Frankly, I’m super glad to not have grown up in a digital age – my awkward stage and all of those glorious (read: hideous) 80’s and 90’s fashion trends are much more likely to stay in the past where they they belong. Which is to say, someone would have to dig up actual photos of me in yearbooks or bribe them off my friends or parents in order to see them.
Which is exactly how we’re getting most of these great little peeks into the not-so-dissimilar pasts of these 10 celebs. Sorry, guys. You’re famous, so you don’t get to hide that hair and glasses.
#10. Steve Jobs
In his middle school electronics class, y’all. That hair.
#9. Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham
Back in their carefree University days.
Girlfriend was an Army cadet. Respect.
#7. Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson
He was way bigger than any 15-year-old boy at my high school.
#6. Coco Chanel
The year before she opened her first hat store.
#5. Steve Buscemi
He started life as a young firefighter with really good hair, y’all.
#4. Princess Diana
The future royal with her pony, which I totally want to pet.
#3. Marilyn Monroe
This was when she was just Norma Jean Baker taking a selfie in a photo booth.
#2. Elon Musk
Who would have guessed this down-home 17-year-old would revolutionize the world?
#1. Mark Zuckerberg
Ah, the good old days when Facebook was still The Facebook and Zuckerberg had no idea what was coming for him.
To be real though, he’s not that much older now…
