10 Actors Whose Careers Never Really Recovered

There are no shortage of Hollywood stars who don’t shine quite as brightly as they used to. After setting the bar high earlier on in their careers, it must’ve been hard for these standouts to live up to the expectations. It’s interesting to think just how many former Hollywood A-listers have shifted to the acting B-list, so without further ado, here are some actors whose careers took a turn for the worse.

Adam Sandler

Adam Sandler started off with a few funny movies, and we were all laughing. Flicks such as Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, and just about everything up to Anger Management were good for more than a few chuckles. Sandler was also great in a couple serious films such as Reign Over Me and Punch Drunk Love, but once he released You Don’t Mess with the Zohan, his career tanked. He began releasing bad movie after bad movie, including Jack and Jill, That’s My Boy, and The Cobbler. Though the numbers on his direct-to-Netflix movie The Ridiculous Six appeared healthy, Sandler’s roles continue to come with a bullseye when it comes to the critics’ reviews.
