Celebrities have a shelf life. Sometimes we get lucky with a Judy Dench or an Anthony Hopkins and it’s OK to leave them out a little longer. Then we have the celebs who have been on the shelf for a little too long and are starting to smell a little funny. Those are the ones you wish would just throw in the towel and be forgotten with their names worn off of their stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
We are all thinking of the same people, so let’s get through this list of the top 12 stars of Tinseltown who should retire, starting with probably the most obvious one.
12. Kim Kardashian
Let’s get this one out of the way. We’re all sick of hearing about her and her husband… what’s his name? We don’t care anymore. Ok, there are literally millions of you out there who still care, but it’s time to move on. We’re here to help.
11. Sylvester Stallone
This one hurts a little bit. Rocky was wonderful and he is an action legend. He took a three-year hiatus after Spy Kids 3D: Game Over to make 2006’s Rocky Balboa. Since then, his filmography is chock-full of boxing flicks and Expendables sequels. Sly, it’s time to hang up the gloves.
10. Hulk Hogan
I think even his fans are whispering to the side, “maybe it’s time he calls it.” It’s been an amazing run from electrifying arenas to films(?) and then his own reality series that subsequently broke up his family. But you have to ask yourself, would you quit if you were the Hulkster?
9. Janet Jackson
The youngest member of the “First Family of Soul” is the only artist in history to receive Grammy nominations in five genres. The only major controversy of her career shocked the world, changed legislation and unleashed the term “wardrobe malfunction” upon us. At this point, I think she’s just showing off.
