Many believe that talent comes with decades of practice. Although this may be true in some cases, there are still some very young actors who, despite their age, display undeniable raw abilities. Take Tatum O'Neal, who won an Oscar for her performance of Paper Moon, making her the youngest winner of an Academy Award in any category. Her portrayal of Addie Loggins captured the hearts of critics and audiences alike, and she was only 10 years old.

Young newcomers are taking Hollywood by storm, becoming household names before they're even legally allowed to rent a car. With this in mind, PrettyFamous, a Graphiq site, ranked the most famous actors under 25 years.

For each actor, PrettyFamous developed an "Actor Score" to determine his or her relative degree of fame. This score is based on the weighted average of each star's Wikipedia page views over the past 30 days, the number of award nominations received and the total number of IMDb ratings for the actor's projects. The list is ranked by Actor Score and ties are awarded to the younger actor.
