Celebrities as child stars


how the famous faces transformed in the limelight

Holly Willougby has made a name for herself in the limelight thanks to her regular TV spots, on everything from This Morning to Surprise Surprise and Celebrity Juice.
But she looked totally different when she first started out, and we've caught a glimpse of her all those years ago in the video for S Club 7: Artistic Differences.
And she's not alone - there's a whole stream of Child Stars who look very different now.
Some have barely changed in the last few decades and seem to have found the key to eternal youth. Others are proof that it's possible to grow out of those awkward teenage years.
Here are more former child stars who look really different now...

Lindsay Lohan


Lindsay from Parent Trap to now

She shot to fame playing the twins in Parent Trap - but seeing Lindsay now, she couldn't have changed more through the years.
Gone is that cute freckly face and short ginger hair, and she's grown out her locks and opted for heavy make-up, as she altered her appearance in the limelight.

Justin Timberlake


Justin Timberlake

He might be one of the most well known pop stars across the globe now, but do you remember Justin way back when?
The star appeared on the TV shows Star Search and The All-New Mickey Mouse Club as a child, before rising to prominence as one of the two lead vocalists of NSYNC in the 1990s.


Megan McKenna


Oh Megan

Megan McKenna has become somewhat of a reality queen in a matter of months - but she wasn't always so cool and collected.
The TOWIE star previously auditioned for Britain's Got Talent, and looked VERY different in her earlier singing career as part of band double act Harmony.

Frankie Bridge


Frankie is that you?

She's gone on to find fame in girl group The Saturdays, but Frankie (known at the time as Sandford) first shot to fame as part of S Club Juniors in 2001.
How could we forget?

Rochelle Humes


Rochelle looks different

Frankie was joined in S Club Juniors by a younger and very sweet Rochelle.

Emma Watson


We remember Emma way back when

She took on the role of bushy-haired Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films - and look at Emma now.
She's gone on to build a huge brand for herself, and now regularly takes part in and leads global gender equality campaigns.

Haley Joel Osment


Haley is that you?

Haley Joel Osment has shown a dramatic transformation over the years, going from a sweet little boy in the Sixth Sense to a terrifying Nazi in his latest film.

Abigail Breslin

American actress and singer Abigail looks completely unrecognisable to her former Little Miss Sunshine character now - as she's gone on to star in Scream Queens and countless more.

Devin Ratray

Home Alone to now

Remember Buzz McCallister in Home Alone?
Well he now looks like this - and has gone on to star in films including Nebraska and Blue Ruin.

Dustin Diamond and Mark Paul Gosselaar

Saved By The Bell hunks all grown up

They shot to fame on Saved By The Bell - but you wouldn't recognise these two now.
Dustin has gone on to star in TV shows, as well as causing controversy with an alleged sex tape, while Mark-Paul went on to star in Franklin & Bash, NYPD Blue and more.

Jonathan Lipnicki

Remember Jerry Maguire?

He is best known as a child star in films such as Jerry Maguire, Stuart Little, The Little Vampire, and more.
And just look at him now.

Dakota Fanning

Dakota is still hugely famous

She was perhaps one of the most famous child stars of her time, but Dakota has transformed - keeping her feet firmly planted in the limelight throughout.
She's gone on to show off her grown up features in Twilight and more.

Macaulay Culkin

Macauley back in Home Alone

The Home Alone kid possibly steals the crown for biggest change over the years.
We can't lie, we miss that shocked face.

Christian Bale


Barcroft
Bale shot to fame early on

Bale first caught the public eye at the age of 13, when he was cast in the starring role of Steven Spielberg's Empire of the Sun (1987).
It was a huge start to a huge career that has spanned decades since.

Matthew Lewis

From Harry Potter to now

Perhaps our favourite Harry Potter transformation was Matthew's as he dropped his scared, dopey character behind for good.

Georgie Henley

Georgie has changed

She played Lucy Pevensie in The Chronicles of Narnia films, but Georgie has changed a fair bit since.
Proving she couldn't be more set for a huge career - she's even gone on to star in horrors.
