Some of our favorite films and shows over the years have left a lasting impression. But what ever happened to the starring actors and actresses? While some have gone on to bigger and better things, many have not been so successful in Hollywood. We’re looking at what went wrong for these stars in the fickle world of showbusiness.
There are all sorts of reasons why Hollywood stops casting a previously successful actor, and we’re going to look at them here. In some cases, actors have turned their back on the profession, but many others weren’t given another option. Find out where these once-hot celebrities have been in recent years.
Megan Fox Has a Big Mouth
Actress Megan Fox rose to prominence in the Transformers film franchise. She had previously been relatively unknown before director Michael Bay gave her her big break, but she still had a lot to say about the guy. “He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is,” she said in an interview. She ended up leaving the franchise, but it’s pretty understood that she was given no other choice.
When asked in an interview about dropping Megan from the Transformers, Michael said, “She was in a different world, on her Blackberry (phone.)” He revealed that director Steven Spielberg told him to “fire her” after her dancing comment. From there, other studios continued to give her a chance at redemption, but every movie she was in got panned by critics and audiences alike. Basically, she’s not cut out for showbiz.
