The Real Reason These (Former) Stars Disappeared From Hollywood

Scandal, botched plastic surgery, addiction, and much more led to the downfall of these formerly famous stars. Although most regular folks idolize celebrities, it can be hard to constantly be in the public eye. As actors and actresses leave the limelight we ask two question: why, and where are they now?


Chuck Norris, Not An Actual Actor

Chuck Norris is more of an American novelty than he is an actor. This might be why he came and went so fast. Famous for his tough guy demeanor, it wasn’t long until he ran out of stereotypical acting jobs.

Renée Zellweger’s New Face

Renée took a few years hiatus between 2010 and 2014. When she made an appearance at the Elle Magazine Women in Hollywood Awards in 2014 it was evident that she had gone under the knife. Since then, she has put out numerous films and may be on her way back to fame.

Meg Ryan Hated The Hollywood Lifestyle

This former star gave up Hollywood for the quiet life. She relocated her family to New York City and stopped all acting for almost six years. The 90’s rom-com queen wishes not to be recognized and instead live a simple, normal life.

Emilio Estevez (Is that Charlie Sheens Brother?)

Emilio is perhaps more famous for the fact that his brother is Charlie Sheen than his actual acting resume. He starred in the cult classic and much-loved movie ‘The Breakfast Club’, but not too many people nowadays know much else.
