Yearbook photo day is always a harrowing amalgamation of spontaneous acne breakouts, untameable hair and unflattering lighting, but even the shiniest stars in Hollywood have been there too.

Who fared best under the threatening glow of the soft light back in their school days? There's only one way to find out...

Robert Downey Jr.

Robert Downey really was a junior once upon a time. It seems that it was bleeding edge fashion to wear the pelt of a slaughtered beaver as a toupée in the late 70's. Who knew! He's not balding now though, so we know who got the last laugh!

Megan Fox might be a mega celebrity now, but she wasn't above the influence of the iconic 'Rachel' haircut when she was at high school. We all make mistakes, Megan.

Judging by the smug look on his face, Ben Affleck already felt like Batman during his yearbook days.

The Brits don't do yearbooks (who knew!) but here's a snap of a beaming Robert Pattinson in his school uniform. School must be better in England...

This is a poignant one. Who knew a lad who was voted 'Least Likely to Succeed' in his yearbook would become the comic legend of our time? You showed them, Robin!

Jennifer Lawrence

Hands up if you're surprised that JLaw was voted 'Most Chatty' in her yearbook? Yep, I thought not.

Norman Reedus might play a redneck with a heart of gold in The Walking Dead, but he looks like the real deal in his yearbook photo. Those highlights!

Ian Somerhalder

18-year-old Ian Somerhalder is as cute as a ball-pit full of kittens, but he hadn't quite mastered his signature smirk.

Vin Diesel

Vin Diesel was clearly too cool for school back in the day, but this sharp dresser has totally earned a place on this list with that cocked eyebrow!

Mila Kunis

Mila Kunis has clearly discovered GHDs since her school days, but that dazzling smile has been there since day dot.
