John Malkovich, Actor

John Malkovich, known for "Dangerous Liasons" and "Red," lost millions in Madoff's scam, which he later revealed was his entire savings. According to an interview with The Irish Times, Malkovich and his partner Nicoletta Peyran followed the advice of a business manager and invested with Madoff. The decision came at a cost, and the actor revealed, "Everything I'd ever made was gone."

Despite being financially devastated, Malkovich kept a steadfast attitude which helped him move forward. "I don't think it mattered that much. We just made changes to the way we lived and the money we spent . . . I had to do more work that paid for a number of years, and work all the time. And I stopped paying for everything. I just stopped paying for friends and family for a time," the "Being John Malkovich" actor explained.
