Favorite Young Perfomance in a Movie

The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Asa Butterfield - Hugo
22Chloƫ Grace Moretz - Kick-AssChloƫ Grace Moretz is an American actress and model. She began her acting career in 2004 at the age of seven, and her first award nomination came the following year for The Amityville Horror.
23Jason Schwartzman - Rushmore
24Judy Garland - The Wizard of Oz

How is this not number one? This is easily the most iconic eligible performance. The "Over The Rainbow" performance should be enough on its own to make the top spot.

25Abigail Breslin - Little Miss Sunshine
26Tatum O'Neal - The Bad News Bears
27Jennifer Love Hewitt - I Know What You Did Last Summer
28Linda Blair - The Exorcist

She was very frightening in The Exorcist. She almost made it seem as though she was the devil. And HELLO, she was nominated for an oscar for this role! - nallimcamybloc

29Kerri Green - Lucas

Kerri Green's performance in Lucas is amazing. It's unfortunately overlooked because most people only acknowledge Corey Haim's performance. I'm surprised she never became a bigger star than she did because she can clearly act.

30Jodie Foster - The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane
31Jamie Lee Curtis - Halloween
32Anne Hathaway - The Princess DiariesAnne Jacqueline Hathaway is an American actress and singer. Born in Brooklyn, New York and brought up in Millburn, New Jersey, Hathaway was inspired to act by her mother and as a high school student, was nominated for the Paper Mill Playhouse Rising Star Award for Best Performance by a High School Actress ...read more.

I love Anne Hathaway because she is SO GOOD at acting! Oh, by the way, Anne, I love your haircut. It's looks so cute! - taylorswift24878

33Mia Wasikowska - Defiance

This Australian starlet is definitely on the rise for the last few years now. To many people it started with Tim Burton's Alice, but what really kicked off her Hollywood career was this Daniel Craig fronted war film set in occupied Poland. - jezza0

34Suraj Sharma - Life of Pi

He has got an Awe.. HE LIVED AS PI! Not everyone proves to be an actor, well a so good actor in their debut performance. This movie changed his life, I guess. Expecting many more good movies from him. Salutes for SURAJ

35Jodie Foster - Taxi Driver
36Lindsay Lohan - The Parent TrapLindsay Dee Lohan is an American actress. She is also a model, singer, songwriter, director, and producer.
37Ricky Schroder - The Champ
