20 Stars Who Weren't Even Born When Empire Started
As Empire celebrates our 20th birthday, we look back at the movie stars who have not only started their careers since our debut, but who weren't even born when our first issue hit the shelves. It's either depressing or inspring, we're not sure which...

Miley Cyrus
You know her from: Her massively successful pop career and Hannah Montana movies.
Why's she good? Well, she's popular anyway, massively so with the tweenies who comprise her audience. And she's already caused a few tabloid storms - not bad for a 16 year-old.
Will she have an adult career? Again, it doesn't matter financially, but given her current levels of fame and popularity it would take a Lohan-style implosion to slow her momentum. And the last time a child star was this popular, she was Shirley Temple and grew up to be a UN Ambassador. So we can see Cyrus going into politics, much as we'd prefer not to.

Im very surprised not to see Will Smith's son Jaden in this article, from what i have seen he has a very promising career ahead of him. He impressed me in The day the Earth stood still and i though he was amazing along side Daddy in Pursuit of Happyness. Read More

How old is the lad who plays Chekov in the new Star Trek. He's brilliant, I was very impressed. plus I see he's a young Kyle Reese in T4 too. Surely one to watch. Read More

Ronan is already miles beyond Fanning/Breslin/Robb at this point. I think shes more talented than anyone on that list. She's already one of the frontrunners in the Best Actress race this year...w/ her lead role in Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones...and has Winslets 2-time nomination record in her sights. Not to mention she has a big role in Peter Weir's first film in like 6 years. Read More

Dakota Fanning is quite talented and has proved it. I can't think of any others that match her. She's stolen scenes from Tom Cruise, Denzel Washington, Charlize Theron that's not the easiest thing to do Abigail Breslin is another talent, but not nearly as talented as Dakota, just an opinion.

8 Josh Hutcherson

While I'm admittedly not familiar with his work, his resemblance to Chris O'Donnell is extremely unsettling! Read More

9 Will Poulter

...was also excellent in Channel 4's surprisingly funny "School of Comedy", a terrible-idea-on-paper sketch show performed entirely by young 'uns. Read More

Good to see Josh Hutcherson present in the list, his performances in Little Manhattan and Bridge to Terabithia were utterly compelling. Annasophia Robb is a very talented young actress too. Read More

11 what about...?

Juno Temple? And do another of these lists in ten years time to see how many are still going? Mark it in your diaries now! After all, I remember Empire picking out Dina Meyer as the next Sigourney never can tell. Read More

well, as was previously mentioned Rupert Grint is indeed older than Empire. If you all love Abigail Breslin, watch the episode of NCIS she was in. She played a blind girl that was abducted (2x01 - See No Evil. My fav ep!!) And what about Georgia Groome? I reckon she has a bright future Read More

13 Another star under 20
Posted on Friday May 8, 2009, 20:46 by starpeach
Chloë Grace Moretz would also fit well on this list. She was featured in your "first look" column for the June issue as Hit Girl in the upcoming Matthew Vaughn directed comic book film KICK ASS. She has starred in many films at the young age of 12 including The Amityville Horror, Big Mommas House 2 , The Eye, and 2009 Sundance favorite and future summer hit 500 Days of Summer with Joseph Gordon Levitt and Zooey Deschanel. She is a terrific and very endearing young actress who seems to have staying power. Read More

Rupert Grint is nearly 21and was already born when Empire first came out, replace him with Elle Fanning (Dakota's sister) who already showed how good an actress she was in 'The Nines' and upcoming 'Phoebe in Wonderland', also was good in mini series The Lost Room, Babel where she played Brad & Cate's daughter and with them again as the younger Daisy in Curious Case of Benjamin Button.     Read More
