15 Washed Up Celebrities Who Faded Away From Limelight


As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. The entertainment industry has been a home to the most gifted stars ever to enthrall us on the silver screen. Failing to stand the test of time, it can be concluded that not everyone can remain relevant since day one like Jack Nicholson or Brad Pitt. The following are few of the many washed up celebrities who have faded away from the limelight:

15. John Travolta

As a rookie in Hollywood, everyone knew that there was something special about John Travolta. Reaching super stardom in early twenties, the actor became one of the youngest performers to be nominated for an Academy Award.

Due to a cruel twist of fate, Travolta began declining movies which became commercially successful for the critical failure ones; horribly damaging his career. His career revived after more than a decade when he starred in Pulp Fiction in 1994 but went downhill again.

14. Mike Myers

Best known for his performance in Saturday Night Live from 1989 to 1995, Mike Myers was one of the most exiting comedians of his time. Eventually starring in successful comedy films such as Wayne’s World and Austin Powers series, he was a certified star.

In 2008, Myers produced, wrote and starred in Love Guru and it remains his biggest regret. The movie was so bad that it killed his career in an instant. Receiving overwhelmingly negative reviews, Myers has appeared in hardly three movies after its release.
