Meet Hollywood Stars Before They were Famous

                                               Then                                         Now

Kate Middleton
We'll start with the Duchess!
Fit to be queen! Before she was the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton was just your typical toddler destined for royalty.
Here, she's seen pictured as a three-year-old on holiday in Britain's Lake District.

                                                Then                                      Now
Rihanna
Although she's one of Hollywood's hottest stars, but Rihanna was once an awkward-looking pre-teen just like the rest of us.
Here, the Grammy Award-winning singer is pictured at a carnival in Barbados at age 13.


                                                 Then                                         Now
Jay-Z
He was a true star in the making, rapper Jay-Z whose real name is Shawn Carter was photographed proudly sporting his cap and gown in an early graduation photo.


                                                 Then                                          Now
Brad Pitt
This Brad's picture is ridiculous!
It's hard to believe Brad Pitt was ever a reject.
The actor smiles for a team photo with his childhood basketball squad, the Cherokee Rejects, in 1977.


                                                  Then                                         Now
Dolly Parton
It may seem strange to think of Dolly Parton as the wholesome girl-next-door type, but the photo above, taken in 1955 when she was 9-years-old, proves the country superstar was just that.
Today, the 67-year-old singer and songwriter is still making music, having released her most recent album, "Better Day," in June 2011.


                                               Then                                          After
Jimi Hendrix
Prior his rock star status, Jimi Hendrix boasted a much more polished look.
The famous guitarist, seen sporting a headband and psychedelically patterned shirt in a photo dated 1970, favored a more dapper suit and tie for a portrait taken in 1965.



                                                 Then                                         After
Buddy Holly
10-year-old Buddy Holly smiles for the camera in 1946, just a few years before shooting to rock and roll fame in the 1950s.


                                                   Then                                        After
Rod Stewart
We guess Rod Stewart has always had a thing for bad hair.
The singer, wore a pink suit during a performance at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas in 2011, has the exact same 'do he sported while playing guitar on the "Ready Steady Go!" television show in 1964.


                                              Then                                               After
Iggy Pop
Iggy Pop has always had a "lust for life"... and huge muscles, for that matter.
The 66-year-old singer first made his debut with his band, The Stooges, in 1968.


                                                  Then                                        After
Elvis Presley
A young Elvis Presley is barely recognizable without his signature black 'do in this photo, dated from the early 1940s.


                                                Before                                       After
Olivia Newton-John
Olivia Newton-John has come a long way since this pig-tailed portrait, taken in 1970.
Now 64, the blond singer has four Grammy awards under her belt and a well-established film career.


                                                  Then                                         Now
Emma Stone
She is super funny and looks funny in pictures too.
Already practicing for her close up, a young Emma Stone poses for a portrait taken while she was a student with The Valley Youth Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona.
Now 24, the actress has become a red carpet pro.


                                                   Then                                          Now
Angelina Jolie
If acting hadn't worked out for Angelina Jolie, the star definitely could have fallen back on a modeling career. Jolie, 37, looks like she's hardly aged a bit since the fashion shots were taken of her as a teenager.


                                 Then                                           Now
Carolyn Murphy
Carolyn Murphy is having an 80s flashback.
"Age 15. Ugh. I had used Sun In that summer, which turned my hair orange," the American model and actress shares with V Magazine. "Loved my Swatch watch and hoop earrings — so 80s!"


                                                 Then                                            Now
Doutzen Kroes
She's known for being one of the hottest models in the business, but before Doutzen Kroes ever stepped foot down a runway the Dutch beauty had dreams of appearing on stage.
"I was even ambitious enough to be in a play," says the blond stunner, who shared this photo of herself with the July issue of V Magazine, out on newsstands July 18.


                                                 Before                                         After
Catherine McNeil
Australian fashion model Catherine McNeil has gone from bunny ears to catwalk couture.
"I was 12 in this pic," the 24-year-old bombshell tells V Magazine. "I remember I was watching Big Brother."
The brunette beauty has certainly come a long way since then, modeling for the likes of Prada, Givenchy and Viktor and Rolf.


                                                 Before                                     After
Megan Fox
Just like fine wine, Megan Fox only got better with age.
Poking fun at her younger years, the former "Transformers" star and Hollywood sex symbol posted photographs to Facebook of herself from the mid '90s.
"Say hello to my 12 year old self," the actress wrote, sharing an image of herself wearing a white sweater with a painful-looking sunburn on her face and braces.


                                                   Then                                       Now
Kate Upton
She's a natural!
Young Kate Upton shows she knows how to strike a pose long before she ever graced the cover of Sports Illustrated in a bikini.


                                                Then                                              Now
Bethenny Frankel
Before she ever whipped up a single Skinnygirl margarita, reality star and entrepreneur Bethenny Frankel was working behind the scenes as a production assistant on "Saved by the Bell."
"Everybody starts somewhere," Frankel tweeted, posting a photo of her much younger self cozying up next to Dustin Diamond a.k.a Screech on the set of the popular 90s show.


                                                 Then                                          Now
Dree Hemingway
Dree Hemingway has always had a thing for fashion.
"I use to play dress up at my grandparents' house," the blond model tells V Magazine.
"That was a blanket that looked like prime wedding dress material. I'd dress up in some random thing around the house, then drink tea with milk and lots of sugar and grilled cheese finger sandwiches, and that was that."


                                                  Before                                       Now
Ricky Martin
Before he was livin' la vida loca as an internationally known pop star, Ricky Martin was a member of Puerto Rican boy band Menudo in the 1980s.
Most recently, the singer, 41, could be seen lighting up the stage on Broadway, where he starred in "Evita."


                                                  Before                                       After
John Lennon
Long before he was a Beatle, John Lennon was just a young boy in a school cap and uniform.
This school portrait (l.) was taken in 1948, when the legendary musician was just eight years old.


                                                  Before                                       After
Boy George
Even in the 1980s, English singer Boy George had a taste for theatrics ... and heavy eye makeup.
Born in 1961 as George Alan O'Dowd, he is best known for his career as a musician and DJ throughout the late 80s and 90s.


                                                  Then                                        Now
Celine Dion
She may have skyrocketed to fame with the release of her 1990 album, "Unison," but Celine Dion's voice only seems to get stronger with age.
The Canadian singer, 45, has sold more than 200 million albums worldwide.


                                                  Then                                        Now
Ricky Gervais
Comedian Ricky Gervais always has us laughing, and this photo from his younger days is no exception.


                                         Before Dread                                     After
Bob Marley
Can you believe Bob Marley was once so clean cut? A photo taken in 1970 (L) shows the Jamaican singer without his signature dreadlocks looking sharp in a suit.


                                               Before                                          After
Frank Sinatra
Frank Sinatra wasn't always "Old Blue Eyes."
A rare portrait of the legendary singer and actor, taken of him on the day of his First Holy Communion in 1924, shows him as a wide-eyed young boy.


                                                 Then                                            Now
Lea Michele
Lea Michele must have been especially "Glee"-ful as a kid.
The 25-year-old singer got her start as a child actress on Broadway, appearing in "Ragtime" and "Les Miserables."

There you have it.
