10 Movies That Fired Their Lead Actor During Filming

Since the dawn of the silver screen, Hollywood actors have been placed on such a pedestal that they are commonly referred to as American royalty. The United States may not have our own official monarchy, but thanks to the film industry, we have no shortage of kings and queens to bow down to on the red carpet. With all of the money, fame and fan worship, sometimes comes trouble. Ego trips, bankruptcies, drunken rants, and difficult behaviors have become all-too familiar with our beloved Hollywood stars. Many times, it comes down to a simple matter of height, age, or the whims of fickle movie executives, but whatever the reason, sometimes even the sexiest and most charming A-listers get handed their pink slip. Below are 10 actors that didn’t make the final cut.

10 Melora Hardin - Back to the Future

9 Andrew Garfield - The Amazing Spider-Man

8 Emily Lloyd - Husbands and Wives

7 Rick Moranis - The Breakfast Club

6 Richard Gere - The Lords of Flatbush

5 Rachelle LeFevre - The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

4 Dudley Moore - The Mirror Has Two Faces

3 Raquel Welch - Cannery Row

2 Pierce Brosnan - James Bond Franchise

1 Lindsay Lohan - The Other Side

Lindsay Lohan may be the best example of a hugely talented star crashing and burning in front of the entire world. Lohan entranced us in her duel role as twin sisters in Disney’s The Parent Trap, and became a teen sensation in films like Freaky Friday, Mean Girls and Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, and was nominated for numerous awards, winning two MTV Movie Awards. Unfortunately, it was not Lohan’s talent that garnered the media frenzy, but her downward spiral into theft, drugs, drinking, partying and needless plastic surgeries. After trying to clean up her act and stage a comeback in 2014, Lohan was fired from the set of The Other Side, a movie about a man searching for his daughter at the beginning of a zombie apocalypse. Sources say the buzz behind the scenes was that the makers of the film ultimately decided the star was no longer “bankable."
