Beyonce, Zac Efron & More Looked Totally Hot, Even In High School: See The Pics

Not a neckbrace in sight!

Ah, Winter Break: A time when we all return home to contemplate our lost youth while poring over yearbooks and crying bitter tears of regret.

Well, some folks, they just had more luminous upbringings that others -- at least according to a thread launched by Gawker this week asking people to post yearbook snaps from any and all famous classmates. One person, in particular, was lucky enough to have Beyoncé in his/her class -- and we imagine that that person has walked within a bubble of light ever since.

Let's take a look at the best snaps that Gawker uncovered -- taking them with a grain of salt, of course, since this is the internet and whatnot and it was high school and there is PTSD in play here.
