Emily Deschanel Before She Was Famous

emily deschanel bonesBefore she was forensic anthropologist 'Bones,' Emily Deschanel, 'New Girl' Zooey Deschanel's older, less hipster sister, was a high school senior at Crossroads School in Los Angeles.

After her feature-film debut in 1994's rom-com 'It Could Happen To You,' Deschanel had a few more notable roles, like Stephen Kin's 'Rose Red' in 2002 and 'Boogeyman' in 2005, before landing the role of Temperance Brennan on Fox's 'Bones.'

The hit show returns for Season 7 on Thurs., Nov. 3 at 9PM ET on Fox, and expect a few big changes for our favorite duo. Bones is pregnant (Deschanel was at the time too!) and feeling the early kicks of her baby, and Booth is having a hard time adjusting to the life of an expectant dad.

Check out Deschanel's high school picture after the jump. Is it just us or did she look more like her little sister when she was younger?

She's pretty adorkable too, right?

that high school photo looked like a completely different person. She had a slim, heart-shaped jawline and now she has a very square, masculine jawline. That doesn't just develop over time. Did she have facial surgery? If so, her slim, pointed jawline looked MUCH better than this very square one.

Funny you mention that... The reason I am at this forum was a search fro a high school photo of emily, on close up shot TGF HD TV's you can see some form of scarring from major reconstruction-or so it seems? Maybe a problem with TMJ? Regardless of before or after Emily, and Zooey are lovely women, and great talents.

I don't want this to go to her head, but if she plays her cards right, she could have her way with me.

I wouldn't kick her out of bed but i definitely wouldnt call her gorgeous. Nose is a little Michael Jacksonish.

Even before I saw the question, I was thinking she looked more like her sister back then.

Didn't "Booth" get caught cheating on his wife a few years ago? Never heard anything more about it.
