You might remember Eliza Dushku from such instances as being really, really hot in the late '90s. Dushku’s main ticket to fame was her role as Faith, the badass troublemaking slayer from 1998-2003 in Joss Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer. You may also remember that she played Arnold Schwarzenegger’s doe-eyed renegade daughter in the unbelievably awful film, True Lies, in 1994. Dushku’s best performance, was, without doubt, the rebellious gymnast-turned-cheerleader Missy Pantone in the 2000 film, Bring it On, which isarguably the best film ever created. I used to love Eliza Dushku!
Our question is: what the hell happened to her?! Why did she suddenly drop off our radars after being part of this cheerleading masterpiece? After a little research, here is what I’ve discovered: she has featured in a reasonable number of television shows and films, none of which I've heard of save The Big Bang Theory, and voicing herself on the Cleveland Show (not particularly good in either case). The actor also dedicates a large portion of her time to activism and humanitarian work dedicated to providing aid in Northern Uganda. Dushku was also married to a Los Angeles Lakers basketball player for a few years (weren’t we all?) before their divorce earlier this year. I’m mildly confused as to why Dushku actually seems to maintain an active social media presence through her Facebook and Instagram at this point, considering she isn't really doing anything at all. But not as confused as I am about why she failed to maintain the same popularity she enjoyed in the '90s through the beginning of this 21st Century. Full disclosure: she’s still super hot.
