12 Celebrity Kids Who Grew Up Too Fast
Being a young TV star is never easy, and that’s why many child actors mature a lot quicker than their peers. Bright Side made a selection of star kids who grew up way too fast for us to notice.
Bella’s first appearance on the big screen was at the age of 6 in the 2003 film Stuck on You. But her first major role was in the second season of Dirty Sexy Money, a big start for a little star. 10 years have passed, and she looks stunning.
This 7-year-old girl stole our hearts when she played the role of Lucy Dowson in the drama I Am Sam. After winning several serious awards, she is now seen not only on the big screen but also on the covers of fashion magazines and Fashion Week opening ceremonies.
As a kid, this cheeky boy worked with such huge stars as Johny Depp and Robin Williams. After he got the lead role in the latest ABC prime time drama, we can definitely say that this young fellow finally got rid of that "cute August Rush" label.
You probably remember this guy for his performance in the really romantic Christmas film Love Actually. If not, then his role as Jojen Reed in Game of Thrones will definitely ring a bell. But he grew up so quickly, becoming a star in such cult films as Death of a Superhero and Nowhere Boy, in which he played Paul McCartney.
This beautiful girl was born on Christmas Day into the family of the world-famous rapper Eminem. He mentions his daughter in his songs dozens of times, and we always thought of Hailie as Eminem’s little daughter...until the day she made her first post on Instagram and we realized that she’s not a baby anymore.
This girl woke up famous after the music video for the song Chandelier, featuring 11-year-old Maddie, hit more than 1.6 billion views on YouTube. She is only 15 now, but no one will dare to call her a "little star," and perhaps she really grew up fast. Too fast.
Alexa Vega became very popular after starring in the 2001 film Spy Kids. 2 years later, at the age of 15, she was named one of the year’s hottest teen celebrities. She recorded several soundtracks for the films she starred in, participated in Dancing With the Stars, and, let’s just admit it, matured too early.
Since her early years, Bindi appeared in TV shows with her dad, Steve Irwin the Crocodile Hunter. After his death, Bindi, aged 8, delivered a eulogy for her father, in which she promised that she would continue her late father’s conservation and television work. And so she does. Bindi is now a beautiful conservationist, actress, singer, and dancer.
Jaden’s first movie role was with his world-famous father, Will Smith, in the 2006 film The Pursuit of Happyness. He also started a rapping career as well as his own clothing/lifestyle brand. As a 15th birthday present, Jaden sought an emancipation ruling, with the consent of his parents. Young Smith is a good example of how fast star kids can turn into mature adults.
Ariel Winter gained recognition after playing a nerdy but cute teen in the comedy series Modern Family. 8 years after the premiere of the first episode, Winter is neither a nerd nor really a teen anymore.
Even though we’ve been watching Emma Watson growing along with her colleagues in 10 years of the Harry Potter saga, we’re still not ready to acknowledge that this confident and elegant lady is the Hermione Granger we fell in love with back in 2001. Now Watson is not only a world-famous actress but also a model and UN Women Goodwill ambassador.
This girl started her acting career with her role in the Cheaper by the Dozen TV series. Since then she started singing, modeling, and dancing. Alyson Stoner is now a big bright star of the Hollywood world.
