Child actors who played mature roles in movies.
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!

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.
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.
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.
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
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..
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
can't believe how old they are and they're just babies only they should play in movies that are suited for younger viewers or TV shows this is way too much for little kids to play in movies like this or TV shows
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
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.
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!
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.
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 really hate how actors get more attention on inappropriate roles then childrwn being forced to marry pedophiles like its not only a problem on the streets but hollywood has had so many unnoticed caases pedophilia
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
8:40 omg I can see her freaking cheeks WTF, they should have made her wear a better face mask, she is much too young to be showing THAT MUCH SKIN! Honestly, they have gone too far this is why I only watch good Christian films you won't see any of these vile acts of Hollywood in those films.
Anunciado durante a Gamescom 2017, uma das maiores feiras de videogame do mundo, o remake de Secret of Mana é, desde o início, um projeto pensado para agradar aos fãs de longa data e atrair jogadores novatos com um gameplay mais acessível.
Não se engane: a versão 2018 de Secret of Mana está mais para uma recriação do que uma mera remasterização com pequeno ajustes gráficos. O que temos aqui é um jogo completamente atualizado, com personagens redesenhados que ganharam nova vida graças à estética cartunesca.
Se, por um lado, as mudanças visuais foram projetadas para atrair novatos, por outro, algumas pessoas podem torcer o nariz pela simplicidade da nova abordagem - especialmente no que diz respeito aos cenários e criaturas do mundo.
Os cenários coloridos, por exemplo, ainda que estejam bem representados, trazem pouca variedade e deixam game com cara de “jogo de celular”. Isso fica mais evidente pela estrutura do game, já que muitas áreas estão completamente vazias e monótonas. Nesse quesito, Secret of Mana não tem vantagem em ter o fator nostalgia a seu favor.
O remake utiliza a clássica perspectiva de visão aérea, com a câmera posicionada acima dos personagens. É possível arrastar as bordas da tela manualmente para ter uma visão mais ampla do ambiente, o que é bastante útil para momentos de exploração.
O brilho da era noventista, mas com ressalvas.
Antes de tudo, é importante ressaltar que não há legendas em português, então o melhor a fazer é jogar com textos em inglês. A história continua sendo o ponto mais alto de Secret of Mana e, novamente, coloca o jogador no controle de três adoráveis personagens: Randi, Primm e Popoi - é possível jogar em modo cooperativo local para até três usuários.
O objetivo do grupo é lutar contra um império traidor ao mesmo tempo em que tenta recuperar o poder da Mana para restaurar a paz. O grande problema é que, embora os gráficos estejam atualizados, as animações ficaram presas ao passado. Em vez de despertar o sentimento de nostalgia, a falta de capricho passa a impressão de que o remake foi feito às pressas.
A jogabilidade à la Zelda foi aprimorada e permite desferir ataques de qualquer ângulo. Os inimigos também demonstram mais inteligência, uma vez que agora eles têm a opção de atacar a partir de qualquer ponto do cenário.
Ainda que a movimentação esteja mais fluida, parece haver algum problema técnico relacionado ao impacto dos golpes. Isso porque há momentos em que o personagem simplesmente não acerta o ataque, mesmo posicionado a uma distância razoável do oponente.
Além disso, a interface dos menus ficou bem aquém do esperado, com abas confusas e muito mal posicionadas. Há, no entanto, uma opção de mapear os itens essenciais nos botões do joystick ou teclado, o que facilita muito a organização na hora de combates mais exigentes.
O remake de Secret of Mana mantém a essência da pérola dos RPGs de ação dos anos 90, mas comete muitos deslizes ao tentar mexer em time que está ganhando. Menus engessados, sistema de combate com problemas técnicos e animações presas ao passado impedem o relançamento de ser a experiência definitiva, apesar de que possa valer para quem nunca experimentou o jogo original.
