'Now and Then' Turns 20 -- See Where the All-Star Cast is Today (PHOTOS)

Jenny Erikson | Oct 20, 2015 Movies

Not to make you feel old or anything, but the '90s cult classic Now and Then just turned 20 years old. The coming-of-age tale included two actresses for each of four friends, who gathered together to reminisce about their friendship as children.

It's been two decades since we met Samantha, Roberta, Teeny, and Chrissy, and we love them still. Take a look at how all the stars of the film have changed over the last 20 years.

    Gaby Hoffmann was a staple of the child-star world in the early '90s. Perhaps you saw her in Sleepless in Seattle, Freaky Friday, Uncle Buck, or Field of Dreams? (Okay, those last two were 1989 ... but they launched her career, so we're counting them.)

    After a break from acting in the 2000s, Hoffmann has been back at it in recent years, with roles in Girls and the Oscar-nominated Wild with Reese Witherspoon.

    Moore was also the narrator of the film, and much of it was told from her perspective. She was already a household name, with credits including Ghost, A Few Good Men, and Indecent Proposal.

    Dozens of films and two divorces later (from Bruce Willis and Ashton Kutcher), Demi is still loving life and looking gorgeous.

     

  • Christina Ricci as Young Roberta

    Ricci went from goth as Wednesday in The Addams Family to tomboy Roberta, who was raised by her widowed father in a family of boys. But she was the only one who got to kiss Devon Sawa. Swoon.

    This former child star not only continued on in acting, but she also got married in 2013, and welcomed a baby in 2014. She recently appeared in the mini series The Lizzie Borden Chronicles, and is currently filming Mother's Day with Susan Sarandon and Sharon Stone.

  • Rosie O'Donnell as Roberta

    O'Donnell had already worked with child star Gaby Hoffmann in Sleepless in Seattle, and we loved her in A League of Their Own.

    Rosie had a six-year run on her talk show The Rosie O'Donnell Show, and then cohosted The View until leaving earlier this year.

    Thora Birch was a relative newcomer to the movie scene, but she did play the role of Dani in another cult classic, Hocus Pocus, in 1993.

    Perhaps you saw her a few years after Now and Then in a very different role in American Beauty? Birch continues to act, and has nabbed a lead role on the upcoming Colony on USA.

     

  • Melanie Griffith as Teeny

    Griffith played the adult character of Teeny, the precocious adolescent who wanted nothing more than to grow up to be a star. Spoiler alert -- she did.

    She seems to have passed the torch for sexy roles to her daughter Dakota Johnson, who played Ana Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey. She has not seen the BDSM-inspired flick, in case you were wondering.

  • Rita Wilson as Chrissy

    Just as prim and proper as always, the adult Chrissy was played with humorous perfection by Wilson. She was also in Sleepless in Seattle with Hoffmann and O'Donnell (as well as her hubby Tom Hanks).

    Wilson announced last spring that she had breast cancer, and had undergone a double mastectomy and reconstruction. Her professional life has continued to flourish, with roles on Girls and The Good Wife.

     

  • Ashleigh Aston Moore as Young Chrissy

    This adorable girl was the goody-two-shoes of her friends, keeping them in line when their shenanigans got out of control. Aston Moore quit acting within a few years of the movie's release, and tragically lost her life in 2007 at the age of 26.
