Even the most gorgeous celebrities went through an awkward adolescent phase – some had cringe-worthy hairstyles, some spent half of their teenage years in not-so-cool braces, some endured agonising acne problems, and some had to deal with a bit – or a lot – of prepubescent fat.
These 11 Hollywood, Hallyu and local stars are no exception to the latter, but they’ve also managed to swap the flab for fabulousness (but not without a lot of hard work, of course).
Now, please excuse us as we plan our next trip to the gym.
