Multi-talented Beyonce Knowles wasn’t always a renowned actress, super model, record producer and musical performer. Beyonce’s amazing voice was first discovered when she wowed the crowd at her Texan high school’s talent show. Even in her pre-teen picture, she poses with style and has a little glint of starlet in her cute blue eyes.

Catherine Zeta Jones is a famous actress originally from South Wales who is known for her sexy roles in blockbusters such as Entrapment and Intolerable Cruelty. Jones began performing in a children’s theatre group before she was even ten years old, and her pig-tailed picture shows a star in the making who could sell tickets at any age.

South African beauty Charlize Theron was discovered by a modeling agency at the age of sixteen, and traveled to NY where she began her explosive acting career. Though she has certainly undergone amazing transformations for films such as Monster, thinking of smoldering hot Theron does not typically summon a picture of an innocent looking, baby faced preteen.

Jennifer Aniston is an American actress best known for her role as Rachel on Friends. Aniston played a quirky, fun loving girl-next-door character that would later become her trademark — and this college snapshot is clearly foreshadowing.

When pop star Jennifer Lopez sang ‘I’m Still Jenny From The Block’, this is certainly not who we imagined her former self to be. A cute little girl with big brown eyes, Lopez grew up to be a sexy musical performer with a big round butt.

Kate Moss is a London born international supermodel who was discovered when she was only fifteen years old. Moss is notorious for her publicly documented cocaine abuse, which caused her to lose a multi million dollar modeling contract with retail chain H&M.

Although Brooklyn born actress Alyssa Milano began her career when she performed in the Broadway musical Annie, she’s better known for her starring role in television series Charmed. This little cutie grew up to be an avid baseball fan and PETA activist who has almost ten tattoos.

Academy Award winning actress Angelina Jolie has been widely referred to as one of the most beautiful women in the world. Even in her old photograph, Jolie retains an aura of sultry maturity. In fact, Jolie’s old picture has begun to look better than her present state ever since a picture of her gummy plastic surgery neck hit the tabloids.

Halle Berry’s high school picture is so tame it’s almost hard to believe; she’s wearing what looks like scrubs with little cartoon pencils printed on them. Berry moved to Illinois in the early 80s, where she acted in a number of television sitcoms, but received her big break from her role in Spike Jonze’s Jungle Fever. Halle has been on countless ‘Hottest Women’ lists and remains a total sex pot today.

Milla Jovovich is a Serbian born actress who has also tried her hand as a musician and fashion designer. Jovovich’s staple is appearing in sci-fi films as a sexy, ass-kicking goddess. She even looks ready to kick some ass in her high school yearbook picture.

Teenaged Gwen Stefani was fairly shy, and held jobs at the Dairy Queen and MAC makeup store. Stefani’s first musical performance was at her high school’s talent show in 1987 — meaning she’s been performing for over two decades. The rock-pop idol is still a bombshell with the same fresh looking face.

Pin up model Dita Von Teese is most famous for her marriage to Marilyn Manson, which ended in 2006. Teese’s real name is Heather Renee Sweet, and she is originally from a small town in Michigan. Her younger picture resembles her look today in every way besides her hair, which is now black.

This very vanilla picture of Miranda Kerr makes her look like a mom from the Hamptons. Kerr is an Australian supermodel best known for her work as a Victoria’s Secret Angel, but her first notable work was as a Billabong model in the late 90s. Her young image above is from a 1998 Dolly Magazine photo shoot, controversial because Kerr was only 13 years old at the time.

Gisele Bundchen is a Brazilian supermodel so successful that she’s become the sixteenth most wealthy woman in the entire world. Always a star, even in her high school years, this picture doesn’t look unlike many of her recent modeling photographs.

Golden Globe winner Keira Knightley is an English actress whose passion for performance dominated her life since childhood. Knightley hired her first agent when she was six years old and remembers a “single-mindedness” about acting that kept her performing in amateur productions whenever she got the chance.

Singer-Songwriter Taylor Swift is still pretty young, earning her first platinum record at just 20 years old. Besides the blonde hair, her childhood picture next to a pony doesn’t look too much like today’s Grammy award winning beauty.

American actress Natalie Portman is not only one of the most beautiful women to ever live, but incredibly smart as well. She earned a degree in psychology at Harvard while completing her role in the Star Wars prequel trilogy, and claims to have smoked weed every day while doing so. The total package, Portman began her career in The Professional, where she starred as a young girl who becomes the companion of an aging hit man.

Scarlett Johansson is an American actress and musician who helped campaign for Barack Obama during the presidential election. Scarlett Johansson’s childhood picture looks pretty much exactly the same as her adult self, only with more childlike shyness in her expression.

Pictured above with Scarlett Johansson, American actress and model Jessica Biel hasn’t changed much. America watched her grow up on the family oriented television series 7th Heaven; Biel certainly looks much older today, but no less beautiful.

Rihanna began her recording career when she moved to the US from the Barbados at the age of sixteen. At her current age of 23, Rihanna has earned over ten chart topping Billboard hits. To non-Rihanna lovers, she’s best known for getting the shit kicked out of her by R&B performer Chris Brown. Who could punch a cute little face like that? Only a douchebag.

American actress Eliza Dushku began her career when she was just ten years old, and has appeared in countless movies and television shows since. The undeniably gorgeous Dushku says her roles in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel have provoked heaps of fan mail from prisoners on death row. “They write everything,” Dusku states, “disgusting things that you don’t even want to know about. . . It’s so creepy.”

Israeli supermodel Bar Rafaeli began modeling before she reached one year in age, appearing in a baby commercial. Rafaeli was guided by her mother, who was also a successful model. A need for braces caused her to take a modeling hiatus until she entered back into the game and earned multiple victories in Model of The Year competitions beginning when she was just fifteen.

Zooey Deschanel is America’s new sweetheart, playing the role of quirky love interest in Indie films like 500 Days of Summer. Deschanel recently began a musical project as well, composing one half of Indie pop duo She & Him. Deschanel doesn’t look much younger in this picture, but definitely has more of a cookie-cutter image than today’s personality driven Zooey.

20-year-old Hayden Panettiere, star of American TV series Heroes, is the same midget she’s always been at just five feet tall. As she rides what appears to be a zebra, Hayden’s face looks almost exactly the same as it does today. Hayden’s lesser known talent, singing, has earned her multiple voice acting roles in Disney cartoons and a Grammy nomination.

Taylor Momsen is a seventeen year old famous for her major role in the American television drama Gossip Girl. Despite the small age gap between her present and former self, the two pictures are most certainly another dichotomy on this list. Regarding the possibility that others see her as a role model, Momsen said, “To be honest, I don’t fucking care [about being a role model]. I didn’t get into this to be a role model. So I’m sorry if I’m influencing your kids in a way that you don’t like, but I can’t be responsible for their actions. I don’t care.”

Nicole as a kid is almost cuter than the plastic lipped Nicole of today. However, there was a time when Kidman was a sex icon, and everything she did radiated beauty. Kidman was born in Hawaii, but is of Australian descent. Her road to fame began when she appeared on a number of Australian sitcoms in the mid eighties.

Cute little Doutzen Kroes grew up to be a smoking hot international super model who has walked the runway for Gucci, Escada, Versace, Hugo Boss, and many other fashion icons. Kroes was born in the Netherlands and sent her photographs to a modeling agency shortly after graduating high school.

One of the traits Jena Malone has retained from her childhood is her adorable awkwardness. Lanky but beautiful, Malone was the cuteness factor in the 2001 indie film Donnie Darko. Besides multiple on screen roles, Malone also has a band called Jena Malone and Her Bloodstains.

Damn, Megan Fox! What a unibrow on that girl. At least she’s pretty much the hottest woman on the planet right now. She could frame this picture above her bed and laugh about it with everyone she knows — without caring even a little bit. Fox, famous for her roles in Transformers and Jennifer’s Body, has a true ugly-ducking-to-swan story.

Adriana Lima is another international supermodel famous for her role as a Victoria’s Secret Angel. Multi-lingual Brazilian beauty Lima says she didn’t have her fist kiss until she was 17 years old, attributing the late start to her shyness around boys. Unlike most celebrities, Lima is public about her strong religious beliefs and choice to remain celibate until marriage.

Russian actress Mila Kunis’ childhood photo makes her look more 90s-esque than a young teenage girl; her face looks almost exactly the same today. Once the unobtainable prom-queen type of gal, Kunis grew up to become an unobtainable blockbuster star of every man’s dreams.

Katy Perry is undoubtedly a total cutie in her childhood pic, but her short blonde locks and high school vibe is a far stretch from today’s risque image of the pop idol. Perry, who grew up in a religious household where she listened strictly to gospel music, abandoned her clean cut look for hits like “I Kissed a Girl” and a whole lot of cleavage.
Unfortunate Unsexy Bonus

Who knew that the sweet, button nosed girl on the left would turn into the raging crack addict on the right? Multi-platinum artist Amy Winehouse grew up singing in jazz bands, but was always somewhat eccentric — she formed a short-lived rap duo as an adolescent and was kicked out of junior high for piercing her nose. In adulthood, Winehouse spiraled out of control after success brought her enough money to buy all the drugs and booze her little heart desired.

Most of our favorite celebrities are smokin’ hot babes that are almost impossible to look away from, but they weren’t always gorgeous starlets with ridiculously amazing bodies. Whether performing in children’s competitions or simply attending the local school, every one of these Hollywood lovelies had to start out somewhere — as a kid. Some of them were super cute, while others may shock you with a unibrow or goofy smile delusive of the sexy celeb they would become later in life. Here’s a look at 34 stars long before they became delectable babes and one unfortunate bonus.
