But not Nikki Blonsky.
The actress enjoyed a moderately successful career, starring in Hairspray and Huge, among other gigs, but the acting well then dried up. Now? She's behind the register at a shoe store in her hometown of Great Neck, New York.
"[Owner Steven Dann] says she's one of the best employees he's ever had!" a source tells E! News. "Nikki had known Steven for a long time. When she started her career she got shoes, bags and accessories from the store for red carpets but recently approached him about working at the store."
Blonsky might return to the entertainment world at some point. But for now it's nice to see a grounded young woman simply understanding the hand she's been dealt and playing those cards as best she can, Twitter-free and reality show-free, isn't?
