Each decade is known for its set of A-list stars who dominate Hollywood. The '90s were no exception. There were so many popular celebrities who graced our screens and magazine covers...it's almost hard to keep track of them all.
Some of the biggest stars from back then have had continued success and are still just as famous today. Others have fallen off the grid a bit and living a more low-key life. Here's a look at where some of the most popular stars of the '90s are today.
THEN: Tom Cruise
Tom Cruise was at the peak of his career in the '90s, starring in big movies like Interview with the Vampire, Jerry Maguire, Eyes Wide Shut, and, of course, Mission: Impossible. He snagged a few awards (like some Golden Globes), and his personal life didn't seem bad either: he was married to Nicole Kidman, and they had two children together.
NOW: Tom Cruise
Today, it sometimes feels like Cruise is known more for his association with Scientology than his acting career. Although he hasn't starred in any huge movies recently, he did reprise his role as Ethan Hunt in the sixth film in his franchise, Mission: Impossible - Fallout.
THEN: Jim Carrey
In the early '90s, Jim Carrey started off as a stand-up comedian, and his acting career took off in the mid-90s. With films like Dumb and Dumber, Ace Ventura, and The Mask, as well as many others, Carrey was known as one of the funniest actors of the decade.
NOW: Jim Carrey
Carrey has stepped back a bit from his comedic roles and explores other areas these days. He appeared in two documentaries, has wrote a book, and produces. He recently appeared in the family-friendly Sonic the Hedgehog movie as Robotnik. Carrey is also open about his struggle with depression.
THEN: Stacey Dash
Stacey Dash was catapulted into fame in the '90s when she starred in the film Clueless as Dionne, Cher's best friend. The actress did some television work as well.
NOW: Stacey Dash
Dash hasn't done much acting recently. In 2014, she was hired by Fox News for cultural analysis and commentary. Dash has been open about her political opinions and stance as a Republican.
THEN: Brendan Fraser
Brendan Fraser's career peaked in the '90s with roles in movies like George of the Jungle, The Mummy, Blast from the Past, and Airheads. His career continued into the 2000s, most notably with a role in the Oscar-winning film Crash in 2004.
NOW: Brendan Fraser
Although still working in Hollywood, Fraser's career is no longer what it once was. He has had a few small roles on TV shows like The Affair and Trust.
THEN: Sharon Stone
With roles in movies like Total Recall, Basic Instinct, Casino, and The Specialist, it's not dramatic to say that Sharon Stone was one of the biggest actresses of the '90s. Stone starred and appeared in a very long list of films from the decade, many of which are still highly regarded today.
NOW: Sharon Stone
Stone's career may have cooled down a slight bit since the '90s, but she's still an extremely popular actress landing killer roles. Most recently, Stone has appeared in movies like The Disaster Artist and Life on the Line. Her role in HBO's Mosaic has been her biggest as of late.
THEN: Will Smith
Will Smith was one of the biggest stars out there during the late '80s and throughout the '90s. From his television role in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air to his movie career (Men In Black, anyone?), to his hip-hop music legacy, Smith did it all.
NOW: Will Smith
Smith is one of the few A-list '90s stars who have managed to maintain a consistently successful career. Even though he's mostly left his music career behind, Smith is still a huge actor with roles in big films like Aladdin and Suicide Squad. Smith also married Jada Pinkett-Smith, and their two children, Willow and Jaden, are as famous as their parents.
THEN: Whoopi Goldberg
Although she was big in the '80s too, Whoopi Goldberg's career really took off in the '90s with roles in movies like Ghost, Sister Act, Eddie, and How Stella Got Her Groove Back, and her talk show, The Whoopi Goldberg Show. Goldberg also made history as the first black woman to win the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for Ghost.
NOW: Whoopi Goldberg
Goldberg still has an extremely successful career today as an actress and co-host of The View. She has appeared in a few TV shows like Glee and The Middle, and signed on to reprise her role as Guinan during the second season of Star Trek: Picard.
THEN: Billy Crystal
Billy Crystal's big '90s roles included City Slickers, Deconstructing Harry, and Analyze This. He also hosted the Academy Awards several times throughout the decade.
NOW: Billy Crystal
Crystal doesn't appear in as many films as he once did, and lately has been voicing characters more often than not (he's the voice behind Mike Wazowski in Monsters, Inc.). He still pops up as an award show host every once in a while.
THEN: Neve Campbell
Neve Campbell's career was at an all-time high in the '90s, and it started off with her role as Julia Salinger in Party of Five. From there, she had notably successful roles in films like The Craft and Scream.
NOW: Neve Campbell
Campbell's career has been a bit more quiet in the last several years. She has appeared in a few shows, like Manhattan and House of Cards, in addition to starring in some independent films.
THEN: Wesley Snipes
Weasley Snipes enjoyed a ton of success in the '90s with roles in films like Jungle Fever, King of New York, New Jack City, Sugar Hill, and so many more. His role in Blade cemented his A-list status and earned him a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
NOW: Wesley Snipes
Despite his huge career wins in the '90s, Snipes has largely disappeared from Hollywood. However, Snipes may still make a comeback - his role in Dolemite Is My Name in 2019 scored some great reviews.
