Hollywood is pretty fickle. There are stars who constantly grace the red carpet, even though many people wonder how these celebrities got famous in the first place. There are also actors who are pretty decent performers, but can’t seem to get work after their debut roles. Of course, some of these celebrities don’t leave Hollywood without a fight. A number of these celebrities have starred in other movies since their big breaks, but the films just haven’t gotten much buzz. Some of these one-hit wonders get reality shows that end up being short-lived. Others agree to star as cast members in other reality shows, which also doesn't always last long.

There are also a few one-hit-wonder celebrities who accept the fact that Hollywood is no longer interested, and go on to live pretty normal lives. Sure, they’re sometimes recognized in public, and they often take the opportunity to take pictures and interact with fans who remember them from “that one movie.” Sometimes, the fans they’ve taken photos with will post the images on social media, and semi-revive the celebrity’s career for a short period of time.

Ever wonder what happened to the star you never saw again? Here are 12 celebrities that were dumped after just one major role.

4 Patrick Fugit

3 Alicia Silverstone

2 Cuba Gooding, Jr.

1 Shannon Elizabeth

Shannon Elizabeth will always be known as the hot girl who starred in American Pie and became a sex symbol overnight in 1999. She was the foreign exchange student who Jason Biggs’ character was completely in “love” with. However, the actress, who is a native of Texas, learned that Hollywood can fall out of love with actors pretty quickly. She appeared in American Pie 2 in 2001, and American Reunion in 2012, the sequels to American Pie, but these movies are pretty much the only way she’s stayed relevant. Elizabeth also starred in the (terrible) romantic comedy A Novel Romance, in 2011, and in the Christmas film Golden Winter with Haylie Duff.
