Making a movie isn't child's play - even for a child actor. Throughout Hollywood history, kids in the industry have been called upon to act in harrowing roles that push the limits of their abilities, and according to some critics, the boundaries of good taste. Here are some of the most famous examples of underage actors in mature roles…

I would not call it protecting a child's innocence. Explain to me how child actors are allowed to be in dark R rated films, but if a parent plays pranks on their kid on UZvid, there is public outcry they loose custody.

I don't agree because when the kids are acting, they're not watching the movie as a whole. They don't see what we do on screen. Most likely when working with kids the directors make it more fun. Look at how well adjusted Natalie Portman turned out, Kirsten Dunst is also doing well still. I didn't watch this vid to know who else. So can't blame their downfall on a movie roll alone if that were to happen, something more is going on.

On a similar note it bothers me when they have actors in movies that are in nude or sexual situations that are playing underage characters. I remember in the original Stepfather, it shows a girl showering...she's supposed to be 14. In Sixteen Candles, they're watching the prom queen shower, 16. In Leprechaun, stunt boobies of a girl (you know, never shows the face and boobies in the same screen...). It's pretty sick if you think about it.

First off I in no way condone this, which is part of the reason I don't like the original work, Juliet is 14 in Romeo and Juliet while Romeo is in his mid to late 20's in the play. So while there are five years between Leo and Claire. I personally hate that Romeo and Juliet is seen as a love story. It is a story about a guy who has his ego damaged when a beautiful woman turns him down he just happens to fall for her younger even better-looking cousin? and Juliet, while intrigued in the good looking Romeo, doesn't seem overly interested until she finds out he is a Montague and there for her sworn enemy. Who else would a rebellious teenage girl want to marry if she is being forced into marriage? Sruly, not Paris who has been picked by her parents. So if she does not want to go to a nunnery or marry Paris, why not do what her father wants and marry but the son of his enemy who is alluring with his looks and extra years.

Tatum smoking at nine-years old is the product of the tobacco industry requiring the productions they contribute to "advertise" smoking by up to 60% of the actors/actresses. The public, that would be you, tolerate this because they are willing to overlook this abuse to get their own jollies off the screen. If the public was really caring, they would be sending emails and letters to Directors telling them they are not going to view movies that have smoking in it. But are offended by violence, sexuallity, and vulgar language.

They... are... acting. It's just a role. Why is this such a big deal? I mean, people aren't complaining that 10 year old KIDS are forced to WORK hours on end each day. Nope, that's not a big deal... the pretend role they are playing in a STORY is the big deal. Give me a break.

This is why these child actors are professional. They seriously good, they see it as a role and a job, nothing more. That's why they could do it. I swear these child actors are a lot more matured than me and I'm 19.

"Movie Roles That Were Too Mature For Child Actors", or "Watch Hollywood Molest Young Children and Promote Pedophilia in Broad Daylight Without Any Negative Repercussions" I can see this being used as evidence in a trial on the Supreme Court to shut Hollywood down and incarcerate the corrupt puppet masters. Permanently.

Here is the thing. These are movies and the movie "Kids" is about what a lot of teenagers do and shouldn't have been as shocking as it was to people. I watched it at like 14 and related to some of it for sure. I was making stupid reckless decisions at that age that may not have been as intense as theirs but they were similar. They're not unrealistic most of the time.
