The rest of your life awaits and anything seems possible when you enter your twenties, especially if you’re already a star with the world at your feet. While these celebrities have enjoyed a lifetime of experiences since their 21st year, let’s turn back the clock and see what some they were doing back then (and how they looked of course).

I wounder if this was written a year ago or Jackie Burns didn't do her/his homework: Leo is 38 not 37, Charlize is 37 not 36 and Drew is 38 not 37... Maybe there are more...

Well, of course we had to see Jolie, she's always where one doesn' t want to see her, Geez, give me a chance, I just got up from a bad night, a waking nightmare...

Ashton Kutcher still looks the same, like he never grew up and he'll probably always will have that 70's show hair cut when he's 50, oh god, let's hope not!

That's too funny, Jack Nicholson's eyebrows still remain the same but I have to say he was very handsome back then.

Those two young ones  William and Harry  are still on top , and with Will becoming a father is the best, they are so handsome, I just love William and Harry/ the carrot top, lollllll. They' re bith the best two who have had their share of pain with Diana dying the way she did and the age she did. They've had their share of misery...

Mar 11, 2013 8:33PM
Jolie lost a lot of weight and Jagger is still just as ugly although now with wrinkles!
Mar 11, 2013 8:14PM
