The movie she acted in has not been released yet. That only means she had potential to be a celebrity after the movie came out.

We exclude picks who are primarily famous for being ill/distressed, and this looks for all the world like such a case.
Sara Rue is a very bad comparison. She was the star of her own sitcom that ran 4 seasons. She has 58 credits on IMDB many of which she was number 1 or 2 on the call sheet. She had a public struggle with her weight.* I don’t think anyone would question the validity of the star of a 4 season sitcom even if it wasn’t a runaway hit.

* I mention that because it meant stories on shows like Entertainment Tonight.
