Celebrity Flashback: New Childhood Photos of a Young Brad Pitt!
Curious about what uber-star Brad Pitt looked like when he was 12? Check out these pics from his childhood!
You know how sometimes, you get so used to how a celebrity looks today that when you go back and watch one of their earlier movies, all you can see is how young they look? Well, believe you me, early movies have nothing on childhood photos.
Case in point: Brad Pitt. Brad has aged phenomenally well, and these days, we’re pretty used to his hunky 48-year-old appearance. Go back and watch Thelma & Louise, which was made in 1991 when Brad was just 28, and your brain will have a little bit of a freakout. Check out these photos recently acquired by Celebuzz, however, and your brain will have a major freakout.
According to Celebuzz, this veritable treasure trove of photographs were obtained by an old friend of Brad’s named Jeff Wingo, who found them in his drawer. Some of the pics are from Brad’s high school years—and some of them are from when he was just 12 years old. Want to take a look? Here you go!
Here he is in a school portrait, rocking what looks like a brown sweater-vest and a blond pudding bowl haircut:
And here he is in his baseball uniform:
Here’s a family photo featuring Brad, mom Jane, dad William, and younger siblings Doug and Julie:
And here he is just hanging out, Pepsi in hand:
Talk about a blast from the past! And, perhaps, a glimpse of the future: Celebuzz pointed out that little Brad looks rather a lot like his daughter Shiloh looks today—and we have to say, we agree (who knew that he was so, SO blond?). Can you see the beginnings of the star he would eventually grow up to be?
