17 Kids From Our Favorite Movies That Are All Grown Up and Gorgeous

We hate to tell you this, but even your favorite children from well-known movies are all grown up now and don’t look like they used to. Some of them gave up their acting career and are living ordinary lives, while others continued acting and have become older right before our eyes.

We can say with 100% certainty that these talented folks are all grown up and stunning, and they’ve become interesting people as we’ve watched them on-screen. For those who think that the 1990s, the 2000s, and even the 2010s weren’t that long ago, here at Bright Side, we’ll show you just how quickly time has flown through the coming of age of these 17 notable boys and girls.
