29 of Rachael Leigh Cook's Roles That Show She's Still All That
Rachael Leigh Cook's role as outcast Laney Boggs in the iconic teen rom-com She's All That is the reason I often look in the mirror as I take off my glasses and think: "instant makeover done." While 1999's She's All That may have been Cook's breakout role, she actually got her start as Mary Anne Spier in the 1995 adaptation of The Baby-Sitters Club.
From cult classic's like Josie and the Pussycats to recurring roles on TV shows like Psych and Robot Chicken, Cook's proved her comedy prowess. I mean, many hate on Josie and the Pussycats, but it's one of those films you can rewatch and find something new to love each and every time — with Cook's Josie McCoy being one of the highlights. Although she's mostly known for her lighthearted roles, Cook has dabbled in the world of drama with 2007's The Final Season and the crime series Perception alongside Erick McCormack. From the looks of Netflix's Love, Guaranteed, which is out Sept. 3, she's headed back to the rom-coms we know and love.
