Everyone goes through an awkward phase at some point in their lives. We all hope to get it done and over with early like in grade school rather than later in high school. Even though these child stars were in the spotlight, they experience the same things that us normal folk do like being painfully awkward and dare I even say, and ugly duckling. Check out how these kids turned into swans as adults.
#1 Lindsay Lohan
Let’s face it the freckles were adorable when she was in movies like The Parent Trap, but despite all she has gone through in her adult life, she is smoking hot now.
#2 Danica McKellar
Ahhh Winnie Cooper…. I always wondered what happened to her and now she looks amazing all grown up.
#3 Jerry O’Connell
Jerry O’Connell is one of the most changed from childhood. He has truly transformed from chubby Vern Tessio from Stand By Me to the sexy hunk of man with the chiseled face that we see today.
#4 Selena Gomez
Did you know that Selena started out on Barney and Friends? Look at her now!
#5 Josh Saviano
He definitely grew in to that nose and ears of his quite nicely.
#6 Candice Cameron Bure
I do not think Candice really went through a truly awkward stage, but she is a total knock out nowadays.
#7 Eric Lloyd
As a kiddo, he was a cutey patootie, but as a grown man, wowzas!
#8 Alex D. Linz
Here is another one who was super cute as a kiddo, but he is a total knock out now.
#9 Daniel Radcliffe
Yes! We were so happy to watch Harry Potter transform from this awkward little boy to this devilishly handsome man he is today.
#10 Alyssa Milano
Did she ever really have an awkward stage? I think not.
Zendaya, what a stunner! She finally grew into that big gorgeous smile of hers.
#12 Nicholas Hoult
You probably didn’t realize you adored Hoult back in 2002 in About A Boy, but you definitely know today you’re thinking, “How ‘bout that man, girl…”
#13 Justin Berfield
It is amazing how much he still looks the same yet as an adult, he is no where near as awkward as he was as a kid. I would say he grew in to his good looks nicely.
#14 Demi Lovato
Now talk about a mega transformation… What a gorgeous swan you have become Miss Demi Lovato.
#15 Alyson Stoner
We recognize this cutey as the little girl who could dance her butt off in Missy Elliots music video. Check her out now.. Wow!!
#16 Alexa Vega
Alexa Vega was always a great looking kid, but in her grown woman body, she is one thick goddess!
#17 Evanna Lynch
The adorably nerdy Luna Lovegood was a favorite in the Harry Potter universe, but in real life, Evanna Lynch has become a favorite of every man on Earth. Wow!
#18 Daniel Curtis Lee
Who would have though that Simon would end up so hot?!
#19 Lacey Chabert
Lacey has gone from every teen boy’s dream girl to every adult male’s fantasy.
#20 Dylan & Cole Sprouse
These two were ridiculously adorable in this pic, but as a parent who watched Zack and Cody with her kiddos, I got to see all of the awkward stages of them growing up. They look like handsome young men now.
