A couple years back I was randomly flipping through the channels, when I spotted Home Alone 3. It was, of course, the attempted continuation of the series without Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern or anyone else you care about from the first two films, and it was just awful. It had something to do with Russian spies and a computer chip in a toy car. Real garbage. But just as I was about to turn it off, I noticed that the young girl playing the sister looked remarkably familiar. Doing a quick search, I discovered that it was none other than Scarlett Johansson.
She's not typically referred to as a "former child actor" (that may have something to do with her success), but she has been doing movies since she was ten, her first being Rob Reiner's North. She would later become a star with her role in Lost In Translation, but before that, she was 13 and starring alongside Robert Redford in The Horse Whisperer and E! (via Gawker)
It starts off a bit awkwardly, with Scarlett making an out-of-context comment about bursting out of the womb, but really it's just cute to see her as an energetic teenager. Then you look at the above picture and begin to feel really awkward. Don't blame me, though. I'm just the reporter. Check out the video below.
