Celebrities share their old headshots from before they were famous

They are used to being seen on red carpets with not a hair out of place, but even the biggest celebrities had to start somewhere.

And now famous faces are sharing snaps of when they were nobodies trying to book jobs just like every other struggling actor, singer or model.

A string of celebrities have been sharing their headshots on social media for Old Headshot Day on Twitter.

Some were always blessed with the show-stopping good looks that helped them on the way to super stardom, while others looked a world away from the glamorous stars we see today.

Some of the headshots were decades old, as their owners laughed at how dated they look always these years later.

But can you guess which headshot belongs to which celebrity?
