Sometimes stars disappear from the big screen, well-known and respected actors who have completely ceased to appear. There are several reasons for this and here you can see some examples.
Brendan Frases was already well known when he became a superstar at the turn of the century in 2000 with his performance in the Mummy films. But after he came forward and accused Philip Berk, former president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), of sexual harassment, everything changed.
Offers for roles disappeared and Fraser disappeared for several years until he had a breakthrough with his role in The Whale, which came out last year. The role is completely different from the one Fraser became famous for in previous years and he won awards for the role.
Randy Quaid acted in many films and was a highly respected and sought after actor, especially in comedies. For example, he was unforgettable as Uncle Ed in the National Lampoon films. But in 2007, while filming The Merry Wives of Windsor, he assaulted a staff member, used violence, and it went downhill afterward.
It didn’t help that his wife, Evi, started sending threatening letters to the various employees during the filming of the film.
Quad was fined $81,000 and has barely been seen on the big screen since.
Corey Feldman was a popular child star and later gained popularity for starring in films aimed at teens.
But when he came forward in 2013 and said he had been sexually abused by high-profile figures in the film industry, he was blacklisted. He further stated that he was not the only one to experience such abuse, there are many child abusers in power in Hollywood and many other child stars have experienced the same.
Nobody took him seriously at the time, it was still four years after the #metoo revolution and Feldman got into the drug world.
He will have recovered and is now working as a musician.
Mo’nique shot to international fame after winning an Oscar for her performance in the movie Precious. But then the trouble started.
She refused to participate in promotional work at the film’s press conferences unless paid for it, and made outrageous demands for facilities. She was considered extremely difficult to work with, then Hollywood bosses got fed up and Mo’nique has hardly been offered roles since.
Actress Sondra Locke had a promising career for many years and was nominated for an Oscar. She had an affair with Clint Eastwood for 14 years, which ended badly, to say the least.
After the breakup, no role was offered to her. She was also a screenwriter and sent over 30 ideas to movie studios but never received a response.
She was sure Clint Eastwood was to blame, being powerful in Hollywood. It must be considered likely that he had a hand in the case, given his low confession at the end.
Wesley Snipes was a star, a superstar in fact for his roles in the Blade trilogy and White Men Can’t Jump. But he made the mistake of not paying taxes and was sentenced to three years in prison. It has not been seen on the big screen since.
Kirk Cameron was a child star and starred in popular shows like Growing Pains and Like Father Like Son.
But his extreme religious and political views began to cause trouble on set. Cameron shunned the Bible so to speak and refused to act in scenes containing behavior he considered sinful, such as kissing between unmarried people.
He was expelled and now he only acts in films aimed at devout evangelists.
Vince Vaughn became a superstar with roles in The Wedding Crashers, The Breakup and Zoolander. He was usually in the role of the funny halibut, which he eventually got tired of and started demanding different roles.
He didn’t get much attention for his performance in such films, and so Vaughn began to disappear from the media pages and the job postings dried up.
However, it is still working, as shown in the photos on IMDB
