Some celebrities begin as child stars, and we basically get to see them grow up in front of our eyes. The Harry Potter cast, for example – we saw them on red carpets throughout their childhood as they promoted the films, and any shots of a twelve year old Daniel Radcliffe or Emma Watson are immediately recognizable.

Then, there are the rest of the celebrities making Hollywood their home. Many of these stars come from towns across the United States or the U.K. and only step into the public eye when their career starts. Some begin achieving fame when they’re as young as 18 or 19, and others don’t achieve notoriety until they’re much older, even in their 30s. Regardless, we essentially see them when they’re fully formed and Hollywood-gorgeous. Sure, style changes, and a lot of these stars probably regret certain hair styles or fashion choices they rocked in the 1990s, but looking at older pictures of them, we still know who they are.

That is, until you start finding photos from way, way back – all the way from childhood. It makes sense that a lot of gorgeous celebs would be equally adorable as children, but if you looked at any of these photos without knowing who the individual pictured was, you probably wouldn’t be able to match them up with who they grew up to be.

Here are 20 actors you would never recognize as children.

Okay, if you haven’t yet seen any picture of Joe Manganiello when he was younger, you need to sit down for this one. You know Joe Manganiello – the super sexy guy who played werewolf Alcide on Herveaux on True Blood and co-starred in the Magic Mike movies. Manganiello has an incredibly sculpted body that any guy would kill for – and any girl would kill to get her hands on. That physique took a lot of work, however – just look at his childhood photo. Manganiello, posing for a basketball photo, is pictured with thick glasses and an incredibly skinny, lanky frame. Growing up treated him very, very well. Manganiello has used this childhood photo many times promoting his fitness book Evolution, arguing that if he can transform his body from this to his current state, so can you!
