10+ People Who Knew What Celebs Were Like When They Were Younger

Once upon a time, the celebrities we know and love were just regular people.

They worked normal jobs, pumped their own gas, and attended school like the rest of us. They also dated regular people for some time.

As a result, these are the ones who know what celebrities were really like before they were famous.

Don't burn your tongue on this sizzling hot tea!

1. Drake

His song "Nice For What" may have something to do with this Redditor's story...

"I had a teacher who taught drake. Apparently he was a nice kid but then got really douchey when he started getting famous."

2. Jamie Foxx

Before Jamie got involved with people like Katie Holmes, he was just a regular dude, dating regular people.

This is how this Twitter user said that she used to call the actor "Uncle Jamie."

3. Jennifer Lawrence

What you see is what you get with Jennifer.

"She was always very quirky, kinda weird (which was funny because she was so preppy presenting, but really wasn’t like that), she was very loud, made her presence known. It’s been bizarre seeing her in interviews because she acts the exact same." - Redditor cg42069

4. Leonardo DiCaprio

Talk about hitting gold by coming upon these pics!

Leo may only be into dating Victoria's Secret models, but this girl should really see if she can rekindle the flame between him and her aunt.

5. Steve Harvey

According to this Reddit user, the Miss Universe wasn't the only time Steve messed up...

"My mom used to ride the bus to work in downtown Cleveland with Steve Harvey’s first wife. Apparently she supported him while he was trying to get his career started. And then basically as soon as he got successful he divorced her for a younger woman."

6. Lori Loughlin

The Full House star's reputation has taken quite the hit over the past two years.

But thankfully, she has pics like these to prove that, above it all, she was once just a regular person.

7. Megan Fox

"Went to middle school with Meagan fox for a bit. She rode my bus and she mostly kept to herself. Most of the guys would fight over who was going to sit next to her but she was very shy and didn't really have much to say." - Redditor Cows0303

8. Adam Sandler

This is too cute. This Twitter user shared that her mom dated the comedian in high school.

They even went to the prom together! Now, we just need to know why they broke up.

9. Paul Rudd

What this Redditor has to say about Rudd pre-fame makes us so relieved.

"A friend of mine is buddies with Paul Rudd. Says he's exactly the same and a great human."

10. Brad Pitt

TikTok user @emmemaclendonn was just going through her mother's old scrapbook when she stumbled upon the equivalent of finding gold.

IT WAS BRAD PITT IN HER MOM'S PHOTOS. Um, Mom, you have some explaining to do.

Since the year was 1988, this photo was taken literally one year before the A-List actor made his big-screen debut in the horror film, *Cutting Class*.

This means that this gal's mom might still have been pals with the gorgeous star before fame got him (and maybe something more?).

11. Rachel McAdams

"Work in a restaurant about 15 years ago as a manager. Rachel McAdams walked in for an interview. She was still in acting school and serving table to pay for it. She worked at my restaurant over the course of the next 2 summers, serving on our patio. Still friends to this day. She hasnt changed a bit. Still bikes to get groceries." - Redditor Pymm

12. John Legend

Seeing John with that hair and goatee is everything.

"so my mom decides to tell me she dated john legend secretly when I was 10???? mom u let him go wyd....." this person wrote on Twitter.

13. Tom Hanks

You will think that the actor is precious and must be protected at all costs after reading this Redditor's account.

"Friend of mine was friends with Tom Hanks in high school and went to prom with him. He still writes her personalized BDay cards on one of his typewriters."

14. Matthew McConaughey

The actor is happily married now, but back in his college days, he was crazy for his college sweetheart. This just so happened to be this Twitter user's cousin.

Even through this photo, we can hear him saying, "alright, alright, alright."

15. Queen Latifa

"My coworkers dad grew up with Queen Latifah in North Jersey. His whole family loves her because they were about to lose their house, so she paid it off for them. They’ve never said a bad thing about her." - Redditor sashimi_girl

16. Emma Chamberlain

In case you don't know who Emma is, she's a huge YouTuber. According to some Reddit comments, she was also quite the bully in high school...

"I went to high school with Emma Chamberlain," wrote Redditor klay-stan.

"She was a huge bully in high school and pretty much a brat who thought she could get away with whatever she wanted (before she got famous)."

They continued on by saying that since her parents were divorced, they tried to be her friend instead of actually parenting her.

17. Ashton Kutcher

Before the A-list actor was famous, he was just Chris (his real name). He did normal things like work in a cereal factory and date normal people.

That's how this Twitter user discovered that Aston dated her aunt and could have been her uncle!
