Then And Now: How Have Your Childhood Crushes Changed Over Time?

We can all agree that the 1990s was an iconic period for fashion, teen films, and music. We had “The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles”; we had “The Secret World of Alex Mack”,… But none of those massive successes would have been possible without some gifted and versatile actresses. However, the question now is: What happened to the hottest girls of our childhood?

While some of them have gone on to become big stars, others have faded into the background and chosen to stay out of the spotlight. In fact, fans’ feelings for their idols haven’t faded even when they have lost track of the celebrities they used to love. With that in mind, it’s time to take a look at this collection of then-and-now pictures of your childhood crushes.

Scroll down to go over some of your favorite ’80s stars from Molly Ringwald to Elisabeth Shue. Did we miss one of your favorites? Let us know in the comment below.
