Ever wondered how actors became the stars that they are today? Well thanks to this new audition reel collection, we can now see their humble roots and the raw talent hiding behind their first big productions.

Just this summer we have watched Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams audition for their important roles as Sansa and Arya on "Game of Thrones," and the cast of "Forrest Gump" rocking their test tapes. And now we have a chance to binge on other reels from some of the best actors around town.

The video features a myriad of different actors showing off their skills: from Aaron Paul trying out for his breakout role Jesse Pinkman in "Breaking Bad," to Miley Cyrus figuring out Hannah Montana, to Gabourey Sidibe doing an emotional rendition of Precious. This gem of a collection even includes Jim Carrey as the Grinch (which may not be his first big role, but it's hilarious nonetheless).
