What Happened To Your Favorite Stars of the 80s!

It’s been over thirty years since they first shone on our screens, let’s take a moment to remember the Preppie Pin Ups (who were secretly worshipped by both the freaks and the geeks). Some of these actresses are still around, but with radically different images. Think Diane Lane, Demi Moore, Michelle Pfeiffer, Jennifer Connelly, Julia Roberts, Jennifer Jason Leigh and much more.

No-one can deny that the 80s brought us some of the most iconic movies of all time. From the music to the fashion to the risqué story lines, many 80s movie stars had that much of a big break, they’re still making it big in Hollywood today.

So, if you want to find out where the stars of Top Gun, The Breakfast Club, Footloose and many others are in 2017, check out this gallery of acting legends…
