18 TV Stars Who Couldn’t Make It In Movies

It’s hard to believe now, but there was a time when films were considered infinitely more prestigious than television.

There was almost no crossover between TV stars and movie stars. When a television actor “graduated” to feature films, it was a massive achievement. If all went well, as it did for Bruce Willis and George Clooney, they would never again appear on the small screen. If a film star did show up on television, it was either stunt casting for a popular show (i.e. when Julia Roberts did an episode of Friends) or else it spelled certain doom for their career.

But then television got good. Shows like The Sopranos and The Wire were so impactful and cinematic that the lines between mediums began to blur. In this brave new world of streaming, there’s almost no difference between TV and movies besides running time. And yet, there are still some TV actors who can’t seem to cross over to celluloid.

It’s difficult to say why this happens. Whatever the reason, it means they won’t be getting those big paychecks and sweet summer jobs. Most of the actors on this list are still doing fine, and will probably pop up on our televisions indefinitely. You just won’t see them at a theater near you any time soon.

18 Celebrity Couples You Completely Forgot About

Maybe it’s the nature of the business that causes celebrity couples to burn white hot before blinking out of existence and fading from public memory. When you’re a really, really, ridiculously good looking actor, work often requires you to lay your emotions bare to an equally beautiful co-star. It’s understandable that many stars would find themselves unable to keep their paws off of one another in real life after pretending to do so for hours at a time on the job.

At one time, these now-forgotten duos were head-over-heals, and their escapades were the talk of the town. Not every couple on this list met on set, but most have since been in a more high profile or significant relationship. At times, it can feel like high school, with the constant intermingling and swapping. But when you think about it, you have to kiss a lot of super sexy frogs before finding the true love (that you will later divorce). In some cases, even though both parties were equally successful at the time of their union, only one of them has sustained their grade, or graduated to the A-List. In other cases, they remained equally famous, but had other celebrity waters to traverse.

Whatever the case, take a trip down memory lane with these 18 Celebrity Couples You Completely Forgot About.
