Hollywood has a reputation for corrupting people – just look at stars like Lindsay Lohan. She was young, naïve and full of promise when she moved to Tinsletown; however, it didn’t take her long to become completely corrupted. Some celebrities are totally aware that this can happen to young individuals growing up in the spotlight, which is why they abandon Hollywood and move somewhere more low key to raise their families. Others just don’t like living in a fishbowl, so they too leave. More celebrities should take their families out of Hollywood and give them a chance to have normal lives; however, for now, we only have these 7 celebrities who were brave enough to leave the spotlight for their families.
7. Shania Twain
Shania Twain left the spotlight at the height of her fame to move to Switzerland to start a family with her husband at the time Robert “Mutt” Lange. The couple was looking to live a much quieter life. In 2001, she gave birth to Eja, their only child. Unfortunately, she didn’t know a soul in Switzerland. Eventually she made one friend, Marie-Anne Marie-Anne; however, it didn’t last. After several years of living in Switzerland, her only friend ran off with her husband.
The country singing sensation still lives in Switzerland in the town of Corseaux with her son Eja and her second husband Frédéric Thiébaud, who just happens to be the ex husband of her former friend, Marie-Anne. She also continues to tour and even had a two-year residency in Las Vegas. She really likes Switzerland though, much more than any other place. According to her, it isn’t that different from her home country of Canada.Helga Esteb / Shutterstock.com
