'80s A-Listers: Where Are They Now?
From leg warmers to Jordache jeans, the ‘80s were a decade that left its mark on fashion, entertainment and pop culture. Aside from the oh-so-memorable style, the decade also introduced us to classics like The Breakfast Club, Back to the Future and Dirty Dancing. We were glued to our TVs watching Luke and Laura get married on General Hospital, singing along to Video Killed The Radio Star when it premiered as the first music video on MTV, and supporting to huge charity concerts in the original Live Aid. Whether you were a Material Girl, Jessie's Girl, or a Super Freak, there's no question that some of the biggest hits from the '80s have lasting power (even if they're mainly as karaoke classics).
The '80s catapulted some of our current favorite stars from unknown status to household names. These A-list stars topped the Billboard charts, racked up awards and graced the screen. Some child stars of the '80s have enjoyed fruitful acting careers, while others struggled with fame as they grew up in the Hollywood spotlight. Then there are those popular '80s actors and actresses who made the move behind the camera, taking on successful roles directing and producing. Thanks to the popularity of reality TV shows, some of our favorite stars are making their mark again on Dancing with the Stars, Celebrity Apprentice and Worst Cooks in America.
While you still see and hear from some of these Hollywood sweethearts today, others may have fallen off your radar. If you're missing some of your favorite stars, a reboot of your favorite shows might not be far behind. Here’s a glimpse at what some of the most popular ‘80s celebs are working on today.
