These are always the types of lists where it feels like we should all feel bad or sad for the actors on this list because they moved from child roles into adult roles, like really adult roles. We're not about to try that here. It's difficult enough for a child actor to move into the world of adult roles without us limiting what type of roles they can or should be in. Every time an actress who we saw as a child shows a little skin in their adult lives, people tend to be a bit more shocked than if it were a new adult actress. Is this because we can't disassociate the adult from the child? Well, if that's the case, let's make sure you're able to before we move on, otherwise this is going to get awkward for you.

The truth is, everyone grows up. Even actors. As time trudges on, we get older and, as we get older, our bodies change. One of the benefits of growing up is that we get to choose what we do with our bodies. The actresses on this list used to be child actors, now they're not. They all made the decision as adults to show off a lot more of their bodies than they used to. Plenty of actresses have done this in their careers, but not all of them have made it onto this list.

There are two types of actresses that are not here. First, we've eliminated the actresses that have stayed in the public eye throughout their careers and have done a lot of nude and racy roles, like Christina Ricci. Second, we've not included actresses who didn't get a lot of exposure as child actresses, say like Scarlett Johansson. We've tried to stick to well-known child actresses, whose racier adult roles might not be all that recognizable. There's no Lindsay Lohan on this list either, so all you LiLo fans can shove off. Here are 15 former child actresses who got into racy films.

11 Drew Barrymore

The great and beautiful Drew Barrymore started acting at a very young age. Really, she was a star by seven-years old. She then went through a difficult time in her life in her early teens, but she got herself on track by 17, which feels odd to write. The girl had partied more by 15 than most people do in their lives. The weird thing was she was doing some risqué films at that tender (under)age of 17 as well. She first did Poison Ivy and then Guncrazy (which was a great role for her). At 18, she posed for playboy, performed in about six different nude roles and flashed David Letterman on the air for his birthday.

1 Gaby Hoffmann

Gaby Hoffman played the little girl who fell off the bleachers and choked on a friggin' hot dog in Field of Dreams in 1989. She was also in Sleepless in Seattle and Uncle Buck as a child. Decades later, Hoffman appeared in the extremely weird Crystal Fairy & the Magical Cactus and shed her clothes. The whole thing was strange, but it seemed to give her confidence in her body and her eyebrows. Now, she basically gets nude in everything she does. It's still strange. Maybe it isn't. Who knows? Hoffman doesn’t have what you would traditionally call a beautiful body, but her lack of shame is attractive, so that's got to count for something.
