Died or went to check-in? The phrase that has become a meme is often used to refer to famous Brazilian actors who have recently been taken away from the mainstream media. In Hollywood, there is no such phrase, but the situation is repeating itself. Is very.
It’s common to wonder where are the names that were very successful in the ’80s and’ 90s (and even the 2000s). And we are not talking about people who had a sudden glow, but about names that marked world cinema and which today do not seem to exist.
Unfortunately, we can see that this is a more common situation when we are talking about actresses. It’s sad, but the reality is that Hollywood doesn’t show much remorse for forgetting actresses as they get older. There are of course exceptions, like Meryl Streep, and other names who start their careers after getting out of hand, like Nicole Kidman and Michelle Pfeiffer. And it was just thinking of the duo that CinePOP decided to remember 10 actresses that we would love to see, once again, prominently on the big screen.

Harry and Sally, Tune of Love, City of Angels, [email protected] For you… Meg Ryan’s reign in romantic comedies has spanned more than two decades. The actress was synonymous with box office success. Beautiful, intelligent, fun and with a captivating personality, Ryan has made a lot of people fall in love with her. In the early 2000s, trying to escape a little from the stigmatization of the “girlfriend of America”, she directed the sensual drama Em Carne Viva, a failure of the public and the critics. After that the opportunities only dwindled and Hollywood was unwilling to keep its name prominent. At the moment his name is linked to an NBC series produced by Lorne Michaels, but there is nothing entirely certain about the project. His last job dates back to 2015, when he starred and directed the war drama Ithaca.
Demi Moore is a contemporary of Ryan, but her glory days may have been shorter than the first. However, when it shone, it shone brightly. In the early 90s, he appeared in films such as Ghost – Across Life, Honor Matter, Indecent Proposal, and Sexual Harassment. Then he stumbled across Striptease, but quickly recovered from Harry’s deconstruction and to the brink of honor. Over time, their roles have diminished more and more. The prejudices with age were also present in the last decade of the work of the actress. Not only did she stop receiving invitations to important roles, but she began to appear in the media only as Ashton Kutcher’s much older girlfriend. The market seems to have viewed Moore as a mere sex symbol, rejecting him over time. But the actress’s cinematography brings dramatic dramatic roles. She deserves more. His last work dates back to 2017, in the Empire series.
Demi’s’ rival ‘in the’ 90s, Sharon Stone has also been left out by Hollywood, at least when it comes to the roles of the protagonists. Once again, we are dealing with an actress affected by the femme fatale brand, which does not have many chances in other projects. She came to be remembered as the actress who refused Titanic to make Sphere or for her bad villainous job in Catwoman, but one also cannot forget the memorable performances in works such as Casino, The Avenger of the Future and , of course, Wild Instinct. He recently made a cameo appearance on Artist of Disaster and starred in the HBO Mosaic series.
Andie MacDowell is perhaps best known in Brazil for having been the face of L’Oréal’s campaigns for more than three decades. Which in itself shows that he was not that present in theaters. Star of films like Sex, Lies and Video, Short Cuts, Spell of Time and Four Weddings and A Funeral, Andie has seen his time on the stage cut short with each project. At the same time, she began to take fewer jobs. Putting the two together, it turned out that the actress was leaving the scene of big Hollywood projects. His last theatrical work in Brazil was Magic Mike XXL, starting in 2015. At the moment, he is preparing to star in the inspired series of Four Weddings and a Funeral.
Known for her work on Mad About You and Best Is Impossible (which won her the Oscar for Best Actress), Helen Hunt is another actress left behind by Hollywood over time. She has also worked in works such as Twister, Castaway, What Women Like and Sessions. The latter, from 2012, was perhaps his most recent work to gain critical and public recognition, even earning him a new Oscar nomination. Recently he’s been devoting more and more time to directing, most notably starring in the This is Us series. There’s been a lot of talk about the possibility of a Mad About You revival, which would most likely raise the name of the movie. actress. But you can’t count on it. For everything she’s done, Helen deserves more opportunities.
A lot of people can dispute Carrie-Anne Moss’ presence on this list, after all she has remained prominent with the Marvel series on Netflix, especially Jessica Jones. But that’s all she’s been doing for three years. That’s very little for a name that has already shown a lot of talent and disposition in works like Amnesia and the Matrix trilogy. In 2019, the actress will be seen in the Norwegian crime series Wisting and in the third season of Jessica Jones. But it’s time to take another shot at the big movies!
In the case of Mira Sorvino, it is possible to clearly identify the reason for her disappearance: Harvey Weinstein. The actress was harassed by the famous producer and, when she did not give in to the advances of the same, she began to be boycotted and to have her name burned in the industry. An Oscar winner for her incredible work on Mighty Aphrodite, the actress was named a future Hollywood star, but she gradually faded from big projects. She never stopped working, but always in small and little expected films. Even recently, after finding out about the cases involving Harvey, Mira struggles to come up with big plans. His last major production was an appearance in four episodes of the ninth season of Modern Family. But she deserves more!
Icon of the 70s and 80s, with memorable works such as Cactus Flower, Crazy Escape, Shampoo and A Jump to Happiness, Goldie Hawn has lost nearly 15 years. Between 2002 and 2017, the only thing he did was participate as a voice actor in the animated series Phineas and Ferb, in 2013. In 2017, he repeated a comeback with the comedy Viagem das Loucas, with Amy Schumer, but the film was a public failure. and critical. Last year she was featured in Christmas Chronicles, alongside her husband Kurt Russell. And that’s very little for someone your size. Goldie Hawn is one of the big names in the history of comedy and already in the 90s, with films like Death Dies and Everyone Says I Love You, has shown that age is no obstacle to good job. And it must not be different now, 20 years later.
Kate Hudson is the most recent name on the list and appears right after her mother, Goldie Hawn. The actress, who turns 40 in 2019, is still too young to simply disappear from the screens. Kate gained notoriety after her fine work in Almost Famous (2000), which earned her an Oscar nomination. After that, he becomes one of the main symbols of romantic comedies of the first decade of the 21st century. She was successful with How to Lose a Man in 10 Days, Alex & Emma, A Treasure Love, Brides at War, and My Best Friend’s Groom. With a refreshing career, he appeared on Glee between 2012 and 2013. After that, he practically disappeared from big projects. And even in small films, he begins to receive smaller and smaller roles.
