Leelee Sobieski was one of the most popular stars of the 90s and early 2000s. She seemed to have a part in basically all our favorite movies, and had such a promising career ahead of her.

She was only 11-years-old when it was made, but it was the catalyst that started her bright career. She was in the Tim Allen comedy Jungle 2 Jungle, the hugely successful Deep Impact, and the critically acclaimed film A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries, all before she was 16.

Sobieski acted along A-list stars like Drew Barrymore in the rom-com Never Been Kissed, and Tom Cruise in Eyes Wide Shut. She earned nominations for prestigious awards and her star seemed to be on the rise.
