13 Celebrities With Mysteriously Stalled Careers


I love when a new or relatively unknown actor gets buzz and you begin to see them all over the place. It’s exciting to see someone’s luck change and everything go right for them all at once. When a star rises seemingly overnight like Jennifer Lawrence or Emma Stone did, it’s exciting to see how they’ll handle the fame and where the end up next.

Fame is an unstable force and some definitely handle it better than others. But what about those stars who seemed to be on the rise overnight but never really capitalized on it? There’s those who showed that A-list potential but somehow landed in this weird murky A-list/B-list area. Here’s 13 actors who seemed to fall in that trap.

Graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill. She's one of those people who loves school (or is afraid of the real world) so, she's getting her MFA in Screenwriting from the University of Southern California. If she's not writing, then she's writing. Or if she's really not writing, she's watching Netflix (aren't we all?).
