15 Celebrities Who Will Never Make a Comeback in Hollywood!

13. Brooke Mueller

When Brooke Mueller married Charlie Sheen back in 2008, they were considered one of Hollywood’s golden couples. Unfortunately, after the couple’s crazy Christmas together in 2009 where Sheen was arrested, Mueller’s star began to fade. Information about numerous DUIs came to light and, since then, Mueller has been in and out of rehab regularly. Even after being involved in Paris Hilton’s reality show, “The World According to Paris,” Mueller continued her descent. We think she is so far gone that she will never make it back.

    I wouldn’t worry about Demi Moore. If she wants to do a film all she has to do is say so. Her absense from Hollywood has been on her terms. No need for a ‘comeback’. Hardly in the same league as most of the other people on this list.

    There are definitely some missing names.

    Vivica Fox (Soul Food); Amanda Bynes (What I Like About You); Pamela Anderson and David Hasslehoff (Baywatch); Isaiah Washington (Greys Anatomy); Fantasia Barrino (American Idol); Lela Rashon (Waiting to Exhale);

    AND…any BH 90210 or Saved by the Bell cast member not named Tiffany Amber Thiesen or Mario Lopez;

    Macaulay Culkin and Haley Joel Osment come to mind. Elijah Wood, too, though not as bleak a future. Child stars who got ugly or creepy looking as adults generally fade into oblivion, drugs and alcohol.

    Demi is fine, she’s the object of no one with half a brain’s pity. Ashton is a child, and thankfully, has moved on. That being said, this isn’t the nicest article, and lots are missing from the list. All I know is, as long as the Jacksons are banned from writing family tell all books, I’m happy!

  10. Cheryl J. Brock

    Never say never. Robert Downey Jr once would have made this list and his situation was about the same as Lindsay Lohan’s is now. I can’t help but hope for her situation to end the same as his has, But I am a sucker for a good redemption story.

    I wouldn’t put money on Lindsey Lohan never making a comeback. Certainly not Demi Moore either. As someone else mentioned, Gibson will be in Expendables 3 this year and his last film was not The Beaver but the very entertaining How I Spent My Summer Vacation.

    Not really sure what you’re trying to convey in your post, but, my saying Ashton is a child was in the maturity sense, not his age. The way he handled Demi in the end was very immature, which is why I said “thankfully he’s moved on.” You misunderstood my comment.

    And yet the gossip press still wastes everyone’s time with breathless reports and photos of the latest from these do nothing nobodies. I really, truly, wish they’d just be allowed to sink into obscurity, along with the Kardashians, of course.

    As for Demi Moore and Lindsey Lohan… they can’t get acting work, so much for them. Mel Gibson has gotten a couple of jobs, but no one will risk hiring him for anything substantial, which is too bad in a way as he’s still capable of good acting, but he’s box office poison. Also, he hasn’t recanted any of his misbehavior. Hollywood and fans forgive, but an effort has to be made.

  18. David Adler

    Mel Gibson is one of the most successful actors and directors of all-time. He is probably worth a half billion dollars. He can do whatever he wants when he wants

    Seems like many of the people on this list are there because of battles with drugs and alcohol – and being in rehab. Most of them far too young for you to make these sort of judgements – many of the most talented artists, actors, musicians throughout history have fought their way back from addiction to achieve true greatness afterwards. This is a mean-spirited article hoping for the worst rather than recovery. Shame.

    A lot of it is how we define “comeback”, and “relevant”.

    Those people I have listed may have worked recently, but they will likely never be as big as they once were.

    By your standards, many of the people listed by this site shouldn’t even be listed, so there’s got to be another standard – one I think is more in line with my thinking. Nobody claims that those other names are broke, or that they don’t still have relevant products. Its more the case that they won’t be the big stars they once were.

    I define comeback as the following: having once been an “A-Lister” – or something close to it – and commanded steady seven-figure earnings for more than two years, then fallen from the limelight involuntarily (i.e., drugs, crime, health issues, deteriorated beauty, etc.), only to reach similar or greater relevance than before experienced.

  31. Run

    January 19, 2014 at 2:14 am

    Fantasia’s biggest moment ever was her Idol win. Although talented, she just doesn’t have the charisma to be a Hollywood A-Lister.

    Her affair/scandal proved that. She doesn’t understand media or how to manipulate it, and its clear that she doesn’t have the right people around her…family, handlers, etc.

    No matter how many Grammy nods she gets, she’s never going to be in the same class with Alicia Keys, Beyoncé, Rihanna, or Jennifer Hudson.

    And notice that they have all misstepped in some way – Keys had her own scandal…stealing someone’s husband – J-Hud has continued to live with her baby’s father unwed, Beyoncé and Jay-Z have behaved in almost narcissistic ways, and Rihanna is perceived in some circles as being “too loose”, to put it gently.

    But those stars turn that stuff into more fame and money, whereas Fantasia’s missteps (affair, suicide attempt, etc.) just leave people scratching their heads. She gets nothing positive out of anything she does.

    She just isn’t media candy and never will be. Some people have that extra “something” that keeps people interested, and some don’t.

  43. Kathleen

    There never seems to be anyone, ever, who is incapable of making a comeback. It depends on many factors: whether people have straightened themselves out and prove it in their work, the willingness of their fans to give them another chance, and no way around this last: just plain luck.

    A true comeback for Fantasia would be for people to discuss her the way they were discussing her right after she won Idol, and that’s never going to happen.

    Fantasia is not a star, she’s a very talented, sometimes sexy, undereducated, uninformed train wreck waiting to happen.

    I laid it out above: the woman doesn’t “get it”! She is mistake-prone and undereducated yet has no understanding of how to grow her brand.

    She comes across as a ghetto simpleton, to be honest. She can be styled to look really pretty and has been blessed with a fantastic voice. Her problem is handling her personal life, keeping her money, keeping the right company, and giving interviews.

    I don’t think she will ever generate the buzz she had after Idol. That was her peak.

  64. kidtrick

    February 6, 2014 at 10:38 pm

    Gibson can make it back with a good movie. He is a good actor so he can play different roles. Moore could make it back if she grows up and dates someone her own age. Watching her trying to fit in with teenagers is cringe worthy.

  65. David Adler

    February 6, 2014 at 10:41 pm

    Right. You’re making my point. It’s silly to include people so successful that comebacks don’t really matter.

  66. Stanley Steamer

    February 6, 2014 at 10:43 pm

    Too bad Justin Bieber wouldn’t fade into obscurity.

  67. Stanley Steamer

    February 6, 2014 at 10:48 pm

    If the benchmark of success is say ten million dollars, does that mean a celebrity only needs to make one big film to live on forever? Everyone gauges you by what you are currently doing not prior success. Gibson is filthy rich but he is fading into oblivion along with most people on this list.

  68. David Adler

    February 6, 2014 at 11:43 pm

    I’m dropping this. If you look at how many folks “liked” my comment, it seems most agree. Putting Mel Gibson in the same article with those people is like putting Michael Jackson in a Justin Beiber article. Apples and Oranges. I’m not sure what planet you live on, but on Earth, 58 year old multimillionaires and billionaires have earned the right to drift away. They require zero validation

  69. Stanley Steamer

    February 7, 2014 at 12:51 am

    I am not arguing with you but the article was about stars that are fading away. Sure he along with most of the people in this article have a degree of fame and fortune. No one requires validation once they reach a certain level of success BUT that is not what the article is about.

    True you cannot compare Michael Jackson a dead child molester to Justin Bieber a douchebag teen age star.

  70. David Adler

    February 7, 2014 at 1:12 am

    Oh boy… Ok.. We are not even in the the same universe. I defend Jackson. Sleazy accusers, no evidence, etc. I was speaking about their talent, stage presence and industry reverence. No comparison. But I can tell you have digested headlines and accepted them as what is. Your opinion of both Gibson and Jackson tell me that you’ve accepted the most sensationalized tabloid headlines, and formed your conclusions. We have no reason to be talking

  71. Stanley Steamer

    February 7, 2014 at 1:20 am

    No evidence? Yes it’s amazing what millions of dollars in hush money will do for you. Kind of like the hush money the catholic church pays to protect diddling priests. Gibson is a racist lunatic and it has been proven that is not opinion.

  72. David Adler

    February 7, 2014 at 1:24 am

    Oh but did he pay off the FBI? So let’s do the math. First accuser in 1993. And only one or two since- after the huge settlement.. Hmm. The priests on the other hand sometimes had 50 or more accusers… I guess Jackson was really good at keeping all of his victims under wraps. Because by all accounts, he surrounded himself with thousands of kids in his lifetime. Yet, we sit here 20 years later with an acquittal and two or three sleezy accusers.. Sorry your Catholic Church analogy doesn’t hold up.

  73. Stanley Steamer

    February 7, 2014 at 7:58 am

    Anyone can be bought for a price: FBI or whatever.
    If he did nothing wrong, why did he pay the kids anything?

  74. David Adler

    February 7, 2014 at 11:57 am

    Because his insurance company recommended settlement so he could get on with touring and recording. Again, I don’t debate issues with people who are just regurgitating the same old news soundbites. There’s more to the story than what you read in tabloids and the evening news. For example, did you know the father of that accuser wanted Jackson to fund a film for him and Jackson declined. Did you know there is a tape of the father planning extortion? Did you know that same father commited suicide within 2 months of Jackson’s death? Did you know that hundreds of kids that participated in the so called sleepovers denied any such activity

  75. Stanley Steamer

    February 7, 2014 at 11:21 pm

    If there was a tape planning extortion, he should have sued the father or at the very least paid them zero dollars. Bottom line, he was a fruitcake that had kids over to his house for so called “innocent” sleepovers. I blame the parents more so than Jackson but he should have known better.

  76. David Adler

    February 7, 2014 at 11:38 pm

    I agree whole heartedly that it was bizarre and opening himself up to problems. With that said, I truly believe his motives were good. We all tend to fixate on what we don’t have in life. Jackson had everything that this world had to offer except a thriving childhood. He became fixated on that. But by all accounts, he ‘d break down and cry at thought of children suffering. And backed that up wit hundreds of millions in donations. We’ll never know what happened behind closed doors. But I try to keep an open mind because he set himself up as a very easy target. That doesn’t mean he was guilty of any a use.

  77. David Adler

    February 7, 2014 at 11:39 pm

    I meant to say that it doesn’t mean he’s guilty of any abuse

  78. Stanley Steamer

    February 7, 2014 at 11:50 pm

    My mother always commented that he never had a childhood so I agree with your comments. Most of these child stars are effed up as adults and he was a prime example of one.

  79. Euripides

    February 9, 2014 at 4:56 am

    Wow, this is a little harsh. Pronouncing someone dead in advance seems cruel especially when some of these people must believe there is life left in their careers.

    I’m sure Mr. Fame10 Staff (what? No one wanted to put their name on this hatchet job?) got it right on at least a few of his (their?) victims, but there is no backlash if they are proven wrong.

    As someone who works in the industry, we never know if the current project will be our last until we decide to retire or finally get “the diagnosis”. I may never make another movie but then Mr Fame10 Staff may never write another article either!

    My vote is for Charlie Sheen, who is a laughing stock, and hoped-for to be banished: any and all Kardashians. Mel will be back, and so will Demi. If people can forgive a pig like Bill Clinton (who acts like he’s a Hollywood star), then they can forgive Mel.

  86. Rumionemore

    February 16, 2014 at 7:46 pm

    About five years ago Lohan could have had it all. She was good-looking and talented. Now she’s brittle-looking and looks at least a decade older than she is. What production company would take a risk with her?

  87. Rumionemore

    February 16, 2014 at 7:47 pm

    Elvis, too. CBS didn’t even run news of his death until hours after it occurred because they thought he was a washed-up singer. His fans disagreed, and so did all other media.

  88. SalemHanna

    February 16, 2014 at 11:13 pm

    Maybe not a major studio but I bet a so-called ‘smaller’ production company (Miramax etc) making a film with an up-and-coming edgy director will one day throw her a lifeline, the same way Tarantino once threw Travolta a lifeline.

  89. Rumionemore

    February 17, 2014 at 3:18 pm

    It’s possible, but Travolta had been a major TV star whose career faded for awhile. He was offered a really juicy movie role, and he was set. Lindsey’s public presence has been built on PR set-ups: drunk driving incidents, perp walks and nudies in has-been publications. The Kardashians are sort of taking that track, too, because they are fading – traffic accidents, fights outside clubs, etc. You know, really classy stuff.

    Janice Dickinson can go around telling anyone who will listen that she was the “first supermodel” but that does not make it true. Suzy Parker was the first and best.

    Agreed: The Right Part Forgives Decades of Wrongs;
    Travolta was done for Awhile Until Tarantino- after which he did some of his best work:

    Neil Patrick Harris
    Paula Abdul
    Drew Barrymore
    Ben Affleck (Gigli- Daredevil Anyone?)
    Alec Baldwin & Alec Baldwin & Alec Baldwin
    Mayim Bialik (Blossom?)
    Jimmy Fallon
    Betty White (as the last Golden Girl Standing has almost literally returned from the dead)

    Agreed on NPH; personally, I think it was the appearance in the first “Harold & Kumar” film that really got him rolling again. However, as much as I like her, Mayim’s “comeback” has really been only one role. True, the role (and its series) is very hot, but she might be in danger of typecasting. As for Betty White, I would disagree. Yes, she has been in a lot of roles, but has any of them amounted to anything significant? How many of her recent series have been cancelled?

  114. OpposingVue

    March 24, 2014 at 2:03 am

    Billionaire? How do you figure that? Yes, some of his films have been very successful, but that doesn’t mean that he got very much of it, nor that he managed to keep it. Don’t forget that Hollywood lifestyles have extravagant costs. Add to that all the lawyers fees that he has had to pay out over the years for divorces as well as his criminal cases, then it might be asked just how much he has left.

  115. Nancy Hall

    March 25, 2014 at 5:51 am

    She was in Margin Call (2011) and she was great. What this article means is that she won’t be in any big, bloated overproduced blockbusters any more. Being in movies is another matter entirely.

    The fact that you would even write an “article” like this proves you know nothing about “Hollywood” or the entertainment industry. Only death guarantees there will be no comeback. I’m not saying it’s likely for these people, of course, but *anything* is possible. It just takes the right project and anyone can come back from anything.

  124. seriously

    April 10, 2014 at 4:56 am

    YES!!! I need the fame 10 staff to stop trying to out people’s careers!!! People like who they like. Mel can make a movie tomorrow and I will go see it!! Annd the theater would be packed!!!! This list is over exaggerated!!

  125. Jacqueline R.

    She was also in Flawless, and gave a perfect performance. She’s a very good actress.

    This list is 90% women. Sadly it isnt a biased list, because the truth is men have a huge advantage in Hollywood. Female actresses face much stricter scrutiny as to age and looks. The only women immune from comeback glory tend to be actresses with musical talent (see Cher). Hollywood is mostly unforgiving towards women once the beauty fades.

    GOD, is she UGLY!! i didn’t even like her, as Jenny Wilder, in the 9th season of Little House on the Prairie! ((i own the 9th season… NEVER liked Shannon, NEVER will like her, eather!!

    Lindsay Lohan hasn’t done anything beyond being tabloid fodder for a decade. Even before that, she was in forgettable pablum shows. A remake of “Herbie the Love Bug?” With her, it’s probably a different love bug.

    Mel Gibson has been bats__t crazy for years, but he’s got a core following that would go see him squirt ketchup on a hamburger.

    Janice Dickerson? Holy catfish – she makes Joan Rivers look natural.

    Shannen Daughtery jumped the shark when she started hawking career schools.

    And Courtney Love? When DID she have a career beyond being drunk and stupid?

    I agree. Mel is not done, and if he is it’s only because he wants to be done. Mel can still fill a theater. He a wonderful actor and I enjoy his movies !!

    my dad and all his pals will watch anything Mel is involved with because they love his politics.

  134. Newbie

    April 28, 2014 at 1:39 pm

    The women I know didn’t watch him in the “Legal” movie series because he was a good actor. They watched him because they thought he was cute. Between age, alcoholism and his ugly personality now being stamped on his face, (one’s face, indeed, “freezes like that”) he has lost his looks.

  135. Newbie

    April 28, 2014 at 1:40 pm

    “Blossom” is a star on multi Emmy award winning comedy and has been for several years. Heard of The Big Bang Theory? It’s great!

    How can u say that about Lindsey Lohan, does no one remember Robert Downey Jr being huge in the 80′s and then falling so far from grace he was literally unemployable, no one would touch him, even when he was sober because it always ended in a relapse and for insurance reasons as much as for all the other reasons it’s difficult to work with an addict, no one was willing to even try hiring him, no matter how good he was or how much potential he had in the past, but after almost 2 decades he has made not just a comeback, but one of the biggest comebacks I’ve ever seen!! He’s über famous again and in one of the most money making movie franchises out there, the dude is “Iron man” for god sake!!! Lindsey can still totally turn it around, even if she isn’t done with the drug/rehab rollercoaster yet, and she may actually be done, she has a new show and is trying to stay out of trouble, so it’s definitely possible, in Hollywood, anything is possible. I’m not a huge Linsey Lohan fan, but I am a huge fan or the comeback and of Robert Downey Jr, and I do remember that Ms Lohan’s acting was very good before she started with all the drug stuff, so she deserves the benefit of the doubt, the potential is there for a comeback, but she needs to get sober and get back to where her talents lie, then she has a very good chance of pulling a “Robert Downey Jr” and becoming marketable again!!

    There is gone and there is gone. Elizabeth Berkley’s career was supposedly killed by Showgirls. Her career after Showgirls has been nothing but supporting and guest roles but she is still working and working frequently. So while she is not the star everyone thought she would be, she is successful as a character actor.

    Then there is Kevin Costner who famously made some of the worst movies, critically and financially, in Hollywood such as The Postman and Waterworld. However he is now starring in two recent movies that are doing well.

    I would not be so quick to write off many of the celebrities listed here. Especially Mel Gibson who is like Costner, rich enough with a solid fan base who could still make a comeback.

    Mel Gibson OMG he is the best and not just for those Lethal Weapon movies ;) Riggs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL he exposed the boy loving zionist fake jew trash that calls itself hollywood for what is it, chosen phonies in motion. If Mel had declared his love of Israel banged the war drum of Iran and cheering on the wiping out of the good people of palestine, well he could have raped murdered and even done cannibalism that night, case dismissed, fake jews @ work! When will Amerikkka wake up to what they are doing to you all. When? The planetary patriot is here!

    May 13, 2014 at 9:49 am

    All I can say is, if not for “The Expendables” this list could easily be twice as long, lol.

    Ok, one more thing: I’m pretty sure Demi Moore could snap her fingers and land a major role in a big budget film. Her low visibility of late is probably a personal choice. And as for Mel Gibson… well, there’s always “The Expendables IV.”

  144. sgakaz

    May 14, 2014 at 4:37 pm

    Should never say never Robert Downey jr would of been on this list a few years back

    Same here. I always think of RDJr. when I think of LL. the only difference is that he was allowed the luxury of being out of the spotlight during his lowest lows unlike her. Mass media (Twitter, etc) makes that impossible. One can hope.

    Mayim Bialik=Big Bang Theory and she left early on to get her degree, she has a PhD in something like neuroscience. Jimmy Fallon hosts the Tonight Show and is awesome. Neil=How I Met Your Mother.
