It may seem as if they exist in a wholly different universe, but even celebrities attended middle school and high school.

Seriously! It's true! Remember these celebrity prom photos that really must be seen to be believed?

Now, to further drive home the point that even a global UNICEF ambassador such as Angelina Jolie, and even an amateur sex tape star such as Kim Kardashian, have something in common with regular folks, we've comprised a gallery of celebrity yearbook pictures.

While some actresses look pretty much the same (we'd know Jolie's pouty lips anywhere!), the changes in others from their teenage years until now is remarkable.

Like the ninth star listed below, for instance!

If we didn't give you his name, you may not even recognize him! Click around to see what we mean and to whom we're referring:

The countdown until the Magic Mike 2 premiere is on, as legions of fans of the original smash hit movie keep Channing all over their Tatums in anticipation.

Most Magic Mike fans know this was the semi-autobiographical story of Channing Tatum's days as a stripper. Well, he was far alone in that line of work:

Channing Tatum
"Magic Mike" wasn't the loosely autobiographical story of Channing Tatum for nothing! He got his start as a stripper.

No, Tatum's pole-dancing past isn't unique. Stripping is one way many of today's famous faces got their start, paying their bills prior to achieving fame.

Some of them went on to become Hollywood A-listers, and some of them went on to be, well, sort of crazy people who are famous for no discernible reason. 

Check out 21 stars who used to be strippers above and see who falls into which category. Some of these former dancers may really surprise you, too.

And then there are stars who took it to another level. Yes, the celebrities who used to be porn stars ... those are surprising for even more obvious reasons:

File this under "hilarious if true."

The National Enquirer claims that Brad Pitt is a firm believer in the supernatural, and has an on-call psychic who's ready to help him with tough life decisions 24/7.

Angie and Brad

Brad reportedly believes his "spiritual guru" - 54-year-old Ron Bard - is a genuine clairvoyant who can accurately predict the future.

Well, we wonder if Ronnie saw this one coming -  sources say that Angelina Jolie has declared that before she and Pitt can get married this fall, Brad needs to dump the psychic and remove all traces of supernatural BS from his life.

But why would Angie object to Brad consulting with a fortune teller? After all, sources say Ron advised Pitt to divorce Jennifer Aniston. Shouldn't Jolie be grateful?

After nine years of dating and half-a-dozen kids, we think it's safe to say few fans expected an Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt wedding to ever really happen.

Now we know it's actually gonna go down...and we might finally have an idea of where and when:

Angie and Brad

E! News reports that Brad and Angie have set a date and picked a location. Unfortunately, that location is currently undergoing major renovations.

Pitt and Jolie have reportedly decided to the knot at their future home in the South of France, Chateau Miraval. They'd like to exchange vows this fall, but ongoing construction has forced them to keep their options open, and they may have to settle for next spring.

As you might expect from the low-key Jolie-Pitts, this won't be on over-the-top affair like the Kimye wedding:

We talk frequently about celebrity look-alikes who we swear have to be distantly related, but this set of mind blowing photos has us questioning everything.

Somewhere in a bygone era, was there a historical figure who looked JUST like us? Are we all reincarnates of others who walked the Earth ages ago?

The similarities between these 19 celebrities and their long (long) lost doppelgangers are simultaneously hilarious, eye-popping and somehow real.

From U.S. Presidents to war heroes, Popes to works of Renaissance art, and regular folks whose names we'll never know, these look-alikes will astound you.

Who knew Jay Z was a fixture of Harlem in 1939, or that Nicolas Cage fought in the Civil War? Or that Keanu Reeves really travels through time a la Bill & Ted?

Now you do, people. Now you do.

Alec Baldwin and Former President Millard Fillmore
Former U.S. President Millard Fillmore and Alec Baldwin may be from the same bloodline. Or so these photos would have you assume.

It's unexpected, and it's soul-crushing for many women around the world, but it's true:

Ryan Gosling is going to be a father. Eva Mendes is pregnant with the actor's child.

She's actually seven months along already, meaning Gosling isn't just about to join a very exclusive list... he's about to shoot straight to the very top of it!

Below, THG welcomes Gosling to the family of hunky Hollywood dads, a list that includes one fake superhero, one stud of a soccer player - and Batman!

Follwoing confirmation that Ryan Gosling will be a father, where would you rank The Notebook star among this gorgeous group you'd like to grope?

Compare. Contrast. Salivate. And decide now!

Ryan Gosling
Eva Mendes shocked the world when she announced she's expecting Ryan Gosling's baby. She also broke the heart of women everywhere.

When you're a kid, a shared love of Ninja Turtles is all it takes to forge a lifelong friendship.

Sometimes it seems like it's the same way with celebrities. Stars who have nothing in common other than wealth and fame often form bonds that baffle us plebeians.

Sure, money and power tend to break down a lot of social barriers (Mick Jagger has been knighted by the Queen of England. 'Nuff said.), but even that explanation can't help us wrap our heads around some of the stranger sets of celeb-besties:

Gwyneth Paltrow and Jay Z
Gwyneth claims she's tight with Jay. Right. We're sure they do the most gangsta yoga together.

Some of these pairings aren't so shocking when you consider their backstories (Jonah Hill has a history of stalking his A-list co-stars, so it's no surprise he latched on to Brad Pitt).

Others, we're not sure we totally believe. (Gwyneth Paltrow and Jay Z? Right, keep trying to sell us on that one, Gwinnie.)

There are many firsts on the road of life, milestones marking our existences. First day of school, first crush, first kiss, first time. And then there's the first car. 

No one wants to be the one driving the beat-up rust bucket in the parking lot, but it's YOUR rust bucket and NO ONE ELSE can make fun of it but you! 

Or it's a brand new, fully loaded BMW making you simultaneously envied and despised at school. We all know that guy/girl ... maybe you ARE that guy/girl.

Either way, it's a rite of passage, and one not skipped by our favorite celebrities. Before they had drivers, they drove themselves just like normal people.

Check out this list of 15 celebrities and their first cars, then tell us if yours was better or worse than these rides, some of which might surprise you ...

When Kim Kardashian and Kanye West got together, we gave them our best side-eye, but it didn't seem that far-fetched that people so in love with themselves and attention would gravitate toward each other.

Not so with some of the other big couples in Hollywood, particularly those of the May-December varieties where the age gap is so great one could be the other's parent.

Then there are those pairings that inspire the public collectively asking "what could they POSSIBLY have in common?" Besides fame, that is. (And likely an affinity for kink.)

Some of Hollywood's best and brightest change significant others like normal people change underwear, so it's no surprise that some couplings are pretty bizarre.

Nevertheless, here are 17 weird celebrity couples we can't even believe:

Macaulay Culkin and Mila Kunis
Before becoming Ashton Kutcher's Baby Mama, Mila Kunis dated Macaulay Culkin...for EIGHT YEARS. Speaking of Ashton...

And speaking of those (sometimes) fleeting May-December romances, check out our gallery of some celebrity couples with big age differences between them.

Happy Father's Day from The Hollywood Gossip! It's time to celebrate the man in your life who, well, gave you life. Or at least the one who helped raise you.

Hollywood is notorious for its unflattering portrayals of fathers as being bumbling and incompetent men who have no business raising babies.

In real life, there are some celebrity dads (and regular, non-celebrity dads, too) who throw that trope right out the window and proving that they really do deserve that Dad of the Year award.

From being there for preschool pickup to rearranging work schedules to handle the nightly bedtime routine to coaching little league teams, our favorite famous dads do it all and do it in style.

Join us in celebrating 15 celebrity dads we love below!

Channing Tatum
Channing Tatum is super in love with his daughter Everly. He even wore her when she was a newborn to shield her from the paparazzi AND help her stay soothed.

Brad Pitt Quotes

I'm impervious to poo, snot, urine, vomit. You can't get me. You cannot break me down.

Brad Pitt

Our seven-year-old was searching the word 'weapons' on Google the other day and ended up on some white-supremacist site. I'm sure now we're on all kinds of watch lists.
