What happened to Shannyn Sossamon?

She seemed to have a pretty decent career going on a few years ago but lately all she's had is small supporting roles in crappy movies. Listen up Hollywood We want more Shannyn!

I loved her in Rules of Attraction. Perhaps she will have a role in one or both of the sequels, if they ever get made.

I last saw her in "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang", one of the better movies I saw in 2005.

Well, The Order tanked and The Rules Of Attraction, while good, also went nowhere. Perhaps this rising star never quite shone bright enough.

I didn't know who she was until I googled. Cute girl, but I can't remember her in any movies.

She never really stood out to me. For every role she was in seemed like she was playing herself.

I think she is a pretty good actress, but her eyebrows always kept me on the fence as far as her looks go.

She did give birth to a son in 2003 with the odd name of Audio Science, so that probably slowed her career a bit. The kid's name also indicates that she might well be insane.

I checked her imdb upcoming credits and didn't find anything that looked like it would improve her profile. There are a ton of young starlets like her out there who started out promisingly but never break through to the higher ranks.

My thoughts exactly. Gretchen Mol, anyone?

She may not be a good example anymore, though, given that her next film (The Notorious Bettie Page) has breakout potential.

She has never looked as good as she did in A Knight's Tale with Heath Ledger.

Sorry, but I just I've kept her in bed a lot lately!
She hasn't made it out much!

While I think she's hot and really enjoyed just about every film I saw her in, (I never wathced 40 days cause that dude sucks) she never struck me as anything more than flavor of the month. Her month's over.

But I did think her and Ledger had a good thing going. Neither The Order or A Knight's Tale did that well, but I loved them both. The two of them together have great on-screen chemistry.
