Celebrities seem to have everything, fame, money and a charming lifestyle. Of course, the most important thing is that they can call Hollywood home. For most fans, the lives of these celebrities are so interesting because they can do whatever they want and still look beautiful. But although the grass always looks greener to celebrities, the sad reality is that they are still human. With all the charm, flashlights and record-breaking salary, things will still fall apart.
Just like the rest of us, famous people made costly mistakes that caused them to lose their hard-won wealth. It just shows us that Stellar may also suffer from debt, drugs and doom.
We all know and love “Dracula,” a horror classic, and Bela Lugosi’s role in the film made him an instant superstar. After his stunning performance as Count Dracula, Lugosi’s star shone bright, but soon, his success proved to be a curse.
Because of his huge success as Count Dracula, Lugosi was unable to land other roles in film, and after five divorces, he was losing cash fast. In addition to the pressures of being a star, Lugosi’s fame also invited an addiction problem. The fancy lifestyle and partying made alcohol and drugs major weaknesses for Lugosi.
The high costs of being a celebrity led Lugosi to low-budget films that he relied on to survive. Sadly, when he died, Lugosi had little to show for his work as an actor, leaving just $1,900 in the bank and $1000 in real estate. What started as a promising career became a sad story of disgrace and bad luck.
