Then and Now: 19 Most Loved Celebrities In The Late ’90s

Things were quite different back in the ‘90s. Teenagers in this period had rooms filled with posters, CDs, DVDs, and other merchandise, which is still a norm today. Yet somehow, we still feel nostalgic whenever we think about it. The youngsters would often hang out at the mall, play tag, and try to dress like their favorite idols. Girls would copy the style of Jennifer Lopez, Drew Barrymore, Natalie Portman, and the like. And the boys? Well, they would consider actors like Brad Pitt, and Brendan Fraser as their role models, as these stars made some huge hits in the ‘90s.

All of this happened in the ‘90s when these young stars were either just starting out or already well-known around the world. And they’ve changed a lot since then, to the point where they’re almost unrecognizable.

Let’s take a trip back to the past and remember what some of our favorite stars looked like in previous decades. Today, we’ve compiled a “Then and now” list of 19 celebrities, between 1999 and today to make the comparison. Take a look at their astounding changes below.
