Can You Guess the Celebrity?

The end of the week needs a hefty dose of silly, so when you have a few minutes of quiet to yourself, scroll and laugh and cringe and remember that life doesn't have to be so serious.

There are sixteen celebrities pictured. Can you tell who they are? Answers are at the bottom.

















Aaaaand let's see how you did. 


One - Nicole Kidman.

This was a slow pitch, but I think we all need a little pick-me-up today, and seeing a very cute but very different young Nicole gives me hope for the future. It's amazing what a good makeup artist and a hair straightener will do.


Two - Victoria Beckham.

I mean, WHOA. Side pony in the house. Also she's 40 years old. Let's all feel awesome about that for a minute. She also probably hasn't eaten a cookie in ten years, so joke's on her. 


Three - Michael Douglas.

Well hello there, Mr. Jawline, welcome to our party. Young Michael looks like one of my college professors. Imagine him wearing a corduroy jacket and teaching you about Southern literature. Swoon. It's a miracle I didn't fail that class. 


Four - Keira Knightley.

She deserves two after pictures. Cute little girl. Crazy hot woman who's gotten to kiss James McAvoy. Keira for the win.


Five - Tina Fey.

Tina is my everything. My idol, my muse, my spirit animal, the weird older cousin I never had. She writes about those luscious Greek eyebrows in her book, Bossypants. Which I thought was perfection until I listened to the audiobook - read by her - and lost my mind.


Six - Demi Moore.

She's exactly the same. Her trainer's business card probably says "Specializes in the stoppage of time."


Seven - David Hasselhoff.

The Hoff. Surprisingly handsome and clean-cut as a young man. I wonder he knew of much he'd be mocked in the future.


Eight - Sean Penn.


Umm, I thought that first picture was the original inspiration for Rachel McAdams' character in Mean Girls. But no. 


Nine - Robert Downey, Jr.

Super obvious, but we all need a little RDJ in the morning. (I. LOVE. THIS. MAN.)


Ten - David Letterman.

We'll miss you, Dave. You're the best.


Eleven - Matt Lauer.

You show me a lady who wouldn't watch The Today Show with the volume off as long as Matt's on screen, and I'll show you a liar. 


Twelve - Renee Zellweger.

ALERT: These are ALL Renee Zellweger. That last photo is the most recent, and Renee said that she didn't undergo any procedures but is simply living a happy and fulfilled life. Okaaaaay...


Thirteen - Stephen Colbert.

Umm, bearded hipster hottie alert! Good luck taking over for Dave, Stephen. You inherit shoes of snark, and I believe you just might be able to fill them.


Fourteen - Vince Vaughn.

I bet he had sooo many girls crushing on him in high school. 


Fifteen - Zooey Deschanel.

There is hope, Awkard Middle School Girls. There is so much hope.


Sixteen - Joe Biden.

You GUYS. Our Vice President used to be hawt. I suddenly feel an intense rush of patriotism.

Feel better? Sometimes we need a shot of silly before we tackle the serious, and that's okay.
