Gotta respect Mara Wilson for getting out of acting when she lost her passion. She's a solid writer now.

 LAUGH OUT LOUD. WHERE ARE THE BLACK CHILD STARS OR ANY NON WHITE CHILD STARS? For correction Macaulay Culkin part, it's not MJ sex scandal it's child sex allegation scandal and second of all he's mainly remembered for his Home Alone movie. You Mojo are trying make to people believe that MJ was actually molester without evidence like other major press and media outlets SHAME ON YOU.

michael jackson admitted to sleeping with kids, he is one of the few who can get away with that, if any other man said that they would be in prison.

Most of these young stars were forgotten by choice. They didn't want to stay in show business, so they got out of it after doing a few movies or one big movie. Quite a few of them were very intelligent and saw that being in movies and being famous wasn't all it was cracked up to be. They wanted something more meaningful out of life.

also some of them (like the 2 Corey's) were driven into the world of drugs and alcohol after being molested as child stars.
Corey Haim did not die of a drug overdose but of pneumonia.  Yes he had a huge drug problem most of his adult life but they did not contribute to his death.  Get your facts straight and quit promoting a urban myth.  http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20366327,00.html

 yup, saw it in a scene in The Godfather, my parents were entertainers, they knew that part of the buisness  very well. Who knows 4 sure about the 2 Cory's life in  regard to being molested but I don't doubt it happened
+Johnny Cade Feldmans publicist went to prison for molesting one of his clients a dozen years after they parted ways.  It is one of the deepest worst kept secrets of Hollywood,  Hollywood is full of Pedophiles that have easy access to eager boys and girls who will do anything to be famous.  Even their parents turn a blind eye to this.
