Lohan never achieved the America Lohan never achieved the America's Sweetheart status many were hoping for. Instead, she spiraled out of control. She has been arrested twice for driving under the influence, attended drug and alcohol rehabilitation three times, and was charged with stealing a necklace from a jewelry store. LiLo got some good news when she was cast as Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime film "Liz and Dick" earlier this year. While Lohan believes this could be her great comeback, it is a far cry from the blockbusters of her teen years.

  • In 2000, commercial actress Taylor Momsen landed the coveted role of Cindy Lou Who in Jim Carey's "How the Grinch Stole Christmas."  At the tender age of 14, Momsen was cast as Jenny Humphrey in the CW's "Gossip Girl," receiving acclaim for her spirited performance as the troubled younger sister.  Who knew life was about to imitate art...
  • Momsen's "Gossip Girl" tenure ended in 2011 when she declared she was leaving the show to focus on her band, The Pretty Reckless. Yet many believed the departure was because Momsen's behavior was spiraling out of control.  The teen openly discussed her sexual exploits with the media, despite being under 18, and infamously wore duct tape over her nipples at a UK music festival.
  • Amanda Bynes began her acting career at the young age of seven, and by 13 appeared on "All That" and had her own show, "The Amanda Show." Bynes had continued success with teen chick flicks such as "She's the Man" and "What a Girl Wants," co-starring Colin Firth.
  • Bynes shocked the Twitterverse when she announced her retirement from acting at age 24. Soon after, however, she changed her mind and appeared to be ready to act again. But on April 6, 2012, Bynes was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving after allegedly hitting a sheriff's patrol car. Bynes tweeted disputed the claim that she was drunk at tweeted Tuesday, "“Hey @BarackObama…I don’t drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don’t hit and run. The end.”
  • In the early 1970s, Danny Bonaduce achieved fame as the annoying little brother Danny in the musical television show "The Patridge Family."  The show ran from 1970 to 1974, and co-starred teen heartthrob David Cassidy.
  • Bonaduce never achieved the level of success he was looking for following the "Partridge's" cancellation. He abused drugs and alcohol well into adulthood, and even got into a physical altercation with "Survivor" villian Jonny Fairplay, though he was never charged with a crime.
  • Teen heartthrob Leif Garrett made it big in the 1970s, starring in all three "Walking Tall" movies and taking over Willie Aimes' popular "Odd Couple" role. He also had a successful stint in music, with his cover of "Runaround Sue" hitting number 13 on the Billboard Music charts.
  • Garrett's troubles started at a young age. On his 18th birthday, Garrett drunkenly crashed his car and paralyzed his passenger and best friend, Roland Winkler. In 2006, Garrett was arrested for possession of narcotics --a charge that was repeated in 2010.
  • Yes, "Home Alone" is a children's movie. But name one adult who doesn't love Kevin McAllister and the Wet Bandits.
  • At 18, Culkin married actress Rachel Minor, only to divorce four years later.  He did manage to date Mila Kunis for nine years, but plead guilty in 2004 to possession of marijuana and two other controlled substances.
  • Britney Spears was 11 when she joined "Disney's Mickey Mouse Club," and within the next 10 years she released a double platinum album, dated Justin Timberlake, and successfully defeated Christina Aguilera for the title of ultimate pop princess.
  • In what was easily the decade's most pubic meltdown, Spears had a drunken Vegas wedding, personally shaved her own head, and married backup dancer Kevin Federline. Since 2008, the mother of two has tried to stage a comeback and was recently appointed as a celebrity judge on "The X Factor."
  • As one half of the 1980s so-called teen duo "The Two Coreys," Corey Haim broke into Hollywood with films such as "Lucas," "The Lost Boys," and "License to Drive." Both Haim and best friend Corey Feldman garnered the squeals of teenage girls, and frequently appeared on the covers of youth magazines.
  • Haim's teen years were wild, and the actor had multiple trips to rehab for drug and alcohol abuse.  He was also engaged three times, including once to "Baywatch" actress Nicole Eggert.  On March 10, 2010, the 38-year-old troubled former child star died from pneumonia and a heart condition.
  • "Whatchu talkin' 'bout Willis?" For Gary Coleman, all it took was that one phrase to endear him to American families in front of their TV screens. Coleman starred on "Diff'rent Strokes" as Arnold Jackson, and his chubby cheeks and 4'8'' stature made him look like the perfect little brother.
  • Coleman had few roles following the cancellation of "Diff'rent Strokes." In 1989, Coleman successfully sued his foster family for misappropriations of funds, but in 1999 he filed for bankruptcy. Coleman died of a brain hemorrhage on March 28, 2010.
  • In 1998, Lindsay Lohan was but the 11-year-old star of "The Parent Trap" and was poised to become America's most-beloved redhead since Lucille Ball. Lohan took time off to go to school following the Disney film's success, but returned to the spotlight with teen hits such as "Freaky Friday," "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen," and "Mean Girls." Little did anyone know what was going to happen next...
  • Lohan never achieved the America's Sweetheart status many were hoping for. Instead, she spiraled out of control. She has been arrested twice for driving under the influence, attended drug and alcohol rehabilitation three times, and was charged with stealing a necklace from a jewelry store.  LiLo got some good news when she was cast as Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime film "Liz and Dick" earlier this year. While Lohan believes this could be her great comeback, it is a far cry from the blockbusters of her teen years.
  • The youngest, cutest, and most talented of the "Jackson 5" brothers, Michael Jackson jumped into the spotlight with his performance of "I Want You Back" on the "Ed Sullivan Show" in 1969. Over the next two decades, Jackson released a string of hits, included arguably the greatest music video of all time, 1983's "Thriller."
  • In the mid-1980s, Jackson's skin started paling in color dramatically. Jackson claimed this was a result of lupus, but some believed he was bleaching his skin. Jackson was accused of child molestation twice, first in 1993 and then again 10 years later. On June 25, 2009, the 50-year-old father of three died as a result of an overdose of the drug Propofol.  His personal physician, Conrad Murray, was later found guilty of involuntary manslaughter.
