Hugh Jackman Wins 'Throwback Thursday'

We all know Hugh Jackman as the chiseled Wolverine, but he didn't always look like that. This past Thursday, the 46-year-old actor took to Instagram to post a 1985 throwback. He's the one on the far right. Apparently, his friends called him "Mr.Stick" -- because, well, you get it.

Jackman isn't the only celebrity that became a jacked-man ... get it? "True Blood" star Joe Manganiello didn't always look like his character Alcid. Believe it or not, Manganiello was once a scrawny kid barely big enough to hold a basketball.

Another celebrity who wasn't ever really scrawny, but was equally out of shape, is "Parks and Rec" co-star Chris Pratt. He got shredded for Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy," and is now one of Hollywood's leading men.

Lastly, we all know Disney stars Zac Efron and Nick Jonas. Well, they are child stars no more. The two teen heartthrobs ditched their squeaky-clean images ... and their shirts.
