Jack Gleeson

Although not exactly a movie star, Game of Thrones actor Jack Gleeson deserves a spot on this list because of his shocking decision to quit acting altogether. At one point, Gleeson was on top of the world in his hit role as the arrogant, tyrannical King Joffrey on the HBO series. After his character was killed off however, he decided an early retirement was in order: “I just stopped enjoying it as much as I used to. I’m happy to sacrifice a big paycheck for my happiness.” So not only did we lose Joffrey, but we also lost Gleeson in one fell swoop.
