5. Drew Barrymore
Oh! You didn’t know Drew Barrymore was a child star? Well, you know now. In 1982, she starred as an adorable little sister in E.T. the Extra Terrestrial. Boy, did she steal hearts! It was a real pleasure to see her reappear in other movies like Firestarter (where she played Charlie) and Cat Eye. Barrymore appeared in over 20 movies between 1985 and 1995, after which she had another breakout moment due to her role in 1996’s Scream. And she has stayed busy since then. Growing into the world of paparazzi and exposure to a lot of things, the beautiful actress once battled substance addiction, but she is now sober. Her experience has made her a good mum as she stated. Yes, a mum. The former child star is now a grown woman with two kids.
6. Selena Gomez
Speaking of child stars, our Disney lovelies cannot be left out. Selena Gomez is more of a musician now, but she once graced our TV screens when she was younger. She got her start in showbiz with a two-year run on the kids show Barney and Friends. She is better known for playing Alex Russo on Disney Channel’s television series Wizards of Waverly Place. She also starred in other Disney television series such as The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and Hannah Montana.
