Taylor Momsen’s acting career kicked off with a Shake ‘N’ Bake commercial at age 3, and yes, she’s the adorable Cindy Lou Who in 2000’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
Before landing the role of Little J, Taylor was in the final three to star in Hannah Montana, but we all knew who won there.
In 2011, Taylor announced to Elle that she was no longer focusing on acting and would instead put her energy inro her band, The Pretty Reckless. The St. Louis, Missouri native writes the band’s music, as well as sings and plays guitar, and they’ve toured with The Veronicas and will hit the road with Evanescence in 2011.
One Hollywood fan of Taylor’s work? Heidi Montag. The former Hills star’s song “Blackout” was written by Taylor at just 8, and the eyeliner-loving blonde is also the face of Madonna’s Material Girl clothing line.
