How Celebrities Looked In Their 20s Vs How They Look Now

I have fond memories of my 20s. It's that magical age where you get to experience all the joys of adulthood with almost none of the actual responsibility that comes along with it.

Below are 10+ pictures of celebrities when they were in their 20s compared to now. A lot has changed, but as you can also clearly see — a lot more has stayed the same.

Paul Rudd

Paramount Pictures / Disney

Paul Rudd knows the secret location of the fountain of youth and isn't telling anyone. He's barely aged a day since he first stole our hearts in Clueless, and has remained as genuine a person as he ever was.

Jennifer Aniston

TriMark Pictures / @jenniferaniston

Did you know that Jennifer Aniston's first big-screen movie role was in the '90s cult horror movie, Leprechaun? It's about an evil leprechaun who goes on a murderous rampage after his lucky gold is inadvertently stolen from him.

John Travolta

ABC / @johntravolta

Back when John first broke onto the scene in Welcome Back, Kotter, he was known for his good looks and long flowing hair. He may have lost the flowing mane, but there's no denying that John is still a looker.

Reese Witherspoon

Sony Pictures / @reesewitherspoon

It's hard to believe that these two photos were taken more than 20 years apart from one another. Reese is like a fine wine that only seems to get better with age.

I bet that she can still bend and snap with the best of them.

Charlie Sheen

Orion Pictures / @charliesheen

When Platoon was released in theaters, Charlie was barely 20-years-old. It was this film and this performance that helped catapult him into the upper echelons of fame.

His fall from grace was legendary and it's truly wonderful to finally see him making a triumphant return.

Claire Danes

20th Century Fox / @clairedanes

If you want to talk about forgotten films from the '90s that don't get near the amount of respect that they deserve, there's hardly a film more fitting than Romeo + Juliet.

It's staggering to think that Claire Danes was still a teenager when this movie was made.

Matthew Broderick

Paramount Pictures / @sjp

One of the biggest downfalls of no longer having cable is that now I hardly ever get to watch Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

I swear, that movie used to play on repeat at least three times a day, every Sunday.

Jennifer Love Hewitt

Columbia Pictures / @jenniferlovehewitt

I know that this is going to sound dorky and maybe even embarrassing — but I still have nightmares about I Know What You Did Last Summer.

For as long as I live, I'll never be able to shake the image of Jennifer running away from Ben Willis

Leonardo DiCaprio

20th Century Fox / Sony Pictures

Leonardo DiCaprio has been a force to be reckoned with since the time that he was 13-years-old.

I swear, every tween girl on the planet back in the '90s had his poster from Romeo + Juliet on their wall.

Julia Roberts

Buena Vista / @juliaroberts

It's really true what they say: fashion tends to repeat itself. Julia's outfit from Pretty Woman looks exactly like what most of Gen Z is wearing nowadays.

I personally prefer the comfy blue hoodie, but I'm an old dinosaur.

Freddie Prinze Jr.

Miramax / @realfreddieprinze

I'm still ready to go to war with anyone who has anything negative to say about Freddie's iconic performance in She's All That.

He and Rachel Leigh Cook were "couples goals" before anyone on earth even understood what the term meant.

Sarah Michelle Gellar

WB / @sarahmgellar

Of course, we can't mention Freddie without bringing up his better badass half!

Sarah Michelle Gellar will always hold a very special place in my heart. No matter how much time passes, to me — she'll always be Buffy.

George Clooney

NBC / Netflix

For several years, George Clooney was considered by many to be the most eligible bachelor on the planet.

A lot has changed since George broke through on The Facts of Life — especially regarding his facial hair.

Halle Berry

Universal Pictures / @halleberry

From the moment that Halle Berry made her film debut in Jungle Fever, everyone knew that she was going to be a star.

The Oscar-winning actress remains one of the most beautiful women on the planet, and one of the most highly sought after.

Zac Efron

Disney / @zacefron

Wow — just wow. I was born into the era of Disney Channel but even I'd forgotten how Zac used to rock the long hair flow.

Thank goodness he's since opted to keep it short. although I must say I'm not a fan of the blonde look he's been rocking.

Demi Moore

TriStar Pictures / @demimoore

A long time has passed since Demi was running with the Brat Pack, but she still looks as stunning as ever. Of all the classic '80s coming-of-age films, St. Elmo's Fire ranks the highest in my opinion.

Emilio Estevez

Universal Pictures / Disney

It's the Minnesota Miracle Man himself, Mr. Gordon Bombay aka Emilio Estevez.

While we're on the subject, has anyone watched The Might Ducks: Gamechangers on Disney +? I hear good things, but I'm terrified that it might tarnish the entire franchise for me.

Joshua Jackson

Universal Pictures / @vancityjax

Unless you grew up in the '90s and had a healthy obsession with all things, Joshua Jackson — it's very likely that you never saw The Skulls.

This exciting thriller stars Joshua opposite the late Paul Walker and revolves around the inner workings of a corrupt college's secret society.

Matt LeBlanc

NBC / @mattleblanc

How you doin, Matt LeBlanc? Did anyone else happen to catch the Friends reunion? Now be honest — how much did you cry from start to finish? I swear I must have gone through at least two boxes of tissues.

Courtney Cox

NBC / @courteneycoxofficial

The fact that Courteney Cox never received an Emmy Award (let alone a nomination) for playing Monica Gellar is criminal. Almost as criminal as those bangs that she's sporting in the upcoming Scream sequel. They're absolutely terrifying.

Ice Cube

Columbia Pictures / @icecube

Sure, there's no denying that Ice Cube is great in movies like Ride Along and of course — Friday. But if you want to see him at his best, there's nothing that quite compares to the '90s classic Boyz n the Hood.

Matthew Perry

NBC / @matthewperry4

Everyone loves Matthew Perry in Friends, but do you remember his performance in The Whole Nine Yards? That movie is an underrated classic. I'll never understand why Matthew never made more of a splash on the big screen.

Johnny Depp

New Line Cinema / @johnnydepp

Here's a fun fact for you: Wes Craven's immortal classic A Nightmare on Elm Street was Johnny Depp's film debut. Can you imagine being the first director to ever see Johnny perform through the eye of a camera lens?

Sandra Bullock

20th Century Fox / Netflix

I know that Sandra Bullock is an esteemed Oscar-winning actress, but to me — she will always be Gracie Lou Freebush from Miss Congeniality. The scene where she performs self-defense on Benjamin Bratt will live rent-free in my mind, forever.

Keira Knightley

New Line Cinema / Marv Films

This is my theory on why Keira Knightley doesn't seem to age — she's a time traveler. That's why you always see her excel in period piece dramas. She isn't acting, she's simply remembering things from her past lives.

Catherine Zeta-Jones

TriStar Pictures / @catherinezetajones

Speaking of scenes that will live rent-free in my mind until the end of time, can we talk about Catherine's swordfight with Antonio Banderas in The Mask of Zorro?! For all the film's many faults, this scene certainly wasn't one of them.

Gabrielle Union

Buena Vista / @gabunion

As a young man growing up, I always hated the term "chick-flick." Not only is it borderline insulting toward women, but it's also incredibly alienating for men. In any case, 10 Things I Hate About You is one of the best "chick-flicks" of all time.

Jamie Lee Curtis

Compass International Pictures / @curtisleejamie

It's kind of crazy to think that Jamie first appeared in the storied Halloween franchise back in 1978 — that's 43 years ago.

While I admittedly wasn't the biggest fan of 2018's Halloween, you bet your boots I'll still be the first in line for Halloween Kills.

Gwyneth Paltrow

New Line Cinema / @gwynethpaltrow

It's been more than 20 years since audiences first heard Brad Pitt scream "What's in the box?" in David Fincher's Seven.

Since then, Gwyneth has gone on to become not only one of Hollywood's most esteemed actresses but a business mogul as well.

Marisa Tomei

20th Century Fox / @marisatomei

When Marisa Tomei won "Best Actress" for her role in My Cousin Vinny, the critics thought that she stole it. When she didn't win "Best Actress" for her work in In The Bedroom, they said she was robbed.

I guess life has a way of balancing itself out.

Uma Thurman

Miramax / @umathurman

I like to think that whenever John Travolta and Uma Thurman happen to run into one another in the real world, they lock eyes, drop whatever it is that they're doing — and twist.

Don't tell me I'm wrong, I don't want to hear it.
