By now, your social media feeds have probably been all about the infamous #10YearChallenge. After days of admiring how well celebrities have aged, we began to wonder what if the challenge went back 20 or 30 years? Now that’s when you really see a difference. It gives us a nostalgic throwback that says, “let’s remember the good old days when series, novelas and movies were filled with music and intense stares at the cameras…”
Now that you know who our favorite throwback celebrities are, let’s see if you recognize some of their earlier work.
