Celebrities Then and Now
There is one thing no one can escape, and that is getting older. The photos showing the celebrities then and now prove just that!
With his photo editing skills, Dutch graphic designer Ard Gelinck makes time travel possible - some of our favorite celebrities meet their grown-up versions before our eyes. And it's not a glitch in the matrix, but Gelinck combines current and past images of celebrities into one photomontage. While it may seem a little strange to see these icons side by side with their "younger selves", we're all in for the nostalgic vibe. After this, you'll feel like you're back in your childhood! Here's what well-known stars look like then and now...
The singer has changed her appearance a lot in the last few years. But in both photos, she beams at the lens with her natural beauty. No matter what Adele's scale says, her natural beauty remains the same!
#2 David Beckham
The footballer's younger self could very well be one of his three sons. That's when you realize the striking resemblance between Papa David and his sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz. Which of the three resembles him the most?
There are some exciting news about David Beckham:
David Beckham Has His Own Series on Disney+
Former soccer star David Beckham returns to East London to help a soccer team that has suffered defeat after defeat. Beckham himself grew up in East London and used to play in the same league as the kids he will coach in the upcoming Disney+ series. “I was like you guys,” he tells the team, who are speechless as they sit in the same locker room as the soccer legend. The series is about team spirit and motivating promising young talent to believe in themselves again. You can stream “Save Our Squad“ from November 9, 2022! (And yes, you can find myriads of comments about whether the team can “bend it like Beckham“ below the post)
Let's get back on track, though, and move on to the next celeb comparison:
#3 Inger Nilsson
We know the actress best for her role as "Pippi Longstocking". What a great photomontage, little Pippi sitting next to herself as an adult.
No, this is not Rihanna with her child, but with her "younger self". How beautiful they are together. You'd almost think you had two sisters in front of you.
#5 Jennifer Grey
Thanks to "Dirty Dancing", Jennifer Grey has become a worldwide star. Since the famous movie, the actress has transformed herself a lot to keep her youthful appearance. She made visits to the beauty doc from time to time.
#6 Haley Joel Osment
For his role in "The Sixth Sense," Osment received an Oscar nomination for best supporting actor. But unfortunately, he was not really able to recapture the success of the film. Seeing him with his younger self is really heartwarming!
#7 Jennifer Aniston
How does the actress manage to not age a year? Even in her 50s, Jennifer Aniston still looks like a young adult.
We can't say the same about the next one!
#8 Jake Gyllenhaal
Before, he had a cute baby face, today he looks much more mature and adult. The actor has changed a lot over the years!
#9 Emma Watson
As a studious student, "Hermione" aka Emma Watson has entered our hearts. But in real life, too, the actress is making a name for herself with her social commitment and her college degree.
#10 Ed O'Neill
Some know him from "Married... with Children", others from "Modern Family". Ed O'Neill has been in the movie business for many, many years, as the two photos of the actor prove.
On the other slides you can see celebrities whose former and present selves the artist has paralleled, such as "Carlton" from "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air".
#11 George Clooney
Many only know the actor by his legendary gray hair. But in the past, George Clooney had a very different face. Will his son soon look like him?
#12 Mary-Kate und Ashley Olsen
The Olsen twins brought the double trouble to "Full House". Today, even though the two still look like each other, they are distinguished instead by their outfits and their hair. In this article, you can also admire other celebs' changes, including that of Neil Patrick Harris.
#13 Bruce Willis
Stars like Bruce Willis give us a sense of how long some actors have been in the movie business. Many grew up with him as a crush and have always been able to count on his films as entertainment. Too bad he had to end his career in the meantime.
#14 Will Smith
The star of "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" hasn't changed much over the years either. He's still very recognizable and remains a highly sought-after person in the entertainment world.
#15 Mariah Carey
At the risk of making us feel very old: Mariah Carey is also already in her fifties and has a very long career behind her. Even if her weight fluctuations are still the talk of the town, she shows how weight is not important for a person's beauty.
#16 Elton John
What a beautiful photomontage of the musician! Next to his younger self, Elton John looks like a loving uncle giving a helping hand to his slightly crazy nephew.
#17 Kate Winslet und Leonardo DiCaprio
Who is looking over the shoulder of "Rose" in "Titanic"? It is of course Kate Winslet, who is now more mature, but just as beautiful.
In the following slide, you can see her love from "Titanic", Leonardo DiCaprio, getting older, what a great juxtaposition of the dream couple.
#18 Queen Elizabeth II
The sight of the Queen makes us smile a little. Not many people remember what the 96-year-old looked like when she was young and was crowned queen. It's amazing how time flies...
#19 Rachel McAdams Is Breaking Beauty Standards:
Rachel McAdams has once again taken the world by storm with her latest photo shoot, in which she embraced her natural body, including underarm hair, and requested minimal editing. The actress, who is promoting her upcoming movie "Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret", based on the bestselling Judy Blume book, has been candid about how she has been embracing the changes in her body as she has grown older.
In an interview, Rachel explained her decision to embrace her natural body in the photo shoot, stating, “With this shoot, I’m wearing latex underwear. But I’ve had two children. This is my body, and I think that’s so important to reflect back out to the world,” she said of the photos, which she apparently requested “be edited as minimally as possible.” She also emphasized that beauty is different for everyone, and it's okay to look your best while embracing your natural self. You tell 'em, Rachel!
