Hard to believe it, but soccer stud Cristiano Ronaldo was once a boy, not a man. Behold evidence above of regular kid Ronaldo, who has yet to grow into his teeth or discover the various ways one can dye and oil skin and hair. It's a far cry from the ripped Vogue cover star we've come to know (or an aging drag queen, depending on who you ask and where their loyalties lie). This just goes to show you that a pair of veneers, some impressively groomed eyebrows and international fame can really change your whole look.
