There is a wounded battlefield full of 1990s actresses who never made it to the aughts, much less 2013. Think about actresses like Lori Petty, Fairuza Balk, Joey Lauren Adams, Kristy Swanson, Andrea Elson, Amanda Peterson, Mary Stuart Masterson, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, or Rae Dawn Chong, just to name a few. They had a few big years, and then more or less fell into obscurity, although you'll still occasionally find them on a VH1 reality show or an episode of the 80s/90s obsessed Psych.

It's not easy to sustain a career over 20 years, and it's even more difficult to maintain relevancy. But a look at the 20 television actresses below who got their starts in the early 90s -- or in some cases, earlier -- it's clear that they still got it. They still have the looks, the talent, and the sense of humor that catapulted them into our lives 20 years ago. Age has been more than kind; it's been generous.

Carla Gugino. What She's Still Got? Seriously underrated talent, a career that's never been as good as she deserves, and looks that we would kill for.

Gillian Anderson. What She's Still Got? Impeccable talent, a huge following, a look that says she's not to be f**ked around with, and the same qualities that made her FHM's Sexiest Woman Alive in 1996, aged to perfection.
