He may wear pink on Wednesdays, but on Tuesday, Jonathan Bennett went for a mammogram.

The “Mean Girls” star took to Instagram in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month to document his breast exam at Shin Imaging Center in Los Angeles.

Bennett filmed himself getting the tissue above each pec squeezed by a massive machine to produce X-ray images that a radiologist then analyzed and checked for abnormalities.

“October is #breastcancerawarenessmonth and I’m showing you what getting a mammogram looks like for me,” the actor, 41, captioned the video.

Bennett told his followers that his husband, Jaymes Vaughan — whom he married in March in Mexico — “had a cancer scare a few years ago,” explaining that the disease runs in both of their families.

Therefore, “screenings are important to us,” Bennett shared.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a mammogram is currently the best method to detect breast cancer early — when it’s easier to treat and before it’s prevalent enough to cause symptoms.
