This is sick. This is basically betting against a child's future. We don't feel good about what's about to happen, but sometimes, when you know, you know. You know? Making the transition from being a child actor to an adult actor is the toughest transition in the industry. Even well-established superstars struggle as they move from an adult actor to an elderly actor, but this younger move is even more difficult. These are kids we're talking about. Watching them as children, we become too familiar with them as children. Then, one day, their voices get deeper, the boys have new hair on their faces and the women have sprouted breasts—sounds weird, but just go with it. They're different people altogether. For whatever reason, we expected them to stay the same. They didn't. Sadly, only Gary Coleman could do that.

For those reasons, we've decided to go through and ruin some kid's days. We'll look at some of today's most famous child actors and predict which of these little bastards are going to struggle to find work when they become adults. You can argue these choices all you like, but it won't change the fact that these kids are destined for failure. They're never gonna make it. Remember when your parents said, "you can be anything you want to be when you grow up"? That was true for almost every kid, but not for the ones on this list. Here are 16 current child stars we know will never get acting roles as adults.

1 Ariel Winter

She might be all the rage right now with her racy photoshoots and "leaked" photos, but Ariel Winter is definitively not on the right track. Another Modern Family child star to make our list, she receives the number one spot because there is no way she will have "talent" on her resume for future acting jobs if she keeps up these kinds of Lindsay Lohan-type antics for much longer.

Getting her first notable role in 2009 for season 1 of Modern Family, we've seen her grow up on the show and we've watched her innocent, brainy Alex Dunphy character become something quite different in real life. Only time will tell if Winter finally settles down and starts focusing more on acting, but seeing how she has just turned 18, it's not looking promising.
