Rare Photos Of Celebrities From Before They Were Famous
Thanks to Instagram, celebrities now love sharing pictures of before they became big stars. We’ve tracked down 13 pictures of everyone’s favorite celebrities and shared some of the pictures from before they were famous:
13. Jennifer Garner
Jennifer Garner hasn’t changed one bit since she was a little girl. Here is she on a boat with her two sisters, Susannah and Melissa, and it’s clear that she looks really similar to her older sis, Susannah. These two are practically twins!
12. Katy Perry
Here is Katy Perry at the age of 13. Who knew that she ever had an awkward phase! We just know her for her amazing levels of confidence and sex appeal. But, back then, she was just like the rest of us!
11. Halle Berry
This Oscar-winning actress was always a stunner. This flashback was from 1986 when she was a contestant in the Miss USA pageant. She didn’t win and was the runner-up to Christy Fichtner of Texas.
10. Blake Lively
Here Blake Lively is at a Spice Girls concert in 1997. She clearly wanted to be a Spice Girl. You can tell by the hair and the footwear! She even admits this much. “Pretending to be someone else… since 1997 (Thanks @briaaamadrid for the photo of us at the Spice Girls concert. Sorry -not sorry- I tricked you into thinking I was @emmaleebunton),” she wrote.
9. Sarah Michelle Gellar
Who knew that Sarah Michelle Gellar’s hair was once really, really dark! As a child, the former Buffy the Vampire Slayer looked almost identical to her daughter Charlotte. The two could be twins!
8. Reese Witherspoon
Reese was the most adorable pre-teen! She posted this old headshot from when she was just 12 years old. “Parasol ✅ Top pony ✅ Sassy smile ✅ Cut off Jean overalls ✅ 12 year old confidence 💯💖✅ Just for clarification, I’m currently a much more impressive 5’2 #OldHeadShot,” she captioned the pic.
7. Gwyneth Paltrow
This might come as a shock, but Gwyneth Paltrow isn’t a natural blond. Here she is as a teenager with her dad with some noticeably darker hair. She’s still pretty, but we definitely like her more as a blond.
6. Diane Kruger
During the ’90s, Diane Kruger was a model. She booked advertisements for Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Salvatore Ferragamo, Giorgio Armani, Jil Sander, Christian Dior, Burberry and Louis Vuitton, and walked the runway for Marc Jacobs, D&G and Sonia Rykiel. Here is she is during that time period dressed in typical ’90s fashion.
5. Amanda Seyfried
This picture of Amanda Seyfried is from 1991. She was about six years old and in elementary school. According to her, she was bullied as a child for being pale and ugly but, from our perspective, she was anything but ugly. She was adorable!
4. Dwayne Johnson
Before Dwayne was an actor, he was a football player. He briefly played on the Miami Hurricanes national championship team until an injury sidelined him. This picture is from his Hurricanes’ days. He was only 22!
3. Jenna Dewan
Here is a glamor shot from Jenna Dewan’s childhood. She doesn’t really look like the dancer/actress that we know now. It must be the huge, fluffy curls, all of the makeup and the bejeweled jacket!
2. Kate Beckinsale
This was the headshot that Kate Beckinsale used when she was launching her acting career. It was taken by her stepdad outside her family’s garden shed when she was 17! She looks younger than that, though!
1. Kate Hudson
Kate Hudson was the prettiest little girl! She posted this throwback picture of her childhood and we are absolutely in love! She looks so sweet and innocent, and we can definitely see a hint of the beautiful woman she was going to become in this photo!
