Hollywood is a crazy ride for many celebrities. Either you make it, don’t make it, or you find yourself somewhere in the middle waiting for answers and tons of auditions that don’t pan out. While the big break may be near for many celebrities, these are 15 of them that found success and are now simply out of the Hollywood spotlight.
1. Mel Gibson
Do you know Mel Gibson? He is known for many of his movies including, “The Passion of the Christ” and “Lethal Weapon 4.” He has earned a good living through his Hollywood acting, but he has simply faded from the screen. In fact, he started to fade out of Hollywood once he was caught drunk driving and after he started to openly share his views about hot button topics such as stem cell research.
2. Sarah Michelle Gellar
Sarah Michelle Gellar was popular prior to 2009 and was best known for the movie, “I Know What You Did Last Summer.” After 2007, Gellar seemed to struggle with film production and acting. Her popularity started to decrease and she simply is not heard of much anymore.
3. Scott Baio
Scott Baio is not a movie star, but yet a television show star. In fact, his biggest break was his role in “Happy Days.” Baio starred in some other television shows and was the face in many commercials for a long time. However, 1990 rolled around and the actor simply disappeared from center stage. While his disappearance has not been taken well by him, he just cannot seem to catch a good break, no matter what he does.
