Top 90 Under 90 In The 90s

BuzzFeed likes the 90s, right? WELL, GET READY FOR SOME TRIPLE NINETIES ACTION. Here are the top 90 under 90 in the 90s. This list was ordered with science. Part two in a series.

86. Ben Affleck

This freaking guy. He was 26 in 1999, and had already won an Oscar for the Good Will Hunting screenplay with Matt Damon. Four years away from Gigli. Fifteen years away from Argo. What a career.

52. Mike Myers

Man, this was Mike Myers' decade. Wayne's World. Austin Powers. But somewhere in the back of that silly looking Canadian head was the seed that eventually bloomed into the corpse flower we know today as "The Love Guru." And this we cannot forgive. 35 in 1999.

37. Hubble Space Telescope

This thing was initially thought to be a huge white elephant after its pictures came all blurry. But then we fixed it and it's been awesome ever since. Totally deserves to be on this list. 8 years old in 1999.

16. Pope John Paul II

Everyone liked this Pope. He was mostly fine. He didn't care for Communists, we guess, but that was more in the 80s. So, like lots of other things about the 90s, just, you know, fine. 78 in 1999.

15. Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson was a crazyperson and the undisputed dominant force in boxing. In 1992 he was convicted of rape. In 1997 he bit off a piece of Evander Holyfield's ear for some reason. What a bizarre career. 32 in 1999.

14. Vaclav Havel, First President of the Czech Republic

One of the coolest dudes you've never heard of. Successfully managed Czechoslovakia's transition to democracy and capitalism after the fall of the USSR. Also an acclaimed playwright. An anti-communist dissident, spent multiple stays in jail. Probably the first actual hipster president in Eastern Europe? 62 years old in 1999.

9. Kirstie Alley

In the 1990s, Kirstie Alley was on Cheers, starred in Look Who's Talking, and judging by this picture appears to have won a People's Choice Award for something or other (we're not googling that). So, you know, the people have just always been fantastic at choosing, we guess. 47 in 1999.

5. Deng Xiaoping, Chinese economic reformer

Deng Xiaoping, who entered the 1990s at the age of 86 so we're going to let him slide, is basically the reason that China became an economic colossus, so major props to him. He ranks just behind...
