child stars

Last night, I came across Kindergarten Cop on TV and decided to let it play in the background. I remembered a lot of the lines and characters, even making the connection that the twin girls with the side-pony that say “Our mom says our dad’s a real sex machine’ is the girl from Napolean Dynamite. Then I wondered about the shortest and funniest of the bunch… Joseph who states, “Boys have a penis, girls have a vagina” and “my dad’s a gynaecologist and he looks at vaginas all day long. His name is Miko Hughes.

Before Kindergarten Cop, his first big role was actually in Pet Cemetary. He had several other noteable roles after that, but one big one was where he played Simon Lynch, an autistic boy in Mercury Rising starring alongside Bruce Willis.

After a bit of research, I’ve learned that Hughes is still an actor today. I was most curious about what he looked like, now at the age of 26-years old. Check out some recent photos below.

You probably have heard about former ‘Growing Pains’ star Kirk Cameron and how he said that gays were “detrimental and destructive to society” in a recent interview on Piers Morgan Tonight. Appalling! Well, thankfully not all former child stars are like him.

A new campaign has begun called CCOKC (pronounced “cock“) that stands for “Child Celebrities Opposing Kirk Cameron“. These famous kids of the ’80s and ’90s want you to know that gays rule and Kirk Cameron drools. The stars included: Maureen Flannigan (Out Of This World), Kenn Michael (The Parent Hood), Brice Beckham (Mr. Belvedere), Christine Lakin (Step By Step), Jeremy Licht (Step By Step), Josie Davis (Charles In Charge).

The ending is the best when they say, “I’m a CCOKC… And Kirk? You’re just a dick.” Enjoy the video below.

What Ever Happened To “Matilda”?

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

Last night, I randomly came across a picture of the kid who, well ate all the chocolate cake in the movie ‘Matilda,’ starring Danny DeVito, Rhea Perlman, and of course Mara Wilson as the adorable lisping lead, Matilda Wormwood. From what I saw in his picture, the chocolate cake eating boy was all grown up now and definitely got into shape (i’ve included a picture below), but I was suddenly even more curious about Mara Wilson.

In the ’90s, Mara Wilson starred in Matilda, Mrs. Doubtfire, and Miracle On 34th Street among other things, but now, where is this 24 year old woman?

When she grew out of her “nauseatingly cute” and “terribly precocious” child phase, she was no longer booking the leading roles and stepped away from her child stardom. She then focused on comedy and improv while finishing school. She then went to New York University and spent four years trying to avoid awkward eye contact (as she puts it) with the other, much more famous former child stars attending the school. Want to see what she looks like now?

You knew him best as the adorable kid from ‘Stuart Little‘ and ‘Jerry Maguire‘, but Jonathan Lipnicki is all grown up now. The 21-year old Jewish hottie recently did a fitness/athletics photo shoot where he was shirtless, lifting weights, wrestling, and just looking hot. With a body and face like his, he’ll be moving on from the adorable co-star to Hollywood leading man in no time. After not acting in any film or TV since 2005, Lipnicki has two films in the works: ‘For The Love Of Money,’ in post production and ‘Tag,’ which is currently still being filmed.

I’m not even sure if you’re ready for the photos you’re about to see. Lipnicki is absolutely ripped and the photos of him doing mixed martial arts are super homoerotic (to me anyway). Some of the pictures show Lipnicki pinning a guy down with his crotch in the guy’s face, while he makes Tyra proud by finding his light and staring intently into the camera lens. Enjoy the photos and let your imagination run wild.

Jonathan Taylor Thomas Turns 30

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

Back in the 90s, Home Improvement was one of the most popular TV sitcoms on television. It was also where we first saw the cute Jonathan Taylor Thomas and where he became a teen heartthrob. He was always on the cover of Teen Beat magazine and every girl (and some boys) had a crush on him. The blue eyes, the sexy voice (which was also the voice of Simba on The Lion King), the hair… He was a cutie patootie, as Rosie O’ Donnell would put it.

Today, Jonathan Taylor Thomas turns 30! I would feel old except I’m the same age as him and as long as we grow up together, than that’s fine – haha. Back in the day, there were rumors that he was gay, but in an interview with The Advocate in 2000, he denied that he was. Now, he seems to be hidden from the public eye, having last been seen on Veronica Mars in 2005. Perhaps living a secret life with a boy in a cute little cottage? Haha, we can only fantasize.

Anyway, check out the photos below of the cast reunion from a few days ago. They’ve all grown up!!

Haley Joel Osment Is Back

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Movies, Tyrell

Remember that kid who hid under tables and told Bruce Willis he saw dead people? Well, Haley Joel Osment is all grown up (23 years old actually) and he’s about to make a comeback in the film industry. According to CNN, Haley has signed on to star in Wake The Dead based on the Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” with cues from the graphic novel series by Steven Niles. Haley will play the character of Victor Franklin, a college student morbidly experimenting with the limits of human death. This sound highly intriguing yet mildly disturbing.

Taking it back, the last time I remember seeing H.J.O. was in one of my favorite sci-fi flicks, Artificial Intelligence. A few years later, a teenage Osment starred in Secondhand Lions. So where has he been since then? You may recall that the 18 year old had some trouble with the law back 2006 when Osment was a car accident and flipped his car. The actor ended up injuring his shoulder and breaking a rib. The officers gave him a breathalyzer test and he blew twice the legal limit… for a 21 year old. Things looked worse when they also found he was in possession of marijuana.
