With iconic roles in cult classics like “Silence of the Lambs” and “Taxi Driver,” Jodie was a star from the get-go. While she’s cemented her place in Hollywood, Jodie isn’t just another dumb actress. In fact, she put the brakes on her acting career for a while to attend Yale University.
After college, though, she was back on our screens. Since 2021, Jodie has taken a step back from acting again and is focusing on her personal life. With around 5 decades under her belt and a hefty two Oscars for her roles in “The Silence of the Lambs” and “The Accused,” this break is clearly well-deserved!
Every girl in the late 90s and early 2000s wanted to be Mila Kunis. She was somehow super cute and totally beautiful at the same time, and she repeatedly got to kiss Ashton Kutcher on screen. Well, not much has changed! She’s still gorgeous, and now she’s married to Ashton Kutcher, and the pair have two kids with some very lucky genes.
Mila is still gracing our screens today – and if you can’t see her, you can likely still hear her voice. She’s been voicing Meg on the animated series "Family Guy" for over 20 years. The more you know!
Bethany Joy Lenz
When you watch someone on screen for as long as we watched Bethany Joy Lenz on "One Tree Hill," you can’t help but feel like you kind of grew up with them, right? Just us? Anyway, that’s how we feel. Whether it was the drama or the catchy songs, Bethany was the It Girl for a good while in the early noughties.
Today, she’s not so famous anymore, but she’s released 5 studio albums and still gives the people what they want. Bethany, along with two "OTH" co-stars, started a podcast reliving memories and setting the record straight on everything "OTH."
One of the most recognizable voices in Hollywood, Fran Drescher was the nanny we all wished we had growing up. While Fran was the lead in the comedy series "The Nanny," she was also the mastermind behind the whole show! Yup, you heard that correctly. Drescher and her then-husband, Peter Marc Jacobson, created and produced the show together.
Makes sense when you think about how perfectly she fit the role – it was literally made for her. Fran is still involved in the world of Hollywood both on and off the screen; she was elected president of SAG-AFTRA in 2021. Most recently she created and starred in the series "Happily Divorced."
Kirstie debuted her acting chops on the hit show "Cheers," and she’s been a household name ever since. The sitcom ran over a lengthy 11-year period and somehow managed to score 28 Primetime Emmy Awards. Aside from her acting, Kirstie made headlines for her weight loss journey, as well as her proud display as a Scientologist.
Already by 1995, Alley had received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Alley has since dazzled audiences on "Dancing With The Stars" and took second place. The most recent production she featured in was “Stalked: Saving My Daughter” in 2020. She sadly passed away in 2022 from cancer at the age of 71.
