Courtney Love, 1980
Pictured here at age 16 -- the same year she was legally emancipated from her parents -- Courtney Love began a life odyssey that saw the former reform school girl become a stripper in Alaska, a student in Dublin, and in her adult life a famous widow, actress and controversial rock star as frontwoman of Hole.
