It's time to watch a young Leonardo DiCaprio in this Kraft cheese commercial

We’re all familiar with Leonardo DiCaprio — as in, he’s one of the biggest movie stars to ever grace the earth. But acting is a tough game and even he had to start somewhere. Yup, it might come as a surprise, but young Leo starred in classic food commercials for Kraft singles cheese (shout out to People.com for finding this gift)! He’s so adorably fresh-faced that it takes us right back to yesteryear.

It might only be a cheese commercial, but if you ask us, he was already a total charmer. Don’t believe it? Take a look for yourselves!

Sweet, sweet Leo!

Okay, we’re officially in a Leo-centric internet deep dive, and our craving must be sated! Here he is in The New Lassie at just 14 years old:

 And then came the days of Growing Pains, when Leo was just figuring out how to do interviews.

From Romeo and Juliet and beyond, SWOON!

Leo has been acting for over thirty years now, and has been nominated for five Academy Awards, winning his first for 2015’s The Revenant. Not only has he become one of the most sought-after actors, but he continues to be active in his support for pressing world issues like climate change.

Oh, that same People.com piece also reminded us about some other actors who took commercial jobs as youngsters! Did you know that Sarah Michelle Gellar was once an impossibly cute and tiny actress? Here’s a commercial she did for Burger King in 1981, when she was only four! Bless.
