If You Don’t Think Harvey Weinstein Can Stage a Comeback, Think Again — Other Hollywood Celebrities Have Survived Major Scandals

Harry Weinstein has fallen from grace after several women, including some famous actresses, accused him of sexual misconduct. Despite the very serious allegation against him and the major Hollywood heavyweights distancing themselves from him, the movie mogul reportedly plans to continue working in the industry. Although that may not seem like a realistic possibility, it’s happened dozens of times with celebrities after news of their scandals died down. So it begs the question, would anyone ever sign on to work with Weinstein again?

Here’s a list of some of the stars who were involved in salacious or criminal behavior and were accepted back by their peers.

Charlie Sheen had plenty of run-ins with the law dating back to the ’90s, but he still landed gigs that made him one of the highest-paid actors on TV. In 2009, while starring on Two and a Half Men though, he was arrested for domestic violence against his then-wife, Brooke Mueller. After multiple stints in rehab, Sheen gave a string of bizarre interviews in 2011 about “his goddesses” and “winning,” as he appeared to be having a meltdown. He also attacked Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre and was fired from the show.

Despite public tirades that went on for months, Sheen was given another job starring in the TV show Anger Management, which ran for 100 episodes and ended in 2014.
