You've never seen your favourite stars as relatable as they are right now. Why? Because all of your favourite actors, singers and models took to social media over the weekend to post hilarious throwback photos in honour of 'Old Headshot Day'.

While most of us mere mortals don't possess an old headshot, we do know what it's like to have vintage school pictures with questionable hair choices and unspeakable fashion faux pas' that still haunt our dreams.

Whether it's Modern Family star Sarah Hyland's revelation that she looked like Prince George as a child, or The Project's Lisa Wilkinson sporting a peasant blouse and thin eyebrows, you're sure to relate to some of these hilarious throwback photos.

See some of our favourites below…

Lisa Wilkinson

The Project host might be known for delivering powerful monologues in sharply tailored blazers, but back in the day she was fond of drinking cola in the local RSL while rocking a peasant blouse. How the times have changed!

Reese Witherspoon

With the same big smile and wide eyes still, it's not hard to pick that the below photo of a 10-year-old actress is Reese Witherspoon.

Georgie Parker

The iconic Australian star revealed her first headshot was taken by a friend, after she got a dramatic spiral perm at the local hairdresser.

Drew Barrymore

The actress revealed her incredibly cute old headshot reminds her of both her daughters now, 5-year-old Olive and 4-year-old Frankie.

Lynne McGranger

"Circa 350BC," the Home and Away star captioned this stunning throwback photo.

Melanie Vallejo

Clearly, Winners and Losers star Mel has never taken a bad photo in her life.

Dan McPherson

Nothing says '90s show-business like some golden highlights, a silver chain and an unbuttoned shirt. Dan McPherson scored the bad headshot trifecta with this beauty back in 1998.

Merrick Watts

He might be busy trying to score laughs on stage as a comedian nowadays, but way back in the '90s Merrick was trying his very best to be ~serious~ for the camera.

Sarah Hyland

It looks like the Modern Family star and His Royal Highness Prince George were separated at birth in her adorable old headshot.

Melissa McCarthy

The Bridesmaids actress offered up her own take on one of 2018's hottest memes, joking in the caption of her snap: "If you can't handle my scowling headshot you don't deserve my tiny cowboy hat headshot."

Gerard Butler

Somehow the Scottish star has always been dreamy, even in his awkward teen 'wild floppy hair' years.

Viola Davis

"I was feeling myself during this shoot," the How To Get Away With Murder star joked on Twitter, and we can see why. The flawless skin, her killer smile, no embarrassing features here!

Sarah Michelle Gellar

Long before she was slaying vampires, SMG was slaying headshots with fluffy Farrah Fawcett style bangs and a piercing stare.

Karlie Kloss

Unlike the rest of us, it seems Victoria's Secret model Karlie Kloss never really had an awkward phase. At just 16 years of age, she already had the natural grace and charisma to take on the runway.

Osher Günsberg

Remember back in the early 2000s when beloved The Bachelor host Osher Günsberg was named Andrew G? Yeah... It was a simpler time, filled with blonde highlights, string necklaces and graphic print 'tees.
