20 Celebrities Who Were Big and Have Fallen: Then vs. Now
As we learned from the cinematic masterpiece that was Eternals, if you fly too close to the sun you’re gonna be burned, and, erm, something something fallen celebrities – crap, okay, this metaphor did not work like we thought it would. Whatever, nevermind, new opening: stardom is tricky. You see, celebrities are just like us, except they’re not. They’re exposed to millions of people projecting their own needs and desires for perfection onto them, and sadly those compounded needs and desires will inevitably be disappointed the moment that celebrities' needs and desires come out (not to mention as time passes and the shine of stardom becomes just struggling to get by).
Because, yeah, celebrities are like normal people. And just like it happens with normal people, there are weirdos, harassers, and just highly imperfect (and even criminal) people amongst them. And therefore, when the truth comes out (even predictably), celebrities become icky, if not felons, and they fall into disgrace. Today’s Pictofact focuses on such cases. And in fact, most of the following people had it coming, although there are also cases of untreated mental suffering and/or trauma just acting up. This makes some downfalls more like cautionary tales of the fact that sometimes celebrities get really close to true greatness – but then their sins come out, their success collapses, and they’re left there like, like…. like giant former deities petrified in the middle of the ocean as in Eternals YEAH BABY, OF COURSE WE’D RETURN TO IT, THAT IS CALLED WRITING. Alright, it’s Pictofact time!
