From Dud to Stud

Sure, they're sizzling and sexy now – but stars such as Jim Carrey, Ricky Martin and Cuba Gooding Jr. weren't always so hunky. Check them out before they were swoon-worthy, and see just how far they've come.


Jim Carrey (left, in 1985) used to be known mostly for his flamboyant humor and extreme facial contortions. Though Carrey (right, in London in June) is still quite the funny man, he has shown a softer side onscreen in movies such as 1999's Man on the Moon and 2001's The Majestic, beefed up his bod and landed a series of babes – most recently, Danish model Betina Holte.
