Hey, So Haley Joel Osment Is Still Hanging Around And He's Having A Time

- Page 1

We all remember Haley Joel Osment, right? He was the kid from Sixth Sense, Pay It Forward, and Secondhand Lions.

Our hearts were totally ripped out when he died in Pay It Forward, and it's the first time I remember ugly crying during a film.

At 12 years old, Osment was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Performance by an Actor In A Supporting Role for Sixth Sense, where he uttered the iconic line "I see dead people."

It seemed like Osmet was on track to become one of the best actors of his generation. He was growing up in front our eyes.

Hollywood Take

Then, the inevitable happened, and the child star was no longer a child. In 2006, Osment was charged with a DUI at 18 years old, something he took full responsibility for.

The Smoking Gun

"With regard to that incident, whatever attention has been given to it, I brought it upon myself," he said at the time. "So I would definitely not say that my childhood in this business caused that in any way but the response to it is definitely something that is affected by my place in the business. So for me it was a good lesson. You can't blame the press for giving attention to incidents like that. It was an extremely important learning experience for me to try and stay in check and do the right things, like I always should."

After his arrest, it seemed like Osment left the limelight for a little bit. He gave his voice to some video games, but not a whole lot more. Eventually he started to act again, but it never garnered a ton of attention.

So what is Haley Joel Osment up to now, besides being known as "Emily Osment from Hannah Montana's brother?"

It seemed like he was in every movie, playing the hunky yet funny star of all the greatest action adventures and comedies from our younger years. But suddenly, his career seemed to get a little bit out of control. The quality of the movies wasn't up to snuff. There were no more hits like George of the Jungle or The Mummy, instead we

BlockbusterToday's teenagers will never get to experience the thrill of getting to rent a blockbuster movie, or even having their trusty blockbuster membership card in their wallets at all times.

Curse Of 'The Mummy' - How The Classic Film Nearly Wiped Out Its Cast

If any movie proves that "they just don't make 'em like they used to," it's The Mummy.That's the The Mummy - as in the box office smash of 1999, to avoid any confusion with certain other films bearing the same name.The mystical adventure had action, laughs, and special effects that look amazing to this day - and they should, because they cost $150,000 per shot.While The Mummy gave audiences chills, making the movie was just as frightening for its cast. From the very beginning of the shoot, to the movie's premiere, it seems like the film's
