Watch Michelle Williams on 'Home Improvement' in 1995

Michelle Williams on Home Improvement YouTube

Doesn't it kinda seem like Michelle Williams has always been famous? After all, despite the fact that she's only 32, Williams -- whose latest film is the big-budget prequel "Oz the Great and Powerful" -- has been appearing in movies and on television for nearly 20 years, earning three Oscar nominations for films like "My Week with Marilyn" and "Brokeback Mountain." She is, as they say, big time.

But hard as it is to remember, there was a point before she was famous — and we've got the goofy sitcom clip to prove it.

Here's the deal: Back in 1995, "Home Improvement," which starred Tim Allen as a fix-it guru with his own TV show about repairing houses, was one of the most popular sitcoms in America, in part because of its family friendly storylines involving teen heartthrobs Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Zachery Ty Bryan.

And since every teenage boy in a sitcom needs a cute love interest, enter Williams as Jessica, a modern girl with stylish bangs, a hip sweater vest and an open mind about dudes who wear makeup. Hey, the '90s! Needless to say, Williams has blocked most of it out.

"The only thing that I remember was being backstage before," Williams recently told us."Because when you do a sitcom, you come out and you do a curtain call, and the only thing that I remember was seeing the behind-the-scenes, like how the house was built, you know, that it’s not a real house. It’s plywood back there, and people scrawl things on the plywood, and it’s all kind of a construction zone. I remember the behind-the-scenes more than I remember what happened in front of the scenes."

Don't worry, Michelle, we're happy to refresh your memory! Here it is, courtesy of YouTube:
