Back to Where Are They Now: The Cast of 'Footloose'
Sarah Jessica Parker
Sarah Jessica Parker: As a young Broadway and TV actress best known for co-starring in the short-lived junior-high sitcom 'Square Pegs,' Sarah Jessica Parker got her first big break in movies as 'Footloose's fun-loving Rusty. (She and Chris Penn, six months her junior, were the only ones among the movie's four teenage leads who were actually still teenagers.) Still, her film career didn't really take off until her flashy comic supporting turn in 1991's 'L.A. Story.' She starred in romantic comedies throughout the '90s (including 'Honeymoon in Vegas' and 'Miami Rhapsody'), only to gain even greater fame on TV as the star of 'Sex and the City,' which ran for six years and then made a hugely successful transition into a movie franchise in 2008. Today at 46, Parker (who married fellow 1980s teen star Matthew Broderick in 1997) is as popular as ever, whether as a style icon and pitchwoman or as a Broadway and film actress. Her characters of late have been variations on 'Sex's' Carrie Bradshaw, including her starring role in September 2011's 'I Don't Know How She Does It.'
