Celebrity Transformations: Started In Their Youth, Now They’re Here!

We’ve all heard that nothing in life is constant. The truth is that change is the only real constant in the world. Everything and everyone we know is subjected to change in their lives, even those we consider untouchable. Hence, although it may be shocking, it is not surprising when even our favorite celebrities change.

They can grow, flourish, and transform just like the rest of us. The stars you thought you could recognize in a crowded room may look completely different now. So, to keep you up-to-date on your favs, we’ve compiled a list of 60 celebrities that have gone through drastic transformations.

John Travolta – Age 67

John Travolta appeared on the big screen in the instant classic Grease when he was just 24 years old, and the iconic role of Danny Zuko made him a household name. He was also loved for his portrayal of heroin-shooting hitman Vincent Vega on Pulp Fiction.

Nowadays, the 67-year-old sports a shaved head, which Pitbull convinced him to get, and has a trimmed beard. Sadly, Travolta lost his beloved wife, Kelly Preston, due to cancer in 2020. The two have been married since 1991 and welcomed three kids into the world.


Connie Stevens – Age 83

Time is the ultimate harbinger of change and our favorite actress, Connie Stevens, was not immune to it. The Hawaiian Eye star was all smooth skin, shiny hair, straight back, and spry physique, and that is how we continue to remember her. She was then in her 20s, so her drastically changed appearance makes her almost unrecognizable.

The fluffy white locks, the walking aid, and the petite frame all contribute to the image of an adorable 83-year-old woman that Stevens has become. She has retired from acting now, but we love to see her whenever we can.

Haley Joel Osment – Age 33

Haley Joel Osment was inarguably one of the most talented child actors to ever come out of Hollywood. His chubby little face, piercing blue eyes, floppy brown hair, and soft voice broke all our hearts in movies like The Sixth Sense.

The Academy Award-nominated star’s memorable roles made sure that the image of the sad little boy never changes in our heads. So imagine our surprise when we saw that child as a fully grown man, with a lush beard, in works like the Netflix show The Kominsky Method. Well, Osment is already 33 years old, so all the change is understandable.


Taylor Momsen – Age 28

Since starting her career with the 2000’s film How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Taylor Momsen eventually shot to fame as Jenny Humphrey in the TV sensation Gossip Girl. She may have gotten her breakthrough role as a 14-year-old blond girl with chubby cheeks, a cute smile, and the girl next door vibe, but she did not stay in the lane that was created for her.

Momsen changed her career back in 2009 and became the frontwoman for the band The Pretty Reckless. Her now bleach blond hair and often dark eye make-up practically make her unrecognizable. You can now catch her changed look in the 2021 series Paltrocast with Darren Paltrowitz.


Kylie Jenner – Age 24

The Kardashian-Jenner clan is often appraised as human shapeshifters due to their make-up skills and (alleged) cosmetic procedures. The youngest of the sisters, Kylie Jenner, had the most famous transformation of them all. When we think of her now, no one recalls the preteen girl with thin lips, bangs, and black painted waterline.

This particular Jenner rebranded drastically in her late teens, with lip fillers and eyebrow lifts that started internet challenges and jumpstarted her cosmetic company. Now, the 24-year-old is expecting her second baby with rapper Travis Scott, who is also the father of her first child, Stormi.


Priscilla Presley – Age 76

The young 14-year-old girl that graced the public eye when the 24-year-old Elvis Presley took an interest in her is now a fully grown woman. When we hear Priscilla Presley’s name, we remember her as the starry-eyed young lady with winged liner and a backward bouffant hairstyle.

So, to see the 76-year-old now with red hair and multiple cosmetic procedures is a shock to the memory centers of our brains; that is not to say that she isn’t still as beautiful as the day Elvis married her. You can see more of her in the 2018 documentary Elvis Presley: The Searcher.
