Child stars rarely make the transition from Disney movie headliner to adult Hollywood vet. But these 20 celebrities belong to an exclusive club of entertainers that have been famous their whole lives. While our parents were taping Honor Roll certificates on the fridge, these stars were winning Young Artist Awards, Tony Awards and even Oscars.
Actresses like Mila Kunis and Drew Barrymore charmed us before their 18th birthdays and continue to thrive in the spotlight decades later. And when it comes to music, we fell in love with recording artists like Fergie and Beyonce on TV shows long before we heard their voices on the radio. Whether singing or acting, these luminaries prove you don’t have to be a certain age to have talent. And the icing on the cake is they were all adorable, too.
