Some celebrities have taken so long to break through that we do not know their debut, especially since the makeover artists of show business do a tremendous job of turning "the average joe" into an unrecognizable star . Not to mention that some resort to cosmetic surgery. Still others start their careers so young that when they go through their teenage years they change dramatically.

The problem is that there are traces of their less stellar beginnings ... Here are 24 celebrities who have changed a lot since their debut ...

1. Chuck Norris

Would you have recognized him in that 1980 photo? The years have changed a lot for this actor known worldwide for his role in Walker, Texas Ranger , and not only physically. Indeed, this actor who was ridiculed for his obsession with martial arts and his macho attitude is more discreet. He has also grown a lot in people's esteem thanks to all the charities he helps.

2. Uma Thurman

These 2 photos are almost 30 years apart, but what a difference! Since Pulp Fiction Uma has shot dozens of films, but remains loyal to Quentin Tarantino . On the look side, she went back to blonde and chose a more traditional and discreet style.

3. Keanu Reeves

Despite the years we still recognize his almond-shaped eyes (due to his Chinese origins), and his handsome look, but he has now opted for a more versatile style, and adopted the beard ... Probably to go with it. his discreet and rather baba cool way of life .

4. Nicolas Cage

With age he looks more and more like his uncle (Francis Ford Coppola), but he has managed to keep the silhouette of his 20 years.

5. Fergie

The Black Eyed Peas singer hasn't made a drastic change in 20 years, but makeup is now a little less flashy. She continues her singing career (in group and solo), and she now creates perfumes for a major cosmetic brand.

6. Ryan Gosling

To complete the atmosphere of Never Forget , the film that turned him into a “headliner”, Ryan Gosling had to adopt a more mature and romantic look than that of 2002. What a difference for this actor who also tries his hand at music in his spare time.

7. Brooke Shields

The youngest Vogue cover in 1980 has aged well. It is perhaps her experience as a model that has allowed her to remain one of the most beautiful women in the world ... When you know that she started her career more than 40 years ago, it gives you food for thought.

8. Antonio Banderas

A recognizable look of “Latin lover” for this Spaniard who arrived in Hollywood at the beginning of the 90s. He has come a long way since then, and has lost his hair a little, but he is still showing ...

9. Macaulay Culkin

With his new style, Macaulay Culkin would no longer be cast to play Mum's adorable toddler , I missed the plane but to play the nasty tramp who tries to rob the house! The young actor has practically disappeared for 20 years , only making media appearances for his troubles with the police. Too bad for this child who already showed a real talent at his beginnings ...

10. Mila Kunis

The little Ukrainian who arrived in the United States at 8 has changed a lot! She now projects an image worthy of her Hollywood success.

11. Alec Baldwin

A total change of look for this suburban New Yorker, gone to try his luck in Hollywood in the television series. Like his brothers, he had a great career in cinema , but his resounding divorce from actress Kim Basinger and some of his behavior had almost put an end to it. However, he is making a comeback thanks to his excellent parodies of Donald Trump since the election.

12. Courteney Cox

Since Friends , Courteney Cox has not changed much (apart from the glasses), but we forget that before becoming the girlfriend of the whole world, she made commercials, series, an appearance in a clip of Bruce Springsteen, and several films such as Ace Ventura, Detective for Dogs and Cats . She looked very different when she started out!

13. Jude Law

Always so handsome, Jude Law! It was in the 80s that this actor UK (the name comes from a Beatles song) started the theater . His great success took him to Broadway and then to Hollywood in a very short time, and has won him many awards. He is currently one of the hottest actors, and has 5 children.

14. Rihanna

Despite many personal issues , Rihanna managed to climb to the top of the world charts , releasing her debut album at age 16. The makeover of the American show biz then completely transformed it, as shown in the photo of its beginnings, where we can hardly recognize it.

15. Renee Zellweger

Rumors have been rife since the return of Bridget Jones : surgery, not surgery? Judge for yourself. Still, Renee Zellweger remains the darling of the public since her debut, and that we hope to see her again soon on the screen.

16. Bono

Bono has been on the scene for so long that we have forgotten what he looked like when he started in 1976! Would you have recognized him? The Irish musician has come a long way since his first success with U2 , but today it is more his humanitarian projects that put him in the spotlight. He was even knighted by Queen Elizabeth.

17. Catherine Zeta-Jones

A little more refinement and wrinkles, but we recognize her well ... Difficult to name her successes in the cinema, even if Catherine Jones (Zeta is in fact her middle name) is well known to the public, because it is more her look that her acting skills that impress . She is now quite low-key (rarely rotating) and is devoted to her children and her husband, Michael Douglas.

18. Colin Firth

“Monsieur Darcy” hasn't changed that much since his debut in Pride and Prejudice , in fact. The low-key English actor was slow to break into Hollywood, but the television adaptation of Jane Austen's novel made him known to the general public in an instant.

19. Sarah Jessica Parker

It was undoubtedly during the filming of Sex and the City that Sarah Jessica Parker went from ordinary brunette to fashionista sex symbol of the planet. But we forget that she started on the boards of Broadway at the age of 11 and therefore has a long career as a real actress behind her.

20. Richard Gere

There was a time when Richard Gere was the "bad boy" of American cinema , even going so far as to fight with Stallone because of a disagreement on a set. But watch him now that he's transformed into a seducer ( Pretty Woman ), and more recently a grizzled activist .

21. Jennifer Garner

Jennifer Garner's career is not exceptional, but it has gradually made its way to the top of the bill. She has been discreet since her divorce from Ben Affleck, devoting herself especially to her children, her humanitarian actions, and making films less popular than before.

22. Robert Downey, Jr.

Robert Downey, Jr. is truly a show business miracle worker  ! Having started his acting career very early (7 years), he quickly became a rising Hollywood star in the 1980s . But 15 years later, his drug problems caught up with him, ruining his career and sending him to prison . But in 2001 he regained control and reappeared in the spotlight at the top of the box office to become one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood today . Beautiful transformation!

23. Neil Patrick Harris

Neil Patrick Harris is known as the friendliest actor in America as his roles conform to his discreet and modest personality since his debut. And like the character in How I Met Your Mother, the actor is passionate about magic.

24. Kylie Minogue

Everyone remembers her frizzy debut in the '80s when only Australians saw her in countless episodes of the Neighbors series . But she quickly proved that she was more than a second-rate actress by climbing to the top of all the charts in the world , success after success . In 2005, she was discovered to have breast cancer which forced her to take a break of almost 2 years. But it is to start afresh, and she is currently preparing her 14th album  ! The little Australian, now compared to Madonna, has proven her talents.
