Forgotten Actresses From The ‘80s: Where Are They Now?
10. Debra Winger
Debra Winger started her career on the small screen in the television series Wonder Woman, but she achieved big screen success in the ‘80s with the films An Officer and a Gentleman and Terms of Endearment, both of which earned her Academy Award nominations. While she continued to work during the ’90s and even earned another Academy Award nomination for her role in the 1993 film Shadowlands, over the years, she acquired a reputation for being difficult to work with and then faded from the spotlight. After leaving Hollywood, she was a teaching fellow for one semester at Harvard, wrote a memoir called Undiscovered, was co-executive producer of the Academy Award-nominated documentary Gasland, and was also the executive producer of the 2012 documentary Bel Borba Aqui. She most recently appeared in the movies, Boychoir and The Lovers.
