    I don't know what's up with the Brooke Shields nude scenes. That's messed up. But, with the possible exception of Blue Lagoon these are serious works. The kids gave great acting performances of well-written material, and I don't think this video presents strong evidence that they were unable to handle the situation. In all the cases but Blue Lagoon I'm fine with it.

    Dakota Fanning is one hell of an actress. She also publicly stated that “it’s only a movie and she was acting “ pretty damn smart at that age. Smarter than adults getting their panties in an uproar. Obviously the movies she did that bothered so called adults were no problem with her parents. Linda Blair obviously is OK. She managed to have a relationship with Rick Springfield that wasn’t in the public eye. That for sure would have set the media on fire. Media is to blame for so many famous peoples lives that go wrong. Have you all forgotten Princess Diana. I believe if playing a part screws up your head, you already had issues.

    I personally never had a problem with using that sort of language when I was a kid. because I was something of a borderline troublemaker when I was little. one time, this kid started a fire on my lawn and I shouted "Will you stop lighting shit up and go somewhere else?!". I was 9 at the time.

    Ok so everyone knows Hollywood is filled with pedophiles but still support movies like these. If Hollywood cares so much about sexually abused children then with all the billions they earn make a program and donate half their billions then. Or stop abusing the young Hollywood stars. Why not make a movie about saving the child rather than just making the fictional characters have a grown man take them and then have scenes with sexual tension. Anybody ever stop to think the reason the kids can cry or act so well is because they are going through it in real life? Do you know what kind of jobs require psych evaluations!? So I guess a kid should be allowed to serve in war too or shoot a gun? Kill people? Emotional damage is just as life threatening as physical damage. Being on a set or stage whatever you want to call it doesn’t make it ok. Did the stars lose their talent as they aged? No I don’t think so. So why all of a sudden aren’t they cast in roles anymore. Because Hollywood is sick and they love love love children. Why not bring awareness using a grown woman who looks young? They have excuses for everything.

    Sometimes I feel adults don't give children/teenagers enough credit. I'm not saying "They know everything! Let them do whatever they want! Sex and drugs for everyone! No age of consent!" I just believe people can be condescending to underage, maybe without even knowing they're doing it.
    There are countless underage/young actors and actresses in movies that include rape, sex, abuse, war, drugs, gangs, incest, pregnancy, addiction, suicide, self-harm, etc! There are underage actors in very serious, heart-breaking, at times brutal, roles.
    IMO, a few factors contributing to whether a role is "appropriate" is the maturity of that actor, their ability to understand the subject and express clearly how it makes them feel, and what they will be exposed to, both on and off set.
    I wish I could be 100% certain that all underage actors had a guardian who put their mental and physical health above anything else, guaranteeing protection from predatory practices.
    This was all my opinion. And to remind people that may twist my words- I am not advocating giving children/teenagers complete free rein. They still need rules, structure, and guidance. Teenagers are not mature enough to make all decisions in their own.
    I just think children and teenagers are stronger and smarter than some adults give them credit for, and many are able to handle a lot of confusing and/or scary situations with guidance and appropriate explanation.
    PS- I do include 18yo as "young actors" because I believe 18yo is not an appropriate age for "adulthood", based on maturity and physical development, but that's just me. I obviously expect more from an 18yo than a 16yo, and not all teenagers are the same, but this is an opinion that I made a while ago. It will probably change, especially since I have my own conflicting thoughts of it, but at the moment, I am including 18yo in the age brackets for questioning roles.
    Sorry about this rant. It's rambles, I know, but I just started writing and didn't stop. Even now. Gosh... Ok. Have a wonderful morning/afternoon/evening, where ever you are 😊
