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.
Neil Patrick Harris
Neil Patrick Harris is the legendary child star of "Doogie Howser M.D.," a popular sitcom from the early 1990s. Harris found steady success and worked his way up the ladder. Small roles lead to bigger roles and eventually landed him the iconic role of Barney Stinson on "How I Met Your Mother." In addition, he is in a long-term loving relationship and the father of twins.
For a time, Drew Barrymore nearly succumbed to the child star curse. She started acting at age 7 in "E.T." Her teenage years found her struggling with substance abuse. Fortunately, she sobered up and became a Hollywood power player leading to several strong movies and a directorial debut.
