Celebs: Then and Now

I was watching the Lindsay Lohan documentary on Own (on demand).  She's 27 years old, has been in and out of rehab 6 times. She smokes like a chimney and she's quite a bit nutty.  I still have high hopes for her.  Anyways, it got me to thinking about the Lindsay we all met in 1998's The Parent Trap.  She grew up in front of our eyes and we saw her in Freaky Friday and Mean Girls. Since then Lindsay has gone through several hair colors, a music career, and lip fillers.

Then I started thinking about Miley Cyrus.  When I lived in Los Angeles I did some background work in Hannah Montana.  We were on break from shooting for lunch and I was sitting at a table with some other background actors.  Miley walked by and was so pretty sweet and said hi and everything.  She was 14 at the time. It's amazing how people change in Hollywood.

Not every celeb has had such a dramatic change since childhood.  Natalie Portman was also a child star. In 1994 she starred in the movie The Professional, she was 12.  Natalie has had quite a successful movie career and is an Oscar winner.

We can't forget our favorite chick from Saved By The Bell, now can we?!  At 18 Tiffani Thiessen won the hearts of every pre-pubescent boy in America as Kelly Kapowski.  Now, at the age of 40, Tiffani has her own cooking show and can also be seen on the hit show Blue Collar.  She's still as gorgeous as ever!

Every man knows who Scarlett Johansson is.  The hot version anyways.  Do you remeber her from Ghost World where she starred at Thora Birch's best friend? I do.  Scarlett sure has grown up quite beautifully and with a great career to boot!

Anne Hathway hasn't been around quite as long of Scarlett or Natalie, but she's matured before our eyes.  She was one of our favorite Princesses in Ella Enchated and The Princess Diaries.  She's been nominated for an Oscar more than once and won and Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in Les Miserables.

Did anyone out there watch Clarissa Explains It All??? I sure did. I bought the book and everything!  Of course, I watched Sabrina the Teenage Witch too. Loved it!  Melissa Joan Hart has a new television show on ABC Family called Melissa and Joey and Joey Lawrence costars with her.  MJH has has some challenges growing up in front of the cameras an paparazzi. She's been scrutinized for her weight gain and weight loss. She looks great now!

Rachel McAdams is one of my favorites! I think I've seen every movie she's done and I love her!  Her huge break out role was starring with Ryan Gosling in The Notebook.  We also know her from her costar role with Lindsay Lohan in Mean Girls as Regina George and we can't forget her in The Hot Chick.  She's been through boyfriends, pink hair, and several fabulous films.  I can't wait to see what's next!

Transformation can be interesting. Especially if it's someone who is always in the spotlight.  I may not have grown up in front of an audience, but I did grow up in front of a camera, my mom's camera!
I'm big into selfies right now :)

I want to see your then and now!
