10 Celebrities That Were Ugly When Young

When we look at glamorous pictures of our favourite celebrities, it can be hard to imagine them as anything less than perfect, but have you ever considered what some one those celebrities looked like when they were children? You will be shocked at the differences between how they looked then and their appearance now…

1. George Clooney

We’ve all swooned over Mr. Clooney as some point in our lives, whether that be as a gorgeous, life-saving Doctor in E.R., or a suave, intelligent con-artist in the Ocean’s series. To top it off, he is involved in life-saving humanitarian work; the Not On Our Watch Project, which is an organisation that attempts to prevent mass atrocities across the globe. Eat your heart out ladies!

2. Zac Efron

There are quite a few adoring teenage girls that like Zac Efron, but you can clearly see he’s had some cosmetic surgery on his nose and teeth.

You can see more on this and other successful celebrity surgeries in our article 10 Celebrity Plastic Surgery Procedures That Went Well.

3. Victoria Beckham

A lot of Victoria Beckham’s now stunning looks came from a surgeons knife and not from her parents genes. She’s had some major work on her teeth, nose, breast implants and a few other procedures for sure.

4. Matthew Lewis

If someone showed you a picture of this guy and told you he was Neville Longbottom, you’d laugh out loud. ‘There’s no way that this guys, with a chiselled body and a perfect jawline, could ever be that dorky kid from Hogwarts’ you’d say. But you would be wrong! Matthew is the perfect example of a celebrity who has dramatically grown into their looks. He recently did a photo shoot which shows off his flawless body and smouldering good looks. Definitely enough to get us hot under the collar.

5. Taylor Swift

She has the voice of an angel and a face to match. Capturing the hearts of millions around the world, Taylor’s music career is flourishing. Gone are the days when she had frizzy hair and sang acoustic country songs about love and heartbreak. Now, everyone knows her name and she inspires teenage girls everywhere. She is the youngest woman to ever make it onto Forbes World’s 100 Most Powerful Women List.

6. Brad Pitt

What a transformation! From dorky kid with a repulsive bowl hair-cut, to international heart throb. Brad makes every girl (and even men) weak at the knees. Yet, he’s known for his fantastic acting skills as much as for his handsome face. He’s starred in some ground-breaking films, including Inglourious Basterds (2009) and Fight Club (1999). When he split from Jennifer Aniston, we thought we could never forgive him. But those dreamy blue eyes and sparkling smile just made us melt and all was forgotten.

7. Ryan Seacrest

What happened here?! Seacrest is an American radio personality, television host, and looks absolutely nothing like he did when he was a kid. Gone are those hideous glasses and braces, replaced by a quirky charm and a stunning smile, guaranteed to get hearts racing.

8. Megan Fox

Best known for her role in Transformers (2007) and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009), Megan Fox is a modern female sex symbol. But if you glance back to her early years, she looked like every other awkward teenage girl who hadn’t quite reached her full potential. She began her acting career in 2001 and since then has gone on to win numerous awards, including Choice Female Hottie and Choice Summer Movie Star Female at the Teen Choice Awards.

9. Kate Hudson

Although now a gorgeous blonde bomb-shell, Kate Hudson wasn’t too pretty as a child. She became famous in 2000 after playing the part of Penny Lane in Almost Famous (2000), for which she won a Golden Globe. Since then, she has been renowned for her glamorous look, stunning everyone on the red carpet. Who’d of thought it?


10. Angelina Jolie

Angelina was always bullied at school for her looks. Now, she is nothing less than beautiful. Although most people know only her through her relationship with Brad Pitt and her stunning good looks, Angelina is an incredible woman in her own right. She showed her bravery after undergoing a double mastectomy because she tested positive for a gene linked to breast and ovarian cancer. She has a number of impressive accolades, also appearing on the Queen’s Birthday Honours list, amongst charity workers, teachers and civil servants.
