Ryan Gosling: Hey, girl – I was young once

 

Ryan Gosling

Before this Hottie McHotterson and meme celebrity Ryan Gosling was known around the planet for his roles in movies like 2004′s The Notebook, Ryan was a child star who appeared with Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera on Disney’s The Mickey Mouse Club:

And now, that young Canadian star is all grown up, and is a hearthrob to millions of swooning admirers, and magazine cover material, as seen in the cover of a 2011 issue of GQ magazine.

Hey, girl – do you like my tie? It’s fifty shades of grey:

January Jones’ senior year of high school

Although she’s played parts in movies ranging from Anger Management to X-Men: First Class, actress January Jones is best known for her role as Betty Draper/Betty Francis in the TV series Mad Men. Here she is — on the left, at the Emmy awards, and on the right, as her Mad Men character, Betty:

 

Before the glamour

But before she moved to New York to start her career, she was a just another student at a high school in South Dakota. We got our hands on a couple copies of her class yearbooks, and found some pictures for you.

These photos of January Jones were taken during 1995 and 1996 — her senior year — at Theodore Roosevelt High School in Sioux Falls. And as you can see, she didn’t blossom after high school… the girl was apparently gorgeous from birth.

The Tiger (Woods) that roared

The phrase “so-and-so needs no introduction” is really trite and overused, but really — Eldrick Tont “Tiger” Woods really doesn’t need any introduction, does he?

Whether it’s because of the (as of this writing, March, 2012) 14 professional major golf championships and 72 career PGA Tour wins on his resume, his $96 million some-odd career earnings, his glut of PGA Tour records (most of which begin with “youngest to” and “fastest to”), his legendary drive, his endorsements, and so on, you know who he is.

Of course, there’s that little incident where he crashed his Escalade into a fire hydrant and the whole bit about being grossly unfaithful to his now ex-wife.

But we’re professionals here, so forget I said that. Even if it is where you know him from, the man is a golfer — and one of the greatest to have ever lived.

But did you know that long before the green jackets, the Nike endorsement worth more than the GDP of some small European countries, and before the crashed SUVs, he looked like this?

Jeri Ryan: From Kentucky to outer space

She was Tara Cole on Leverage and Ronnie Cooke on Boston Public, and now plays Dr Kate Murphy on Body of Proof… but to legions of fans, Jeri Ryan will be best remembered for her role on Star Trek: Voyager as Seven of Nine:

But long before the skintight spandex of the 24th century, and before she was married for eight years to politician Jack Ryan, she was Jeri Zimmermann — a pretty 1986 graduate of Lone Oak High School in Paducah, Kentucky:
