive throwback picture.
On Friday, in honor of actress Connie Britton’s 48th birthday, Lauren posted a picture of the two of them together that was taken nearly 16 years ago.

The 32-year-old actresses apparently looked just as stunning then as they do now, nearly two decades later. It did not take very long for fans and critics to react to the throwback picture of Lauren and Connie with tweets of their own.

Lauren Graham openly admitted in a past interview that she and Connie Britton once shared an apartment together as roommates when they were still just struggling actresses. Those days were likely long before the actresses found success on their respective hit TV sitcoms.
Will anything ever be as important as the fact that connie britton and lauren graham were roommates?? — emma (@eminnems) March 6, 2015
My favorite thing to think about is the fact that Connie Britton and Lauren Graham were roommates in the 90s.

In May 2013, the former Gilmore Girls star spoke openly about the days that she shared an address with the Nashville star during an interview on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
“We lived in an empty house that we weren’t supposed to be living in. We had no furniture and all we ate were Rice Krispies Treats.”
On Saturday, the former Friday Night Lights star thanked everyone for their birthday wishes on Twitter.
Thank y’all so much for all the birthday wishes! Hashtag blessed. But like for real. — Connie Britton (@conniebritton) March 7, 2015
Chances are that her fellow actress and former roommate Lauren Graham was one of the people indirectly addressed in that heartwarming message.
In the year that the throwback picture was taken, Connie Britton was a series regular on the popular sitcom Spin City, starring Michael J. Fox.
Between 2001 and 2006, she made appearances in numerous television series — including The West Wing and 24 — before landing one of her most iconic small-screen roles in Friday Night Lights.

However, she landed her first iconic TV role in the year after the picture was taken when the Gilmore Girls first premiered in 2000.
