>Jake LloydDeveloped paranoid schizophrenia and assaults his mother>Macaulay CulkinAddicted to drugs and slept with Michael Jackson>Edward FurlongAddicted to heroin and cocaine, assaulted his girlfriendsI also noticed that all former child actors grew to be like 5'7" or below. What went on behind the scenes that made them end up like this?
I remember reading that news article in 2012 about Culkin having 6 months left before he dies.
>>142451048schizophrenia is mostly genetic, I think.The only schizophrenic actors or actresses you're likely to hear about are those who became famous at a very young age and then developed it later in life.
>>142451048Giving kids that much money and power, being around pedophiles and druggies. Only hearing yes, and about how great and smart you are. Its going to fuck up most adults. But the kids never had a chance. You also need to ask yourself what kind of parent is wants their kids to be raised in that environment? Sure parents want their kids to grow up to be rich, but seeing your child as a cashcow, and putting them in the toxic environment that is Hollywood, I would assume their home life isn't stellar. And even if it was, once they become actors, and get used to everyone kissing their ass, how long until they resent mommy-manager? It ruins the power dynamic of parent and child. Macaulay Culkin and Edward Furlong didn't get to have childhoods and both were doing drugs before their teenage years. Jake Lloyd wasn't really an actor, but being the annoying kid from Star Wars ruined his life. He was teased constantly, and its not like Anakin was a cool character everyone liked.As for being short, most actors in general are short. But being a kid actor, you usually want someone who is going to be small and cute looking for the most amount of time. You don't want a growth spurt in the middle of production.

There's this place where you can go do that and don't step on anybody's toes and still try to reach for the brass ring.”The ones that don’t turn to hedonism turn out okay.
>>142451048Edward Furlong was probably raped and molestedby pedowood. He was dating a 26 yr old when he was 13 or 14.
>>142451048Because they were heavily abused by their parents and Hollywood producers and directors their entire childhood.
children are not meant to be exposed to that many people early in their life. they should be insulated to their families until they can defend themselves mentally.
>>142451048Didn’t Schwarzenegger molest him on set or am I thinking of someone else?
Lots of child actors turn out fine.
>>142451708he has been making this stupid face for like 30 years nowwhy is he so smug
They come out fine when they're actually protected from the whole drugs and craziness part of the business by their parents. Stage parents are the biggest thing that destroy child actors. You get ones who never had any trouble and grew up acting into adulthood.
