2 years ago

Breathtaking photos of celebrities and their perfect beach bodies are all over the Internet. Sometimes it can be really frustrating, and it’s hard not to feel a little bit envious. However, not everyone in Hollywood was born extremely fit. Some of our favorite actors and singers looked completely different from Hollywood’s beauty standards at one time.

Bright Side would like to show you some of the most amazing celebrity transformations.

1. Adele

It’s hard not to notice that Adele got rid of a few extra pounds since 2008, even though she has never shared how much weight she lost. The singer says that she did it for her personal happiness and not to comply with beauty standards. Adele completely cut out sugar from her diet.
