Enjoying celebrity and fame must be quite the thrill and when you’ve got it why not flaunt it? But, what happens when age, gravity and/or hard partying takes its toll on a once-upon-time-sexy celeb. Well, the results are often a little scary. StarCentral takes a look at the stars who are trying to reclaim their heyday. Those who rise the highest fall the furthest… well in most cases:
Elton John recently slagged off Madge, calling her a “fairground stripper” among other choice phrases. The 54 year old’s choice of ultra-short stage outfits, her onstage nipple flashes and her ridiculously ripped and sinewed physique are distasteful to many. Add the cheap pot shots made in a bid to remain relevant (cue verbal attacks of Lady Ga Ga and political demonstrations involving swastikas) and you have desperation personified. Clearly number one on the list to take a bow out of the spotlight.
2. Pamela Anderson
Yes, once a smoking hot Baywatch Babe. These days not so much babe… more scary cougar. Despite becoming a victim to sun, booze and many a foul husband Pammy still insists on getting around in skimpy beach wear and tragic mini-dresses. Not to mention the paint-by-numbers stripper slap.
3. Charlie Sheen
“Winning” – apparently not. There’s really no words to describe this drug addled, ageing, stripper-abusing egomaniac. He does still have his comedic purposes as an icon of crazy, but he really would do better to calm down and retire somewhere – preferably a cave in siberia.
4. Misha Barton
Once the ultimate “It Girl” she of OC fame has had a hard ride since leaving the teen melodrama. She got too big for her boots – quite literally suffering from spurts of uncontrollable weight gain and yo-yo dieting. No doubt brought on by her massive drinking binges. Since leaving the OC her most notable mentions have been a series of DUIs and a role as a stripper in a CSI episode. Californian teen goddess gone for good.
5. Lindsay Lohan
The most likely on this list to go the way of Amy Winehouse, Lindsay Lohan is one scorching hot…mess. The former child star has lived fast and hard and with several run-ins with the law she’s looking much older than her 26 years. Botoxed puffer lips and all the plastic surgery in the world can’t fix the fact she appears ready for the scrap heap – or morgue. The girl needs help.
