Gary Coleman Named Top Kid Star

Faded actor GARY COLEMAN has beat out MACAULAY CULKIN and DREW BARRYMORE to top VH1's list of 100 GREATEST KID STARS.

Coleman played ARNOLD on the classic US sitcom DIFF'RENT STROKES, but he failed to retain his immense popularity when the show ended in 1986.

The 37-year-old actor, who was one of numerous hopefuls who ran unsuccessfully for California Governor against ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER in 2003, was recently seen in advertisements for a cash loan company.

LeANN RIMES, NEW EDITION and RICKY MARTIN's former group MENUDO also made it onto the list.

The top 10 is as follows:

1. GARY COLEMAN

2. MACAULAY CULKIN

3. MARY-KATE + ASHLEY OLSEN

4. JODIE FOSTER

5. DREW BARRYMORE

6. EMMANUEL LEWIS

7. RON HOWARD

8. COREY FELDMAN

9. MAUREEN McCORMICK

10. DANNY BONADUCE.
