Mean Girls is not just a popular Hollywood movie. They're real and they exist in Tinseltown. In any case, no one should be even slightly surprised by this, considering the exclusivity of Hollywood. Every year, hundreds, even thousands, of girls venture off to Hollywood, in the hopes of getting discovered and becoming a big star. However, with endless competition and few opportunities, only a handful of these girls actually make it big. Hollywood is a dog eat dog world and unfortunately, the battle to be in the spotlight and stay relevant can bring out the worst in people. Although, Hollywood may seem like it's filled with glitz and glam -- it's not all rainbows and sunshine. Instead, it's filled with real life Mean Girl's that have absolutely no problem lashing-out at fellow celebs, cast mates, crew members and even their own fans. Whether they broke the rules of feminism by dating ex-boyfriends, publicly humiliated their peers or have just plain and simple, dished it out - these celebrities have been known to unleash a slight catty side. Here is a list of Hollywood's 12 Biggest Mean Girls.
12 Christina Aguilera
11 Kim Kardashian
10 Ariana Grande
9 Jennifer Lopez
8 Katherine Heigl
From 2007 - 2010, Katherine Heigl's career was seemingly on fire. She was on the hit TV series Grey's Anatomy and was starring in films like Knocked Up, The Ugly Truth and Killers. Heigl was at the height of her career and it seemed like nothing could stand in her way, well, except for herself. Reports surfaced that Heigl was extremely difficult to work with, because she was demanding and rude. Cast mates and crew members noted that Heigl would question the script everyday, would refuse to leave her trailer and would always demand her wardrobes to be redone. Heigl made her bad attitude public, when she openly criticized the film Knocked Up, calling it sexist and then, criticized the writers of Grey's Anatomy. By 2011, Katherine's career hit rock bottom with two box office flops in a row. It appears people were unwilling to pay to see a mean girl.
7 Gwyneth Paltrow
6 Lindsay Lohan
Given her career track record, it should come as no surprise that Lindsay Lohan would be coined a Hollywood Mean Girl. From boyfriend-stealing (Aaron Carter from Hilary Duff), to broken friendships (Kim Kardashian, Nicole Richie), to celebrity feuds (Paris Hilton, Scarlett Johansson), to even hooking up with friends' ex-boyfriends (Paris Hilton's ex, Stavros Niarchos III). The only issue is, we can't help but question, is Lindsay Lohan an actress playing a Mean Girl, or a Mean Girl playing an actress?
5 Gabrielle Union
In 2013, while accepting the Essence Fierce and Fearless award, Gabrielle Union openly admitted to being a mean girl in the past, saying, “I lived for the negativity inflicted upon my sister actresses or anyone who I felt whose shine diminished my own. I took joy in peoples pain and I tap-danced on their misery." That's just cold. However, there's been no recent reports of Gabrielle Union being a mean girl, so let's hope she's crossed over to the nice side. Then again, can a mean girl cross over?
4 Nicki Minaj
3 Paris Hilton
Rihanna uses Instagram and Twitter to play out her mean girl antics. She’s verbally assaulted Chris Brown's on-again-off-again girlfriend, Karrueche Tran and poked fun at Ciara, adding fuel to a long-time feud. But RiRi's worst offenses are her making fun of fans. The R&B singer posted a side-by-side pic of a fan and a goat, and asked her #RihannaNavy to find the difference. Rihanna did the same thing to a fan who Tweeted a picture of herself in a dress that she said was inspired by Rihanna. The pop star responded by Instagramming the photo with a frowny face and comparing the fan to a bat. It's one thing to feud with fellow celebrities, but making fun of fans -- that's a serious no-no, RiRi.
