The Hollywood film industry is the most sought after in the world, the place where magic happens, whether on screens or in the capital. Making thousands of professionals fight tooth and nail for any opportunity in this environment, thus bringing incredible stories of overcoming.
However, when we talk about behind the scenes, things are not so pretty, as some of the main stars of these productions provide delicate moments that often put them on the so-called blacklist.
We recently had two emblematic cases related to this issue, with Will Smith getting involved in one of the biggest controversies of recent times, when, at the Oscars award ceremony, he slapped Chris Rock; or the cardboard starred by Ezra Miller, who was arrested in a bar after shouting various obscenities at a person singing karaoke. With both situations expected to negatively affect the careers of the two actors who, months earlier, were some of Hollywood’s most coveted movie stars.
But it’s not just Smith and Miller who have this stain on their resume, several other actors have been through situations as embarrassing as theirs. And today we are going to remember here some celebrities who almost sank their careers forever due to the confusion and controversy they caused. Some of these figures managed to turn around and are now very popular within the industry, while others ended up sinking their careers once and for all.
speaking of Charlie Sheenthe star of controversies, has also been much sought after in the movie industry, and not just for being the son of Martin Sheen, as he starred in two classics directed by Oliver Stone‘Platoon‘ and ‘Wall Street‘. However, from a very young age, he has always enjoyed throwing parties and using alcohol and drugs, publicly declaring this. He also collected several marriages and created Homeric confusions in some parties and presentations.
only with ‘Two and a half Men‘ that Sheen managed to gain notoriety again, bringing to life precisely a character that can be seen as himself. Thus becoming one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood – yet he was replaced by Ashton Kutcher in the final seasons of the show, because, according to Chuck Lorrecreator of the series, Charlie was no longer able to appear on the show.
Katherine Heigl started in the seriesGrey’s Anatomy‘, where he excelled and won an Emmy. Shortly afterward, she quarreled with the show’s producers and asked to leave the production. She quickly moved into Hollywood making romantic films that made her look like an adorable figure, but she has a reputation for badmouthing the works she participates in, often refusing to disclose the titles.
After detonating Greys, Heigl also reneged ‘Slightly Pregnant‘, the film that made her burst into cinema, accusing the work of being sexist. In several interviews, she said that she hated the film. Even with other roles, her prominent participations were waning, mainly with the fear of the producers to call her.
Exploding like one of Hollywood’s biggest stars with sensational franchises’Mad Max‘ and ‘Deadly machine’, Mel Gibson has always been one of the most respected American actors. And that only evolved when he also embarked on a filmmaking career. However, after marital confusions, being arrested for driving while intoxicated and for a recording in which he made anti-Semitic comments, the artist’s career went downhill in terms of major roles, being restricted today to B movies that are released straight to home video. A feather.
Following the controversies of his screenmate in ‘transformers‘, Megan Fox, Shia LaBeouf turned climbing and became one of the biggest bad boys in Hollywood today. The guy’s bad reputation reached the height of comparing him to Charlie Sheen, emblematic actor known for consecutive confusions. Shia has already been arrested, suffers from alcoholism and is constantly involved in scandals and controversies. He has spoken ill of Michael Bay, was accused of plagiarism, walked out in the middle of press conferences and even wore a paper bag over his head that said: “I’m not famous anymore!”.
Being one of the leading actresses of the 1990s, in the early 2000s, Winona Ryder was arrested in Beverly Hills after being accused of stealing the equivalent of five thousand dollars worth of underwear and other accessories at the department store Saks Fifth Avenue, thus becoming known as “the panty thief”. Winona was also charged with drug possession for having been caught multiple times under the influence of over-the-counter drugs. Being thus hospitalized to treat these problems, rising again many years later with the hit Netflix hit, ‘Stranger Things‘.
Lindsay Lohan was once one of Hollywood’s most prominent young actresses, hitting hits like ‘Cupid operation‘, ‘Mean Girls‘ and ‘Herbie – My Turbocharged Beetle‘, all from Disney. After that, the problems with drugs and alcohol grew, which made the controversies around her increase and so she was almost never called for new films. Mostly because she also arrived late on film sets and caused discomfort to her colleagues. Lohan went through several rehabilitation clinics until she managed to reestablish herself, making good authorial films today and signing a contract with Netflix for several features.
Johnny Depp is now synonymous with ojeriza in Hollywood, this happened after he was in a legal dispute with his ex-wife, the actress Amber Heard, for being accused of domestic violence – of which she even recorded scenes of Depp freaked out at home. In addition to losing several roles and being defenestrated in the industry, the case in point got him fired from the franchise’fantastic beasts‘, in which he played the villain Grindelwald, being replaced by Mads Mikkelsen. It’s hard to think that at another time, Depp was the highest paid and most respected guy in American cinema.
