21 Popular Stars Like You’ve Never Seen Them Before

5 years ago

It’s really something when you have the chance to discover another side of your favorite Hollywood stars. We get to know most of our beloved actors and singers as adults and it’s surprising to see rare photos of them as children or teenagers.

Whether they share their precious moments on their personal social media pages or a family member leaks their photo-treasure, the feeling of nostalgia can occur with just one glance.

Bright Side gathered a collection of such pictures that will make you feel like you’re turning the pages of an old photo album at your parents’ house, but with a little celebrity fame sprinkled in.

1. Maisie Williams wasn’t always the hardcore Arya Stark.

2. Sean Bean, who played Father Ned Stark, was a rebellious young man once.

3. Neil Patrick Harris used to be the talented Doogie Howser, M.D. during his teen years.

4. Teens must’ve had a crush on the young Ryan Gosling.
