What happened to Cindy Lou Who from The Grinch? Taylor Momsen is all grown up – The Sun

FROM her total confidence in the Grinch's goodness to her adorable pining after the festive season, there's no denying little Cindy Lou Who was the real hero of the 2000 cult crimbo movie.

While we all remember her as the cute seven-year-old who sang Where Are You Christmas?, actress Taylor Momsen, who played Cindy, has come a long way since her acting days.

What happened to Cindy Lou Who from The Grinch?

American-actress-turned-musician Taylor, 28, was just seven when she played Cindy Lou Who in the 2000 hit movie, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.

Following the success of the film, Taylor went on to star in Spy Kids 2: The Island Of Lost Dreams as well as earning the title role in 2002 Hansel And Gretel.

Fans will also recognize the actress from her role as Jenny "Little J" Humphrey in the teen drama Gossip Girl.

However, Taylor left the hit television series after five years in 2011 to focus on her flourishing music career with the punk band The Pretty Reckless, whom she has been with since 2009.

And let's just say, you'd never guess this popular punk star once played sweet and innocent Cindy Lou Who.

With the band's most famous songs including You Make Me Wanna Die and Going to Hell, Taylor has swapped her adorable braided do for peroxide blonde tresses and a trademark statement smokey eye.

Taylor told Interview Magazine in 2010 that becoming a rock star was "always the plan" and she wrote her "first song at age 5".

Since they first formed in 2009, Taylor's band The Pretty Reckless has released four studio albums and has had four number one hits on the US rock charts.

Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000) will be airing on December 23, 2021 during Freeform’s 25 Days of Christmas.

What is Taylor's net worth?

Thanks to Taylor's success, she has been able to amass an estimated net worth of $4million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

This number comes from her acting career as well as from the success of her band.

Is she in the Gossip Girl reboot?

After parting ways with viewers nine years ago, Gossip Girl rebooted in 2021.

Despite its return, fans might not recognize the new cast members as many of them were not on the original show.

One of the original cast members to make an appearance was Zuzanna Szadkowski, who plays the famous Dorota.

At this time it remains unclear if Taylor will come out of retirement for the show's reboot.

The first season of the Gossip Girl reboot is now streaming on HBOMax with 12 hour-long episodes.
