Are you listening? Because last time we checked, Child Labor Laws were created for a reason! From substance use to sex appeal, underage child stars are taking Hollywood by storm… and not in a good way. Stage-moms across the nation are keeping their eye-on-the-prize and teaching their children a great work ethic – but is it coming at the cost of their childhood? What do you think – is Hollywood exploiting children? Or are parents with questionable morals to blame?
Here are 25 rising stars engaging in troubling adult-like behaviors… we wish would act like kids every once in awhile.
#1. When your mom’s Cindy Crawford and you’re well on your way to being a supermodel, we kinda get it. But honestly, this is inappropriate. Kaia Gerber is only 14! Parental controls exist for a reason, right?
#2. Teen mom, Farrah Abraham, received a lot of criticism for posting pictures of her little girl in make-up and a swimsuit. Considering Farrah’s own history – which includes a sex tape and presumed PR stunts – the public is concerned that she is exploiting, and/or corrupting, her daughter with poor values…
#3. Oh, Alana “Honey Boo-Boo” Thompson… what was your mom thinking? And what were we thinking? Here’s an example of child exploitation at its finest!
#4. Lily Rose Depp is a cross between a French supermodel, Vanessa Paradis, and a Hollywood A-Lister, Johnny Depp. There’s no denying that she’s stunning. But this sexy dress was worn to her Senior Prom – should this minor be allowed to go bra-less?
