Three men and a baby (1987) cast then and now 2020
The 1987 hit “Three Men and a Baby,” starring Tom Selleck, Steve Guttenberg, and Ted Danson, has been 27 years in the making. But what happened to baby Mary, their tiny co-star!? When Lisa Blair and Michelle Blair Ontonovich were just four months old, they took turns playing Mary Bennington alongside the hysterical trio. On Monday, the twins appeared on “Today” to discuss what it was like to be a part of such a successful film. “When we were younger, it wasn’t such a big deal to us,” Michelle said. “I believe it was when we were teenagers that people began approaching us a lot more…” Lisa finished her sister’s sentence by saying, “Asking us for our autographs and all.” After their first and only film, the 27-year-old former child stars left Hollywood. According to their mother, their whole on-screen experience was “a bit of a fluke.”
Three Men and a Baby was one of the most famous films of the 1980s, but what happened to the movie’s star, Mary, who was not Tom Selleck, Steve Guttenberg, or Ted Danson.
Mary was played by twin sisters Lisa Blair and Michelle Blair Ontonovich, not by a single actress. The pair appeared on The Today Show this morning (June 16), 27 years since the comedy classic premiered. Neither sister pursued a career in Hollywood after the film. Michelle, who works in banking, is now a mother of her own five-month-old Jacob. Lisa works in customer care. “When we were younger, it wasn’t a big deal to us,” Michelle said. “People started contacting us a lot more when we were teenagers, I believe. They came up to us and asked for our autographs and all.” Geriann, the mother of the sisters, represented
In addition to sharing humorous set stories (Lisa peed on Tom Selleck while filming the film’s famous poster: “That wasn’t water; that wasn’t staged”), the girls’ mother, Geriann Blair, revealed that their casting was a complete coincidence. She explained, “I was just bored at home on [maternity] leave when I heard about this casting call.” “I thought it was just a movie scene.” Michelle and Lisa both left Hollywood as they grew older (Michelle now works in the insurance industry, while Lisa works in customer service), but their friendship has remained strong; they even live in the same place. Robin Weisman, who played five-year-old Mary in the sequel Three Men and a Little Lady, is still on the loose.

Mitchelle blair custody hearing 07/27/15 part 3
I was 13 years old at the time. It was right up there with Dirty Dancing, Labamba, Throw Mama from the Train, and Teen Wolf Too! for me that year. Were those the good ol’ days, weren’t they? For anyone of a certain generation, the 1980s appear to be just a breath away (I am sooo dating myself in this post ).
The plot couldn’t be more straightforward: three bachelors, Peter (Tom Selleck), Jack (Ted Dansen), and Michael (Steve Guttenberg), share a New York City apartment with a revolving door of gorgeous women; one-night stands who come and go with the regularity of a traffic light until one morning their lives are turned upside down by the arrival of the one woman who won’t be leaving in the morning – a pre-teen girl.
The film was the year’s most commercially successful release, grossing $167 million in the United States, surpassing Fatal Attraction.
The film was named People’s Choice for Favorite Comedy Motion Picture in 1988. It made almost as much money in that year as Lethal Weapon, Predator, and Robocop combined.
