Our favorite celebs have gotten older in front of our very eyes as we've followed their careers growing up. Have you ever wondered how these famous faces looked before their careers really soared?

It's time to go down memory lane, to a time before the hair stylists and make-up artists had preened our favorite movie stars to perfection. Will you be able to recognise the stars as their younger selves?

16. Angelina Jolie

Young Angelina stole the show at her eighth grade graduation ball with her outfit.

15. Reese Witherspoon

“On the set of my second movie ever, Wildflower''.(1991)

14. Sarah Jessica Parker

As a child Sarah already had her Hollywood smile nailed.

13. Ben Stiller

As a kid Ben had a real mane of hair.

12. Simon Helberg

Are you seeing double?

11. Emma Watson

Here's young Emma Watson back in 2001 when she made her first (of many) red carpet appearances. The Harry Potter star was only 11 at the time.

10. Meryl Streep

This timeless actress has always looked super flawless.

9. Rob Schneider

The bunny in the background looks like the stuff nightmares are spun from.

I can't tell if this taxidermy fluffcat is traumatised or surprised to meet RDJ! Either way, that's one hell of a reaction. This photo is from the actor's early days on stage.

7. Johnny Depp

Johnny doesn't even look the slightest bit phased to be hanging out on a train track for this snap.

6. Adam Sandler

Adam sure looked like a fun kid to be around judging from this photo.

5. Harrison Ford

The most stylish kid on the block.

4. Jim Carey

How cute was little Jim Carey!

Aw, Robin we miss you!

2. George Clooney
