Top 25 Hottest Celebs Under 25

Disney child stars… Disney child stars everywhere. It’s the year 2016 and they’re all ‘growing up’. Youngsters everywhere are running around looking and acting like adults, and the rest of us get to play “guess who’s of legal age?” Though a lot of them have grown to be respectable young adults, most are just disgraceful. But then, the more disgraceful they are, the more we find them entertaining. Which is actually kind of scary.

Anyway, let’s put a hold on the judgment and get to the good stuff. Hollywood is filled with people who don’t look their age. Mostly women (thank you makeup), but men also have their fair share of shock value regarding age and physical appearance. Whether they look older or younger than they actually are, it’s always fun to see just where they stand on the hotness/age scale. Not only that, but the level of recognition they have considering their age is also pretty impressive. So, we thought we’d give you a list of celebs that are rocking our world before they even reach 25. As a bonus, we’ve also decided to add their respective net worth; because we want to make you feel bad about how much you’re worth next to these youngsters.

25 Selena Gomez (23)

Born: July 22, 1992

Net worth: $16 million

24 Sophie Turner (20)

Born: February 21, 1996

Net worth: $5 million

It seems as though this girl came out of nowhere, and she kind of did; along with every other actor to play in HBO’s Game of Thrones series. As we all know, Sophie Turner plays Sansa Stark and basically owes her whole career to this show. Then again, her talent probably has something to do with it as well. She really does play a good Sansa; after all of the plot twists, drama, and gore, she’s ready for anything. We’ll actually get to see her playing a young Jean Grey in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. Should be interesting…

23 Demi Lovato (23)

Born: August 20, 1992

Net worth: $15 million

Fun fact: Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez are real life friends. Other fun fact: they both started off their careers appearing on Barney & Friends and then on Disney channel shows. Final fun fact: Demi’s mom was a cheerleader for the Dallas Cowboys. At the ripe age of 23, she’s released a total of 5 albums, appeared on various TV shows, and also starred as one of the judges on the popular singing competition X-Factor.

22 Miley Cyrus (23)

Born: November 23, 1992

Net worth: $165 million

Please, hold back the eye-roll. Yes, this young starlet has created quite the name for herself. Though the word ‘dignity’ seems to have escaped her vocabulary (was that too harsh?), we have to give her credit for getting her name out there. No publicity is bad publicity– right? Miley Cyrus is only 23 and she has managed to change the entire world’s view of wrecking balls. Ok, she also has a great singing voice and her music is disgustingly catchy. We said it. Moving on…

21 Bella Thorne (18)

Born: October 8, 1997

Net worth: $2 million

No, she is not a Disney Channel child star. Yes, she is super young (she’s 18!), beautiful, and up and coming. You’ll remember her in the comedy Blended where she played alongside Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. She also got to show off her talent when she was cast as a high school ‘mean girl’ in the 2015 comedy The Duff. Bella Thorne has played in countless commercials, and she’s even guest starred in TV shows like Dirty Sexy Money, Entourage, and The OC.

20 Ariel Winter (18)

Born: January 28, 1998

Net worth: $7 million

She also appeared in the children’s movies Barney: Let’s go to the Firehouse, 16 Wishes, and Radio Rebel. Most recently, she made an appearance in the Boy Meets World spin-off Girl Meets World.

18 Alyson Stoner (22)

Born: August 11, 1993

Net worth: $1.5 million

Barely recognizable, Alyson Stoner is all grown up and she is absolutely beautiful. Let’s jog your memory… she was the little girl in Missy Elliot’s music video for ‘Misdemeanor’ and ‘Work It’. She also sat alongside Mike in the Disney Channel classic Mike's Super Short show. Aside from other TV and movie appearances, one of her most significant roles was in Step Up and Step Up: All In.

17 Olivia Culpo (23)

Born: May 8, 1992

Net worth: $500 thousand

Rhode Island native Olivia Culpo made a name for herself when she won the Miss Universe pageant in 2012. Though, some would rather say she was put in the spotlight when she started dating Nick Jonas. Actually, she is also recognized in social media for her great fashion sense; perhaps that’s why she’s famous? Nah, that’s just silly. Isn’t it? We’ll just let you pick which deserves more acclaim.

Fun fact: she plays the cello! She actually was part of various Rhode Island orchestras and has even performed with the Boston Accompanietta (why isn’t this more known?).

16 Gigi Hadid (20) & Bella Hadid (19)

Gigi Hadid

Bella Hadid

Born: October 9, 1996

These girls are not even legal (or just barely legal depending on which country you consider) and they’re slowly taking over Hollywood. One is more stunning than the other and both have become quite successful in the modeling industry. Gigi started her modeling career as a toddler for Baby Guess, while Bella began her career through various ad campaigns; eventually, they both signed with IMG Models. Both sisters have walked for such high-end designers as Chanel, Balmain, Givenchy, Tom Ford, and Marc Jacobs.

15 Ansel Elgort (22)

Born: March 14, 1994

Net worth: $2 million

This one’s for the ladies… the younger ladies, that is. He’s 22, and totally dreamy. Best known for his roles in The Divergent Series and the romance film The Fault in our Stars. If you haven’t gotten your fix quite yet, worry not. We’ll be seeing more of him in the near future; he is said to star in the upcoming crime drama Billionaire Boys Club. On top of an acting career, Ansel Elgort is also an EDM DJ. He’s already released a couple of singles, and in 2015, he signed a record deal with Island Records. Not bad Mr. Elgort, not bad at all.

14 Nick Robinson (21)

Born: March 22, 1995

Net worth: $3 million

Of all the young actors, Nick Robinson got to play in one of the coolest movies of 2015, Jurassic World. Prior to his debut on the blockbuster screen, he played on the sitcom Melissa & Joey, has made an appearance in Boardwalk Empire, and played in the Disney Channel original movie Frenemies alongside Bella Thorne and Zendaya.

Before even the age of 10, she was nominated for the Young Artist Award for Best Performance in a Feature Film. She went on to play various roles, most commonly for the Kick-Ass series, Hugo, Carrie, and If I Stay.

9 Ariana Grande (22)

Born: June 26, 1993

Net worth: $10 million

With the release of her latest single ‘Dangerous Woman’, and her great sense of humor, this cutie is stealing everyone’s attention. You’ll recognize her as that awesome girl who could do amazing singing impressions; from Celine Dion, to Britney Spears, Ariana Grande has quite a wide vocal range, and some have even compared her to Mariah Carey. Talent aside, it’s just incredibly entertaining to watch her do all of those impressions.

8 Nick Jonas (23)

Born: September 16, 1992

Net worth: $18 million

Before becoming a part of the trio boy-band we all know and love (cleverly named The Jonas Brothers), Nick Jonas actually had his start on the Broadway stage. He played roles in A Christmas Carol, Les Miserables, and Beauty and the Beast. He’s also created somewhat of an acting career for himself in film and on TV. Eventually, the Jonas brothers realized that Nick was actually the cooler one of the three and, to the dismay of teen girls everywhere, he ventured off into the music world to create a solo career; the Jonas Brothers were no more.

7 Kate Upton (23)

Born: June 10, 1992

Net worth: $20 million

Without question, you know this face. Kate Upton made her first big splash when she graced the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine in 2012. She had been named rookie of the year in 2011, and even appeared on the cover in 2013 as well. Newbie or not, being cover girl twice in a row is quite the feat in Sports Illustrated history. Upton has also started a minor acting career. In 2014, she starred in The Other Woman alongside Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann.

6 Kylie Jenner (18) & Kendall Jenner (20)

Kylie Jenner

Born: August 10, 1997

Net worth: $3 million

Kendall Jenner

Born: November 3, 1995

Net worth: $2 million

Talk about a dynamic duo! These sisters have taken the social media world by storm along with their other half-siblings, you all know them: The Kardashians. With every post, Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner gain more and more popularity. However, being social media icons isn’t their only ‘accomplishment’. They have a book! It’s called Rebels: City of Indra, and it’s actually ghostwritten by some other woman (Google it). But they’re not only authors, no, no. Kendall is also a successful fashion model and Kylie has dabbled in nail-polish colors. Together, they’re worth about $5 million dollars and they can’t even legally drink a glass of champagne to celebrate (in the US)… what a shame.

5 Zayn Malik (23)

Born: January 12, 1993

Net worth: $20 million

If you haven’t considered starting a cheesy boy-band, you should. Provided you’re half decent looking, that is (you’ll get eaten alive otherwise). Teen girls around the world will swoon over you, and give you all their money to buy things that remind them of you– and also your albums. Between Backstreet Boys, N’Sync, The Jonas Brothers, and One Direction, there just can never be enough boy-bands, nor will we ever get sick of them. Historically, the world craves boy-bands, so just go for it. Alright, that’s enough of a rant about boy-bands. Zayn Malik: ex One Direction member, now solo singer, boy turned man-ish, and worth $20 millon.

4 Zendaya (19)

Born: September 1, 1996

Net worth: $1.5 million

She’s 19 years old, she’s beautiful, and she’s a quadruple threat; Zendaya sings, acts, dances, and models. California-born, she began her acting career in local theatre and eventually was cast in the Disney Channel series Shake It Up. She then got a break with her modeling career when she got a contract with Macy’s and Old Navy. In 2013, Zendaya signed a recording deal with Hollywood Records and released her first album.

3 Victoria Justice (23)

Born: February 19, 1993

Net worth: $8 million

From the age of 8, Justice decided she wanted to act, and began her career by starring in various commercials. She guest-appeared in TV shows as well, most notably in Gilmore Girls. Victoria Justice gained most of her recognition for her roles on the Nickelodeon shows Zoey 101, and Victorious. It is said that her part in Zoey 101 is what led to the creation of Victorious. When it became known that she could sing and dance, her Victorious character, Tori, was actually created based on those talents.

2 Dylan O’Brien (24)

Born: August 26, 1991

Net worth: $5 million

Dylan O’Brien started his acting career on the MTV series Teen Wolf in 2011. Since then, he certainly has come a long way. While the show gained popularity, as did his character, he landed a role in The Internship opposite such big names as Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson. Though his character in Teen Wolf is what first gave him the chance to demonstrate his acting talent, he really got to show us what he’s got as the main character in the film series The Maze Runner. Bonus: he has a YouTube channel where he directs, produces, and stars in comic film shorts.

1 Abigail Breslin (20)

Born: April 14, 1996

Net worth: $12 million

This young, beautiful blonde is a like a ray of sunshine, you can even call her ‘Little Miss Sunshine’. See what I did there? Ok, it was the first and last cheesy joke, promise. So, Abigail Breslin was an absolute hit in Little Miss Sunshine. The 2006 film even got her a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress; she was only 10! Other movies you’ll remember her in are Signs (her first film role), No Reservations, My Sister’s Keeper, Nim’s Island, Zombieland, and many others. She’s also made appearances on TV as well. Most recently, she’s been cast as one of the main characters in the Fox series Scream Queens.
