It’s a fact that no matter where we look, we can always catch a glimpse of our favorite celebrities. Whether it be on television, movies, or online, you can guarantee that the faces of famous stars will be there. Then again, they’re also human beings who live normal lives behind the scenes.

Not every photo we see of these celebrities mirror their day-to-day activities. If you know where to look, you’ll find a treasure trove of candid moments some celebrities have. We’ve managed to gather a bunch of them. Take a look!

Bruce Lee

We all know the late Bruce Lee as a famous celebrity and martial arts instructor. During the span of his career, we’ve all seen photos of him in a fighting pose or even in the middle of the action.

However, not many of us even thought about the other side of Bruce Lee — the gentle and loving family man. In this rare photo, you will see this amazing actor posing in front of the camera with his wife and kids, giving us a glimpse of Lee’s life behind the scenes.

Frank Sinatra And Ringo

Frank Sinatra was perhaps one of the most famous stars in history. Creating hit songs such as My Way and Come Fly With Me, everyone’s attention was definitely fixed on the singer. Most of his career was spent singing for an audience, but in reality, he relishes the moments he gets to spend on his own.

Here he is having some not-so-alone time with his dog Ringo at his Palm Springs home. Now, that’s some company anyone would love to have.

Steve Buscemi

Many celebrities started their careers when they were still little kids but for the famous Hollywood star Steve Buscemi, he didn’t even realize that he was celebrity material until he was an adult. Buscemi was a New York City firefighter from 1980 to 1984.

By 1985, he made his film debut in the movie he Way It Is, directed by Eric Mitchell. His biggest role didn’t arrive until the year 1992 when he starred in the Quentin Tarantino film Reservoir Dogs.

George Clooney

George Clooney is one of the biggest and most successful actors in Hollywood today, there’s no doubt about that. Like other famous celebrities, Clooney spent most of his time filming new movies or attending big events in Hollywood.

We bet that sometimes, he misses the good old days where he got to spend time with his family, just like he did in this photo. You can see the actor here as a little boy having a great time with his father, mother, and sister.

Jane Fonda

Most people would think of Jane Fonda as a celebrity only. Being the daughter of a famous actor, of course, Fonda would naturally follow suit. But what many people didn’t know is that the actress is more than just a Hollywood celebrity.

When she was a young lady, she spent a great deal of her time speaking out against the Vietnam War. She even made a visit to Hanoi to see firsthand the war situation with the Vietnamese as pictured here.

Vin Diesel

Everyone who knows their Hollywood A to Zs is definitely familiar with Vin Diesel. For those who don’t know who he is, he’s only one of the most celebrated actors in the film industry. He has starred in numerous films, but his most noteworthy performance is in the Fast and the Furious film franchise where he starred alongside the late Paul Walker.

Although the two have shared a brotherly bond, there’s, in fact, another Paul in Vin Diesel’s life, his very own twin brother Paul Sinclair. Here they are as kids. You can clearly see how different the two of them are.

Elizabeth Montgomery

As the star of the hit television show Bewitched, Elizabeth Montgomery won our hearts over with her trademark nose twitch every time she would cast a spell on the sitcom. Her pretty face and praiseworthy talent in acting opened many opportunities for her in the film industry.

Unfortunately, the once shining star succumbed to colon cancer in 1995. All that’s left of Montgomery is her legacy in Bewitched and the stolen moments she got to spend behind the scenes, such as the one in this photo.

Leonardo DiCaprio

Any woman would agree that Leonardo DiCaprio is perhaps the hottest guy they have ever laid their eyes on. It would be the ultimate dream for any lady in her right mind to see this talented actor in person, but it would be such an honor to get to kiss him.

Lucky for his leading ladies, they already had the chance to do so. For the rest of us, we can only hope to be able to get near him. It’s photos like this one of the young Hollywood star that sweep us off our feet.

Robert De Niro

When someone mentions Robert De Niro, they would automatically envision a good-looking old guy who has received several awards and nominations throughout the duration of his acting career. And so, many people end up surprised when they’re told that the young boy in this photo is not a nephew or a grandson of the actor but is actually the actor himself.

This photo of De Niro was taken in 1950 when he probably still had no idea that he would become one of Hollywood’s greatest stars.

Dwayne Johnson

Even though he isn’t as buff in this photo as he is now, not to mention having a full head of hair, we bet you can still recognize Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson from a mile away. He was only 15 years old when this photo was taken, but you can clearly see that he already has the making of a WWE superstar.

In order to become one of the most iconic wrestlers to ever grace the WWE wrestling ring, The Rock spent eight years in training. Clearly, the time he spent doing so eventually paid off.

Brad Pitt

It must be so surreal for any person to see an A-list Hollywood star before their glory days. We’ve become so used to seeing different actors walking down the red carpet that getting a glimpse of their old normal selves is a bit strange yet satisfying.

As such, one director, who remains unnamed, shared a few audition footage of famous actors before they even became famous. Here’s one of Brad Pitt as he auditioned for 1991’s “Backdraft”. One might think he was able to easily bag the role, but the part was actually given to William Baldwin.

Diana, Princess of Wales

When she married Prince Charles, Lady Diana Spencer, or more commonly known as Princess Diana, spent the rest of her days under the watchful eye of the media. Even during the days leading up to her passing, the paparazzi were there watching her every move. Luckily for the Princess of Wales, only a fraction of her life was spent under surveillance.

As a young girl, Lady Diana was said to have been the quiet type, however, she didn’t shy away from the camera. One quick search of her name and you’ll see dozens of photos of her when she was just a child.

Richard Gere

Those who have watched the movie Pretty Woman might be familiar with Richard Gere’s scene where he was playing the piano at the hotel lobby before Julia Roberts walks in and completely distracts him. We bet most of you are wondering if that scene was edited to make it look like Gere actually knew how to play the piano, but in reality, he really is musically inclined.

In this photo, we can see a young Richard Gere practicing piano at his home in 1978. Before he became a big Hollywood celebrity, the actor spent most of his time composing music.

Paul McCartney, John Lennon & George Harrison

While The Beatles enjoyed immense fame and success due to their legendary and catchy songs, they weren’t always famous. In fact, they started out as a group of humble young men who performed in different small gigs such as weddings.

Here are Paul McCartney, John Lennon, and George Harrison making some music during a wedding reception in 1958. If you’re wondering where Ringo Starr is, he actually joined the band at a later time in 1962 as the replacement of Pete Best.

Tobey Maguire And Leonardo Dicaprio

It’s often rare to see childhood friends becoming famous at the same time as Hollywood actors. Two of the rare celebs who knew each other as kids were Tobey Maguire and Leonardo Dicaprio.

Before they became Hollywood’s best actors, the two were just kids who shared a few things in common. The actors met when they were just 12 years old during an audition in the late ’80s. Luckily, they remained good friends even after they rose to fame as celebrities.

Matt Damon

Who knew that this little boy with a sweet smile would one day end up raking in countless awards and nominations for his performances in various big screen films? We’re pretty sure that no one could have done so, but we’re glad that the cute boy in this photo is Matt Damon.

Born in 1970, Damon is considered one of the highest-grossing actors of all time. He rose to fame in 1997 when he and his friend Ben Affleck wrote and starred in Good Will Hunting, which won them the Academy and Golden Globe awards for Best Screenplay.

Marilyn Monroe

All of us are so used to seeing photographs of the late Marilyn Monroe wearing girly dresses or posing in a lady-like manner, but never have we gotten a glimpse of the famous actress lifting weights. Like all female celebrities, the Hollywood star had to keep herself in shape if she wanted to keep herself afloat in the film industry.

During her spare time, Monroe gets up from her seat and works out like other normal human beings. Sadly, she passed away. If she were alive, we’re pretty sure she would have been in tip-top shape even at an old age.

ADVERTISEMENT

Drew Barrymore

It’s no secret that Drew Barrymore is the young girl who played the role of Elliott’s sister whom we all loved and adored in the film E.T. Fast forward to today and the once cute little girl has become one of the hottest actresses in Hollywood..

Barrymore starred in many films throughout her adult life such as Charlie’s Angels, 50 First Dates, and Never Been Kissed. From time to time though, it’s nice to look back on her humble beginnings as a child star in Tinseltown

Princess Diana And Mr. Bean

There’s no denying just how famous Rowan Atkinson truly is. To give you an idea of just how popular he is, well, you can see Princess Diana in this photo pointing to him as if saying “You!” You’ll know you truly made it as a famous actor if even royalty is familiar with your face.

In this photo, the Princess of Wales came to greet the cast of the Royal Variety show in 1984. Atkinson was at the right place during the right time. What an honor it must be to be recognized by the beloved princess.

Jack Nicholson

Often given more serious roles in the films he stars in, Jack Nicholson is actually quite a pretty laid back and funny guy in real life. In this photo, we can see him messing around in front of the camera as he puts his face against a watermelon that we can all assume he was eating.

The actor is regarded as a Hollywood legend, starring in various box office movies such as Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining and 1975’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.

Meryl Streep

It’s hard to believe that a talented actress such as Meryl Streep once had a difficult time getting into showbusiness. That’s right. Even though the multi-award-winning actress is one of the most talented and passionate actresses we know of, she once was rejected countless times when she was starting out with her acting career.

According to the actress herself, she was once rejected to star in King Kong because she wasn’t beautiful enough. This narrative spread through the Internet thanks to this photo of Streep taken by a professional photographer, Ted Thai, on the subway.

Charlie Chaplin And Albert Einstein

It may come as a surprise for many people, but Charlie Chaplin actually spent a few times with history’s smartest person, Albert Einstein. If you don’t believe us, then here’s a photo of the two men. In fact, the two of them allegedly had a short but iconic conversation with each other.

When Albert Einstein met Charlie Chaplin, Einstein said: “What I most admire about your art, is your universality. You don’t say a word, yet the world understands you!”. “ It’s true”, replied Chaplin. “But your fame is even greater: the world admires you when nobody understands what you say.” No one really knows for sure if this conversation existed, but if it did, then it must have been incredible.

Oprah

Admittedly, it wasn’t easy for black people to be someone back in the day, but it’s people like Oprah Winfrey who proves that anyone can be somebody if they work hard to get to where they want to be in life. At the start of her career on television, Winfrey was offered a job as a co-anchor on Baltimore’s WJZ-TV.

It seems as though her life was already on track until she was fired from her job after just seven months when she was told by a producer she was “unfit for television news.” If not for this experience, the world would have never known one of the most influential people in history.

ADVERTISEMENT

Madonna, Sting And Tupac

Let’s admit it, for a normal person, it’s already remarkable to get a photo of one famous celebrity, so it would already be considered extraordinary to take a picture of three legends at the same time.

Looking at this photo of Madonna, Sting, and Tupac, three of the most famous singers of all time, sitting at one table is so surreal. We’re pretty sure that this photo is quite a priceless moment and it would go down in history as one of the most spectacular pictures ever taken.

ADVERTISEMENT

Peter Dinklage

He may be famous for playing the role of Tyrion Lannister in the HBO series Game of Thrones, but before he even started his acting career, Peter Dinklage was part of a punk/rap/funk band called Whizzy. Back in the mid-nineties, the actor was the band’s co-frontman and also played the cornet.

He joined Whizzy after moving to New York after college. During his time in the band, he injured himself, which explains why he has a scar running from his neck all the way to his eyebrow, giving him that bad boy look that Tyrion is so famous for.

ADVERTISEMENT

Helena Bonham Carter

Before she ended up playing eccentric woman roles, Helena Bonham Carter, the youngest among three siblings, was more well-versed in writing than she was in acting. In fact, before she even ventured into acting, she has received no formal training of any kind. All she had with her was pure luck and a natural talent for acting.

Now, she is considered one of the greatest actors in Hollywood, giving life to characters such as Bellatrix Lestrange from Harry Potter and Mrs. Lovett in the film adaptation of the Broadway musical Sweeney Todd.

Kurt Cobain

It’s a shame that the life of the Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain was cut short. Otherwise, he would definitely be one of the most famous living rock stars of our time. Even though he’s no longer here with us, he has a huge number of fans still mourning his passing even though 27 years have already passed.

When he was still alive though, he was more than just the lead vocalist of the band, he was also a dedicated father. Here he is showing a kitten to his daughter.

Adam West (Batman) & Leonard Nemoy (Spock)

Don’t ask us how it happened, but at one point in history, Batman and Spock jammed and made music together. Not officially of course. From time to time, celebrities like to hang out with each other, just like what Adam West, who is famous for playing the role of Batman during the ‘60s, and Leonard Nimoy, best known for starring as Spock in the Star Trek franchise, did in this photo.

As you can see, the two actors had fun playing the drums. Luckily, the rare moment was caught on camera.

Morgan Freeman

Best known for his mesmerizing voice, which is often used as the voice of God in various films such as Bruce Almighty, Morgan Freeman initially turned down an acting scholarship as a young man in order to enlist in the United States Air Force.

He spent four years serving his country before he finally decided to live in Los Angeles and take acting classes. It seems as though he doesn’t just sound like God, but his noble heart makes him kind of think like God as well.

ADVERTISEMENT

Tippi Hedren And Her Pet Lion

They say that until one has learned to love an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened. Normally, we would think that this quote refers to the usual domestic pets such as cats and dogs, but the ‘60s actress Tippi Hedren might have taken things a bit too far.

Instead of caring for a dog or a cat, the mother of Melanie Griffith took into her home an actual lion. Now, many people would definitely cower in fear of this wild animal, but the actress was known to spend her days swimming with them or raiding the fridge.

ADVERTISEMENT

Matthew McConaughey

It’s easy to think that Matthew McConaughey has always been this hot and muscular man his entire life, but as it turns out, he was just like other regular guys during his youth. However, before he became a hotshot Hollywood actor, Matthew was already considered above average looking by many of his peers.

When he was still in high school, he was even voted Prom King and “Most Handsome Student” at Longview High School in Texas. It’s no wonder why he became an even more attractive guy as he grew older.

Julie Andrews And Blake Edwards

Once in our lives, we get to meet the person with whom we will spend the rest of our lives. In the case of veteran actress Julie Andrews, she had to try twice before she met the love of her life. She was first married to her childhood friend Tony Walton from 1959 until 1967, then she met director Blake Edwards shortly after.

The two got married in 1969. Sadly, they weren’t able to spend the rest of their lives together because Edwards passed away in 2010 due to complications of pneumonia. As you can see, the actress stood by her husband’s side until his very last breath.

Diane Keaton and Al Pacino

Oftentimes in the film industry, co-stars end up falling for each other, especially when the roles they play are lovers. One perfect example of reel-to-real Hollywood couples are The Godfather co-stars Diane Keaton and Al Pacino.

Sometimes though, these kinds of relationships don’t last long, and Keaton and Pacino’s real-life relationship was far from perfect. In fact, they had an on-again and off-again relationship until they finished filming The Godfather film series. We guess they were simply not meant to be.

Justin Timberlake And Ryan Gosling

It’s so nice and refreshing to see famous actors back in the days. Here we have Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake posing for a photograph as little boys. Many people didn’t know that these two celebrities go way back.

They met in 1993 when they were cast on The Mickey Mouse Club, a variety show notorious for producing some of the best stars our generation has ever seen. The two would go on to become successful in their careers, Justin in singing and Ryan in acting.

Ewan McGregor

Many Hollywood stars aren’t just good at acting but are also talented in different fields too such as Ewan McGregor. While he is a great actor, he’s an even better musician. When he was young, he was known for playing various musical instruments.

He even made his television debut playing the french horn on Grampians’ “A Touch of Music” show. You can even see part of the instrument he’s holding peeking from this photo of him as a young boy.

Pablo Picasso

There are a lot of brilliant minds that have gone down in history as some of the most iconic figures, and one of them is Pablo Picasso. As a Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist, and theatre designer, he is regarded as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century.

While he can be seen in most of his photos seriously focusing on creating one masterpiece after the other, there is a different side of him where he can be seen just enjoying his life, like in this picture.

Judy Garland

Judy Garland truly was a one of a kind actress. Famous for playing the role of Dorothy in the film The Wizard of Oz, Garland went on to star in various movies such as Meet Me in St. Louis. She has also won several awards during her acting career including an Academy Juvenile Award, a Golden Globe Award, and a Special Tony Award.

But before she soared high in Hollywood, she was part of her sisters’ group, The Gumm Sisters.

Christian Bale

Everyone knows Christian Bale as one of the Hollywood actors to portray the famous DC character, Batman, but not many people would even guess that the young boy in this photo would end up being cast in the most coveted role.

Like other young boys his age, Bale spent a lot of time playing in front of the computer. As an adult, he would go on to star in various films and become the recipient of many awards, including an Academy Award and two Golden Globes.

Clint Eastwood And Burt Reynolds

Clint Eastwood and Burt Reynolds are two of the most iconic Hollywood stars in history. Clint Eastwood was famous for starring in Spaghetti Westerns, which propelled him to fame, and Burt Reynolds was famous for starring in a number of subsequent box office hits, such as The Longest Yard.

Together, they make a legendary team. In this photo, you can see the two of them playing it up for the cameras on the set of City Heat in 1984.

Robert Downey Jr. And Sarah Jessica Parker

A lot of people might have already forgotten about it, but there was a time when Iron Man’s Robert Downey Jr. and Sex and the City’s Sarah Jessica Parker were actually a couple. From 1984 to 1991, Robert and Sarah Jessica were the hottest item in Hollywood.

The two started dating after meeting each other on the set of “Firstborn.” Sadly, they split up due to the actor’s substance abuse. In 1992, he married actress and singer Deborah Falconer after just 42 days of courting her.

Elvis Presley

It’s a known fact that Elvis Presley had to take a break from his singing career when he was drafted into the U.S. Army as a private at Fort Chaffee. Although he was a rising star during that time, no special treatment was given to The King.

In this photo, you can see the legendary singer submitting himself to a physical inspection alongside other men who were also drafted into the army. He said at one point that he shouldn’t be treated any differently and that “The Army can do anything it wants with me.”

ADVERTISEMENT

Bruce Willis

While Hollywood stars would gladly pose for photographs most of the time, there are days when they simply request the public to keep their privacy and let them enjoy a moment of silence with their loved ones.

In this photo, you can clearly see actor Bruce Willis with his then-wife Demi Moore shooing off a photographer. Most probably, the two of them were out on a date when they spotted a person who was secretly taking their photo. We can conclude that he wasn’t happy with what the person did.

Drew Barrymore And Princess Diana

At the age of 7, Drew Barrymore should have been in school working on her homework like the rest of the kids her age. But as a little girl, it was obvious that she was different from the other children due to her incredible knack for acting.

Instead of being cooped up in a classroom, Barrymore did other things, things that only a celebrity could do such as meeting the Princess of Wales and handing her a stuffed toy in the shape of E.T. We don’t know if you find this adorable, but we most certainly do.

ADVERTISEMENT

Stanley Kubrick

A lot of us know that Stanley Kubrick is quite unbeatable when it comes to directing horror films, but before he even became interested in this genre, he was first interested in photography, and he was quite good at it.

This explains why he has such an eye for detail whenever he’s directing his movies. As a young boy, Kubrick would never be caught without his camera at hand. Eventually, still photos weren’t enough for him so he decided to venture into motion pictures.

ADVERTISEMENT

Maggie Smith

Children of today would recognize Maggie Smith as the famous Professor Minerva McGonagall in the Harry Potter film series. However, her career goes way back before the Wizarding World was ever created. Smith is known for her extensive career on stage, film, and television, which began in the mid-1950s.

She has starred in numerous films such as Hedda Gabler, Virginia, The Way of the World, and Three Tall Women. In 1990, she was made a Dame by Queen Elizabeth II for her contributions to the performing arts.

Marilyn Monroe Meets Queen Elizabeth II

It’s not every day that you get to meet the Queen of England, but because of Marilyn Monroe’s fame and success as an actress, she had the opportunity to meet a lot of important people in high places.

Although her encounter with Queen Elizabeth II was just brief, it’s still an honor to be able to shake the hand of royalty. While she wasn’t anywhere near as being a close friend of the British royals, Monroe did get involved with some important people back in America.

ADVERTISEMENT

Prince

At the age of 17 years old, you can already tell that Prince was going to be a superstar. He had so much style going through his veins and he has so much musical creativity in his mind. As you can see, he can easily rock an afro hairstyle, which was what was considered in style during that time.

During the height of his career, Prince became a trendsetter himself, popularizing purple outfits thanks to his hit song Purple Rain.

ADVERTISEMENT

Elton John

Many people would definitely agree with us when we say that Elton John is one of the richest, most successful, and most powerful people in the world. He has achieved so much fame that he could practically do anything he wants to, including playing the piano while he’s onboard a plane.

Sounds impossible, but Elton John has actually accomplished such a feat back in 1974. This photo serves as proof that the famous singer was able to travel in his private jet, complete with a piano bar.

ADVERTISEMENT

Harrison Ford

In order to become a famous celebrity, a person doesn’t just need to have talent and good looks, he should also have the determination to do a great job delivering his lines and embodying the personality of the character he is playing.

This must be the reason why Harrison Ford was recognized as an exceptional actor. While most celebrities would just spend their days off relaxing, here you will see Ford reading a script for one of his film projects while he is lounging in the pool.

ADVERTISEMENT

Jerry And Ben Stiller

They say that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, and in the case of Ben Stiller, he’s definitely not so different from his comedian dad, Jerry Stiller. The father and son duo spent a great deal of time bonding together.

In this photo, you can see the two of them spending some quality time together in New York to see a Broadway show. Little did they know that Ben would turn out to be one of Hollywood’s most successful comedians. Jerry must truly be proud.

Eva Mendes And Alyssa Milano

We don’t know how Hollywood stars react to seeing throwback photos of themselves getting the autograph of famous celebrities. That is why we can only guess how Eva Mendes reacted to this photo of her, pre-Hollywood, posing for a photograph with the famous Alyssa Milano.

Taken in 1989, we can see a 15-year-old Eva queueing to meet a 17-year-old Alyssa who was starring in the US sitcom Who’s The Boss. One thing’s for sure, she must have found it quite unbelievable to be a fellow actress of the woman she once idolized.

Ozzy Osbourne And Baby Aimee

We may be familiar with Ozzy Osbourne as a heavy metal singer, but in reality, he’s also a dedicated father to his kids. While we know of his kids Kelly and Jack Osbourne who followed in his footsteps as heavy metal singers, Ozzy spent a great deal of time with his other child, Aimee.

You can see that Oxxy had a lot of photos with Aimee when she was still a baby. This is just one of the many photos he took with his baby girl.

Janet And Michael Jackson

Whether you’d like to admit it or not, it is beyond a reasonable doubt that we all terribly miss the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. Ever since his untimely passing in 2009, the music industry was left with a void due to the loss of a great star.

It was definitely hard on Michael Jackson’s fans, but it was even more difficult for his family, especially his sister Janet Jackson with whom he was very close. Here you can see the siblings as little kids posing for a photo.

Audrey Hepburn

There truly was no one else quite like Audrey Hepburn. Aside from her pretty face and talent in acting, Hepburn was also greatly involved in humanitarian and charitable causes. That doesn’t mean though that she doesn’t let down her hair once in a while.

In this photo, you can see just how silly the actress was. Throughout her career, she starred in various films, but she is best known for starring as Holly Golightly in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Michael Jackson And Lionel Richie

Without even knowing what’s going on in this photo, you’ll know instantly that something great is about to transpire since two of the most legendary musicians of all time, Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie, are sitting beside each other, discussing something which seemed important.

As it turns out, these two songwriters were in the process of making the charity song “We Are the World”. Once they were done with the music and lyrics, more than 20 million copies of the song were sold, and it became the eighth best-selling physical single of all time.

ADVERTISEMENT

Barack Obama

No one could have guessed that the little boy in this photo would one day end up being the first African American president of the most powerful country in the world. As a young boy, Barack Obama would never in his wildest dreams even think of running for the presidency, let alone winning it.

As harsh as it may sound, but most Americans don’t favor men of color such as young Barack, so he truly made history when he won over the hearts of millions of American voters.

Stephen Hawking

From an early age, Stephen Hawking already showed signs of being a genius thanks to his interest in how things around him worked. It is said that he enjoyed disassembling and reassembling various objects such as clocks to see how they functioned. True enough, he would end up being one of the most brilliant minds in the world, along the likes of Albert Einstein.

But his intelligence came with a cost as he was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or ALS, which would, later on, take his life. While he was given only two more years to live, he ended up living until 2018.

Brigitte Bardot And Pablo Picasso

For many artists, Brigitte Bardot is the luckiest woman in the world not because she is pretty and talented, but because she got to personally meet and spend time with one of the greatest painters of all time, Pablo Picasso.

When the actress met the famous painter in 1956, she was 21 and he was 74. A lot of people would think that due to the long time they spent together, Picasso must have painted Bardot at one point. Alas, he never did.

Britney Spears And Christina Aguilera

Almost all ‘90s girls know who Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera are. Ask any teenage girl during that time and they would enthusiastically tell you a thing or two about these two pop stars.

Some are team Christina while others are team Britney, but before they were pitted against each other, they were, above everything else, close friends. The two of them first started their careers in The Mickey Mouse Club. Eventually, they rose to fame due to their amazing vocals.

Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta, Harvey Keitel, And Quentin Tarantino

Pulp Fiction might just be one of the best and most iconic movies in American cinema. Thanks to the brilliant mind of Quentin Tarantino, stars such as Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta, Uma Thurman, and many more were brought together and became some of the most successful celebrities in Hollywood.

In this legendary photo, you can see Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta, Harvey Keitel, and Quentin Tarantino himself posing for a photo in between takes. Tarantino and Roger Avary took home the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for writing the movie.

Sylvester Stallone And Arnold Schwarzenegger

Sylvester Stallone And Arnold Schwarzenegger are two of the most sought-after action stars back in the day. Stallone, who was known for his iconic performance as Rocky Balboa, and Schwarzenegger, who was known for his role as The Terminator, made them super successful Hollywood actors.

Despite their serious roles, they do mess around with each other from time to time as can be seen in this photo. You can clearly see that the two actors seem to be dancing with each other with huge smiles on their faces.

Alan Rickman

Famous for portraying the famous wizard Severus Snape, Alan Rickman’s journey towards acting had a lot of twists and turns. As a young lad, he excelled at calligraphy and watercolor painting, so it came as quite a surprise that he would eventually venture into the acting industry.

When Rickman attended the Latymer Upper School in London, he became heavily involved in drama. It’s safe to say that he fell in love with acting and gave his best in all the characters he portrayed in films. Here you can see him in school in deep thought while smoking a cigarette.

Stephen King

With a sweet smile on his face, no one would have guessed that the little boy in this photo would become the greatest horror novel writer of our time. As a child, Stephen King apparently witnessed one of his friends being struck and killed by a train, which might explain why most of the stories he comes up with are often dark.

Despite this experience, the author says he has no recollection of the event whatsoever. Perhaps it was how his mind coped with the trauma of seeing his friend pass away before his very eyes.

Sean Connery

The role of James Bond has long been tied to the name of Hollywood actor Sean Connery. He became known as the first actor to portray the character of the British secret agent, and he did a good job in doing so that he continued on playing the role between 1962 and 1967 and then again in 1983 when he made his final appearance as Bond in Never Say Never Again.

As the actor to play James Bond, he enjoyed a lot of perks that the fictional character also enjoyed, such as driving a hot car like the Aston Martin DB5.
