Weird Science alum Kelly LeBrock was the epitome of youth as she dazzled the red carpet at age 62 on Saturday.

The ’80s pinup is best known for playing Lisa in the 1985 sci-fi comedy movie Weird Science, and she has certainly not lost her appeal in the 37 years since the flick premiered.

But has time been as kind to the other cast members? As Kelly steps out onto the red carpet, FEMAIL has taken a look into what happened to the rest of the stars – and uncovered what they’re all doing now.

Aside from LeBrock, the flick also starred Anthony Michael Hall, Ilan Mitchell-Smith, Bill Paxton, and Robert Downy Jr.

It was about two teen misfits who designed their dream woman on a computer, but were in for a shock when a freak electrical accident actually brought her to life.

The movie quickly became a fan favorite, earning $38.9 million in the box office worldwide, and is still beloved today, 37 years later.

Afterwards, some of the stars went on to launch major careers for themselves – starring in a slew of other movies and TV shows – however, others fell off the grid and decided to leave the spotlight behind for other career choices like teaching or running a store.

Some of them were even plagued with controversy – with one of the actors facing shocking felony assault charges in 2016 and another getting arrested many times for drug related charges.

From their other roles and achievements to their love lives and scandals, here’s everything the cast of Weird Science has been up to since the movie came out more than three decades ago.
