Celebrities who retired early

Fame and fortune were traditionally part of the "American Dream," but the publicity alone comes with a whole host of problems, and some actors just can't hack it. Others simply become disillusioned with the entertainment industry after working within its walls for many years. Cameron Diaz disappeared from the spotlight after her 2014 movie 'Annie,' which co-starred Jamie Foxx. The following year she married her husband Benji Madden, and in 2018, she confirmed that she was retiring from acting. Since then, Diaz had her first child and launched a wine brand called Avaline. Fans were shocked and delighted when she announced that she was coming out of retirement in 2022 to film another movie with Jamie Foxx. 'Back in Action' is a Netflix action-comedy directed by Seth Gordon, known for 'Horrible Bosses' (2011) and 'Baywatch' (2017), and is reportedly set for release in 2024. Production began back in December and will continue until April, but apparently, it's already been too much for Diaz. News broke on March 21 that the actress has decided to re-retire after this movie. This comes shortly after Foxx allegedly had a meltdown on set, firing an executive producer, two directors, and his driver. Sources close to Diaz say she is on good terms with Foxx and that the incident wasn't connected to her decision, but that the 10-hour work days and time away from family have just been too much. There are many stars who for one reason or another made the decision to retire early. Check out this gallery to find out who they are!

Nick Lachey's Ups and Downs: Jessica Simpson Divorce, Legal Trouble, More

The spotlight has sometimes been glaring for Nick Lachey, who has dealt with both career ups and downs and personal highs and lows during his two-plus decades of fame. The 98 Degrees singer rose to stardom during his time with the boy band in the ‘90s — and skyrocketed once he married Jessica Simpson in 2002. While the group went on an extended hiatus in 2003, the then-couple featured their romance on the MTV reality show (and pop culture juggernaut) Newlyweds, but their marriage soon started to crumble. Things came to a head when the “Sweetest Sin” singer filed for divorce from Lachey in 2005. “I’ll tell you how I knew my marriage was over. I was told,” the “My Everything” singer told Rolling Stone one year later, claiming that Simpson announced she wanted a divorce while the two were in a limo after the American Music Awards. “She said something about how we hadn’t really been getting along and then said, ‘I think I want a divorce.’ That blindsided me. I basically said, ‘Please, let’s sleep on it.’ But when we woke up the next day, Wednesday morning, she was still sure.” (Simpson, for her part, detailed her side of the story in her 2020 memoir, Open Book.) Lachey channeled his emotions into his music, releasing the hit single, “What’s Left of Me,” in February 2006. He followed up the emotional track — which he penned in the wake of his split from Simpson — later that year with his sophomore album titled after the song. The “Because of You” artist began dating his now-wife, Vanessa Lachey (née Minnillo), after meeting on the set of the “What’s Left of Me” video. The couple tied the knot in 2011 and went on to welcome three children together: Camden, Brooklyn and Phoenix. In order to view the video, please allow Manage Cookies As the Lacheys built their life together and parented three kids, they also continued to achieve success in their separate — and joint — reality TV ventures. The pair have cohosted Netflix’s fan favorite dating competition series Love Is Blind since 2020, and Nick won season 5 of The Masked Singer in 2021. Despite all the positives in both his professional and personal lives, Nick found himself in legal trouble during an incident with a celebrity photographer in March 2022. “Last night, after enjoying a great dinner with my wife and our dear friend, the paparazzi harassed us as we walked back to our hotel,” Nick tweeted about the altercation one day later. “I clearly overreacted. I’ve been in this game long enough to know that their antics are sadly part of the deal. Stupid of me. Done.” According to the photographer, Jody Santos, she was snapping pictures of Nick and Vanessa outside of a restaurant in Beverly Hills when the “Hardest Thing” artist became “aggressive,” she told the Daily Mail one year later. He allegedly attempted to grab her phone from her car window, which she rolled up. The cameraperson alleged that Nick punched the glass so hard “I thought he was going to break his hand.” A representative for the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office clarified to Us Weekly that as a result of the incident, Nick is “participating in LADA’s Prefiling Diversion program,” which requires that “he must participate in anger management classes and attend Alcoholic Anonymous meetings.” The spokesperson added: “Successful completion of the Prefiling Diversion Program will result in no criminal charges being filed.” Sign up for Us Weekly's free, daily newsletter and never miss breaking news or exclusive stories about your favorite celebrities, TV shows and more!

Generous celebrities who donate millions to charity

These celebs may earn much more than the average citizen, but they’ve taken it upon themselves to give back to their communities and to the world at large—in some cases, to the tune of tens of millions—or devoting much of their careers to humanitarian work. Here are 20 of the most generous celebrities.

Actors who apologized for roles they played

In recent years, the general population has become more and more aware of the whitewashing that goes on in Hollywood. White actors are cast to play non-white characters, straight actors are cast in gay roles, and cisgender actors often get to portray the few trans characters we see on our screens. Awareness and unease has been rising for a long time, but the outrage has reached a fever pitch as of late. Many actors are now looking back at their careers and seeing how their choices took opportunities away from those whose voices have long been silenced, and took representation away from those who desperately need it. It's hard to turn a blind eye anymore, and actor apologies are at an all-time high as we grow as a society. Some actors are even apologizing simply because their movies sucked! Click through this gallery to see which roles led actors to make public apologies.

Ed Sheeran and other celebs open up about mental health

In a time when mental illness is more prevalent than ever, breaking the stigma around issues like depression, anxiety, and various disorders can be a matter of life and death. Our society worships celebrities and it puts them in a position of immense influence. Many celebrities are now using their platforms to destigmatize mental illness and share that they experience the same struggles as everyone else. Ed Sheeran is one of the most low-key celebs out there, and while he isn't cagey, he's certainly private and doesn't usually draw attention to himself. However, he's now releasing a four-part docuseries called 'The Sum of It All' in which he offers a deeply personal and raw insight into his life. "Disney approached me to make a four-part documentary, and it felt like the right time to open the door and let people in. I hope people enjoy it," he said in a statement. The trailer already dives into the struggles he faced in 2022, revealing that his wife, Cherry Seaborn, developed a tumor while she was pregnant with their second child. While Sheeran was frantic with worry for her, his best friend, Jamal Edwards, died suddenly at the age of 31. Not to mention the fact that he was embroiled in a high-profile copyright lawsuit. Ahead of the docuseries' release, Sheeran opened up in an intimate interview with Rolling Stone. He revealed that the events of early 2022 sent him into a spiral of depression, which became even worse when another friend, the cricketer Shane Warne, passed away. "I felt like I didn't want to live anymore. And I have had that throughout my life... You're under the waves drowning," he explained. However, these struggles also brought up feelings of guilt for the 32-year-old, who thought it "seemed selfish, especially as a father. I feel really embarrassed about it." Sheeran also revealed that he struggled with addiction and binge-eating disorder in the past, all of which he finally tackled in recent years as he prepared to become a father. He promises that his upcoming album, 'Subtract,' will be the culmination of many years of pain, healing, and recovery. Take a look through the gallery and find out which other celebrities are courageously opening up to the public about their experiences with mental health, and learn more about the signs and symptoms so you can help raise awareness too.
