List Rules Upvote the most cringe-worthy celeb pictures

You know them: the hottest men on the planet. Clooney, Pitt, Beckham. The men who make hearts race worldwide. These top choices for celebrity crushes are generally good looking guys who made some bad decisions at some point in their life or career. The scary part is these aren't all pictures from before they were famous. Some of the awful celebrity photos on this list of pictures that will make you hate your celebrity crush were taken when these hot guys were already super famous (but not rich enough to hire a stylist, apparently).

The problems with these bad celebrity photos are varied. From the bad styling choices of men who generally have the best celebrity hair to the poor fashion choices, there are some ugly celeb pictures in this round-up of pictures of celeb crushes that will make you disown your formerly favorite stars. These tragic celebrity pictures may remind you that even really, really ridiculously good looking people have awkward periods in their lives. 

What are the worst pictures of hot celebrities? What celebrity crushes are subjects of bad celebrity photos you've never seen before? These pictures aren't here to make you hate your celebrity crushes, but there are some pictures of celebrities you won't be able to unsee. Take the time, as you're traumatized by these unsexy celeb photos, to upvote the best of the worst celebrity pictures.
