Kirk Cameron was one of the biggest stars of the 80s. He was on the cover of roughly 500 magazines a year and was the star of one of biggest TV shows on air, Growing Pains, which made everyone fall completely head over heels in love with him.
His fame helped him land a bunch of roles in movies, but they never became the huge hits that the studios hoped. In all honesty, several of his movies were actually total flops even though they starred one of the most popular actors around.
Cameron started acting when he was only 13, but it was his role as Mike Seaver in Growing Pains that solidified his star status. The show had a huge impact on his life, even introducing him to his future wife, Chelsea Noble.
Between his endorsement deals, his magazine shoots, and his hit TV show, the teen was making over $50,000 per week at the height of his career. But now, when you hear his name it doesn't bring back the same joyful memories.
