Good Looking Hollywood Child Celebrities Who Grew Ugly

19. Daniel Radcliffe

Everybody knows this face for his role in Harry potter right? Daniel Jacob Radcliffe rose to prominence as the title character in the Harry Potter film series. He was the cute kid who made his acting debut at 10 years of age in BBC One’s 1999 television film David Copperfield, followed by his cinematic debut in 2001’s The Tailor. He is no longer a cute boy, he is an awkward looking young man, and that’s a good thing for him. He now has big scraggly eyebrows and a pretty big nose, giving his look a lot of character that should enable him to get a lot of interesting roles as he grows older and tries to break into adult Hollywood. However, we’ll always know him as the cute little wizard, no matter what he goes on to do.
