Not a year after Forrest Gump, Hall was already onto her next acting job with a film adaptation of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, followed up by several TV films. Her next “big” role, however, was in Sofia Coppola’s directorial debut (which also happens to be one of the most popular ’90s teen movies according to Rotten Tomatoes), The Virgin Suicides. After her turn as Cecilia Lisbon, she appeared on camera only sporadically, choosing to pursue film school, instead.
Though she never quite gave up on acting — starring in Rob Zombie’s 2007 remake of Halloween and peppering her résumé with a number of guest roles over the years — Hall eventually found herself behind the camera more often than she did in front of it. She’s worked as an assistant camerawoman, assistant director, and even began directing underground theater productions in California (via International Business Times).
Hall has fond memories of her days as Jenny, but they’re just that — memories. Her Alabama twang is long gone, and she prefers not to try and muster it from within (via IBT). She’s content with the life she made for herself, going to school and bolstering her enviable list of talents.
