Rene Russo: Dairy Farmer (and Now Back on the Hollywood Scene…for Now)
How You Know Her: "Ransom," "Outbreak," "Major League" — just to name a few. She was basically one of the "It" women of the '90s.
What’s She Up to Now?: The now 60-year-old walked away from Tinsel Town after filming "Yours, Mine & Ours" and "Two for the Money" in 2004 and 2005 — and decided to start a dairy company! "I have 40 cows!" she tells Wenn. "It's right outside of Buffalo and I have this friend who used to be a farmer and this incredible chef and he came to Christmas with this amazing milk and yogurt and I said, 'You made this? You could sell this!'"
Rene made her return to films in 2011 when she signed on to play Thor's mom in the superhero flick. She's currently starring alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in "Nightcrawler," but insists she'll leave Hollywood again if nothing else exciting comes her way. "'Nightcrawler' was a killer role," she said. "I could not have said 'no' to this. I don't know if there is another role that I feel excited about doing. I just take it one day at a time. If not, I'll go milk my cows!"
