Probably one of the most difficult and underestimated obstacles for a young star is transitioning from a child or young celebrity into a legitimate Hollywood heavyweight. For some, like Raven-Symone and Michael Jackson, they became much bigger stars than even when they were kids, although Mike ultimately paid the price with his sanity and then his life. Others, such as Jaleel White (above), struggle to shed a wildly popular but goofy image of their younger incarnations like Steve Urkel, and may encounter emotional problems associated with it.

Below, rolling out takes a look at some of the adolescent and tween stars of yesteryear and see how they look today.
