Many dream of being an actor, but only a few make it big! Some of the most famous personalities then decide to take a career break or to give up their careers altogether. For example, Jane Fonda (85), Cameron Diaz (50), Lindsay Lohan (36) and Brendan Fraser (54). But they are all now back in the film business. Why did they decide to pause their successful careers and then come back?

Jane Fonda originally planned to quit acting altogether after getting married in 1991. “I didn’t think I was going to come back. When I married Ted, I thought it was forever,” she explained Entertainment Tonight. After their divorce in 2001, Jane returned to the big screen in 2005’s ‘Monster In Law’. In 2014, Cameron Diaz also decided to turn his back on acting: “There were so many things in my life that I had nothing to do with. My decision to pause my career made me feel good,” she explained “Hard to Heart”. Her return this year is due in part to Jamie Foxx (55), who recommended her the role.

Lindsay Lohan landed her last leading role in 2013, after which she became quiet. In 2022, the actress returned to the screens in the Netflix film “Falling for Christmas”: “It’s like riding a bike. It’s a part of me”Lindsay explained The Hollywood Reporters. Things are also going well for Lindsay privately, so she announced a few weeks ago that she was going to be a mother. Brendan Fraser also involuntarily paused his career. He felt he had been blacklisted by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. After more than ten years, Brendan returned to the big screen. He received an Oscar in 2023 for his role in “The Whale”.
