Ever look at an old picture of yourself and cringe? We have all taken bad photos at one time or another. The same is true of people who look back on old photos and remember themselves younger and looking even better. One thing is for certain, old photos always seem to bring a smile to someone's face in one way or another.

Celebrities are a special breed. But celebrities aren’t born with a silver spoon and paparazzi staring at them. Often times, celebrities were once regular high school kids and college aged kids who were just trying to make it in the world. They often had terrible haircuts just like everyone else and dorky smiles to go along with them. The celebrities we see today, who are polished and done up from beauty salons, are far different versions of themselves from many years prior. They didn't have hair stylists and makeup artists with them at all hours of the day. They also didn't have personal trainers and nutritionists making sure their body was perfectly sculpted.

The raw photos from celebrities before they ever made it on the small or big screen is definitely an interesting contrast to what they look like today. These photos show younger celebrities before they ever made it big. What's even more interesting is that these photos are bikini shots of celebrities who were aspiring actresses, singers, or young women who just wanted to be stars.

These are 10 Celebrity Bikini Bodies Before They Were Famous.

10 Jennifer Lopez

“Jenny From The Block” started out as a dancer on the hit show In Living Color. She was one of the “Fly Girls” who shook it and gained notoriety back in 1991. From there, she decided to jump into acting. It would be the 1997 role in the Selena biopic that shot Lopez to stardom. This bikini picture was taken just as Lopez was about to blow up in 1997. In 1999, Lopez moved on to music with her debut studio album, On the 6.

9 Kim Kardashian


It is easy to understand why Kim Kardashian draws a lot of attention for her looks. Back in the day, a much younger Kardashian shows off her beautiful features in this bikini photo. For those living under a rock over the last decade and may not know, Kim is the daughter of a famous attorney and her step father was Olympic gold medalist Bruce Jenner. The Kardashian hype machine jumped into gear when her infamous sex tape was “accidentally” leaked.

8 Halle Berry


Halle Berry is a former beauty queen and is a gorgeous actress. Prior to Berry hitting the big screen and becoming a “Bond” girl, she was Miss Ohio back in 1986 and very nicely sported a bikini for her efforts. It would be in 1992 when Berry got her big break starring in the Eddie Murphy vehicle, Boomerang. In the film, playing Murphy’s love interest, Berry’s personality and beauty was showcased on the big screen and she has since made herself a tremendous career.

7 Sofia Vergara


Prior to Sofia Vergara ever entering the American vernacular, this Colombian beauty dawned the small screen on the Spanish-language television network, Univision. There she appeared on a couple of television shows but it would be her modeling spreads that garnered Vergara a ton of attention.

6 Angelina Jolie


Angelina Jolie is blessed with a unique beauty. Her cat-like eyes and intriguing personality have helped her become a sex symbol. As a young up-and-coming actress in Hollywood, this bikini photo shoot from 1991 displays all the hotness we have come to expect from Jolie. She first became known to the world when she played Laura Croft in her Tomb Raider films, the series making good use of Jolie’s finely sculpted hourglass figure.

5 Gwen Stefani


Gwen Stefani has gone from the lead singer of the alternative rock band No Doubt to a brand name, mother, and business woman. Stefani co-founded the rock group No Doubt in the late 1980s. But before Stefani helped create the hit tracks, she was captured frolicking in the ocean back in the late 80s. When this photo was shot, Stefani and the band were working hard to put together their album, Tragic Kingdom. Stefani was just starting college when the album blew up. She had to quit college and head out on tour to support the album.

4 Christina Ricci


3 Cameron Diaz


2 Michelle Pfeiffer


1 Heather Locklear


Heather Locklear is a beautiful actress who is best known for her appearances on the shows Dynasty and Melrose Place. Locklear was modeling back in 1985 and showcased her incredible looks in this bikini shot during her stint on Dynasty. After establishing herself there, Locklear catapulted herself to stardom with the character of Amanda Woodward on Melrose Place. From that point on, Locklear has been a television veteran, appearing on many shows as a featured actress as well as a lead one. Locklear was first married to drummer Tommy Lee for seven years. After that, she moved on to marry Bon Jovi’s lead guitarist, Richie Sambora, and remained married to him for 12 years. Since then, Locklear has steered clear of men in the music business. Locklear has won numerous Golden Globe Awards and despite her personal issues, she is a stellar looking woman whose beauty is timeless.
