Did you know the Academy Award-winning actress actually started her career as a pop star?

Before They Were Famous 2

Brie Larson may be an Oscar-winning actress after picking up an Academy Award for Best Actress on Sunday night, but did you know she actually started her career as a pop star.

Rare footage of the actress in a cringe-worthy music video for 'She Said' has been unearthed, and we admit, we  had to watch it from behind our fingers. 

The 'Room' actress was just a teenager at the time, and bears a striking resemblance to the likes of Avril Lavigne as she strums a guitar in this pop punk music video. 

It's thought the music video was made around ten years ago, when she got her first break as a recording artist.

We don't know how she managed to keep this a secret! 

Nowadays, Youtube star Tom Fletcher may be best known for his amazing home videos… but it wasn't always like that!

Ryan Gosling - Pre 'The Notebook' 

Ryan is the latest star to look back and cringe at old an old home-video from before he was famous! Check out his slick moves at 12 years old!

We almost had to look twice when we laid our eyes on this hilarious video of Ryan Gosling, long before he became the hunk that we all know and love today. 

The blonde cutie is just 12-years-old in this vintage vid, which sees 'The Notebook' star dancing to 'Hound Dog' in what we can only describe as MC Hammer style spangly trousers. 

Commenting on his cringe-worthy video tape, Ryan wrote on Twitter: "Obviously I peaked early. Thank you @JaneChupick and twitter for the check up from the neck up."

Wait a minute…did Ryan just break out the old school running man move? Hilarious!
