The fame and fortune get the best of these young actors and actresses. Even some of the darlings went to rehab while they were teenagers! Drew Barrymore was the one in mind. Macaulay Culkin hasn’t had such a great go at life either.
How is it that some of these Hollywood kiddos can ooze cuteness on screen at such a young age then go haywire in adulthood?
Steven Anthony Lawrence
Always a funny looking dude, in my opinion, this guy made his name big playing “Beans.” The sitcom was as Disney as Disney could get. It was called Even Stevens. Only airing for a few years, he didn’t have much time to make his mark, but he did it anyway.
Taran Noah Smith
As the youngest child of the Tim the Tool Man Taylor’s brood, he was the blunt of his TV brother’s jokes. Home Improvement brought a lot of people a lot of laughs, though, as it aired for eight seasons. No more acting for him, though.
No, no, no, it’s definitely not that Harry Potter isn’t utterly and completely awesome. And let’s be real, those Harry Potter movies made this kid. The ONLY reason he makes the list is that we’re sad he’s not a cute little wizard anymore.
I’m not sure about you, but I’ve seen enough of this one. Lindsay Lohan used to be that cute kid who played twins on the remake of The Parent Trap. You can’t forget Freaky Friday and then there was Mean Girls. She was bubbly and spunky and cute as a button.
That all changed, though.
One of the most well-known movie franchises is Harry Potter. This red-haired fellow played a huge role in those in his character Ron Weasley. His real name is Rupert Grint and he’s English-born.
You didn’t think we’d leave off this childhood star, did you? Home Alone is a great movie and the best part about that movie is undoubtedly Macaulay Culkin. Hands down, he’s the greatest in that film. He’s not exactly the same kid, though.
You probably don’t recognize her real name of Lark Voorhies, but all you Saved by the Bell fans should know her as Lisa Turtle. She was a 90s babe back then! Beside Tiffany Thiessen and Elizabeth Berkley, she fit right in with her looks and spunk!
Malcolm in the Middle star Frankie Muniz. The hilarious family show featuring a dorky but very cute kid named Malcolm. The show was centered around a family who has sent their oldest son to a military school. The three remaining brothers at home were Reese, Malcolm, and Dewey. It was focused on Malcolm and his struggle/adventures being the middle son still home.
Haley Joel Osmont
Haley Joel Osmont is the “I see dead people” kid from Sixth Sense if you remember. While the movie was creepy as all get out, it turned out to be a fantastic film. At least, everyone remembers it and quotes it. He was also in the movie Second Hand Lions. While he doesn’t see dead people any longer, he should probably see a trainer because we want this fellow to stick around in good health!
Ah, Screech. Everyone knows you and loved you at some point. You made us laugh and be thankful we weren’t you because of the goofy trouble you were always in. Dustin Diamond has opened up in an interview that hundreds of kids have approached him to thank him for getting them through high school.
