5 Hollywood Child Actors Who Are Not Famous Anymore

Edward Furlong

Edward played the young savior of humanity in the 2001 cult movie “Terminator 2: Judgment Day”. He had a few decent roles in other movies as well (“American History X”, “American Heart”).

However, just like many other young actors, Edward got carried away with fame. He picked up a lot of bad habits such as drunk driving. That is why Furlong did not get a role in “Terminator 3” — the insurance company did not want to have any business with him. Nowadays, the actor continues to star in low-budget films. He had a short appearance in the latest “Terminator” movie but it did not help his career.

Macaulay Culkin

Macaulay starred in “Home Alone” movies, for which he was nominated for a “Golden Globe” award. He was paid enormous amounts for playing in films such as “The Good Son”, “Richie Rich”, and “The Pagemaster”. However, Macaulay’s father has ruined the career of the young actor. He demanded multimillion-dollar salaries for his son so Hollywood studios did not want to work with the boy to avoid huge costs. Eventually, Macaulay’s parents got divorced and he developed addictions to alcohol and drugs.

Haley Joel Osment

Haley Joel Osment has been acting since a young age. The boy started out as a television actor but soon became a popular Hollywood child star. Haley starred in such movies as “Forrest Gump”, “The Sixth Sense”, “Pay It Forward”, and “A.I. Artificial Intelligence”. However, he became addicted to alcohol and his acting career went into decline. Osment has not gotten major roles ever since.

Daryl Sabara

Considering the popularity of the “Spy Kids” franchise, it seemed that Daryl Sabara is destined to become a popular actor. However, he never got any big roles after the spy film series ended. The actor has appeared in films such as “Halloween” (2007), “Machete”, “John Carter” and numerous TV series (“Weeds”, “Grimm”) but he does not get big roles anymore.
