If you’ve ever thought about what your life would have turned out like if you would have given up prep school and slumber parties for on-set tutors and red carpet events, don’t get too regretful… Take a look at these child stars who prove that being famous at an early age isn’t exactly a recipe for adulthood success:
1. Amanda Bynes
She went from making us LOL at her jokes on The Amanda Show to saying WTF?!? at her tweets and videos.
2. Lindsay Lohan
She seemed sweet and innocent when we first saw her on the big screen in The Parent Trap, but these days she’s probably wishing a long-lost twin could switch places with her to appear at court and rehab while she parties.
3. Justin Bieber
He stole girls’ hearts with his swoopy hair and purple outfits when he first came onto the scene, but now he’s wearing bedazzled construction hats and baggy pants. Not to mention taking every opportunity (even airport security lines) to be shirtless.
4. Britney Spears
She was the Queen of the Teens back in the day, having everything most girls would kill for (including Justin Timberlake), but her breakdown resulted in a bald head and Kevin Federline. *Shudder*
5. Macaulay Culkin
So loveable and so cute back in his Home Alone and My Girl days… what happened?!
