8 Ways Tara Reid Ruined Her Career
Back in the day, Tara Reid had everything needed to make her a lasting Hollywood star. She may never have had the brilliant acting chops, but she had the ambition, the looks, and a sultry voice to match. But instead of continuing to rise to fame, Tara Reid had one misfire after misfire, failure after failure, and embarrassment after embarrassment. It hasn’t been an easy road, to say the least. Here are 8 ways that Tara Reid ruined her career.
8. Movie Bombs
American Pie may have been a huge success and the cast, which included Tara Reid, enjoyed the spoils of that success which included offers for other roles. Whereas some of her castmates landed juicy parts (see Natasha Lyonne who played Tara Reid’s best friend in the American Pie movies and is now one of the stars of Orange Is The New Black), Tara on the other hand starred in both Josie and the Pussycats and Van Wilder, neither of which were well received by critics. Following that, she appeared as the daughter of a Texas gynecologist in a Robert Altman Film starring Richard Gere called Dr. T & the Women. Remember that one? No? No one else does either.
7. Racking Up Those Razzies
If appearing in crappy movies wasn’t enough, Tara Reid apparently wanted to take home the award for starring in movies that never should have been made…literally. In 2004 she was nominated for Worst Supporting Actress and Worst Screen Couple at the Golden Raspberry Awards for her role in My Boss’s Daughter, which co-starred Ashton Kutcher. The very next year she received a Razzie Award for Worst Actress for her appearance in Uwe Boll’s Alone in the Dark with Christian Slater, which also earned her a viral internet burn when the world cringed at her pronunciation of NewFOUNDland.
