Hollywood capitalizes on the public’s fascination with child stars. We love to see them gracing the screens with their adorable precociousness, eager to track their progress and see whether they’re on the right path or whether they have gone off the rails. Take Dakota Fanning for example; she was cast in so many big Hollywood films playing opposite the biggest leading actors like Tom Cruise and Denzel Washington, and she became a huge star!
The difficulty in being a child star is that eventually you’ll grow out of being the cute, precocious kid you used to be, and people’s interest may start to wane. This doesn’t always happen but usually when it does, it’s rather pitiful.
