25 Celebrities That Managed To Bury Their Careers Overnight

We’ve all done silly things in our lives. Whether it’s something you’ve said or something you’ve done, there are surely a large number of statements and actions that you wish you could take back. We’re talking about those moments when you all of a sudden wish that you could have a time machine. You wish that you could just go back in time and change everything that you just did. Hindsight is always 20/20. In retrospect you always have more information, and you know exactly how you would have done things differently.

The situation becomes significantly worse, however, when you are in the spotlight. It’s the celebrities that wish for time machines more than anybody else. In fact, there is some speculation that the high rates of drug abuse and alcoholism among celebrities and famous people are due to the fact that their lives are often under more scrutiny than they otherwise would be. If one of us average Joe’s messes up, not too many people know about it, and eventually, everyone forgets anyway. If a celebrity messes up, it gets recorded on their wikipedia page for the rest of history (at least until World War III leads to the destruction of all our databases). These are 25 Celebrities That Managed To Bury Their Careers Overnight.
