25 Yugvijay Tiwari

Yugvijay is now an international star he should be in top 10 according to me better than Miley whose doing wrecking ball...

He's attractive and stylish. The best thing is he was at like the last number in this list and in few weeks at 20Th number. Love it he said that he don't call fans he says friends. His friends list is huge man I'm little jealous also has.

He is the only Indian artist here so my vote goes to him and I like him also so big vote for Indian kid!

Yugvijay not Tiwari...

35 Edward Furlong Edward Furlong Edward Walter Furlong is an American actor and musician. A former teen idol, Furlong won Saturn and MTV Movie Awards for his breakthrough performance as John Connor in Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

Extremely talented, but a tragic story.. I wish that he would love himself as much as the world loves him and believe in himself like I believe in him.
Come on Eddie.. You can still be everything that you should have been.
I know that life has thrown you to the ground, but you must get up, dust yourself off and live life.
I am still waiting for him big comeback because he is a worthy actor.

In Terminator 2 Eddie Furlong was like the cool bad boy who every other kid wished they could be.

36 Wil Wheaton Wil Wheaton
37 Jonathan Lipnicki

Jerry Maguire and Stuart little - daniannaactor1

the kid from Let Me In and The Road - InsertNameHere

He's one of the tallest child actors ever. - Yorkshire2001

39 Dean Stockwell

Many people may not be aware that Al on Quantum Leap was a very successful child actor. If you could rent it "The Boy with Green Hair" from 1943, I think, was one of his first movies. You will literally fall in love with those budgy little cheeks and Bambi like wide eyes. So darling!


40 Jamie Bell

This young Brit won a BAFTA for his performance in Billy Elliot beating out Hollywood hitters Ton Hanks, Geoffrey Rush AND Russell Crowe.
