Wonder Years star Danica McKellar recently shared a bikini photo that left some fans wondering how she looks like she’s barely aged after all these years in the entertainment industry.
On Friday, the 44-year-old actress took to Instagram to wish her followers “*twice* the fun this weekend” with a swimsuit snapshot and its mirror image. Danica challenged her followers to figure out which bikini photo was the original, letting them know that there was one detail that would help them solve the puzzle.
“Hey is #FlippedFriday a thing? Wanna start a trend?” Danica wrote. “Seriously, can you tell which is the original image and which has been flipped? There *is* a clue.”
The brunette beauty then joked that she was starting to sound like Angie Dove, the murder-solving matchmaker she plays in the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries franchise The Matchmaker Mysteries.
In her bikini photo, McKellar is rocking a leopard-print two-piece with gold trim around the edges. The bathing suit has thick side and shoulder straps, a deep V-neck, and low-cut bottoms that show off her toned stomach. She’s posing with one leg bent and one hand on her hip. With her other hand, she’s playfully pulling on a strand of her long dark hair.
She’s posing in front of an opulent indoor pool surrounded by ornate wall mosaics and marble statues. Danica revealed that the luxurious location of her swimsuit photo shoot was the famed Hearst Castle Roman Pool in San Simeon, California. According to AFAR, the pool was open to the public for the first time this summer, but Danica says that she was there as a guest of heiress Lydia Hearst and her husband, Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick.

“Wow!! My dear….you are a goddess!! What an amazing figure!!!” wrote one admirer.
“You look absolutely amazing so gorgeous and very sexy,” another remarked.
“Gorgeous. Smart. Confident. Stunning,” read another fan’s list of adjectives to describe Danica.

Hey, beautiful people! ???? My #wcw goes to the one and only Dolly Parton… I LOVE DOLLY PARTON! But then again, who doesn't? ???? I've loved Dolly Parton since I was a little girl and watched her on TV with my grandmother. ❤ . . . Then, two years ago, our paths crossed for the first time when she chose one of my children's books for inclusion in her amazing @Imaginationlibrary, and then asked me to narrate its @thelibraryfilm documentary. ???? . . Now, I'm SO EXCITED to share the screen with her this holiday season in #ChristmasAtDollywood for @hallmarkchannel. We start shooting in a couple weeks! Somebody pinch me!! ❤❤❤ . . . "Everybody has a purpose." "Energy begets energy." -Dolly Parton ???? . . . P.S. Thank you @ninaweinmanswift – the writer of #ChristmasAtDollywood – for giving me this awesome shirt!! ????
Unfortunately for fans of Danica McKellar’s bikini body, she’ll likely stay pretty covered up for her next big project. However, she might make their holidays a little merrier. According to Romper, McKellar will star alongside country music legend Dolly Parton in The Hallmark Movie Channel original movie Christmas At Dollywood, which premieres December 8. As evidenced by the Instagram post above, Danica is pretty excited about working with Dolly.
