When Michael was dancing he was forgetting about all the sad things in his life, and even if only for a few hours or minutes, he was feeling happy. That is why his biggest dream was the creation of his own family, where he Michael, would become that father for his children that he never had.

All of her summer vacations Nathalie was spending in the theatre camp, since ten years old she was already attending various castings, this way when one of the “Revlon” agents have offered her becoming a model when she was eleven, she has refused, as she wanted to stay concentrated only upon her carrier as an actress, she always was very ambitious, and knew exactly what she wanted or liked, and that is why she worked really hard in order to get those things, that was the thing which made her different from all the other kids around her. She was a very serious child. Today Natalie is one of the most successful actresses in Hollywood; her talent is highly rated as she is able to perform in any genre.

After finishing the school, Kirsten has continued her carrier as an actress, which later after she became popular has made going through some difficult period of time, in one of her interviews she even accused her mother for the fact that she has stolen her childhood, later she also stated that probably it was made for her own sake, but still it was hard for her.

When she was six years old she performed in the legendary movie directed by Steven Spielberg “The alien” and that was the time when she made the final choice of a profession. After this movie she played in a few others that were less successful, but gave her a title of America’s idol. Her sharp transformation from a regular child into a super star was not simple, as she started attracting attention already not as an actress but as a source of some “dirty” sensations, such as: alcoholism, addiction to drugs and a few attempts of suicide that brought her to psychiatric clinics. When she was fifteen she sued her own mother and won the right to take care of her carrier on her own. A year later she published an autobiographic book “the little lost girl”, and a year later she was already posing nude for “Playboy” magazine. It is very difficult for a child actor to pass from a child to adult roles, but Drew has solved this problem in her own way- she changed the genre of her characters into a sexy villain, so all the public turned the attention upon her wiles, instead of age. Today the almost forty year’s old actress is the head of her own producing studio.

    Is this is a fate or their hard work, or both in the mix. Still, one cannot blame the list for the non-talented kid sin it. All the celebrities enumerated here are definitely very talented and have reached certain heights in the entertainment industry. I believe they all deserve a Hollywood star even if some of them are absolutely crazy to my mind.

  2. Olga says:

    Well those kids have really won that Hollywood star and I am wondering how did it helped them if in the majority of cases it has simply ruined their lives instead of making them happy, as they have done everything they could and even more in order to destroy their own lives. Probably there is an age for any stage in person’s life, and if this stage is happening earlier than it is supposed to than it might bring to non expected consequences.

    From all this gathering of child stars most of all I admire Justin Timberlake, as he has done a great job in order to become the person he is today, from the one that he was when he started his carrier. The other fact that I respect about him, is no matter how hard it was for him to let go on his love to Britney Spears, he managed not to break but to go on living and become successful, usually when people are suffering as much as he did they are breaking from inside and start dealing with the depression they are in by means of alcohol or drugs, while he didn’t appeal to any of those. In fact all he has done was working hard. His song “Cry me a river” has shown how deep he was hurt, but also has shown that he doesn’t care, and it was truly a great song, while the song “What goes around comes back around” which was written many years later when he was already happy with another woman, has shown how much he was hurt by Britney, and that he didn’t go through it that easy as he was showing. Well what can I say, he is that rare example of a child star whose fame didn’t kill all the good things in him, and I guess his parents have done a great job in his education.

    Mmm, I guess if there is a child star who has gone through all the kind of troubles in her life, than it is Drew Barrymore for sure. During her life till teenager age, she tried everything- from all types of alcohol to all types of drugs, which even lead her to suing her own parent. How can a person ever do something like this? She looks like a very kind woman and nice woman now, but it took her a lot of effort and strength to become that person that she is today, and I feel sorry for her parents who had to suffer all the changes in their daughter’s character. And from the other side, I guess they are the ones responsible for her bad behavior, it is a well known fact that what a parent puts into his child, same thing the parent has back. Drew has been a very nice girl in her childhood, but the moment when she was growing and needed her parents most of all, apparently they were not there for her as they wanted their daughter to be a star much more, than they wanted her to be happy, so eventually they got that kind of result.
