Child Stars That Turned out Just Fine

Page 1 of 6

Hollywood has a bad reputation for leading young actors and actresses down the wrong path, but there are several child stars that turned out just fine, in spite the pressures of an industry governed by short-lived success. While some may have had a few brief encounters with drugs and alcohol, they’ve managed to stay on track of their career goals in the long term, earning their spot as A-list celebrities in the music and film arena.

As a child star, it can be difficult to keep your eyes on the prize, especially when manipulative, fake friends and industry pressures are in the picture. Unfortunately, some young talents fall prey to Hollywood’s temptations and you can read up on that in our previous article about 10 famous celebrities who needed rehab. But this list is all about the strong-minded and ambitious personalities that made it to the top and managed to stay there. Take a look at the child stars that turned out just fine.

Lincoln, The Dark Knight Rises, Looper, Inception, 500 Days of Summer…need I continue the list?

And with Don Jon, the actor can now add slash director to his profession.
