10 Celebrities You Never Knew Were Cheerleaders
Before they were bringing it on the red carpet, they were simply bringing it on. Despite popular belief that A-listers pop onto movie screens out of the womb, celebrities were regular folks once upon a time too, ya kno. And in that time span out of the spotlight, they, like us, likely spent four grueling years in high school doing all the typical teenage milestones: prom, homecoming, college applications—even cheerleading.
That’s right. Despite not snagging gigs to do high kicks and shimmy pom-poms at NFL and NBA games, some of these celebs were pretty darn peppy in their high school years. (We’re looking at you, Reese Witherspoon.) Relive your high school days and learn a little more about your favorite stars in their pre-celebrity era with this gallery. Here are 10 celebrities you never knew were cheerleaders.
T might’ve been Tuesday, but that didn’t stop Chrissy Teigen from throwing back to the most perfect #TBT. The 31-year-old and—as some might say (ahem, us)—the queen of the Internet broke the web yet again when she shared the cutest photo of her as a high school cheerleader to Instagram. Yup, before the model was killing it on Twitter, she was killing it on the football field—with what we’re sure were the most clever less-than-140-characters cheers ever.
Flanked by six of her teammates, Teigen sported a wide dimply smile and sleek dark hair as she posed in her alma mater Snohomish High’s adorable cheerleading uniform. And if it wasn’t for #TBT’s grainy quality—which wouldn’t cut it on Insta these days—it wouldn’t be hard to convince us that the pic was taken not too long ago. (Tell us your aging secrets, Chrissy.)
“Yes ladies!!” Teigen captioned the post.
