After making us all fall in love with her in The Karate Kid and Adventures in Babysitting, Elisabeth Shue continued to be the first crush of basically every boy who grew up in the 80s. Her role in Cocktail solidified her status, and Back to the Future really confirmed what we had already known.
Even though we all remember watching her as kids, how many of you know where she has ended up?
Shue started acting as a teenager, and her role as Ali in The Karate Kid was her big break. It was a huge role for someone who didn't have a whole lot of experience, but Shue managed it with grace and we all were thrilled when Daniel got the girl.
Just a few years later, Shue became the most relatable character in any teen's life: a frustrated babysitter. We all knew what it was like to deal with kids who didn't want a babysitter, and how hard it was to keep them all in check. To be honest, she handled it better than any of us would have in her same situation.
The next year, she got to star alongside one of the biggest stars of the 80s, Tom Cruise, in the movie Cocktail.
And then came the Back to the Future movies. She was in both of the sequels as a replacement to one of the original actresses, but a lot of people liked her better.
