The next time your favorite show goes to a commercial break, stay on the couch. You may catch a glimpse of the biggest movie star, ten years before they hit it big.
It’s not as uncommon as you might think — everyone has to start somewhere, after all, including these stars. Before they were famous, they were just getting their faces out there by smiling for the camera and slinging everything from burgers and cola to hemorrhoid cream.
It’s a fascinating who’s who of modern celebrities, some of them, like Sarah Michelle Gellar and Bryan Cranston, hardly recognizable now. It’s also always entertaining to watch some advertisements of yesteryear. The celebrity cameos come as a welcome bonus.
