If you put aside all the wealth and fame and success, celebrities are almost like us… At least they were once kind of like us!
While they may now be amongst the world’s most recognisable names, every celebrity person had to start from somewhere. For most actors and actresses, each career begun with a single headshot photo.
Celebrities reminded us that they were once like us, trough the #OldHeadshotDay which started trending and scores of celebs took the opportunity to post pictures from their past on Twitter and Instagram.
From Reese Witherspoon’s sassy smile to Emma Watson’s pink beret, actors and actresses have managed to dig up some pretty impressive pictures.
We’re not sure when this movement was invented, but we have to admit, we’re loving these cute/cringeworthy throwbacks.
Let’s take a look at the old pictures from celebrities, trough #OldHeadshotDay:
Better late than never. Swipe left for my attempt at side ponies, attitude, and a bit of croquet. #oldheadshotday
#oldheadshotday #fbf. This was circa 2007. After @candiscayne made history and became the first openly trans actor to have a recurring role on a prime time TV show I said to myself this is our time. I went and got new headshots, committed to finding an agent and making my acting dreams come true. I got an agent who is now my manager. The next year I booked by first and second episodes of Law and Order and did the pilot for Bored to Death. Thank you Candis for making me believe it was possible. #TransIsBeautiful
