Imagine if you could go back in time and hang out with your younger self. What would you tell yourself? We may not have access to a time machine just yet, but Dutch photoshop artist Ard Gelinck may have just created the next best thing.
Check out these photos of celebrities chilling with their younger selves. The picture of Haley Joel Osment is completely blowing my mind.
Jennifer Aniston definitely looks older than she did back in the ’90s, but don’t we all? I think she’s aged pretty well.
Jennifer Aniston will always be a ’90s icon. She gave us so much style and hair inspiration, and for that, we are so grateful. These two Jens look like they’re having a great time together. Look how far you’ve come, girl!
This photo is going to make me cry. I miss David Bowie so much. This man was way ahead of his time.
Bowie was a legend both as himself and as Ziggy Stardust. This photo shows how much he accomplished in his lifetime. Thanks for the memories, Ziggy. I hope you’re still singing “Space Oddity” somewhere out there.
Dolly Parton looks like a completely different person now. Really it’s just her hair that hasn’t changed. I mean, it was bigger before, but it’s still big and blonde now.
It’s nice to see that Dolly’s style hasn’t changed much. She’s still rocking those big plastic hoop earrings. These two kind of look like mother and daughter.
Ah, the three phases of Michael Jackson. Which era of Michael Jackson did you like best? I think nothing can beat the golden oldies. I’ll always be a sucker for the Jackson Five.
That being said, “Thriller” was its own kind of magic. Whichever version of Jackson you prefer, there’s no denying that this man was a legend.
The Boss! Bruce Springsteen just keeps getting cooler and cooler. I’m not from New Jersey, but when I hear Bruce Springsteen sing about growing up there, I’m like, yeah totally, I remember that pier and that parking lot. I totally don’t. He’s just that good.
Have you seen Springsteen’s Netflix special? If you’re into The Boss, it’s definitely worth a watch.
Haley Joel Osment
Remember this kid? Haley Joel Osment made me cry in every movie he was ever in. That scene at the end of Forrest Gump is an absolute killer, and don’t even get me started on A.I. Artificial Intelligence.
Haley Joel may not be as prolific now as he was when he was a kid, but he’s definitely made a mark on cinematic history.
Friends just wouldn’t have been the same without Matt LeBlanc, AKA Joey Tribbiani. That character gave the show some much needed comic relief.
Matt LeBlanc may not be as young as he used to be, but I think he still looks like a guy who could be a love interest on a very successful soap opera.
I don’t know about you, but I think Brad Pitt looks a lot better now than he did in his 20s. He just looks so much more distinguished and refined.
Yeah, Brad in the ’90s was hot, but he also possibly cheated on Jennifer Aniston back then. Were you team Jen or team Angie?
Lady Gaga hasn’t been in the public eye for as long as some of the other celebrities on this list, but she’s still come a long way since her “disco stick” days.
Now Lady Gaga is an Oscar-nominated actress. Who saw that coming? Definitely not me. Apparently, she wanted to be an actress before she wanted to be a pop star.
When people talk about the greatest actors who’ve ever lived, Al Pacino’s name always gets added to the conversation. Honestly, I think he’s a little bit overrated, but there’s no denying that this man has made a cultural impact.
He looks pretty good standing next to his younger self. Yeah, he’s older, but he’s lived a life.
Henry Thomas burst onto the scene when he was cast as Elliott in E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial. Since then, he’s pretty much disappeared from Hollywood.
He looks completely different now. I totally wouldn’t recognize him if I saw him walking down the street. I wonder if he still has any E.T. money left? He probably does.
Pink, or Alecia Beth Moore, as she was once known, has come a long way since she was literally five years old. Seriously, where is this picture of her as a child even from? Maybe she posted it to her own Instagram page for throwback Thursday.
She looked cute then and she looks cute now.
I think Robert DeNiro is an appropriately rated actor. In his later years he took on some subpar projects, but that doesn’t erase all the good acting work he did when he was younger.
It’s weird seeing a younger version of Robert DeNiro if you’ve only ever known him as an old guy.
Well, if you thought it wasn’t possible for Ellen to look any more like a lesbian than she did in the ’90s, you’d be wrong. Ellen has definitely figured out her personal style and I think this new look is working for her.
The crazy thing is she doesn’t look that much older than she did back in the day.
Elton John has been an icon from the moment he stepped on stage in those rose colored glasses. This man gave us so many hit songs and I am so happy that he exists.
Also, look at that full head of hair. Do you think he’s had work done? Hair plugs?
I want to go back in time and tell that little kid that he’s going to be the first black president of the United States of America one day.
I wonder if he had any idea back then about what was to come. I guarantee you he didn’t have any idea that the president who followed him into office would be Donald Trump.
Justin Timberlake looks so much better now than he did when his hair literally looked like dry ramen noodles.
Now Justin is a married man, he’s a father, and he’s still a working actor and musician. Mr. Timberlake has come a long way. I wonder what he’ll look like in another 20 years.
People seem to think that Rob Lowe doesn’t age, but I think this photo is clear proof that he has, in fact, gotten older. I do also think that he looks better now than he did when he was younger.
The salt and pepper look is really working for him.
Daniel Radcliffe has grown up before our eyes. We first fell in love with him in the first Harry Potter movie, and he’s made some pretty great career choices in recent years.
Has anybody seen Swiss Army Man? That is a super weird movie, but I highly recommend it if you’re into that sort of thing.
Ed Sheeran was a really cute kid. Do you think he had the voice of an angel back then too? Or is puberty responsible for his glorious singing voice?
Little red headed kids are the cutest kids. Don’t @ me on this. Ed Sheeran was always a cutie. He and his wife are going to have the cutest babies.
