You won't recognize some of these former child stars

Abigail Breslin's wide-eyed, bespectacled, 10-year-old face was everywhere when she starred in 2006's "Little Miss Sunshine," playing goofy charmer Olive Hoover. But she's changed so much in the seven years since then -- growing up and dying her hair platinum blond -- even her fellow castmates on "August: Osage County" didn't recognize her at a photo shoot, she told E! News.

From the Olsen twins to Miley Cyrus, see if you can recognize these actors who started young in Hollywood.

Fans have the same problem. "I was at a supermarket and this girl was like, 'Oh my God, that's Abigail Breslin,'" the actress told E! "And her friend was like, 'No, it's not. She looks nothing like that.'"

Time to update your mental memory books. Let's do the time warp and catch up on how child stars such as Breslin, Raven Symone, Drew Barrymore, Dakota and Elle Fanning, the Olsen twins, Macaulay Culkin and others looked back when they got their first breaks, and then compare them to how they appear today.
