Happy anniversary, American Beauty ! It's hard to believe that it's been 20 years since the creepiest look at suburbia since The Stepford Wives hit theaters, considering the impact the movie had on Hollywood; between a rise in satire, the reign of Kevin Spacey, and all those rose petal satires, Sam Mendes' Oscar-winning drama's impact on pop culture has been huge.

The same can't be said for the careers of all its stars, though. While several members of Beauty's cast have gone on to great success (House of Cards, anyone?), plenty of others haven't had the same good luck. From winning Emmys to making movies about weed, here's what the stars of the 1999 classic are up to today.
