Gwyneth Paltrow Yearbook Photo: Actress Went Through Awkward Stage, Wore Braces (PHOTO)

It's hard to believe that picture-perfect Gwyneth Paltrow ever went through an awkward stage.

Thankfully, we've got the yearbook photos to prove it!

Indeed, before Shakespeare in Love, her marriage to Coldplay hubby Chris Martin, and her multitude of low-carb cookbooks and lifestyle guides, Paltrow was just like the rest of us, sporting braces and making a silly face for her 1997 yearbook photo.

A few years later, in 1999, it looks like Gwynnie went through a rebellious stage; that yearbook photo shows the Oscar-winning actress in a biker jacket, hoop earrings, and cheekily blowing bubblegum.

Gwyneth isn't the only star to have undergone a dramatic style transformation since her high school days. Was Megan Fox always so foxy? Would you recognize Blake Lively from just a few years ago? Our very own Avril Lavigne has certainly come a long way from her suburban roots in Napanee.
