Clumsky is best known for her great childhood acting skills in "My Girl," but what exactly happened after that movie?
Anna Chlumsky is now 30, and she is used to people recognizing her for the role in My Girl she played nearly 20 years ago. Anna Chlumsky quit acting shortly after she started college at the University of Chicago, where she toyed with dreams of being a horse dentist or a paleontologist.
But now it looks Anna Chlumsky is back. At age 30 she is beginning to break back into the acting business filming pilots and guest starring on popular tv shows. After we fell in love with Chlumsky as Vada Sultanfuss the actress left Hollywood in order to focus on college.
The 'My Girl' star then took a job as a fact-checker for the Zagat restaurant guide, then worked as an editorial assistant at HarperCollins, until she says a psychic reminded her that she still wanted to be an actress.
