Fun Fact: Back when I was waitress, I served Tina and her friends. I knew she looked familiar, but I couldn't place her. She handed me her credit card when the bill came, and once I saw the name, the light bulb went off! Hah - what are the odds?

speaking of dramatic changes... Remember sweet little Taylor Momsen who played Cindy Lou Who? She definitely pulled a Miley Cyrus once she hit adolescence... From adorable child actor to legit rock star who cant seem to keep her shirt on, on stage...




Some favourite kids, all grown up! Add yours here!
Well coincidentally I saw Alicia Witt in a film the other day and she's gorgeous. When she was a kid she played Alia in Dune (1984). Daniela Amavia played the adult version of the character in the miniseries Children of Dune (2003) also beautiful. So no pressure for any sequels to the Denis Villeneuve incarnation .

I'm also fond of Sarah Polley because of her early appearance in The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (1988) but also the film Guinevere (1999), where she plays opposite Stephen Rea. They were a great pairing those two.



Have to say I'm a bit jealous of Freddie Highmore working with Vera Farmiga on Bates Motel. He looked really good as Norman Bates I must say great face for it.

We were watching The Grinch the other night and talking about what a natural she was infront of the camera. I wondered what happened to her.
