Hollywood's Emancipated Stars

5 of 18

Michelle Williams

Michelle Williams, then 15, legally emancipated herself from her parents, stock trader Larry Richard Williams and homemaker Carla Ingrid, in order to better pursue an acting career and not have to worry about child labor work laws. Her decision to do so caused a rift in the family, but Williams proved her parents wrong by landing a gig on "Dawson's Creek" shortly after. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo by Jason Kempin/Getty Images)
