15. Michael Schoeffling
After his part in 1984’s Sixteen Candles, Michael Schoeffling was set to become one of that decade’s biggest hunks. Unfortunately, fatherhood and a shortage of acting jobs forced the star out of the spotlight, and he eventually quit showbiz in 1991. Schoeffling now works as a carpenter in Virginia, where he keeps a pretty low profile.
14. Danny Lloyd
Danny Lloyd gave film fans everywhere nightmares when he appeared as creepy, psychic namesake Danny in 1980’s The Shining. Despite his start in horror cinema, though, Lloyd went on to enjoy an altogether more genial career after giving up acting aged 14. Indeed, the former child actor can now be found in Louisville working as a biology teacher.
