As the old saying, goes "the bigger they are, the harder they fall."
Off the face off the planet, that is. In the case of certain celebrities, they're rising superstars one day and mysteriously disappeared sort of has-beens the next.
We're not just asking where are they now. We're asking where are they AT ALL! Have you seen these people? They might as well be on milk cartons ...
While some stars make questionable job choices and inadvertently tank their own careers, the main reason celebrities leave the Hollywood lights is family.
Freddie Prinze, Jr. spends his time being a dad, and happily so.
Rachael Leigh Cook is raising her daughter with The Originals star Daniel Gillies after the two of them took five years off to film Broken Kingdom.
Jessica Alba ducked out of acting for the time being to focus on her children, Honor and Haven, and grow her green living brand, The Honest Company.
While their absences are explainable, even laudable, plenty of other celebrities seem to have no reason for their disappearances over the years.
Goes with the territory, right?
