Next It doesn’t matter if you were a 90s kid, odds are if you’re a fan of Hollywood, you remember the 90s (but it obviously helps to have been around then). The stars were glamorous, talented to boot, the music was catchy and, for the most part, the actors and performers that entertained us throughout the 90s withstood the test of time.Who can forget Andrea Barber’s character on Full House? Titanic, the Big Lebowski, Pulp Fiction, the Silence of the Lambs, Clueless and everyone’s favorite hero, Forrest Gump. So much so, that we all at times become nostalgic to a decade long gone, which is why we should also thank 21st century technology for helping us with our 90s craving.That show put Andrea on Hollywood’s radar, even if typecasting her slightly in the process. Andrea acted from the early 1980s in the soap opera, Days of Our Lives, and while the show was, well, still is, on the air and popular, her character of Carrie Brady never made waves like her Full House role.After Full House, Andrea retired from acting to go back to ‘normal life’.She finished high school and went on to get a Bachelors Degree in English from Whittier College and and Masters Degree from University of York in England.She then turned her career goals towards academics, being the assistant to the director of the International Programs at her alma mater, Whittier College.
What got her noticed was first her singing, with her 1999 debut album So Real.
Her role in the 2000 film What Women Want, acting alongside Mel Gibson, had us laughing along with her overly-dependent character, her 2008 role in The Wrestler, got her a third Oscar nomination, and her two latest films, Captain America: Civil War, and Spider Man: Homecoming, will undoubtedly introduce her to yet another generation.
Let’s be honest, we all know Andrea Barber as the annoying, yet somehow lovable, best friend of DJ Tanner, Kimmy Gibbler from Full House.
She went on to star in films such as, Honey, Valentine’s Day, and both Fantastic Four films.
In addition to her acting, Alba is a very successful entrepreneur with her ‘Honest’ company’s success. Even those who didn’t like the genre loved her country-pop style.
