Many of our favorite movie and television stars have fallen on hard times and in some cases, have completely disappeared from the limelight for years at a time. Robert Downey Jr. had one of the most memorable falls of all time at the peak of his career. From 1996 to 2001, Downey was in and out of jails and prison due to the use of drugs including cocaine and heroin.

After a 2003 intervention, Downey was able to recover his life and career. The actor has now been sober for the past decade and is one of the hottest and most respected actors in the world.
