this is a very interesting quiz. i missed a lot but after i saw the names i could tell immediately who they were.
Mar 11th, 2009 at 04:33 GMT
i'm pretty sure dicaprio is the correct spelling, no?
Mar 11th, 2009 at 04:36 GMT
What an excellent idea! I'd love to see many sequels to this one. Side-note: how adorable was little Opie?!
Mar 11th, 2009 at 04:38 GMT
you spelled dicaprio wrong you owe me a point
Mar 11th, 2009 at 04:40 GMT
Another side-note: how bizarre does Sarah Jessica Parker look in that picture? Weird! It's like she's an old woman in a child's body. And is that a scar down the right side of her face?
Mar 11th, 2009 at 04:45 GMT
Fixed Leo and for good measure we re-enacted a couple of of the fight scenes from Gangs of New York here at the office.
Mar 11th, 2009 at 04:48 GMT
@MovieDynamic: She looks like she was trying out for the titular role in "Annie", but failed. And how about Jolie? That looks like a mug shot!
Mar 11th, 2009 at 04:50 GMT
Yeah, LOL! Jolie looks horrendous. And actually Parker looks like a mix between Annie and Hannibal the Cannibal. It's that weird line on the side of her face, looks like the edge of a mask.

kournikova is a little difficult to spell
Mar 11th, 2009 at 05:13 GMT
The Annie picture would be because that actress played Annie on Broadway.
Mar 11th, 2009 at 05:41 GMT
kournikova is not really believable as an athlete... did she ever achieve something in sports ? good quiz, i would like to try on a Young Celebrities II !
Mar 11th, 2009 at 05:43 GMT
Keanu Reeves looks like a girl! And Clooney looks Indian. Bjork looks the same.
Mar 11th, 2009 at 06:03 GMT
I had definite "ohhhhhh!" moments after not getting a few. I was convinced Jason Bateman was Patrick Swayze, lol.

the pictures are so small. i'd get kutcher, roberts and lopez much faster if the pictures weren't so tiny.
Mar 11th, 2009 at 06:21 GMT
the tennis racket pretty much gives it away
Mar 11th, 2009 at 06:23 GMT
Britney Spears was so adorable when she was little!
Mar 11th, 2009 at 06:34 GMT
I went through every actress I could think of trying to get Reeves...not a flattering picture for the male ego. I also like how nearly every pop-culture quiz has an Arrested Development connection (two in this case). Great quiz.
Mar 11th, 2009 at 06:42 GMT
@ LB - I too was TOTALLY convinced that Bateman was Swayze!!

Once I knew who they were, Tom Hanks is the only one who looks really different now IMO. I thought it was Tommy Lee Jones.
Mar 11th, 2009 at 06:47 GMT
@kicking222 - SJP did play Annie for 2 years on B'way. She was the first one I recognized on the quiz. I've seen that pic of Julia Roberts before and I still didn't get her - I thought it was Maureen McCormick.
Mar 11th, 2009 at 06:49 GMT
I personally think this was the best quiz yet, and I would like to see the pictures a little bigger as well. How about an young sports celebrities quiz?!! That would be awesome!
Mar 11th, 2009 at 07:53 GMT
great quiz, and me three on swayze! i also agree, maybe a mouseover enlarges a photo?
Mar 11th, 2009 at 08:17 GMT
Who ever thought of this quiz is a genius!! I laughed so hard when i saw Eminem and Cobain. More of these kind of quizzes please!
Mar 11th, 2009 at 10:53 GMT
I also thought that Jason Bateman was Swayze.
Mar 11th, 2009 at 11:23 GMT
Me fifth on thinking Bateman was Swayze. How odd... I'm thinking it's the hair, it's quite Swayze-esque :) Also missed Tom Cruise, I tried to think of "Italian actors with bad teeth". Cobain was an adorable child :)
Mar 11th, 2009 at 11:35 GMT
Jeniffer Lopez should definately be listed as actor/musician, not just actor. but awesome quiz none-the-less, would enjoy more of these.
Mar 11th, 2009 at 11:59 GMT
21/24, that Courtney Love one was hard. Best she's ever looked in her life.
Mar 11th, 2009 at 12:14 GMT
Wow, Sarah Jessica Parker was an ugly kid who turned into a hideous adult, I guess thats no coincedence. Tom Hanks looks the same now as in that picture.
Mar 11th, 2009 at 12:31 GMT
'We are the descendants of great Americans like Ron Howard and others'
Mar 11th, 2009 at 12:49 GMT
I thought Clooney was Mark Hamill
Mar 11th, 2009 at 13:37 GMT
@kania is high: red power! :p
Mar 11th, 2009 at 13:45 GMT
@mistercreek: i'm not a big kournikova fan. but i have to stick up for tennis. the idea of any professional tennis player being "not believable as an athlete" is nuts. kournikova was ranked as high as 8th in the world in singles, and won two australian opens in doubles. she is most definitely an athlete. "athlete" is the most appropriate label for her, as well, because she wouldn't have been a model without tennis.
Mar 11th, 2009 at 13:54 GMT
That was very fun and sweet. It was nice to see some of these celebrities pre-scandal.
Mar 11th, 2009 at 14:11 GMT
You gotta love Tom Hanks' hair.
Mar 11th, 2009 at 14:21 GMT
Thought Keanu Reeves was a girl
Mar 11th, 2009 at 14:38 GMT
Wow, George Clooney was a goofy-looking kid.
Mar 11th, 2009 at 14:40 GMT
Hanks and Bateman were too old in their pictures. I don't know how you guys thought that was Swayze. Also, definitely need a Young Celebs part 2. This one was way too whitebread. All you could find were MJs?
Mar 11th, 2009 at 14:56 GMT
Jason Bateman was probably acting when this picture was taken...see Hogan's Family...
Mar 11th, 2009 at 15:00 GMT
did anyone else think ashton kutcher was michael cera, or am i just an idiot
Mar 11th, 2009 at 15:01 GMT
kind of feel like mathers should count as an answer for eminem
