Why you never hear from Phoebe Cates anymore .

Why you never hear from Phoebe Cates anymore:-

Phoebe Cates was one of the biggest teen stars of the 1980s. After making her big-screen debut in the Blue Lagoon knockoff Paradise,

he starred in a string of quintessential '80s movies, including Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Private School, and Gremlins. It looked like Cates was here to stay—until the mid-1990s, when she just kind of…disappeared. Here's where Phoebe Cates went, and why she left hollywood behind .
Shortly after her breakthrough role in Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Cates auditioned for more adult roles, including Chloe in the Baby Boomer classic The Big Chill. She didn't get the part (it went to Meg Tilly), but she got to meet one of the film's stars, Kevin Kline. There were major fireworks, and the two dated for years before marrying in 1989. In 1991, Cates and Kline had their first child together, a son named Owen, and three years later they had a daughter, Greta. Like a lot of parents, Cates decided that she preferred focusing on raising a family to pursuing a full-time career outside the home.

Cates didn't completely retire. Her last major role was in the 2001 independent movie The Anniversary Party. She did it as a favor to the director, Jennifer Jason Leigh, one of her best friends since the two played pals in Fast Times at Ridgemont High. (Cates' husband and children also appear in the film.) The Party role, however, is one of a small handful of projects that Cates has deemed worthy of her time. She and Kline made an agreement that once they had kids they'd alternate their schedules: one of them would work while the other would stay home with the kids. But whenever it was her turn, the projects she was offered didn't seem to justify leaving home for weeks or months at a time, so she turned them down.

Since The Anniversary Party, Cates has acted in just one more project, and it was a bit of a nostalgic lark. She reprised her role (in voice only) of Kate Beringer, her character from the Gremlins movies, for the video game LEGO Dimensions.
