Hollywood and the folks who inhabit that universe might look glamorous, but the fact is that people tend to come and go in a huge hurry.
Sometimes it because they’re outed for terrible things they’ve done and other times it’s through no fault of their own.
But there’s no doubt about it: a fall from grace in Hollywood is a movie in its own right.
Folks on AskReddit talked about what celebrities they think had the worst falls from grace.
Let’s take a look.
1. You know his face.
“Jeffery Jones: Best known for Mr. Rooney in Ferris Bueller & Mr. Deets in Beetlejuice.
He has had numerous problems with profession of child p**n, solicitation of child p**n, problems with registering as a s** offender and updating his s** offender registration.
And finally problems with his employers where people were invited to be on set but parents and visitors were up in arms when they were not formally notified he was a s** offender and on set.”
That 70’s Show was a constant joy since childhood, but after hearing Leah Remini interview a few of his victims, can’t even stomach the thought of watching it.”
3. A big one.
All-time football great, cultivated a public persona as loveable nice guy in TV and movies after his playing career, and then the real OJ was revealed to the public.”
4. Former teeny bopper.
Aaron Carter belongs on this list. The purist teeny bopper heart throb back in the day.
Now, Nick Carter has to get a restraining order against him for threatening to hurt his kids, he’s clearly dealing with m**h addiction and the lowest of his lows.
He did an IG live where him and a friend are driving around, hyping up Aaron, they go through a drive through and Aaron gives the girl a concert tee with his face on it…she had no idea who he was.”
5. The Subway guy.
Fame out of nowhere to convicted p**ophile.”
6. Poor Britney.
“Britney Spears. Poor Britney.
I know it’s said often but when I was a kid, I thought her head shaving and all that was really crazy.
Now that I’m 27, I 100% am surprised she made it that long without snapping and that she hasn’t snapped again.”
7. Fall from grace.
“Harvey Weinstein’s fall from grace was more …Shakespearean .
4 years ago he was the biggest , and most powerful movie producer in the world.
Now he’s a bum convict, a s** offender.”
8. I love Pee Wee!
“Paul Reubens (Pee Wee Herman)
As far as I’m concerned, people like Bill Cosby more than earned their fall… Paul Reubens had an undeserved fall.”
“Silent film star Fatty Arbuckle was accused of r**ing and accidentally k**ling actress Virginia Rappe. Allegedly in his attempt to r**e her, he squashed her to death with his great girth.
He was tried three times and was eventually acquitted. Rappe most likely d**d from appendicitis. His career limped along until he d**d of a heart attack in 1933.”
10. A bad one.
“Can’t believe nobody mentioned Whitney Houston.
She went from being America’s sweetheart and favorite singer to literal crackhead, topping it all off with a very sad and untimely death.”
“Ashley Judd got her career tanked because she pushed back Harvey Weinstein.
She lost her chance with a role in LoTR because of him and she mostly vanished from the screens after he tagged her as a “nightmare” to work with.”
12. Wrestling superstar.
“Chris Benoit. Great WWE wrestler.
Then he k**led his wife and son. Autopsy report showed his brain was like that of a 70 year old Alzheimer’s patient.
Then WWE went and deleted EVERYTHING that had to do with him. They didn’t want him associated with them after that.
He did all that wrestling, got so damaged he k**led his family and WWE just wiped him out”
“Mark Salling from Glee.
He got caught with kid p**n and then hung himself in the forest.
There is a lot of darkness around many members of the Glee cast.”
14. Grunge king.
“Layne Staley, singer of Alice in Chains
He suffered from drug addiction for years, but once his fiancée d**d in ‘96, he basically abandoned the band and accepted that his addiction was going to k**l him.
He never got over her death.
He was found in his apartment weeks after he d**d because he had blocked everyone out of his life.
Truly such a loss to grunge and the music industry in general. And such a great guy that just didn’t want to get better.”
15. Crazy story.
“Aaron Hernandez, if he counts as a celebrity.
Star Patriots tight end, Super Bowl at 22. His last NFL game was an AFC Championship game. 6 months later, he was arrested for m**der. Convicted, sentenced to life without parole, committed suicide in prison at 27.
He was tried for 2 more m**ders and found not guilty but there’s a good chance he did it. The m**der he did get convicted for made sense if he thought that guy was blabbing about the other 2 m**ders he was caught up and wanted to shut him up.”
