Flashback! 20 Stars of the 80s & 90s All Grown Up (Then & Now Photos)

Michelle Williams Then & Now!

I love a bit of nostalgia, especially when it involves the eighties and nineties and all the stars that I grew up with. And you know what’s cool. They all are getting old just like me!

These teen stars have gone from goofy to glamorous (like Sarah Jessica Parker), from TV to A-list movie star (Johnny Depp) and from Dawson’s Creek to Suri’s mom (Katie Holmes). It’s pretty amazing that all these twenty stars not just survived their teenage success but have gone on to create careers that have continued, and some with amazing results (like Michelle Williams above who went from Dawson’s Creek to three different Oscar nominations). And all of these twenty teen and tween stars of the 80s and 90s? They all are in the midst of their most important role yet – that of parent.

Check out these twenty stars then and now! Who do you think has changed the most?
