7 Failed Celebrity Comebacks
Hollywood is actually a very forgiving place. There are plenty of instances where a celebrity fell off the rails and then was welcomed back in afterwards with arms wide open; however, Hollywood does have its limits. We have a list of 7 celebrities who messed up big time and then tried to make comebacks and but were ultimately unsuccessfully:
7. Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay Lohan was on top of the world after she starred in the movie Mean Girls. She then launched a music career and began commanding $7.5 million per film. In 2007, however, things went terribly wrong. She was arrested for DUI twice and in one instance was found with a usable amount of cocaine in her pocket. That same year, she was in and out of rehab, but couldn’t quite seem to kick her partying habits or revive her dying career. After numerous failed career restarts and four years without making any appearances in TV shows or movies, she is making another attempt to get back into acting. She recently joined the cast of season two of the British comedy, Sick Note. Will this finally be her comeback? It’s doubtful!
6. Charlie Sheen
Charlie Sheen went off the deep end back in 2011. He got himself fired from his cushy Two and a Half Men gig, which paid $1.8 million per episode, and then went on a nationwide tour, My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not An Option, which received negative reviews. While he managed to return to the small screen in 2012 with a leading role in the TV series Anger Management, he hasn’t had a lot going since the show came to an end in 2014. He has a new movie, 9/11, coming out in September, but the trailer is already getting slammed for being offensive, so it’s unlikely that this movie will be Sheen’s comeback vehicle.
