9 Celebrities Who Had Huge Comebacks From Huge Scandals

Some people think everyone deserves a second shot. This is true not only for regular people like ourselves but also for famous people experiencing difficulties. Despite the increased pressure of becoming a public figure, there is hope for a positive change in their life.

Even the most famous and wealthy people have flaws and are just like the rest of us in other ways. A well-known person can rise above the worst of situations. Surprisingly, the careers of some famous people improve over time. Here are nine famous people whose shady past hasn’t stopped them from being famous.

1. Drew Barrymore

This former ’90s sweetheart has had her share of media troubles. Most would be surprised to find that the E.T. actress had a troubled youth. Drew Barrymore used poisons and entered treatment. Barrymore has trouble finding an acting job due to her ruined “good-girl” image and rebellious reputation. The actress said she returned to Hollywood with “pure ambition and hatred.” She kept acting but didn’t make a comeback until 1998’s The Wedding Singer. She stars in Netflix’s The Santa Clarita Diet. Barrymore rocks!

2. Jennifer Lawrence

Even eccentric Jennifer Lawrence got involved in a viral incident. It’s everywhere online. A hacker leaked embarrassing images of the actress. Lawrence didn’t go into hiding; she spoke out against the hackers’ actions. Her feminist response reminded women they control their bodies. Jennifer has been successful since the controversy. She’s Mystique in X-Men. The best retribution an actor can give a hater.

3. Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant was a great basketball player, but he retired in 2003. He was convicted of having an inappropriate connection with a Colorado hotel worker. Bryant’s apology was so sincere that the people believed him. It’s alarming that some of the biggest celebrity scandals, like Bill Cosby’s, are pardoned. Bryant succeeded nonetheless. NBA commissioner Adam Silver called the Laker’s player “one of our game’s greatest” in 2015. Kobe Bryant helped the Lakers capture five titles. We’ll never know how certain celebs get a pass.

4. Chris Brown

Chris Brown was once compared to Michael Jackson. He had looks, movements, and girls liked him. In 2009, rumors of domestic abuse with then-girlfriend Rihanna derailed his career. Since then, Brown has been in and out of public scandals, the latest being a French woman who believes Brown and his friends victimized her. The star will never escape the courtroom, but he’s still making wonderful music. We don’t like Brown’s actions, but we hope he receives help.

5. Tim Allen

Even celebrities have difficult adolescence. Being a rebellious kid has consequences, but they don’t compare to what renowned people experience. Many celebs’ “clean” image was ruined by dumb behavior. Hollywood may be merciless unless one works hard and long enough to overshadow their mistakes. Tim Allen made several mistakes in his teens, shockingly. One terrible decision nearly derailed his career. The actor was arrested for carrying ‘harmful drugs’ in 1978. (very white and powdery ones). Allen recovered following the incident. His comeback led to Last Man Standing and Home Improvement. Nobody’s too old to change.

6. Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods should’ve learned his lesson after one scandal. Some superstars require several life lessons. Tiger Woods escaped a cheating scandal and had a run-in with authorities in 2017. This superstar knows how to eliminate bad news and refocus people on his successes. He can dodge trouble and yet be a sports legend. The press and the field can’t beat Woods.

7. Kesha

It’s hard to think that Kesha had a terrible patch. The legendary music star endured a years-long scandal. The singer reportedly had troubles with Dr. Luke and called the police. Kesha was bound to a five-year contract and couldn’t release music. Rainbow was a long-awaited success and a liberated response to difficulties with her record producer. The album’s honesty and raw emotion touched fans’ hearts. Kesha made an incredible comeback despite the legal battle. We hope she beats her producer.

8. Reese Witherspoon

This star, like Drew Barrymore, was called “America’s Sweetheart” until a run-in with the law. Her beautiful image faded quickly. Like most people, fans were probably shocked to learn that Reese Witherspoon isn’t perfect. 2013: Actress charged with disorderly conduct after husband’s DUI arrest. We’re not sure her attitude was as stunning as fans and critics say after watching the video. Not scandalous, yet the internet makes even the smallest celebrity rumor a sensation. Witherspoon deserved a break.

9. Will Smith

Our youth can be challenging and confused, as former stars have shown. Will Smith isn’t immune, sadly. While most people like him, he has legal troubles. In 1989, the actor had a heated altercation with a record promoter during his early rapping career. The altercation escalated to Smith’s bodyguard attacking the promoter. Inmates in a West Philadelphia jail asked Smith for autographs all night. If we were Will Smith, we’d bury that scandal too.
