Whether it's perpetually bad taste, drug addiction, or simply an unpleasant personality, all famed careers are fickle, and a lot can go wrong, which is clearly the case for everyone on this list. Hollywood is quick to throw you out and nowhere on earth do you become irrelevant faster than after you’ve been fired (read that last part in a Donald Trump voice). The majority of the celebs here are never going to recover their former glory either, which has to make the blow even worse.

If you’re ever having a bad day, just bookmark this list and come back to it at a later time. It will surely cheer you up. After all, isn’t it always just a little fun to observe how the mighty have fallen? Perhaps we should pass it on to the Clinton family because Hillary is definitely still having a bad day. With that, here are 15 celebs whose careers are currently in the dumpster (and are likely to stay that way for the foreseeable future).

15 Glenn From The Walking Dead

14 Ron Weasley, er uh Rupert Grint

Part of the trio of friends in the iconic Harry Potter series, Ron Weasley needs no introduction. But what he has done since Harry Potter that is worth mentioning? Both Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson have done some pretty decent movies or at least have remained relevant in Hollywood, and have even separated themselves from their childhood roles (okay, Watson will always be Hermione to us). But we never hear about Weasley. The last time he made headlines was actually when people were questioning his “disheveled” appearance with his dark eye bags, and particularly how he looked nothing like his former self. We ask again: what happened to Grint? The projection for child stars is never good, so this has us a bit concerned. Is he on his way to becoming the next Macaulay Culkin - the next Lindsay Lohan?

13 Macaulay Culkin


12 Megan Fox

11 Tom Cruise

10 Kate Upton

Kate Upton had a sharp rise in popularity in 2011 and 2012 following her appearances in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, spanning many Google searches and the purchases of many racy calendars, but we hear so little of this former “It” girl these days.

9  9. Lindsay Lohan


Lindsay Lohan had a lot of potential after Mean Girls, but a decade was unfortunately lost to drugs, alcohol and an exceptionally long list of run-ins with the law. That list is so long that it almost matches that infamous list of all the Hollywood men she has supposedly slept with. But no sl*t shaming here, of course. That is actually quite an impressive list if we do say so ourselves. She may not be particularly desired by Hollywood’s casting directors but she is certainly desired by all of Hollywood’s hottest men.

8 Chevy Chase

7 David Hasselhoff

Now, David Hasselhoff is not particularly held in high regard, but he was popular back in the day, especially in Europe, and he has also landed himself a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the Most Watched Man on TV. Since his glory days on Baywatch, he has had a few cameos where he parodies himself - never a particularly good sign for your career. That said, we will give him some credit because it does show a certain degree of self-awareness.

6 John Travolta

Yeah, that face used to be pretty famous. No, not the one he's wearing now. That face barely looks human. No, this isn't a reference to Face/Off, that movie he starred in with the equally talented Nicolas Cage. Presumably botched plastic surgery has done a lot to make John Travolta difficult to watch on the big screen these days, despite his reputation as a heartthrob in his younger years.

5 Adam Sandler

Adam Sandler’s days of movie-goers lining up at the box office are long behind him. Sure, he had some people turn out for 2013’s Grown Ups 2, but people just aren’t showing up like they used to. His most recent film this year, whatever it was called, was utterly forgettable. 2015’s The Ridiculous 6, a film Sandler co-wrote, managed to garner a very rare 0% from Rotten Tomatoes and was also swept in controversy with a bunch of native actors leaving the set in protest of the film’s portrayal of Apache culture. 2014’s The Cobbler was a box office bomb. Before that, 2011’s Jack and Jill got some of the worst reviews ever.

4 Nicholas Cage

3 Mel Gibson

Remember back in the day when Mel Gibson was at the tippy top of the A-List of Hollywood celebrities? Lethal Weapon is still one of our favorite movies ever, and The Patriot and Braveheart were great movies that also happened to be box office mega-hits. And sure, Signs may be a Shyamalan movie, but we can't deny that it really wasn't bad! We love Joaquin Phoenix, which may play a part in our opinion, but the movie was subtle and the alien presence was low-key and effective. And Passion of the Christ, which he both directed and starred in was a revelation among religious moviegoers.

2 Johnny Depp

1 Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton was almost guaranteed to go down in history as the first female president of the United States. Instead, she lost to a man with exactly zero experience in politics, and reputation for being racist, prejudiced, and a potential sex offender. Does anyone ever recover from that kind of shame and embarrassment? For all we know, Clinton’s future might include sitting in a jail cell, with the latest update regarding Trump’s famous promise being that, “Well, I’ll tell you what I’m going to do, I’m going to think about it,” per his first televised interview since becoming president-elect. Since the election, Clinton has been “inconsolable.” Now that her position as Secretary of State will be replaced, what will she do next? She has already been reduced to a woman walking aimlessly in the woods alongside her dog via an article that was circling around the net.
