Let’s admit it. We all love stalking at celebrities’ photos. Whether they’re all glammed up or down to their sweat pants, we can’t help but stare at their photos. But preferably, we want it raw so we get a glimpse of their humanity, right? We can’t say if these celebrities enjoy being photographed all the time but it’s part of fame. So we’ve compiled a couple of never before seen photos from famous people. Some were even taken before they rose to fame. Hope you enjoy these photos as much as we did.
The highly renowned theoretical physicists, cosmologist, and author is looked up to for his astounding contributions to his field. Especially his study and theories about black holes. He also received awards and recognition for his amazing discoveries and contributions. Although he excelled academically his personal life wasn’t as notable. He was married twice but sadly both ended in divorce. At 21, he was diagnosed to have ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease. Now, he communicates using a single cheek muscle attached to a speech-generating device.
A lot of famous celebrities now got started on The Mickey Mouse Club. Just like these three big name celebrities now. They appeared on the Mickey Mouse Show from 1993 to 1996. Other famous celebrities who were Mouseketeers, are Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera.
Now this is a rare photo. Who would have thought we would be able to see Kurt Cobain and RuPaul photographed together while photobombed by Dave Grohl? Look like RuPaul likes kids but Kurt’s daughter, Frances Bean looks unamused. She was named after the guitarist, of the pop duo, The Vaselines and her middle name Bean was chosen by Kurt because he thought that she looked like a little bean in the ultrasound.
The Hollywood heartthrob isn’t so perfect after all. This photo was taken in 1977 when he was just 14. He looks like a splitting image of Shiloh here. Now we have an idea of what she would look like when she grows up. Despite being the losing team, as we can see in the photo, he still managed to smile. Brad, was the eldest of three children and grew up in a strict Southern Baptist family. His dad owned a trucking company and his mom was a family counselor.
Here’s a priceless photo of Michael Jackson and Mr. T. The two seem to be enjoying goofing around. Many people aren’t aware that Mr. T spent 10 years as a Hollywood bodyguard. Michael Jackson was just one of his very famous clients. The famous wrestler and movie star was inducted into the WWE wrestling hall of fame in 2014. Looks like they missed each other?
No, that’s not Macaulay Culkin. It’s Steve Buscemi during his younger and pre-Hollywood days. Before he became an actor, he was a New York City Fire Department. He worked for Engine Company No. 55 in the Little Italy section of NY between 1980 and 1984. The day after 9/11, Steve showed up at his old firehouse to volunteer – digging through rubble looking for victims.
The two first met in the Yale library in 1970. It was Bill’s first year in law school and Hillary’s second. During Bill Clinton’s presidency, Hillary traveled to 79 countries, breaking the previous record held by First Lady Pat Nixon, wife of Richard Nixon. Close friends of the couple report how close they are, in spite of crazy schedules and busy lives.
8. Brad Pitt and Jason Priestley
Back in 1987, these two were rumored to share a place when they were both trying to make it in tinsel town. Both of them were able to make a name for themselves. Jason Priestly captured America’s hearts a year earlier when the show Beverly Hills 90210 became a national sensation, Brad Pitt on the other hand, gained worldwide attention for his role in 1991 blockbuster hit Thelma and Louise.
We rarely see photos of billionaire entrepreneurs goofing around. Who knows what’s going on here but this is definitely a fun photo. Shaq is just at the start of his career to be an NBA superstar and Bill Gates was working his way to becoming a millionaire. He almost hit his goal to be a millionaire at 30 but hit it just slightly off at 31. The Microsoft founder continued to fly coach until around 1997 when his net worth was well into billions. Those who know him best claim that in spite of his incredible fame, he still remains humble.
This photo of two of the most brilliant minds of our time says a lot. Who knew that they used to hang out together back when they were younger? It looks like they were discussing something very important here. An insider, Steve Wozniak, described how these two differ: “The real differences between where Steve Jobs is portrayed compared to Bill Gates is Steve Jobs having a very futuristic forward vision, almost a bit of the science fiction, ‘Here’s what life could be.’ But Bill Gates had more of an execution ability to build the things that are needed now, to build a company now, make the profits now, in the short-term. I think that was the biggest difference between them.”
Einstein wasn’t always considered to be a genius. As a child, he was considered to be a slow learner and spoke slowly. He did not care about the formalities of school work and preferred to spend his time playing with his sister and building card houses. Another thing that captured us about him was his disheveled look. His hair was often uncombed and rarely wore socks.
Now we know where Kate got her good looks. Goldie actually started her career as a dancer and successfully transitioned to acting. The stunning actress was born in 1945 and rose to fame on TV’s Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-IN. She then won an academy award for Best Supporting Actress for the film Cactus Flower. Since then she has been an A-list actress.
Young Peter is rocking the mullet. As a child, Peter got his first taste of performance playing the lead role in The Velveteen Rabbit. He then continued his acting career through high school and college until he eventually got his first debut role in Living in Oblivion. His breakout role was in the 2003 film The Station Agent where he received a nomination. Now, he has been playing Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones since 2011 and has won several awards for his acting.
Sir Charles Spencer “Charlie” Chaplin was born in London and rose to fame during the era of silent film. He grew up in poverty and hardship so he began performing at an early age to support himself and his siblings. He made his first debut as a member of the youth performing group, The Eight Lancashire Lads and quickly gained favor as an outstanding tap-dancer. He is now is considered one of the most important icons in the history of the film industry.
These two martial arts expert could probably beat up anybody and win. In reality, Chuck Norris and Bruce Lee meet together once in a while as friends and even compared notes about their own techniques. Although both men devoted their lives to the study of martial arts, Bruce did not compete in tournaments like Chuck Norris did.
It was refreshing to see these rare photos of celebrities. These raw and untouched photos bring us back to the good old days. They’ve all come a long way and have changed throughout the years. Who knew Steve Buscemi used to be a firefighter or Chuck Norris and Bruce Lee were real life friends? Everything looks so simple back then. No drama or anything over the top. But what would Hollywood be without all the extravagance, right?
