It is always nice to find a hidden stash of various old pictures from your childhood. Oftentimes though, with a couple of teeth missing, a pound or two of baby weight and a quirky hairdo, we can barely recognize ourselves in those vintage photos. Us being regular people, the old images sporting all the things listed above are no surprise, but if you’ve ever wondered whether the Hollywood stars were immune to looking silly in their childhood snaps, we had compiled a list of celebrities photos from when they were young to clear up the mystery.

We are so attached to particular images of some famous celebrities that seeing their childhood pictures leaves us surprised to find out they were once young, too. And though some of the famous people looked as pristine in their young days as they do now, the others were undoubtedly ugly ducklings and not the most popular kids in their high schools.
