Then: In 1981, a pint-sized Sarah Michelle Gellar was just beginning her decades-long acting career, starring in commercials such as a particularly memorable one for Burger King that she posted to Twitter on Thursday in which she dissed McDonald's and claimed their burgers had less meat than those of their competitors. Bad move for the future "Buffy"!
"When I was 5 I did a commercial for Burger King," the actress told the U.K.'s Sunday Express in 2004. "McDonald's were so outraged, they sued Burger King and named me in the lawsuit. I wasn't allowed to eat there. It was tough because, when you're a little kid, McDonald's is where all your friends have their birthday parties, so I missed out on a lot of apple pies."

Now: Gellar, 36, has moved on to acting roles that, hopefully, will not get her sued. Mrs. Freddie Prinze Jr., who happens to be a mom of two, is co-starring alongside funnyman Robin Williams on David E. Kelley's freshman sitcom "The Crazy Ones," which airs Thursdays on CBS.
