People who were good looking as children but ugly as adults
Most kids I see, I think are not bad-looking. But when they grow up, I find a good portion of them turn homely.
Has anyone else noticed this phenomenon?
A typical child has flawless skin, a tiny nose, large eyes, and full red lips, exactly the sort of features that are considered beautiful in adults. Very few adults keep those features, what you're describing is normal maturity.
I just wonder if it's more prevelant in child stars than in ordinary people. Does a child with the genes for strong features photograph unusually well?
Nature makes the young of most species look cute to reinforce the nurturing instincts of the parents.
Rick Santorum is probably the worse High School photo, but Paul Ryan is dorkier in his photo.
Wil Wheaton owns this thread. Gorgeous when young in "Stand By Me," (objectively, I'm not a pedo), and now a kinda doughy Plain Jane of the highest order.
Robert Blake. He was cute little Mickey from The Little Rascal and graduated as an ogre. Even as a young man in "In Cold Blood" he was looking rough.
All the kids from Little Rascal looked odd to me except Mickey. He seemed the most "normal" looking.
Several years ago we were at a family friend's house. She and her husband were in the process of adopting an Asian baby. Well, he was around 2-years-old. Anyway, they were hosting a party and passing around photos. One of their other friends, an older woman I'd never met, looked at the pictures and said, "Aww, he's so cute! But too bad he's gonna get ugly. Asians babies turn into ugly adults." The rest of us were like... o_O
Actually Asians and Hispanics are often ugly as babies and get better looking as they age. I've seen Mexican babies that are huge fat blobs covered with hair that apparently falls out after they're born but damn they are ugly when first born. Like little gorillas.
The Dionne quintuplets own this thread. Them and Caroline Kennedy.
I don't think MC was that good looking as a child, though, R19.
I didn't think MC was cute at all. Pale and sickly looking. As an adult, he just looks even more pale and sickly.
Racist mutha fucker. I guess Arnold and Webster are cute cause you can pat their nappy heads. But they'll grow up to be racist, after all your blonde white woman.
Fuck yourself faggot trash.
Rick Schroeder. Besides his nose being abnormally small for the size of his overly round face, his skin is wrinkled, parched leather. He looks like he spent many years outdoors in a hot desert climate.
And he was never able to act his way out of a wet paper bag, but that's a different complaint for a different topic.
Johnny Whitaker. Cute kid, but what happened?
The Ghost of Mr. French
Actually R25 they are cute and they don't have nappy heads. I'm not a racist either. I'm sure their parents think they are lovely and there are ugly little white babies too.
Yeah, Clint Howard OWNS this thread. Not only is he a fug adult, he's also a hard core Rethug. He hates gays too. So, he's doubly ugly.
Johnny Whitaker was NOT a cute kid. A lot of gingers aren't really cute, anyway.
R30 Was too! I was way cute. Hey, I looked better than that Bonaduce douche.
David Cassidy was hot as a teen and in his early, early 20s, but boy, he got fug.
