They've been famous since they were kids and now they're still in the spotlight...

Celebrities who find fame as child stars are forever remembered as kids but many of them look very different now.

Scarlett Johansson (born 22 November 1984) began her acting career at the age of 10 and netted a role opposite Robert Redford in The Horse Whisperer.

Now her pin-up looks and precocious talent have made her an international star in quirky films including Lost In Translation and Vicky Christina Barcelona.

Other actresses like Kirsten Dunst, Drew Barrymore and Kristen Stewart have made successful transitions from child stars to adults.

Notorious party girl Lindsay Lohan seems to have found the change more difficult though and now looks dramatically different to her angelic younger self as seen in The Parent Trap.

The Harry Potter films thrust a young Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson into the limelight but all have since taken on daring roles to shed their youthful image.

Formerly innocent Disney stars like Britney Spears, Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus also target a more grown-up audience now.

The transformation taking child stars to adulthood can often be surprising – Jerry Maguire cutie Jonathan Lipnicki is practically unrecognisable these days while Home Alone’s Macaulay Culkin isn’t quite as sweet now he’s older.

Heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprio (born 11 November 1974) showed talent from an early age and won his first Oscar nomination for What’s Eating Gilbert Grape? in 1993.

His Hollywood career flourished and Leo proved a handsome romantic lead opposite Kate Winslet in the record-breaking 1997 film Titanic.

It’s not just actors and singers who grow up before our eyes – Prince Harry and Prince William have both matured in public and are now great ambassadors for the royal family.

We love looking at how child stars have changed from then to now.
