Can you guess which one in this picture is a very young Brad Pitt? Believe it or not, he is the blonde one in the middle, holding the ball. This is his childhood basketball team, the Cherokee Rejects, in Springfield, Missouri in 1977. Who names their basketball team "The Rejects"? Pitt has proved to be anything but a reject.
Who said that nerds can't get in a little trouble here and there? This is Bill Gates' mugshot from 1975. Look at that baby face! He was arrested for speeding and driving without a license. What a rebel! It doesn't look like this arrest mattered in the end when it comes to his career and his success.
Look at these cute little college sweethearts. This is a picture of Bill and Hillary Clinton, taken in the '70s from their Yale days. Who would know that they would go on to become "The Clintons"? And look at Bill's hair! Adorable.
This picture of Steve Buscemi was taken in 1976. During this time in his life he was actually a New York City Firefighter.

This picture was taken in 1968, when Arnold Schwarzenegger first set foot in The Big Apple. He had just emigrated to the United States and spoke very little English.

This is a picture of Michael Jordan in his college dorm in 1982. Jordan went to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and joined the basketball team soon after. He was singled out as the NCAA College Player of the Year in both 1983 and 1984.
AND THEN BECAME THE GREATEST BASKETBALL PLAYER OF ALL TIME.

This is a mugshot of Frank Sinatra taken in 1938. He was arrested for adultery and seduction. While that may seem like a crazy reason to be sentenced to jail, those two things were considered to be a crime at the time.
Well, this picture is wild. This is Robert Downey Jr. and Mike Tyson sometime in the '80s in New York City. Tyson was a friend of RDJ's father at the time and the two starred together in the movie Black & White in 1999.
