“I never took the fame too seriously. It was a great period in my life, but it doesn’t define me. When I think back on the time, I look at it with a wink. I focus on the good moments I had, not that I was on a lot of magazine covers.”

–Teen heartthrob Jonathan Taylor Thomas looks back on his crazy child star lifestyle, and explains why he stepped away from the limelight for nearly a decade to pursue his education: “I wanted to go to school, to travel and have a bit of a break.” After studying at Harvard, Columbia, and St. Andrews, JTT recently returned to acting in the worst possible way, appearing on his TV dad Tim Allen’s misogynist groaner of a sitcom, “Last Man Standing,” but how could I stay mad at that adorable little face?

Well, he’s an adult now and has apparently been at the gym for the last few years. He shot a boatload of shirtless weightlifting and wrestling photos (the latter of which have vaguely homoerotic undertones or maybe that’s just wrestling in general) — for a magazine I assume? — and they make me feel weird. I don’t like it when children I find adorable grow up to be “sexy” adults. It confuses me! A bunch more photos, if you can handle it, at the link. [ONTD]

Quick Pic: It Really Sucks To Be A Washed-Up Child Actor!
