Celeb Flashback: 12-Year-Old Megan Fox Had Braces, Just Like Everyone Else
Before she became the smoldering star of the first couple of Transformers movies, Megan Fox had braces, just like everyone else. Awww.
Breaking news: Megan Fox had braces when she was 12 years old, just like everyone else! Okay, maybe it’s not breaking, but hey—celebrities! They’re just like us!… or something. Anyway, since we love our celeb flashbacks here at BettyConfidential, take a look at the pic above—that is, Megan on the cusp of her formative teenage years—and compare it with the one below, taken earlier this year at the Friends With Kids premiere:
“Say hello to my 12 year old self.
I encourage you to admire my citrus/copper colored highlights (thanks Sun-in!) my braces, and my ever present sunburn.
And yeah I’m brushing my eyebrows with a toothbrush in that one picture…”
For the curious, here’s “that one picture:”
While we appreciate the Sun-In quip, this flashback? It’s a little harder to see than, say, Jennifer Lawrence’s fourth grade one. This is a little bit frightening, especially considering that Megan isn’t really that much older than Jennifer (Megan is 26; Jennifer will be turning 22 in August). The former Transformers star also looks a lot happier here than she usually does these days, braces and all; I can’t help but think that she’s trying to smolder so hard all the time that she’s sort of forgotten how to smile. Four years after these shots were taken, she landed her first acting gig, and the rest, as they say…
Ah well. Hollywood does tend to change you. Unless, of course, you actually happen to be Jennifer Lawrence.
