    I know the names of some celebrities these days. But there are a number of young ones that I had never heard of until I looked at some lists carrying their names.

    I will list some contemporary celebrities and pair them with those of yesteryear. Sometimes I won't mention a person per se. There is no particular order here. I'll put the modern name on top and the older one below. Some younger BB'ers may not recognize the older names.

    Jennifer Lawrence
    Carol Lawrence

    Robert Downey Jr.
    Morton Downey Jr.
