Photo Album: Celebrity Photos Before Fame
Laura Lee - April 14, 2019

Our favorite famous faces become almost unrecognizable when we see what they looked like before Hollywood got a hold of them. These baby-faced future stars were only dreaming of fame when these photos were captured. Here are some of the best photos taken of celebrities when they were young and before they were famous.

The French model and actress rose to fame throughout the 1960s and 1970s. She is pictured above as a young and aspiring entertainer. She would go on to have a successful career in music, as well. One of her most famous quotes: “A photograph can be an instant of life captured for eternity that will never cease looking back at you.”

Photographer Daniel Sorine happened to be shooting in Central Park in New York City one afternoon. Years later when he was looking back through photographs, he realized he captured then up-and-coming comedian and actor Robin Williams as a mime.

Pamela Anderson lets her natural beauty shine through in this incredible early modeling photo. This was before her transition to Hollywood (and before her many surgical enhancement procedures). She went on to model for Playboy and star in the beach drama Baywatch.

The young astrophysicist captures a selfie prior to the days of smartphones and front-facing cameras. Tyson and his family grew up in the Bronx neighborhood of New York, and he enjoyed a love of science and discovery from a very young age. He is regarded as one of the brightest minds and influential thinkers of all time.
