Zac Efron, Taylor Lautner and Justin Bieber are three of the hottest guys in Hollywood, but they weren’t always that way! In order to fully appreciate the present-day hotness of some of our favorite men, HollywoodLife.com is taking a look back at their early days in the biz — and you won’t believe your eyes when you see how much some of them have grown!
Hottest Celebrity Bodies — Zac Efron & More Shocking Transformations
When Zac Efron decided to leave his High School Musical days behind him, he really committed to it. The mop-topped, basketball-playing crooner has morphed into a leading man with one of the most envied careers — not to mention bodies — in Young Hollywood today. We wouldn’t mind being one of his Neighbors.
One of our favorite parts about watching the Twilight movies all the way through is witnessing Taylor’s evolution from wolf-next-door to full-blown leader of the pack. With every new film, Taylor managed to top himself, until he was basically the man of our dreams — though, sadly, not Bella’s. Then again, maybe it’s a good thing she didn’t end up choosing him; now we can have him all to ourselves!
Justin Bieber may be making some questionable decisions these days — let’s be real, you don’t get arrested for making good choices — there’s one thing nobody can question: The Biebs is all grown up! Shirtless Instagram selfies have become almost a daily occurrence at this point, and trust us, we’re not complaining. It feels like Justin transformed into a man overnight, and we’re looking forward to the day when his personality catches up to his looks.
We nearly had a heart attack when Nick Jonas posted a shirtless selfie on Instagram, proudly showing that it’s possible to overcome Diabetes. The youngest of the JoBros — Bonus Jonas Frankie not included, of course — Nick has always been the broodiest, and now he’s got a smokin’ hot body to match! Is it any wonder he’ll soon be playing an MMA fighter on a new DirecTV series? Swoon!
There’s nothing “lil” about the man formerly known as Lil Romeo. He now goes by his real name, Romeo Miller, and we can’t take our eyes off of him. While we do feel a little weird about that baby face — he still looks like he did during his Nickelodeon days — the son of rapper Master P is definitely all man.
Jeremy Gilbert may feel like everyone’s surrogate baby brother on The Vampire Diaries, but after five seasons, it’s impossible to ignore how insanely hot Steven R. McQueen has gotten. And thankfully, the producers are fully aware, incorporating his progressively bulky body into the show’s plot — like all of season four, for example. Needless to say, we’ll have that scene of him ripping his shirt off on repeat in our minds forever and ever.
When you stare — we mean look casually — at Teen Wolf‘s Tyler Hoechlin, it’s hard to believe he wasn’t born with that body. Just look how well it fits him! But seriously, it took quite a bit of bulking for the former 7th Heaven to achieve the current physique he now possesses, and it was well worth the effort. At the risk of being simultaneously gross and lame, he makes us hungry like the wolf!
And then there’s Ryan Gosling — good old, so-hot-he-must-be-Photoshopped Ryan Gosling. Believe it or not, the Canadian actor wasn’t always the chiseled gentleman he is today, no sir. He’s come a long way from his days as a member of The Mickey Mouse Club!
