We have a theory: The classier the elderly celebrity, the harder it is to imagine him or her as a teenager. For example, try to picture Maggie Smith as a high school student. Pretty hard, right? The thought of a young, wide-eyed Maggie Smith piqued our curiosity, so we went ahead and dug up teenage photos of our beloved Dame Maggie and ten of her distinguished celebrity friends. Unsurprisingly, they’re all stunning. Check ’em out after the jump, and hit the comments to lend your thoughts.
