Whatever happened to Aileen Quinn of Annie?

GavinTheAlmighty: I wonder how many editions per year of Cosmopolitan magazine feature some variant on "SEX TIPS/TRICKS/MOVES" on the cover.


All of them. Women's magazines operate on only one of two principles.

There is the "Women must be the homemaker-super-mom so here's a bunch of decorating ideas and recipes that you must follow or you are a failure." The other, the one that Cosmo operates on, is the "You are fat and boring in bed" theme.

That one turned out badly, dying of a drug overdose.

List is FAIL without Kim Richards, whose complete downward spiral into drugs and alchohol are currently being showcased on Real Wives of Beverly Hills.

Also, I think McCauley Culkin's performances in Saved and Party Monster, and the fact that he was in a steady relationship with MIla Kunis for seven years during the time he made said movies, elevates him out of the "loser child star category." He can be very funny about having an 11-year-old's face on a 30-year-old head.

Despite the author desperately trying to frame these former child actors' lives in a negative light, most of his examples...turned out fairly well.

"(Former child star) fell out of the limelight after (old movie). (Former child star) went on to graduate college and now has a seemingly successful, non acting job."

That...sounds pretty ok.

No, a beluga is a woodwind instrument, you must be thinking of bulimia


No, bulimia is the little shrimp that they sell as Sea Monkeys. You're thinking of Balki Bartokomous

The Aileen Quinn was killed by Ripley in Aileens.

other than McCauley Culkin having a Marilynn Manson sort of face, the rest seem to look OK.

Nice herp sore on his lip too.

You realize he didn't tap it and probably won't make it to 30.
Also he's really the only sad one on the list.

FTFA: PETER OSTRUM (WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY) Aged 13 - and looking remarkably like a young Jon Bon Jovi - Peter Ostrum sprang to fame as Charlie Bucket in the first Willy Wonka film. And then? Nothing. Rejecting a three-film contract, Ostrum returned to Cleveland, grew up as a normal teenager, attended college and became a well-adjusted adult and a practicing veterinarian. Although maybe someone needs to have a word about that 'tache. Movember was two months ago.

I remember reading about this guy several years ago. Good for him.

It seems to be an almost universal rule that cute kids grow up weird looking, and weird looking kids grow up handsome/pretty. Alyssa Milano being a notable exception.

Mara Wilson didn't quit acting because 'Thomas the Tank Engine' flopped. She quit because her mother died of cancer. She was like 10 at the time. Hell, if I was 10 and lost my mommy, I'd pretty much stop functioning for a long while. Glad she studied acting, though. Hope she comes back on the scene in something cool.

The way I see it, most if not all, the folks in the article are BETTER now than if they had continued through the Hollywood system grinder. Face it, it is a cesspool where you either become a huge star or settle into a stable character actor gig, where open slots are limited and your freshness date is always on the verge of expiration.

The 1994 Miracle on 34th Street made $17 million and is referred to as a "Blockbuster" in the article.
"Thomas and the Magic Railroad" did $15 million and is a "flop" in the same paragraph.

I do not understand.
