Celebrities have a great life – they’re famous, rich, and are loved and admired by people all over the world. It’s not an easy life by any means, but it is – or can be – a comfortable life. However, being famous comes at a cost, the cost being their privacy.
Almost everything that celebrities do becomes public. Fans can criticize or praise every choice that a celebrity makes, whether it’s related to fashion or love. And of course, fans can also criticize and praise a celebrity’s character – their personality, kindness and human decency.
While at the start of their careers, some celebrities appear to be extremely nice and down to earth, but with time they can turn into despicable human beings that are capable of indecent acts such as nastiness to their fans or physical violence towards their loved ones. Some of these despicable acts are worse than others, but regardless of just how bad they are, they still make us hate our beloved celebrities.
15 Halle Berry Crashed Into A Car And Left The Scene
It’s always a despicable act to crash into someone else’s car and then leave the scene of the crash. And yet people do it all the time. Celebrities do it all the time too. Take Halle Berry for example. Remember that time when she crashed into another female driver and left the scene of the crash as if nothing happened?
The accident left Berry with a forehead gash that required 22 stitches whereas the other female driver was left with a broken wrist and other injuries. Unsurprisingly, the latter sued Berry.
Luckily for Berry, she got off with three years’ probation, a $13,500 fine and 200 hours of community service.
14 Robert Pattinson Dissed Twilight Fans
To Robert Pattinson’s dismay, he is, and probably always will be, best known for his role as Edward Cullen in the Twilight saga. His attempts to reinvent himself and take on different film roles have been futile so far.
However, we think it is fair to say that Pattinson should be grateful for the role that essentially launched him into stardom. But he is not. Instead, Pattinson makes fun of the Twilight saga whenever he can. He once said that in his opinion Twilight seems like “a book that wasn’t supposed to be published.”
In addition, Pattinson has also poked fun at Twilight fans: “The real odd thing about this ‘Twilight’ target group is that they aren’t really teenagers. Most of them are older. [...] Sometimes I ask myself what these masses of people do the whole day. They sit in front of their computers and comment on anything having even remotely to do with Twilight.”
13 Michael Jackson Left A Nasty Voicemail In Which He Called Jews 'Leeches'
The King of Pop is another anti-Semitic celebrity. In 2003, Michael Jackson left a nasty rant about Jews on the former advisors, Mark Schaffel’s, answering machine.
In his rant, Jackson compared Jews to “leeches” and claimed that they were conspiring against everybody – “They’re like leeches. I’m so tired of it. They start out the most popular person in the world, make a lot of money, big house, cars, and everything. End up penniless. It is a conspiracy. The Jews do it on purpose.” Of course, the rant was leaked and caused quite a shock.
12 Julia Roberts Bullied Her Sister To The Point Of No Return
Apparently the actress Julia Roberts is not a very nice person. Her half-sister Nancy Motes has previously confessed that the Pretty Woman actress used to bully her all the time – “When I was in high school and she was an adult, she would just let me know that I was definitely overweight. She would make it clear to me and in a not-so-nice a manner.”
Roberts’ bullying led Motes to undergo gastric bypass surgery and then to commit suicide. According to Motes fiancé, John Dilbeck, in her suicide note Motes blamed Roberts and her family for her decision to commit suicide. The note apparently said – “My mother and so-called 'siblings' get nothing except the memory that they are the ones that drove me into the deepest depression I have ever been in.”
11 Chris Brown Physically Assaulted Rihanna
Remember that time when the singer Chris Brown physically assaulted his then-girlfriend Rihanna? Apparently, their relationship at the time was not that great – Rihanna had found out that Brown had a fling with a woman that used to work for him and did not trust him.
The night of the assault both Rihanna and Chris Brown went to a pre-Grammy party. The woman that Brown had a fling with was also there and as a result Brown and Rihanna ended up arguing on their way home – “She starts going off, she throws the phone, ‘I hate you!’, whatever, whatever, she starts hitting me, we’re in a little Lamborghini, you know she’s fighting me.”
Then, annoyed with Rihanna’s violence, Brown punched her back, and he couldn’t stop.
10 Woody Allen Had An Affair With His Then-Girlfriend’s Adopted Daughter And Then Married Her
Remember how back in the 1990’s Woody Allen was in a relationship with Mia Farrow? Their relationship did not last however because it came to light that Allen was having an affair with Farrow’s 21-year-old adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn.
Allen and Previn got married in 1997 and Allen continued making his hugely popular films despite the above despicable act. Allen and Previn are still together and Allen takes all the credit for Previn’s good life despite the fact that it was Farrow and her then-husband Andre Previn who actually adopted Previn in the first place – “And so I’ve been able to really make her life better. I provided her with enormous opportunities, and she has sparked to them.”
9 Rihanna Hit A Fan On Purpose
It’s awful when celebrities lash out at fans with their words. But it’s even worse when they lash out at them with their fists. It happens all the time and always results in an uproar, especially if it is done by a female celebrity.
As you can imagine, Rihanna’s fans were shocked when the singer hit one of her fans during her concert in 2013. Rihanna left the stage and, still singing, walked into the crowd. Obviously, some fans were eager to touch their beloved celebrity and that’s exactly what one fan did. Rihanna responded by smacking the fan in the head with her microphone.
Later, when another fan called the incident an accident, Rihanna replied by saying that she did it on purpose – “Purpose! That b***h won’t let me go.”
8 Mel Gibson Threatened To Kill His Girlfriend
Once upon a time Mel Gibson was one of the most beloved actors and directors in Hollywood. But that all changed when the world found out just how awful Gibson is in real life.
Nowadays Gibson is well known for having terrorized his ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva. On one occasion, he berated Grigorieva’s choice of clothes, saying – “You look like a f***ing pig in heat and if you get r*ped by a pack of n***ers it will be your fault.”
On another occasion, Gibson threatened to kill her – “I’ll put you in a f***ing rose garden you c**t!”
7 Will Ferrell Taunts His Fans When They Ask For His Autograph
Most fans are crazy about their beloved celebrities. They want to see them, touch them and most importantly, get their autograph. And while some celebrities are incredibly thoughtful and considerate and always give their fans their time, others are extremely stingy when it comes to taking photographs with their fans or signing autographs.
Unfortunately, the actor and comedian Will Ferrell falls into the latter category. He hates giving out his autograph and he makes sure his fans know that. According to an anonymous source, Ferrell “mocks people, taunts and embarrasses them when they ask for autographs.”
6 Shia LaBeouf Made A Fan Cry And Threatened To Kill Her Boyfriend
Apparently, the actor Shia LaBeouf is not exactly nice to his fans – he sometimes reduces them to tears. A few years ago, LaBeouf was approached by a female fan at a restaurant. The fan asked LaBeouf for an autograph and he somehow made her cry in just a few minutes.
Witnesses say that the fan’s boyfriend then came over to see what all the fuss was about. LaBeouf and the boyfriend then got into a tussle before the actor was escorted out by the restaurant’s staff.
According to the restaurant’s patrons, LaBoeuf was out of control – “Shia went for this guy after he upset his girlfriend. It was shocking. He looked out of control.” Shia pursued him and was overheard saying, “I can get you killed.”
5 Ariana Grande Insulted A Pastry Shop Employee As Well As America In General
In 2015, a video of Ariana Grande eating a doughnut went viral. However, while the video seems innocent at first glance, on further inspection you realize that Grande is being extremely mean. In the video, you can see a shop employee carrying a tray of oversized donuts and you can hear Grande saying – “What the f**k is that? I hate Americans. I hate America.” That’s pretty harsh.
Later Grande apologized, but her apology couldn’t erase the vision of her cursing at an innocent employee and her country – “As an advocate for healthy eating, food is very important to me, and I sometimes get upset by how freely we as Americans eat and consume things without giving any thought to the consequences that it has on our health and society as a whole. That being said, let me once again apologize if I have offended anyone with my poor choice of words.”
4 Casey Affleck Harrassed Two Women He Was Working With
In 2010 two women that worked with the actor Casey Affleck on his film I’m Still Here filed sexual harassment charges against him. One of the women said that Affleck crawled into her bed while she was asleep while the other woman claimed that Affleck tried to pressurize her into staying in his hotel room and grabbed her arm violently when she refused to do so.
In addition, Affleck is also said to have belittled the two women as well as asked one of his staff members to expose himself to one of the women. However, despite Affleck’s despicable behavior and the drama it has caused, he still went on to win an Oscar for best actor. But not everyone in Hollywood is keeping quiet - the actress Constance Wu for example openly criticized Affleck's behavior.
3 Tom Cruise Criticized Brooke Shields For Taking Medication For Depression
You have to admit that the actor Tom Cruise is pretty nice to his fans and colleagues, even if he is a little weird (take his Scientology beliefs, for example). So it came as a shock when he criticized the actress Brooke Shields for using anti-depressants for her post-partum depression.
According to Cruise, Shields should just use vitamins – “These drugs are dangerous. I have actually helped people come off. When you talk about postpartum, you can take people today, women, and what you do is you use vitamins. There is a hormonal thing that is going on, scientifically you can prove that. But when you talk about emotional, chemical imbalances in people, there is no science behind that. You can use vitamins to help a woman through these things.”
That’s pretty nasty, even if Cruise obviously wanted to help. But it is obvious that he has never experienced depression.
2 O. J. Simpson Physically Assaulted His Wife (And Possibly Murdered Her)
Whether O. J. Simpson is guilty of a double murder is still up for debate and everyone has their own opinion on the case. Simpson himself has said that he is conflict-averse and doesn’t like to fight. However, in the past, he beat up his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, numerous times, so even if he is not guilty of the murders he is still a despicable human being.
For example, in 1989, the police arrived at Simpson’s house to find his wife beaten and scratched, hiding in the bushes. According to one policeman, she screamed – “He’s going to kill me, he’s going to kill me.” The policeman also said – “She kept saying: 'You never do anything about him. You talk to him and then leave'.”
1 Justin Bieber Reprimanded His Fan For Giving Him Gifts
Sometimes celebrities forget that their fans are the ones who make them famous. Without fans, no celebrity would remain famous for an extended period of time. And yet when celebrities get world famous they forget to appreciate their fans. Even worse, they become mean to their fans.
Take the singer Justin Bieber for example. Last year he was on stage during his show in Atlanta when a fan tossed him a gift. Bieber stopped in the middle of his speech about the purpose of his Purpose tour and said – “Take this moment to listen. And try not to give me a hat or whatever you’re trying to throw onto the stage right now because I probably don’t want that s**t.”
