Alyssa Milano: Talent helps child stars stay on track
The 40-year-old actress appeared on screens as a preteen in the 1980s sitcom “Who’s The Boss,” and thinks her genuine gift of being an actress has kept her from going off the rails.
She counts “Married With Children’s” Christina Applegate, 41, as another actress who has done well out of starting work early in life.
“I think Christina Applegate and I are the only two who maintained some sort of career path past the shows that launched us,” she confessed.
She thinks that troubled stars like Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes didn’t have much chance of have a healthy career and personal life to begin with.
“I have a great family, and I look at a lot of these kids who struggle in the industry and think they’d have struggled no matter what they did,” she admitted.
