We’ve all been through a lot of changes over the years. We’ve gone through various awkward phases, bad haircuts, and that year we thought glitter should be applied liberally.
Here’s the thing though, it’s not like celebrities are immune to these ridiculous memories. It’s not just us regular folk who were trying our best to keep up with trends, celebrities were all normal people once, and they’ve got the pictures to prove it.
Because the internet is both a glorious and horrific place, you can very easily get access to a lot of embarrassing pictures of all your favorite stars.
Luckily for us, a lot of them have a really good sense of humor, because they have shared quite a few gems over the years.
Here are some of the best of the best childhood pictures of some of your favorite stars:
1. Blake Lively is ready to ‘Spice up your life’
Bria Madrid recently shared this photo of herself at a Spice Girls concert, because she realized the girl she took a picture with was none other than Blake Lively.
She wrote “Found a picture when I was 5 at my first concert. Took a picture with a girl dressed up as Baby Spice who I just realized now was Blake Lively.”
2. Barbara Streisand had a whole gang
Imagine posing with Mick Jagger, Barbara Strissand, Meryl Streep, and Michael Douglas all at once? Pretty cool right?
3. Brooke Shields really does love Lucy
Because really, who doesn’t love Lucy?
4. Victoria Beckham and David Beckham’s purple wedding was really…something
They are cutting their cake (or at least I think it’s a cake, it looks like it’s made of leaves and apples so I can’t be sure) with a sword so there really is no better wedding photo on the planet.
5. All your 90s teen faves together
You’ve got Topanga, you’ve got Ashley Banks, you’ve got Felicity, and Six all in one picture so really how could you go wrong?
6. A ‘Full House’ of silly pictures
It’s always nice when TV friends actually like each other in real life, and these two have been BFFs since the 90s.
7. Uncle Jesse always loved Michelle the most
John Stamos and the Olsen twins have always been close, and this picture is honestly too cute for words.
8. Tom Cruise with his old buddies Sean Penn and Tim Hutton looking cool in black and white
Two out of three are trying to look tough, but then one didn’t get the memo.
9. That hair swoop is pretty on point
Before she was Donna on That 70s Show, Laura Prepon rocked a super sweet hairstyle that anyone who was alive in the 90s can remember well.
10. Before Rachel and Blossom were Rachel and Blossom
Mayim Bialik shared this photo of her and Jennifer Anniston before they both found fame on their respective shows. They were both on a show called Molloy.
11. Mom and daughter hanging out
The iconic Goldie Hawn and her daughter Kate Hudson look basically identical now, but back in the day she was just like any other kid.
