Katherine Heigl posted a throwback photo of herself that took her way… back to her modeling days. The baby-faced beauty was just 16 when she posed for this nautical magazine spread, complete with “fake tattoos.”
Heigl started her career as a child model. When the actress was nine, an aunt visiting the family decided to take a number of photographs of her. After returning to her home in New York, her aunt sent the photos to various modeling agencies, with the permission of Heigl’s parents. Within a few weeks, she signed with Wilhelmina Models as a child model. She’s appeared on numerous publications including Maxim, Vanity Fair and Cosmopolitan.
