It makes us sad to proclaim that a star is washed up, but at some point, it happens to all of them. Some of them make glorious comebacks, reminding us all why we used to love them so. Some stars are simply written off too soon, while others have behind-the-scenes issues that complicate matters. There are also some who never get better at acting. Apparently, that's important.

Over time, these actors get stale in our eyes and we tire of them. In compiling this list, we refuse to suggest that there is no chance of comeback for any of those involved. In fact, we're hoping that every one of these stars can right their ships and get back to the top of their games. The truth is, the celebs herein have fallen off track somewhere along the way, and despite their best efforts, they just keep on failing. It's sad. We feel embarrassed for them. Some of them are so rich that they probably don't even care, but we do. We like them. We want to love all of their work. It's just that their new stuff is so bad that it's impossible to like.

Some of the celebrities on this list might send you into fury and denial. You might accuse us of being haters. But before you do that, please note. These aren't based on our personal opinions. The people on this list are here because the people, as a collective, hate their new stuff, whether it's acting, directing or music. The people on this list are here because they’ve fallen from a position of excellence to average…ness, or even worse than that in some cases. Many of these stars are wonderful people, nice, talented, but lately they’ve been producing garbage. Don’t shoot the messenger. All we're doing is pulling back the curtain that's been hiding these washed up SOBs. Prior fame and brilliance can keep you afloat in the celebrity only for so long. These are the sinking ones, those who are currently drowning. Here are 15 washed up celebs who keep failing.

1 Adam Sandler

Yes, yes. Adam Sandler. We've defended him before and we will once again. Adam Sandler is not nearly the villain everyone makes him out to be. Yes, many of his movies, especially lately, have been bad, but people peg him as the worst living actor, which couldn't be further from the truth. The Cobbler, The Do-Over, The Ridiculous 6, Pixels and Grown Ups 2 were all brutal films. Blended wasn't half as bad as people say and neither was… Alright, so Sandler's had a rough run in the past few years… Jesus, Funny People was 2009? OK, so the past almost-decade has been hard on the guy, but c'mon, if you let him, he can rebound. People go in to see Adam Sandler movies with a scowl on their face. Lighten up. Still, we will admit that, at this moment, he appears to be washed up and still failing. Pull up your socks Sandler and make us proud.
