Folks, it’s time to shift our attention to a special breed of actors: the ones who can’t remember performing in their respective films. They come into our lives as little ones, leave our lives as little ones, and often go on to lead perfectly normal non-child star lives — y’know, just with some excellent conversational perks, like, “I’ve been kidnapped by David Bowie,” and “Bill Murray protected me from demons.” Have you ever wondered what these former tiny movie stars look like as grownups? We certainly have. So, after the jump, we track down the current photos of 11 famous movie babies from the likes of Labyrinth, Popeye, The Godfather, and more (but not from Three Men and a Baby, because our Internet detective skills have failed us in that search). Check ’em out, and hit the comments to let us know what you think.
Toby Froud: Toby from Labyrinth (1986)
In the mid-’80s, the skilled costume designer for Labyrinth, Brian Froud, had a baby son, Toby. The film needed a baby actor, and the rest is history. Toby followed in his father’s footsteps and currently designs puppets — he’s even worked at the Muppet workshop in New York. All horns aside, Toby Froud seems like the type of person who fully appreciates the awesome fact that he, as a child, was the one who reminded David Bowie of “the babe,” and we appreciate that.
Sofia Coppola: Baby from The Godfather (1972)
You know the baby who was christened in The Godfather? That was a tiny newborn Sofia Coppola.
Wesley Ivan Hurt: Swee’pea from Popeye (1980)
When searching the web for current photos of Wesley Ivan Hurt, otherwise known as Swee’pea in Popeye, we initially had no luck. That is, until we found a “vlog” of the charismatic former baby actor, in which he promotes the Save Wesley Ivan Hurt Foundation: “If you can’t help Swee’pea out once in a while, where’s your life headed?” We agree. Tim and Eric, are you going to sweep this guy up or what?
Dylan and Casey Boersma: George Banks-MacKenzie from Father of the Bride Part II (1995)
Even though George Banks’ grandson had seemingly very little time onscreen in Father of the Bride Part II, the role still required twins to satisfy child-labor regulations. Unlike the others on this list, these two continued their acting careers, and most recently can be seen alongside Owen Wilson in Drillbit Taylor.
Will and Hank Deutschendorf: Oscar from Ghostbusters II (1989)
Here’s another role that was played by twins — Oscar in Ghostbusters II. Both babies grew up to become karate instructors, which is sort of like being Ghostbusters, so we approve.
Ruth and Kate Greenfield: Elora Danan from Willow (1988)
Ah, yet another part played by twins. Thanks to our buddies at BuzzFeed, we have this awesome picture of one of the twins and Warwick Davis at a recent Willow reunion. We’re assuming it was private, otherwise we would’ve been all up in that.
Adam Robert Worton and Joseph Jacob Worton: Baby Bink in Baby’s Day Out (1994)
Baby Bink was just about as cute as they come.
Kristina and Michelle Kennedy: Elizabeth Wiatt in Baby Boom (1987)
Remember Baby Boom, starring the world’s beloved Diane Keaton? That lovely baby grew into two lovely young ladies.
Daniel and Joshua Shalikar: Adam Szalinski from Honey, I Blew Up the Kid (1992)
This little (and sometimes big) one was as reckless as they come. We expected the grownup versions of Adam Szalinski to look a little more like Michael Cera, but maybe it’s just the haircuts. Bring back the curls, Shalikar brothers!
Kristen and Kaitlyn Hooper: Pubert Addams from Addams Family Values (1993)
No one can rock a baby mustache like Kristen and Kaitlyn Hooper.
T.J. Kuhn: Nathan Jr. in Raising Arizona (1987)
Here we have Nathan Jr., the “quintuplet” in Raising Arizona who got to spend the most time with the Coen brothers, Holly Hunter, and a disheveled Nic Cage. Check him out now — rocking a skinny tie, classy as can be.
