From Awkward to Awesomely Hot
DWAYNE 'THE ROCK' JOHNSON: THEN
On the red carpet for Furious 7, Johnson covered up those massive muscles in a gray tux. Back in the '90s, however, he sported a different look. "Fanny pack and lean take it to a whole other level... #90sRock #WTF #BuffLesbian," he captioned this hilarious shot.

Johnson's black turtleneck kept things under wraps, but we know that his body has always been good, thanks to his insanely early, hardcore daily workouts and strict diet rules (warning: following him on Instagram will make you feel so bad about your own diet and exercise plans).
It's hard to imagine the @champagnepapi was ever awkward (c'mon, those smooth rhymes!), but singer Insta'd what looks to be a middle school era throwback pic with the caption "Been Urkle," referring to his (adorably) nerdy looks and slim frame.
Skinny and awkward no more, he's always lifting weights at the gym (and also documenting every sweat sesh on Insta).
JOE MANGANIELLO: THEN
Manganiello told the Huffington Post that he was bullied as a child, but that "failure became a huge part of my success story. I'm glad that I lost, I'm glad that I failed, I'm glad that I felt that way and decided to do something about it. I never wanted to feel that way again and it drove me."

No Magic here: the True Blood actor's transformation was the result of hard work and dedication – he works out twice a day, six days a week.
JERRY O'CONNELL: THEN
"I was a typical American kid," O'Connell told Men's Fitness of his appearance in Stand by Me. "I ate a bag of chips on the way home from school and a box of Entenmann's when I got there."

Joining the men's fencing team at New York University turned his fitness routine around – and in 2009, the funny man proudly donned a bright red Speedo for his Sexiest Man Alive photo shoot.
HENRY CAVILL: THEN
"I was fat," the Man of Steel actor says of his childhood years. "I was Fat Cavill." At boarding school, he "became an easy target … I bawled on the phone to my mom four times a day," he told Details.
HENRY CAVILL: NOW
When he decided to become an actor at 17, Cavill changed up his health habits, lost 21 lbs. while training for a role, and suddenly, "I wasn't Fat Cavill anymore," he shares proudly.
ADAM LEVINE: THEN
Even the Sexiest Man Alive wasn't always, well, the Sexiest Man Alive.

MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY: THEN
Hard to say if this was an awkward phase or an awkward photo, but a teenage McConaughey seemed to know that everything would be "all right, all right, all right" someday.

Though not as known for hitting the gym like some of Hollywood's other hot guys, we've spotted him working out in the past. And we imagine that lately, he's burning calories through Prancercise.

These days, the American Idol host eats everything in moderation, and makes it a goal to spend five hours a week in the gym. "I remember not having the confidence and then gaining it and going through [my physical] transformation. I haven't forgotten about that," he shared.
