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]
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]
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 Spy, USA Today]
After the jump, more stars who say they were utter failures at the jobs they held before making it big.
Well, well, well, it looks like money did buy Countess Luann de Lesseps class. Long before she wore custom Moroccan caftans on “The Real Housewives of New York City,” she was just a high school student with some crazy feathered hair and a dream of becoming a nurse. If only nurses still wore caps like that. Amazing. [via Tracie Egan Morrissey] Keep reading »
