Hollywood has lived through cases throughout its history of children who rise to fame suddenly after starring in a successful movie, something that has two notorious cases with Macaulay Culin and Haley Joel Osment, the latter protagonist of ‘The sixth Sense‘, a screening that took place in 1999. At that time he was 10 years old and he had a very little expected success that caused him to be even nominated for an Oscar.
A life dedicated to acting
His case was curious, as he was discovered at a talent agency while visiting an Ikea store. Since then, appeared in a large number of films, in addition to ‘The sixth Sense‘, for example ‘Forrest Gump‘. The interpretation is more than settled in her family, and is that her little sister, Emily, is also an actress, and recognized for her role in one of the most followed series: ‘Hannah Montana‘.
Despite the fame, when I turned 18, Haley Joel Osment decided to continue her studies although focused on acting, studying experimental theater at New York University: “It was important for me to decide if this is what I really wanted to do with the rest of my life,” he said about this moment that caused him to disappear from the media spotlight, although it was not before starring in a scandal.
The actor was in a car accident in Los Angeles during that year, driving under the influence of alcohol and breaking a rib and a shoulder blade, in addition to being fined $ 1,500 and forced to go to rehab and three years of probation. Since then, he went to the background until reappearing in theaters with other roles very different from those he did as a child. This is the case of ‘Entourage’, ‘Yoga hosers’ or ‘Sex ed’.
Today, at 33, presents a somewhat different physique, with more weight and a beard, although with practically the same face as when he was a child. His life is still linked to the cinema and, especially, to television, since he has appeared in a large number of series in recent years and in one of the latest Netflix productions, ‘Extremely cruel, evil and perverse’, in 2019.
