We all remember Phoebe Cates and her famous topless bikini scene from Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Unfortunately for her fans, Phoebe gave up acting back in 1994 in order to focus more on her family. She only returned to the big screen one time for her role in The Anniversary Party in 2001.
Cates opened her own store in New York in 2005, and she’s been living quietly ever since.
Tara Reid was that one “hot blonde” from some great comedies like 1999’s American Pie and 2002’s Van Wilder.
The 42-year old has stayed pretty active when it comes to her acting career, but there hasn’t been anything close to as successful as her earlier films. Nowadays her acting credits are found in TV movies like Trailer Park Shark and Sharknado 5: Global Swarming. Maybe she has a thing for sharks?
Freddie Prinze Jr.
Freddie Prinze Jr. was a teen heartthrob and king of teen flicks in the 90’s when he starred in movies like I Know What You Did Last Summer and She’s All That, but things have changed since then.
Prinze left the movie industry after several of his animated films ended up flopping. He now enjoys his time with his family and wife Sarah Michele Gellar. He actually released a cookbook in 2015!
Fame doesn’t last forever, and these celebrities had to learn the hard way… Where are they now?
