Celebrity yearbook: See what your favorite stars looked like in high school

As the school year wraps up for kids across the country, we got to thinking about our own awkward teen years. And then we began wondering what high school was like for our favorite celebrities.

So, we went ahead and dug up the actual yearbook photos of our favorite stars — including Kelly Clarkson, Melissa McCarthy, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and more — and came up with our own senior superlatives for each.
