10. Elizabeth Shue
She is a very good actress staring in great movies such as Adventures in babysitting, Back to the future 2 and The Karate kid. Her career has not died unlike many teen stars.

9. Corey Haim
Haim is in some of the best movies from the 80's The Lost Boys, License to drive and Lucas are just a few of the great movies he has stared in. Like most 80's child stars drugs got in the way of his acting and bad choices have ended his career.

8. Winona Ryder
Winona has made the best movie choices out of all the teen stars from the 80's she is a great talent and will always be a holly wood A list.

7. Corey Feldman
You cant mention Corey Haim with out talking about Felman. He was a good actor i do think he was better then Haim i did feel Feldman had more to him. Its a shame that like a lot of child stars he feel into drugs which effected his acting roles.

6. Matthew Broderick
A great actor then and a great actor now. I know he has made some bad choices but every actor does.

5. Anthony Michael Hall
If you needed a geek in a movie Hall was your man he is a great actor just watch the breakfast club he can play the funny guy but at the same time can be very serious.

4. Molly Ringwald
You cant talk about 80's movies with out the mention of her just a shame you dont see her much anymore.

3. Fred Savage
I think that Fred is under rated he is a great actor and in some of the best movies from the 80's. Dont forget about the wonder years i loved that show.

2. Michael J Fox
I just thought he was so cool when i was kid. Back to the future say no more.

1. River Phoenix
He died way to young if he was alive today i think he would have many oscars

Not a bad list, but I probably would have put John Cusack in place of the two Corey's or Fred Savage.
