Before They Were Famous

A lot of you may not know this, but I am going to be extremely famous one day.

Perhaps as a movie star. Perhaps as a rock star. Or, perhaps as a youtube video phenomenon. I'm not sure yet.

Some of you may be shocked because you didn't know I was striving for such a heightened goal. Others of you may be shocked simply because you thought I was already famous. Am I right?

I don't want you all to worry. When I become a SUPERSTAR, I will definitely remember who my real friends are. You can still write me and I'll respond. I might even send you tickets to my big show or movie premiere or whatever. I'll still be ME.

Anyways, in light of my revelation, I thought I would share with you some exciting photos: what celebrities looked like before they were famous. Yay?

We all know what I look like now, in my pre-fame years:



I'm such hot stuff now, I can't even imagine what I'm going to look like once my high-profile hair stylist and famous makeup artist get their hands on me.

Probably something like this:



(But that's just a modest guess).

Anyways, on to the stars!


Ashley Greene



Before she was a bad ass vampire in the Twilight series, Ashley was simply the hottest girl at her high school. With this school photo, it's no wonder the Florida beauty queen quickly rose to stardom.




Megan Fox



Before Megan turned herself into a Hollywood sexpot, she was just a goofy-looking Catholic schoolgirl from Tennessee. Do you like her unibrow?




Taylor Lautner



Better bod, same boyish charm. Smouldering glances were Taylor's speciality even before he hit puberty.




Brad Pitt



Nothing says sex symbol more than Brad Pitt in the late 1980s.




Jon Hamm



Before he was the sexy, mysterious Don Draper, the Mad Men actor was the star of his Missouri high school's football team. Um, yummy!



And finally...


Katy Perry



Before she sang about kissing girls, Katy Perry was known as Katy Hudson, a Christian singer inspired by God. A far cry from the raven-haired seductress we know today, huh?





So, what do you think?

Taylor Lautner has always looked really, really odd to me. Just like that other dude from Twilight. I can't even remember his name he's so weird looking.

It's probably why I've never cared about those movies.

Leia said...

Wait, you're not already a famous superstar?! :P

I loved this. Megan Fox's picture really surprised me! And Don Draper was sooo sexy as a high school footballer ;)

Never forget us little people, you star you ;)
Jon Hamm just oozes sexiness no matter what. If I went to high school with him, I'd be crushin' hard. On the daily.

I am not surprised at all. I always knew you would become famous and I'm so pleased that you will still remember me and still be my friend. How exciting! This is such an interesting post. Megan Fox WOW I simply cannot believe the change. Its interesting to hear about Katy Perry. I knew a bit about that before.

Tights Lover said...

Count me among those who thought you were already famous!

The Megan Fox pic definitely surprised me the most...aside, I guess from the fact that Katy Perry sang christian music.

The Brad Pitt pic just made me laugh really hard...

Aw, how fun!

Remedy Rouge said...

Great post. Love the way you deliver the story.

Just like all other commercial products, a superstar is a product to the management company and somehow they are twisted and become someone who they would never be if they weren't a star.

The society has imposed some unwritten criteria for people who want to be a star. And the result can be good, or bad, it always depends on the star itself.
