15 Child Actors From Our Favorite Movies That Look So Different Now That They Are All Grown Up

We all grow up.

No matter how much you may want to stay in your younger years, we all grow up as time goes on. And while one can cling to their youth, it doesn’t help anyone to stay stuck in the past. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t look at the past for beautiful nostalgia. Now, I am not even that old but when I rewatch famous Disney series like Hannah Montana, Wizards of Waverly Place, or even Zack and Cody, it brings back the memories of my innocent naive self.


So no matter how old you get, rewatching old movies and series can sometimes make you remember the good times when life was simply easier. But I am sad to say that we are going to break that bubble today. You see, just as viewers grow up, so do the actors that starred in our favorite childhood movies. And at times, they look so different that we can hardly recognize them. From an old favorite Teletubbies to the infamous horror movie Orphan, you are going to see a lot of different actors all grown up.

If you are ready for an existential crisis, just scroll below and try to enjoy.

#1 Brett Kelly from Bad Santa.

They don’t even look like the same person anymore somehow.

#2 Corey Feldman from Gremlins.


The nose is still there.

#3 Dante Basco from Hook.


I wonder how he will look with red hair today.

#4 Elden Henson from The Mighty Ducks.


The angle in the after picture is messing with my head.

#5 Hatty Jones from Madeline.


She looks absolutely adorable.

#6 Henry Thomas from E.T.


I think he still works as an actor as I have seen him before in movies.

#7 Isabelle Fuhrman from Orphan.


One of my favorite horror movies and the actor looks completely different now.

#8 Jess Smith from Teletubbies.


She could still star as the sun today if she wanted.

I only remembered him as the annoying kid from that movie.

#10 Kevin Zegers from Air Bud.


Can you tell that I haven’t watched most of these movies?

#11 Melissa Joan Hart from Sabrina, the Teenage Witch.

I only know the new Sabrina show and the less said about that, the better.

#12 Miko Hughes from Pet Sematary.


The remake of Pet Sematary didn’t do the original justice in my opinion but it wasn’t bad.

#13 Spencer Breslin from The Cat in the Hat.
