Nelly Furtado on red carpet

Have you ever noticed a big star seem to completely disappear one day? You’ve got company. Someone recently asked, “What celebrity disappeared out of nowhere?” Here are the top-voted responses.

1. Jonathan Taylor Thomas

“He made a few cameos in Last Man Standing. From what I’ve gathered is he just likes being him and not all over the place. Being a teen heartthrob is probably stressful enough. He’s probably just living off Home Improvement checks or something.”

2. Julia Stiles

“Julia Stiles, she did all those movies in the mid-2000s and gone…,” mentioned one user.

Another added, “10 Things I Hate About You will forever be one of my favorite movies ever.”

3. Thora Birch

One user noted, “Her creepy dad destroyed her career.”

Another added, “That basically was what happened. People around her were telling her to get a real manager and stop having her father run everything into the ground, she stuck with him, so the work dried up.”

4. LMFAO, The Party Rock Song

“They broke up because the nephew got hurt on stage, and the uncle kept partying without him and then cut him out of the group, etc. It’s all pretty sad, to be honest,” one shared.

5. Gotye, Who Sang Somebody That I Used To Know

“Gotye. The dude made a single song and then became somebody we used to know,” one stated. Another added, “His name is literally gotcha, and his hit single is that song. I believe this.”

6. Cameron Diaz

One said, “Cameron Diaz. Just up and retired for the quiet life. She married Benji Madden from Good Charlotte, and they have a daughter.” “She is unretired now. She’s making a movie with Jamie Foxx,” a second shared.

7. Nelly Furtado

“She started as a catchy singer-songwriter who made mellow kinda indie songs. Then, it seemed like she transitioned to pop star to make a bag (which she accomplished) and then live a wonderful comfy life,” someone shared. Another joked, “She’s like a bird, man. She flew away.”

8. Chris Tucker

“I think he’s on the record that he made so much money doing the Rush Hour trilogy that he said forget it and retired,” one claimed. Another shared, “He released a comedy special on Netflix in 2015 and has been in a couple of films since Rush Hour 3. He seems selective about what he does these days.”

9. Renée Zellweger

Someone semi-joked, “Renée Zellweger fell off the face of the Earth until she returned with a different face.” “I find her very unrecognizable. I’m a huge advocate for doing whatever she wants to get done to her own body, but the side-by-side photos are a bit jarring,” a second said.

10. Jet Li

Someone shared, “From his Wikipedia: In 2013, Li revealed that he suffered from hyperthyroidism and had been dealing with the issue for three years. In 2016, he stated that he had recovered from his illness and that accepting fewer film offers was due to his charity work and not because of his health conditions.”

11. Leelee Sobieski

“Leelee Sobieski,” one replied. “She was popular in the ’90s and early 2000s.” Another shared, “Commenting on the reasons for her early retirement to Us Weekly, Sobieski said, “I am just focused on my kids. I think that’s mainly why I stopped. Also, ninety percent of acting roles involve so much sexual stuff with other people, and I don’t want to do that.”

12. Mena Suvari

Mena Suvari. The girl from the American Pie and American Beauty movies. And the Wheatus Teenage Dirtbag video,” one spoke. Another clarified, “She went through a lot of sexual abuse when she became famous and released a book about it all last year.”

13. Josh Hartnett

Someone stated, “Josh Hartnett. He was huge after Pearl Harbor.” He took a break intentionally. Another user shared, “He was a primary character in Penny Dreadful a few years back. An excellent Showtime Original Series if you haven’t seen it.”

14. Taylor Lautner

“Taylor Lautner from the Twilight Saga,” another volunteered. However, someone stated, He’s trying to restart his career after leaving the business for a while. He’s on The Home Team with Kevin James. It is about New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton, who decided to coach his son’s football team while he was suspended from the NFL.”

15. Eliza Dushku

Eliza Dushku. She reported harassment and was dropped from a show soon after,” someone replied. A second said, “She got a 9.5 million dollar settlement due to what happened on Bull. After that, she took a break from acting and went to college. She earned a psychology BA and is working on her Masters.” “Could you imagine showing up for a therapy appt and it’s freaking Eliza?’ another asked.
