Being a celebrity means that if you make one mistake, everyone will know about it. If it’s bad enough, it’ll probably ruin your career for the rest of your life. People don’t often forget about the crazy things you do, and it’s a place where there’s no coming back from.
Let’s take a look at some beloved celebrities that ruined their reputation by doing something utterly stupid.
His celebrity breakdown is probably the most memorable, since it’s not that long ago and it was quite spectacular. Mel Gibson struggled with severe alcohol issues and was caught making some antisemitic statements, which led to him being all but ignored by Hollywood for almost a full decade.
Trying to shake the whole “child star” label isn’t easy, but very few people have done it as badly as Lindsay did. She struggled with substance abuse and even spent a short time in jail because she wasn’t exactly keeping to her probation terms.
As much as it pains me to see this man on this list, his lawsuit against The Sun has already done more damage than anyone had suspected. He now has the label of being a domestic abuser and was asked to step down from playing Grindelwald in the last Fantastic Beasts movie. Johnny is appealing the decision, and hopefully we’ll be able to scratch him off this list in a few months.
