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!

Nonsense. Lipstick is one of the greatest female vigilante movies ever, and vigilante movies were all the rage during that era. The movie was also an indictment of the exploitation of the modeling world and the entertainment industry in general, as well as the failure of the courts to handle rape cases. So in older sister Margaux too it into her own hands to get well-deserved justice.
Leon the professional still is the best classic cult movie. Mathilda's character is so well depicted as well as the bond between her and Leon. A lovely relationship without the question of immorality lurking.
This video is pretty stupid. Not what I was expecting at all hahah.. I thought it was like. Kids too young for the roles i.e. They didn't do a good job or something and it would have been better for the film/story/whatever if the actor had been a teeny bit older. This "oh that's inappropriate for children" is insulting to the innumerable children that have had to live through some of these stories for real over the centuries (apart from the horror/paranormal stuff obviously as IT ISN'T REAL). THEY ARE ACTORS. THEY AREN'T STUPID. They know it isn't real and it clearly isn't traumatising for them....... What this video should have been titled is "movies/shows that have kid actors that some ridiculous adults find offensive because of their insane bubble life views".
Lolita may not be so controversial anymore . It has been made 3 times now, Elle Fanning in the last role. It seems it has been well received and makes pretty good Bank. Are those watching it controversial? Hmmm
Chloe also did Let Me In, which was the same film of Let the Right One In . Moretz's film was the American version. And the "older" male helping her was once her boyfriend, but grew old because he wasn't a vampire. She was 12 and never aged as vampires are known to do. All these young girls are old enough to "act" these rolls. They know what they are doing. Wise beyond their years. They understand the process of the film industry. They definitely understand the paycheck they receive.
I think you're missing the point with a lot of those, the films were supposed to be creeping and disturbing. If you're watching a film like 'Pretty Baby' or 'Lolita' and aren't made uncomfortable then there's a problem. You should be disturbed, you should feel creeped out. If you do then great, that is the reaction the film should create.
Personally I love the film 'Leon', the juxtaposition of Leon and Mathilde is brilliant. On the one hand you have an older man who works as a professional killer but he is very kind and caring, eventually giving his life to protect a young girl and avenge her family (I do think he loved her but not in a sexual inapproriate way, more like a father or much older brother, and very intenely). On the other hand you have a young girl who undoubtedly loves Leon, as a father or flawed hero, but is also cold and steely at times. Beautifully disturbing and causes deep questioning of your assumptions.
I've seen Hollywood become real evil to plenty of people who are not the usual white guy, but little girls are always the number one victims when it comes to Hollywood. Some are mentally abused, even worse, physically abused and eventually, some of them would actually commit suicide for real once they're the white guys' victims. White guys have no respect for anyone but themselves because they always think that they're the only type of special people on Earth and no one else.
All of these movies should not have been made at all. Especially The Exorcist. Special thanks to a lot of scenes where the little girl sounds like a man, there are way too many Exorcist wannabes in movies, TV Shows, commercials and even in children's programs thinking that little girls having voices like full grown men will get a lot of laughs. It doesn't. It makes the viewers wanna reach the remote control and either change the channel or just simply turn the TV off.
To me children should not be in show business until they turn 21. Don't even think for one minute that little girls will be safe around Disney because he is absolutely no where near of what most people still thinks that he is. His messages to little girls was secretly to never ever become independent. Be helpless damsels in distress by wearing slutty princess gowns and wait for full grown men to come to your rescue when it's actually for you to be his sex slave and a victim as well like Snow White for instance. And I always thought that Snow White and the rest of those princesses were full grown women.
Here's what I don't get: 1. People these days don't ( and aren't even legally allowed to ) discipline their kids at all, let them do anything their heart desires, and even encourage them sometimes into some of this behavior. And yet, they scream and jump up and down when some of it is depicted in a movie. 2. Why would anyone let their children watch ANY of these films. 3. Nabakov's novel was a hell of a lot creepier than the film. 4 A lot of these pictures depicted periods in history when some of this stuff actually went on. Pretty Baby and Copper are good examples of things that went on quite frequently in the days when there were no child protection laws in existence. Kids as young as 5 and 6 worked 12 hour days in factories as recently as the early 1900's. Some of these films are only echoing the actual behavior of the times. Lastly, you can bet your life that Brooke Shields is telling the truth about not being exploited. Her mother was an absolute tiger as a protective stage mother.
Chloe Grace Moretz was also in a different version of “Let the Right One In” when she was quite young...just like the other child actor in the earlier version. Also, I could have lived the rest of my life without seeing Dakota Fanning in a movie with AshleyJudd as her mom...I think it was Ashley Judd, and Dakota was raped. It seriously affected me badly.
I think you're misunderstanding let the right one in, the vampire is perpetually 12 - she makes friends with a bullied young boy who assumes the older man is her father.
The end of the film explains the "circle" she is trapped in, the young boy will age while she doesnt. It's quite a tragic story.
I'm *extremely* surprised that you didn't put the 1996 movie 'Bastard out of Carolina' on this list. Because *that* is a film that makes you really cringe. I believe Jena Malone who played Ruth Anne "Bone" was about 12 years old then.
Making a film, acting, in front of a camera, or several cameras, with dozens of people all around and and doing the things required to get the effects is a JOB. It is a HARD JOB. It requires huge concentration on every sound and motion made. It is about as sexual as a trip to the hardware store. What we see on the screen is often never seen by the actors till long after the filming is over. There is no trauma. It is noteworthy as well that ONLY in the US do we find the neurotic, insecure, Puritanically brainwashed masses who become outraged over youthful sexual encounters of any kind, especially those with an adult. If any of the content that is purported to be outrageous here actually outrages you, go find a psychiatrist, in France preferably.
As a young actress, I gotta admit, people are way over reacting. you gotta do what ya gotta do. If these actors weren't in there, the movie wouldn't be the same. It's called acting. The one where she was acting out being taken advantage of could slightly prepare her for scary real life situations. Sometimes you gotta do things that will be considered controversial not just for your career but possibly to teach young viewers who come across these films what to avoid in life or to not do.
I actually think people should read the book before watching Lolita. The book much explains what goes on in the man's head and why he falls for the little girl. But, still, I don't know what the problem would be IF SHE WAS AT LEAST 18, I think it wouldn't matter if they were twenty years apart.
I think there’s a middle ground where we cast movies that are age authentic but make sure the young people involved have tons of emotional/ psychological support built into the process. Like, fiction or no, when Muriel Hemingway eventually saw the finished film it couldn’t have been easy to see her sister being violently raped. Maybe they already cover this, but it makes sense to offer ( or even require) a period of psychological evaluation afterward, like they do when a cop shoots someone.
That’s because of the development being largely dumbed down because of the dumb fucked up agendas of the same age who misuse abuse people and which they stop them from living their life due to a virgo factor they can talk you down in anything with their powers of bullyin tactics then possibly if ya stupid enough to use it against you also noted as hypocrisy
OK, people are losing their minds over actors playing characters that are not their sexuality, race or whatever, but to have young actors playing young characters is wrong??? As long as the actor and their parents agree to the roll with full knowledge of what the roll involves, I say go for it. Yeah, I don't think it's appropriate for say, horror porn or the like to use actual minors, but some rolls need to be played by those who fit the character. And, really, when the major objections are language and clothing choices, have they not seen what the average teenager is wearing and saying????
They obviously never watched ‘the boys of Saint Vincent’, where they basically molest the kids or ‘my little princess’, I haven’t seen this one, but it apparently does the same, which is really hypocritical given what those movies are about
Look, in reality, either the children don't understand or get told the plot of the film, and if they do, they would probably find a way to watch it. I'm more meaning towards the horror films, because In a lot of the cases, the actors and actresses are really quite protected from the end product and real plot of the film.
So, lets get this right..... No horror movies, no real life stories based on actual human nature, no foul language, no subject matter that makes us feel uncomfortable, only fluffy bunnies and rainbows, and close it with a censorship chaser. These hand gestures might make the triggered snowflakes at The Talko feel uncomfortable, but they are in the defense of art. So sit and spin Talko! 🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕
If child actors (who are professionals despite their young age) are emotionally mature enough to handle these kind of performances and their parents approve it, I see no reason why they shouldn’t be allowed to do their thing.
If they were able find adults to play teens in clueless...then...and lets be honest if you work in the or have any real experience rules for child actors or any actors are not always followed when the "perfect shot or scene " is needed...
Wow what a bunch of sanctimonious somewhat blind individuals. Chloe's revealing costume as Hit Girl was what looked like a jumpsuit made of leather, a bullet proof vest, a skirt over top the jump suit, gloves and a mask. the only thing revealed was her chin. The only movie that remotely belongs on this list is Pretty Baby.
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.
