Breaking Bad: 6 Child Stars Destroyed By Fame

- Advertisement -

Being rich, successful and famous is always a huge responsibility, and there are few people who are strong enough to carry the burden of fame, especially if they become super stars out of nothing. No wonder it is especially hard for little children, who usually become famous in one day and lose the opportunity to have a normal childhood, which eventually makes them not capable of living normal lives.
Check the list of your favorite child star you used to be delighted with and you will probably realise they are not that happy you were sure they would become.

1. Macaulay Culkin

Macaulay Culkin

If you think about how successful a child can get his name will probably be the first one to come to your mind. After fantastic success of Home Alone Macaulay Culkin became the highest paid actor in Hollywood. The role in Home Alone brought him worldwide fame and only $100 000 which was ridiculous as the movie’s gross was $500 million. Outraged by such injustice Macaulay’s father decided to become his son’s producer to represent his interests. In fact he wa worried more about Macaulay’s earning (and the more zeros there were the better) rather than his career.

In his pursuit of money he stopped paying attention to the quality of scripts offered. Macaulay’s every new project was worse and worse, his career was close to disaster. His parents got divorced, his father started drinking and his mother, after a long struggle for her son – or rather his money – completely lost her mind. Is there anything that can be even worse? There is. This sequence of failures was followed by a period of drug addiction (he was even arrested and jailed for possession of marijuana), painful break up with his girlfriend Mila Kunis, relationship with a porn star and, rumor has it, a suicide attempt. These days Macaulay is performing with the cover band “The Pizza” and it does not look like he is going to get back to his acting career that made him so famous.

2. Edward Furlong

Edward Furlong

Some people believe that Edward Furlong’s only outstanding role was that of John Connor in Terminator 2: Judgment Day. However, the Terminator was followed by a number of projects a little bit less prominent but very well accepted by American audience and critics, where he acted along with Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges and Tim Roth. He is also known for his astounding performance in American History X with Edward Norton.

And that unfortunately was the point after which his career started going downhill. Hard drugs, alcohol and problems with the law left his career no chance. He was arrested numerous times for domestic violence: first his wife, then every girl he started dating was literally forced to file a restraining order against Edward, which he repeatedly violated. In 2013, to avoid prison sentence he was forced to go to rehab.
