We have seen them grow up and suddenly they disappeared from the screens of our TVs or simply their life took another turn. In this article we want to remember who they were. What have these child actors been up to, how they look after so many years. Read on to find out!
The first that comes to mind is child actor Macauley Culkin. He used to be a very sweet boy in “Home Alone” but he grew up to look much different, which is a sign that all those excesses he did in the past have taken their toll.
Some of his achievements after “Home Alone” is being arrested for possessions of drugs in Oklahoma. Eventually, he decided to step out of the spotlight. That’s too bad, we say.
Drew Barrymore made her debut as a child actor at the age of 7 by playing Gertie in E.T. The transformed into a problematic child as soon as she became famous as she started to take drugs at the age of 10. She was admitted to rehab at the age of 13 and she appeared naked on the cover of a magazine when she was 17.
Now, Drew Barrymore seems to have gotten over it. She got engaged to Will Kopelman at the beginning of 2011. We are glad to see such a happy ending!
David Anthony Faustino
David Anthony Fausino, also known as Bud Bundy from Married With Children had a hard time getting over the domination of the role that made his name. Faustino is another former child actor to have problems with the law as he was arrested for possession of marijuana in May 2007 and, after an overdose, he checked in to rehab. He quit acting and he now owns a nightclub in Los Angeles and he dedicated himself to rap music.
Lindsay Lohan became popular because of her magazine appearances at very young ages and she started her career as an actor in 1998 by starring in The Parent Trap remake.
Today, Lindsay Lohan is no longer the innocent girl we used to know and love. She is 26 years old now and she was arrested and admitted to rehab countless times because of her addiction to alcohol and drugs.
Nobody can forget Jonathan Lipnicki from Jerry Maguire! Although he stepped out of the spotlight for some time to live his teenage years, he came back, and he did it with a bang!
Jonathan became a very good looking young man as evidenced by the photo below. So he is one child actor that managed to become better.
We first saw Jodie Foster playing a teenage prostitute in Taxi Driver, a role that brought her an Oscar for best supporting actress.
Jodie is a clear example of an actress that aged on the big screen. She is no longer that rebel kid. Jodie Foster kept her private life a secret for a long time but she finally admitted she is gay.
