Even the nerdiest man in the universe would love to imagine himself as a famous celebrity. I’m sure there would be many among us who would dream their entire life of being a famous superstar. Then there are those with unique talents who gained fame at a very early age. It’s pretty obvious that they gained such fame by their own charismatic talent and hard work. Here are a few “young stars” that have made their way to the peak of triumph.
You don’t need to be a music freak to know of or hear the name of Justin Bieber or JB. This young talent performed his way onto the road of fame at only 5 years of age and ended up being the richest youngster of 2012.

Ashley Greene wanted to start her career as a fashion model but her 5’5” height did not permit her. But now she prefers acting more than modeling.

Kristen Stewart started her career at an early age of 9 years when in 1999 she starred in a short role.

Her upcoming film is “Snow White and the Huntsman” where she will play the role of Snow White.
Another young star worth mentioning is Selena Gomez .She turns 20 this July. Selena started her acting career in 2002 and got her big break in a Disney Channel TV series ‘Wizard of Waverly Palace’.
