17 unknown photographs of popular individuals messing about simply such as children

Many of us are unaccustomed to behaving frivolously and spontaneously. This is a pity, since a carefree attitude and childish merrymaking are known to improve brain activity and even prolong life. So don’t be afraid to ape around. Cultivating a composed and respectable image can of course be useful, but maintaining it 24/7 won’t do you any good either.
Getzkick presents you with this fascinating collection of photos that prove that even the most seriously-minded historical figures weren’t averse to occasionally forgetting about their important tasks in favour of acting a bit silly. After all, everyone needs to be themselves once in a while!
