It's been a long, hard road for Natasha Lyonne, who made her name as a teen star in films such as "Krippendorf's Tribe" and "Slums of Beverly Hills," and continued her success with the "Pie" franchise, "But I'm a Cheerleader," "Scary Movie 2," "Kate & Leopold" and "Blade: Trinity."
Unfortunately, her life began to unravel when she was arrested for DUI in 2001, and yet again for harrassment and trespassing in 2004. In 2005, Lyonne was admitted to the hospital with hepatitis C, a heart infection and a collapsed lung. She also did a stint in rehab for heroin addiction and was reportedly homeless.
Lyonne, now 35, began her comeback in 2008 and has since appeared on Broadway ("Two Thousand Years"), television ("Orange Is the New Black") and film ("American Reunion"). —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: Jason Merritt/Getty)
