15 Celebrities Who Walked Away From Fame

Celebrities seem to have it all when they’re at the height of their fame, but for some it just isn’t enough or is simply too much too soon.

Several stars of the silver screen have ditched the bright lights of Hollywood to look after their kids or pursue a private life which isn’t a daily paparazzi-dodging session, while some musicians and actors have retired early to concentrate on careers away from the spotlight.

Whether they’ve gone on to resemble a homeless person on a night out or wound up in prison, there’s no limit to what a celeb can get up to when they walk away from fame.
