This may be hard to believe, but Sara Paxton is turning 32 years old on Saturday, April 25! The actress was 18 years old when she starred as the mermaid Aquamarine in the 2006 film Aquamarine, which means it’s been 14 years since the movie — based on the young adult novel of the same name by Alice Hoffman — first hit theaters. Wow, time has seriously flown by!
Besides Sarah, the flick also starred Emma Roberts, Jojo, Jake McDorman, Arielle Kebbel and Tammin Sursok. For those who forgot, the romantic comedy followed a mermaid who washes ashore during the day to prove to her father that true love exists. Two BFFs, Claire and Hailey, help her win over the cute lifeguard Raymond, but it ultimately proved hard because at night, Aquamarine lost her legs and turned back into a fish. Finally, at the the end of the film, the three girls prove that true love exists between friends. Aquamarine returns to the sea with plans to continuously visit her friends on land.
But what has the cast been up to since then? Well, J-14 decided to do some investigating, and it turns out, they’ve accomplished a lot over the last 14 years. Scroll through our gallery to find out what the cast of Aquamarine is up to now.
