PSA: Paolo From 'The Lizzie McGuire Movie' Was On A Popular TV Show & No One Noticed! Disney

If you were a pre-teen or tween in the early 2000's, I don't need to tell you how amazingly relatable Lizzie McGuire was!

This girl was one of the only relatable women on the Disney Channel at the time because unlike Raven Baxter and Miley Stewart, she didn't have supernatural powers or a secret life as a pop star, she simply went to school and awkwardly grew up the same way we all did.

That is, until The Lizzie McGuire Movie came out and she pulled the ORIGINAL Hannah Montana move and started a second life as an Italian pop star (that's right Miley, Lizzie did it first!).

This movie gave every awkward teenager hope that one day, they'd grow up to be someone spectacular and also, take revenge on anyone who tried to harm them.

Lizzie and Isabella nailed Paolo once they realised that he was planning on publicly humiliating them and then what happened? Lizzie sang the most iconic song of the '00s and became a massive star (in the movie and real life, by the way!).

Paolo really got what he deserved, but what ever happened to the actor who played the evil singer?

Turns out, he actually landing a role on Pretty Little Liars and no one noticed because he looked so damn different!

Yani Gellmen played Garrett Reynolds on the show and just look at how much he's changed!

Even Miley appreciated his excellence when she bumped into him when she was hanging out with her little sister Noah a few days ago!

I can't believe we didn't know this and it's amazing to know that Yani's career is still going strong...

We wonder what Paolo would be up to these days, though...
