Yearbook photos of the famous

Yearbook photos of the famous – Looking back at the past can be a lot of fun or extremely cringe worthy, or both! The super cool, popular, powerful famous were all once kids and they would have had yearbook photos and their words etched forever below them. So those famous people, did they leave their teens looking dapa or looking ridiculous and after all what does it matter? Well, it doesn’t but it’s fun to look back.

Yearbook photos of the famous

Laughter is the best medicine eh? So you can look back and laugh more and more as each year passes. However the photos are not that bad and you can laugh more at the era than the individual.

Here are some photos as originally published in our post on The Random Forest.

Chris Christie

New Jersey Gov Chris Christie graduated in 1980 from Livingston High School


Chris Christie + 2016 president: One of the reasons to mention him is that he may be racing for president in 2016, we could be seeing a lot more of this man!

Chris Christie + secret lap-band surgery: He was a lot slimmer in his high school days (weren’t we all!) and he has reportedly undergone lap-band surgery to try to get back to that, maybe in prep for his presidential bid.

Kelly Ripa

The Live with Kelly and Michael star has a cheerleading past and a mean perm past!


Pharrell Williams

This man has somehow straddled the space between megastar and kept his cool with the outcasts and the geeks. I have no idea how he does it but he had the cool back in school too!

He graduated from Princess Anne High School and can you believe is now 40 years old!


Pharrell Williams + i am OTHER: One of Pharrell’s many projects i am OTHER is his media led You Tube channel aimed at thinkings, outsiders and outcasts.

Pharrell Williams + Styled to Rock: He will also be a mentor on the upcoming style related reality TV show.

Joe Biden

Running and winning student bosy class president and playing football the aspiring politician was a popular guy in the Archmere Academy class of ’61.


Mariah Carey

A long and respected career lay ahead for this girl from Harborfields High School with her awesome hair!


Mariah Carey lip-sync? – Did Carey lip-sync on her latest Idol performance?

Anthony Bourdain

Anthony Bourdain‘s Parts Unknown takes us around the world sampling foods with the brash and bold chef. He is a hard person to like at times but you tune in anyway! People love a bad boy though and his Dwight-Englewood School shows him looking like a rebel even back then! Of course he is a very highly regarded chef graduating from the Culinary Institute of America.

Awesome hair!

Anthony Bourdain + Andy Cohen + Top Chef New Orleans: It seems the two are having a Twitter spat right now!

The Prophets of Smoked Meat: A Journey Through Texas Barbecue – Andy’s latest book.

I guess those photos were not that bad! It’s all about the hair really and it really changes over times so becomes the stand out thing!

How was your high school photo?
