In August 2000, cult classic Coyote Ugly was released (it was a hell of a year all round for films, by the way). To mark the movie’s 20th anniversary, let’s take a look at what the cast have been up to since, shall we? We can safely say whatever it is they’ve been doing, we absolutely want to be doing it too because they look exactly the same as they did 20 years ago…
Piper Perabo (Violet)
Remind me… The protagonist. Violet moves to New York to make it as a song-writer, while working at female-run bar, Coyote Ugly.
What’s she done since? She’s had some box office wins (Cheaper By The Dozen 1 and 2), and won a Golden Globe for Covert Affairs in 2011. After briefly dating Matthew Perry, she married director Stephen Kay in 2014.
Right now… Piper stars in Penny Dreadful: City of Angels.
Adam Garcia (Kevin)
Remind me... Violet’s love interest. Kevin eventually redeemed himself after pretending to be a music manager.
What’s he done since? Adam has spent much of his career starring in West End musicals like Saturday Night Fever. Oh, and he’s Olivier nominated, don’t you know.
Right now… He recently filmed Kenneth Branagh’s Death on the Nile, alongside Gal Gadot.
Bridget Moynahan (Rachel)
Remind me… The slightly unfriendly Coyote.
What’s she done since? Already a successful model, Bridget’s film debut helped land roles on big budget movies like I, Robot, John Wick and The Recruit. She has a son with her ex, NFL star Tom Brady.
Right now… She’s had a starring role in Blue Bloods since 2010.
Tyra Banks (Zoe)
Remind me… Zoe quits the bar to go to law school, but returns for that final scene.
What’s she done since? One of the highest paid models ever, Tyra created reality TV juggernaut America’s Next Top Model in 2003. She also had her own chat show and owns a make-up line.
Right now… She recently talked about a possible Coyote Ugly 2. We’re fully here for that.
Izabella Miko (Cammie)
Remind me… The OG Coyote who befriended Violet from the get-go.
What she’s done since… The actor and dancer has appeared in lots of minor TV roles and also music videos and dance movies, including 2006’s Save The Last Dance 2 and 2014’s Step Up All In (that’s the fifth film in the franchise, FYI).
Right now… According to IMDb, her most recent acting credit is Amazon drama Hunters. She’s also the owner of a fancy eco luxury candle line.
LeAnn Rimes (played herself)
Remind me… LeAnn performs Violet’s song in the final scene.
What’s she done since? LeAnn, who was already a household name, became even more recognisable and has since made 11 studio albums. In 2009 she starred in Northern Lights, where she met husband Eddie Cibrian.
Right now…. She’s kept a low-profile following a well-publicised fall out with Cibrian’s ex Brandi Glanville.
