What does it take to get a redemption arc? Is it a sincere, heartfelt apology? An in-depth TV interview?

Depending on the accusations, celebrities use various approaches to repair their image in order to creep back into and reclaim the spotlight. Shia LaBeouf, sued for repeated abuse and assault claims against ex-girlfriend FKA twigs, says he "found his way" after becoming a first-time father and converting to Catholicism.

According to Vanity Fair and Insider, Armie Hammer, the former "golden boy" of cinema, checked into a treatment facility after allegations of cannibalism, rape and abuse emerged. And Johnny Depp is working to restore his acting career after yearslong legal battles with ex-wife Amber Heard, as unsealed documents contained more allegations against him – including claims that Depp's injury photographs were manipulated.
