Sadly, heartthrobs come and go. Many of the cuties that stole our hearts in the ‘90s have either gone on to have successful acting careers (we’re looking at you, Leonardo DiCaprio) or they have totally disappeared from the spotlight. We can still reminisce though, which is why we have a list of 8 ‘90s heartthrobs who gave up on acting and now only live on through our imaginations:
8. Brandon Call
Brandon Call is best remembered for his role in the show Step by Step as the sports-loving, school-hating eldest son J.T. Lambert. After the show ended, he abruptly retired from acting. Some think he chose to do so because of a bizarre road rage incident (which he recovered from) where another driver shot him in both arms. Rumor has it that he is currently working at his parent’s San Diego area gas station/car wash and he looks nothing like his former heartthrob self.
