Everyone, including those who have sold their souls to bed, munching chocolate and sipping milk, want to make it to the hall of fame. The earlier, the better we would prefer.
The irony, however, is that there are so many who got there, quite early too and wished they never made the journey. To them, it is actually the hell of fame.
It gets interestingly sad that these were kids we loved and wanted to be like, or at least our kids to be like. They were the ones we thought had the world. That is until fame made the world crash on them.
Here are some of them that got lost in the hell of fame:
Culkin was the darling Home Alone kid actor. He began acting in 1988, but got famous for Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. As a child, he acted in other movies including Jacob ’s ladder, Richie Rich, Uncle Buck, My Girl and The Good Son.
Culkin became one of the most successful child actors before he got out of acting when he was only 14. He married Rachel Miner in 1998 and the marriage ended in 2002. Culkin got caught in the hell of fame when he took to drugs, and was jailed in 2004.
His looks affirm that he did not quite survive his journey through the hell of fame. While he still acts, he is more into music with a band called Pizza Underground.

By 13 she had taken to alcohol and weed and soon she was into cocaine. She sought for rehabilitation at 14 and at 15 she got herself a place away from her mother and got a job. While she continued to walk in the hell of fame for many years to come, she would later have her life in order to a very large extent.
