8 Teen Movie Stars We Thought Would Be Huge But Weren’t

From 1999 until 2003 there was a slew of teen movies that sought to subvert the 1980s brat pack genre. There were horror movies, love stories, comedies and dramas that centered around the lives of teenagers navigating high school. It was a brief moment in our adolescence but it left its mark. Films like 10 Things I Hate About You, She’s All That and Cruel Intentions introduced us to promising young actors that seemed set for super stardom. In retrospect what seemed like iconic films only turned out to be stepping stones for the likes of Reese Witherspoon, Tobey McGuire, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Heath Ledger, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Julia Stiles, for others it was the final frontier. We were pretty sure these teen stars who were everywhere would be massive stars today but they’re not . . . ¬†and it’s kind of a bummer.
