We hope you have enjoyed Birch-Day as much as we did. Here are Thora and Mena Suvari - sugar and spice as they were probably known on set - on top of the world at the American Beauty LA premiere in 1999.
Yet another two years later, Thora Birch really steps out into her own. Here she is at the LA premiere of American Beauty, making people uncomfortable, because they (like readers of this site today) watched her grow up before their eyes.
Here is Thora at the 1995 Premiere Women in Hollywood Awards. She is still at that adorable age when it is acceptable to wear the same plaid skirt on two red carpets in the same year. Hope the rest of her adolescence is as charming and cute as this.
