Photo Time-Lapse: See How Ethan Hawke Has Changed Over 25 Years

First came Dead Poets Society. Then Reality Bites. Then Before Sunrise came out in 1995. Ethan Hawke helped define the guy persona of the mid-nineties: artsy, casual, with dirty hair and a reluctant grin. (Bonus points for a guitar.) He even wrote poetry and made Hamlet. With the return of Jesse and Celine in Before Midnight, it seemed the perfect time to revisit the many looks of Ethan Hawke. Warning: Contains a lot of "funky" shirts.
