45 of Your Childhood Crushes (Then and Now)

Sorry to say, but some of the hottest teen actors of the ’80s and ’90s are now residents on the list of ugliest former child actors, while others find themselves on among the child stars who grew up to look like muppets. But fear not: the vast majority of actresses who were hot in your childhood are as hot (or hotter) now. This list of before and after pictures of the hottest crushes from your childhood is a side-by-side comparison of what became of all the hottest actresses from your youth.

Fair warning: some of the results are not pretty. If you fear that the fantasies of your youth are about to be spoiled by the sandy vaginas of time, you may be right. Of course, some of these actresses are still totally boner-worthy (some of them are still working and could easily rank among the hottest women of primetime) and worth an update in your mental picture file, so carry on with the greatest before and after pictures of your childhood crushes.
