9 Horrible Things Celebrities Did That We Forgot

The average person can write a dissertation on why they hate the Kardashians (just like you do), but it's a little trickier to criticize the select few celebrities who are universally adored. After all, nobody loves to read anything bad about Steve Jobs and Beyoncé. Even though their fans would prefer not to hear it, celebrities are still people and occasionally they may be jerks. Here are a few well-known celebrities who have a history of deviant behavior.

1. Steve Jobs

While working on the game destined to become Atari’s Breakout, Steve Jobs was tasked with reducing the game to less than 80 Integrated Circuits so that it could be produced more cheaply.
He went to his friend Steve Wozniak for assistance, offering to split the money 50/50 if Wozniak could help. Four sleepless days later, the Woz had successfully shrunk it down to 30 ICs and when told the job had paid $700, accepted his $350 with pride.
Years later, the Woz literally was brought to tears when he discovered that Jobs had been given $5000 for the task, and had cheated Wozniak for his work; not because of the money, but because the trust and friendship were broken. “I had a job as an engineer at HP and Steve would have been welcome to all the money.”

Penelope Cruz, Martin Scorsese, Tilda Swinton, Harrison Ford, Natalie Portman, Adrien Brody, Wes Anderson, and Harvey Weistein are among the celebrities who expressed their support for Roman Polanski by signing a petition urging the release of the director after his 2009 arrest in Switzerland in relation to his outstanding 1978 U.S. arrest warrant.
He pleaded guilty to drugging and raping a 13-year-old girl and fled to France before sentencing.

What do these three guys have in common? They were all caught doing “the stroke”.

Baker abandoned his wife and children at the age of 31 to pursue acting, having emotionally snapped and attempted to assault his mother-in-law with gardening equipment.
9 years later, he would become the 4th actor to portray the title role in “Doctor Who”, eventually becoming the most iconic of all the classic Doctors, and one of the most beloved figures in the history of family television.

6. Aaron Eckhart

While researching his role in the 2010 drama Rabbit Hole, Aaron Eckhart attended support group meetings for parents who had recently lost children to better understand his character. He never told the grieving parents or the group leader that he was researching for a role.
He went in, listened to their stories and proceeded to pretend to have lost a child himself. “You really believe that you just lost a child. I don’t want to be rude to people who have lost a child, but yeah, you feel right there, you feel like your character.”

7. Elvis Presley

Elvis was insecure around women his own age, feeling he might not live up to his hype. He would often host sleep over parties with girls around 14 years old. He especially liked virgins as they were less likely to push him to be more physical, or judge his skills.

8. John Wayne

You may know him as the groundskeeper who helped inspire Rudy, or as one of the other 105 roles he’s had in various Movies and TV shows. But did you know that Charles S. Dutton has also served prison sentences for manslaughter, illegal possession of a firearm and acting as the ringleader of a prison riot?! Yeah. Best not to piss him off.
