Remember Pugsley from Addams Family? This is what Jimmy Workman looks like now… and you won’t believe who his sister is | The Sun

HE was the star of two huge hit films, stealing the limelight alongside Christina Ricci as the mischievous and miserable children in The Addams Family and Addam's Family Values.

But Jimmy workman, who was only 11 when he starred in the first film, and only appeared in front of the camera a few more times after his outing as part of this ghoulish clan.

The Addams Family came out in 1991 and was a wickedly funny family film based on the successful 1960's TV show.

Jimmy played Pugsley, the oldest child of Morticia and Gomez Adams (played by Angelica Houston and Raul Julia) who has a curious habit of collecting road signs.

His murderous sister Wednesday Addams was played by Christina Ricci who is still acting to this day, but Jimmy decided to leave the profession after a few more roles, including starring with Jack Nicholson in As Good As It Gets.

In the sequel, Addams Family Values, the two children are sent off to a summer camp where their penchant for wearing black and trying to hurt other children does not go down well and the end up burning the place down!

Jimmy, now 42, still lives in Hollywood and appears to have moved to the other side of the camera working behind the scenes.

Living in Los Angeles with his young family, it seems he's shunned the limelight and has been living a pretty normal life, until you find out who his sister is.

On Instagram Jimmy was pictured on the Teamsters Local 399 page alongside co-workers in 2016. In America, Teamsters are Unions representing workers.

Originally they were groups of drivers, and this particular group seem to drive trucks for the film industry.

Despite choosing to step off screen, Jimmy still has close connections to showbiz through his now more famous sister, Ariel Winter.

Ariel played geeky Alex Dunphy in hit US sitcom Modern Family from 2009 to 2020, but hit the headlines due to a massive a fall out with her family, including Jimmy.

Back in October 2012, Ariel's sister Shanelle Workman alleged their mother, Chrisoula, had been physically and emotionally abusive toward Ariel and filed to become her legal guardian.

Court papers revealed Ariel had sought a restraining order against her mother, alleging she had been subjected to “ongoing physical abuse and emotional abuse for an extended period of time".

Chrisoula denied the allegations, claiming Ariel, who was 14 at the time, was unhappy with her for breaking up her relationship with her 18-year-old boyfriend.

Ariel was removed from her mother's custody, sought emancipation, and no longer has a relationship with her.

In 2013 Jimmy got involved, claiming sister Shanelle was also a bad influence on young Ariel, and attempted to take over as her legal guardian but his attempt was unsuccessful.

Now Ariel is now 24 and not in need of a legal guardian, it seems Jimmy has returned to normal life now that the bizarre custody battle is over.

Ariel is still estranged from her mother who encouraged her to act in the first place, but said the fact she hasn't seen her for five years is 'for the best' in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
