Before They Were Famous: Can You Guess the Star From Their Childhood Snap? (GALLERY)


Before they were award-winning actors, chart-topping artists and cover-worthy models, these stars were just regular teenagers.

George Clooney and Brad Pitt weren't always Hollywood's leading hunks; Sandra Bullock and Charlize Theron weren't always garnering Academy Award accolades for their silver-screen performances; and Mariah Carey and Gwen Stefani weren't always burning up the music charts with their booming voices. In fact, they were kind of just like us regular folks back in the day.

Could you recognize these celebrities before they hit fame?

Celebuzz is bringing you a blast from the past with stars' school photos.

From Leonardo DiCaprio, Nick Lachey and Ben Affleck, to Michelle Pfieffer, Julia Roberts and Katie Holmes, Celebuzz has rounded up some of the best before-they-were-famous photos.

Take a gander at our gallery and test your IDing talents. Can you identify these actors based on early photos and a few hints?

Which is your favorite childhood photo? Sound off in comments.

    Wouldn't it be a hoot if Taylor and Charlize are related? You could put my eyes out, so I would never have to see anything less beauiful. Seriously, find a shot of Charlize from "Monster" (based on a true story) which won her a Best Actress Oscar.
