I haven't, nope. Saw her in "Hollow Man" with Kevin Bacon. She looked good, but older.
Elizabeth Shue

Was on CSI for years. Thew others just got older. Almost no female star gets big movie roles past 40.

Mel Gibson, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz, John Travolta and Hugh Grant.

And Katheryn Heigl on "Suits" is just embarrassing. Suits is the world's greatest showplace for bad acting and incompetent writing. Katy fits right in.

Wood had an underrated but very funny show called "Wilfred"

Hugh Grant was nominated for a Golden Globe in 2016 for Florence Foster Jenkins

Helen Hunt is returning in the Mad About You reboot

Winona Ryder is excellent on Stranger Things

Most of the cast from Beverly Hills 90210. Once they left the show, you haven't really head from any of them.
And this movie was on the other day...  
figgy2989 : 3/18/2019 12:03 pm : link
Had a major crush on her, believe she quit acting to focus on academics, or something like that.

Damn it, your right Greg. How can I forget Tori Spelling's cameo in "Scary Movie" and Priestly's academy award performance in "Calendar Girls".
Someone mentioned Bridget Fonda

what about Nicholas Cage? I haven't seen him in anything recently - although I think he just did some voice over work in the Spiderman movie.

Cage has been everywhere. He was awesome in Kick Ass (2010), he was in Snowden (2016), Mandy (2018 which was awesome) and then a bunch of busts sprinkled in. He also has like 7 or 8 movies in post production.

Jude Law

And the entire cast of Cold Mountain, m.i.a, with the exception of Donald Southerland.

Exception for Phillip Seymour Hoffman, who I loved as an actor. Rest in peace.
Jude Law is in Captain Marvel...

Calendar Girls was a guilty pleasure movie for me growing up. Remember guys, "nothing ever happens if you don't show up."
Yes, Calendar Girl is actually a fun little.movie

I've never heard of either of those movies. The last movie I remember seeing her in was 'What Lies Beneath' with Harrison Ford, a very good & creepy movie.

It was one movie. And, I guess you missed all the Marvel stuff?
I saw 'Black Panther'  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 3/18/2019 8:56 pm : link
& the Maguire/Garfield Spiderman movies, but other than that, I don't think I've seen a Marvel movie. Those Nolan Batman movies weren't Marvel were they?

once they get some age on them, unfairly. Sex sells and 50 y/o women rarely keep that look. It is what they have been complaining about for years.


Maybe. But horrifically bad plastic surgery making them look like freaks doesnít help much. Meg Ryan is unrecognizable. And some women keep working. Depends. Meryl Streep seems to have done ok. Itís not like there arenít any women from 40-60 age group in movies.

She is around my age and yes I do remember her! always thought RG was weird looking when all my friends thought she was SOO hot. She was on Beverly Hills, 90210 on occasion. the late 80s/early 90s were my college years and everyone watched all those shows.

Then, everyone my age was obsessed with FRIENDS. For all the weird nostalgia the 90s gets today amongst the millennial crowd, I kind of hated those days.
