By Andrew Alpin, 27 May 2017

Sometimes we tend to forget about those child stars that fascinated us in movies we loved as kids. Take spy skids for instance. Spy kids came out almost 16 years ago and even extended into a sequel in 3D but the main attraction was the child star Alexa Vega who played everyone’s favorite hero Carmen Cortez. But if that little girl is still etched in your memory then your jaws are going to drop looking at her now because Alexa Vega has turned into a big bombshell.

1 Alexa Vega isn’t the little girl of Spy Kids anymore

Alexa Vega isn’t so little anymore. Even Antonio Banderas who played her father wouldn’t recognize her if he walked past her today. She’s hot and she’s a multitalented singer and actress who even does her own stunts. Alexa lives in Miami Florida and this is what she looked like in her Spy Kids days. After seeing this you won’t believe what Alexa Vega looks like now.

For those who haven’t seen Spy Kids, It was a great movie about two married spies forced to reveal their occupation to their kids. When the couple is kidnapped by the kid’s show host Fegan Floop, Carmen Cortez (Alexa Vega) and her movie brother gear up to save their parents. Carmen and her sibling Juni are then given spy training. Vega was even nominated for a Young Artist award for her performance in the film.

8 A huge hit as Carmen Cortez but a bigger hit at 16

As reports say, When she was 16, she asked Spy Kids director Robert Rodriguez for a car and a range rover too so that she could drive her fur sisters around. Rodriguez actually gave her one, can you beat that? After all it was her fame moment as she stood out among all the characters as Carmen Cortez. This is her at 24.

9 Vega has successfully broken out of the cute girl image

According to Vega, if she wasn’t an actress she would love to be a neonatal nurse which is something she would definitely give up Hollywood for. All said and done, Vega has successfully broken out of cute girl Cortez image something tough to do for child stars who get stereo typed in that particular image. Alexa on the other hand has successfully managed to establish a career as an adult.

10 Vega does all of her own stunts too

As Carmen Cortez, Vega was projected as the gutsy action loving girl with her death defying ability and athletic prowess. Vega still has that going strong as she loves doing her own stunts too.

11 She has also overcome a lot of personal struggles

Vega fought bulimia and pulled through. She has even done several stunts to raise money against child molestation and woman abuse such as jumping out of a plane. You could say the star is also a hero in real life too.

Today Alexa Vega is worth $12.5 million but can easily live off her royalties from the Spy kids movies and after all she is also married to a movie producer so it’s doubtful she’ll ever be in any financial trouble.
