When we were children, we all had that dorky, awkward phase. Some of us are still in that phase, and others grew out of it and had major glow-ups (AKA puberty did them right).
A glow-up is a complete transformation of a person to where they look completely different. Most of the time their looks “glow-up” or improve to a point where you never thought they would be your next crush.
Hollywood has seen a lot of glow-ups, especially with the younger generations. Here are the top 5 mus see Hollywood Glow-Ups.
Celebrity Glow-Ups – Chris Pratt
If you watched Parks & Recreation or the movie Bride Wars, you would remember that Pratt was a chubby, funny guy. Flash forward to Jurassic World, Guardians of the Galaxy, etc. and that funny guy is funny and good-looking. He gained muscle, confidence, and is one of the biggest actors on screen today.
Celebrity Glow-Ups – Ariana Grande
Before Grande was a chart-topping singer, she had many roles in children’s shows. She starred in Victorious, Sam & Cat, and appeared in an episode of iCarly. I think they had a pretty significant glow-up. If you showed me a picture of her when she was younger, with the bright red hair, child-like face, etc., it might take a bit to figure out who it was. Although, I wasn’t there to see her grow up, many people were and to them she might have just went through puberty.
The Sprouse Twins
Cole and Dylan Sprouse were everyone’s favorite twins. They are best known for playing the leading roles in The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. From Friends, to both the Suite Life series, to now grown adults, the twins are the latest American Heartthrobs. Cole steals the screen in Riverdale.
Do you remember Josh Peck from Drake & Josh, Snow Day, and so much more? If you didn’t keep up with the latest pop culture news, you may not recognize Peck today. He lost the lisp, the weight, and became every girl’s new celebrity crush. One we never saw coming.
Many people know him as Neville Longbottom. Lewis starred in all 8 Harry Potter films and was the shy, dorky kid who no one really paid attention to. Then around the last movie (“Deathly Hallows”), Lewis started to draw attention to the world when he posed for Attitude magazine in his underwear. People started to realize that he wasn’t the crooked-tooth, chubby child anymore. In fact, in the last movie, he wore padding and had fake teeth. Fans were too busy crushing on Draco and Harry to realize there was another man who would steal your heart.
Honorable mentions include Brendon Urie, Nick Jonas, Zac Efron, Emma Watson, and Zendaya.
