Though we’re in the present, we are always living for the past. What we’re saying is that we love nostalgia and are constantly looking for ways to reminisce about all the pop culture we ingested growing up. Currently, this involves the 1999 movie Stuart Little, which starred 9-year-old Jonathan Lipnicki in the role of George Little.

Here’s what he looked like then (we cannot get over that smile and those spectacles!):

Oh! Just look at how cute he is in this movie family photo featuring Hugh Laurie, Geena Davis, and (of course) Stuart Little:

Now get ready… Here’s what Jonathan looks like now – 17 years later – at age 25:

He’s grown up SO MUCH, but has turned into a totally beautiful man:

To this day, Jonathan is still acting and has recently worked on movies such as Altitude, Limelight, Andover, and Pitching Tents. However, we’ll always see the 25-year-old as young George Little (or maybe even as Ray Boyd, his character in the movie Jerry Maguire).

Now, can we please get a Stuart Little revival?
