It’s funny how some celebrity transformations over the years have been so dramatic, you can hardly recognize your favorite stars from the awkward youngsters they once were. They’re effortlessly glamorous now, so it’s easy to forget that many Hollywood icons were once just doe-eyed young students or regular-looking teens!
Take for example, George Clooney. He may be a heartthrob now, but he didn’t always have that signature charm and style. Sporting a bowl haircut and square-framed glasses that his family once called an experiment that “didn’t work out,” Clooney’s younger self is a far cry from the handsome star he is today.
Pop star Gwen Stefani as a teen was also quite different from her current trendy look. In her earlier years, the now 47-year-old can be seen donning a simple striped T-shirt and minimal makeup. The difference is striking, but Gwen still proves she’s beautiful at any age.
While we just can’t get enough of these mind-boggling transformations, George Clooney and Gwen Stefani aren’t the only stars to look significantly different from when they were teenagers. Would you believe that Shania Twain once had gapped teeth, or that fellow country crooner Miranda Lambert is naturally a brunette? Well, we’ve got the images to prove it.
