Fame doesn't usually last forever — but it's especially tough on former child stars! Whether by choice or not, these pint-size celebs dropped off the Hollywood radar.

What are they up to now? Watch the video above, courtesy of WatchMojo, for all the details!

10. Peter Ostrom — Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, 1971. Recruited in a nationwide search and signed a contract for three films, but that didn't pan out. See what he looks like now in the video!

9. Mara Wilson — Matilda, Mrs. Doubtfire, Miracle on 34th Street. The adorable star left showbiz by choice in the early 2000s.

8. Jonathan Lipnicki — Jerry Maguire, Dr. Doolittle, Stuart Little. This guy is still acting — in what films?

7. Ralph Macchio — The Karate Kid, My Cousin Vinny, The Outsiders. Dancing With the Stars fans know what Ralphie got up to.

6. The Two Coreys: Haim and Feldman — The Lost Boys. One of the saddest tales of child-star friendship… pretty much ever.

5. Jonathan Taylor Thomas — Home Improvement, The Lion King. If you ever saw I'll Be Home for Christmas, you may have a decent idea of what happened to JTT.

4. Edward Furlong — Terminator 2, Detroit Rock City. Eddie met some struggles post-child stardom, but he's still active.

3. Haley Joel Osment — The Sixth Sense, Forrest Gump, AI. Haley fell off our radars after his voice broke, but he's actually still working, too.

2. Jake Lloyd — Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. Why did Jake, now 25, say, "I do what I can to not get recognized on the street"?

1. Macaulay Culkin — Home Alone, My Girl, Richie Rich, The Pagemaster. Wait, we're actually going to disagree with this one! He dated Mila Kunis for several years, and is now touring with his pizza-themed cover band.
