Although all mothers see their children as the most gorgeous in the world, we know that's not always the case, and the truth is that we all went through some phases while growing up where we were not quite as glamorous as we wanted, especially during our childhood or teenage years. Those transitions became an awkward process when we were growing up, and unfortunately, technology has made it so that records of those awkward stages exist forever.
While we are obviously embarrassed by those old photos that our mothers have kept with such fondness (and delusion), Hollywood celebrities also went through those stages of change before reaching adulthood or fame. And, of course, our favorite celebrities also have mothers who have been in charge of recording every moment of their children's lives with a camera. Luckily, adulthood changes everything, including self-confidence in people.
So today we will talk about 15 of our favorite celebrities that also went through those uncomfortable moments in childhood before they blossomed into the glamorous people we know and love today.
