10. Stephen Baldwin
Here’s another story of a beloved actor going broke. We all know (or at least are familiar with) Stephen Baldwin, the youngest of the Baldwin brothers. We loved him in The Usual Suspects, and we were against him when he was against his daughter’s relationship with Justin Bieber. With a recognizable Baldwin face, and a bunch of movies on your resume, how is it possible that you go broke?
Well, it’s simple – you just avoid paying taxes and credit card bills, for an extended period of time. Three years, to be precise. Stephen Baldwin was forced to file for bankruptcy protection in 2009 because his debts were bigger than $2 million. The latest news is that he managed to pay $400K (state taxes plus interest) to the creditors and now faces mortgage problems.
