But Green, 48, did launch a production company, Independent Women Artists, then directed one of the company's movies, "Bellyfruit" in 1999, which IMDB states "she received critical acclaim for." As of the mid-2000's, she still writes for screenplays and other projects. She also starred in a 2012 film, "Complacent."
In 2009, she reunited with the cast for the 25th anniversary and told Empire magazine, "Andy would still be in her mini-skirt, with a cigarette and martini, waiting for [Brolin's character] to come home!"
Martha Plimpton, Stef
Plimpton, 44, is another actress that has really made a name for herself in Hollywood and been very prolific.
