Emma Watson is good buddies with Harry Potter. She portrays Hermione Granger in the wildly popular film series. In 2009, Watson announced...

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.

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!

Everybody has to start somewhere, right? Right. For some of Hollywood's best and brightest, that somewhere is on the playing field and not the movie set. 

Yes, it's true. Many of our favorite stars had aspirations of becoming professional athletes when they were children, just like you probably did. (But not me. I always dreamed of being a rock star. We can all see how THAT turned out.)

You might know that Justin Bieber loves to play hockey, but did you know he's also pretty decent at basketball? And did you know that rapper 2 Chainz was a star high school hoops standout in Atlanta?

Kate Upton, SI model, actress, and all around hottie used to ride horses! And then there's Duchess Kate Middleton who is great at basically everything she does, including besting Prince William in sailing.

Take a look at these 13 celebrity athletes who are probably better athletes than you. And me. (Hey, we're all good at something, right? Right. Let's keep telling ourselves that.)

Denzel Washington

2. Denzel Washington

Before hitting it big in Hollywood and winning two Oscars, Denzel Washington was hitting it big as a basketball player at Fordham University.


Mark Harmon

3. Mark Harmon

Mark Harmon was the starting quarterback at UCLA. He's sort of a quarterback in the NCIS office calling all the plays as Gibbs, right?


Justin Bieber

4. Justin Bieber

In addition to being a singer, dancer, and general douchebag, Justin Bieber is actually quite the basketball player - his mean crossover dribble earned him NBA Celebrity All-Star Game MVP honors!


BONUS! Justin Bieber

5. BONUS! Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber ALSO plays hockey! He once crashed a junior hockey team's practice in Atlanta.


Kate Middleton

6. Kate Middleton

If the Spice Girls ever want to reunite, we volunteer Duchess Kate Middleton as tribute to take over the role of Sporty Spice!


Jason Segel

7. Jason Segel

Jason Segel might not have seen much time on the court, but he WAS Jason Collins' backup in high school. That totally counts!


Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson

8. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson

Before becoming a professional wrestler and eventually an actor, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was leading the University of Miami football team to a National Championship title in 1991.


Bruce Jenner

9. Bruce Jenner

It might be hard to believe by looking at him now, but once upon a time Bruce Jenner was an Olympian.


Kate Upton

10. Kate Upton

Before she was walking the runway in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show and gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Edition, Kate Upton was a nationally ranked equestrian. So many bouncing boob jokes about barrel jumping. So little time.


Jessica Biel

11. Jessica Biel

Jessica Biel's soccer training came in handy when she played Mary Camden on Seventh Heaven. Mary was a star soccer player. Biel also took gymnastics as a child.


2 Chainz

12. 2 Chainz

Before he was 2 Chainz, he was Tauheed Epps (also Tity Boi, but we won't talk about that.) Epps was a star high school basketball player at North Clayon High School in Georgia.


Emma Watson

13. Emma Watson

Emma Watson might look petite and unassuming, but don't let that fool you. She's a star field hockey player.


Kaley Cuoco

14. Kaley Cuoco

Kaley Cuoco might have bought her boobs, but she earned those abs and arms on the tennis court!

If one thing's for sure after looking through this slideshow it's that Joan Rivers' plastic surgeon needs to start handing out his business card on the red carpet. 

Or we could just let people age like they're supposed to so they don't end up looking like Joan Rivers one day. Yeah, there's that option.

Here, so you can see and believe, are 18 stars who are the same age. You can Google if you want, but you might be too busy picking your jaw up off the floor to do that.

18 Stars You Won't Believe Are the Same Age

Jon Hamm and Jared Leto

2. Jon Hamm and Jared Leto

Mad Men's Jon Hamm and Dallas Buyer's Club's Jared Leto are both 42. Maybe it's the long hair that keeps Leto looking so Jordan Catalono-like.


Robin Wright and Halle Berry

Robin Wright and Halle Berry are both 47 years old. Halle just gave birth to her second child while Robin's are grown and flown.


Andrew Lincoln and Jim Parsons

Also joining the 40 club are Andrew Lincoln and The Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons. Looks like killing zombies has added some years to Lincoln.


Leonardo DiCaprio and Seth Green

5. Leonardo DiCaprio and Seth Green

It's hard to believe it, but Leonardi DiCaprio and Seth Green are both 40 years old. Does Seth Green look 40 to you?


Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Watson

Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Watson were born in 1990. In addition to a birth year, they share a love of Dior.


Kim Novak and Joan Rivers

Kim Novak and Joan Rivers were both born in 1933. One of them clearly aged more gracefully...with the help of a better plastic surgeon.


Rob Lowe and Russell Crowe

8. Rob Lowe and Russell Crowe

Rob Lowe and Russell Crowe are 1) poetic and 2) 50 years old. But you couldn't tell it by these photos.


Kim Kardashian and Jessica Simpson

9. Kim Kardashian and Jessica Simpson

Kim Kardashian and Jessica Simpson, both known for their bodies and reality TV star power, are both 33! Incredible!


From booze, to drugs, to just plain ol' genetics, everybody ages. Even Hollywood's rich and famous and attention-seeking reality TV stars.

Some just do it better than others.

And Hollywood's women do it better than the men, even counting Joan Rivers among the lot.

This video is...interesting. Maybe not interesting in the way you're expecting from the title, but we promise - it's worth watching.

Yeah, we're not exactly sure what we just witnessed either, but we know it involved Emma Watson, Sofia Vergara and a set of giant, prosthetic breasts. 

Vergara's thong photos have already made her something of a web celeb, but she's shown us anything like this before.

Some have called the footage creepy and complained that the rubbery mask reminds them of the unfortunate Wayan Brothers film, White Chicks

But whether you find the clip hilarious, unsettling or sexy (God, we hope not) you've give got to give credit to the clever editing work on display here.

Emma Watson isn't really Hermione Granger.

I'm pretty sure the Hogwarts dress code doesn't allow for bare midriffs.

Sporting straight hair, dramatic eye make-up and a variety of hats, she graces the April cover of Elle Magazine.

Inside she reveals more skin AND more details of her life in the spotlight.

She tells the magazine growing up in such a public fashion was rough.

"There are all these actresses who have emerged in the last year or two, and they get to emerge as this complete human being," Emma says. "And I'm so jealous!"

Aw, Emma, don't be jealous. Considering you've gone from 10-year-old child star to 23-year-old movie star with nary a trip to rehab in between, we think you're doing GREAT.

It is all over for Emma Watson and Will Adamowicz.

Well, actually, it was all over for Emma Watson and Will Adamowicz last summer, but the notoriously private former Harry Potter star didn't go public with the break-up until now.

And that's only because her spokesman was forced to confront the issue after photos surfaced of Adamowicz at a New Year's Eve party in New York… with packets of a white substance on the table in front of him.

Adamowicz told The Daily Mirror last night that the substance in question was not drugs, while a rep for Watson distanced his client from any potential scandal by saying:

“Emma and Will separated last summer and are no longer in touch.”

The pair met as students at Oxford in 2011 and kept their relationship very much on The Down Low.

Emma Watson was named Woman of the Year at the 2013 GQ Men of the Year Awards, and few could argue with that after seeing the crop top she wore.

Eat your heart out, Miley Cyrus:

Keeping with her usual elegance, the top was paired with high waisted trousers, but still exposed plenty of skin, especially based on her modest standards.

The star of the awards show was, without a doubt, Watson's stomach. The bar has thus been raised for all future crop-top red carpet appearances, ladies.

Miley, Lily Collins and Naya Rivera? Your move.

What do you think of Emma Watson's look?

What does an actor do when he or she has a role to which he or she can't relate?

They try to put themselves in that person's shoes, or in Emma Watson's case, in their tumblr blog.

When watching the The Bling Ring trailer one might wonder how Watson - a woman who is, by all accounts, rather unassuming, despite her star status - might find a way to relate to the character of Nicki in the upcoming Sofia Coppola film.

Humble as ever, Emma Watson is featured in the latest issue of Teen Vogue.

And The Bling Ring star tells the magazine that she had no idea the sort of impact she had on popular culture in America until she enrolled at Brown in 2009.

“It sounds stupid, or completely unbelievable, but that was when I really realized that I was famous," Watson says of coming to live in the States. “There are still days when I deal with [fame] horribly and there are days when I deal with it really well."
