Matt Lauer fell hard and fast.

#2 Amanda Bynes

Amanda Bynes too, I feel. Maybe not a serious actress but comedic for sure. u/Karen_from_AP

#3 DMX

Still love the guys music but he’s fell upon hard times. He’s meant to be worth -10 million and may be going to jail again. u/KyBrMo2000

#4 Lance Armstrong

Only people not interested in the sport was ever in doubt. Everyone else just looked at the data and knew Armstrong was doping the shit out of it. Miguel Indurain was the last of the old schoolers that got away with blatant abuse. Anosognosia

#5 Charlie Sheen

Surprised no one is mentioning Charlie Sheen. The stuff and drama he did in less than a year is quite surprising. u/Helicon7

#6 Katherine Heigl

Obvious answers like Bill Cosby, Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein, etc...

...but my answer for this is actually Katherine Heigl (don't think I saw her name in this thread yet)... She went from being in the top movies & TV shows in the mid-2000's to basically being blacklisted by the industry for a while there because she chose to drop out of the Emmy Race for her role on Grey's Anatomy because she thought the writing sucked and called the writers of the show out on it... She was gone the next season... She could have been in any role she wanted beforehand and now people didn't want to work with her.

Her career over the next few years was shitty roles in shittier movies and a few TV commercials... Big 180 turn around of events based on her choice to trash talk her peers on her TV show... Reddit

#7 Robin Thicke

Not the biggest, but Robin Thicke was pretty extreme. From biggest single in the world and performing at the Grammys to cheating, divorce, record low number of albums sold on his follow up 'Paula', and now Marvin Gaye's family successfully winning the lawsuit allleging Blurred Lines was copywritten. Add in the death of this dad and he's really had some bad years since his previous high. u/Steinberg1

#8 Bobby Driscoll

This isn't a popular one but Bobby Driscoll. He was one of Disney's golden kids back in the 40s and 50s. Ended up an addict and broke. Some kids found him dead in a run down place. Everyone just thought he was a homeless man and buried in an unmarked grave. Still there today. sbbw2012

#9 Aaron Carter

Years ago I was working on a kid's TV show and Aaron Carter was a guest star, he had just become famous because I had no idea who he was, but all the kids were excited. I'm a few years older than him and I was just thinking how this kid has his whole future ahead of him. He was young, rich(?), popular. Looking at him now and he looks older than me. It's kind of sad to see how things have turned out for him. u/ragingduck

#10 Lindsay Lohan

Mean Girls was peak Lindsay Lohan. It’s kind of shocking how quickly she fell off after that. u/Abefroman12
