32. Peter Ostrum
At 11 years old Ostrum made $30,000 staring as Charlie Bucket in the 1971 version of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. In a twist of fate his parents bought him a pony with the money, and it died after only two weeks. This event inspired his real life’s work as a veterinarian.

33. Heather Deloach
Dressed as a bumble bee, Deloach danced her way through the music video of the 1992 hit “No Rain”. This exposure netted her appearances in a number of movies and TV series. Despite this success, she left Hollywood in 2010 to establish an event planning company which she named, coincidentally, Sweet Bee.
34. M.C. Hammer
Perhaps most famous for his song “Can’t Touch This”, former rapper M.C. Hammer left the music industry an alcoholic, and deeply in debt. He went into rehab, and in an inspirational move became a pastor. He now has his own show on the Trinity Broadcasting Network, where he spreads the word of the Lord.
Sadly, the hip hop star in the group Wu-Tang Clan had a nervous breakdown after his wife left him, and Cappadonna even considered taking his own life. Instead, he left his house and belongings behind and took to living on the streets. Friends then helped him get a job driving a cab, which he did for several years in New York before returning to his previous life. He has released some new songs which were inspired by the stories from passengers in his cab, and is back with his wife. He continues to get Mental Health treatment.
