As we’ve said a thousand times before, Hollywood is a really fickle place. Actors and actresses come and go really quickly, so we don’t advise that you become too attached to anyone because these men and women will disappear faster than you can blink an eye. Winning an Oscar – or any other accolade for that matter – isn’t even enough nowadays to secure a permanent place in Hollywood. Check out our list of 9 leading actors whose careers fizzled pretty soon after they made their mark. What happened to these 9 great actors? Keep reading to find out!
9. Kevin Costner
Kevin Costner was one of the biggest movie stars in the world during the ‘80s and ‘90s. He won two Academy Awards for directing and producing “Dances with Wolves” and he was in a number of other commercially successful and critically acclaimed films, including “The Untouchables” and “Field of Dreams.” The Oscar winning director seemed unstoppable; however, since the turn of the century, Costner’s career has been in decline and his movie star status has completely diminished.
