A fun look at yearbook photos of the Oscar nominees

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

The Academy Awards are this weekend, and ABCnews.com decided to have a little fun by creating an image gallery with old yearbook photos of this year’s nominees.

Who was a cheerleader in high school? Who was on the soccer team? Who said they wanted to be “a preacher?”

It’s pretty fun to look back at the yearbook photos of these famous actors and actresses now, and see who looks the same, and who looks surprisingly different.
