Ryan Seacrest's Vintage Hollywood Headshot (PHOTO)

Before Ryan Seacrest was one of the most successful men in media, he was a struggling television host, actor and disc jockey.

The 37-year-old producer, who is responsible for introducing the Kardashians to the world, takes home millions and millions of dollars every year from his production company, radio show and of course his $15 million annual contract as host of Fox's hit show "American Idol," which is now in its 11th season.

Before he dominated the media industry, life was simpler for Seacrest, and today he shared a rare reminder of those long lost times with his 5.8 Twitter followers:

"My headshot from when i first moved to hollywood...shirt i got free from B.U.M. Equipment...and look at the resume!"


Correction:This is the 11th season of "American Idol." A previous version of this story incorrectly stated it was the 10th season. The story has been updated to reflect the correction.
