Child actors and actresses may have had the advantage of starting early when it comes to honing their acting ability. However, they also had the disadvantage of being in front of the camera during an awkward stage. Others may have not recovered from that stage, but the celebrities on this list grew up to look even better as adults than they were as kids. Check them out here.



Joseph Gordon-Levitt spent a chunk of his teenage years on the set of the sitcom 3rd Rock from the Sun as a teenage alien. He was featured in several teenage magazines, but he said that he did not enjoy being recognized in public. His role proved that he had the acting chops to carry on a long career in Hollywood, but there were still doubts about his looks. But as a grownup, he definitely nailed the part of a dashing debonair. On top of acting, he tried his hand at screenwriting and directing in the movie Don Jon, which also starred him, Scarlett Johansson, Tony Danza, and Julianne Moore.

When she starred in E.T. the Extra Terrestrial, everyone saw just how adorable Drew Barrymore is. However, she spent her teenage years as a wild child, even posing for Playboy magazine. She has since matured into the stunning actress that she is now. It only goes to show that even a celebrity who basically grew up in front of the camera can turn out better with time. She also managed to establish herself in comic roles, started a production company, win acting awards, and even served as an Ambassador Against Hunger for the UN World Food Programme. She has donated more than $1 million to the program.
