Have you ever seen a hot star of a movie, or a music video as an adult, and thought, “Hey! I remember her from somewhere?” Then you realized that she was chick from Hannah Montana, or that little girl from The Parent Trap, but she is all grown up now, and boy is she a naughty girl! Not every forgotten Disney star ends up being as wild as Miley Cyrus, or Lindsey Lohan for that matter. In fact, you won’t see either of them on here. Yet, you will see plenty of others that you have forgotten were. The point is that Disney has a way of bringing up talented child stars into hot full-fledged, grown up celebrities.
Although, all Disney stars do lack the privacy that most teens crave, and they often end up shedding their youth in the public eye. Meanwhile, we have grown up watching them. Disney stars are our teenage role models, and our crushes. Then comes that rebellious streak. Before we know it, they are bearing it all on the front page of Maxim. They are smokin’ hot too, but of course we already knew this. Even if it was difficult to realize as kids just how hot they would become as adults.
However, they do grow up, and it’s always fun to see what the hot forgotten Disney stars turned out to be like later in life. So, go ahead and feast your eyes on 15 of the hot forgotten Disney stars who are all grown up…
15. Debby Ryan
As a clue of entries to come, here’e a hottie on this list that got her start from Barney & Friends. Debby Ryan appeared on there at thirteen, and her first film was Barney: Lets Go to the Firehouse. However, we still have to give credit Disney as well, because they found her on a nationwide search afterwards. It wasn’t long before Debby was starring as Bailey Pickett, on The Sweet Life on Deck. Debby has also done theme music, and singles for Disney shows, and ended up with her own Disney show, Jessie.
Debby is all grown up, and smokin’ hot. She has a girl-next-door look, with curves that your gaze just has to follow. Although, she allegedly has a bit of that rebellion in her that might slow down her career if she’s not careful. She was arrested for DUI last year, after she wrecked car. Here’s hoping that she’s learned her lesson.
14. Alyson Stoner
Disney first cast Alyson Stoner as co-host of Mikes Super Short Show, and spent some time of The Suite Life of Zack & Cody. However, she is best remembered as Caitlyn Geller, from the Camp Rock movies, and for dancing alongside Missy Elliot in her videos for “Work It”, “Gossip Folks”, and “I’m Really Hot”. Yep, that was her! Now, she’s super-sexy and sings alternative style music, which there isn’t enough of anymore. So, maybe she’ll bring it back.
In the meantime Alyson does voices for video games, has released two albums, appears in a few movies here and there. Plus, she is totally hot! In 2015, Alyson released her own video where she did a medley of the dances that she did as with Missy, and dedicated it to her. It was a hit, of course! How could it not be with this forgotten Disney star in it?
13. Bella Thorne
Bella Thorne was already seasoned as an actress, by the time she first co-starred as CeCe Jones on Disney’s Shake It Up, alongside Zendaya. Thorne was only 12 when filming began for the hit Disney show, but she had years of experience under her belt from appearances in movies and a couple of recurring roles on TV series. For instance, she played Margaux Darling in Dirty Sexy Money, and had won a Young Artist’s Award for her role as Ruby Spivey in My Own Worst Enemy at only 11 years old.
Since then Bella has grown up into a hot young lady. You might remember her as Adam Sandler’s daughter, Larry from Blended, but she is so much hotter now, as you can see above. She is currently working on a movie called Assassination Nation, wherein it appears that she will be quite the rebel girl. She’s been flaunting that purple hair, and the outline of a nipple ring on Snapchat lately. You really should check her out.
12. China Anne McClain
It hasn’t been long since China Anne McClain graduated from Disney, but she is definitely worth mentioning before she becomes forgotten. In fact, she is still working with Disney on some projects, like The Descendants 2 where she is set to play Ursula’s daughter, Uma. but she will be 19 later this year. Her main recurring role with Disney was as Chyna Parks in A.N.T. Farm. She has also done music for the same Disney shows and movies.
China can also be remembered as Jazmine Payne, from Tyler Perry’s House of Pain, and as China James from, Daddy’s Little Girls, but she’s all grown up now. China will be 19 later this year, and she has had no problem shedding that Disney look off-screen. She’s tall, with dark eyes, and a curvy body. We can’t wait to see and hear more of this beauty, which hopefully won’t be long since she’s been cast in the upcoming CW series, Black Lightening.
Another star who’s hot, but still so fresh that she hasn’t quite cut her Disney cord is Zendaya Coleman. She’s tall, sexy, and very mature for her age. You may or not have forgotten that she shared the lead as Rocky Blue on Shake It Up, alongside Bella Thorne. We might have mentioned her earlier, but she is worth having her own section too. She is even more talented than the average Disney star. Not only is she an actress and singer-songwriter, but she has also written a book, Between U and Me: How to Rock Your Tween Years with Style and Confidence, and has her own clothing line.
Zendaya is brimming with self-confidence, and was put down by Giuliana Rancic, after wearing dreadlocks to the Oscars last year. This very thoughtful, sexy 19-year-olds response was to post that Rancic’s slurs were ignorant on her Instagram feed. Look for this confident, mature, and sexy young lady in Spider-Man: Homecoming. It will be out later this year.
10. Selena Gomez
When we first saw Selena Gomez, she was on Barney & Friends. Then she wowed us as we watched her grow up playing Alex Russo, on Wizards of Waverly Place. The show ran from 2007-2012, which was the year Gomez turned 20. She also managed nab roles in various other Disney shows and got a jump start on her music career. Later she caught roles in movies like Romona and Beezus, but didn’t glide as smoothly into acting as an adult. Although, she has found great success in her music career.
It seemed like yesterday she was all over the Disney Channel, or heading up Selena Gomez & the scene. Now it seems like super-hot Selena popped up overnight. Now she’s got all the attention, as she sings at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. What style dress was it that she was wearing? It had a V at the bottom, and at the top. Wait! Is that even possible?
9. Brenda Song
Brenda Song has already come a long since her Disney days. You might have forgotten that starred as Lindsay Lohan’s best friend, in Get a Clue, and acted as London Tipton in The Suite Life of Zack & Cody. She was one of your teenage dream queens, but now she’s all grown up and popping up on your favorite sitcoms, like Scandal, and Dads. Wow, where has the time gone? Have you checked out this chick’s Instagram feed lately? Last September she posted a photo of herself with a South Park back drop, making it look like she had balls.
Although, we must say that she looks ten times sexier on the beach. At least we know that this once has a wonderful sense of humor that makes her beautiful inside and out! The latest news is that Brenda’s set to appear on the new CBS pilot for Real Life.
8. Emily Osment
Surely you have forgotten Emily Osment, who not only played Gerti Giggles in Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams, and Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over. If that didn’t jog your memory, then the name Lily Truscott sure should. She was Miley’s best friend on Hannah Montana. She had several movie singles, and a couple of solo albums to her credit also, but she has done great things as adult celebrity now too.
Emily has grown up into a bodacious hot bombshell, and has already tucked some ABC and Lifetime original movies under her belt. She had formed a band with a friend called Ramshackle, and they performed cover songs of The Beatles in bars. Most recently she has played the role of a drug addict named Jodi, on Mom, but her character died of a drug overdose. Now, you can catch her on the show Young & Hungry.
7. Aly & AJ Michalka
Now, we have too hot forgotten Disney stars, in a bathtub, with matching pyjama bottoms, which they do not have on. Hot sexy sisters… You might be thinking they could be twins, but they’re not. Aly (left) did a lot of projects with Disney on her own, like when she acted as Keely Teslow on Phil of the Future, but they did do the Disney film Cow Belles together as Courtney and Taylor Callum. You might remember them better from their singing career. They have mostly gone by Aly & AJ, but they also went by 78 Violet for a short time.
Anyways, here they are. Two chicks on a bed. By the way, these gals are more than just pretty faces. They have both grown up to be beautiful singers and actresses. You might recognize AJ as Lainy Lewis from The Goldbergs, and Aly as Peyton Charles from the CW series iZombie.
6. Hilary Duff
My, oh my! Lizzie McGuire has grown up to be smokin’ hot! Although, she would probably prefer to be called Hilary Duff now. The above photo is from her photoshoot for the Breathe In, Breathe Out album, which was released in 2015. Hilary hit some rough patches as she was shedding her Disney image, but she moved smoothly past them. She ended up being one of the best Disney influences ever.
Duff’s most recent accomplishments include a couple of albums, including her most recent which we discussed above. She has been featured in ABC films, such as Beauty & the Briefcase, and has appeared on various shows, both in character roles and guest appearances. Her latest role has been on the show Younger. She has an incredible body and is very public about how she stays fit, and posts some incredible pictures on Instagram.
5. Vanessa Hudgens
Have you forgotten who this sexy Disney star was? She was Gabriella Montez, from the High School Musical franchise. It’s more than obvious that Vanessa Hudgens is all grown up. It appears that she most definitely knows what a small teaser can do. She later starred alongside Selena Gomez in Spring Breakers, but adjusted to her role perfectly, whereas Selena ran into trouble.
Vanessa is definitely all grown up now, sassy-hot, and grabbing headlines everywhere she goes. Just yesterday she was blowing kisses on Instagram, in a sexy peach bra top with a matching skirt. I’m not sure just what kind of outfit it was, but it was hot and could make you dream of summer. However, I don’t know if it can beat out the look that she is giving in that photo above. Since leaving Disney, Vanessa has become most-known for her music, but has starred in a few movies.
4. Tanya Chisholm
You might have forgotten all about Tanya Chisholm, but you can rest assured that we haven’t. She was Sharpay’s friend, and the lead Sharpette, Jackie in High School Musical 2, and boy did she grow up to be a stunner. Although, she is better known as Kelly Wainwright from Big Time Rush, on Nickelodeon. Better yet, she also played Lisa Turtle on Saved by the Bell: The Movie. Hopefully we were able to refresh your brain just a bit, but if not the all grown up view is still great. Look into those eyes. They’re staring right at you. Or at least that’s how they make you feel anyway.
It’s too bad, but it appears that this one has chosen to stay out of the limelight. Tanya’s career fell off in 2013, right after Big Time Rush ended. However, she did graduate from the UCLA School of Theater. Her Instagram has her listed as an actress, stylist, and blogger.
3. Kaley Cuoco
Okay, so we know that it’s not likely you would have forgotten Kaley Cuoco, but could anyone, really pass up a chance to just look at her? Hey, who’s to say you didn’t at least forget she was a steamy hot Disney star. She appeared in the Disney movie Alley Cats Strike Back, in 2000. She was Alex’s friend Elisa, but she looked a lot different back then. That was before she got your attention in 8 Simple Rules.
The rest of Kaley Cuoco’s story is history. She is totally hot, with green eyes, blonde hair, and a beautiful body. We love watching her on The Big Bang Theory, even when she acts ditsy, and she has a way of drawing our attention to her Instagram feed. Lately we’ve seen her share cupping lines on her back, from some weird sort of treatment. Hey, I was more interested in her treatment, not her back. Although, I have no clue what the treatment was about.
2. Demi Lovato
Demi Lovato is another Barney & Friends star, who went on to be a Disney star, and who turned out seriously hot. She is doing very grown up poses in yoga pants for you, in the image that you see above. You might have forgotten that she was in the Disney movie Camp Rock, and Camp Rock 2. Then she went on to become Allison Sonny Monroe, in Sonny with a Chance. Demi has also found great success in music and had released three albums by the time she appeared in the fifth season of Glee.
In recent years Lovato has released Confident, which is her fifth solo album, and has been focusing on her sobriety. In an interview with ET, Demi recently joked about the possibility of a new Camp Rock, with Joe Jonas. However, not the family friendly type. No, she was talking R-rated, which you’ve got to admit sounds quite interesting.
1. Chelsea Kane
You couldn’t have forgotten about Chelsea Kane from Disney’s show, Jonas. She was the band’s stylist and friend, but she was already an older teen by then. You probably were younger and had crush on her, or maybe she was your age. Either way, she was just the right age to dream about. That was nothing compared to the level of hotness she is now though.
Chelsea is brimming with confidence and has a sexy glow. Make sure you’re looking up and not down. Her more recent exploits include the ABC original series, Baby Daddy, and she’s even does the voice of Arthricia on Rick & Morty. That’s on Adult Swim, you should check it out if you haven’t, but the fact that she does a voice on there makes her even hotter. Kind of like Mila Kunis, with Meg’s voice from Family Guy. So, which of these forgotten Disney stars are hottest, and which did remember the most?
