Check Out What 11 Gorgeous Hollywood Men Looked Like Before They Became Famous
In his childhood, Bruce Willis was very shy and he used to stutter. Actor and wrestler Dwayne Johnson suffered from being overweight. Every man from our article has their own story. Some of them just grew up and became mature, and some worked really hard to make their way from a not-so-popular guy to becoming truly cool. But all of them prove the simple point that you are not born a hero, but you can become one. A lot of willpower and hard work is behind every success story.
We at Bright Side couldn’t believe our eyes when we saw the tough Hollywood guys before they became famous and really attractive.
11. Dwayne Johnson
American wrestler and actor Dwayne Johnson is also known as The Rock. He was named the sexiest man of 2016 by People magazine. But Johnson didn’t always look like he does today. The actor is happy to share his childhood photos on his Instagram page and also memes that he posts with funny captions.
10. Ryan Gosling
After his role in The Notebook, Gosling won the hearts of female viewers around the entire world and became a Hollywood star. And he started his career at the age of 12, when he auditioned for the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse show. Then, he did several TV series for teenagers, including Young Hercules.
9. Jason Momoa
In his youth, Momoa worked as a model in Hawaii and he was very charming. But in his photos, it is hard to recognize Aquaman from the DC Universe of Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones. The famous scar on his left eyebrow, that makes him look even tougher, is the result of a bar fight when he was hit with a beer glass.
But this is not the only situation that influenced the way Momoa looks. Before the shooting started for Conan the Barbarian, the actor told his friend that his character would look more convincing if his nose were broken. Without even thinking, his friend hit him and broke his nose.
8. Jake Gyllenhaal
Jake Gyllenhaal has been in the movie industry since he was 11. This is why viewers might remember him as both a kid with an innocent look and an awkward teenager. Now, Jake is very charismatic, good-looking, and incredibly talented.
7. Bruce Willis
In his childhood, Bruce Willis used to stutter a lot. When he was nervous, he literally wasn’t able to speak. In order to beat this problem, he took part in an acting class. It was the stage that helped Willis beat his stuttering problem and become one of the coolest guys on the big screen.
6. Brad Pitt
This blonde-haired, blue-eyed handsome man with a charming smile looked very good when he was young. But over the years, Pitt became even more charismatic and mature. This is why he is regularly on the top of the charts of the most handsome men on the planet.
5. George Clooney
George Clooney is successful, rich, and famous. He has a beautiful wife and a lot of charm. But he hasn’t always been like that. In his childhood, Clooney suffered from Bell’s palsy. Half of his face was paralyzed, he wasn’t able to open one of his eyes. He was mocked by his classmates and they called him Frankenstein.
Fortunately, he managed to overcome this problem. And from the age of 21, he started going on many Hollywood auditions. But we think that silver hair looks much better on George, than his young dark curls did.
4. Justin Timberlake
Justin Timberlake, just like Ryan Gosling, started his career with the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse show when he was a child. After he finished his work on the show, at the age of 14, he formed a band together with a few other guys. Back then, he had curly hair. Now, he is 38 years old and he definitely looks better.
3. Robert Downey, Jr.
Robert Downey, Jr. is an actor who is extremely magnetic, elegant, and charismatic. He has been on the top of the sexiest men lists multiple times, but he hasn’t always looked like that. Despite his previous looks, he still managed to win Sarah Jessica Parker’s heart!
2. Chris Pratt
In his teenage years, the future actor that would eventually play the leading roles in Jurassic World, Passengers, and Guardians of the Galaxy, liked freestyle wrestling, even though he didn’t look the part of a wrestler. Later, he worked really hard on his appearance and body and today he looks amazing.
1. Keanu Reeves
In childhood, the future movie star was diagnosed with dyslexia — a reading disorder. This is why he was very shy. Reeves admits that he continues to struggle with these problems, but that hasn’t affected the fact that he still has millions of fans around the world.
