    Who's your favorite big screen child actor of all time?

    From the past or present, there are so many to choose from, especially the classics. My pick would have to be Shirley Temple.

    Macaulay Culkin was brilliant in the "Home alone" movies. I could watch the first one again and again. It is hilarious.

    I have a list I like but right now it comes to mind Arnold from different strokes. I agree with the previous comment the guy from home alone was awesome I watch it all the time and is as funny as the first time.

    Culkin is certainly a personal favorite but I have to say Dakota Fanning has rarely disappointed me.  I haven't see a movie yet where she was bad.  Man On Fire is one of my all-time favorites.  I don't think any child actor had a better career than her, save maybe for Shirley Temple.

    Hmmmm! I guess that would have to be Hayley Mills in "Parent Trap." She was such a brat, and did things I'd never dare try!

    You can't go wrong with Macaulay Culkin but I also liked Haley Joel Osment  who played Forest Gump's son, he also was the child in "The Sixth Sense", "Pay It Forward", and "Secondhand Lions". Dakota Fanning was another stand out child actor and who can forget little Drew Barrymore's performance in "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial"

    Synchronicity!  I loved Shirley Temple movies when I was young and only about ten minutes ago I mentioned it to my husband because he is watching a black and white movie. I'm sure the young ones reading this might not know who she is.

    Drew Barrymore (E.T.), what a cute kid!

    If I had to choose another, it'd definitely be the child from Stuart Little- Jonathan Lipnicki.
