Whatever Happened To These Actresses?

Whatever happened to Robin Wright Penn? Whatever happened to Robin Wright Penn?

There are a few actresses who became iconic in their own way - then seemed to disappear. What happened to these beauties, and where are they today? Did they give up acting altogether?


You fell in love with their manner, their style, their sexy walk or smile. Then they went ‘poof’! and were rarely heard from again. Where are the actresses who turned heads and won hearts? Are they simply turned housewives, now, raising a bunch of kids, or have their careers just stalled?

Robin Wright Penn - The Princess Bride

She glowed as Buttercup in the ‘80s cult classic The Princess Bride, and again as Jenny in the ‘90s film Forrest Gump. Then she seemed to fade out of the picture, turning down the role of Maid Marian in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and the role of Abby in The Firm (with Tom Cruise) due to her pregnancies.

Robin’s not really gone, however - just not appearing in anything dudes are likely to go see; she starred in Moll Flanders in 1996, and co-starred with her then husband Sean Penn in She’s So Lovely the following year. Since then it’s been bit parts in lesser known films, as she worked her way through a rocky divorce from Sean and cared for her two children, Dylan Frances and Hopper Jack. She’s slated to appear as Erika in Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

Sarah Michelle Gellar - Buffy

She went from slaying vampires to acting in horror flicks and now you’re lucky to see her looking back at you on late night made-for-TV programs. What happened to Gellar, and why isn’t she a bigger star? The answer - you can only milk MTV and the Teen Choice Awards so long before you’re being cast as a used up hooker with a little black book.

Sarah made the same mistake a lot of actresses make - she came straight off her long running TV series and dove into second rate horror with I Know What You Did Last Summer, Scream 2, The Grudge and The Grudge 2 - and she added the double no-no when she signed on for Scooby Doo and Scooby Doo 2. There’s just no coming back from that.

Mila Kunis - That ‘70s Show

You know you watched That ‘70’s Show for the girls, Jackie in particular. (Well, maybe Donna too - especially after she stopped wearing a bra…) What happened to Mila after her 200 episodes as the spoiled little rich girl were over? She started dating Macaulay Culkin, that’s what. Hard to take a girl seriously when she’s hanging off the arm of that.

Seriously, though, Mila hasn’t completely disappeared - she’s just been hiding behind an animated face. Kunis is actually the voice of Meg Griffin on Family Guy! If you want a real treat, however, catch her music videos - she starred in Aerosmith’s Jaded, and you get to see a little more of Mila than you ever did on ‘70’s show. And she just surfaced again as Lily in Black Swan.

Hopefully these actresses will get more screen time in the future!
