Have you ever wondered what your favorite stars looked like before they were famous? We know it’s hard to picture Young Hollywood’s biggest stars before they were walking red carpets, but before their fame, they were babies just like us! You know the saying — celebs, they’re just like us.

While a few well-known names were child stars, other got a chance to experience normal life before their fame. That being said, some never finished school due to their budding fame. Niall Horan, for example, opened up about having to drop out of school because of One Direction. Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson all graduated high school before joining the band!

“My childhood was cut short by The X Factor because One Direction took off and I never really got the chance to finish school or do my exams or anything like that,” he said in the band’s 2014 book One Direction: Who We Are. “After the first audition, I packed up everything in my life in a bag. I didn’t realize at the time that, when I was stuffing clothes into the little suitcase, that was pretty much me leaving home for good.”

Similarly, Noah Centineo decided to pursue his acting career before finishing school. “I moved across the country to become an actor, not an academic type,” the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before actor explained to The Hollywood Reporter in November 2018. “I know myself, I’m not gonna be a mathematician or a professor.”

Other stars have echoed his same sentiments when it comes to school. However, some famous faces can’t help but share photos of themselves as tiny tots. Who can forget how Taylor Swift celebrated her 30th birthday in December 2019? “WHO’S GONNA TELL HER SHE’S THIRTAY NOW,” she wrote alongside a photo of her younger self. Not to mention, the songstress even gave fans a glimpse of her days growing up on Pennsylvania for the cover art of her single “Christmas Tree Farm.”
