Actors Giving It All Up

I often thought if i was a well paid movie star, i would rock up for a couple of films, swell my bank balance astronomically and then just bugger off and get a proper job with my reputation, fame and place in film history untarnished.    
Seems a few big names did just that such as the mustachioed, Hawaiian shirt wearing Tom Selleck who had a good run in the '80s and '90s but gave it all up to but a farm and grow avocados.
Rick Moranis of the 80s banked the cheques from Little Shop of Horrors, Ghostbusters and Honey I shrunk the Kids and just stopped turning up at film sets anymore.
To be fair to him it was after his wife died of breast cancer but with his best acting years coming 20 years, he now admits he sits in his room playing with his computer.
Freddie Prinze Jr did it the right way, turned up for I Know What You Did last Summer and Scooby Doo and then just gave it up although he did marry Buffy or Sarah Michelle Geller as she is also known.
Unfortunately Sylvester Stallone, Nicolas Cage and Steven Seagal kept at it.
