10 Child Stars Who Were Too Young For Their Roles

12788 ratings | 1304213 views
Child actors who played mature roles in movies. Subscribe: https://goo.gl/Hnoaw3 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- There are strict laws in place to protect child actors in the entertainment industry. But that hasn’t stopped producers and directors from exploiting children in horror films and inappropriately suggestive movies. We’ll be showing you some of the films where actresses were way too young for the scenes they were performing, from Brooke Shields in “Pretty Baby” to Dominique Swain in “Lolita.” You’ll be shocked to see these controversial films that were made for adults, but used young girls in the provocative roles. This is: 10 Child Stars Who Were Too Young For Their Roles. When “The Exorcist” was released in 1973, moviegoers were creeped out by the scenes that involved child actress Linda Blair. Blair played the role of a girl who was possessed by vicious entities, and some believed the subject matter was too mature for an actress as young as she was. Another horror film that was greeted with controversy was “Let the Right One” starring Lina Leandersson. You’ll have to watch our video to find out why people were up in arms about Leandersson’s role in this movie. Before appearing in “Black Swan,” Natalie Portman was playing the role of a child assassin in “Léon: The Professional.” People were extremely upset by her character’s relationship with a much older man in the film. If you want to hear more about this cringeworthy movie, make sure to tune in! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheTalko Twitter: https://twitter.com/thetalko Instagram: https://instagram.com/the_talko ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.thetalko.com/

SJWs have made the world and online more censored and self censored than when I grew up. I was told that the internet was free... But it wasn't government that censored it... It was us.

That Michael Jackson clip at 2:11 was hilarious, he would have been watching a movie with young boys instead of young girls though.

Not everything has to be ''kid friendly''. It's better to show children ''darker movies'' because some of the things in these films actually happen in real life, if you don't show your child these things, they will be vulnerable as an adult. Kids shouldn't be watching so much TV anyway, the should be playing outside. But as someone who was allowed to watch films like Orphan as a small child, I can say that it has not damaged me in any way.

I though Hit Girl's outfit was perfectly acceptable for a child superhero. Frankly, it's when adults wear the costume it becomes creepy.

Reading through the comments, it seems that NOBODY agrees with the premise of this presentation, and neither do I. Not one of the actors felt, as an adult, that their rôle was inappropriate; not one had their career damaged. In every case the part SHOULD have been played by an actor of that age, or even younger — let's not forget that on the book Lolita was 12. In the movies listed which I have seen, all the actors gave a superb performance, particularly Jean Reno and Jeremy Irons, who handled their rôles with sensitivity. The kind of complaint implicit in this presentation is typical of the prissy puritanism and outrage-fetishism prevalent in US society.

Lolita is a piece of Classic Literature. If you're not going to be faithful the ages of the Characters ... What's the point?

The only people who disliked those provocative movies were probably bitter old bible thumpers. Those girls were on their way to the top and super stars after those movies

Regardless of this content, your presentation - the presentation that is tolerated, is NOT right and you know it. Do NOT use those pictures for your subject matter. I don't care if profit is all that matters to you, you are preying on your own species and that makes you the worst of the worst. Although this is horrible, I wish upon you a conscience. All of this, while we all know what's been happening for centuries in the Catholic Church. Make sense of that.

As a teenager myself, I think if was an actress, I would like to represent how it feels to be a teen and what we go through. Why should we hide the fact the kids and teenagers also go through bad moments and have opinions? This has to be snown. And it has to be shown by those who are going through it. Not by elders.

I agree with this video but also what about highschool movie blatantly popularising teenage sex? Is it true that most teens in America are quite promiscuous for their age?? PS I know they use older characters to it. But the content is for teens.

Wonder why The Color Purple didn't make the list. Desreta Jackson was only 10 and played "Young Celie" - a pregnant, abused child who had two children by her stepfather. She got sold to a widower to be the new "mammy" of his family, only to be abused more and have her sister sent away.

Just because it has got kids in it, it does not make it a kids movie. The Exorcist is an 18 for gods sake. Why would anyone let their kids watch it.

I assure you, the filming and acting out of a movie/scenes are A LOT less intense than they appear, barring action and demanding scenes. Editing is a very powerful tool!!
DinoThePenguKing (2 months ago)
At the end of the day, a movie set is very different to the overall outcome of the play and it's not like they sat there and watched someone possessed (or whatever the film was about). Like on set it'll be a lot more fun and if the parents and the kids are okay with it then it's not really that bad My parents would let me swear every word if it was a film or show or whatever was required (I mean maybe not a sex scene because I wouldn't do that - that's also probably illegal). At the end of the day they're acting and it's just a roll

In the Exorcist, she said sexual foul language, and she also wasn’t religious, her mom resorted to the priests for help. So get your facts straight.

I have seen most of those movies - including the Present day remake of a couple of them - 1 Comment i would make to the author of this video - I would suggest you watch the movies before incorrectly bagging them EG - Let the right one in; If you follow the story you will find that the older man in the movie (her apparent guardian in the early part of the movie) was someone she met when he was just a teen himself - and at no point in the movie was there any reference that the possibility that he was anything more than a guardian to the young actress as he grew old and she did not - Likewise the young male that was part of the story. Yes they shared a bed on one occasion, but again this was portrayed in the movie as an innocent sleepover type event, it is only your sick mind and witch hunt mentality that made it more. - The Exorcist The film was made in small chunks and pieced together after - It was designed to shock (as was Lolita) but the physical portions of the movie, you claim was inappropriate did not show the girls face, and was in fact played by a double. Information that i heard was that Linda (like Chloe grace) was not permitted to see the completed movie at the time of its filming and release. A couple of the movies you have claimed are inappropriate on (i am guessing) the basis that the young actresses appear near naked in the film. It was a requirement of the time, that in such an event where nudity was called for, that the person (adult or child) was required to wear a body stocking - and indeed in one scene in the Pretty baby movie, it is clearly visible. Many movies are made to shock - Many movies made to show a period of time - We look at movies now and say Oh Crap - and try to put our morals on to the time - Things change over time - Some things get better some get worse - the biggest problem as i see it in today's society is the prevalent witch hunt mentality and public trials without all the facts. You want to produce this sort of thing that is fine, but a lie of omission is still a lie and will still cause a mistirection - Get fact straight before blogging about it in the future..

The movies are about teenagers and children they HAVE to have teenagers and children playing the roles. Also Isabelle LOVED playing the role so, Shut up.
Henrietta147 (2 months ago)
Come on. I'm pretty sure no one forced these actors to star in any of these movies. Sure their parents may wanted them to but Natalie Portman begged her parents. Children, especially teenages are their own person. They have their own free will. And there are many many children out there who actually had to live through worse and and not just pretend and no one gets an eye. So please stop being such a hypocrite

When these kids were cast in these movies they understood it was fake and had their parents with them most of the time things can’t always be “kid friendly” I understand where people are coming from but shouldn’t award these young actors for being amazing in these more adult movies then saying they shouldn’t be in them at all

It’s called acting. The kids aren’t engaged in the acts they portray. They don’t actually kill anyone, or have sex, and curse words are just words.
Nolan LaValley (3 months ago)
I think people need t learn how to grow up. The parents obviously didn't have an issue with it, and the actresses mentioned here say they don't feel shame or like they were exploited, so what's the problem? I'm just fifteen, but I don't see anything inappropriate about child actors playing fictional kid characters.
Lol, you're so sensitive, guess you better sue IT

Wow people getting getting so triggered that there was a show with a child "betrothed" to an older man but they for getting too things. 1)IT'S A DAMN SHOW IT'S NOT LIKE THEY'RE ACTUALLY TOGETHER! 2)IT TAKES PLACE IN A TIME PERIOD WHERE THAT IT WAS A NORMAL THING TO SEE A CHILD AND OLDER MEN TOGETHER!
Has anyone know about Lina Leandersson.

Welcome to the 21st century people. Where Hollywood glorifies Teenagers having sex on screen and it’s ok🙄🙄. Or a 46 year old man can have sex with a 15 year old girl and it’s ok because of puberty and hormones 🙄🙄🙄Humanity finds new ways to disgust me and ruins innocence.

This almost reminds me of a Philippine actress named Julia Montes. She was also very young when she portrays mature roles in her hit drama series. Julia can play married women/mother roles successfully at such a young age, which showcases her talent/acting skills and proves her versatility as an actress as well as made her popular.
tells you to cover your ears like there aren't words on the screen lmfao
hop off orphan mombies and daddicts, that's the ish right there!

I have no idea that there are some of child stars who have played mature roles in controversial films and becomes household names back then. The only child star i've ever seen had doing such a challenging role here in YouTube before was only Isabelle Fuhrman in the mystery-thriller Orphan.

I can't figure out if it's mostly the rampant sexism criticizing young women, only women, for their amazing work, or the religious radicalism trying to completely deny female sexuality and gender strength, that annoys me most here. I've seen all these movies. Maybe that's partly why I don't hate women!

I think it's funny fans say it's way too violent when parents deliberately take their young children to see these movies and such others like marvel, lord of the rings, Harry Potter. 5 and 6 year olds should see these things or even R rated yet parents still being there young children. So if they can see it then 11 and 12 year olds can act in it.

Here's the thing while a lot of things are 'implied' in movies, they don't happen on screen. Especially sex. Also children of age 12 and 13 aren't sweet and innocent (not talking about sex) I have a twelve-year-old brother and trust me he knows about guns and violence and sex and child brides. Though the one that I kinds felt iffy about was the eleven-year-old seducing an older man. Makes me kinda feel icky.

People like this always say "you're too young to do this or say that" and if an actor is 12 or 13 you say "you shouldn't be doing things like that" and pretending like hormones don't exist. And then of course they're hit with the ever so classic "you need to start acting your age, grow up" but of course once they do start acting more grown up and doing "grown up things" you prosecute them for doing so. Life gets dark and movies and shows try to incorporate and show these dark things to give more education on the "taboo" matter. Because shit does happen. But saying the cliche "you're too young to do this" is only making kids want to do stuff more. Which leads us right back to the same stupid argument
