10) Greta Garbo

One of the most beautiful actresses of her time, Greta Garbo was thought to have a very long and successful future ahead in films. However, in 1941 she chose to leave Hollywood and acting because she never felt comfortable doing it. She lived a very normal but reclusive life for almost 50 years after that until her death. No interviews, autographs, or personal appearances were made after her retirement. She is quoted as say that “I want to just be left alone.”
