Eric Roth, Screenwriter of "Forrest Gump" and "A Star is Born"

Acclaimed screenwriter Eric Roth, known for Oscar-winning films like "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," "A Star is Born" (2018), and "Forrest Gump," lost $250 million to Madoff. In Jan. 2009, Roth sued his financial manager, Stanley Chais, for mismanaging his money and negligence, according to Business Insider.

"I'm the biggest sucker who ever walked the face of the Earth...But the tragedy is the people who lost their life savings and their dreams," Roth told The LA Times in 2008 after Madoff's arrest.
