Can You Believe These Not-So-Famous Actors Used To Be Household Names?

In the real world, most people try their hardest to obtain their dreams, taking a page out of Idina Menzel’s book and “Let(ting) it Go” when things don’t work out as planned. But some celebrities can’t seem to figure that notion out, unwilling to believe they’ve had their final curtain call.

Stars like Nick Cannon and Hilary Duff are trying to make their old television shows hip again, while Katherine Heigl swapped rom-coms for TV. But there are also stars like Cameron Diaz who walk away from Hollywood in favor of family time. Whatever the reason, these celebrities just aren’t famous anymore.

The “winning” actor Charlie Sheen isn’t necessarily making people laugh anymore. After being fired from Two and a Half Men and having his show Anger Management canceled due to his health, Sheen hasn’t been in any notable series or films. Unless you count the roller coaster and drama that fuels his day-to-day life, Sheen isn’t really winning anymore.

The actor has had a slew of legal issues, including money battles with his ex-wives and assault allegations by former co-stars, among other things. And, on top of all that, he is struggling with health issues.
