What do you think it was like to be childhood friends with John Travolta? Although we tend to think think that celebrities are so much cooler than us, their upbringing is usually pretty ordinary.
This is a photo of John Travolta in the ’70s (We’re sure you can tell by his hair.) The woman next to him went backstage after his theater show to say hi because her daughter was friends with him as a child. Cute!
Finding old photos can sometimes help you discover some family history you didn’t know about.
In this case, a woman went through her old family photos and found actor Ashton Kutcher feeding her brother a bottle as a baby. Apparently, her aunt dated Ashton back when they were teenagers and had to share.
It may be hard to believe that actor, comedian, and talk show host Jimmy Fallon was just like us back in the day, but it’s true. Before his breakout role as a cast member on SNL, Jimmy was going to high school like the rest of us.
One woman decided to share a photo of her aunt and Jimmy, letting the internet know that her aunt dated the hilarious star in high school.
Ayy! If you grew up in the 70s, you probably grew up on the popular sitcom Happy Days, and “The Fonz” may have been your favorite character.
Henry Winkler shot to fame after the show became a success, but when it first started, he was just a normal guy looking for acting work. According to the guy who posted this photo, his wife appeared to have dated Henry in the late ’70s.
Queen Latifah seems like one of the coolest people in Hollywood. She started her career as a singer, and over the years, Queen Latifah has made herself to be a successful recording artist, actress, and talk show host, earning a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2006.
This photo was shared by someone whose uncle is good friends with her from before she was famous.
How many people can say that their aunt dated Tupac? Regarded as one of the most influential rappers of all time, Tupac started out in 1990 and rose to stardom by 1994 with his album, Me Against The World.
We’re not sure what year this photo was taken, but the aunt posing looks pretty happy!
How fun is it when you find out your friends know celebrities! Zac Efron became famous after his lead role in High School Musical, and his career skyrocketed from there.
But before his Hight School Musical Days, Zac was just a regular kid, going to school like the rest of us. The woman who shared these photos found out that her friend went to school with the actor and decided to let the internet know.
Just like the last photo, we have another guy who went to school with a celebrity—only this time it’s comedian Kevin Hart. Kevin started out by performing amateur nights in his hometown, Philadelphia.
In the early 2000s, he played in several films, and the rest is history. A woman posted this picture on her social media that her brother went to high school with Kevin, and said that the high school was even featured in his movie, Laugh At My Pain!
How many people can say that someone from their family dated Jay-Z? According to this photo, someone just needed to share that their aunt dated Jay-Z years before Beyoncé came into the picture.
As a rapper, songwriter, record producer, and husband to the legendary singer Beyoncé, Jay-Z is one of the most famous people out there, but we have to remember that he used to be a normal guy just like the rest of us.
Can we first talk about Blake Shelton’s hair? While it’s definitely not a style we’d choose to for ourselves, it seems to suit him well under his wide-brimmed hat.
Blake is one of the biggest country singers to date, charting over 40 singles, and is a nine-time Grammy nominee. Someone posted on Twitter that her mom dated Blake while her aunt dated his bass player. Cool!
How exciting is it when someone in your high school grade becomes a celebrity?
In this case, someone posted a yearbook photo of actor Ansel Elgot, saying that they went to school with him. The Fault In Our Stars actor started acting in 2013 and has been rising to stardom ever since.
It’s usually pretty cool to see celebrities’ former lives before they got famous. In this photo, actor Josh Duhamel is posing for prom with his high school girlfriend.
According to Twitter, the person who shared it has a best friend whose mom went to school with Josh. Josh looks cool, but if you ask us, we’re more interested in the poofy ’80s dress that his girlfriend is wearing.
Wouldn’t you want to be friends with a famous boxing champion? Floyd Mayweather Jr. is a former professional boxer that won fifteen major world titles in the span of his 19-year career from 1996 to 2015.
And when you find out some of your family members were friends with a famous athlete, you just have to share the news on social media—especially when one of the family members is your mom.
Who remembers the show Gilligan’s Island? The TV series aired from 1964-1967 and the main character was played by actor Bob Denver.
It’s always fun to find out your family was friends with a celebrity, just like in the photo that was shared here. A guy posted on social media that his grandfather was friends with Bob and apparently went on sailing trips with him. Amazing!
