What’s particularly interesting about movies is watching characters grow up and transforming into adults. How does this happen? Well, directors usually search for actors who look similar to the actors who play the child, and cast them for playing the grown-up role. Whenever this happens in a movie, it’s truly amazing how they perfectly fit for the role in terms of both physical appearance as well as talent. Here is a collection of actors who played some of the most attractive characters in movies and what they look like today in real life. Be careful, you might be shocked to see the child and grown-up character compared to the real grown-up actors.
