9 celebs before they were famous

Cape Town - Sjoe, to think there was a time before filters, trending topics and social media. But who’s complaining? Now we get to see how fabulous the other half lives, and sometimes they even share those adorable (or awkward!) throwback pics. 

We’ve chosen the best of celebrity throwbacks. And you’ve been warned, prepare for cuteness overload.
