17 Celebrities Who Escaped The “Child Star” Stereotype
Selena Gomez‘s first gig was on children’s TV show Barney and Friends, but she became a household name when she starred on Disney Channel’s Wizards of Waverly Place as Alex Russo. Selena starred in a number of Disney movies following the show’s ending, but really broke out of the child star stereotype when she got the role in raunchy drama Spring Breakers with James Franco. Now, she’s the executive producer of Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why and creates pop bangers as a solo singer. She’s also held the title of Instagram’s most-followed woman before Ariana kicked her off the post this year. Still, she is one successful child star.
