The Most Successful Child Movie Stars

5 October 2009 9:50 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

It seems to happen all the time in Hollywood, a child star will emerge, hit the big time for a few years and then completely disappear into obscurity. Speaking of which, where the heck has Hayley Joel Osment gone?!

Every now and again however, a child star will emerge and fight their way to make it in the movie business. Yahoo have compiled a list of the most successful child actors and actresses which you can view here.

They’ve also got quite a few facts on each of them. Did you know for instance that Jodie Foster was mauled by a lion?! Neither did I! »

Daytime Emmys Preparty: Before They Were Movie Stars, They Were Soap Stars

This Sunday is a big day for daytime TV enthusiasts everywhere. The Daytime Emmys are here, and Sesame Street will be honored, Vanessa Williams will host and Tyra will probably wear an awesome weave.

Movie Stars For Emmy

Since the EMMYs have 2,741 categories, we only focus on two things: first, how our favorite shows did and second, which big screen stars other than La Pfeiffer (she's always there with her television kingpin husband) will show up. Which of them got nominated for their small screen sojourns whether longform or more movie-like?

Speaking of which...

Drew Barrymore on the set of Going the Distance

Yes, you, Drew. But you knew she knew (everyone knew) that her affecting work in Grey Gardens as "Little Edie" was going to make the grade. "Big Edie" Jessica Lange also won a nomination for the narrative feature based on -- but also sort of jumping off from and commenting on -- the famous beloved documentary of the same name. I hope to have an interview with their director here soon.

Before we get to the rest of the big screen folks, here's the nominees »
