Star yearbook photos: Were any “Most Likely to Succeed”?

 
 

One of life’s great shared
injustices is the yearbook photo. We all had to get them. And — unless
they’ve somehow magically found a cure for awkwardness, geekiness
and general dorkitude since I was a teenager — most of us dreaded them.
For whatever reason, be it bad skin, bad clothes or the steadfast yet
ultimately misguided belief in the transformative properties of big
bangs, many of us look back at our school pictures and cringe. Or, at
the very least, giggle. But you know what? Celebrities had to get them too,
just like us mere mortals. Now that is what I call justice.

So, let’s play a little
game called Name That Teenager. It’ll be fun; like being back in high
school, but already knowing what everyone will look like at the class
reunion. Let the games begin:

Among them you have a Rock
star, an Alien hunter, an alphaBette and the possible next president
of the United States of America.

Give up?

Up next, a group that clearly
spared no expense on the Aqua Net.

In fact, I think a large portion
of the blame for the hole in the ozone layer can be attributed to aerosol
hairspray use by the two on the left.

Give up?

This next lot butched it up
in their formative years, or more accurately, their hair did.

Bottom
right is giving me a total Some Kind of Wonderful
flashback. God, how cute was Mary Stuart Masterson in her fingerless
gloves in that movie? But I digress.

Give up?

Finally, I bring you some possible
stumpers.

I’ll give you a hint: Three of them have almost the exact
same first name. Also, can we please savor the mad fashion genius that
is top left hand corner’s pencil motif T-shirt? Are those No. 2 pencils?
She is so ready for her SATs.

Give up?
