It does not take much to imagine how the wealthy and famous parts of the society lives.
Many times their daily activities and behaviors that are supposedly off-screen are in fact well-documented thanks to paparazzi and determined reporters willing to dig deep enough into celebrities’ lives.
Perhaps you don’t have to imagine at all because you can see every single detail on the Internet. Every now and then you’ll see that stardom status does not last forever.
Even the brightest stars in the entertainment industry have to realize that a lot of younger newer more promising actors, artists, singers, and personalities are always around the corner to take their spots in the limelight.
The more experienced ones eventually must take a step back and open the road for the next generation.
If they’re lucky, they would have enjoyed many years of fame; the unlucky may need to quickly make way. Celebrities take different paths when they leave the entertainment industry. Here are a few examples.
10 Jack Gleeson
Unlike the exceedingly cruel Joffery Baratheon, real-life Jack Gleeson is an all-around a nice person.
Back in 2012, Gleeson indicated his intention to retire from acting after his character’s death in the Season 4 of Game of Thrones.
Gleeson had stated an inclination to pursue a career in academia, but later on he decided to stay in acting world, albeit at smaller scale.
He is now the founder, producer, and member of a theatre company called Collapsing Horse in Dublin.
9 Kevin Jonas
When the Jonas Brothers was on a hiatus, Nick was busy with his solo music and acting career while Joe started another band. Kevin Jonas took a different approach to keeping his mind occupied. He created an app called Yood in 2015.
This app displays nearby venues that serve certain types of food along with the Yelp’s rating for each venue. You can also see phone numbers in case you want to place an order.
In 2016, he is in partnership with an image-based social network called We Heart It.
8 Dylan Sprouse
One former child actor, Dylan Sprouse, has found a creative way to move on from the bright spotlight.
He has not been on the screen for quite a while, and as it turned out he took the time to learn a new way to serve an old drink.
Not so long ago, he launched his own brewery called All-Wise Meadery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Sprouse is not an actor anymore; he brews and sells mead, an ancient type of fermented alcoholic beverage better associated with Beowulf and The Lord of the Rings than with New York City’s society.
7 Amanda Bynes
Just last February, Amanda Bynes announced that she got engaged right on Valentine’s Day.
She shared the good news while having lunch in Los Angeles with an adviser from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM), her alma mater.
She made her way to fame through her works as actor on TV and movies from late 1990s to 2010, and then she seemed to disappear entirely from the screen.
More recently she announced her intention to start a fashion collection.
