To know that time passes, there is nothing better than observing its mark on the faces that made us fall in love two decades ago. And if that allows us to know the whereabouts of those stars that drove us crazy, so much the better.
Thus, to match the heat of summer, we have put together a collection of womens who set the 90s on fire with their images of sex symbols to compare them with their presents. From Sharon Stone to Cameron Diaz, from Pamela Anderson to Uma Thurman, the selection is diverse enough to ensure that if you lived through that time and weren’t in love with any of them, you’re lying like a knave. In the event that you prefer boys, don’t worry: we also have them on file.
She’s gone bad in Wild Games, she’s swept the galaxy in Starship Troopers, she’s been a ‘Bond girl’ in The World Is Never Enough… and now, through a brief and stormy marriage to Charlie Sheen , she’s become the most likeable contestant on Real Housewives of Beverly. Hills.
After wowing the crowd at a football match when the cameras took her on the big screen, Anderson did the same with the whole world thanks to those slow cameras from Baywatch. After some unfortunate forays into the cinema (remember Barb-Wire? neither do we) and that marriage to the musician Tommy Lee (Motley Crüe) that caused so much talk, she now participates in reality shows like Dancing with the Stars and continues to work as an activist animal rights and other humanitarian causes.
If there is one image that defines the cinema of the 90s, it could well be that of Uma as Mia Wallace in Pulp Fiction. And, once again with Quentin Tarantino, the Bostonian did the same with the turn-of-the-century films in Kill Bill. Since then, and except for her two works with Lars Von Trier (Nymphomaniac and Jack’s House), her career has maintained a more modest profile than she deserves.
Perhaps this actress’s career on the big screen hasn’t been anything to write home about (her role in Terminator 2 was anecdotal, for example), but her role as Tiffany in Unhappily Ever After kept many glued to the screen. After the turn of the century, she had a second run of popularity thanks to the Las Vegas series.
Part of the ’80s brat pack,Demi Moore kicked off the decade at hand by rising to the ultimate in sex symbolism thanks to his roles in Ghost, A Few Good Men, An Indecent Proposal and above all the infamous Striptease. It may be that, except for specific milestones such as Margin Call, her current career is not something to write home about, but you would like to get along with your ex as well as she does with Bruce Willis.
Already known as a model, the Ukrainian began to shine with Movida del 76 and later raised her sex appeal beyond the stars in The Fifth Element. Far from taking her away from the cameras, her marriage to director Paul WS Anderson (they are already on their third child) has established her as an action star with works as hilarious as the Resident Evil saga and, soon, Monster Hunter.
With The Mask, My Best Friend’s Wedding and, above all, Something Happens with Mary, Cameron reminded us that sexy and funny are not antagonistic, but often go together. Despite having delivered such enjoyable jobs as Bad Teacher, his career in front of the camera became more and more discreet, and after Annie (2014) he decided to retire from cinema. We miss her.
Tiffani Amber Thiessen
Although she did not have to endure a public lynching like the one suffered by Elizabeth Berkley for Showgirls (you shoot a masterpiece, and that’s how Hollywood pays you), the Kelly Kapowski of Saved by the Bell has had few stellar moments in cinema after her collaboration with Woody Allen in A Made in Hollywood Ending (2002). In the next return of her best-known series, she will be present in only one episode: something is something…
How a talented but unlucky actress, nicknamed ‘Charito Piedra’ by the Spanish crew of Blood and Sand (1989), revolutionized Hollywood at the hands of Paul Verhoeven, first in Total Recall and then turning the interrogation of Basic Instinct into the scene slowest in the history of home video. Despite a Stakhanovite pace of work and some great performances (Casino, Fast and Deadly), Sharon’s subsequent career hasn’t done those two great moments justice.
As for being an icon of white trash, it’s better to be big, this Angelina actress must have thought before giving it her all as Kelly Bundy in Married with Children. During the 21st century, her talent for comedy has been revalidated with her appearances in El reporter and the two installments of Bad Mothers, among others.
