20 Stars Disney Will Never Hire Again

The Walt Disney Company is not a business you want to mess with. They are one of the biggest companies in the world with a very clean reputation, and that is because they want to keep it that way. They will protect their own brand at all costs.

So when they have one of their actors, either from one of their films or television show, step out of line and become more trouble than they are worth, Disney cuts ties with them, permanently.

That could be why Disney is so quick to pull the trigger on firing, or refusing to work with, an actor. They know the importance of moving on and making sure actors understand that if they screw up, their relationship will forever be over with.

Let's take a look at the 20 Stars Disney Will Never Hire Again.

20 Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger)

If you have still not seen Disney's The Lone Ranger, then you are not missing out. It was supposed to be Disney's big summer blockbuster in 2013 but turned into a gigantic bomb. Armie Hammer was not the only reason it failed— he blames the media for it anyways.

Until he can show Disney that he can handle playing a title role for a summer blockbuster film, his chances of ever working with them in the future is slim to none.

19 Terrence Howard (Iron Man)

Although actors have rights, and the ability to fight for more money whenever they want, there are times when you should simply get in line and keep your mouth shut. Terrence Howard has never been that man and it led to his departure from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which is now owned by Disney.

His behavior and reputation for being difficult to work with came back to bite him in the end. He was apparently offered less money for Iron Man 2 as an insult, knowing he was not going to accept.

18 Bella Thorne (Shake It Up)

Most of the Disney child actors that remain in the Hollywood spotlight long after their kid acting days end up giving juicy details about their time working for Disney. There are very few, if any, that tell positive stories either.

Bella Thorne is a perfect example as she has spent the last few years speaking out about the sexual harassment she encountered her entire childhood in Hollywood. She even talked about nearly being fired after posting a picture of herself in a bikini when she was just 14 years old.

17 Chloe Grace Moretz (Bolt)

Now that she is all grown up, Chloe Grace Moretz couldn't care less about what happened in 2008 when Disney chose her to be the voice of Penny, the lead character on the animated film Bolt. But back then, that was going to end up being her big break until she started filming and was replaced midway through filming.

They replaced her with Miley Cyrus but kept her lines from the beginning of the film as a Young Penny. She wound up still becoming a household name and has since been in several films but will never return to Disney.

16 Zac Efron (High School Musical)

The only one who did not think Zac Efron's 2009 appearance as the host of Saturday Night Live was funny was Disney. That might be because he was in a skit that made fun of High School Musical by destroying everything about it and even making fun of Walt Disney.

That has led to Disney making sure not to rehire him for any of their films. It is not like he is standing in line hoping they do anyways because he has moved on and so have they.

15 PewDiePie (Revelmode Network)

What exactly did Disney think was going to happen when they decided to hire PewDiePie to join their companies brand? Did they not see any of his previous YouTube work?

Of course he was going to get involved in a controversial video, it was only a matter of time. He got himself involved in a joint venture with Disney called the Revelmode Network, but after a couple of videos he posted featured antisemitic comments, they cut ties with him immediately and shut down the partnership.

14 Demi Lovato (Camp Rock)

Hollywood needs more Demi Lovatos. Ever since getting her big break as a Disney child actor in the film Camp Rock, she has blown up into an international superstar who speaks up against bullying and eating disorders. She stands up for those that can't do it themselves.

She has even been one of the most openly critical of Disney since leaving the company. Her main reason for criticizing them was because of the pressure they put on her to lose weight by any means possible, even encouraging her eating disorder.

13 Miley Cyrus (Hannah Montana)

As we have already seen many times, Disney will take full advantage of their child actors who are superstars. They will make sure they get every single dollar of revenue they can milk from their popularity and Miley Cyrus was one of their biggest stars ever.

Miley told Elle Magazine all about her time working for Disney and it was not pretty. She was a huge star, but was still given low ball offers when negotiating her contract. She even claims to be the lowest paid person on her show, if that is believable.

12 Johnny Depp (Pirates Of The Caribbean)

When celebrities have a fall from grace, it is normally epic. For Johnny Depp, it was anything but normal and he blames Amber Heard for all of it.

He was actually going to be in the sixth Pirates of the Caribbean film until her allegations about domestic abuse made him a liability for Disney. They quickly cut him from the film to get away from the negative press and are in the process of rebooting it anyways.

11 Selena Gomez (Wizards Of Waverly Place)

via kingoftheflatscreen.com

At some point in any actor's career, they need to begin branching out and expressing themselves as an artist and not just a child actor that works for Disney. Selena Gomez reached that point in 2012, and she expressed herself by starring in Spring Breakers.

She also produced the Netflix series Thirteen Reasons Why, which is about bullying in high school because of her time working for Disney. Her personal experience with being bullied was her ultimate motivation.

10 Roseanne Barr (Roseanne)

By now you should know that anything you do or say on the internet, will live there forever. Just ask James Gunn. His recent firing and hiring back over an ancient Twitter posting  showcased just how important social media has become.

So when Roseanne Barr used her Twitter to post a series of racist tweets that were bizarre to say the least, ABC quickly made the decision to fire her. It was not pretty, but neither were her irresponsible posts.

9 Edward Norton (The Incredible Hulk)

Ever since Disney purchased Marvel Studios, the casting process for their comic book superhero films has been nearly perfect. That's because Disney is now financing the films and they do not hire a certain type of actor.

Edward Norton is one of those types of actors that Disney does not like to work with because of how difficult he can be during the filming process. He had a chance to be The Incredible Hulk but was not asked to return because of how difficult he was to work with. That's also a big reason why he has not been in another Disney film since.

8 Lindsay Lohan (The Parent Trap, Freaky Friday)

via hdcelebritywallpaper.com

Being a troubled celebrity in Hollywood is not something we have never heard of before. There is always going to be juicy scandals involving celebrities but only a few of them make it a habit. Sadly, Lindsay Lohan turned into one after being one of the biggest names working for Disney.

Although she has since cleaned up and is working on a comeback, Disney will not work with any former child star that has struggled to keep that wholesome image they protect so dearly.

7 Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical)

via wiki.com

Shortly after turning 18 years old, the former High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens, found herself in the middle of a nude photo scandal, in 2007. Apparently, Zac Efron had taken nude photos of Vanessa on a cell phone and they somehow got leaked.

This happened just as she was negotiating to be in High School Musical 3: Senior Year and led to false rumors about Disney firing her. But since that franchise was such a hit, they allowed her to film the third one. She has not returned to a Disney film since.

6 Brian Bonsall (Blank Check)

via twitter.com

Life changes all the time. One day you are a child actor playing Michael J. Fox's little brother on Family Ties and the next you are starring in your own Disney film about a kid who gets handed a blank check. After all of that, you find yourself moving away from Hollywood to give yourself a normal life in Colorado.

Brian Bonsall lived this life and after working for Disney in 1994, has not done any acting at all. He has been involved with multiple arrests for assaulting his girlfriend and drug usage. He now plays in a band and will never be making an appearance on any Disney films anytime soon.

5 Jake Paul (Bizaardvark)

via dexerto.com

If you were to look up annoying in the dictionary, you would find a tiny picture of Jake Paul, one of the most annoying YouTubers ever hired by Disney. Not only will he do just about anything to become famous, Jake goes out of his way to make the lives of his neighbors a living hell.

But after he was hired by Disney to star in Bizaardvark, he had to follow their rules, or pay the price. He did not and ended up being fired from his show, for good. Maybe next time he will not burn all that furniture.

4 Mitchel Musso (Hannah Montana)

via wiki.com

Although it was Hannah Montana where Mitchel Musso got his big break, he ended up being a much bigger star on the Disney Channel when he voiced Jeremy Johnson in Phineas and Ferb and also was cast to be King Brady on Pair of Kings.

He then got his own show, PrankStars, which he was the host. However, at just 20 years old, he was pulled over by the police and charged with a DUI suspicion. Although he never served any jail time, that incident led to Disney cutting ties with him.

3 Rowan Blanchard (Girl Meets World)

via teenvogue.com

Fans would still like to know exactly why Girl Meets World was cancelled abruptly following the third season. Disney never gave a real answer to the question and left the cast just as confused, especially Rowan Blanchard.

The rumors made it sound as if Rowan was to blame but the cast banded together to dispel those lies. However, since Disney cancelled the show, she has come forth and spoke about how much more freedom she now has to be herself and that Disney was very controlling over her image and what she was able to do.

2 Stoney Westmoreland (Andi Mack)

via yahoo.com

In Salt Lake City last year, police detectives used a fake profile of an underage boy on Grindr to uncover yet another pedophile roaming the streets of America. Only this time, it was Stoney Westmoreland, the grandfather on the Disney show Andi Mack.

He was later charged with six felony counts for trying to have sex with a 13-year old boy. He even had sent nude photos of himself to the fake profile. Needless to say, Disney is never going to be hiring Stoney again, he might not even get another acting job again.

1 Shia LaBeouf (Even Stevens)

via hdcoolwallpaper.com

At just 33 years old, Shia LaBeouf's acting career is far from over. He is just in a bit of a growing up period where he is trying to figure out exactly who he is as an artist. It started with his first arrest in 2014 for disorderly conduct at Studio 54 theater in New York. He has had multiple legal problems and run-in's with the law since, isolating himself from the rest of Hollywood.

Given his bad reputation, and countless arrests, it is safe to say that Disney is no longer interested in hiring him, for any of their companies.
