To some people being famous is a dream come true but A-list celebrities know that fame comes with a cost. Some become famous overnight but there are some whose glory days last as long as their perm. Whether their fame faded away because of an injury, they retired, or are a little overaged for a new role, these once-famous stars have real everyday jobs today.
Here are 10 celebrities who turned their life around and never looked back.
10. Shaquille O’ Neal
The famous NBA star who played alongside Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan didn’t hide in a cottage on a mountain when his sports career was over.

Now, Shaq has a business empire that consists of many restaurants, 150 car washes, gyms, and 17 Auntie’s Ann shops. Today, Shaq is one of the wealthiest athletes in the world, worth over $400 million.
