A Collection of Celebrity Commercials from Before They Were Famous

It’s tough to break into acting, but one way that a lot of Hollywood stars got their start was in commercials. It might have been the way to go then, but looking back now, it’s kind of hilarious to see them slinging products when they were teens or kids.

This list includes everyone from A-listers to TV stars, and products ranging from Pringles to Mylanta. It took me a while to track these down, but if you know of any more I’m missing, I’d be happy to amend the list with your finds. I’m sure there are a ton more out there, it can just be tough to know where to looks.

Enjoy the ones I’ve found so far, and keep in mind when watching commercials today, that someday that annoying kid from the Toyota commercials might be our next big movie star.
