Children in Hollywood sometimes get a bad wrap. Whether they are forced into the industry or the industry eats them alive, not all of them are able to manage the limelight. Some child stars, on the other hand, have been able to achieve major stardom, long-term wealth, and a lifelong career in the film industry.
Luckily, these 15 child stars have an unbelievable net worth and massively successful adult careers.
15. Mayim Bialik, $12 million
Many Mayim Bialik fans most vividly recall her breakout acting role in the hit show Blossom. In fact, it was the film Beaches in 1988 that helped Bialik land her role in Blossom. Bialik eventually took a hiatus from Hollywood to snag her Ph.D. in neuroscience from UCLA. Re-emerging back into acting, Bialik landed a role as Sheldon’s girlfriend in The Big Bang Theory in 2009, where she plays Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler.
