117 Rare Celebrity Childhood Photos Show Barely Recognizable Stars
When we look at famous people, we sometimes forget that they aren't superhumans and that they actually stumbled through the awkwardness of childhood just like us at one point. Photos of our youth tell vivid stories of where we came from and provided a window into the styles and customs of a bygone era. Through these glimpses of young celebrities, we get an impression of how they lived and grew up before reaching the red carpet.
Funnily enough, they too did participate in awkward family photos and had the ugly duckling yearbook images taken at the gawky stages of puberty. Some of these now popular celebrities seem to have found the anti-aging elixir, while others changed almost beyond recognition. And we've gathered more than a hundred of these before and after celebrity photos, so proofs are aplenty.
Youth comes with its own unique beauty often depicted in awkward photos, but it's impossible to deny that just like a bottle of wine, some things (and people) genuinely do get better with age.
