Remember the adorable “Curly Sue”? Well, she’s all grown up now and gorgeous as ever! Here’s what she looks like now:


Alisan Porter might have gained fame for her role as little Curly Sue in 1991, but she started acting long before then. She first appeared in “Pee-wee’s Playhouse” at the age of 7 before landing a recurring role on “Chicken Soup” in 1989.

Speaking of her child star past on “Oprah: Where Are They Now?”, Porter, now 33, said: “Life as a child star was normal life for me. I never really saw myself as anything special or different, other than the fact that I worked at a young age.”

Despite the huge success she received from “Curly Sue,” Porter decided to leave Hollywood before she entered adulthood. The former child star now lives in Los Angeles where she’s working on her music career. She married Brian Autenrieth in 2012 and together they have two kids: Mason, 3, and Aria, 1.



In the video above, Porter talks about growing up as a child star, her struggle to overcome her addiction, and journey into motherhood.
