Not all people are equal. Some are born to be beautiful, some are average and some are just not that good looking but they make up for it with their attitude and character. Some prefer to have plastic surgery to enhance their looks and some are ugly ducklings who grow to be beautiful swans. Genes, nature and lifestyle are all factors that can contribute to how a person will look throughout their lifetime. Now let’s do something we all secretly love; checking out celebrity photos from childhood to adulthood.

1. Jennifer Lawrence

Perhaps better known as JLaw, this actress is famous for playing a young Mystique in the X-Men movies and Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games franchise. She is one fine, smart, spunky and sexy woman and most definitely one of the most popular Oscar-winning actresses. A fine and beautiful actress indeed, who is down to earth and has a great sense of humor.
