10 Celebrities Who Screwed Up and People Still Remember It
Published in May 2021 / Updated in Jun 2021
As much we enjoy watching a celebrity rise, the moment they fall from grace is always more memorable. In fact, some celebrities screw up so badly that we cannot stop thinking about the way they behaved in the past despite their best efforts.
Here are 10 A-listers who managed to screw up their careers and they have no one else to blame but themselves!
His House of Cards role was epic, but it fell apart when Spacey was charged with a felony for allegedly sexually assaulting a journalist.
Several young people from the industry also had their horror stories about the actor.
His house of cards came crumbling down, but what made it worse is that the actor did not even seem bothered by the allegations. Instead, he focused on his sexuality and admitting he’s gay.
We cannot say what exactly happened to Aaron Carter, the former teen heartthrob and younger brother of Nick Carter from Backstreet boys.
We know that his brother has a restraining order against him, that he filed for bankruptcy, he had several DUIs, and he accused his late sister of rape.
Honestly, we wish him well. But he needs to face whatever is going on with his life away from the public and the tabloids.
The former golden boy of Hollywood rose to fame in the 80s, and stayed on top of the world for over two decades.
However, his issues with substance abuse and behavior to his ex-wives became tabloid gold. He went from earning 1.8 million for an episode of Two and a Half Men to posting strange videos of “winning.”
Sheen had it all. What happened?
After beating cancer in 1996 and winning Tour de France for several years in a row, Lance was a national treasure and inspiration.
He admitted to doping for every Tour de France during an interview with Oprah. Armstrong paid 5 million dollars to settle claims that he defrauded the federal government by using performance-enhancing drugs when the United States Postal Service sponsored his cycling team.
They say we should not speak ill about the dead. But, DMX was once a promising rapper, someone people admired and wanted to succeed.
DMX committed pretty much every crime known to man. Driving a car without a license or under the influence of alcohol and drugs, tax fraud, animal cruelty, you name it, he’s done it.
His new album is out now since DMX passed away on April 9, 2021. He suffered a heart attack, got Covid-19, and eventually overdosed. All in a week.
Some celebrities cannot deal with fame, and it leads them to drugs and self-destruction. Others enjoy abusing their position of power.
Once the #MeToo movement took over, Matt Lauer’s career was over. He got fired from NBC’s morning show Today for inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.
Allegedly, the guy’s a serial rapist.
His biggest hit is, ironically, Blurred Lines. And that’s exactly what happened to Robin Thicke once he became a superstar.
As he said, he lost perspective, and that infamous MTV stunt with Miley Cyrus is proof. His wife left. He was abusing prescription drugs and was trapped in a bitter custody battle.
Not to mention that his biggest his song is one of the most misogynistic songs ever recorded…
Similar to Britney Spears or Misha Barton, Amanda Bynes did not shoot herself in the foot.
However, instead of looking for help, Amanda was looking for trouble, and like many child stars, she almost paid the ultimate price of fame.
We cannot erase scenes of her erratic behavior, but we hope she feels better now than in the early 2010s.
Former child superstar was everyone’s favorite in the early 2000s. By 2010, Lohan was known as bad news.
From The Parent Trap to being trapped in her own ways, Lilo seems to be back on track. She left Hollywood, and is living in Dubai, selling jewelry and hopefully staying sober.
We loved Heigl from the very beginning of her career. But, she left us speechless twice in her career after she went after the writers of Grey’s Anatomy and Knocked Up.
She made many people angry. Some called her “difficult,” others said she was “unprofessional.” We understand she tried to be honest, but publicly biting the hand that feeds is you… Not a good idea.
If you want to destroy your career, better do it for a good cause. Or remove yourself from the spotlight and deal with your issues as a person, not someone everyone’s worshiping.
