High-school yearbook photos are traditionally embarrassing, and future celebrities are no exception. Judging from THEIR photos, taken back before stylists and makeup artists, they once looked as geeky and awkward as the rest of us. (Well, except for Angelina Jolie. Judging from HER high-school yearbook photo, she was ALWAYS Angelina Jolie.)

To make us feel better about ourselves, we've assembled a yearbook of 26 sci-fi stars from the days before they went supernova. Click on the image below to view it full size.

How many of them can you recognize without peeking at the captions?
