It's hard to imagine Julia Louis-Dreyfus as anything other than her trademark snarky, sarcastic, self-deprecating characters, from the legendary Elaine Benes on "Seinfeld," to her more recent turn as second-in-command on "Veep."
But the 53-year-old actress shared this touching throwback picture of herself as a child in the 70's on her Instagram account this week -- and it's clear she's had a touch of sass all along.
The comedian tweeted the photo to help promote her mother's new poetry book, "The Gatherer."
Standing with her arms crossed in her bell-bottoms, Louis-Dreyfus is just plain adorable -- and yes, she looks a lot like Elaine. Except her hair does appear to be a bit more manageable.
