movie marathon: before they were famous

grab the remote and have the ultimate throwback thursday.

by liza darwin

The whole Throwback Thursday thing is fun enough on its own, but when it's winter and it's dark and all you want to do is cuddle up under the covers, we've found the perfect solution.

Rather than scrolling through your Instagram feed of baby pictures, instead get some popcorn and watch some of our favorite stars from back in the day. Yeah, we're talking about a pre-teen Mischa Barton in The Sixth Sense, a goofy (but definitely good looking) Alexander Skarsgard in Zoolander, and Jennifer Lawrence when she was just a babyfaced newcomer in The Burning Plain. 

These roles may not have been the actors' first gigs, but they were definitely their breakout parts--so plan your own movie night around these awesome classics, because there's really no better reason to stay in tonight.
