Top 10 Most Graceful Falls From Hollywood Fame

It seems that the top headlines these days all revolve around celebrity scandals. It could be cheating spouses, botched surgeries, drugs and alcohol, or even crime sprees. Scandalous stars take over the media, we know who slept with who and who hit who. But, what about those celebrities who had one or two hits and disappeared? The ones who disappeared without a scandal, or spending all their hard-earned money?

Whatever happened to the sister from Fresh Prince of Bel Air? Or the little girl from Jurassic Park? What about the dad from Honey I Shrunk the Kids?

Those celebrities seem to slide through the cracks, and disappear from the public’s eye, as well as our minds a lot of the time. In this list, we will look at what happened to those forgotten stars, and see how they smoothly crept out of the spotlight and into a more normal life. This list contains the ones who care about family, school, and following less-publicized dreams, the ones who stayed away from jail, rehab, and negative tabloids.
