Remember those good old teenage days when all you cared about was if your braids will make for a perfect curly hair the next morning? Or was it the phase when you decided that you will start wearing tons of makeup, just because everyone else was doing it? Many of us had these teenage phases that quickly passed. Celebrities had them, too. It’s not like Taylor Swift always looked like this perfect red-lipped blonde she is now. They, too, looked awkward in their childhood and teen days. Try recognizing them in the following pictures.
1. Jimmy Kimmel
Although it blurry and far away, you can sense the awkwardness radiating from this little stud! Some wouldn’t even recognize him.

2. Blake Lively
First of all, this picture has a lot of good stuff. The matching goggles, the cat, and the radiating smile on Blake’s face. We’ve been there, Blake, and we’ve done that, too! It’s so comforting to see pictures of celebrities going all awkward, isn’t it?

3. Jamie Foxx
Okay, need some time to recover from just looking at this photo! I can’t believe Jamie looked like this! So cute! And, yeah, bless puberty!
Sorry, who? Eminem? Now I see what he looked like when he actually had hair. His smile is the cutest thing that happened to me today.

7. Tina Fey
OMG! Where to start? Her hairstyle is so cool, but her facial expression makes her appear a bit awkward. She is still great, though.
