Fans fall in love with celebrities and those unforgettably famous faces. However, those faces sometimes change in wild ways as time goes on.
Wondering which celebrities look completely different from when you first laid eyes on them? Keep reading to find out!
Lil Kim’s face became famous when she was a teenager and started rapping. And fans all over the world fell in love with how she looked as much as they fell in love with the fresh beats she laid down.
Her famous face has changed a lot over the years, but her sense of style has stayed the same! While Lil Kim has faced accusations of taking plastic surgery too far, she remains a musical trailblazer for all the pop acts that followed her. She knew how to rock a purple wig long before Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj came along.
With his leading man looks, Mickey Rourke broke out as a star in the ’80s in films like Diner and Nine ½ Weeks. However, in the ’90s, he took a break from acting to foray into professional boxing for a few years before making his Hollywood comeback in 2005 with Sin City.
Life in the ring changes a man, and Rourke is no exception. He looks very different now, but this helped him gain roles in films such as Iron Man 2 and The Wrestler, for which he earned an Oscar nomination.
Amanda Bynes shot to fame as a child on Nickelodeon’s All That and went on to star in hit films like What a Girl Wants and She’s the Man. Sadly, like many child stars, Bynes went through a difficult transition into adulthood, dealing with substance abuse, arrests, and mental health issues resulting in hospital stays. She effectively retired from acting in 2010 and has been mostly out of the spotlight since then.
However, Bynes seems to have turned her life around in recent years. She announced she has been sober since 2014 and even obtained a college degree in 2018. Bynes could make her Hollywood comeback any day now!
Nothing makes us feel as old as seeing young Leonardo Dicaprio. In early roles like Romeo + Juliet and Titanic, his boyish looks and charm hid an amazing acting talent.
Older, wiser, and “beardier,” Leo has become a household name. And with an Oscar finally under his belt for The Revenant, no one doubts his supreme skills as an actor. These days, the actor seems to focus on artistic passion projects rather than standard blockbuster fare.
Most of us first saw Eddie Furlong in Terminator 2. There, he played young John Connor, trying to balance survival in the here and now with his future as a leader of the human resistance against cyborg attacks.
Furlong has been acting in smaller roles for many years now, though he now looks very different. In fact, he is now much more believably as a gruff action hero, and we wonder if we’ll see adult Furlong fighting cyborgs sometime in the future!
In 2004, Lindsay Lohan dazzled as an innocent beauty in Mean Girls. And this film seemed to forecast a long career of ambitious Hollywood roles.
Partying and other wild lifestyle choices have caught up with Lohan, and the job offers seemingly dried up. However, we think she is due for a Robert Downey Jr.-style comeback that will redefine the next half of her career.
Harry Potter is a worldwide phenomenon, and Daniel Radcliffe is at the heart of it as the title character. It’s tough to remember how young he was when he took his first steps into the wizarding world.
Many child actors get typecast as their famous characters and then have trouble getting other work. This was not the case for Daniel Radcliffe, who used his maturity as an actor to land a number of challenging roles both on the screen and on the stage, including Broadway’s How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
Comedy fans first fell in love with Chris Pratt when he played Andy, the bumbling and dowdy forerunner of the “dad bod” on Parks and Recreation. No one could have expected his transformation into an action movie star!
Ahead of films like Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World, Chris Pratt got insanely buff. He went from “cute dad bod” guy to “fitness goals” practically overnight.
As a young musician, Ozzy Osbourne was a bit of a hellraiser, to say the least. In addition to his unforgettable music, he was known for tales of onstage antics, including biting the head off a bat during a performance!
Age and maturity eventually get everyone, including rockstars like Ozzy. He’s known to younger generations more for yelling “Sharon” on reality TV than for dazzling and disgusting fans of his music from a stage.
Goldie Hawn is a Hollywood icon, inspiring generations of fans. And this shocking black-and-white photo shows her as a young ingénue with an entire life and career ahead of her.
Now a Hollywood legend with a lifetime of unforgettable comedic roles including Private Benjamin and First Wives Club, Goldie Hawn still shines with regal beauty and grace. And we think her best performances may still be ahead of her.
