Despite stereotypes, many child actors have achieved success as adults, but some fall victim to the child star curse, abusing drugs and acting out in an attempt to deal with their fame.
1. Kristen Stewart
Kristen Stewart's breakout role was as Jodie Foster's daughter in "Panic Room." She was 12 at the time, and her career has skyrocketed since. She landed the role of Bella Swan in the hugely popular "Twilight" saga in 2008. Unlike cursed child stars, she keeps a level head and is rarely seen acting out.
