Movies that led actors to quit the film industry

Fame and fortune were traditionally part of the 'American Dream,' but as celebrities have more and more freedom to speak directly to their fans and share their experiences, it's clear that it's not all it's cracked up to be. The publicity alone comes with a whole host of problems, and some actors just can't hack it. For others, they simply become disillusioned with the entertainment industry after working within its walls for many years. Child actors often get caught up in the business after they get spotted by talent agents or pushy parents decide they have star power, but later come to the conclusion that the life of an actor really isn't for them. Click through the following gallery to see which movies led these actors to bow out of the film industry altogether.

Things we should stop feeling embarrassed about

Shame and embarrassment can hinder people from experiencing some of the greatest happinesses that life can offer, and all because we’re scared of what other people will think.

Historical figures called crazy, who were right all along

So many of the things we take for granted today, things that so obviously improve our lives, didn't catch on as easily as you might think.

Although it's great that people usually come around to amazing ideas, it can be a very frustrating process for those thinkers and inventors who can't see why the world doesn't want their help. In some cases, these heroes of humanity couldn't even stick around long enough to see their work be appreciated. But we can certainly appreciate them now.
