Getting fired sucks. Always. However not all firing scenarios are created equal, and some clearly suck more than others. Say, for instance; you’re an actor or actress who was fired while on set. That can’t be fun at all. Worse still, if you’re actor or actress who was fired, but only after all your scenes were filmed, and the director kinda sorta realized that you weren’t the best fit for the production after all. Nope, still not fun.
It probably happens more often than you’d think. In fact, we’ve rounded up a list of 21 instances of it happening. Knowing what we know about the fickle nature of Hollywood, it’s probably safe to say that the 21 actors and actresses listed in this slideshow are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to losing a job in less than ideal circumstances.
