No one is without sin – and even people who, it would seem, are the standard, an example to follow, even they sometimes have significant flaws. First of all, these are various bad habits. How often we hear that one or another star died due to the use of narcotic substances – almost every year this happens. But after all, no less and actors of alcoholics. Perhaps their death or their problems do not become such loud scandalous sensations, but the harm from this is no less. How many careers and simple lives were ruined by “devils in a bottle”. Let’s look at a few examples that are quite revealing. It is clear that this is not a final sample – these are just examples, in fact, a very large number of actors (many of whom are famous and great) were addicted to alcohol.
A true role model, a person with an amazing history and millions of talents. He was a talented poet, and an outstanding musician, whose voice was recognized by every inhabitant of the USSR, and an excellent actor, convincing and truthful – in a word, a real star of considerable proportions. But there was an insulting fly in the ointment in this barrel of honey – this, of course, was the abuse of alcohol. Moreover, the abuse is quite strong. As a result, a person whose songs were often feasting, personally became one of the victims of such “feasts”. So now this is a vivid example that illustrates that no talent can help, even such an exceptional one, if a person abuses alcohol – alcoholics – they are alcoholics in Africa. You can learn more about Vladimir’s relationship with alcoholic beverages in numerous biographies – no researcher in his life has ever ignored this topic. And not only because of its “scandalousness”, but also because it is a very revealing example of how not to act.
A favorite of the public, the star of many popular films that watched more than one generation. But in the end it was not so good. The actor died in Odessa, while another film was shot with his participation, which was supposed to be “Liquidation”. Unfortunately, the frequent use of alcohol provoked a rather extensive stroke in him – and, as already understood, the actor died. He is still remembered with respect, but only without the alcoholic past he could have lived clearly for more than 49 years – and please us with even more interesting roles.
Whitney Houston is better known as a singer – but still, many remember her as the lead singer in the film “The Bodyguard.” At one time it was a real hit, because Whitney entered the pantheon of popular and beloved actresses. True, she could not reach the same level in the future, she no longer had the same popular roles, but that would be okay. Much worse is how her life ended. In her last years, the singer and actress actively consumed alcohol. And went too far in this use. She had certain problems, but instead of solving them, she preferred to simply drown them – and this, of course, is never an option. As a result, she died in her own bathroom, leaving millions of fans around the world without her idol. And was the game worth the candle?
Another real idol of millions, the author of a huge number of interesting roles, among which, probably the most remembered is the role of trucker in the television series of the same name. However, he had problems in his creative and personal life, which he mistakenly tried to “heal” with alcohol. But only this led to the fact that a peculiar vicious circle arose in his life. He tried to cope with depression with alcoholic drinks, but drinking alcohol eventually drove him into even greater depression. Of course, this did not end with anything good – at only 39 years old he died of cardiac arrest.
This actor did not die from alcohol, but was close to this – he ended up in a rehabilitation clinic after allowing himself to drink while driving. Moreover, after that he became very aggressive and uncontrollable – many of his nervous breakdowns recorded on video were watched on the Internet, and to put it mildly, they did not please anyone. The result, unfortunately, was deplorable – although Mel is now in good health, he hasn’t had particularly large roles for a long time, because no one is particularly interested in working with him. And all the alcohol.
Many other famous actors have also, to one degree or another, encountered the harmful effects of alcoholic beverages on their lives. This is considered a real curse by Mikhail Efremov, who knows firsthand what it is to suffer from alcohol dependence. Drew Barrymore got so addicted to alcohol so early that she had to undergo rehabilitation not at a mature age, as is usually the case, but at only thirteen years old. Fortunately, now the situation is absolutely normal, after rehabilitation she did not drink for about ten years. A striking example of a career ruined by alcohol is Lindsay Lohan. Once she was one of the most promising Hollywood stars, but then she simply threw all her chances for a good career into the pipe – and now she looks ten to twenty years older than her age due to the consequences of drinking alcohol.
As we can see, eminent personalities can be not only typical role models, but, on the contrary, quite negative examples. This does not make people less talented, of course. It is clear that precisely as creative personalities they will remain vivid role models. But it is desirable that they remain as such just as actors. But in life they do not need to imitate. After all, alcoholism just does not make them more talented. On the contrary, for many this did not allow them to reach the heights they deserved. And for some, this completely led to an annoying death at an age in which, it would seem, still create and create. But alcohol is merciless. He does not look whether a person is famous or not.
It is important to remember that in ordinary people the chances of suffering from alcohol addiction are even higher. Yes, the actors are the same people, but sometimes they have enough resources to help themselves when it finally comes to them that they are doing everything wrong, that they are ruining themselves, that it can end very badly for them at all levels. Do you have such opportunities? Hardly. So remember that any alcoholics, ordinary, great, famous — it doesn’t matter — it’s just alcoholics.
