#4 Soleil Moon Frye

After Brewster, she acted in a few bit parts here and there, marrying and having two kids. She was also well known for having breast reduction surgery at the age of 16, going from a 36DD to a 34C cup (her nickname previously had been Punky Boobster).
#3 Tatiana Ali
Ashley Banks, the youngest kid in the fictional Banks family in the Will Smith vehicle The Fresh Prince of Bell Aire, was the kind of child star that you knew would grow up to be beautiful.
Tatiana started a successful music career after Fresh Prince ended, reaching Gold with her album "Kiss the Sky." Tatiana Ali is now traveling the United States as a spokesperson for Barack Obama's 2008 Presidential Campaign. Ali is heading voter registration drives at college campuses
