Celebrities Share Old Headshots In Honor Of #OldHeadshotDay


If you don’t know too many showbusiness types, first of all, lucky you. But second, you might not have heard about #OldHeadShotDay. About a week ago, actors and former actors participated in a meme by sharing their old headshots. Similar to non-actors sharing old yearbook photos, posting an old headshot is a way to reflect on how far you’ve come, and have a laugh at your former self. “OMG, look at my frosted tips/feathered bangs/pronounced goiter!”, people would say.

Soon, celebrities began participating in the meme. Knowing how much we idolize famous people, you might be surprised to learn that their old headshots are just as embarrassing as everyone else’s. Bored Panda has compiled the old headshots of the rich and famous, and now you can join in on the cringe-fest.
