1. Jonathan Taylor Thomas

The Home Improvement heartthrob has been out of the spotlight for years, save for a few TV appearances on Ally McBeal, Smallville, Veronica Mars, and most recently, Last Man Standing, the sitcom of his Home Improvement dad, Tim Allen. What has he been doing since he left showbiz? Oh, he has only been attending Harvard University, Columbia University, and Scotland’s St. Andrew’s University. SMART HOTTIE ALERT!

2. Devon Sawa

The Casper cutie, who was on TV series Nikita until 2013, is set to star in the upcoming indie drama Life on the Line opposite John Travolta and Kate Bosworth. His wife gave birth to son Hudson last year—that’s him in the pic!

3. Andrew Keegan

Bet you didn’t see this coming: The 10 Things I Hate About You star started a spiritual community called Full Circle in 2014. Here he is with the community pet, Krishna.

4. Freddie Prinze, Jr.

The superjock from She’s All That currently lends his voice to the animated series Star Wars Rebels, and he’ll be releasing his first cookbook, Back to the Kitchen, in 2016. You’ll be delighted to know that he is still happily married to Sarah Michelle Gellar, and she even wrote the foreword to his cookbook. So much awww.

5. Ryan Phillippe

The golden-haired ‘90s hottie just wrapped his role on TV series Secrets and Lies and will not be returning to the show's next season. He shares custody of his kids Ava and Deacon with ex-wife and fellow Cruel Intentions star Reese Witherspoon, with whom he split in 2007.

6. James Van Der Beek

After the sitcom Friends with Better Lives, Dawson James now plays an FBI agent on CSI: Cyber. He has also been showing off his comedic side, appearing in a fan film take on the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and a Funny or Die skit mocking Indiana's controversial religious freedom law.

7. Joshua Jackson

Recently, celeb sites were abuzz with rumors that he and longtime girlfriend Diane Kruger were married. He will appear with his ladylove in the movie Sky along with Norman Reedus and Lena Dunham. Currently, you can catch him in the acclaimed TV series The Affair.

8.  Josh Hartnett

Josh presently plays a werewolf in the series Penny Dreadful. Congrats are in order; he and English actress Tamsin Egerton have a baby on the way!

9.  Chris Klein

Chris struggled with sobriety and voluntarily checked himself into rehab in 2010, but it looks like everything’s A-OK with the American Pie cutie now. He got engaged to longtime girlfriend Laina Rose Thyfault last December. Here he is in a recent episode of the Canadian series Motive.

10. Hanson

The Hanson brothers are now also entrepreneurs, debuting a brand of craft beer called Mmmhops Pale Ale (we see what you did there!) in 2013. They also have a new song out with Owl City, and it’s about growing up in the ‘90s, natch. Stream it here.

11. Edward Furlong

WTH happened, Eddie?! The award-winning teen crush was in and out of jail from 2012 to 2013 for domestic violence and other charges and has had protective orders taken out on him both by his ex-girlfriend and ex-wife. It’s good to see him still acting though, such as in the 2014 horror Stitch.

12. Jason Priestley

Beverly Hills 90210’s Brandon Walsh is also a director now! He directed his first indie feature film, Cas & Dylan, with Richard Dreyfuss and Tatiana Maslany in the lead.

13. Luke Perry

Beverly Hills 90210’s Dylan McKay played a disgraced rock musician in the critically acclaimed British indie flick The Beat Beneath My Feet last year. He will soon be appearing in the TV crime drama CSI: Cyber and the cable series Ties That Bind.

14. Chris O'Donnell

Hunky Robin from the ‘90s Batman movies has focused on TV work in recent years, playing the lead in NCIS: Los Angeles since 2009, and let’s not forget his turn as an ultra-adorbs vet in Grey's Anatomy in 2006. Chris also received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame just last March.

15. Christian Slater

These days, the Pump Up the Volume bad boy plays a master hacker on the cable series Mr. Robot. If you used to have a raging crush on him, you’re in good company: Even Mindy Kaling wanted the ‘90s hottie to take her V-card.
