20 Once Despised Celebs, Redeemed

Cracked pays people to make smart memes. Visit the Photoplasty and Pictofacts Workshop to get in on it.

Fandom is an impressive thing. There are certain celebrities you'll always stick by, out of loyalty. And by the same token, there are others you'll never give a crap about. But occasionally a famous person who falls into that second category does something that lands them in the first category. Sometimes it's something major, but just as often it's a small thing that lands them in your good graces.

Props to burritomouth for suggesting this contest. We'd like to say he changed our opinion of him, but he's actually always been pretty cool.
