Childhood can be an awkward time for many people, and celebrities are no exception. It’s highly likely that most parents silently pray to have an adorable baby, but as we grow, we can go through a few stages that aren’t so favorable before reaching adulthood. You may think famous people are able to skip these phases, but that’s not always the case.
Perhaps knowing that some of your favorite celebrities have some pictures from their youth that they’re not so proud of makes them more relatable. Knowing that the actors and musicians you’ve come to admire, partially for their good looks, likely had to go through a few stages before achieving hotness. For some, this provides a sense of humility. You may notice that some celebs are very modest when people mention how attractive they are, and it may be because they’re remembering a time when “hot” wasn’t exactly an accurate description for them. So, take heart. If you had to go through a period of time when you had braces, were a little chubby or couldn’t quite get your hair to behave, you are not alone. Here are 10 hot celebrities who weren’t exactly cute kids.
10 Kate Hudson
9 Catherine Zeta-Jones
8 Megan Fox
7 Kelly Brook
The buxom British model, actress and presenter was definitely not a cute kid. Thank goodness all that has changed. Kelly Brook had stringy red hair, a wide face and rather large teeth as a kid. Puberty was obviously kind to her, because she looks like a totally different person now. Brook was most recently seen as a main cast member in the NBC sitcom One Big Happy, where she plays the hot wife of a guy she hasn’t known for very long. We’re guessing most guys would probably jump at the chance to marry Kelly Brook, since her beautiful hair and curvy figure speak for themselves these days.
6 George Clooney
5 Ashton Kutcher
4 Ryan Seacrest
3 Jennifer Love Hewitt
2 Victoria Beckham
Former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham is also known for being super hot. She’s even made a career of being a fixture in the fashion world by starting a clothing line. When she cut her hair into a bob style, the media went crazy, and it’s very likely that hundreds of women went out to get this hairstyle. Victoria Beckham is also hot by association, since her husband David, is one of the most handsome men to ever play soccer. However, when Victoria was a child, she had a gap in her teeth and wispy hair that needed some help being tamed. Things have definitely changed for the better.
1 Sarah Jessica Parker
Sarah Jessica Parker changed the way that women everywhere viewed fashion and their love lives when she starred in the hit HBO show Sex and the City. Parker’s bold yet chic clothing on the show was definitely eye-catching, and her style was one of the main reasons viewers tuned in every week. Parker wasn’t always so fashion-forward and sophisticated, though. It took some time for her to learn how to style her naturally curly hair, and her teeth and nose were the prominent features of her face, which can’t be easy for a young girl. Thankfully, Parker has grown into a fashion icon and is regarded as beautiful and refined by many.
