Growing up as a celebrity child is often both very glamorous and difficult. After all, these kids get whatever they want, yet at the same time they are hounded by the paparazzi 24/7. And while many of them are wee-little when we first meet them through the camera, as they age, there’s one thing that usually determines whether or not the paparazzi will continue to follow them around or leave them alone–the determining factor is whether or not they get H-O-T-T hott. Let’s take a quick look at several child celebs who turned out to be very pleasing on the eye.
With his brooding Russian looks and dark eyes, Anton Yelchin always looked inquisitive and dark as a child. As in adult, this translates into “hot mysterious man.”
Cole and Dylan Sprouse
Cole and Dylan Sprouse got to live their childhood dreams of living in a hotel in The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, and when they grew up we got to live our dreams of looking at those serious studs.
Drew Barrymore sucked all of us in with her cute kid-factor in E.T. Spielberg sure knows how to pick his child actors (though as a Barrymore she was destined for greatness.) Now she’s even spunkier as an adult–and did you see her wearing those tights in Charlie’s Angels?
Will Smith was always handsome. He wasn’t a child when he charmed America in Fresh Prince, but he wasn’t quite grown up either. Though after he manned-up a bit and stacked on some muscle, who could help but swoon?
