Photos of celebrities looking perfectly put together and downright glamorous are positively omnipresent in our culture. So it’s sometimes nice to have proof that these celebrities too were once young, awkward, and astoundingly normal — or at least beholden to questionable fashion trends of decades past.

Whether it was the outrageous 1980s haircut Amy Poehler once sported or the hippie look you didn’t know Hillary Clinton could pull off, photos of celebrities before they were famous prove that your favorite famous people didn’t always look quite like you’d think in the days before they hit it big.

For one, who would’ve ever suspected that a certain astrophysicist was once a muscular athlete, a self-proclaimed “nerd who could kick your butt.” And who would’ve thought that a future “Sexiest Man Alive” would leave behind one of the dorkiest yearbook photos you’ve ever seen.

So take some time to enjoy browsing through this gallery of vintage photos of celebrities before they were famous. From the cute to the awkward to the impossibly cool, these images are sure to surprise.
