Time does interesting things to people — for some, time does to appearance what alcohol does to most socialites’ vision — it makes ugly people beautiful, but others are less fortunate.
Many child stars from the mid- to late-nineties and early 2000’s are still working in the entertainment industry. We are so used to hearing about child stars who went off the deep end, but for every Leonardo , Lohan, or Furlong there are many more hard at work and continuing to be involved with cool projects. I root for the success of these child stars as if they were friends I grew up with.
Hollywood has a bit of a Peter Pan complex sometimes never wanting its child actors to grow up. But grow up they must as people do.
