Fourteen years ago a lot of things were different. Amanda Bynes was still one of the most sought after young actresses of the time, and teen romantic comedies were soaring, including the hilarious Amanda Bynes led What A Girl Wants. The film didn’t get great reviews from critics, but it was a huge hit with fans and did great at the box office, raking in over $11 million in North America and, by the end of its run, it accrued almost $51 million worldwide. It still makes you laugh, smile and tear up, so check out where the cast is now! 

8. Ben Scholfield

Fans of What a Girl Wants will of course remember Ben Scholfield as the creepy Armistead Stuart. He had just begun school when he left to film What a Girl Wants and afterwards decided not to pursue acting. He now has a career in the management of music, film and television rights and has acted as an executive music producer for the film Sparks and Embers and as an executive producer for the short film One Day in Hell. Before deciding on his career behind the scenes, he also worked as a ski instructor and thought about training to become a professional tennis player.
