It doesn’t take a lot for a celebrity to become the subject of ridicule in Hollywood. However, it does take a lot for a celebrity to become more well-known for being made fun of than their actual work. Though there was a time when they were at the top of the Hollywood heap, that’s where many of the figures on this list currently are positioned in Tinsel Town. Here are 15 stars whose careers have sadly been reduced to punchlines.

Here’s a tip for anyone in the entertainment industry who is under the age of 50– never announce your retirement. This is a lesson Amanda Bynes could have used as the former Nickelodeon star has retired twice—once in 2010 and again last year. Even worse, the actress managed to dovetail her “permanent retirement” with five driving offenses (that included hit-and-runs, driving under the influence, and driving with a suspended license) and several instances of bizarre behavior (from parading around nude in a NYC tanning salon to facing eviction from her Manhattan home). The actress’ public meltdown has officially overshadowed her former achievements in the entertainment industry, making her the tabloid equivalent of a Lindsay Lohan-lite.
