Some celebrities seem to take their success for granted. They totally forget that Hollywood can be incredibly fickle and completely unforgiving of any mistake it deems unfit. These celebrities seem to go about their business without thinking, making big mistakes that can only totally derail their careers. We call this career suicide. These celebrities obviously aren’t stupid – they must have some understanding that they what they are doing is going to damage their careers, but they do it anyway. Some of these celebrities have managed to rebound while others haven’t been so lucky. Here is a list of 9 celebrities who have been guilty of committing career suicide!
9. Anne Heche
Anne Heche was an up-and-coming actress in the mid to late ‘90s. She went from working on soap operas to landing supporting roles in movies and seemed well on her way to becoming a leading lady; however, once she began publicly dating Ellen Degeneres, her career cooled considerably. “People said ‘You’re not getting a job because you’re gay,’” Heche said. “How could that destroy my career? I still can’t wrap my head around it.” Following the break up, Heche had a nervous breakdown. Although she made a full recovery, her once-promising film career didn’t. These days, she mostly works on the small screen.s_bukley / Shutterstock.com
