10 Actors We’ve Watched Grow Up On-Screen

By  | 

Many of our favorite actors were in TV shows and movies we watched back when we were just kiddies. Remember Miranda Cosgrove in The School of Rock and Shia Labeouf in Even Stevens? They were so darn cute and little! As the years went on, these actors are still in some of our fave TV shows and movies and wow, have they grown…

Amanda Bynes

Amanda got her start acting and being her normal goofy self in All That. Then came The Amanda Show, Big Fat Liar, What A Girl Wants, She’s The Man…and a DUI. The usual.



Dakota Fanning

It’s hard to imagine that Dakota went from the young sassy Lorraine in Uptown Girls to the now grown-up and poised vampire in the Twilight movies. Time flies.



Victoria Justice

While we’re still mourning the loss of Zoey 101, we’re glad Vic is still around. And here’s Victoria in The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. She’s only 12!



Hayden Panettiere

We cannot get over how cute little Hayden is in Remember The Titans! She went from an adorb little girl with crazy hair to a BA butt-kicking cheerleader.

Miranda Cosgrove

We watched Miranda in The School of Rock when she was hardly 10-years-old. Nine years later we’re still lovin’ the girl like she’s our BFF.

Taylor Momsen

Taylor went from playing the cute and innocent Cindy Lou Who to becoming the fierce rocker chick that she is now. It’s crazy to see how much Taylor’s, ya know, gone kinda crazy…

Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint

It’s so weird watching the first Harry Potter movie and then watching the last one. The wizards are just so OLD now, ya know?

Josh Hutcherson

Time sure has treated our Josh nicely. He went from the cutest little boy ever to the studliest teenager we know. Check out an interview he did after filming Miracle Dogs back in the day. So effing adorbs!

Shia LaBeouf

Shia was goofy and pretty darn funny looking back in his Even Steven days. While he may still be goofy, now he’s just downright hot.

Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato

Selena and Demi were childhood BFFs in Barney & Friends and are still besties now, albeit way more famous. This is pretty much every single person’s dream come true.

Who have you enjoyed watching grow up the most? Did we leave anyone out?
