Having become stars before having lost all their baby teeth, these child stars have for some managed a more or less decent career and for others have sunk into a huge bag of coke (which is not very recommended at eight years). What is certain is that they have all taken a lot of old and that it does not rejuvenate us.
1. Danny Lloyd (Shining)
The bowl cut suited him perfectly, on the other hand the goatee is not exactly that. When I think that this guy is now a biology teacher at school, his students are so lucky.
2. Haley Joel Osment (Sixth Sense, AI Artificial Intelligence)
Well, since he’s no longer a very cute little boy, we don’t see him too much in the movies anymore. But he will forever be in our hearts.
3. Macaulay Culkin (Mom, I missed the plane)
Macaulay, or the living proof of the harmful effects of crack on health. Fortunately, he managed to get out of his drug problems a few years ago and is now much better!
4. Lindsay Lohan (Freaky Friday, Despite Me Lolita)
Drugs + Alcohol + Lots and lots of surgery. After all, we don’t judge, me personally, I love to botox my face every morning before drinking child’s blood.
5. Jonathan Lipnicki (Jerry Maguire, Stuart Little)
Having become full BG, Jonathan Lipnicki is clearly someone you want to go on vacation with.
6. Drew Barrymore (ET)
Alcoholic at 9, cocaine addict at 12, Drew Barrymore had what is called a big slump before making his comeback in the early 2000s and never disappearing from the media landscape again.
7. Jonathan Ke Quan (The Goonies, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom)
His role as Half-Moon with Indiana Jones ended his career. And it was already really good: the Goonies, a few TV series episodes including one for Tales from the Crypt, the American actor of Vietnamese origin got into martial arts and found himself choreographer in charge stunts on X-Men and The One. Good game.
8. Jake Lloyd (Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace)
Traumatized by the mockery of his classmates when the film was released and by the over-mediatization of which he was the victim, Jake Lloyd never followed up on his brief acting career. It’s sad.
9. Ludwig Briand (An Indian in the City)
Like Danny Lloyd, Ludwig Briand succumbed to the call of the goat for a while. It cost him his career. Since then, he has become a poker champion, the ideal conversion when you are struggling to recover.
10. Linda Blair (The Exorcist)
Threatened when the film was released by people who thought she was really possessed, then caught buying drugs in the middle of the street, Linda Blair did not ultimately have a great film career. However, she can boast of having won three Razzie Awards for the worst actress in her short career.
11. Antoine du Merle (The Three Brothers)
Who, despite his presence in the casting of Three Brothers: the return, will forever remain in our hearts.
12. Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine)
The little dancing queen has grown into a wonderful adult.
13. Jamie Bell (Billy Elliott)
Already brilliant in this film about dance, Jamie Bell also had the good taste to become a very cool actor. I don’t know about you but I would like it to be my brother-in-law.
14. Benoît Magimel (Life is a long calm river)
But what happened?
15. Freddie Highmore (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory)
Now a star in The Good Doctor, little Freddie has come a long way. Besides, he’s clearly not the kind of person who gives a shit at a Christmas dinner.
