Years after Taran Noah Smith appeared on "Home Improvement," his looks have changed, and he is now a man in his mid-thirties.

Age might be just a number, but it doesn't stop people from aging in their appearance and looking different than they did when they were a kid.

The former child actor, Taran Noah Smith, bears testament to this, as he is no longer the bobbly child he was with a full fringe covering his face, but a grown man.

Smith outgrew his childish chubbiness to become a tall, lanky man of 35. Rather than his full hair, he now sports a low haircut, and his once clear face now bears a mustache and a small-sized goatee.

The former child star also has a love for the outdoors, something he picked up after his childhood fame in Hollywood. In one of his Facebook posts, he sat in-between the cut-out part of a tree that looked like an ear. His hands and feet had dirt over them, and he seemed happy and carefree.

With the end of "Home Improvement," Smith bade farewell to Hollywood, choosing a life away from the spotlight

Smith rose to fame for his role as "Mark Taylor" in the sitcom "Home Improvement." He joined the cast as a 7-year-old in '91 and maintained the part until he turned 16 in '99 when the sitcom ended.

While starring on the TV show, the San Francisco native had minor roles on television and in movies, and appeared in "The Little Bigfoot: The Journey Home" in '98, and "7th Heaven."

With the end of "Home Improvement," Smith bade farewell to Hollywood, choosing a life away from the spotlight. He enrolled at the University of Southern California but dropped out afterward.

At 17, in 2001, the then-teenager got married to 32-year-old, Heidi Van Pelt. The marriage lasted for six years and produced a son, Nolan Eric Smith.

At 18, the former actor came into $1.5 million from his trust fund but soon depleted it through several unsuccessful ventures, including a vegan restaurant, Playfood, which he opened in California.

Smith also had a fallout with his parents, David Smith, and Candy Bannici, over mismanagement of the money he earned while appearing on "Home Improvement."

The couple and their son cleared things up and reunited as one big happy family. Now, Smith is older, hopefully, wiser, and still chasing his dreams far from Hollywood.
