Celebrity Parents Who Left Acting And Hollywood For Their Children

Parenting is not getting easier anytime soon. While some busy individuals tire themselves day and night to balance their work-life and parenting life, some just give up one or the other. One of the tedious jobs that hamper parenting is being a celebrity. If it was already not tiring to deal with a boatload of people, having to provide the best for children can take a serious toll.

Keeping parenting as a celebrity in mind, we have put together a list of seven celebrity parents who left acting and Hollywood for their children.

Demi Moore 

Demi Moore is quite a recognizable name in the film industry. After debuting in 1997, Demi went on to establish herself as a wonderful actress. After a previous failed marriage, Demi was married to actor Bruce Willis for more than a decade. Together the couple has three wonderful children Rumer Willis, Scout Willis, and Tallulah Willis, who have grown up like a charm.

After having three wonderful kids, Demi decided to take a break from acting to focus on parenthood. By the looks of it, her sacrifice has finally paid off. Now it’s time for her kids to live up to their mother’s sacrifice and finally make her proud.

Rick Moranis

If you have heard the name Rick Moranis you probably know him from the movie ‘Honey I Shrunk The Kids.’ While he has been a prominent actor for more than a decade, he finally decided to take a break when he became a father. Rick quit acting after his daughter Rachel Moranis.

Rick has proven himself more than capable as an actor. After her daughter’s birth, Rick also proved himself a more than capable father. Rick’s daughter has grown up like a charm, and by the looks of it, nothing is going to beat it. While Rick continues to become a wonderful father, his daughter is also growing up to become someone whom her father can feel proud of.

Halle Berry

Halle Berry is no stranger in Hollywood. After establishing herself as a successful model, she gained quite a lot of popularity, which enabled her to get into acting. Her career was going ever so smoothly, but the actress decided to take a break and focus on raising her kids.

Julia Roberts

But even Julia had to take a break from her beloved acting career after it hampered her children’s well-being. America’s sweetheart also had to be a sweet mom and take care of her three kids Hazel Moder, Henry Daniel Moder, and Phinnaeus Moder. Her temporary departure from acting was solely dedicated to parenting, and we are bound to see the progress in it.

Dave Chapelle

Dave Chapelle is a well-known American stand up comedian and actor. The 47-year-old has been prominently making his audience laugh out in joy through his comedic roles. But even Dave had to take time off after he became a father. The father of three children has been incredible in reel and real life. His role as a father has echoed throughout his childhood and will continue forever.

Michael Schoeffling

The 16 Candles’ star Michael Schoeffling was a heartthrob back in the day. While someone with as much respect and admiration for one’s work as Michael, it’s pretty hard to imagine he will ever quit it. But Michael, too, like everyone else on this list, had to take his sweet time off to focus on parenthood.
