This show, for me, was a coming of age," says A.J. Cook, Criminal Minds' Supervisory Special Agent Jennifer "JJ" Jareau. "You can look online and find me in the beginning of Season 1 wearing this ridiculous pink pinstriped blazer that will haunt me forever. I look like I'm 12. But I've grown up along with JJ."
"As soon as I became a mom, something shifted where the naïve girl from Canada got the boot and momma bear arrived, confesses real-life mom of two A.J. Cook. "We saw that happen with JJ on the show, too."
