Calista Flockhart – Then
Calista Kay Flockhart first gained public attention for the role many people still remember her best for: Ally McBeal.
Flockhart’s appearance on Ally McBeal was only her third television performance, but it made her an instant star as soon as the show’s first season aired in 1997.
The show made Flockhart, and her character, into a feminist icon, and garnered her a Golden Globe Award in 1998.
In 1999, Flockhart appeared alongside Kevin Kline, Michelle Pfeiffer, Rupert Everett, Stanley Tucci and Christian Bale, among others, in Michael Hoffman’s film adaptation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and would go on to play many additional roles in the years to come.
Calista Flockhart – Now
After Ally McBeal ended in 2002, Flockhart continued to act in both television and film, making her mark in shows like Brothers & Sisters, where she also played the leading role between 2006 and 2011, this time as Kitty Walker.
In 2010, Flockhart married another Hollywood star, who just happens to be a few years her senior; Harrison Ford, and the two are still in a loving marriage today.
Flockhart’s latest television role was portraying the media mogul, Cat Grant, in The CW’s Supergirl.
Gwen Stefani – Then
Gwen Stefani started her musical career in 1986, when she was just 17 years old.
Her older brother, Eric, invited her to join a ska band he was forming, named No Doubt.
The rest, more or less, is history.
No Doubt soon grew out of their Ska roots and turned to more pop-y tunes, and their hit song, “Don’t Speak,” helped launch them to international stardom.
Gwen Stefani – Now
In 2004, Gwen Stefani left No Doubt and set out on a solo career – which was also incredibly successful. She released hit after hit, including “Hollaback Girl,” “Used To Love You,” “Rich Girl,” “The Sweet Escape,” and many, many more. Her first solo album, Love. Angel. Music. Baby. sold over 309,000 copies on the first week of its released, and reached multi-platinum status in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and Canada.
In 2014, Stefani became a judge on the hit music reality show, The Voice, and she continues to release music and tour today.
