it wasn’t always bright lights and red carpets for some of our favorite stars — even they had to do the odd job or two before becoming famous. Unsurprisingly, a lot of celebrities spent time working in the food industry to make ends meet, but there’s also a handful who took really strange work opportunities in their younger years.
Lady Gaga 2006-It’s like seeing Tom Riddle before he turned into Voldemort.
Russell Brand-At school, Brand sought attention through painful and gross stunts, including eating ants. One teacher described his behavior as “acting the fool” and called him a “waste of space.” He got kicked out of a boarding school for having girls in his room.
Ok, so no one can deny the fact that Megan Fox has had countless amounts of plastic surgery to look the way she does now, but it’s refreshing to see a photo of her before she became famous and to realize that even this Hollywood hottie wasn’t always so glamorous. The granny cardigan, the 90s choker, and that sunburn?! Oh Megan Fox, what were you thinking?
Not so Posh Spice during adolescence, were you Victoria? These two photographs couldn’t look more different, and it’s a struggle to even pick out one similarity! That 90s hair, the messy fringe and the one strand that didn’t quite make it into the ponytail? Victoria Beckham has certainly made the transition from ugly duckling to stylish swan.
It’s pretty rare to find a photograph of Mariyln Manson prior to his gothic / heavily-applied makeup days, so we cannot help but be shocked at his “before” picture. What a major transformation! From a messy mullet to sleek and shiny hair, this is one “ugly duckling” that blossomed into a more stylish (and strange) swan.
