Before They Were Hot: The Most Embarrassing Celebrity Yearbook Photos

Jeremy RennerOh, to be a celebrity. To have perfect hair and perfect teeth and perfect skin — it must be nice. It’s almost like they come out of the womb flawlessly coifed and camera-ready. But lucky for us, that’s not the case.

Awkward, gangly, pimple-faced teenagers with bad clothes and worse haircuts. Even sex symbols like George Clooney, Jeremy Renner, Kim Kardashian, and Minka Kelly had to suffer through a gawky phase, and there’s photographic evidence to prove it. Future actors of America take note: it’s best to ditch school on picture day, lest your least flattering moments find their way onto the Internet.
