Decency is the death knell to Hollywood careers. Even Taylor Swift, at the age of 25, and after making hundreds of millions of dollars, is trying to get rid of her squeaky clean image. Like most she is afraid to see her career fall as the public starts perceiving her as a goody two shoes. The list of people below all made their riches by trying to stay squeaky clean in the public's eye, but were unsuccessful because they all had the same human fatal flaws as the rest of us. This is Hollywood. It's pretty hard to stay faithful when you are surrounded by so many fans who'd give their left kidney to be with you, or so many people who spend millions staying beautiful. How do you stay faithful when to sell movie tickets, you need a steamy sex-scene with your co-star? Obviously not many people can. What's ironic is that many on this list didn't even cheat with someone famous. It seems the hired help poses a greater danger to a celebrity marriage than anything else. Maybe it's some teenage fetish that needs to be satisfied, who knows.
I am sure in a generation or two, cheating will not be the taboo it is today. But at least for now, cheating is still seen as the ultimate betrayal of trust between any couple, and trust is the foundation of any relationship. It's unfortunate that the public gets involved in something that is none of their business, as affairs should matter only to the people involved considering how often they occur. But everyone seems to associate themselves so much with the success of the celebrities they love and the failure of celebrities they hate, that it's almost natural that they take an interest in their personal lives. Very few celebrities fall from grace completely in the public's eye from an affair, with a few notable exceptions. It takes a little more. Even Tiger Woods can still attract millions of viewers after such a disgrace, but somehow you know that image is tainted in the back of the public's mind.

This is the man that I think broke all of our hearts. Hollywood is famous for making people ultra-rich by having a bad boy/girl reputation. The badder your image, the richer you got. Bill was everyone's father whose fortune came from comedic performances that were also G-Rated. He was supposed to be the guy that proved to the world that Hollywood had room for everyone. Next thing you know, even Ray Romano and Tina Fey will be in the headlines. Where is the world going to? The story of Bill requires an article all of its own. Although not convicted of anything yet in courts, he has been accused by countless women of sexual assault. In the public's eye he is already guilty. In reality, you can have one or two accusers, maybe 3 with Bill's super clean image, but not more than 12. There is something wrong with this picture. Not that his actual life was squeaky clean, but image and perception is everything and man did Bill ever have that image. Luckily for him, his family is standing by him though, so are the people who know him well, which depending on whose side you're on, could be a good or bad thing.
