As Hollywood trends come and go, so does the need for certain actors. Many child actors never break into the industry, and many high-profile stars burn out after a couple of big jobs. Do you remember what these stars were in before they faded away?
Even though it's pretty weird, Taylor Lautner became a teenage sex symbol at the age of (probably) 14. He starred in early films like Sharkboy and Lavagirl and Cheaper By The Dozen 2 before taking a leading role as Jacob Black in The Twilight Saga. He won over the hearts of teenage girls everywhere after he made it big portraying the werewolf love interest.
Unfortunately, Lautner went from teenage sex symbol to teenage sellout, unable to book many gigs after the Twilight movies. He'd apparently peaked as a werewolf, and Hollywood wasn't invested in his career as it was in Robert Pattinson's. Now, he dates a normal college girl and lives a low-profile life.
