You think you know your celebs, but do you remember what they used to look like? Far from being the flawless stars they are today, check out this motley bunch of dodgy perms, crop tops and bad bleach jobs! Now, don't you feel just a little bit better?

Justin Timberlake has changed just a bit over the last 10 years. Most noticeably he has figured out how to tame his wild curls from his NSync days. JT sure knows how to rock a suit and tie now!


Frankie Bridge

Ah cropped tops and fluoro combat trousers, we remember them well! But we reckon Frankie Bridge (Frankie Sandford), who started out in spin-off pop group S Club Juniors, looks much more glam in her Saturdays incarnation. Here she is working pink beads on 2014’s Strictly Come Dancing.


Shane Lynch

Shane Lynch from Boyzone, you can’t say his style hasn’t evolved over the years! Gone is the dodgy bleached blond strip in his hair and shaved eyebrow and in its place a rather impressive hipster beard!

Child actress Anna Chlumsky known for the classic film My Girl has grown into a real beauty. Anna took some time away from acting, but reappeared on our screens in 2012 playing Amy Brookheimer on hit show Veep.

We all know Mark Paul Gosselaar as blonde bouffanted schemer Zac Morris from Saved By The Bell but hellooo look at him now! More recently starred as attorney Peter Bash in the series Franklin and Bash. Sadly the show has been cancelled, but we hope to see Gosselaar back on our screens soon!

Kaley Cuoco Sweeting, who plays Penny in the Big Bang Theory, wasn’t always so sleek and groomed.

HmmBop, who could forget the long flowing locks of the Hanson brothers! The hair may have been chopped but Issac, Taylor and Zac are still making music together.


Hannah Spearritt

Hannah Spearritt, member of the pop group S Club 7 has sure changed since her days of crop tops, top knots and dodgy eye shadow! Hannah became a successful actress, playing Abby Maitland in the hit show Primeval, and is now taking part in the reunion tour with the other members of S Club 7.


Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Joseph Gordon-Levitt became a household name in 1996 playing geeky alien Tommy Solomon on 3rd Rock from the Sun. He’s now a successful actor and director in his own right, and quite a cutie too!


Katie Holmes

Katie Holmes doesn’t look like she’s aged much since her days on Dawson’s Creek. She got her big break in Batman Begins. Since then, Katie has probably become better know for her marriage to Tom Cruise.


Mark Wahlberg

Who could forget Marky Mark? From baggy-trousered rapper to established actor – who would have thought it?

Kirstie Alley was at the top of her career in the 80s and 90s, starring as the love interest on the popular TV sitcom Cheers. Though she may have become known for her yo-yo dieting along the way, we think she looks better than ever now the 80s curls have gone! We were all cheering her on when she was runner up in 2011’s Dancing With The Stars.


Gary Barlow

This is one man who is most certainly getting better with age! Bet he wished someone told him the bleach blond barnet was never a good look! Still, we just can’t fault him now.


Renee Zellweger

Renee Zellweger, known for her role as the hopeless romantic Bridget Jones, caused a media storm in 2014 when she appeared at an awards ceremony looking almost unrecognisable. We think she looks great, but has Renee just aged, or had a little help along the way?


Bruce Willis

Who remembers that Bruce Willis actually had hair, not to mention dodgy taste in shirts? Bald he may be, but sexy Bruce will always be our kind of action hero!

Drew Barrymore

From playing cute little Gertie in E.T, to becoming a Charlie’s Angel and now all-grown-up, Drew acts, produces and directs, oh and totally rocks red lippie!


Jennifer Love-Hewitt

Criminal Minds star Jennifer Love-Hewitt has come a long way from films such as Sister Act 2, I Know What You Did Last Summer and TV programme Party of Five. And thankfully, a long way from those hair crimpers!


Daniel Radcliffe

The pudding bowl haircut and round John-Lennon specs will always say Harry Potter to us. But while Daniel Radcliffe is no longer the much loved wizard, he still looks pretty magic to us!


Looking at these celebrities then and now – who do you think has aged the best?
