noticed that Bridget Fonda hasn't been in a movie in over a decade.
I thought it was to look after his kids when his wife died? either way it's quite sad
basically her creepy weird dad ruined her career
he supervised her sex scenes apparently. can't blame her for packing it in
it sounds more like he got her fired from loads of things and now nobody will hire her :(
it sounds like she was struggling before that although I'm sure that couldn't have helped.
Last Of The Summer Wine
and stopped acting to start a family I think. Moranis, Gene Hackman and Joe Pesci all retired from acting.
Renee Zellweger - presumably a victim of Hollywood chucking actresses on the scrapheap once they hit 40
Zellweger is still working.
His wife died of breast cancer and he retired to bring up his kids.
which resulted in her receiving a broken back.
From what I understand this led to her reexamining her priorities and deciding to settle down and have a family with Elfman.
but a) it's pure conjecture b) i also heard she had a heart condition, which is true but not necessarily the reason for her absence, and c) settling down and having a family doesn't really require giving up your vocation for over a decade
there is a CONSPIRACY THEORY as to why
lets hear it then
And that the payment he received for that meant that he didn't need to work for ages.
just looked and he's actually steadily been making films forever. nothing i've heard of tho, which is suss cos he was on track to be A Big Star
Probably a career killer.

(Honestly, what REALLY happened to Guttenberg?)
Apparently he was blackballed for a long time after having an affair with the wife of a Hollywood big cheese and refusing to apologise, or something. He's subsequently made that apology and is now back in the business.
He made a series of big budget critical and (by Hollywood accounting terms) commercial flops. I'm not surprised he'd be poison after.
which was a critical and box office success.
seemed to disappear off the face of the planet for years, and former co-actors were expressing concern about her. all good now, apparently though
had two kids with Kevin Kline (one of whom was the younger brother in The Squid And The Whale), stopped being in stuff. Shame.
Jonathan Demme did some good indie stuff then went massive with Silence Of The Lambs followed by Philadelphia. After that he just sort of disappered for ages and never really made a big film again
he did the remake of manchurian candidate
Rachel Getting Married (his only feature film in the last decade) is meant to be good though
personally I thought it went on for a bit too long.
