Is there anything greater in life than a good #throwbackthursday snapshot? Well, obviously there is — the world is full of treasure, from hearty fall soup and herb cocktails to awesome DIY getaways with your besties. BUT there’s no denying that a trip down memory lane via photography is pretty sweet also.

And as fun as it is to look at your own past, sometimes it’s neat to see what other people have been up to. Checking out a chubby-cheeked kid smiling at the camera and not knowing what their childhood was like can be as interesting as looking at yourself and remembering what it was like to be that kid. It’s a healthy form of voyeurism, if you will.

Celebrity throwback photos offer a sort of hybrid of the two reactions: Obviously none of us were young Susan Sarandon (unless Susan is reading this!), but many of us grew up watching her in movies, so memories of our earlier lives can be tied up in past images of her, or any other star.

Old-school pics of celebs allow us to remember both ourselves and them, which is pretty cool. So without further ado, here are some #TBTs from our faves.

1. Kourtney Kardashian
