In 2017, audiences were almost twice as likely to see male characters as female characters and the overall number of movies with women playing protagonists significantly declined. However, if we take a look at the past, we will find lots of amazing examples of female characters who really managed to conquer our hearts with their charm and beauty.
Bright Side found out what your favorite actresses of the 2000s are doing at the present moment.
10. Kate Hudson, Almost Famous
Most of Kate’s films since Almost Famous have been romantic comedies or some variations of this genre. Among her recent works are Bride Wars, The Killer Inside Me, and Something Borrowed. Hudson also appeared in supporting roles in such recent films as Mother’s Day and Deepwater Horizon.
In addition to her acting career, Kate established her own production company, Hail Mary Productions. Hudson also promotes a healthy lifestyle — she launched a fitness brand, Fabletics, in 2013 and released a book, Pretty Happy: Healthy Ways to Love Your Body, in 2016.
9. Lindsay Lohan, The Parent Trap
After The Parent Trap, one of the brightest young stars of the 2000s took part in such successful films as Herbie: Fully Loaded and Georgia Rule. But later, Lindsay was involved in several serious scandalsthat almost ruined her career, so she spent the past few years laying low and traveling in an attempt to reinvent herself.
Lohan settled in Dubai where she found inner peace and began working on her own projects at the same time. Now she’s creating her own beauty brand and a clothing line. She also runs a nightclubin Athens, Greece.
However, Lohan hasn’t completely turned her back on acting. After a brief hiatus, she signed on for the second season of Sick Note, a British sitcom starring Rupert Grint. She’ll also appear in Frame, an all-female movie from Saudi Arabia.
