10 Hottest Former Child Stars
Cute little girls in pigtails have a tendency to grow into beautiful women. These are 10 of the hottest female former child stars of the 80’s and 90’s all grown up and stealing our hearts.
Evan Rachel Wood’s first starring role in a movie was in Digging to China in 1998 when she was 11 years old. She has since morphed into a real knockout beauty starring in Running with Scissors and Across the Universe. She also has been seen on the popular vampire TV show “True Blood”.
Lacey Chabert played Claudia Salinger on “Party of Five” which ran from 1994-2000. She has since played the voice in many animated TV shows such as “Family Guy” and played Gretchen Wieners in the movie Mean Girls along side Lindsay Lohan and Rachel McAdams.
I’m counting the Olsen twins as one person because everyone has their personal favorite of the two, even though they are both fabulous. They first became famous sharing the role of Michelle Tanner on “Full House” when they were very young. The Olsens have now moved on from acting and work in the fashion industry designing their own clothing line.
One of Drew Barrymore’s most memorable childhood roles was in E.T. Barrymore has since done many movies such as Charlie’s Angels and cult favorite Donnie Darko.
Kirsten Dunst played the adorable pint-sized vampire named Claudia along side Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, and Christian Slater in Interview with the Vampire in 1994. She has since been seen in multiple TV shows and movies such as Crazy/Beautiful, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Virgin Suicides, Marie Antoinette and the Spiderman series.
Thought it was not her first part in a movie, Jennifer Connelly is well known for her part in Labyrinth alongside David Bowie. She is still in the acting business today. One of my favorite movies that she starred in is Requiem for a Dream, and more recently she played Janine in He’s Just Not That Into You with the next lovely lady on the list, Scarlett Johansson.
The first movie Scarlett Johansson was in was North in 1994. She has been named one of the sexiest women alive by Playboy Magazine, Esquire Magazine, FHM, and Maxim. Johansson continues to act in movies, most recently with Iron Man 2.
Mila Kunis began her acting career in 1995 at the age of 12. She performed in a variety of TV shows including “Baywatch”, “Walker, Texas Ranger”, and “Unhappily Ever After” followed by her role in “That 70’s Show” beginning when she was 15. Kunis continues to act; she’s starring in the upcoming Black Swan and has been playing the voice of Meg Griffin on TV show, “Family Guy”.
Lindsay Lohan used to appear in Jello commercials with Bill Cosby by her side. She also performed as a pair of twins in the remake of Disney’s The Parent Trap in 1998. Lindsay Lohan is always all over the news with her bad girl ways, from DUIs to serving time in jail. She does continue to act from time to time. Some may argue that she has become unattractive due to her lifestyle, but I still find her to be a complete knockout.
Hayden Panettiere used to be on soap opera “One Life to Live”. She is now better known as Claire Bennet in TV show “Heroes” and does a bit of work in movies.
Let’s face it; there are a lot of child stars that grew up to be gorgeous.
