Film Star Transformations You Won’t Believe


We all change as we grow up, but doing so in the public eye can bring a lot of attention to you. Take a look at these celebrity transformations of then vs now and judge for yourself.

Paul Rudd

If you told us these pictures were taken 2 years apart, we’d have believed you. How this man has avoided aging is truly a miracle.


From Disney Channel cutie, to one of Hollywood’s biggest leading ladies. Zendaya deserves a round of applause.

Matthew Lewis

Neville Longbottom didn’t just grow up. He GREW. UP. This one had us speechless for a second.

Mara Wilson

Everyone’s favourite little bookworm, it’s hard to believe that adorable little Matilda is an actual adult now.

Freddie Highmore

Did you connect the dots and work out that innocent little Charlie Bucket who visited Willy Wonka’s Factory was the same guy as creepy Norman Bates from Bates Motel?

Olivia Newton-John

Here’s what Sandy from Grease looks like, all these years later.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Once a child star with luscious locks, Joseph Gordon Levitt rocks a different style now that he’s all grown up.

Drew Barrymore

All one can wish for is to age as gracefully as Drew Barrymore. Barely a thing has changed since her teenage years.

Cole Sprouse

Since starring on Disney Channel with his twin brother Dylan, Cole Sprouse has lost his chubby cheeks and blond hair, joining the dark side and developing some sharp cheekbones.

Taylor Momsen

Cindy Lou from the Grinch may not look like a Who anymore, but she sure is stunning.

Henry Thomas

Most known as Elliott from E.T, Henry Thomas still acts today, starring in shows like The Haunting of Hill House. We wouldn’t blame you for not recognizing him immediately.

Nicholas Hoult

From a cutie-pie kid in About a Boy, to a grubby teen in Skins, Nicholas Hoult has had some looks over the years. His current one happens to be our favourite – just look at him.

Devin Ratray

I can’t tell if this is exactly what Buzz from Home Alone was supposed to look like when he grew up, or the complete opposite. It makes sense, but it’s still surprising.

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher

This pair used to play a cute couple on That 70s Show, and now they’re an A-lister couple IRL. We still ship them just as much.

Dick Van Dyke

Dick Van Dyke starred in Mary Poppins in 1964, and still looks this youthful. At 95 years of age, that’s something to be proud of.

Will Poulter

From a young dorky kid with big eyebrows in We’re the Millers, to a muscly man who’s really grown into his features. Who could’ve predicted it?

Bianca Lawson

This woman must be a vampire, because she’s been playing a 17-year-old for over 20 years. It doesn’t even seem fair to call this a then and now comparison, because it would be impossible to tell which are the young photos and which are current.

Josh Peck

The chubby Drake and Josh star dropped a few pounds after finishing up on the Nickelodeon show, and looks pretty darn great nowadays, don’t you think?

Julia Roberts

Julia Roberts has aged like fine wine. But I’m sure you already knew that.
