* Music/JenniferLopez practically became an A-list star overnight after her performance in ''Film/{{Selena}}'' was praised by critics, and she followed it up with several critically acclaimed films such as ''Film/OutOfSight'' and ''Film/TheCell''. She also became noteworthy for being one of the few thespians who was able to successfully juggle both a singing and acting career. Though some critics were disappointed when she later switched over to starring in middling romantic comedies like ''The Wedding Planner'', ''Film/MonsterInLaw'', and ''Film/MaidInManhattan'', but her films were still successful box-office wise for the most part, and even the critically mauled ''Film/{{Gigli}}'' didn't seem to stall her career much. But then she took a four-year break from her film career, and her first film since her break, ''The Back-Up Plan'' received worse reviews then any other film she's starred in so far, so while Lopez is still getting work in films ([[Series/AmericanIdol and]] [[Series/ShadesOfBlue television]]), it's pretty likely she'll never return to her former A-list status.

* Faye Dunaway exploded onto the scene with ''Film/BonnieAndClyde'' and a subsequent Oscar nomination. She was hyped up throughout the 70s with hits like ''Film/TheThomasCrownAffair'', ''Film/TheToweringInferno'', ''Film/TheThreeMusketeers'', ''{{Film/Chinatown}}'', and ''Film/{{Network}}'' (for which she won an Oscar). She got singled out by Creator/JoanCrawford, who said that she was the only actress of her generation who "has what it takes" to become a star. Prophetic words - as Faye was chosen to play Joan herself in the adaptation of her daughter's tell-all book ''Literature/MommieDearest''. What was anticipated as a hard-hitting and gritty biopic ended up a hammy [[{{Narm}} unintentional comedy]] with the portrayal of Joan turned into a deranged cartoon character. Her hopes of winning an Oscar vanished, and the film's reception as a SoBadItsGood camp classic destroyed the star's reputation - along with stories of her being a massive primadonna on set (rumour has it that the cast and crew found her so horrible they told her there wasn't a wrap party). She all but vanished from leading roles afterwards, with her most notable credits since being ''Film/{{Supergirl}}'' and ''Film/DunstonChecksIn''.

* Since ''Film/{{Divergent}}'' is considered by several in terms of hype to be "The New ''[[Literature/TheHungerGames Hunger Games]]''," being a film adaptation of a popular Young Adult book series (and every new such franchise launched between the two has bombed), there are already some press that are hyping up ''Divergent'' star Creator/ShaileneWoodley as "The New Creator/JenniferLawrence." Adding to this comparison is the fact that both got their first break on low-budget cable series (''The Bill Engvall Show'' for Lawrence, ''Series/TheSecretLifeOfTheAmericanTeenager'' for Woodley.) The box office success of ''Film/TheFaultInOurStars'' is certainly a step in the right direction but after ''Allegiant'' bombed so badly, she refused to return the final movie which was regulated as a TV movie. Fortunately, her performance in ''Film/Snowden'' and ''Series/BigLittleLies'' was praised which means there's hope for her.

* Lily James has received a lot of good press, coming from ''Downton'' as well. She was at one point touted as "the next Keira Knightley" and was brought to national attention with her widely praised role as the title character in Disney's live-action remake of ''[[{{Film/Cinderella2015}} Cinderella]]''. Her first follow-up to that - ''Literature/PrideAndPrejudiceAndZombies'' - playing with her 'English Rose' typecasting, was a BoxOfficeBomb. But she already had ''Downton'' and another well-received role in the BBC adaptation of ''Literature/WarAndPeace'' to fall back on, so time will tell.

* Creator/EmiliaClarke is slowly rising on the top ever since she was cast as Daenarys Targaryen in ''Series/GameOfThrones'' which got her an Emmy nomination. By then, she landed a role as Sarah Connor in ''Film/TerminatorGenisys'' which received negative critical reviews and most of these reviews panned her performance. However, she did well in ''Film/MeBeforeYou'' and is cast in the upcoming ''Franchise/StarWars'' spinoff on Han Solo. Time will tell if she will stay on top, or instead be remembered as a one-hit wonder.

** Matt [=LeBlanc=] made a series of hellacious bombs: he did ''Ed'', a movie with a baseball-playing chimp, and ''Film/LostInSpace''... and then there was ''Series/{{Joey}}''. He's currently starring in the low-rated but critically successful Creator/{{Showtime}} comedy series ''Series/{{Episodes}}'' (playing himself, no less). After ''Episodes'' finished its run, he was immediately announced as one of the new hosts of ''Series/TopGear''.

* Creator/TomHiddleston. Ever since he first starred as the villainous Loki in Film/{{Thor}}, Tom Hiddleston has skyrocketed in popularity with his subsequent reprisal as Loki in Film/TheAvengers only further enhancing his fame. Furthermore, unlike most of his other MCU alumni, he has found success outside of the MCU in both TV and Film. His leading roles in ''LiveAction/TheHollowCrown'' and ''LiveAction/TheNightManager'' were critical acclaimed with the latter earning him a Golden Globe award. Most recently, he headlined ''Film/KongSkullIsland'', which earned $566 million worldwide against its $185 million budget though many critics and viewers felt that he was not the main box-office draw and that his performance was overshadowed by the AllStarCast. For the time being, Hiddleston seems to have a bright future and at this rate may be on his way to securing A-list stardom.

** Creator/DanielCraig got a lot of flak when he's chosen as Bond due to [[{{Understatement}} being blonde and short]]. But he showed his detractors wrong with the reboot, ''[[Film/CasinoRoyale2006 Casino Royale]]''. However, his other Bond movies, ''Film/QuantumOfSolace'', ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'', and ''Film/{{Spectre}}'' earned mixed reception. Prior and during his Bond tenure, he had been into a bunch of movies such as ''Film/RoadToPerdition'', ''Film/{{Munich}}'', ''Film/TheGoldenCompass'', ''Film/TheGirlWithTheDragonTattoo'' and the upcoming ''Film/LoganLucky'' among others and had a good career as a theater actor which keeps him on top for a while.

* Creator/LindsayLohan. This one wasn't related to any lack of talent -- Creator/MerylStreep, of all people, vouched for her acting ability, as did her ''Film/MeanGirls'' co-star Creator/TinaFey. Instead, her decline came from a combination of a disastrous relationship with [[StageMom her parents]], chronic [[HardDrinkingPartyGirl partying]] and drug/alcohol abuse (which did quite the number on [[http://www.buzzfond.com/16-gorgeous-stars-who-have-aged-badly/9/ her looks]] and eventually led to legal troubles), and a reputation for being [[SmallNameBigEgo a diva]] who often showed up to the set late and hungover (if not completely missing filming days altogether). Attempts to revitalize her career -- such as the {{Lifetime|MovieOfTheWeek}} biopic ''Film/LizAndDick'' -- have mostly flopped, with the qualified success of her 2014 West End theatre debut in ''Speed-the-Plow'' the one exception. Nowadays, she's far better known for her appearances in the tabloids, and is considered a cautionary tale for the FormerChildStar. It's been joked that Creator/EmmaStone has the career she would have had, had she not gone off the rails.

* Creator/AndrewGarfield had a string of indie successes (''Boy A'', ''Lions For Lambs'', ''Film/TheImaginariumOfDoctorParnassus'') before hitting it big with ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan''. Even critics who didn't care much for it praised him in the title role, favorably comparing him to Tobey Maguire (who also found the right balance between big budget films and small dramatic films).

* Katherine Heigl. After several years of TV appearances in stuff like ''Series/{{Roswell}}'' and ''Series/GreysAnatomy'', she gained a lot of fans for her starring role in ''Film/KnockedUp''... only to throw them all away within weeks. She was on her way to becoming a household name before leaving ''Grey's Anatomy'' presumably to pursue more film work, and went on to star in flops like ''Film/{{Killers}}'', ''Film/NewYearsEve'', ''Film/OneForTheMoney'', and ''Film/TheBigWedding'', and developed a reputation of being difficult to work with, in part thanks to her [[StageMom mother/manager]]. Not long after ''Knocked Up'' came out, however, she did a very vocal interview where she attacked basically everyone involved in the film, calling director Creator/JuddApatow a sexist and lead actor Creator/SethRogen a slob, among other things. Despite the backlash, her next two works, ''Film/TwentySevenDresses'' and ''Film/TheUglyTruth'', did very well at the box office despite not-so-great reviews. However, her reputation took another hit when she criticized the writing of ''Series/GreysAnatomy'' publicly on multiple occasions and was eventually PutOnABus (so bad was the backlash to her behavior that she did an interview with ''Entertainment Weekly'' to apologize for her antics). Since 2009, her films have opened under $16m and have grossed less than $60m total domestically, and her latest try at television, in 2014-15 with ''State Of Affairs'', was derided by critics and canned after one season despite airing behind ''Series/TheVoice''. In 2017, she made another television attempt with ''Doubt'', which got cancelled after two episodes. Her career and reputation are basically in tatters at this point.

* Canadian actress Estella Warren got a ''huge'' push in 2001 when she starred as the love interest and femme fatale in two major Hollywood films -- the ''Film/PlanetOfTheApes2001'' remake and the Creator/SylvesterStallone racing film ''Film/{{Driven}}''. That, along with dating her ''Driven'' co-star Kip Purdue and landing a spot on Maxim's Hot 100 Babe List before she had a single film out, did a lot to jumpstart her fledgling career in spite of both films' middling box office and scathing reviews. However, ''Film/KangarooJack'' killed any momentum she had. What followed were a string of unsuccessful direct-to-video flops and indie films, along with an unsuccessful marketing push in 2005 (features in ''FHM'' and a supporting role in ''Film/MrAndMrsSmith'', which was cut prior to the film's release). These days, she's more well-known for her tabloid antics (including trying to break out of a police station after being arrested) than her film career.

* Creator/AngelinaJolie. Years of indie-cred roles in ''Film/{{Gia}}'', ''Film/{{Hackers}}'', and other films paid off with a big push from ''Film/GirlInterrupted'' in 1999, which won her the Best Supporting Actress Oscar and resulted in a near-endless push that got her big roles in such films as ''Film/LaraCroftTombRaider'' and ''Film/MrAndMrsSmith''. When the latter got her together with Creator/BradPitt, the "Brangelina" media juggernaut was born. Clearly a major success story for everyone involved, as her films do generally well (though she stopped making them so quickly and focused on her home life and activist work), and the magazines get to make money off of her image (proof that being tabloid-bait isn't ''always'' a bad thing -- only if that's ''all'' you're known for). Ironically, Jolie has stated on several occasions that she wants to give up acting for her growing family.
