Celebrity train wrecks
Sure, it's a long way to the top, but sometimes it's even a longer drop to the bottom. Celebrity self-destruction is not for the faint of heart. Ask Lindsay Lohan about jewelry shopping or Charlie Sheen about doing stand-up. But not even Casey Jones could have averted the carnage of some of the more recent Hollywood train wrecks. Let's count down the top 10.
No. 10 David Arquette
David Arquette is best known for these movies, but until recently he's mostly been known as the brother of “Medium” star Patricia Arquette and Rosanna Arquette and Courteney Cox's husband.
No.9 Randy Quaid
He's best known for his quirky roles, including Cousin Eddie in the National Lampoon Vacation movies and the redneck rancher in "Brokeback Mountain."
No. 8 Tara Reid
Tara Reid had a small but memorable part in "The Big Lebowski" and a key role in a major hit "American Pie" before age 25.
No.7 Tom Sizemore
Tom Sizemore seemed to be on the road to a solid career as a supporting player following his performance as the sergeant in "Saving Private Ryan"
No.6 Britney Spears
The teen pop queen debuted with the single "Baby One More Time"  and went on to sell millions.
No.5 Whitney Houston
Whitney Houston's cover of a Dolly Parton song became one of the biggest hit singles in pop history.
No. 4 Andy Dick
Bizarre behavior is part of Andy Dick's comedy repertoire, but in the time since his stint on "NewsRadio," most of his craziness hasn't been an act.
No. 3 Lindsay Lohan
She's only 24, but Lindsay Lohan has already accomplished enough to merit a train wreck lifetime achievement award. Remember when a teenage Lindsay supposedly feuding with Hilary Duff was considered hot copy?
No. 2 Charlie Sheen
Charlie Sheen has appeared in quite a few hit films, including "Platoon," "Wall Street", "Young Guns" and "Major League."
No. 1 Mel Gibson
Why is Mel Gibson No. 1? Because the fall has been so steep. (Notice anyone else on this list who has won an Oscar?) He stormed the beaches in "Gallipoli," tore up the outback in "Mad Max," almost singlehandedly won the American Revolution – and now he's talking to a hand puppet?

The runners-up
Retired train wrecks: They've stayed out of trouble long enough to make us forget their former issues. Drew Barrymore and Robert Downey Jr. are the official poster children here. Special mention goes to Keith Richards, who clearly will never die.
