Child actresses from '80s TV that became hot adults

Keshia Knight PulliamDid you ever think when you were watching a pre-teen Keshia Knight Pulliam play a no-longer-cute Rudy on the last years of The Cosby Show that she was going to grow up to become a slamming hottie? Neither did I. But if you've seen her act or host one of those child star clip shows recently, you know that's exactly what happened. She's one of the more surprising entries on this list of ten child actresses from 1980s TV shows that became hot adults, courtesy of our new best friends at Wikia.com.

Most of the names (and their lovely accompanying pictures) on this list aren't shockers: we all know about the hotness of Alyssa Milano, Tiffani Thiessen, Soleil Moon Frey, and Danica McKellar. But who knew that Josie Davis, who played the nerdy Sarah on Charles in Charge, would grow up to become so hot (Nicole Eggert, who played her sister Jamie, is also on the list)? Candace Cameron had potential during those last years of Full House, but seeing the picture of her on this list, I can understand how she bagged a hockey player. And what of Cameron's TV sister, Jodie Sweetin? She's on the list, too, but any viewer of Fuse's Pants-Off Dance-Off knows how well she turned out, and that's despite a period of heavy meth addiction.

First of all you have to remember these are photos made by professionals. That said I stopped thinking Alyssa Milano was hot until I saw a topless photo of her on one of the german TV-Guides (called "TV Spielfilm") about ten years ago. Her breasts then were just totally ugly.

I think a lot of the women you see each day, maybe even your next door neighbour can look just as nice when shot the same way. So this doesn't really surprise me, in fact what I'd like to know is whether there are child actors out there who grew up to be butt-ugl :-)

bgdc - So agreed on Miss Chabert. If there's a list of 90s actresses, she's in the top two. It's not even a question.

Josie Davis has done nude scenes too...egad she's put together.

Lacey Chabert may not count as 80s but holy crap was nature kind to her in adulthood.

Am I the only one that thinks that seeing Rudy like that is just very very wrong?
