Throwback Thursday: Jennifer Jason Leigh

Since we recently looked back at our top 80 female celebrity crushes of the 1980s, headlined by Phoebe Cates, today let’s see what her co-star in their classic 80s film, Jennifer Jason Leigh, has been up to.

Jennifer Jason Leigh was the “other” reason boys everywhere flocked to see Fast Times at Ridgemont High back in the day and anyone who has seen the film knows why. Unfortunately after that film there wasn’t much else we wanted to see her in other than Last Exit to Brooklyn and Single White Female. But it’s not like she hasn’t been working as her IMDB profile will attest. You may have even caught her on Weeds or Revenge in semi-recurring roles the last couple of years. But for those that haven’t, she’s got as many as five films coming out this year. And as you can see from the pictures that follow, even at 51 she’s still got some of what got guys’ attention way back in 1982.
