It’s always funny to see how actors first entered the glamorous world of show-biz and how they looked before they were able to afford an army of stylists. Because everybody has to start somewhere, and that somewhere isn’t always the ideal part in a high-profile film.

A video was uploaded recently on YouTube, showing how 25 famous actors today were struggling to get noticed before they became big shot movie stars. We get to see Denzel Washington, Scarlett Johansson, Angelina Jolie, Jack Nicholson and Nicole Kidman in some of their first roles, performing in low budget movies or TV shows.

Warning! The footage is somewhat cheesy, old and I guess a bit embarrassing for the actors nowadays. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t fun to watch. Click play and enjoy!
