These 25 Celebrities Tried to Break Into the Food World — And Failed
Sure. You have successful celebrity restaurant openings, like Nobu or Planet Hollywood. But for every successful food venture, you’ll have two or three restaurants that totally and completely bomb. Remember Britney Spears’ Nyla? Steven Speilburg’s Dive!?
And beyond restaurants, slapping your name on a food product may come from a good place, but not every celebrity can have a successful food empire like Jessica Alba or Gwyneth Paltrow. Smokey Robinson tried to use his soul music roots to launch frozen pot roasts, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino sold $25 “couture” lollipops, and who can forget Donald Trump’s line of Sharper Image steaks?
