She Basically Disappeared After The '90s, So What Has Leelee Sobieski Been Up To Since?

- Page 1

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. Even though we all expected her to be around for a long time, she seems to have vanished from the public eye. Where did she go?

Her real name is actually Liliane Rudabet Floria Elsvea Sobieski, so she shortened it to Leelee because that is much easier to fit on a movie poster. She was discovered when she was really young, and was cast in the TV movie called Reunion.


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.

But where is she now?

Tim Allen Talks About Potential 'Home Improvement' Reunion And We Aren't Sure How To Feel

Home Improvement was one of the greatest shows of the 90s. Watching Tim 'the Tool Man' Taylor awkwardly and outrageously fail at making things while continuing to make a show about how good he is at making things was just absolutely great. . We watched Tim fall off of roofs, we watched Tim electrocute himself, we watched Tim explode various projects, but all the while he managed to not die and not get fired. I think a lot us, myself included, thought of him as our TV dad. He reminded me so much of my dad, the only difference was my
