13 Celebrities You Probably Haven’t Thought About in a While

The glitz! The glamour! The paparazzi chases! This is what we picture when we think of Tinseltown. But what about the stars who are less…sparkly these days? Those who are more recluse than red carpet? Here’s our top 10 list of celebrities we haven’t thought about in a while because, well, they’ve been more ‘Where’s Waldo?’ than ‘Where’s the after-party?’

1. Freddie Prinze Jr.

Freddie Prinze Jr., the 90’s teen heartthrob who appeared in all the movies your older sister wouldn’t let you watch. These days, he’s more likely to be mistaken for the hipster at the local organic market than a Hollywood actor.

2. Lara Flynn Boyle

Remember Lara Flynn Boyle? From “Twin Peaks” to “Men in Black II,” she was everywhere. Now? Let’s just say she’s been a little less ‘peaks’ and a little more valleys.

3. Rick Moranis

Who you gonna call? Not Rick Moranis, it seems. This comedy legend gave us classics like “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.” Now, he seems to be playing a game of “Honey, I Shrunk My Public Profile.”

4. Tia and Tamera Mowry

Sister, Sister! Or should we say, “Sisters, where are you?” Tia and Tamera Mowry were the twin sensation of the ’90s, but recently they’ve been more off-screen than on.

5. Emilio Estevez

Remember the ‘Brat Pack’? Emilio Estevez was their poster boy, but now he’s more like the guy directing the poster photoshoot. And people wonder why they can’t recognize him!

6. Alicia Silverstone

Alicia Silverstone taught us all to be “Clueless” in the ’90s. Now, we’re just clueless about what she’s been up to. Anybody got a Bat-Signal for her?

7. Jonathan Taylor Thomas

JTT, the boy who was on every pre-teen’s wall in the ’90s. Now, he’s more likely to be on a “Do you remember these child stars?” Buzzfeed quiz.

8. Macaulay Culkin

“Home Alone” star, Macaulay Culkin, used to be “Kevin McCallister,” the boy everyone recognized. Nowadays, he’s more “Hey, wasn’t he…?”

9. Jessica Biel

Remember Jessica Biel? She made us all feel seven kinds of emotions in “7th Heaven.” Nowadays, we’re just feeling one: curious. Where are you, Jess?

10. Hayden Christensen

Once upon a time, Hayden Christensen was chosen as the Chosen One in the Star Wars saga. Now, it seems he’s chosen a path away from the limelight.

11. Shannon Elizabeth

“American Pie” alum Shannon Elizabeth made quite the impression in the late ’90s. But lately, she’s been as hard to find as a decent sequel to that franchise.

12. Mike Myers

He once asked if we wanted to “shag now, or shag later” as Austin Powers, but these days, Mike Myers is more incognito than International Man of Mystery.

13. Thora Birch

Thora Birch had us spellbound in “Hocus Pocus” and moved in “American Beauty,” but these days, it’s like she’s cast a disappearing act.

These celebs may be lying low, but let’s face it, we still love them for the memories, the laughs, and yes, even the cringe-worthy fashion trends they inspired. Here’s to you, Hollywood’s Most Wanted…by casting directors, of course!
