Landing the cover of Vanity Fair at age 15 might seem like a dream come true, but for Evan Rachel Wood, it was something closer to a nightmare. Back in 2003, the Charlie Countryman actress was chosen as one of nine young starlets to appear in the magazine's Young Hollywood issue, an experience she recalls now, at age 27, with absolutely no fondness whatsoever.

On Wednesday, Oct. 15, a fan tweeted a photo from the VF spread with the caption "Never forget," tagging Wood and several of her fellow cover girls including Amanda Bynes, Mandy Moore, Hilary Duff, Alexis Bledel, Raven-Symone, and Lindsay Lohan. (The monumental pull-out cover also featured Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, along with the valley girl-inspired headline, "It's Totally Raining Teens! And It's, Like, So a Major Moment in Pop Culture.")

Responding to the tweet, Wood made it clear that she hadn't forgotten. She even shared some of her memories of the shoot in a series of follow-up posts.

In them, she recalled being "close to tears" afterward, saying she "wasn't comfortable" and "felt like meat." She also said there was pressure to "shut up and do what you are told." Read her tweets below.
