These Awkward Celebrity Prom Photos Are Amazing

by : Tom Percival on : 30 Mar 2016 18:00

We’ve all got a photo we wish we could forget, but thanks to Facebook, there’s now an indestructible monument to your double chin, drunken embarrassment or unflattering clothes.

Wouldn’t life be more simple if you could be like a celebrity – prim and proper in every pic ever taken?


Well, some Internet sleuths over at Bright Side have gone out of their way to dig out some celebrity prom photos to prove that everyone looks awkward as a teenager.

But irritatingly it seems that celebs, for the most part, have always been pretty flawless. Or maybe it’s just because it’s prom.

Anyway, can you work out who these future celebs are using our fiendishly difficult clues (apologies in advance for the puns)?

Do you need a ‘Cloo’ to work out who this future A-lister is?

Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV. He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
