|Jean Dujardin and Berenice Bejo star in The Artist|
Hollywood is notoriously fickle. One day an artist is the toast of the town, and the next, forgotten like yesterday’s news. Shirley Temple was a case in point. When she grew up and was no longer seen as the adorable, dimple-cheeked curly top and box office winner, the studio quickly took down her star and showed her the door. Or Veronica Lake, the famous sexy star of Hollywood’s Golden Age, who quickly faded into obscurity when she was deemed as no longer “hot,” and was discovered years later waitressing in Mexico.
