Being a celebrity must be hard. One moment you’re on top of the world, the next nobody wants to hire you. You do one bad movie and you could be out of Hollywood. It’s almost like having a real job, the horror!
Some celebrities have managed to fall down on their faces and crawl back up, though. They reached the top, fell all the way down and through nothing but sheer force of will clawed their way back up. And now we’ve all somehow forgotten that we all abandoned them at some point in the past because we figured there were better performers around. And there probably were, to be honest.
Anyway, let’s have a look at some celebrities with unstable careers at best.
While Angelina’s Career was never in any real danger, her personal life hasn’t been doing too well. After her nasty divorce from Brad Pitt, she lost an alarming amount of weight. Now that she hasn’t starred in movies for a while, she’s starting to look a lot better (and healthier).
After her divorce from David Arquette, Courteney – much like Renée Zellweger – started looking like she had surgery done. Thankfully she’s recently shown up with her more natural look. Her career is still pretty quiet since Cougar Town stopped filming, but we’re sure Courteney will get another chance to shine on the silver screen soon!
Once you do a few light comedies, you get to the point where no one takes you seriously anymore. Vince knows how that feels. It nearly killed his career, in fact. Ever since starring in True Detective, he’s been regaining his credit as a real actor and getting his career back on track.
Probably the most infamous breakdown of all was the one of Mel Gibson. What started as a somewhat charming anger management issue turned into a stream of racist remarks which dropped him from his pedestal real fast. Thanks to his latest work, notably Hacksaw Ridge, he’s moved on past this dark period in his life and reached the top again.
