Then + Now: Haley Joel Osment from ‘The Sixth Sense’

Haley Joel Osment The Sixth Sense
Buena Vista Pictures

Back in 1999, Haley Joel Osment was a cute kid who saw some scary ghosts in ‘The Sixth Sense,’ but where did that cute little kid go when he grew up?


Haley Joel Osment was an adorable kid actor in ‘The Sixth Sense,’ ‘Pay It Forward,’ ‘Bogus’ and ‘Forrest Gump.’ He also had parts on TV shows like ‘The Jeff Foxworthy Show,’ ‘Murphy Brown,’ and ‘Ally McBeal.’

In 2001, he starred in the Steven Spielberg film ‘A.I.: Artificial Intelligence,’ but then he mostly disappeared … or maybe we just stopped paying attention because he was growing up?

Osment, now 25, has kept busy since 2001, doing a lot of voice work — he’s the voice of lead character Sora in the ‘Kingdom Hearts’ video game series, and he’s lent his pipes to everything from ‘The Jungle Book 2′ to ‘The Country Bears.’

We didn’t see much of him on-screen until 2011, and he’s now getting back to live-acting with parts in indie films like ‘Beware the Dunderheads’ and ‘Sassy Pants.’

He graduated from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts in 2010 and spends his free time playing golf, something he’s loved doing since childhood. We’ll probably start seeing a lot more of him again pretty soon.
