Lava Girl Is All Grown Up And She’s HOTTER Than Ever.

It's always fun to remember our favorite child stars -- especially when time passes and they're all grown up. Some child stars are hardly recognizable when they become adults, and in the case of this child star, growing up has transformed her into a whole new person.

Her name is Taylor Dooley, and you might recognize her as one of the lead characters in The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl. Now, Dooley has come into her own and is barely recognizable -- and it's not just because she's ditched the pink hair.
