Before these actors and comedians took over the world with their undeniably skills, they were just aimless teenagers whose parents made them brush their hair and wear their best outfit for picture day. Who knew they’d go on to be some of the most recognisable faces in the entertainment industry. Here are 9 huge celebrities’ high school photos.
Before he became hugely famous for being the incredibly over-relaxed and super chilled guy both on the big screen and off in the real world, Owen was a smart looking dude. Check out the Jedward haircut and the incredibly awkward smile. Classic. Side note, is there anything about Mr Wilson that you can truly dislike? How can you be mad at that face?
Holy crap, just look at that mullet. That is one of the strongest looks we’ve come across in quite some time, clearly procing that Dinklage didn’t give a damn about what other people thought of any aspect of his appearance. We bet the photographer had no idea that this guy would become one of the most recongnisable and beloved faces on the small screen. We love you, Tyrion Lannester.
This photo was taken years and years before Pratt established himself in the cult hit show Parks and recreation and then went on to become one of Hollywood’s golden boys. When he had this photo taken, we bet he didn’t know that he’d be speeding across time and space with his fellow Guardians of the Galaxy. Man, we can’t wait for the sequel. Christmas 2016 cannot come soon enough.
Ah, Lindsay. This photo was taken before the child star was catapulted into the limelight and pulled an epic Macally Culkin on the world. She looks far too sweet here to ever be capable of the brutal and widely publicised downward spiral she fell into during recent years. We’re just glad that she’s back on her feet, ish, and that she’s fixed those teeth. Good luck, Lindsay.
This is one of the cutest and awesome high school photos we’ve seen. What’s great is that you can already see the movie star’s down to earth and lovable nature. Admit it, that smile is pretty infectious. If you haven’t figured out already, we’ve got a little bit of a soft spot for Emma Stone and wish her nothing but good tidings and joy, even if it’s not even nearly Christmas yet…
Holy moly. Mr Franco is almost unrecognisable here. Not only that, but why does he look so incredibly angry. Did we say something, James? Anyway, this was year’s before the actor / writer / painter / lecturer began to take full cotrol of his life and dip his toe into seeminly ever vocation possible. We feel like he’s got that pill from the Limitless movie and isn’t sharing it with anybody else. Nobody can be that productive without a little bit of extra help, can they? Damn you, Franco.
Haha, check out Channing’s army colonel cut and crooked smile and try not laugh out loud. If this image does’t tickle you even a little, we suggest that you seek out immediate professional help. Actually, maybe it’s just me who takes this much joy from the image. Either way, Channing is pretty suited and booted for this photo, so we guess he took photo day petty seriously back in the day.
This image is pretty incredible. If you haven’t seen the movie fast Times at Ridgemont High, search for it immediately so that you can see Penn looking exactly like this, but in colour and moving around as a stupid surfer dude. Who knew that this geeky looking kid would eventually become of the world’s biggest film stars, or that he’d be helping the FBI to track down majorly wanted drug cartel leaders. Who knew!?
Louie, Louie, Louiiiiiie! This image is pretty priceless, especially when you take into account how cool he thinks he looks in that tight leather jacket. Back then he was probably an aimless teen, but now he’s one of the most sought after comedians who turned the television industry on its head by brokering the deal of all deals with TV channel AMC.
