The best thing about Scarlett Johansson isn't her acting skillz. It's not her super cool speaking voice, her glowy skin, her insane bod, or the fact that she convinced me several years ago that being a bombshell with a tiny septum piercing could be the most bad-ass thing on earth. 

No. The undisputed best thing about Scarlett Johansson is the fact that she used to have a mullet -- and an extremely intentional mullet, at that. Back in 20o3, she wore that punky 'fashion' mop with pride -- often with a dark, jewel-toned smokey eye and a peachy-nude lip. Love it or loath it, you really can't deny that it was a look -- and our Scar killed it. 

Clearly, we aren't the only ones who think so: For her new W Magazine cover shot by Mert Alas, hairstylist Didier Malige and makeup artist Aaron de Mey seemingly styled Johansson as a modern-day version of her early-aughts-self -- and the results are a bit mind-boggling. That is to say, the actress and new mom, now 30, looks exactly as she did at 18. Same makeup, same tousled blonde shag (albeit, a wig), same ageless head. 

We may have just found our new favorite Scarlett -- even if the mullet is a bit less extreme this time 'round.
