10 Awesome 90’s Actors That Were Ruined By The Noughties

We toast those 90’s legends, who for one reason or another, struggled to thrive in post-Millennium cinemas.

It must be difficult being an actor or an actress. You put yourself out there time and time again, only for people who€™ve done nothing more than sit on their arses with a handful of popcorn to judge you without mercy. Not only are they judged for their performances, but for their choice of role, their look, their off-screen presence. It€™s not a lifestyle many could handle, so even the shittiest actor really deserves at least a modicum of respect. But we€™re a fickle bunch, and we get bored easily. I imagine the pressure of keeping us satisfied is quite immense. It can€™t be easy to go back out there year after year, decade after decade, and still keep that initial spark that got you plucked from obscurity - often an actor who excelled in one decade may fail entirely in the next, and mercilessly, we€™ll usually just forget about them and move on. I decided to take a look back at the decade in which I grew up, in which I developed my love of cinema: the 1990€™s. The age of denim, girl and boy bands and white-boy dreadlocks, the 90€™s wasn€™t exactly the classiest of decades. But there were some actors that worked throughout the 90€™s who committed some fantastic performances to the annals of cinema history €“ only to be chewed up and spat out by the noughties, sometimes never to be seen again. It€™s unfortunate when it happens, but it happens more often than you might think. So, we toast those 90€™s legends, who for one reason or another, struggled to thrive in post-Millennium cinemas.
