The world has never had as many billionaires as it does today. Developers, directors, writers, artists — there are over 2,000 people on the Forbes billionaire list, that is constantly growing. Moreover, some entrepreneurs, like Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, have hit it through the roof with $100 billion.

ViralSection knows that many of the world`s richest people came from humble beginnings and tried to remain modest, though it’s impossible to avoid the changes that come with big money. So here are 18 billionaires’ “before and after” pics, so we can all see how much different they looked before they became extremely wealthy.
