* Creator/JulieAndrews did this both in and out of character in her husband Creator/BlakeEdwards' film ''{{Film/SOB}}'', playing an expy of herself who appears topless in ''her'' husband's new film. She also has a reported tendency to curse up a blue streak, which still shocks people to this day that see her as her more wholesome roles of Film/MaryPoppins and [[Film/TheSoundOfMusic Maria von Trapp]]. (In fact, ''{{Film/SOB}}'' is partly based on her and Edwards' experience with the notable 1970 flop ''Film/DarlingLili'', in which she attempted to break out of her goody-goody image by playing a UsefulNotes/MataHari {{expy}}).

* Creator/JulieAndrews did this both got famous for playing two quintessential MagicalNanny characters in ''Film/MaryPoppins'' and ''Film/TheSoundOfMusic''. This gave her a squeaky-clean image that she came to resent. An attempt at getting out of character it came in the film ''Film/DarlingLili'' where she plays a FemmeFataleSpy - who even does a ''striptease'' on stage! But the film flopped and she didn't see much success. She did however use her experiences of the TroubledProduction in her husband Creator/BlakeEdwards' film ''{{Film/SOB}}'', playing an expy of herself who appears topless in ''her'' husband's new film. She also has a reported tendency to curse up a blue streak, which still shocks people to this day that see her as her more wholesome roles of Film/MaryPoppins and [[Film/TheSoundOfMusic Maria von Trapp]]. (In fact, Blake Edwards's ''{{Film/SOB}}'' is partly based on her and Edwards' experience - where she plays an actress with a goody two shoes image who is convinced to appear topless in a film. But as of the notable 1970 flop ''Film/DarlingLili'', in which 2000s, she attempted has returned to break out working for Disney, albeit in a more AdamWesting manner of her goody-goody image by playing a UsefulNotes/MataHari {{expy}}).earlier image.



* Creator/MelissaJoanHart of ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' sent the folks at Franchise/ArchieComics (who are infamously protective of their "wholesome" brand image) into a frenzy when she appeared in lingerie in an issue of ''Maxim''.
** This is a particularly interesting example. ''Maxim'''s target audience was not the same target audience for ''Sabrina'', but was about the right age to have been the target audience for ''Series/ClarissaExplainsItAll''. Many readers loved the issue because they got to ogle Clarissa, and at the same time many disliked her shoot because they couldn't stop seeing her as the protagonist of a pre- and early-teen show on Nickelodeon.
*** [[HilariousInHindsight Amusingly enough]], there was an episode of ''Clarissa'' that centered on her accidentally stealing a bustier and then attempting to return it without anybody finding out. And it was called "bustier" and even '''shown''' on camera, and yes, [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar this was on Nickelodeon in the 1990s]].

* Creator/MelissaJoanHart of ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' sent Creator/MelissaJoanHart:
** When ''Series/ClarissaExplainsItAll'' finished its run, Melissa was now an adult but her mother didn't want her to pursue DarkerAndEdgier roles - though this was apparently a business move to capitalise on her kid fanbase. Thus her next project was the family sitcom ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch''. She has said that once that was over, she found it hard to get cast, because people only [[IAmNotSpock saw her as a teenager]] (even though she was in her late 20s when the show finished). Thus people were startled at her playing a mother on ''Series/MelissaAndJoey''.
** During ''Sabrina'''s third season,
the folks at Franchise/ArchieComics (who Archie Comics were sent into a frenzy when she appeared in a racy photo shoot for Maxim - and they are infamously protective of their "wholesome" brand image) into a frenzy when wholesome brand. According to WordOfGod they were annoyed that the shoot advertised Sabrina rather than Melissa, making it look like she appeared in lingerie in an issue of ''Maxim''.

** This trope is a particularly interesting example. ''Maxim'''s target audience was not also the same target audience for ''Sabrina'', but was about reason Melissa kept her partying hidden from the right age to have been the target audience for ''Series/ClarissaExplainsItAll''.

* Rapper Nelly arguably damaged his mainstream career by making the "Tip Drill" video. Before it came out, Nelly was being groomed to be like the next WillSmith (but with more street cred), as a rapper who had mass appeal and wasn't like the other hardcore gritty rappers in the mainstream. So now there's this huge backlash and Nelly's career seemed defined by that raunchy vid. It arguably sapped his career's momentum.

* Often a problem seen on the resumes of female {{seiyuu}}, expect to see a lot of fake names for female seiyuu in HGame works and some like YuuAsakawa erased her records of working in hentai when she married. Male Seiyuus however are unbashedly allowed to admit they do Hentai, let it be regular hentai or BoysLove. But God forbid a popular male seiyuu get married and have children, as poor Creator/MamoruMiyano found out.

* This happened back in the sixties to Hayley Mills (star of the 1960 ''Literature/{{Pollyanna}}'' film and ''TheParentTrap'') when she was considered for the titular role in the 1962 ''{{Lolita}}'' and Disney told her to step away from the film. It eventually ''did'' catch up with her in 1967 when she appeared in the British countercultural movie ''The Family Way'' (the same movie scored in part by Music/PaulMcCartney as his first venture outside Music/TheBeatles) . In one scene, she was [[ToplessnessFromTheBack filmed from the rear naked]]. [[MayDecemberRomance She married the middle-aged director]] of the film, Roy Boulting, in 1971 (though they divorced in 1975). She also appeared topless in the film ''The Deadly Strangers''.
* [[TheSixties 1960s]] Disney teen star TommyKirk's career reportedly came to an end both due to the star's [[SexDrugsAndRockAndRoll drug issues]], diva-like behavior on set and [[ValuesDissonance homosexuality]]. He's since gotten sober and regrets his on-set behavior.

* A [[ZigzaggedTrope zigzagged]] case can be found for FormerChildStar Creator/MaraWilson. She first gained fame as the younger daughter character in ''Film/MrsDoubtfire'', but played (mostly) family-friendly roles in films such as ''Film/ASimpleWish'', ''Film/{{Matilda}}'' (as the title character) and ''WesternAnimation/ThomasAndTheMagicRailroad'', her final movie. She retired from acting while still a child in 2000, graduated from college while studying drama, and is as of 2014 a blogger, playwright, burgeoning novelist and volunteer social worker in UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity. Despite being in her late twenties, and having not been in any kind of acting role outside of online web project and college stage acting, she often receives (online and in person) negative comments from many fans that their childhoods were ruined [[SheIsAllGrownUp regarding how her figure filled out]] in the years since she left Hollywood, and commentary about her often profane language, liberal outspokenness and more adult humor on her website, {{Twitter}} account and writings. She has also expressed some horror that journalists reviewing the [[TheMusical Broadway musical version]] of ''Matilda'' recommended fans of the musical see a performance of her play, ''Sheeple'', [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids emphasizing that the play]] is ''not'' for kids. In her 2016 autobiography she revealed that her parents had a rule that she could only do family-friendly films while she was still a child. She also describes a very straight example from when she and a group of other child actors were part of a charity camping trip - and they got punished for playing Spin The Bottle in their tent. It apparently made the organisation look bad to be seen doing such a thing.

** Eventually, she fully abandoned this trope and embraced her growing "bad girl" image. While her 2010 album ''Can't Be Tamed'' was a start, the true turning point was in 2013, when she cut her hair short and released the album ''Bangerz'', which was heavily influenced by {{synthpop}} and "Dirty South" hip-hop. Her videos for "We Can't Stop" and "Wrecking Ball" created mountains of controversy due to their sexuality and drug references, to the point where WebVideo/ToddInTheShadows all but [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/teamt/tis/tpsr/40235-pop-song-reviews-qwe-cant-stopq-vs-qcome-a-get-itq called for an intervention]] for her. Meanwhile, her [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZrHTUD7AVM highly sexualized, tongue-wagging performance]] at the 2013 {{MTV}} Video Music Awards earned both outcry and mockery, quickly going {{memetic|Mutation}} due to its FanDisservice and bizarre imagery -- even getting one of her self-professed idols to [[http://music-mix.ew.com/2013/10/02/sinead-oconnor-miley-cyrus-open-letter/ ask her to stop]].

She's lampshaded the change a little, saying that, under Disney, she was expected to act like an adult, and now ''as'' an adult, acts as a child.
