Even the best actor/actress sometimes makes a terrible choice.

Which movie that almost killed his/her career, is most embarrassing for its leading star?

Added Dakota Fanning - The Cat in the Hat, to have a balance between male/female.

Unless somebody likes to suggest somebody else, the list looks quite complete now.

If we're counting directors, Mark Steven Johnson for Elektra. He actually had a lotta talent as a director, but that just destroyed his career.

That's actually a good suggestion for a new poll: directors who made a horrible movie that destroyed their career. Thanks!
