In part one of this series (Click here to go to Part 1) we looked at how a few celebrities looked in their younger years before they made it big. It was kind of inspiring since it was obvious that most were pretty average looking and evolved into the glitterazzi we all know and love today.
This batch is no different except we threw in a few that were pretty bright eyed and fresh looking in their youth before being run over by the steamroller known as age. Once again it is inspiring to know that celebrities are just like us. Enjoy.
Growing up in the 70s, who didn’t want to be John Travolta? Growing up in the 2000’s nobody wants to be John Travolta. Okay that was a bit harsh……. he’s still cool and takes on pretty daring roles. Gotta love Barbarino.
I’m still amazed she was actually a Bond girl. She’s looking pretty thin lately – a bit too thin which tends to be a wee bit off putting but she still has her moments on Desperate Housewives where she’s almost attractive…….almost.
Michelle is stunning and was pretty darn cute when she was younger as well. She had that all American girl look and grew up to be one of the sexiest Hollywood villains ever. She is Catwoman. Grrrooowl! (I digress)
I’d say something bad about her except for two things – first, she kind of scares me and could probably take me in a fight (look at those biceps!) and secondly she’s still freakin’ awesome. Her body of work (and body) have pretty much spoken for themselves over the years but she could skip a few workouts and pop a couple of glazed donuts once in a while.
Wow – what to say? George is the embodiment of every bad grade school picture ever taken but thankfully that picture provides hope for the countless size 8 bowl haircut wearing geeks everywhere – you too can grow up to look like George Clooney……..though not likely.
Continuing where we left off from Part 1, lets continue our look at how some celebrities looked when they were younger. In some cases you can see they’ve aged gracefully, others – not so much. You can also tell which have a team of plastic surgeons on their payrolls. I’ll leave it up to you to determine which group each star falls into.
As I mentioned in my original post, if you invest thousands of dollars on cosmetic surgery, work out all day and have an army of personal trainers and private chefs cooking succulent, low carb meals – you better be tight abbed, ripped with buns of steel, a perfect complexion, perky breasts that can repel shrapnel and flowing, shiny hair that can cause rainbows to spontaneously appear when you walk into a room………….. just sayin’.
What goes better with pasty white skin than red curly hair? How about a tan? She’s obviously very pretty but get out in the sun once in a while – it won’t kill you. It’s not like it gives you cancer……….oh wait – nevermind.

Ok seriously, has this girl ever looked good? How does she snag all the beauty product endorsements? How does she continue to get roles? How does she not get hunted down by zombie fearing citizens? I’m not saying I’m God’s gift to the opposite sex, but I’m pretty damn sure if I put on a dress and shaved my head I’d still be getting hit on more than her. Not that I’d really want to test that theory, but you get the point.
One thing is certain, Kiefer knew how to rock the 70s porno stache back in the day. Jack Bauer would probably have killed porno stached Kiefer if he ever ran into him since he looks kind of suspicious and creepy, but then again that’s more than enough for Jack to go all Rambo on you.
Kylie certainly looks a lot different than she did in 1987. Looking at her, it seems pretty obvious where Pete Burns from Dead or Alive gets his inspiration from when he sees his plastic surgeon. Too bad his doctor sucks in a fierce way.
Before Georgie Boy was getting caught in men’s rooms doing naughty things with undercover cops, George Michael made all the ladies scream as one half of Wham! Safe to say that George, like his music, is looking (and sounding) better with age.
It’s always cool to see what celebrities looked like when they were younger and what they look like now for a couple of reasons. Not only does it “humanize” them in terms of making them look more like everyday people you come across in daily life, but you see that often times they were very average looking in their younger years but are now quite attractive.
It’s kind of inspiring and makes you think that one day, you too may be better looking and more attractive as well. Especially if you invest thousands of dollars in plastic surgery, workout for the better part of the day, have a personal trainer, a personal dietician, and personal assistants that can take care of things for you while you workout – like take your kids to soccer practice.
Looking like a little cutie in 1988 – no sign that she’d grow up to be the homewrecker that she is although since she bagged Brad Pitt, somehow she gets a pass from scorn. Hmmmmmm.
Just as good looking today as he did in 1987. Funny how when Billy Bob Thorten split with his wife to be with Angelina Jolie he was labelled a pig and a scoundrel. Mr. Pitt does it and all the woman high five each other. Double standard? Just sayin’…….
I think Halle Berry looked great in 1986 and then every year after. Though she’s been known to wear a gold belt from time to time, she hasn’t worn a leotard with USA printed on it for a while.
One word – “The Hoff”
Considering the macho roles he’s had plus the fact he played the part of a life guard for a while, you’d think back in 1980 he would have spent a little more time at the gym trying to bulk up a bit with some muscle rather than all that time blowdrying his hair.
Miss Jackson if you’re nasty. Cute as a button in 1984 and sexy as hell today. Anyone remember her on Good Times ?
Clearly a Burt Reynolds fan in 1981, the future James Bond seemed to get more suave and good looking as he aged. Clearly couldn’t afford a stylist in early ’80s .
