Never fear, middle schoolers: Even the most beautiful celebrities had awkward stages.
Kim Kardashian has photo evidence to prove it, with an epic shot she posted Thursday to Instagram. It's a 20-year-old pic of herself with childhood friend Nicole Richie, giving thumbs up in what looks like a photo booth (not the Apple kind). We imagine Kris Jenner dropped them off at the Calabasas mall, and this is how the pair of 13-year-olds spent their afternoon.
"#ThrowbackThursday @nicolerichie and I being oh so cool at 13 years old," Kardashian, 33, captioned the image, which Richie linked to on Twitter, writing, "Brace Yourselves!"
