Some actors hit their big break and keep it going for decades, managing to stay active in movies until we're practically sick of them (but not really). Other stars seem to burn brightest during a particular decade, only to either burn out or just step away from things to focus on smaller projects.
One actress that definitely falls into the latter category is Rachel Leigh Cook. For the second half of the 90s and the early 2000s, you pretty much couldn't go to a movie theater without seeing her in some kind of teen comedy or drama, and we absolutely loved her.
Whether it was as a member of The Baby-Sitter's Club, the "ugly duckling" in She's All That, or Josie McCoy, frontwoman for Josie and the Pussycats, Cook was always funny, likeable, and memorable in her movie roles, and we were all pretty sure she'd be in movies forever.
However, once the 2000s were in full swing, she wasn't showing up in theaters as much anymore, much like a lot of other 90s teen stars. Plenty of us thought that she'd stopped acting, but it turns out that's not the case at all.
