#10. Hilary Duff
Hilary is probably one of the Disney prodigies who has managed to keep her nose clean. She started with Mickey’s network on the show Lizzie McGuire before moving into movies and singing. Her career did hit some pitfalls. In her early teens she reportedly fell victim to an eating disorder after the pressures of body image became too much. According to Us Weekly it was her sister who saved her from the downward spiral.
“It made me obsessed,” she [says] of the story that drove her into a hard-core diet and exercise binge. “I would beat myself up if I had some fat.” But when the 5-foot-2 star’s weight plummeted to around 100 pounds in 2005 (down from 130 in 2003), her sister Haylie, 22, finally intervened.”
#9. Shia LaBeouf
Disney alumni, Shia LaBeouf, started his career with the series ‘Even Stevens.’ He is still keeping his career alive, but not without trouble. In 2007 he had a drunken debacle in a Chicago Walgreens which resulted in his arrest. Almost a year later he was involved in a car accident that the LA County Sheriff’s Dept. announced was not Shia’s fault, but they did smell alcohol on his breath and he refused to take a breathalyzer. On Feb. 5, 2011 he again had an alcohol fueled fiasco. While at Mad Bull’s Tavern bar in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles. A fight broke out and Shia managed to escape official charges but was punched mouth.
Remember Kids Incorporated? Stacy Ferguson was a member of the “rock group” that dealt with everything from having a crush to child abuse at the hangout “The P*lace.” She went on to perform with a girl group and eventually found fame with the Black Eyed Peas. But after her stint on Disney and time with the girl band, the straight A student/cheerleader/spelling bee champion and Girl Scout developed an addiction to meth. She talked with Time magazine about her struggle with the drug.
“It was the hardest boyfriend I ever had to break up with,” she says. “It’s the drug that’s addicting. But it’s why you start doing it in the first place that’s interesting. A lot of it was being a child actor; I learned to suppress feelings.”
#7. Vanessa Hudgens
Nude photos are now synonymous with Vanessa Hudgens. She found fame after ‘High School Musical’ launched her into a household name. In 2007 personal nude photos of the starlet spread over the net like wildfire. She photographed herself in barely-there lingerie and exposed herself in pics that were allegedly meant for her then boyfriend, Zac Efron. In 2008 another set of incriminating photos showed her and Zac shopping in Sex Toy store. Her boobs made another internet stop in 2009 after a new set of leaked cell phone photos proved she didn’t learn her lesson the first time. Vanessa has managed to sweep off the negative press and continue her career, but it still haunts her when it comes to offers. She told Allure magazine that it’s always a factor.
“Whenever anybody asks me, would I do nudity in a film, if I say that it’s something I’m not comfortable with, they’re like, ‘Bullshit, you’ve already done it.’ If anything, it makes it more embarrassing, because that was a private thing. It’s screwed up that someone screwed me over like that. At least some people are learning from my mistake.”
#6. Christina Aguilera
Xtina was one of the success stories from the reboot of Mickey Mouse Club. She soon became one of the opposition to the Britney Spears machine. After playing the ‘bad girl’ to Spears’ virginal role model she seemed to be cashing in on sex appeal from the start. Now, Aguilera is constantly spray painted orange and facing an alleged problem with alcohol. After her announcement of her divorce to Jordan Bratman she has been found passed out drunk in Jeremy Renner’s bed after showing up to his birthday bash uninvited, picking fights at the Golden Globes and screwing up the lyrics to the National Anthem at the Super Bowl. Current rumor is that Christina’s staff wants to organize an intervention, but backed off on the plans Aguilera threatened to fire anyone who took part.
#5. Demi Lovato
Demi Lovato enjoyed breakout roles came from Disney. Her ‘Camp Rock’ days led to a movie and her own Disney show, ‘Sonny With a Chance.’ She seemed to have a quicker fall than her fellow cohorts, but is facing issues that seem equally as deep. Demi has been allegedly cutting herself as well as battling drug addictions, issues with alcohol and eating disorders. This all culminated in late 2010 after the starlet suffered a meltdown that resulted in Demi punching a back up dancer and landed her in rehab. Since then she seems to be genuine in her efforts towards recovery.
#4. Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus became the Queen of Disney with Hannah Montana Empire. She also has a lap dancing video, a bong smoking video, underage drinking photos, a string of alleged nude photos and outfits that would make hookers question the taste level. She has managed to keep herself out of rehab and jail, but judging from her father’s interview with GQ it’s only a matter of time.
#3. Lindsay Lohan
You only have to say her name to immediately think rehab, booze and terrible jewelry thieving skills. Lindsay Lohan can thank Disney’s rebooted version of ‘Parent Trap’ for her breakout success. Since then she has faced eating disorder rumors, cutting scars and a slew of legal trouble. She is in court more often than she is at work lately and creates a red flag everywhere she goes.
1-2. Britney Spears
She is worthy of two spots. Britney Spears rose fast and high only to fall equally as fast and twice as hard. She started as a Mouseketeer before she started her mogul machine. She seemingly started the race a mile ahead of Christina Aguilera and Jessica Simpson in the pop princess brigade. Britney operated on the wholesome virgin image while poorly hiding the fact that she enjoying boyfriends, weed and alcohol. This was just the beginning and almost innocent compared to her later antics involving a public meltdown that involved shaving her head. She has also managed to reheat her career and launch a comeback that is still enjoying stellar sales and a following that hasn’t lost much speed.
