Today, it's clear Zac Efron is all grown up. The erstwhile Disney star has taken on grittier roles, demonstrated his bra-unhooking prowess and proved his sexual preparedness (hey, you never know when the premiere of a Dr. Seuss movie will call for a prophylactic.)
But before the "High School Musical" star rose to fame as a teenage basketball player with a penchant for choreographed dance routines (and before he appeared on MTV's ultra-icky dating show "Room Raiders"), he was a sweet-looking 7th grader with an adorable gap-toothed smile.
In honor of Efron's 25th birthday Thursday, we present this middle school yearbook photo, courtesy of Snakkle.com.
