Alright gang, it’s time to hop into your time machines and  blast to the past. Our love for huge stars like James Franco, Mila Kunis and Leonardo DiCaprio have grown and grown over the years – and it’s no secret why. They have got a healthy dose of talent, and then some. But these guys weren’t always seasoned vets in the game of movie fame. They were young, nervous, hungry go-getters like the rest of us, just trying to leave a print in the world. And fortunately for them, they ended up leaving pretty big prints and continue to do so.

Check out the gallery we’ve created and the roles these big-shots booked Before They Became Household Names. You may recognize some of the young, fresh-faced celebrities, but many of them will be hard to detect! So go on, take a look and give a round of applause to the long way these celebs have come over the years.
