A 2006 classic romantic, "The Holiday" is a breath of fresh air not just for fans who enjoy the rom-com on a re-watch but also a lovely trip down memory lane for its characters who seem to have done well for themselves.
The romantic comedy "The Holiday" has been a mind-blower since it was released on December 8, 2006. The 14-year old movie has retained its spot as one of the best Christmas movies of all time.
The hilarious rom-com, which involves two women who exchange homes in different countries where they eventually find love, has a star-studded cast, and 14 years later, here's what they're up to.
Following the success of "The Holiday," in which the Hollywood actress starred as Amanda Woods, she featured in other movies such as "Shrek The Third," in 2007.
After walking her path through Hollywood's fame and featuring in several blockbusters, Diaz finally stopped acting in 2019, welcoming her daughter, Raddix, together with her husband, Benji Madden.
After successfully playing the role of Iris Simpkins in "The Holiday," the famous actress won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in "The Reader" and has featured in other movies.
Black forgot he featured in the movie.
As the years passed, the star added a Best Supporting Actress nomination for playing Joanna Hoffman in the movie, "Steve Jobs." Presently, she shares three children with her husband, Ned Rocknroll, with whom she tied the knot in 2012.
Playing Graham Simpkins was merely the start for the popular actor as he starred as Dr. Watson in the fan-favorite movie franchise, "Sherlock Holmes," alongside other famous movies such as "Captain Marvel."
Law had two children from his former girlfriends Samantha Burke and Catherine Harding before settling down with Philipa Coan in 2019, with whom he also shares a child.
The 51-year-old Jack Black played Miles Dumont in the entertaining comedy, "The Holiday." After starring in "Kung Fu Panda" from 2007 to 2016, he featured in other films such as "Jumanji."
The star has gone on to make other significant moves, receiving a star on the Hollywood Wall of Fame and launching his Youtube channel Jablinski Games in 2018. He also shares two children, Samuel and Thomas, with Tanya Haden, to whom he got married in 2006.
While the romantic comedy, "The Holiday," continues to live on in fans' minds, especially during the Christmas festive season, Black forgot he featured in the movie.
The actor, who had been busy since he starred in the hit movie wondered when he featured in a Christmas movie after being reminded during an interview with a media outlet.
Other actors that featured in the classic are the late Eli Wallach, who played Arthur and passed away in 2014, Rufus Sewell as Jasper, who went on to star in "The Eleventh Hour," and Edward Burns as Ethan, who is now a writer/producer.
