Celebrities - they were just like us, and these people have the photos to prove it. There is a nostalgic joy that comes from looking through old photo albums and seeing what your family was up to back in the day. Well, as the people on this list discovered their family was hanging out with some pretty spectacular talent - they just didn't know it yet.

This list is a collection of photos of people who were either in the same circle as, friends with or even dating some of the biggest stars out there before anyone even knew their name. Imagine finding out that that old familiar face you used to call 'aunt' or 'uncle' when you were a kid belonged to someone with an academy award? Scroll down below to see some photos of everyday people with some pretty famous names that are probably older than their #10YearChallenge glow-up. And don't forget to upvote your favs!
