Wow...I can't believe this!

Child stars hold a certain fascination for everyone who's ever seen a movie. The kids who become the biggest child stars seem like they're adults in tiny bodies, which makes them unusual. And some kids just light up the screen with their precocious performances - can anyone forget how much you really believed little Haley Joel Osment when he said he saw dead people? Some child stars fade away and are never heard from again - but a chosen few manage to keep acting until they're grown up. These are the child stars we're most fascinated with, because can you imagine growing up famous?

The idea of being an awkward teenager in the spotlight is terrifying, but these child stars lived through it! And while not all of them are working steadily in Hollywood, some of them have found success and even a new lease on stardom as adults. One great example is Drew Barrymore, who starred in E.T. when she was just six years old. She had a rough time for a while in her teens, but she's now not only an actor, but a producer as well. Child stars all take a different path - where did your favorites end up? Get Started
