Kids With Blunder Years Make More Attractive Adults. It's Pajiba Science!

Here at Pajiba Laboratories, we study celebrities day in and day out. In fact, we science all up in celebrity in this joint! I was sciencing with old VMA photos one day when I remembered the photos of Taylor Swift as a young child with corn row-adjacent hair. It was then that I began to formulate a theory concerning the goofiness of childhood looks as they pertain to adult good looks. In short, the goofier the phase a celebrity went through as a child, the more attractive they are as an adult.

Referred to as the Longbottom Effect, Pajiba Labs is not the first collection of celebriscience professionals to study this phenomena. We are, however, the most science-y of the bunch. We have test tubes filled with glitter, official lab coats emblazoned with Us Weekly covers, and a generous grant from a mysterious benefactor that signs the checks with only “S. Maximus”.

1. Demi Moore

2. Taylor Swift

3. Megan Fox

4. Tom Cruise

5. Channing Tatum

6. George Clooney

7. Tina Fey

8. If Matthew Lewis is the King of this theory, January Jones is his Queen.
