Ashley Olsen is the sister of Mary-Kate Olsen. She used to be on Full House and now she's just known as a terrible, terrible dresser....

Hollywood has a bit of a Peter Pan complex sometimes never wanting its child actors to grow up. But grow up they must as people do.

Occasionally, the actors and actresses we love as children make the transition to adult stars ... sometimes making a pit stop as amateur porn stars ... before going on to transition successfully into adult actors known for more than just their childhood roles.

Sometimes those transitions are less successful and we spend their infamous adulthoods wondering what happened?

(Drugs and alcohol happened, that's what. Looking at you, Lindsay Lohan.)

Others, like second-time mama Drew Barrymore, go through seriously rough growing pains and emerge on the other side bigger and better than anyone could have imagined. Maybe there's hope for LiLo yet.

And then there's Leonardo DiCaprio who just gets better and better with age. Seriously. He's a fine wine.

Take a look at these 21 child actors who grew up and stayed famous. Or infamous. 

21 Child Celebrities Then and Now
Anna Paquin won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in The Piano. She went on to play Rogue and Sookie Stackhouse. Not too bad.
View As List
Anna Paquin

1. Anna Paquin

Anna Paquin won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in The Piano. She went on to play Rogue and Sookie Stackhouse. Not too bad.


Amanda Bynes

2. Amanda Bynes

Okay, so we didn't say they were ALL success stories. Amanda Bynes was a delightful child star whose hard-partying ways caught up to her. Kind of like another star we know...


Lindsay Lohan

3. Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan had a bright, bright future when she hit the scene. And then her star went completely out and now she can't even keep a reality show afloat.


Britney Spears

4. Britney Spears

Britney Spears got her start as a Mousketeer (like a few more faces we'll see in this gallery). Now she's a headliner in Las Vegas.


Christina Aguilera

5. Christina Aguilera

Teen singing rival to Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera was also a Mouseketeer. She managed to keep her nose clean while growing up and landed a job on The Voice.


Christina Ricci

6. Christina Ricci

Famous for playing Wednesday Addams, Christina Ricci was a rising star in the 90s. She's kept an air of mystery through the years.


Dakota Fanning

7. Dakota Fanning

Dakota Fanning started making films when she was in kindergarten. She eventually landed herself a role on Twilight. Not sure if that's good or bad.


Daniel Radcliffe

8. Daniel Radcliffe

Daniel Radcliffe was only part of the way through filming the Harry Potter franchise when he decided to shed his child-star image by performing in the nude in Equus. Yep. That'll do it.


Drew Barrymore

9. Drew Barrymore

Perhaps one of the most successful child stars to make it as an adult is Drew Barrymore. She's still setting trends with that hair of hers.


Elijah Wood

10. Elijah Wood

Elijah Wood will forever and always be Frodo Baggins no matter what. Unless he pulls a Daniel Radcliffe and gets naked on Broadway. Maybe.


Justin Timberlake

11. Justin Timberlake

Before he was a sex symbol, Justin Timberlake was a Mouseketeer and boyfriend to one Britney Jean Spears.


Kirsten Dunst

12. Kirsten Dunst

Kirsten Dunst is still making headlines these days, though it's for the controversial things she says and not so much the movies she's in.


Leonardo DiCaprio

13. Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardi DiCaprio is like a fine wine. He just keeps getting better and better with age.


Macaulay Culkin

14. Macaulay Culkin

Once upon a time, Macaulay Culkin ordered pizza while he was home alone. Now Macaulay Culkin eats pizza and sings about it.


Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen

15. Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen are probably among the absolute most famous child stars ever. EVER.


Neil Patrick Harris

16. Neil Patrick Harris

From Doogie Howser to Hedwig to Barney Stinson, Neil Patrick Harris is still amazing.


Rupert Grint

17. Rupert Grint

Rupert Grint might be Ron Weasley, but as an adult Rupert Grint is just sort of hot. While he's not making too many films right now, we certainly have hopes that will change.


Ryan Gosling

18. Ryan Gosling

Hey, girl. Check out Ryan Gosling as a child star and check out Ryan Gosling's pecs now.


Shia LeBeouf

19. Shia LeBeouf

So maybe Shia LeBeouf's success is on the decline, but he sure did have a good run between the time he was a kid and the time he went crazy.


Emma Watson

20. Emma Watson

Emma Watson is working her way up the Hollywood ladder by making smart choices and staying out of trouble. Good girl, Emma!

What do Barack Obama, Nicole Kidman, and Justin Bieber have in common? They've all made a sex tape?

They're all left-handed, making them quite elite for more than just politics, movies, and music.

Between 7 and 10 percent of people worldwide are left-handed. Why does that matter?

Well, because quite a few of Hollywood's elite also happen to be southpaws, and an uncanny number of politicians around the globe are too, for that matter.

Take a look at this list of 21 left-handed celebrities to see the one thing that unites them all:

21 Left Handed Celebrities
Lady Gaga might be pointing to her engagement ring from Taylor Kinney here, but she could just as well be showing off the fact that she's left-handed.
View As List
Lady Gaga

1. Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga might be pointing to her engagement ring from Taylor Kinney here, but she could just as well be showing off the fact that she's left-handed.


Barack Obama

2. Barack Obama

The POTUS, Barack Obama, is but one of many Presidents who are (or were) left-handed.


Justin Bieber

3. Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber is left-handed. It's apparently his preferred hand for stogie smoking.


Angelina Jolie

4. Angelina Jolie

One half of famous couple Brangelina, Angelina Jolie is a leftie.


Prince William

5. Prince William

Prince William is left-handed like his dad. Since this seems to be genetic, maybe the Royal Baby will follow in their footsteps.


Sarah Jessica Parker

6. Sarah Jessica Parker

Sarah Jessica Parker is a southpaw! That means her alter ego Carrie Bradshaw was too!


Julia Roberts

7. Julia Roberts

Julia Roberts' dominant hand is the left one. She probably would've grabbed the Oscar with it if she'd won.


Bill Clinton

8. Bill Clinton

Bill Clinton, grandfather-to-be, is a leftie like so many other Presidents have been


Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

9. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

While it's typical for only ONE twin in a pair to be left-handed, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are BOTH lefties.


Tom Cruise

10. Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise is a leftie. He's also dating Laura Prepon. Those two things probably aren't related at all.


Oprah Winfrey

11. Oprah Winfrey

If being left handed in any way helped Oprah Winfrey become so successful, then we want to be left handed too.


Phil Mickelson

12. Phil Mickelson

Apparently, being left handed gives people a predisposition to being good at golf. That's the case for Phil Mickelson.


Demi Moore

13. Demi Moore

Demi Moore had three babies with ex-husband Bruce Willis. Both of them are left-handed, so there's a good chance their girls are, too.


Bill Gates

14. Bill Gates

Billionaire computer genius Bill Gates is a leftie. Turns out being right-brained is really great for guys like him.


Matt Lauer

15. Matt Lauer

Matt Lauer keeps his mic-hand strong...errr...his left hand. Because he's left-handed.


Jon Stewart

16. Jon Stewart

Jon Stewart emphatically uses his left hand to wave around his pen during tapings of The Daily Show. It's become a thing of his.


Celine Dion

17. Celine Dion

Celine Dion is a Canadian leftie. Not that there's any correlation. She's Canadian AND a leftie.


Nicole Kidman

18. Nicole Kidman

Australian stunner and wife to Keith Urban, Nicole Kidman is a southpaw from Down Under.


Seth Rogan

19. Seth Rogan

Seth Rogan is a southie! Wonder if that's the hand he uses to toke or if he keeps that one free for mocking KimYe?


Bruce Willis

20. Bruce Willis

Bruce Willis, currently married to Emma Heming, does not have an expendable left hand. (I mean, who does, really, but still.)


Morgan Freeman

21. Morgan Freeman

Morgan Freeman is a leftie. You're reading this caption in Morgan Freeman's voice right now.


Being left-handed is commonly associated with intelligence and creativity, not to mention those terrible ink smears along the side of their dominant hand.

Seriously, what's a leftie have to do to get the right kind of desk around here??

Despite their minority status, left-handed people are more likely to excel in music, math, and sports; based on scientific studies and anecdotal evidence, that seems to hold true. 

Just don't expect Bieber to be a poster child for International Left Handers Day.

Today is National Siblings Day! The other day a year we pretend to like our built-in best friends because social media tells us to. (The first day is Christmas, because presents, obvs.)

In honor of National Siblings Day, which is probably a totally made up day created by someone attempting to bury the hatchet with a brother or sister by publicly professing that Imma let you finish by my sibling is the best sibling ever, our celebrity gossip editors thought it would be grand to take a look at some of our favorite star siblings:

PETA is ripping fashion designer duo Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen for using animal pelts to create their latest backpack, which retails for around $17,000.

That's not a typo.

“What the Olsens lack in creativity, they try to make up for with shock value,” the animal rights group said in a statement regarding the pricey accessory.

PETA Hates Olsen Twins

PETA protesters (seen here in 2008) have gone after the Olsen Twins for years.

The backpack is a patchwork design made of various animal furs, a fact that has PETA livid with the twosome to the point of bitter name-calling.

"If it looks like a troll and acts like a troll, it's probably a Trollsen Twin - or somebody wearing one of their new totes," the group continues.

PETA calls on consumers not to purchase the products "which are made from the fur and skins of innocent animals" or anything by the Olsens.

Ashley Olsen and Mary Kate Olsen, who jointly run The Row, captured the Womenswear Designer of the Year honors at the CFDA Fashion Awards in June.

They should probably be on the lookout for paint can assaults.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen turn 26 years old today ... which will totally make anyone who remembers them on Full House for freaking ever ago feel old.

Following their acting debut as infants, the twins appeared together in a variety of TV, film and video projects throughout their child and teenage years.

Through their company Dualstar, the Olsens branched out into fashion and have become some of the wealthiest women in the entertainment industry.

Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen

You gotta respect Mary-Kate and Ashley for becoming such moguls, if nothing else. The birthday girls work hard. Because we gotta ask ...

Olsen Twins: Who'd you rather ...

At the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Awards Monday night, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen won the 2012 Womenswear Designers of the Year award.

For their work on their own line, the Row, obviously.

Johnny Depp was also lauded for his personal style, though just one night after rocking with The Black Keys at the MTV Movie Awards, Depp opted to sit this one out.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

The 48-year-old Dark Shadows star wasn't present to accept his Fashion Icon award, so his friend and Cry-Baby director John Waters accepted on his behalf.

The night belonged to the Olsens, although Olivier Sarkozy, who is reportedly cozying up to Mary-Kate of late, was not on hand to support his girl. Oh well.

Here's a look at some of the big fashion winners from the event:

Johnny Depp and Ashley Olsen got it on, according to a tabloid.

The Dark Shadows star claims to be happy with Vanessa Paradis, his longtime partner and the mother of his two children, despite reports that the two are on the rocks.

This story will only fuel that narrative.

Hunk in Spain

In Touch says that on February 27, Johnny was spotted making an exit from a building connected to Ashley’s apartment building “looking like he didn’t want to be seen.”

In fact, an worker in the adjacent building confirms, “An e-mail went around to the employees saying Johnny Depp was using our building to try to avoid paparazzi.”

It turns out the star, 48, was leaving 23-years younger Ashley’s loft.

“It was quiet in her apartment, like it was just the two of them in there,” an insider recalls. “It didn’t seem like it was just a visit between friends.”

Whatever the twosome were up to, it certainly left Johnny exhausted. When the star finally left the next day, “he looked like he was out of it,” an onlooker said.

We're convinced. You?

Ashley Olsen retired from eating a long time ago.

But in the latest issue of Elle UK, the former Full House star says she's also giving up the business that made her famous. And a billionaire.

“We worked non-stop until we were 18," Ashley says of herself and her twin. "Then we decided to take a break and go to school – and that was when we decided to question whether we would carry on in entertainment. It was time to step behind the process. I wanted to work on other things."

And now? The 25-year old is content to remain away from the camera, she says, concluding:

"It doesn’t mean I’m not interested in Hollywood, I like the way it operates and the people who are involved and the sense of possibility. But if I ever do get back in, it’s not going to be as an actress. It just felt right to move away.”

Justin Timberlake and Ashley Olsen may be dating, Us reports.

They're both newly single, they're both former child stars and they both have their own fashion labels. Pretty much a match made in heaven right there.

The celebrity gossip source does cite some actual evidence (term used loosely), claiming they've been inseparable (and flirty!) in and around NYC of late.

We heard the same about Justin and Olivia Wilde, but hey ...

JT in the Hizzy

One insider close to the pair (spotted together at the Greenwich Hotel, an SNL afterparty, two Broadway shows and a polo match outside the city) says:

"They are hooking up."

Consider us sold. Adds another source of the twosome, who both recently ended previous relationships: "They're really trying to keep it on the down-low."

An Olsen source says that the former sitcom kid turned fashion mogul is "aware of Justin's reputation with women, but...They're in the same head space."

We're not sure what that means, but it sounds HOT!

Ashley Olsen is single once again.

The actress and fashion designer split up with actor beau Justin Bartha after more than two years and plenty of engagement rumors together.

Timberlake and Biel Photo

The notoriously private former child star and her beau issued no comment on why they called off the relationship, and we don't expect one.

While Mary-Kate still works on the big and small screen, Ashley retired from acting to focus on fashion. She's actually the CEO of two companies.

Justin can be seen in The Hangover 2 this summer.
