Before 'Mad Men', Kiernan Shipka Showed Her Talents In Commercials & They're Ridiculously Cute — VIDEOS
Even though I'm gonna weep real tears when we have to say goodbye to Sally Draper after Mad Men's finale in a few short weeks, at least the world now knows the power and realness of Kiernan Shipka. The girl is only 15 (she was born in 1999!), but she's one of the best actresses in the game right now. In an adorable interview on a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Shipka talked about the end of the series and about her early days getting started — like when she did a hilarious bit that spoofed Britney Spears on Jimmy Kimmel pre-Mad Men. But that wasn't her first foray into acting. In fact, Kiernan Shipka did a bunch of commercials as a child.
Even though she'll always be known as the sassiest, smartest, and most well-adjusted a daughter of Dick Whitman could be, Shipka actually did quite a bit of TV work before she was the Sally Draper we all know and love. And, as per usual with her, all of her ads are GOLD. Sure, we've seen Sally grow up before our eyes with such nuance and wisdom and lost innocence, so yeah, we know Shipka has range. But she could also face off with Shaquille O'Neal when she was barely even a person, and it's that kind of power and skill that is going to make Shipka her generation's Meryl Streep.
This toilet tissue ad will make you feel feelings.
This one's great because it features young Kiernan Shipka dressed up in cute princess dresses with her little friends.
Silly rabbit, Trix are for KIERNAN. (Also, just added Trix to my grocery list because I am an adult.)
Is there anything better than Shaq, the Real Deal, Superman, being shown up lifting weights by a tiny Kiernan Shipka drinking Mighty Milk in overalls? If there is, I haven't seen it yet.
