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.

Clint Howard. Adorable, cuddly tyke grew into trollish sex-offender look alike.

I've seen ugly kids who have grown up stunningly gorgeous too. It's weird but, yes, I've noticed the really beautiful kids turn out very ordinary and vice versa.

This thread has Prince Williams name all over it.

Most 80 year olds are downright boner-killing, OP! You are so insightful.

I think Richard Blanco should write an inspirational poem about OP.

Corey Haim, Gary Coleman, Lindsay Lohan. However, Clint Howard owns this thread.

R10 to be fair, Lindsay Lohan would probably still be good looking were it not for the drugs and drink.

Rick Santorum. Except he was really ugly in HS, too.

by Anonymousreply 1201/22/2013

I agree, r11.

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.

Rick Schroeder.

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

Macauley Culkin actually owns this thread.

by Anonymousreply 1901/24/2013

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.

Clint Howard? He was ALWAYS a fug.

by Anonymousreply 2201/24/2013

I don't think MC was that good looking as a child, though, R19.

by Anonymousreply 2301/24/2013

I didn't think MC was cute at all. Pale and sickly looking. As an adult, he just looks even more pale and sickly.

Johnny Whitaker. Cute kid, but what happened?

by Anonymousreply 2701/24/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 2801/24/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 2901/24/2013

Johnny Whitaker was NOT a cute kid. A lot of gingers aren't really cute, anyway.

David Cassidy was hot as a teen and in his early, early 20s, but boy, he got fug.

It's true. Look at IU korean singer. She was not as cute as you would expect as a baby. As an adult it's hard to think of any other woman that is cuter than her.

Fred Savage was a cute kid, then became hideous in high school.
