"Just let me talk about bleeding, Walter."

Well before he played, sniff, grandfatherly hitman Mike on “Breaking Bad,” actor Jonathan Banks still dealt in some pretty bloody business. Here he is in a strangely long informational video about menstruation. Odd!

All The Famous People Who Went To Our High Schools

We got into a discussion yesterday about famous people who went to our high school — those who we knew and those who we didn’t. It got really interesting when Julie told us about an infamous member of her graduating class. Not to be all name-droppy, but here’s a complete list of the most infamous/famous alums from our high schools after the jump. No, we didn’t include ourselves on the list. But who knows, maybe someday … Keep reading »

Remember When Julia Stiles Played A Streetwise Hacker On “Ghostwriter”?

"Can you jam with the console cowboys in cyberspace?"

Lucky for us, the internet remembers. What’s the internet, you ask? Well, according to Julia Stiles’ character in this clip from a 1993 “Ghostwriter” episode, “It’s a world where you’re judged by what you say and think, not by what you look like, a world where curiosity and imagination equals power.” God, I miss the ’90s.

Before They Were Famous: Celebrity Prom Pictures

Long before the stars attended events like the Oscars and Grammy Awards, the biggest thing on their calendar was prom night!

Can You Name This Famous Face?

Long before they were cool musicians, most of these celebs were dorky kids just like you and me — and we’ve got the proof. This selection of junior high and high school photos from some of the world’s top musicians confirms that even the most jaded rockstar was probably kind of a dweeb when they were younger. Which begs the question: Can you match the nerdy class pic with the famous face?

Before They Were Famous: Guess The Future Hotties!

Before he was a real life stripper-turned-actor, Channing Tatum was just an adorable little kid who liked to play Cowboys & Indians. In celebration of Tatum’s 32nd birthday on Thursday, his mom Kay shared the cute photo with his official website.

According to Kay, Tatum was just four years old in when the shot was taken. “I don’t think this was Halloween or anything,” she added. “He had lots of outfits for play, for instance, soldiers, police, karate, cowboy, etc. He was always ‘the actor’ :)” 

Too cute! Check out more stars before they were famous in the gallery here!

These pre-fame pictures of Zooey Deschanel circa 2001 made me like her again. Before her extensive collection of vintage-y cotton dresses and her perfectly sideswiped bangs, she was wearing fishnets just like the rest of us alterna-chicks.  I will be merciful on her chunky shoes and wrong-length hemlines, because really, I was in much worse style shape 11 years ago. Three words: velvet leopard pants. Yes, I did. [Daily Mail UK]

“RHOA” Star Kim Zolciak Before She Wore Wigs

Before she was big on wigs, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kim Zolciak was big on hairspray. Bravo released some pictures of her back in the day. I must say, her natural hair is impressively large. And, now that I can see her real face, it’s clear who her daughter Brielle takes after. Click through to see more pics of Kim before she was tardy for the party. [Too Fab]

15 Celebs Who Sucked At Their Pre-Fame Jobs

Jennifer Aniston may play one of titular crappy bosses in the movie “Horrible Bosses.” But until she made it big on “Friends,” she could have been more accurately described as a “horrible employee.” In the press scramble for the movie, several reporters have asked her about her worst jobs and she’s given a few different answers. “I waited a lot of tables, and I wasn’t very good at that,” she told Marie Claire. “I dropped more than one Alpine burger in customers’ laps, and you just do not want all of that Swiss cheese and mushrooms in your pants.” She also wasn’t so hot at bike messengering—a profession I associate much more with tattooed guys than with America’s Sweetheart. “The toughest job I had was being a bike messenger in New York City,” Jennifer shared with Canwest News Service. “I was 19. [My lowest moment was] probably driving into a door that opened. I’m very uncoordinated and extraordinarily klutzy.” [Showbiz SpyUSA Today]

After the jump, more stars who say they were utter failures at the jobs they held before making it big.
