- Advertisment -

Shrek is an animated fantasy-comedy movie directed by Andrew Adamson and Vicky Jenson. It’s the tale of an ogre who is outcasted by society, and one day finds his home overrun by a myriad of strange-looking mystical creatures who have been banished by Lord Farquaad. A deal is made so that Shrek can be free of these creatures and regain his privacy and comfortability in being alone, but only in exchange for the trapped away Princess Fiona. Shrek meets Donkey on the way, and the unravelling of the tale of friendship, adventure, love and various life lessons begin.

The first Shrek movie was released over two decades ago, in 2001. Since then, there has been Shrek 2 which was released in 2004, followed by Shrek the Third which was released in 2007, and finally, Shrek Forever After, released in 2010.

This iconic set of movies was the pinnacle of comedy for a lot of our childhoods. Do you ever wonder what happened to the man behind our titular ogre, Shrek? Or perhaps you’re wondering… What happened to Princess Fiona! Donkey? The Gingerbread man?

Well, let’s jump in and find out!

Mike Myers movies, shows and books after Shrek

Mike Myers voiced the notorious ogre, Shrek. However, we haven’t seen much of him after the franchise came to an end. It seems that he deviated from his acting career subsequent to his movies doing poorly at the box office after the releases of Shrek.

He published a book titled Canada on the 15th of October, 2016, which delved into his personal analysis of Canada.

His return to acting was with the small role of Ray Foster in Netflix’s Bohemian Rhapsody, which was released in November, 2018. He’s currently starring in the Netflix series The Pentaverate alongside Lydia West, Debi Mazar and Jennifer Saunders, which is now streaming.

Mike Myers is also rumored to be starring in Austin Powers 4!

Cameron Diaz books, dating, family and more

Cameron Diaz voiced Princess Fiona. She decided to depart from her journey as an actress in 2014, after starring in a remake of Annie as the character Miss Hannigan.

In an interview with InStyle, she said:

I’ve given more than half of my life to the public. I feel it’s OK for me to take time for myself now.

So what else has she been up to, if not acting?

Simple answer is: becoming a New York Times bestselling author, mother, wife and an entrepreneur!

Diaz has published 2 books:

  • The Body Book: Feed, Move, Understand and Love Your Amazing Body, published in 2013. This book was created to be a vessel for Cameron Diaz to share her processes of achieving greater happiness and a healthier mindset.
  • The Longevity Book: The Science of Aging, the Biology of Strength, and the Privilege of Time, published in 2016. This book is created to be a guide for women to maintain their health and strength as they age.

Diaz married American musician, Benji Madden, in 2015. The couple went on to have a daughter who they named Raddix, born on December 30, 2019!

As for most recently, she launched her own brand of organic, additive-free, clean wine called “Avaline” in 2020. This is her primary focus these days, business-wise.
