Saldana is an American actress born to Dominican and Puerto Rican parents and began her film career in “Center Stage”, which came out in 2000. After that role, her way to dominating the decade was short. She was a part of projects such as 2002’s “Crossroads” with Britney Spears, 2003’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” and of course, 2009’s “Avatar.”
Luckily for her, her career has only continued growing since, starring in massive hits like “Star Trek” and of course “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Avengers: Endgame.”
Is there anyone more quintessential 00s teen star than Hilary Duff? The cute Lizzie McGuire, who made her start on the Disney channel, has come a very long way from her childhood acting days. Duff made a small fortune playing Lizzie on Disney and then continued to land roles in TV movies.
If you watched a 00s Rom-Com, she was probably in it! The most notable ones were "Cinderella Story," "The Perfect Man" and "Raise Your Voice." Those who were true fans will also remember her early aughts music career.
After her star role as the rebellious Kat in the 1999 hit film "10 Things I Hate About You" Julia Stiles established herself as a different type of “It Girl”. Everyone was anxious to see what Stiles would do next, and two years later, "Save the Last Dance" came out. Stiles was climbing her way up the A-list celebrity ladder, and then the ladder came crashing down.
This was due to the fact that, apart from a supporting role in the "Bourne" film saga, Julia Stiles acted in a few films that were a complete failure. Like so many other 00s teen actresses, she seems to just have disappeared.
Born in Washington, D.C., this redhead had a real estate agent for a mom and a truck driver for a dad. Raised in Atlanta, Alyson was already appearing in commercials for Oreos at the age of four.
In 1997, she began her role on the hit show "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." Her star status rose even more after appearing in the mega-popular "American Pie" and "How I Met Your Mother." While we all got to know and love her during the early 00s, now she's already an established star.
Can one even begin to talk about the 2000s without mentioning Jenifer Lopez? While she wasn't exclusively an actress, but also a successful musician, her acting career helped cement her as one of the true symbols of the early aughts. Do we even have to remind you of the movies she was in?
2001's "The Wedding Planner, "2004's "Jersey Girl," and 2005's "Monster-In-Law" were all movies we rushed to the cinema to watch, all thanks to Jeniffer. Fortunately for us, she's still an active actress to this day.
