The 90s are known for being some of the best years when it comes to movies and cinematography. I am saying that because there are countless movies which came out in the 90s and are considered as being classics. One cool thing about these movies is that almost every actor who played the main character reached the status of being a movie star. However, as years passed on, their star power faded away and they stopped being relevant. With that being said, let’s check out some 90s movie stars that used to be on everyone’s TV screens before they were left behind.
Andre Keegan used to get important roles in every major 90s movie but his stardom suddenly faded away when people started typecasting him as the “cool guy”.
Tahj Mowry used to be one of the most famous child actors back in the 90s. Sadly, his career didn’t work out too well after he grew up.
Everyone remembers Brendan Fraser from awesome movies such as The Mummy or George of the Jungle, but sadly he wasn’t able to get another important movie role for over a decade now.
The first time we were able to see Sane West was back in the days when Buffy the Vampire Slayer was the most popular TV Show on the air. He did get another major role in “A Walk To Remember” but he didn’t have any other successful roles after that.
Pauly Shore used to be the biggest name in the movie industry when it came to comedy. The dude was on top of the game but his sense of humor started getting boring after a while, which caused his career to come to a sudden end.
Jake Lloyd became one of the most famous child actors when he took on the role of young Anakin Skywalker. But for some unknown reason, Jake decided that fame is not what he wants and never took any major role again.
Even though Kevin Sorbo’s acting career might be over, he will always be remembered as the mighty Hercules.
Daniel Stern was set to become one of the world’s greatest actors, especially since he was nominated for an Oscar back in 1979 for his role in Breaking Away. In addition, his career was also boosted by Home Alone’s popularity but his fame still faded away. Daniel Stern only gets roles in TV Shows these days and we’re probably never going to see him in a blockbuster movie again.
Fairuza Balk used to be pretty famous back in the 90s because of how many awesome movies she has under her belt, such as American History X, Water Boy and The Craft.
Ralph Macchio had the entire world in his palms after finishing the Karate Kid series but he decided to leave acting behind and follow a different career path.
Everyone recognizes Tatyana Ali from playing Ashley Banks in The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
Alicia Silverstone became a huge star after she played Cher in the movie Clueless. However, she wasn’t able to hold onto her star status for too long.
Alexa Vega’s face used to appear on TV every single day in the 90s as a result of how popular the Spy Kids series was.
Kevin Zegers is one of the many teenage actors who peaked during the 90s and couldn’t get a role afterward.
Seeing how Steven Anthony Lawrence (Beans) from the show Even Steven looks today makes me feel old.
Freddie Prinze Jr. was definitely one of the biggest movie stars of the 90s. He was basically the poster boy and every girl loved him.
Mara Wilson had her first breakout movie role when she got the main lead for Danny Devito’s Matilda. Even though the movie was highly successful, Mara dropped her acting career because she wanted to become a writer instead.
Skeet Ulrich played in some of the most iconic movies from the 90s but he left it all behind when he got married to Georgina Cates and moved to live peacefully on a farm.
Matthew Lillard played in a bunch of great movies but his most iconic role is Shaggy from the Scooby Doo movie.
Neve Campbell was fortunate enough to play in classic movies such as Scream and The Craft but she wasn’t able to get any major roles after the 90s ended.
