All of us had to go through elementary school with some weird-looking features. Some of us had unusually big ears or feet, with weird teeth or hair that annoyingly found a new north every second week. As embarrassing as it is to see some of our pictures when we were younger, we feel relieved knowing that only moms will take the time to reminisce about their offspring by popping out the old photo albums and yearbooks. Unfortunately for some, yearbook pictures are considered fair game to advertise on the internet for all to see, especially if you are an A-list celeb or Hollywood star.
Jesse David Fox over at Vulture managed to dig up some old pictures of one of our favorite actors of all time, Steve Buscemi. I’m sure that Buscemi fans will not be wildly surprised by the Boardwalk Empire’s photo taken back in 6th grade. It is exactly what you would have expected to look like for a photo taken back then. I would imagine that Buscemi’s career would have taken a much different turn if Stephen King or Clive Barker got a hold of him for one of their creepy ass child centric horror movies
Fox revealed a bit of history about the picture he found for us:
“Steve Buscemi and my mom grew up in Valley Stream, Long Island, at the same time. They didn’t go to the same elementary school — Buscemi went to Clearstream; my mom went to Forest Road (where I also went years later) — but they shared a school district — District 30. As a result, they were in the same yearbook, which, fortunately, my mom kept.”
