Top 10 actors whose careers were ruined by one role
The fate in the film industry stays unknown and is not the same for all. While some artists overturn with ruined careers after back to back flop releases, for some, it just takes one!
For a cause of either poor acting, scripting, or bad visuals, ruined is ruined and to pull the movie career up straight again takes a lot!
Below are ten actors who suffered an ill phase taking their careers onto a negative path:
Ben Affleck – Gigli
The early 2000s saw Ben Affleck, who was a teen crush for many of the ladies. But the actor and Jennifer Lopez once had a chance to each other and worked together in Gigli. The 2003 movie proved unfavorable to both the artists with a sour outlook on their movie career.
A year later, the duo- Affleck, and Lopez, were back again with Jersey Girl, the result of which wasn’t so luring as well. Soon after the shattered hopes, Affleck decided to hoop in with a break from his movie career.
Affleck, years later, took his entry into the industry not as an actor but as a director. He succeeded better in this field and eventually made it to winning the Oscars 2013 in Best Picture. Affleck surely didn’t succeed as a good actor, but a director.
John Travolta – Battlefield Earth
Ruined careers can touch any artist despite talent. It’s all about luck.
The actor John Travolta has personally witnessed nonlinear ups and downs. ‘Saturday night fever’ had many parts in it that shined Travolta’s talent for he was a good actor. But his popularity gradually decreased in the 1980s and again bragged with it a decade later in the movie ‘Pulp Fiction.’
Again, the positive move of the actor’s movie career didn’t stay consistent for long. This time, it was due to the movie ‘Battlefield Earth’ where he was given an alien team leader’s role.
Mike Myers – The Love Guru
The journey of Mike Myers took a gradual step to conclude as a broke actor career. Fans who haven’t smelled him for long finally took a chance on a Netflix comedy show.
After the Saturday night Live and Wild movies, Mike was everyone’s favorite actor. For he is such a good actor, the fame he received was deserving. Even the assumptions for him to stay constricted with the fame were given after having a good time with Shrek and Austin powers.
But nothing of all happened in real. Instead, the one role actor in the self-written and produced movie ‘The Love Guru’ strayed him from his popularity in 2008. The awful reviews and a low box office revenue says that the people were not in love with it, perhaps turning away from Mike and some of the colleagues’ ruined careers.
Jennifer Love Hewitt — Jewtopia
In the 90s and 2000s, Jennifer Love Hewitt has surfaced as a frequent emerging good actor, but the actual fame didn’t hit until her role in I Know What You Did Last Summer.
But barely was it known that in the year 2013, a bash of ruined careers was on the way. A movie with multiple stereotypical roles and awful scripting, Jewtopia resulted in Hewitt’s short career.
After the movie, she is only seen in series or as a role actor rather than playing in more big movies.
Chris Klein – Rollerball
For Chris Klein to overturn as a not much broke actor career despite failing to meet the needs is certain after his play in the American Pie 1999. But that doesn’t come as a guarantee for career securement.
Rollerball was stated with plans favorable for the actor’s career that didn’t fulfill any of it. Even that sounds accurate with John McTiernan as its director. The assumptions, however, remained as assumptions.
Soon after the low stats of Rollerball, Klein worked hard, yet none of his efforts came out as ineffectiveness. His poorly imaged ruined careers for back to back movie flops has decided to stick as it is.
Alicia Silverstone – Batman & Robin
While ‘clueless’ brought Alicia good fame as a one role actor, the thought that she might have faced a negative aspect of the industry was a prediction that came to none.
Two years after the mainstream of Alicia’s comedy, everything poured wrong. Her attainment of touching perspectives of ruined careers began. Batman & Robin has stepped as the biggest flop of the time.
Geena Davis — Cutthroat Island
Cutthroat Island was a lousy charm leading to a broke actor career. Before the downfall in 1995, Thela & Louise brought Geena multiple awards in 1991. At the box office, the estimated loss is over 88 Million US dollars.
After the significant downfall, one role actor, Geena, is now only offered in rare seasons.
Demi Moore — G.I. Jan
Striptease rendered Demi with numerous criticism and terrible reviews in 1996. Kicking to her ruined movie roles to ruined careers began when she received the Golden Raspberry Award.
G.I Jane led Demi to first being nominated and then getting the award for the worst actress. That particular movie was a whole full stop bragging to her with a tag of a broke actor career.
Madonna – Swept Away
Madonna, already being a music star, attained to become an acting star right after her movie debut in Seeking Susan. But a wave of ruined careers was on its way, which touched her music life to a cm only or even less.
The flipping of popularity charts happened with her in Swept Away in 2002.
The box office hardly made it a million dollars, and we see why her acting was terminated as ruined careers.
Tom Green – Freddy Got Fingered
Tom Green, who encountered success in a rap artist’s journey, had no idea he’d get a string of ruined careers in the acting career.
Firstly, The Top Green Show that was launched on television in 1999, bounced back with success.
Soon after, Green was offered a role if Freddy Got Fingered planned to be out in 2001. Poorly curated, the movie gained a huge loss at the box office.
Until now, he’s very little seen in movies or any shows buy turned as a Canada based comedian showcasing skills mostly on YouTube.
