Some child stars have made the decision to leave Hollywood for good and live a life of relative anonymity. These stars, on the other hand, have continued to deliver outstanding performances, dominate the box office, and win significant awards.

Here are some of the most famous kid stars who are still going strong.

Wilson, Mara

Mara Wilson debuted in Mrs. Doubtfire at the age of six and Matilda at the age of nine before putting acting on the back burner. Where Am I Now? a book by the writer and activist, was released lately.

In 2016, she starred in the films True Stories of Girlhood and Accidental Fame, as well as appearing on Broad City and lending her voice to animated series such as BoJack Horseman, Big Hero 6: The Series, and Helluva Boss.

“Once, someone I considered a friend asked, ‘How does it feel to know you’ve peaked?’ with a wide smile.” Wilson wrote about the dangers of early stardom for girls in a February 2021 op-ed in the New York Times.

“I didn’t know what to say at the time, but now I think it’s the incorrect question. I haven’t reached my limit because The Narrative is no longer a story that someone else is creating for me. I’m sure I’ll be able to compose it myself.”

Connelly had not particularly earth-shattering parts in The Rocketeer, Mulholland Falls, Inventing the Abbots, and others after completing her iconic quest opposite David Bowie in the 1986 fantasy classic Labyrinth—but critics took notice of her devastating turn in Requiem for a Dream, in which she played an aspiring fashion designer descending into heroin addiction.
