Celebs And Their Biggest Career Mistakes


Whether it be taking a role that completely ruined their career, or filing for bankruptcy when they really didn’t need to, every action made by a celebrity is carefully viewed by the public eye. For a celebrity, there’s never a rest period, and despite being represented as people with too much money, there have been some pretty unfortunate horror stories for some less fortunate celebs.

On the flip side, some celebs make decisions that were intended to make their career more profitable, but it doesn’t always turn out that way.
