Lindsay Lohan is a troubled actress that hasn't starred in a mainstream movie in years. The star has been arrested for drug possession...

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 pitstop 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!

While the rest of the world may be dancing around directly accusing Lindsay Lohan of faking her miscarriage, Joan Rivers has made a career of going where others fear to tread, and at the age of 80, the legendary comedienne is beyond pulling punches.

Always, quick with a quip, when a TMZ reporter asks Joan about Lindsay's miscarriage in the above video, Rivers hilariously replies, "I hope she kept it."

When Joan's daughter expresses her disgust her disgust with the off-color comment, Joan tells her to pipe down and jokes, "I was born with a coat hanger in my ear."

Yup. If you're keeping score at home, that's two fetus jokes within the span of about 8 seconds. Comics half Joan's age can't offend an audience that quickly!

Kode magazine recently featured Lindsay Lohan on its cover, and the reporter she spoke with claims Lindsay drank vodka throughout their interview.

Lindsay Lohan Kode Magazine Cover

Now Lindsay is fighting back against that claim and for once, she actually has a pretty good argument...if it's true.

"Lindsay never spoke to any journalist at Kode," says Lohan's publicist. "The interview was conducted via e-mail."

The folks at Kode, however, aren't taking this one lying down, and for once it seems someone is determined to call Lindsay out for her BS.

"The interview took place and everything stated in the article is fact and came from Lohan herself," says Kode Exectutive editor Jacob Simon. "We have photos chronicling the writer and Lindsay's numerous times together."

Lindsay Lohan stunned viewers at the tail end of her docu-series Lindsay Sunday by revealing she suffered a miscarriage ... but is that even accurate?

The Lindsay Lohan miscarriage reveal was intended as a dramatic moment to cap the controversial (albeit seldom-seen) series on Oprah's OWN network.

Mission accomplished there, but now two sources close to the star are alleging what we're all wondering - that she fabricated the whole sob story.

The insiders tell celebrity gossip site Radar Online that they believe she was never pregnant and bafflingly concocted the tale just to garner sympathy.

“She absolutely made it up,” said one source, adding that it conveniently helps her explain the unprofessional behavior documented on the reality show.

"Lindsay was never pregnant during filming, or in the months after. Lindsay knew she was being perceived as a total slacker ... so this is what Lindsay does."

"She lies! Her family and friends all had no clue about her 'pregnancy' and subsequent miscarriage. Lindsay is once again her own worst enemy.”

Remember last week when Lindsay Lohan co-hosted The View and proudly proclaimed her sobriety is "going great?" Well, surprise! The actress' dry spell lasted about as long as it took for those words to leave her mouth.

Lindsay appears on the cover of the latest Kode magazine, and the interviewer she spoke with claims Linds was not at all shy about swilling vodka throughout their talk.

The magazine claims that Lindsay took a "sip from her newly topped off glass of vodka on the rocks" while discussing her love for Oprah and throwing shade on Barbara Walters for some reason.

And of course, it doesn't end there.

Last night's revelation that Lindsay Lohan suffered a miscarriage recently came as a shock to viewers of her OWN reality show, but apparently TV viewers weren't the only ones taken by surprise.

  • Dina Lohan Paparazzi Photo
  • Oprah Red Carpet Image

If her tweets from last night are any indication, Lindsay's mom, Dina Lohan, found out about her daughter's latest drama the same way as the rest of us.

"Oprah call me," read Dina's brief, cryptic tweet from moments after the season finale of Lindsay aired, concluding with LiLo's shocking revelation.

The terse demand (No one orders Oprah around!) has led to speculation about what exactly Mama Lohan so desperately needed to say to Queen O.

Lindsay Lohan said last night that during a break in the filming for her reality show on OWN, she had a miscarriage - a stunning revelation even from her.

The bombshell came in the final moments of the two-hour finale of Lindsay, her much-maligned and little-watched series that went out with a bang.

"No one knows this, and we can finish after this, I had a miscarriage for the two weeks that I took off," the troubled actress said, fighting off tears.

"It's a very long story," she added after a pause, offering no other details.

Lindsay Lohan, 27, suffered the miscarriage, she explained, during the two weeks she infamously held up production of the series, drawing Oprah's ire.

"I was sick. And mentally that messes with you," she said, distraught.

Obviously, she did not identify the father ... but it makes you wonder.

Whether you're high on life or just high, 4/20 is the day for you.

It's a de facto tribute to all things marijuana and we know more than a handful of celebrities who'll be smoking some bud today.

While there are definitely more than 20 celebrity stoners we could have listed here, this seems like as good a place as any to start.

So, while they roll up a joint and try to work on a Giant M&M Cookies Recipe or a Funfetti Cupcakes Recipe ahead of time, you can roll up a chair and flip through this slideshow.

20 Celebrity Stoners for 4/20
"You knowz mofo be rollin' up summa dat dank ass sticky-icky-icky and gettin' fizaded off the bubonic chronic right muthaf--kin' now." Uhhh, what Snoop said.

Willie Nelson

2. Willie Nelson

Willie Nelson has been arrested more than once for his love of the Mary Jane. He's 80 years old. Can't we all just leave the man alone!


Matthew McConaughey

3. Matthew McConaughey

Alright, alright, alright. Neptune and your mama and surfing and all that other stuff he talked about during the 2014 awards season sort of seems like he's stoned ALL THE TIME.


Chris Brown

4. Chris Brown

Pot normally mellows people out, right? Looks like maybe Chris Brown should smoke MORE of it instead of less.


Rihanna

5. Rihanna

If you follow Rihanna on Instagram you know she doesn't really keep her love of Laughing Grass a secret.


Jenelle Evans

6. Jenelle Evans

Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans would rather GO TO JAIL than submit to random drug testing while on probation. That's...dedication? She also (allegedly) smoked up while pregnant with her second child. And probably her first.


Lindsay Lohan

7. Lindsay Lohan

After multiple stints in rehab, Lindsay Lohan can't quit the reefer. Or the alcohol. And maybe not even the harder drugs that ruined her career AND her looks.


Arnold Schwarzenegger

8. Arnold Schwarzenegger

Arnold Schwarzenegger, body builder, actor, and former governor of California, gave a frank interview where he talked about smoking up.


Bill Clinton

9. Bill Clinton

Governor Bill Clinton said he never inhaled during interviews on his way to the White House. He also said he did not have sex with that woman, for whatever that's worth.


Ryan Lochte

10. Ryan Lochte

If you've ever heard Ryan Lochte give an interview, the fact that he practices the puff, puff, pass as much as he does the butterfly stroke comes as no surprise.


Jeff Bridges

11. Jeff Bridges

The DUDE! The Big Lebowski quotes make this more than just an assumption.


Brooke Mueller

12. Brooke Mueller

Brooke Mueller, ex-wife of Charlie Sheen, prefers hard drugs like her former spouse. In a pinch, weed will do.


Miley Cyrus

13. Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus proudly proclaims that she smokes the Sweet Leaf and blasts pictures of marijuana all over her Bangerz tour. The show itself kind of seems like one big hallucination, so maybe she's doing more than just mariuana.


Bobbi Kristina Brown

14. Bobbi Kristina Brown

Bobbi Kristina Brown might have married her sort-of brother but before that she was making bong videos.


Chace Crawford

15. Chace Crawford

Chace Crawford might be a lesser-known actor who sort of looks like Ian Somerhalder, but that didn't keep him out of the slammer for possession of marijuana.


Woody Harrelson

16. Woody Harrelson

All the dirty hippies love the hash, right? Woody Harrelson is no exception.


Zach Galifianakis

17. Zach Galifianakis

Zach Galifianakis is blazing trails on light night television, probably while being baked.


Jennifer Lawrence

18. Jennifer Lawrence

Paparazzi caught Jennifer Lawrence and The Hunger Games costar Josh Hutcherson getting ready to get high on a balcony in Hawaii.


Justin Bieber

19. Justin Bieber

When Justin Bieber was arrested in Miami, he told cops he had been smoking pot. That explains some of his crazy behaviors. He's just having fun, right?


Michael Phelps

20. Michael Phelps

Another Olympian who likes to get high, Michael Phelps was busted smoking pot between the 2008 and 2012 Summer Games. He also became the spokesperson for Subway. Coincidence?


Notably not pictured? Seth Rogen

Because of Seth Rogen's well-documented devotion to the doobie, and those who love to get high with the actor, he gets a slideshow of its own.

Despite the fact that she has no projects to promote and her reality show has been canceled by Oprah, Lindsay Lohan has been on a full-blown media bender for the past 24 hours. 

Guess that's better than her usual benders.

Lindsay Lohan on The View

Lindsay admitted her sex list was real on last night's Watch What Happens Live and this morning she co-hosted The View, where she shared more lies and not-so-stunning revelations.

Linds kicked the episode off by proclaiming that her sobriety is going "great," and Whoopi Goldberg proved why she's an Oscar winner by somehow managing to keep a straight face.

Goldberg then asked Lohan about her trip to Coachella last weekend, which Lindsay said was better than previous years, because she was in a "different headspace." By which she probably means her head was full of cocaine.
