The sweet girl next door in Saved by the Bell became the bad girl inside the Walsh house on Beverly Hills 90210, but those days of acting are far behind Tiffani Thiessen. She married actor Brady Smith in 2005 and has two kids. She appeared in a few films in the last decade, but she now stars in her own cooking show, Dinner at Tiffani’s, as herself since 2015
As far as the cast of Baywatch now, it’s safe to say Pamela Anderson is the only one who hasn’t lost her looks or made a bad music album. But despite being the hottest parts of Baywatch, Home Improvement and VIP, she has been through a series of tough life events involving sex tape scandal, hepatitis C and a divorce. At 49, she’s back in a real role for the drama short, Connected, about a middle-aging woman in the modern world. She will appear in the new Baywatch film as herself.
Sweet little Topanga (Danielle Fishel) stayed with Boy Meets World until 2000, around the time she went to prom with Lance Bass of N’Sync. Since then, she starred in a couple low-rate National Lampoon’s Dorm Daze films and hosted The Dish on The Style Network up until 2011. It was then she went back to school, fell in love, got engaged (then divorced in 2016), but by then she was already reprising her role as Topanga on the spinoff Girl Meets World where she and Ben Savage (Cory Matthews) play the parents. Everything comes back around, even for the girl who we thought had the weirdest name (until we moved to Los Angeles).
She once was the nip-blasting bimbo on Married…With Children, but all of those cast members have come a long way since, especially Christina Applegate. Her roles on the Anchorman films (2004, 2013) has been a highlight in comedy, opposite Will Ferrell. Applegate was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008, announcing she was cancer free just two weeks later. She’s been a recurring voice in the Alvin and the Chipmunks animations and went on to take up the mantle of the Griswold family, opposite Ed Helms, in 2015’s Vacation. At 45, she’s in her second marriage (Martyn LeNoble) with her first child. This year, she starred in the hit female comedy, Bad Moms.
If you’re wondering where this cast member of “Friends” is now, look no further. Jennifer Aniston has become a film actress, spokeswoman and wife all since her days at Central Perk. A tribute to Rachel Green’s hard nipples might make you miss her in the ‘90s, but she is one of the hottest actresses now in her 40s. Just wait until she continues her sexy streak of hot roles with her latest holiday film, Office Christmas Party.
She was the hot and curvy host of MTV’s Singled Out when we were hitting puberty, and now she’s the hot and curvy mom we still talk about to our friends. Jenny McCarthy, who is apparently never too old to star as a hot Carl’s Jr. girl (2013) has also been on the cover of Playboy (2012), but more interestingly, she’s been writing a number of books on parenting over the past decade. So what if she’s received multiple Razzie Awards for her acting, she’s still hot, has a hot younger sister Playmate (Amy McCarthy) and a hilarious cousin (Melissa McCarthy).
In 2005, she began dating Jim Carrey for a few years, then married Donnie Wahlberg in 2014. In 2013, she took one of the hosting spots on The View for a year after leaving The Jenny McCarthy Show, then switched to hosting the Sirius series Dirty, Sex, Funny With Jenny McCarthy in 2016, along with her work on reality shows Donnie loves Jenny and The Wahlburgers.
Jennifer Love Hewitt
One-fifth of the Party of Five crew is the highly successful, more gorgeous than ever, Jennifer Love Hewitt, who left the I Know What You Did Last Summer films, her music career and her role as Sarah Merrin in the ‘90s. She went on to become the star of supernatural Ghost Whisperer in 2005 for five seasons before switching over to a seductive role in 2012’s The Client List, whose pilot earned her a Golden Globe nom.
Named one of the sexiest women on TV, she was also the number-one reader choice cover for Maxim with her 1999 and 2009 covers. Her 2010 book, The Day I Shot Cupid, was a New York Times Bestseller. In 2013, she married her Client List costar with whom she has two children.
The former 7th Heaven star went from the prude Camden family home in the ’90s to ruling to roost as a Timberlake. Though she was a big TV actress in the ‘90s, Jessica Biel (err, Timberlake) has been primarily in films the past decade. Her latest films include Hitchcock and the total crap reboot Total Recall in 2012, as well as a handful of movies in the past two years, including Bleeding Heart.
She dated Chris Evans from 2001 to 2006, then went over to rock J.T.’s world in 2007. They were married in 2012 and have one child, Silas.
Sarah Michelle Gellar
Our favorite badass Buffy and world-renowned girl-on-girl kiss scene, Sarah Michelle Gellar hasn’t had quite the movie career as her I Know What You Did… costars, but she still looks great heading into her 40s. She appeared in back-to-back Grudge films and Scooby-Doo adventures from 2002 to 2006, then pulled a handful of voiceover roles, started producing and help start up a Cruel Intentions TV pilot. Now at 39, she has her own food craft startup for kids and is married to her scary movie co-star, Freddie Prinze in Los Angeles with their two kids.

You don’t hear much out her these days, but the girl who made the word “whatever” a cultural phenomenon has actually been pretty busy in the industry. A few unsold pilots, a lot of lesser-known movies and TV shows and a Scooby-Doo sequel and she’s managed to stay in the game while dating the same guy nearly 20 years and having a child. Silverstone may have been the ditzy rich bitch in the ‘90s, but she’s the smart sexy PETA activist now (in real life).
