Hollywood Stars Get Nostalgic With Throwback Photos For #OldHeadshotDay

Some of them got really creative.

Unsurprisingly, the Internet has found an excuse to dig up and post throwback photos—on a Sunday as opposed to a Thursday!—through a social media event called #OldHeadshotDay. We’re not quite sure of the origin of this day, but we just sat back and watched as Hollywood celebrities publicized their adorable, sometimes awkward, headshot photos on Instagram and Twitter. Today, we’re reveling in the wave of nostalgia, courtesy of our favorite celebrities.

Stars like Reese Witherspoon, Viola Davis, Ben Stiller, and Gerard Butler shared photos of their younger selves.

I was feeling myself during this shoot. #OldHeadshotDay

Child stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Emma Watson, and Maureen McCormick revived their childhood photos.

Ben Affleck and David Arquette teased friends, Matt Damon and Matthew McConaughey, by posting their old photos.


Not my #oldheadshotday but it is of the king MM

Sarah Michelle Gellar quipped her photos were so dated that they were in black and white.

Melissa McCarthy's caption probably takes the prize for funniest post.

Broadway star Lea Salonga joined in on the fun and shared this cute photo of her as a child.


This isn’t the first, but it’s as far back as I could find! #oldheadshotday

Our personal favorite was Modern Family star Sarah Hyland's headshot, which she juxtaposed with a picture of Prince George.

Serving Prince George looks since ‘95... am I a royal now?? #firstheadshot
