It is true that most children are cute and good-looking. And it is also true that only some of them end up looking cute and good-looking when they grow up.
Somehow, growing up can really change a person’s appearance, and not necessarily for the better.
Take child actors as an example. Most of them are really cute and attractive and so we naturally believe that they will grow up to become handsome young men and stunning young women. However, that is not always the case. Which you will soon after reading this list.
Sometimes cute child actors grow up and lose their good looks somewhere in the process of growing up. Which is sad, but even in the celebrity world, this is something people face.
Of course, sometimes it is not only the process of growing up that changes a celeb’s appearance. Fame and lots of money mean that a lot of child actors start drinking and consuming drugs from an early age.
And we all know that there is no better and quicker way of losing your good looks than by excessive alcohol consumption and drug abuse.
In addition, some child actors put on a lot of weight and stop caring about their looks. They end up looking sleazy and greasy and it takes them a lot of effort later on in life to clean up their looks.
Here are 15 child stars we all thought would grow up hot but didn’t. Let us know your opinion on these celebrities and how they grew up!
