5 Once-Popular Actors You Don’t See Anymore

Published

on

Hollywood actors are only as good as their last movie. This is true for many stars who somehow disappear from the spotlight after a major box office flop. They’re no longer in high demand by movie producers, film studios, and directors. Have you wondered what happened to these five stars?

Rick Moranis

Rick Moranis starred in several iconic films of the 1980s, including Ghostbusters, Spaceballs, and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. But his wife, costume designer Ann Belsky, unfortunately died of cancer in 1991 and after that, Moranis struggled to appear in the 1994 film, The Flintstones. One of his final films, the 1996 Big Bully, was a disappointment. Afterward, Moranis retired from acting to focus on being a single father.

Emilio Estevez

Emilio Estevez is best known for being a member of the acting Brat Pack in the 1980s, starring in The Breakfast Club, The Outsiders, St. Elmo’s Fire, but also the popular 1990’s trilogy, The Mighty Ducks. But popularity declined with D3: The Mighty Ducks, and Estevez gradually removed himself from the spotlight. Recently, he has focused on directing projects.

Chuck Norris

Chuck Norris was a popular martial artist and actor in the 1980s and ‘90s, starring on the popular television series, Walker, Texas Ranger. But in the early 2000s, Norris appeared in television movies and box office flops. He hasn’t appeared in a movie since 2012’s The Expendables 2, another Hollywood fail.

Dana Carvey

Dana Carvey was an iconic star of Saturday Night Live in the late 1980s and early ‘90s, thanks to his popular characters, like the Church Lady, and his impression of President George H.W. Bush. His biggest post-SNL career is credited to 1992’s Wayne’s World. But none of his other projects, Clean Slate, Trapped in Paradise, and The Dana Carvey Show, gained popularity. Since then, Carvey has retreated from Hollywood.

Tobey Macguire

Tobey Maguire will always be remembered as playing Peter Parker in the Spider-Man trilogy. He also starred in Pleasantville, The Cider House Rules, The Great Gatsby, and the critically-acclaimed Seabiscuit. But his 2015 film, Pawn Sacrifice, fell flat with audiences. Since then, Maguire has lost his Hollywood popularity. He’ll always be Spider-Man to us!
