Gwyneth Paltrow Turns 40: Check Out The Actress Pre-Fame (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

Gwyneth Paltrow may be hitting the big 4-0 on Thursday, but she doesn't look a day over "Shakespeare in Love" to us.

The timeless beauty celebrates a milestone birthday today and we're celebrating with an adorable flashback photo of the blonde beauty, thanks to Snakkle.

The photo below pictures Paltrow during her 1990 senior year of high school at New York City's Spence School. And it's no wonder that her studies would lead her to Hollywood -- after all, she calls actress Blythe Danner mom and director Bruce Paltrow dad. Just one year after this bubble gum-blowing snapshot was taken, Paltrow would earn a role in the beloved, "Hook."

Click through to Snakkle to see other flashback photos of celebrities turning the big 4-0 this year.
