Here’s Your Favorite Child Star Who are All Grown up, Then&Now
3. Jonathan Lipnicki
Jonathan was one of the most in-demand child actors in the late ’90s and early ’00s. The child star quickly rose to fame after making his acting debut in the 1996 film Jerry Maguire before starring in Stuart Little, and in which he played Ray Boyd, alongside Tom Cruise and Renée Zellweger. But as he grew older, Jonathan's childhood fame saw him bullied and labelled a "has-been" as he tried to pursue a career in acting.
In 2018, Lipnicki opened up about the bullying he experienced in middle school, hoping that sharing his experience could lend some comfort to others. When he's not on TV, Jonathan keeps himself busy with mixed martial arts and has a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. He's certainly come a long way since the little boy with spiked hair and round glasses.
