'Scent of a Woman' stars 20 years later: Where are they now?
Al Pacino NOW: Trained in method acting, Pacino had many successes on the stage before he became the stand out film star of iconic movies like “The Godfather” (1972) and “Scarface” (1983). In 1993, Pacino and scored two Academy Award nominations: one for his lead in “Scent of a Woman” (for which he won an Oscar for Best Actor) and another for his supporting role “Glengarry Glen Ross.” Pacino returned to his stage roots as Shylock in the film version of “The Merchant of Venice” (2004) and now has “King Lear” in the works for 2013. While he’s enjoyed a number of relationships with costars and has three children from previous relationships, he has never tied the knot.
Chris O’Donnell THEN: Prep school student, Charlie Simms, is on Thanksgiving break, but he needs to work to make some cash. Lucky for him, Colonel Frank Slade is in need of a caretaker; however, the job description didn’t include daily verbal abuse (or advice, Frank might call it). But after Charlie saves Frank’s life, Frank rescues Charlie by defending him in front of a committee looking to punish the perpetrators of a school prank.
Chris O’Donnell NOW: In1990 O’Donnell landed a role in the dramedy “Men Don’t Leave.” He increased his exposure with “Fried Green Tomatoes” and then landed “Scent of a Woman,” for which he was awarded a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor. O’Donnell then turned down the role of James Edwards in “Men In Black”, but his subsequent success in TV on shows like “Grey’s Anatomy” and most recently on “NCIS: Los Angeles” have kept him in the limelight. The youngest of seven children, O’Donnell is now married with five children.
Gabrielle Anwar THEN: Chris notices Donna from across the room of a restaurant and Frank insists that they make their introduction. Actress Gabrielle Anwar plays the soft-spoken beauty, waiting for a date, who ends up letting the blind but debonair Frank take her for an impressive spin on the dance floor. After Frank gives him some sage advice about women to Chris, he proceeds to lead Donna in a perfect tango on the dance floor for one of the film’s many memorable scenes.
Gabrielle NOW: While the English actress will always be remembered for her tango with Al Pacino, she stayed busy with acting after “Scent of a Woman.” You may remember her as the lovely Queen Anne in “The Three Musketeers” (1993) or as Princess Margaret in “The Tudors.” With an actress mother and award-winning film producer and editor for a father, Anwar is film royalty in more ways than one. You can catch her as Fiona Glenanne in the series “Burn Notice”.
