We can't believe Henry Cavill used to get bullied for being "Fat Cavill."
We have all been through that ugly duckling phase. That awkward period after we lose our charm as babies and right before we get hit by the powers of puberty is among the least exciting moments of our lives.
Celebrities, just like normal people, also went through this pre-pubescent phase. While some of these stars look incredibly cute even when they are younger, others were almost unrecognizable after puberty hit them hard.
Scroll down to see our list and find out some incredible facts about these stars.

Look at that smile! Even as a teething toddler, Julia Roberts already flashes that megawatt smile like she knew she's going to be a "Pretty Woman" when she grows up! So cute. Roberts was born in Smyrna, Georgia. Her parents co-founded the Atlanta Actors and Writers Workshop in Atlanta.
Henry Cavill hasn't always been the perfectly ripped, handsome guy we see on screen.
"I was a chubby kid," Cavill said in an interview with MensHealth. He was mostly overweight during his youth, and students at his school would mock him by calling him "Fat Cavill."
He blames his weight on eating a lot of potato chips. He eventually slimmed down when he started playing sports — specifically rugby, field hockey, and cricket.
Well, jokes on you now bully people!
Amanda Seyfried has one of the prettiest big eyes in Hollywood, and she already looks adorable even at a young age. Seyfried is mostly of German descent, with few percentages of Swiss-German, English, Scots-Irish/Northern Irish, and French ancestry.
Do you think something is a little off with little Liam's smile? Perhaps, you are right!
Liam Payne always felt like he was too serious growing up.
"I think I was a very serious child, one of those man-childs. I was a man in a child's body pretty early on," he said in an interview via Buzzfeed.
When asked what he would want to tell his younger self about being in One Direction, he said he'd tell him to "just have more fun and relax a little bit."

Only a young Nicholas Hoult could pull an awful haircut like that! Hoult appeared in the 2002 film 'About a Boy' alongside Hugh Grant.

Bad Girl Riri doesn't look so bad-ass yet in this picture. Rihanna had a hard life growing up. She used to live in a three-bedroom bungalow in Bridgetown and sold clothes with her father in a stall on the street. Her father was an alcoholic with a crack cocaine addiction.
“Even as a toddler, I learned that my mum and dad would argue when there was foil paper in the ashtray,” she said via Mirror.Uk.
