You’ve surely noticed that Celebrities are filling up your feed with amazing throwback photos.
The hashtag #PuberMe is trending, and the reason for all these wonderfully awkward puberty pics? Hurricane Relief! Each #PuberMe pic posted equals $1000 donation to hurricane relief in Puerto Rico.
Nick Kroll started the hashtag with Stephen Colbert, then they challenged their celebrity friends to post their best awkward puberty photos!
We combed through them and found the 10 most awkward.
#10 – Aisha Tyler
It looks like Aisha’s in the foreground, and the other kids are in the background… but no, she’s just huge. At least she had sweet dance moves.
Dear @nickkroll and @stephenathome, Here I am in the sixth grade. Feast your eyes: there is so VERY much to take in. As you can see, I am at least 300% larger than all other sixth graders on the planet ever (the humans near me are to scale). After this impromptu juice box-fueled lunchtime dance I went out into the city and crushed puny humans with my thundering hooves of doom. Look upon me and despair. #puberme #puertoricorelief
#9 – The Backstreet Boys
Dad jeans errrywhere! The oversized shirts, the horrible patterns… each one of them a shining example of awful hair. Why is Nick in a stroller? Why are AJ and Howie framing him like he’s their child? Why does Kevin look older in this picture than he is today?
#8 – Bridget Everett
Ahh, the missing front tooth… The majority of us went with a close-lipped smile during that trying time of accidental spitting and whistling; But not Bridget; Bridget rocked it.
#7 – Kumail Nanjiani
The poofy hair parted in the middle, and that so, so sad attempt at a mustache…

#6 – Stephen Colbert
Don’t stress mini Stephen, those braces will do their job, and one day you’ll grow into your suit… and your ears… and smile…
#5 – Ryan Seacrest
Giant grandma glasses, braces, big wavy hair – the 80’s trifecta.

#4 – Melissa Rauch
Believe it or not kids, this was the height of fashion. Puff those bangs up, the bigger the better, same goes for the shoulders and the skirt. While you’re at it, put a massive bow in your hair. Let’s top that off with tights that make it look like your legs have never seen the sun. Magnificent.
#3 – Alison Brie
Dancing in your oversized jammies, rocking your headgear and some demon level redeye… it’s too much.
#2 – Amy Schumer
What is happening here? Amy and her shirtless brother posing eyes closed and smile-free in front of several 90210 magazine cut outs. We’re confused about a lot here, except the awkwardness, that is very apparent.
#1 – Clark Gregg
Agent Coulson? Is that you? Why are you leaning on the curtains? Why is that bowtie so big? Who chose this outfit!? Why is your hair plastered to your forehead!? So many questions!
He may have started the hashtag, but we say he’s more cute than awkward here:
#tbt Last Night on @colbertlateshow Stephen Colbert and I agreed to pledge money to #puertoricorelief for every celeb who posts a pic from their most awkward years w/ hashtag #puberme. Here is one of mine. I hadn't hit puberty yet which is why I guess I was dressed as a tiny mobster in a failed attempt to look tough?
Sure this is awkward, but nothing’s changed. He’s still this awkward.

Teased bangs… a 90’s classic. We’re also digging the puffy pink coat, and the giant glasses! But Jessica, you’re still cute as a button.
