Amber Heard recently made it to the news with her highly-publicized divorce from actor Johnny Depp. However, it would be wrong to forget her acting chops because of it. You might have seen her in “Never Back Down,” “Drive Angry,” “3 Days To Kill,” “Pineapple Express,” and “Friday Night Lights.”
All of these titles were major 2000s hits! There is no doubt that she will appear in more projects in the future.
What's more 00s than Renée Zellweger in "Bridget Jones’s Diary”? Nothing is. Not to mention 2002's "Chicago." Zellweger was also one of the highest-paid actresses in 2008, but sadly, right after that, it seemed that her career momentum slowed down and she was starring in flop after flop.
Before we ruffle any feathers, there’s no doubt that Renée Zellweger is an amazing actress. Still, her box office bombs, combined with some questionable plastic surgery that left her looking completely different, have resulted in her kind of disappearing from the public eye.
Laura was born in Watchung, New Jersey in 1980. She's the daughter of a high school teacher mother and a surgeon father. As a teen, she did some modeling and had several small acting roles. Her most notable role was in "That 70s Show,” which started in 1998 and ended in 2006. The show made Laura into a 00s star.
Her career didn't end there, in fact, it only grew bigger and better with her role in "Orange Is the New Black." She also had a recurring role on “How I Met Your Mother” as Ted's two-timing college girlfriend.
Born in New Haven, Connecticut, Lauren has amassed a serious following due to her films and TV shows. Ambrose started off in theater in New York before getting supporting roles on the long-running TV series "Law & Order."
The actress starred in the 1998 teen classic "Can’t Hardly Wait." From 2001 to 2005, she starred in the hit HBO series "Six Feet Under" playing the role of Claire Fisher. She also has twangy music talent and is part of a dixie jazz band called "Lauren Ambrose and the Leisure Class."
This redhead is both a talented actress and an author. Born in Detroit in 1975 as Judith Therese Evans, she started off her career in small roles in big films like the 2000s "What Women Want."
She's one of these actresses who are mostly cast to play quirky characters. She's been cast as a supporting actor in countless projects through the decade and we suspect there's a chance she was one of the busiest actresses of that time.
