Surprisingly like her on-screen mum, actually
‘Stacy’s Mom’ by Fountains Of Wayne came out eight years ago in 2009, and anybody who says they didn’t spend an embarrassing amount of time wishing they looked like Stacy (or her mum, actually) is lying.
And though the song is still played at every #ThrowbackThursday party ever to exist, what ever happened to Stacy, and did her friend every actually pull her mum?
While we can’t answer the second question, Pretty52 have done a bit of digging and discovered what Gianna Distenca, the actress who played Stacey, is up to now.
She’s in her mid-twenties and living in Beirut, Lebanon, after leaving the US in 2013. According to her Instagram feed, she sculpts, paints and draws for a living, and has also volunteered at a refugee camp for children.
Here’s what she looks like now:
Although there’s no mention of the Fountains Of Wayne music video on her profile, people have occasionally commented on her role as Stacy in the comments.
One person wrote, “I was a fan of your art. I noticed you look like Stacy from the fountains of wayne. Hahaha. You really look like her”, while another added, “I love you more than your mom, Stacy 😂😂”
