They’ve all left a mark on this planet, inspired us, and changed the world for the better (or worse). Some are not here with us, and some are still thriving. We had always wondered how they looked when they were younger. Curiosity caught the attention of many as it caught mine to find the faces of these historical figures as children. It baffles the mind how as young children or youth, they had no idea they would change the world the way they have. Whether they discovered the formula that allowed us to find a cure for an illness or invented the vehicle that got the first man on the moon, these historical figures have a place in human history and the evolution of humankind, and we salute them for their efforts. Now let’s meet their younger selves.
30. You Talkin’ To Me Bobby Milk?
One of the most famous lines from the movie Taxi was Robert De Niro’s “You talkin’ to me?” and who could have figured that it was not on the script at all. He has made some of the most iconic movies out there like The Godfather. He auditioned for many different roles in The Godfather and we all thank the producers for choosing the right one for him.
His childhood nickname was Bobby Milk due to his pale complexion and the kids of his neighborhood claimed he was strange as milk. So it stuck. Who would have known that such a great actor would have his acting debut in a school play as the cowardly lion of The Wizard of Oz.
