There are some celebrities who started their careers at a very young age, and a new report lists the richest child stars of all time.
Among the 43 child stars listed in the Go Banking Rates report, two of them are celebrities who are from New Jersey. Both are still very successful celebrities as adults as well. Can you name the two stars?
We'll give you a few hints. One of the celebrities was born in Ocean County, and the other Garden State child star was once called Bergen County home. The Ocean County star got her start modeling and in commercials. Her first (uncredited) acting role was when she was 6 years old.
As for our Bergen County star, he appeared on Broadway in Les Miserables, Annie Get Your Gun and Beauty & The Beast before he joined the band. He wasn't born in New Jersey. Any guesses on either of these stars?
Before you get a headache trying to figure it out, lets tell you the who the two richest child stars in New Jersey are, and just how much they are worth.
That Ocean County girl was born in Point Pleasant. That uncredited movie role was in Woody Allen's "New York Stories". Of course, we're talking about Kirsten Dunst, who is worth $25 million.
As for the kid from Bergen County, he grew up in Wyckoff, and thet band the joined after the Broadway acting was a little group called the Jonas Brothers. Nick Jonas is worth a coll $50 million.
