As back-to-school approaches, we decided to explore what some megastars look like in their yearbook photos. Stars, they’re just like us.
The photos we found on YouTube are full of bad haircuts and goofy smiles. Lady Gaga looks relatively normal, while diva Jennifer Lopez sports a pixie cut.
Megan Fox looks gorgeous, Owen Wilson is ridiculously polished, and Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan look very innocent.
The future celebrities’ star power and beauty still shine through in many of the photos.
