There seem to be some teen stars
that stand the test of time and go on to become famous as adults. Others either fade away gracefully to find other outlets for their time and creativity or eventually fade away from the spotlight not quite as gracefully. At the moment, we seem to have a bumper crop of teens with talent and poise. These individuals are impressive with how well they’ve carried themselves in stardom to date and hopefully they will stay sober, honest and go on to have worthwhile careers as adults as well.
got her name from her nickname growing up. The young media sensation was called “Smiley” by her father and the name stuck. It was eventually shortened and today you’d hardly know that she wasn’t born with the name. Miley might be a wee bit overexposed, but she seems to have some real talent and thus far has handled herself, including any scandals to date, with grace and professionalism.
Zac’s been around since High School Musical
. He’s certainly attractive, even if his singing skills are a bit less than stellar. Fortunately, he can act well enough to keep up entertained through three High School Musicals
to date. He’s even moved into movies for the big screen (not counting HSM3) and has done a pretty decent job. It’s nice that he stays true to his roots with Disney and even nicer that he’s kept a pretty level head on his despite his fame and fortune.
The Jonas Brothers
A band of brothers who are actually nice guys - wow. Thus far there aren’t any rumors of the brothers running amuck and starring in any homemade internet films or the like. Nobody’s needed rehab and nobody has punched the paparazzi. They seem to get along well with each other and with everyone around them. Good looking guys, decent music, funny show. Thumbs up.
Personally, I love everything about Julia Roberts and I’m a growing fan of her niece, Emma. Emma was Nancy Drew
and has done some work in other shows as well. She’s got a great smile, loads of talent and seems to be the kind of girl everyone just naturally gets along with.
The star, or at least one of the stars, of Drake and Josh
, Drake is a solid, down-to-earth kind of kind. He hangs out with other teen stars like Corbin Bleu and of course, his best friend Josh. His show is funny and his break out into the movies hasn’t been terrible. He’s considered a pin-up by many girls so his face is everywhere, and it’s not a terrible hardship to look at him.
Love her in Heroes
. Loved her in the big movies like Remember the Titans
and Ice Princess
. Hayden is beautiful, fun and has already spent decades being successful in Hollywood. Technically not a teen, she’s still young enough to inspire us to greatness.
