Child Stars Photo Portfolio

The child stars who shaped Gen X are all grown up—and they're all here in our exclusive photo portfolio.

Age: 31 \\ Best known as: Jonathan Bower on Who’s the Boss?

Despite a goody-goody’s best intentions, nothing went right for Jonathan Bower (except, perhaps, that he got to live with Alyssa Milano). This made him irrestistible to everyone, it seems, but Pintauro. “I hated him. I mean, he was a big dork,” he says. “One episode he got to be cool, and then learned his lesson—turns out he was hanging with the ‘wrong crowd.’” Pintauro left Hollywood for Stanford, came out in 1997—long before Doogie Howser did—and is now back in show business, casting TV pilots.

“We’re getting dirtier and dirtier. Old Hollywood was all about the glamour. The eighties was a little bit about trash. Now it’s expected. All the younger kids have to do these days is show their crotches, and they’re set.”
