With so many actors working well into old age, it’s still surprising when one of them decides to retire, especially for reasons not related to their age or health. Some leave the industry to pursue other ventures or spend time with their family. Some have terrible experiences in the industry they can’t imagine working there again and some just don’t want to work anymore.
But why shouldn’t they? With the millions of dollars, these acting moguls accumulate every year, most of them could retire before they hit 40. Even though their careers end, many actors leave behind legacies that last for decades.
