30 Awesome Rare Movie Star Photos

George Clooney

Surely that’s Velma from Scooby-Doo ? No, really, it's Gorgeous George from the days when he just George.

Which goes to show, there's hope for all of us.

Marilyn Meets The Queen

1957, and the Royal Premiere of The Prince And The Showgirl : a meeting between two of the era's most famous young women.

Talk about chalk and cheese, though. Her Royal Highness looks absolutely disgusted at Marilyn's full-frontal display. Unless, of course, it's envy.

Jack Nicholson

Superstar DJ, here we go.

1969 was a momentous year for rock music - Woodstock, Altamont, and Easy Rider , the film that made wicked Jack a key figure of the counter-culture. Here he is getting into character at his California home.

The Cast Of Star Wars

We'll say one thing for George Lucas. A long time ago (etc, etc), he had least had the visionary genius to cast this lot as robots, rebels, Dark Lords and Wookies.

You just woudn't get such a bizarre looking bunch headlining a blockbuster these days.

Sean Connery

The name's Body. James Body.

It might look like a grotesque Photoshop job, but Sir Sean was genuinely a competive bodybuilder in the 1950s before he thinned out his pecs (and hair) to play 007.

Jon Voight & Angelina Jolie

Three things worth observing here: 1) doesn't Angelina look just like her Dad? 2) her pouting expression has hardly changed since she was a baby; and 3) aw, how cute!

This happy snap was taken in 1977, sadly not long before Voight and Angelina's mum Marcheline Bertrand split.

Brando In The Jungle

Cast as Colonel Kurtz in Apocalypse Now , Brando demanded obscene amounts of money, turned up overweight and under-rehearsed, and mumbled his way through the shoot.

But it was his insistence on wearing a bug on his head at all times that nearly gave Francis Ford Coppola a breakdown.

John Travolta

Tired of strutting his stuff, Travolta decided to take the car...but couldn't work out how to see through the windshield.

Those weren't his feet at the beginning of Saturday Night Fever , either, you know.

Brigitte Bardot

Here's another movie star who can't quite work out what to do with her car - here, it's being used as an expensive (and easily stolen from) place to put her bag.

But let's face it, it's not the car, or Brigitte's belongings, that anybody is looking at, so she should be theft-free as long as she keeps wiggling.

Sean Penn

A rare photo? Surely that's Penn in his breakthrough role as stoner surf-dude Jeff Spicoli from 1982's Fast Times At Ridgemont High .

Yeah, but...Sean Penn smiling ? Even after Milk , that's still kind of rare.
