3 years ago

Sometimes you turn on the TV and see a movie that you were really fond of when you were a child, with that famous actor, whose name you can’t quite remember. So you run to your computer to find out more information about the movie and the actor.

At Bright Side, we couldn’t help it and scoured the web to find out what our favorite actors from the 2000s look like and do nowadays.

Matt Damon

A modest guy who we know by the films The Departed, Good Will Hunting, and The Bourne Identity continues to act in movies. Soon, a new movie called Stillwater starring Damon is planned for release.

Mark Wahlberg

The leading star of the movies The Departed, The Italian Job, and Transformers has tried himself in many professions: acting, music and producing TV series. Also, Wahlberg established a foundation for the sole purpose of raising and distributing funds to youth service and enrichment programs.

James Marsden

Definitely hot. Saw him first on the pilot episode of the Nanny. Yummy and now looks even more fantastic 😍


The guy who went against his father’s will and drove away in a red BMW to find his happiness in the movie Interstate 60 still has a lot of fans. He will also portray Prince Edward in the sequel of the musical/romantic comedy Disenchanted.

Chris Klein

The sweet guy from American Pie returned to his acting career in The Flash TV series after a break. Currently, he’s mainly involved in TV series, including those on Netflix.

Tobey Maguire

Do you remember Spider-Man’s victory dance? We loved it! Later we found out that Tobey stopped appearing on screen because of his behavior during the production of Spider-Man 3. Currently, the actor works as a producer.

Nathan Fillion

I love this guy. He was hilarious in the two episodes of American Housewife where he played himself. Handsome


For some, he is stubborn Captain Malcolm “Mal” Reynolds from Firefly and its film continuation Serenity, for others he is charming detective Richard Castle. Soon you’ll be able to watch the actor in the new Suicide Squad.

David Boreanaz

The actor who portrayed the charming Angel on the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the tough FBI agent, Seeley Booth, on the TV series Bones, is now involved in more than just acting. He produces movies and TV projects and takes part in TV shows.

Drew Fuller

Even more handsome now. I admit having a crush on him when I watched Charmed even though he is about 10 years younger than me 🤫


One of the witches’ sons from the Charmed TV series continues to act in movies and series. However, the last movie he participated in was released 2 years ago. We hope that the actor will return to his work pretty soon.

Ben Whishaw

It was he who portrayed Jean-Baptiste Grenouille, the creator of the unique perfume that drove town dwellers crazy, who came to see his execution. The actor will soon appear in a new film from the James Bond franchise — No Time to Die.

Zac Efron

He was so handsome. We just need to get used to his new look that's all. Not his fault he needed surgery.


The leading star of High School Musical and Baywatch still takes part in many movie projects and does voice work. Although, his fans prefer to discuss the changes in his looks and his multi-million dollar real estate deals.

Christian Bale

Bale’s career who the viewers can remember by the movies The Prestige, The Dark Knight, and Batman Begins will make a new start in 2022. Christian will play the main villain in Thor: Love and Thunder. He will star alongside Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Chris Pratt, and Natalie Portman.

Colin Farrell

The actor who portrayed Alexander the Great — the conqueror of Asia, will appear in another Batman movie that will be released next year.

Antonio Banderas

The Spanish actor got famous thanks to his part in Zorro. His fans will be happy to see him in the new action movie The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard. He will be chasing the main heroes there, making their lives far from easy.

Dana Ashbrook

Bobby Briggs from the Twin Peaks TV series is not that bully that he used to be 20 years ago. But he hasn’t lost his charm. The actor continues to act in movies and series, and posts photos of his life events on his Instagram, to the delight of his fans.

David Tennant

Doctor Who is 50 years old now. He’s raising 5 children, acts in many cinematic projects, does voice work in animated movies, and produces mini-series.

Russell Crowe

Oh, Russell, I truly hope you can lose at least 50 lbs. You were such a handsome man not that long ago.


The actor who portrayed the gladiator Maximus doesn’t just have a beard now, but also an extensive filmography to show for his many years as an actor. We can’t wait to bear witness to his new success playing the part of Zeus, in Thor: Love and Thunder.

Billy Zane

His hair slipped down his head to his face, making him even more attractive in my eyes 😍 bald with a good beard


Billy Zane, Rose’s fiancé from Titanic, is a really versatile actor. He’s had dozens of different parts in the past, and expects as many in the future. If you want to watch the newest movie with his participation, go for The Believer.

Nicolas Cage

A meme hero and just a great guy, Nicolas actively acts in movies and produces them. If you think that the number of movies with his participation has become dwindled, it’s because he sometimes acts in TV series. But his new movie Willy’s Wonderland can even be watched right now.

Jake Gyllenhaal

The guy with sad eyes who has conquered the hearts of viewers continues to do so, taking part in movies, TV series, and doing voice work. Soon The Guilty, a remake of the same-name Danish movie, starring Jake will be released.

Jared Leto

Almost 20 years have passed since the moment the left photo was taken, but it seems that Jared has grown a mustache to try to look at least one year older. But apart from the fact that the actor doesn’t seem to grow old, he also goes on tour with his rock band Thirty Seconds to Mars. While his work in movies and TV series is scheduled a few years out.
