Another child star to drop the cutesy act in favour of becoming a well-respected actress, Thora Birch successfully transitioned from holiday movies (Christmas and Halloween being her specialties) to the more subversive and acclaimed drama, American Beauty. Despite being under 18 at the time of filming, Birch even takes part in a nude scene, but Academy Award-winning scripts and flashing flesh a mainstream success doth not make and, despite outshining Kevin Spacey, since the early '00s, Birch has been trapped in the realm of direct-to-video releases.
