Mugshots are for criminals and headshots are for celebrities. See how innocent and gorgeous they used to be.
If you think being a celebrity is easy as making your kid’s mac and cheese, well here’s a straight up fact. Before we ever see them on-screen and glossy front covers, they have undergone meticulous and endless struggles to make it big in tinseltown. Aside from their breathtaking acting, did you know that these celebrities need a good set of headshots just to get noticed and be casted? Headshots are an important step for celebrities to make it big in Hollywood.
Most of the photos are taken in black and white standard but it’s insane seeing how these stars have or have not changed at all through the years.
Here are the best celebrity headshots before they made a name for themselves:
1. Alexis Bledel
From the sweet Rory in Gilmore Girls to losing her sugary innocence in Sin City 2.
2. Kevin Spacey
Oh, looks like a promising matinee actor but we still prefer the ruthless and vengeful, Frank Underwood.
3. Robert Downey Jr.
He was the King of New Wave before he became Ironman.
4. Denzel Washington
He must be destined to be The Equalizer, just look at that perfectly symmetrical face.
5. Alec Baldwin
We do miss his cheek bones and those eyes are still damn sexy!
6. Angelina Jolie
Good looks: if you’re born with it, you just might have to bear it for the rest of your life. And, we’re downright jealous for your deistic genes.
7. Winona Ryder
We’re overjoyed you gave up Madeline’s hat!
8. Philip Seymour Hoffman
We miss PSH but I think we’re okay without the man bun. A face swap with Matt Damon maybe?
9. Sam Rockwell
With or without beard, you still rock my world!
10. Naomi Watts
It’s preposterous to call her the accident-prone actress but this pretty face has tricked death for a number of times- from being caught in a riptide in England and falling into a ditch in a set of her movie King Kong.
11. Chris Noth
This guy is as hot as ‘Sex and the City’
12. Whitney Houston
Proof why she made it big from singing solo in churches to an international audience.
13. Frances McDormand
Her first-rated performance made her one of the few actresses who was granted an Academy, Emmy, Grammy, and Tony Awards.
14. Jennifer Aniston
She really rocked that fringe and that hairstyle ever since.
15. Jennifer Lawrence
Her lucky charm? Her curls.
16. Kerry Washington
17. Kristen Stewart
Before she really knows how to smile until she became a vampire babe.
18. Will Arnett
19. Melissa McCarthy
She used to look like my freakish Science teacher! Thank God for blowers.
20. Channing Tatum
From one to next role, he’s still playing the hot guy in the block who has eyes to devour every woman’s soul. *Sigh.
Do you have anything to add on the list?
