21 Iconic Movie Characters That Were Almost Played By Completely Different Actors

21 Iconic Movie Characters That Were Almost Played By Completely Different Actors -

 

Emily Blunt as Black Widow

1

Emily Blunt was almost cast as Black Widow in Iron Man 2 but she turned down the role because of a scheduling conflict while working on Gulliver’s Travels.

 

Ryan Gosling as Doctor Strange

2

Before Benedict Cumberbatch starred as Doctor Strange in the movie, Marvel wanted Ryan Gosling so much that they commissioned some concept art of Gosling as Doctor Strange.

 

Jason Momoa as Drax

3

Jason Momoa who is now known for his role as a DC superhero, Aquaman, rejected the role of Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy because he said he had done a lot of roles where he didn’t say much and appeared with his shirt off. There was even some concept art done of him as Drax.

 

Will Smith as Neo

4

Will Smith passed on the role of Neo in The Matrix because he couldn’t get on board with the idea when it was pitched to him. He admitted that he would’ve messed the movie up since he had a more animated approach than Keanu Reeves did.

 

Gwyneth Paltrow as Rose DeWitt Bukater

5

Gwyneth Paltrow was one of the last 2 contenders for the lead female protagonist in Titanic, but she turned the offer down. She was hesitant to talk about it because her mother would not have been pleased to learn she was turning down offers and would deem it “unladylike”.

 

Jack Nicholson as Michael Corleone

6

Jack Nicholson who was known for his portrayal of The Joker in Batman (1989) was considered for the part of Michael Corleone in The Godfather. But ultimately, it was Al Pacino who made the character come to life.

 

Hugh Jackman as James Bond

7

Fearing he would be typecast as an action star if he took on both Wolverine and James Bond roles, Hugh Jackman said no when his agent called him up about acting in Casino Royale.

 

Christina Applegate as Elle Woods

8

After 10 years of playing Kelly Bundy in Married With Children, Christina Applegate rejected the role of Elle Woods for fear of being typecast as a dumb blonde. She said sarcastically that she couldn’t possibly regret her decision after Reese Witherspoon became more successful than her from starring in Legally Blonde.

 

Sean Connery as Gandalf

9

The original James Bond said no when Peter Jackson offered him the part of Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings because he claimed he didn’t understand the script.

 

John Travolta as Forrest Gump

10

John Travolta was the first choice for Forrest Gump, but he had to turn down the offer. While Tom Hanks did a marvelous job as the lead character, Travolta starred in Pulp Fiction which is also one of the greatest movies of all time.

 

Eddie Redmayne as Peter Quill aka Star-Lord

11

Eddie Redmayne was a serious candidate for the role of Star-Lord and was confirmed among those reading for it. However, in the end, Chris Pratt who was known for his role in Parks and Recreation became the Star-Lord we know today.

 

Michelle Pfeiffer as Clarice Starling

12

Michelle Pfeiffer was one of the first choices to play the FBI agent who had that famous conversation with Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs.

 

Christopher Walken as Han Solo

13

George Lucas disliked the idea of reusing actors from his previous films. That’s why he initially didn’t want Harrison Ford who had appeared in his film American Graffiti as Han Solo in Star Wars. He had Christopher Walken in mind but Ford eventually landed the job.

 

Liam Hemsworth as Thor

14

Liam Hemsworth, the brother of Chris Hemsworth who played Thor on the big screen, was also considered to play the character. In the end, the older Hemsworth won the role.

 

Jim Carrey as Edward Scissorhands

15

The director of Edward Scissorhands, Tim Burton, considered Jim Carrey to play the titular character. Carrey’s movie antics would’ve made Edward very different than how Johnny Depp interpreted the role.

 

Gal Gadot as Nebula

16

Gal Gadot almost became Marvel’s Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy. The DC’s Wonder Woman said she would’ve had to shave off her hair and turn her head blue for the role which is ultimately what Karen Gillan did for it.

 

Bruce Willis as Sam Wheat

17

Bruce Willis passed on the chance to engage in some sensuous pottery-making with then-wife Demi Moore in the movie Ghost. He said no to the role and it wound up going to Patrick Swayze.

 

Reese Witherspoon as Cher Horowitz

18

While the director wanted Alicia Silverstone to play Cher Horowitz in Clueless from the beginning, the studio held auditions with other actresses including Reese Witherspoon who would star in Legally Blonde just a few years later.

 

Matt Damon as Jake Sully

19

Matt Damon had to give up the role of Jake Sully in Avatar due to a scheduling issue as he was just finishing The Bourne Ultimatum.

 

Jake Gyllenhaal as Peter Parker aka Spider-Man

20

Fearing a delay in Spider-Man 2 (2004), Sony reached out to Jake Gyllenhaal to replace Tobey Maguire. However, in the end, Maguire reprised the role while Gyllenhaal made a splash with his part in Brokeback Mountain. In an odd turn of events, the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home would actually show Gyllenhaal as the villain, Mysterio!

 

Olivia Wilde as Gamora

21

The part of the “most dangerous woman in the galaxy” was offered to Olivia Wilde. However, she did not accept it for undisclosed reasons.

DENNIS RODMAN ACCUSED OF CLOTHING HEIST ... Captured On Video

The owners of an upscale yoga studio are accusing Dennis Rodman of participating in a brazen daytime clothing heist ... and the whole bizarre thing was captured on video.

Here's the deal ... the NBA Hall of Famer entered VIBES Hot Yoga in Newport Beach around 12:45 PM on Tuesday with 3 companions -- 2 women and 1 man.

Almost immediately after they arrived, things got weird -- the owner tells us Dennis began distracting employees while the woman in a long-sleeved green shirt began stuffing clothing into her purse.

At one point, the woman hides behind Rodman while she tucks a shirt away.

Then, things get weirder ...

Rodman's male companion grabs a large $2,500 crystal art piece from the front desk and tries to place it on a steel dolly, insisting he wants to buy it.

But, the guy drops the crystal -- which shatters all over the floor -- and while the staff is distracted, the woman in the green-sleeves grabs another clothing item and again stuffs it into her purse.

Eventually, the entire crew leaves the store with the shattered crystal piece on the dolly. The owner tells us everyone in the group refused to pay. Dennis actually blamed the staff for the broken crystal.

The owner tells us ... the gang left the store with more than $500 in stolen clothing, plus the broken crystal -- so they went to police and filed a theft report.

The owner also says the employees working that day say everyone in Rodman's group reeked of alcohol.

VIBES is a popular spot for the rich and famous in Newport Beach.

We reached out to the Newport Beach PD -- but they're not commenting.

We also spoke with Rodman's attorney who told us, "We would decline comment. It's premature."

By the way, Rodman is still on probation stemming from a Jan. 2018 drunk driving incident-- so, this could become a VERY big deal for the 57-year-old.

10 Celebrities Whose 15 Minutes Of Fame Was Cut 5 Minutes Short

10 Celebrities Whose 15 Minutes Of Fame Was Cut 5 Minutes Short -

 

 

Thousands of people dream of becoming famous. However, those who actually become famous quickly realize that staying popular is every bit as hard as becoming popular. So, even if you become really successful, it doesn’t mean your career will prosper in the future. And unfortunately, the examples of some stars only prove this to be true.

1. Neve Campbell

Neve Campbell became famous after she played the main role in Scream, an iconic horror movie of the ’90s. This was the biggest role for the young actress for several years to come: Neve portrayed the main character in all 3 parts of the franchise. However, after the end of the shooting process of the last installment in 2000, her career was in a slump. She never got any big roles in any popular movies. Neve appeared on the big screen only in 2011 when she portrayed Sidney Prescot yet again: the franchise’s creators decided to release another part of Scream. Maybe the actress just got into this character a little too deeply.

2. Vanilla Ice

Vanilla Ice became the first rap singer whose single was at the top of the music chart. His song, Ice Ice Baby became iconic right away and the sales of his album were extremely impressive. But despite his incredible popularity, his stage image quickly became boring for the artist himself. As a result, he terminated the contract with his label and became an independent singer. Today, Vanilla Ice still sings and also stars in movies as an actor and works as a music producer. Of course, he is not as famous as he once was but the ability to decide what he wants to look like and what songs he wants to sing makes him quite happy.

3. PSY

In 2012, the video for Gangnam Style became the most watched video in YouTube history. After the video was released, the entire world talked about the South Korean musician, PSY. In European countries, the song was at the top of the music charts for months even though it was in Korean. While he was still popular, PSY performed numerous concerts all around the world. Today, 7 years later, he still goes on tours, but there have been no similar big hits in his career. PSY himself called Gangnam Style one of the biggest achievements of his life.

4. Robert Englund

Robert Englund is also a man of one role. Freddy Kruger became his biggest achievement and the role he appeared as more often than any other. At the end of the ’80s, he was the most popular character and he portrayed Freddy from 1984 to 2003. On the one hand, this role made Englund incredibly popular but on the other, it didn’t let him demonstrate his actual acting abilities because the complicated makeup covered his real face. To this day, few people can actually recognize him for the same reason.

5. Rick Moranis

In the ’80s, Rick Moranis was one of the most popular comedic actors in the US and Canada. The movies he appeared in became popular right away: he played the main roles in Ghost BustersHoney, I Shrunk the Kids, and other famous family comedies of the time. There was no danger to his career but at the beginning of the ’90s, his wife died of cancer. After that, the actor made the decision to leave the world of acting to raise his children.

6. Crazy Town

The Crazy Town band was formed in 1995 and didn’t seem promising until they released the single called Butterfly in 1999. The song appeared at the top of world music charts and 1.5 million copies of the album were sold. However, all the following works of the band were way less successful — the singles never even appeared on any charts. The members of the band said that it was because of the pressure from labels. At the beginning of the 2000s, they took a big break and their new album was released only in 2015. Even though Crazy Town still exists as a band, they haven’t had any other outstanding songs.

7. Hayden Christensen

Hayden Christensen has been doing movies since he was a child but his most famous role up until now is Anakin Skywalker. Christensen portrayed this character in 2 parts of the Star Wars franchise. There were different opinions about his work as the actor was nominated for both a Golden Globe and a Saturn Award as well as a Golden Raspberry for the worst role. Today Hayden Christensen rarely appears in movies and when he does, it’s usually in supporting roles.

8. Bomfunk MC’s

Bomfunk MC’s was formed by 2 DJs in 1998 and in 2000, they released Freestyler. Up until today, this is probably the only song by this band that almost every person who lived in the 2000s must have heard. The musician received a few awards for the song but all of their next albums were less successful. The members of the band changed several times, and the musicians took breaks and did their own solo projects. But in 2019, they released a new Freestyler video to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the song and said that they were working on a new release.

9. Shelley Duvall

Shelley Duvall was a very promising actress: she received a Cannes Film Festival Award for her main role in 3 Women. After that, she had very successful parts in The ShiningAnnie Hall and other movies. However, in the ’90s, Duvall started taking on a lot of supporting roles and in 2002 she stopped her movie career altogether. In 2016 she appeared on the show, Dr. Phil and admitted that she had a psychological disorder.

10. Rupert Grint

The actors who played the main roles in Harry Potter were the highest paid actors before they were teenagers. They appeared not only in movies and TV shows but also on the covers of notebooks, backpacks, and other products. The last episode of the franchise was released in 2011, and at that moment, Rupert Grint was a very popular actor. However, he had a series of roles in really bad movies and the industry’s interest in him disappeared. He continues to do movies and TV shows but apparently, it’s hard to do something as big as Harry Potter.

Not only is an absence of talent a good way to ruin a successful career, but unfortunate circumstances, health issues, and thousands of other unexpected things can have the same effect. Have you ever met people who were really promising at what they did but for some reason something went wrong?

10 CELEBRITIES YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE REALIZED ARE SCIENTOLOGISTS

10 CELEBRITIES YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE REALIZED ARE SCIENTOLOGISTS -

The Church of Scientology has become one of the most ridiculed religions since its launch in 1952. The religion was founded by American author L. Ron Hubbard. Scientologists are known to believe that the Earth is inhabited by alien “thetans,” which walk our world disguised as humans, and that the “auditing” process will clear the body of these thetans and the “mental implants” they impose on us all. It is also stated that humans evolved from clams.[1]

That all sounds pretty nuts, right? Despite the ongoing criticism of Scientology, these following celebrities are all dedicated followers and have spoken out about their true devotion for the church.

10 John Travolta

Hollywood star John Travolta has been a follower of the Church of Scientology since 1975 and is one of their most high-profile members. Alongside his wife, Kelly Preston, he credits the church for standing beside them when they lost their son after he suffered a seizure at age 16.

Travolta said, “The church never left our sides for two years. I don’t know if I would have made it through without their support.” He added, “The truth is, I didn’t know if I was going to make it. Life was no longer interesting to me, so it took a lot to get me better.”

Former Scientology spokesperson Mike Rinder has alleged in an interview that the church has a lot more control over the lives of Travolta and his family than the public knows about. He revealed, “Kelly is a much more dedicated Scientologist than John. Scientology dictates every choice in life and informs every decision a Scientologist makes.”[2]

9 Kirstie Alley

Kirstie Alley has been a devoted follower of Scientology since 1979. She was previously raised as a Methodist. Alley personally admitted to joining the church when she was struggling with cocaine addiction. She went through the Scientology-affiliated drug treatment program known as Narconon and has since ended her dependency.

Following the Las Vegas Strip shooting in 2017, she wrote a series of tweets blaming the actions of the shooter, Stephen Paddock, on psychiatric medications—an assumption, as her statements came before the coroner’s report. The Church of Scientology claims drugs damage a person’s physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. Instead, they recommend one of their international Narconon drug rehabilitation centers.

Alley has defended the church against those who condemn its practices, claiming that most of the criticisms are not true. In an interview, she stated, “I think all religions sound bizarre to people who are not the practitioners of them. [ . . . ] To me [Scientology] is so normal, and probably 90 percent of the crazy stuff I hear isn’t true.”[3]

8 Beck

Grammy award-winning singer Beck was born into the Church of Scientology. He first acknowledged his affiliation with Scientology in 2005, when he stated, “It’s just something that I’ve been around. People in my family do it. I’ve read books, and I’ve learned about it.” His estranged wife is also a second-generation Scientologist.

Speaking in an interview about Scientology, Beck explained, “It’s definitely something that’s helped me. [ . . . ] I think the good done speaks for itself.” When asked about criticisms toward the church, he replied, “There’s that kind of intolerance which to me is kind of insidious, you know; you can make a judgment about something you don’t about. [ . . . ] They have one of the highest [drug treatment] success rates [ . . . ] and programs for criminals in prisons—it’s pretty staggering actually.”[4]

Beck is known as a still-active member of the church. However, recent interviewers have since been forbidden to ask him questions regarding his religion.

7 Issac Hayes

Singer Issac Hayes won an Academy Award for Best Original Song for the “Theme from Shaft,” but most of his fans know him as the voice of Chef in the popular comedy South Park. After nine years in the role, Hayes quit the show when an episode mocked the Church of Scientology, of which he was a member.

Hayes said in a statement, “There is a place in this world for satire, but there is a time when satire ends, and intolerance and bigotry towards religious beliefs of others begins. As a civil rights activist, I cannot support a show that disrespects those beliefs and practices.”

South Park co-creator Matt Stone fired back, “This has nothing to do with intolerance and bigotry and everything to do with the fact that Isaac Hayes is a Scientologist and that we recently featured Scientology in an episode of South Park. In 10 years and more than 150 episodes, Isaac never had a problem with the show making fun of Christians, Muslims, Mormons and Jews. He got a sudden case of religious sensitivity when it was his religion featured on the show.”[5]

6 Nancy Cartwright

Voice actress Nancy Cartwright—best known for bringing to life Bart Simpson on The Simpsons—is a devoted Scientologist and has been since 1991. In 2007, she was awarded Scientology’s Patron Laureate Award for donating $10 million to the church—twice her annual salary. Following the release of the scathing documentary Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief in 2015, Cartwright went public with her support for the church.

She said, “It was such a lie. That book and that movie, I don’t even know what to tell you. It’s called prejudice. It’s like, very irresponsible reporting. You know, anybody wants to find out about it you should find out about it for yourself. It’s called integrity. And, look at me. Look at who I am, seriously. Look what it is that I am doing. You can’t knock me for what it is that I’m doing. I am helping.” She added, “Shame on them, anyway. And the truth is, find out for yourself.”[6]

5 Elisabeth Moss

The Handmaid’s Tale actress Elisabeth Moss grew up in the Church of Scientology and has been very guarded about her religion. One fan managed to tempt Moss into a rare debate after commenting on her social media post, “Both Gilead [fictional location in The Handmaid’s Tale] and Scientology both believe that all outside sources (aka news) are wrong or evil. Does it make you think twice about Scientology?” Moss wrote back, “That’s actually not true at all about Scientology. Religious freedom and tolerance and understanding the truth and equal rights for every race, religion and creed are extremely important to me.”

In 2017, when Moss received her Emmy for Best Actress, she startled members of the audience when she dropped a lot of F-bombs throughout her acceptance speech. According to former Scientologist, Tiziano Lugli, this is a technique used by Scientologists to appeal to others. He explained, “Scientologists are urged to communicate with ‘average people,’ and to do so effectively you have to ‘go down the tone scale.’ So they all use ‘f—, f—, f—‘ every time they talk. It’s fascinating.”[7]

4 Juliette Lewis

Oscar-nominated actress turned rock star Juliette Lewis has been a devoted Scientologist for many years, having grown up in a family steeped in the organization. Her father, actor Geoffrey Lewis, was also a Scientologist. Due to her rebellious nature, it was believed that the actress would leave the church once she reached adulthood. However, she has remained a dedicated member.

In 2017, she tweeted her support for fellow Scientologist and actor Danny Masterson when he was accused of rape. She wrote, “Love you and your beautiful family. It will get better. We know this.”

Defending against criticism of the church, Lewis explained that there can be “trouble” in any religion. She said, “Any religion, you can find trouble in. At the end of the day, I’m into protecting my freedom of choice, freedom of voice, freedom of religion, freedom of expression. And so as long as nothing is inhibiting that . . . But there are misconceptions that are annoying.”[8]

3 Michael Pena

Michael Pena is best known for his roles in Ant-Man and the Wasp and Narcos: Mexico. He believes his success as an actor is thanks to programs he became involved in as a Scientologist. Pena joined the church in 2000, when he entered the detox program “Purification Rundown” for his alcoholism. He revealed, “For me, it isn’t a religion like a belief; it’s practical things you do.”

Pena then joined another program called “Study Tech,” which encouraged him to become a better reader. He said, “[Study Tech] made me a better actor because I felt like it helped my understanding of scripts.” Developed by founder Ron L. Hubbard, Study Tech is aimed at raising literacy among the church.

Speaking about criticism of the church, he explained, “I don’t read that stuff. OK, imagine we’re friends, you and me. Buddies. And there’s a tabloid story about you. There’s no way I’m going to read some tabloid story about you. Especially when I know it’s misinformed.”[9]

2 Laura Prepon

Orange Is The New Black star Lauren Prepon strongly believes that Scientology has rid her of life stresses and relaxes her. She previously revealed that she has worked through many of its programs, including “Personal Values and Integrity” and “Purification Rundown.”

Prepon has also been through the process of auditing within the church, which has been heavily criticized by former members, who believe their traumatic pasts were used against them for reasons of control. The process allows the individual to evaluate tough times that have happened in their life and get rid of any negativity from the past that might be holding them back. Prepon said, “The auditing has stripped away all of this charge, false ideas, decisions and mis-emotions that were affecting me.”

She added, “I spotted this decision I made a long time ago that was affecting me to this day. [ . . . ] At the time of the incident, you make a postulate as a ‘pro-survival’ decision, you know? Then to spot it years and years later, after peeling away these layers and then—boom, there it is—it’s mind-blowing! To think of it just hiding there in my bank, affecting me.”[10]

1 Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise is known as one of the most recognizable members of the Church of Scientology and also the most highly criticized. Cruise himself claims that the “Study Tech” program helped him overcome dyslexia, and he campaigned for Scientology to be recognized as a religion in Europe. In 2004, he famously made a controversial statement, “I think psychiatry should be outlawed.” He also criticized actress Brooke Shields for using antidepressants when she was struggling with postpartum depression.

Former church member Leah Remini said, “He is second to David Miscavige—the saviour of the free world.” Another former member, Bree Mood, said, “[Cruise] was a god in the lower ranks. [ . . . ] Every time a Tom Cruise movie came out they’d buy all his tickets. It could be 500, 1,000, up to 2,500 people. I’m not kidding.”[11]

His ex-wife, actress Nicole Kidman, is believed to have left the church following the end of their marriage. However, their adopted daughter Isabella has since become a member and has been through the auditing process during an internship at Scientology London. It is also strongly believed that Cruise’s religion caused the breakdown of his most recent marriage to actress Katie Holmes.

11 Super Secure Celebrities You Wouldn’t Want to Ask for an Autograph

11 Super Secure Celebrities You Wouldn’t Want to Ask for an Autograph -

 

We often have the impression that the life of celebrities is perfect, but in fact, they also have serious problems. Famous people can rarely afford to spend a day alone and are always accompanied by bodyguards. And while some celebrities need only one bodyguard, there are others who want to be surrounded by a team of them. Sometimes they go too far when it comes to their security.

1. Beyoncé and Jay-Z

This famous married couple has been attacked by their fans multiple times. During their summer tour, On the Run, a drunk fan got on the stage and scared the celebrities a lot, but fortunately, their bodyguards managed to capture the man quickly. It was after this incident that their security measures were tightened.

The couple surrounded themselves with 500 bodyguards. They were tasked with protecting Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and their daughter 24/7, and about 300 people were in the crowd during their shows preventing dangerous accidents. And about 50 people usually watch the stage. In their regular life, they are protected by 3 bodyguards, including Julius DeBoer who is one of the most famous bodyguards in the world.

2. Tom Cruise

“Tom Cruise” is one of the most searched people on Google. Because he knows how popular he is, the Hollywood actor surrounds himself with the best bodyguards. For example time, Tom Cruise, his wife, and his daughter were protected by the charismatic Sean Ringgold, who later became an actor.

Another of his popular bodyguards is Mark “Billy” Billingham. He is a former sniper and SWAT officer, and he protects the actor together with his team.

3. Angelina Jolie

The famous mother of 6 has 3 bodyguards. For a long time, the children were protected by Mark “Billy” Billingham who later became Tom Cruise’s bodyguard. After many long years of working with the actress and her children, he and Jolie became so close that he even became her confidant. He supported Jolie a lot during her divorce with Brad Pitt. The cost of Jolie’s security is more than $2 million annually.

4. Rihanna

During official events, Rihanna always has 5 bodyguards who wear elegant suits. On regular days, she prefers to have 2 guards with her. It’s known that she has an informal and friendly relationship with her bodyguards. Sometimes, they carry her on their backs when she is tired or when it’s snowing. And they also put her on their backs during parties and concerts.

5. Kendrick Lamar

The famous rap singer rarely appears on magazine covers and he generally tries not to be seen in public. But in the few photos that you can find online, you will see the singer with 3 big men who are protecting him. Last summer, during a walk in Australia, paparazzi took a picture of Lamar surrounded by his bodyguards. Now we know that he has nothing to be afraid of when there’s a bodyguard like thisnear him.

6. Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga has millions of fans, and some of them are really obsessed with her. So, when the singer appears in any public place, she is always surrounded by 4 tall men wearing black suits.

They often stop the fans who rush toward the celebrity to try to get an autograph. However, aside from being effective, the singer also values the image of her bodyguards. Pete van der Veen is one of her former bodyguards who worked for her for many years. He is a bodybuilder and in 2005, he won a beauty contest.

7. David and Victoria Beckham

This famous married couple is extremely popular, which is why they always have to be surrounded by bodyguards. In order to pick up his children from school, David has to drive a bulletproof Rolls-Royce with 2 cars full of guards. The soccer player himself said that he dreams of walking down the street with his family, without other people around, but he realizes that his family’s safety comes first.

8. Britney Spears

Bodyguards protect the singer from over enthusiastic fans and photographers 24/7. In 2014, Spears was so scared that she would be stalked by her ex-boyfriend that she tightened her security. She even hired 2 more people to be on guard every day.

She asked them to keep an eye on the guy since he was not allowed to be in the same town as her. Spears is known for having a difficult demeanor, so many people who’ve worked for her have complained about how difficult it was that they had to deal with her strange decisions and help solve all her problems.

9. Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer is always surrounded by security. When she goes shopping, she is always accompaniedby her bodyguard who never takes his eyes off her. When she is outside, she is always with 3 male bodyguards who protect her from annoying photographers and fans.

10. Drake

The multiple bodyguards of the famous musician have a controversial reputation. They are readyto do anything when it comes to the rapper’s safety. They even fight with fans and photographers. And since December 2018, Drake has tightened the security because of a conflict with Kanye West who lives nearby. Additionally, the security team put a huge bulletproof car near his gate.

11. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

After a robbery, the famous couple has tightened their security. Now, Kim walks and travels together with her 3 bodyguards. West, who used to walk alone or only with one bodyguard, is now also surrounded by big men. Now, they travel in a bulletproof car and their security costs them around $1.5 million annually.


10 Musicians Who Got Caught For Oddball Crimes By 'Johnny Law'

10 Musicians Who Got Caught For Oddball Crimes By 'Johnny Law' -

 

 

Musicians are just as corruptible as the rest of us. It is commonplace now to see your favorite musicians in trouble with authorities for drug charges or drunken stupors. Drug- and alcohol-related arrests have become something of a staple of the music industry.

However, in rare circumstances, musicians get into trouble for the unlikeliest of transgressions. These strange criminal blunders are undoubtedly rare among musicians, but they are so puzzling and hilarious that they deserve a light shining on them.

 

10 Paul McCartney

In 1960, former Beatle Paul McCartney was arrested in Hamburg, Germany, for attempted arson. McCartney and then–Beatles’ drummer Pete Best pinned a condom to the wall of the Bambi Kino, their accommodations while playing in Hamburg, and set the condom on fire.

After living in filthy conditions during the early string of shows, Paul’s arson was a boyish act of protest against the Bambi Kino owner Bruno Koschmider. Renowned for beating customers with a chair leg, Koschmider had put up the Beatles in the back of his porno cinema while they tirelessly played for him in his run-down strip club known as the Indra.

As George Harrison, then 17, was already being deported from Germany for flouting Hamburg’s curfew laws for minors, the Beatles were ready to go home—but not before McCartney and Best set the condom alight.

Koschmider subsequently rang the police, who arrested and detained Best and McCartney before deporting them.[1]

9 Barry White

Before he had a music career and was nicknamed the “Walrus of Love,” Barry White was something of a criminal in his teens (by his own admission). However, White was hardly a master criminal as evinced by his arrest in 1960 for the theft of car tires which led to subsequent jail time.

As a teenager, White often got into trouble with his brother, Darryl. Barry stated that they were a “two-man gang, respected and feared [who] ran and ruled the streets of our neighborhood.” However, the theft of $30,000 worth of Cadillac tires landed him in prison.

Barry White served four months in prison in 1960. While he was incarcerated, the seeds of the Walrus of Love were sown because White vowed to do away with his minor criminal past and focus on music.[2]

 

8 D’arcy Wretzky

D’arcy Wretzky, former bassist for the Smashing Pumpkins, was arrested and eventually imprisoned in 2011 due to her horses escaping her home. Wretzky’s neighbors contacted the police after her horses were left to wander from her farm onto their land. Although she was notified of the offense in 2009, it took until 2011 before her antics led to prison time.

Michigan has an “animals running at large” law that Wretzky breached. However, the law is only a minor offense. It was Wretzky’s repeated absence from four consecutive court dates related to the incident that eventually landed her in jail.

Otherwise, Wretzky would have only had to pay a fine. Nevertheless, she was sentenced to six days imprisonment.[3]

7 Gary Numan

New wave singer and songwriter Gary Numan found himself on the wrong side of Indian police in 1981 when he was arrested on suspicion of smuggling and spying. As an air display pilot as well as a musician, Numan was flying with a friend over India. After the plane’s engine gave out, they were forced to land.

The pair sought help in a local Indian village but instead were arrested on suspicion of smuggling and spying. As the two men were wearing two watches each, the police thought they were smuggling. Worse still, the pair had cameras on them which gave the police grounds to believe that they were spying.

Little did Numan know, there was actually a Russian submarine base 32 kilometers (20 mi) from where they had landed. Therefore, the Indian police thought that they were taking photographs of that base.

Both Numan and his friend were arrested and detained for four days. Eventually, the pair contacted the Home Office, and they were duly released.[4]

6 Vanilla Ice

Rapper (sort of) Vanilla Ice got in trouble with authorities in 2004, albeit for something far less sinister than his arrest for burglary in 2015. In fact, it was animal control officials that landed Vanilla Ice in difficulty.

Vanilla Ice’s pet wallaroo, Bucky Buckaroo, and his pet goat, Pancho, decided one day to escape Vanilla Ice’s domicile in Florida. Pancho managed to headbutt open the latch of the gate of their enclosure, and the two went for a ramble in Florida.

The rebellious animals actually scratched one woman and kicked her car after she tried to feed them. Animal control officials eventually captured the two, and their days on the lam were cut short.

Animal control officials caught Vanilla Ice with an expired permit and duly fined him $220. Pancho and Bucky were eventually reunited with their owner.[5]

 

5 Peter Buck

REM’s guitarist Peter Buck was arrested for an air rage incident in 2001, but the story was far sillier than it sounds. After allegedly making the mistake of mixing a sleeping pill with alcohol, Buck went on a drunken rampage, much to the chagrin of his fellow passengers.

After being refused any more alcohol, Buck in his already-drunk, loutish state overturned a flight attendant’s trolley and demanded to leave the airplane mid-flight. He had to be pulled away from an exit door. As a pilot attempted to calm the situation, Buck responded that “he was just a f—king pilot and [Buck] was REM.” Even stranger, Buck sprayed flight attendants with yogurt and tried to steal cutlery from the plane.

The guitarist was later cleared of all charges, and he did help to clean up the yogurt mess while on the plane.[6]

4 Bob Dylan

New Jersey police detained poor old Bob Dylan in 2009 over a simple case of mistaken identity. The icon of folk music was set to headline a concert alongside Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp. But it nearly didn’t happen thanks to New Jersey police officer Kristie Buble, who believed that Dylan was a mad pensioner who had escaped from a hospital.

Dylan went for a stroll around the Long Branch area on his own in the pouring rain when a concerned citizen rang the police about the suspicious-looking character. When Buble arrived to determine what was going on, Dylan told her that he was indeed Bob Dylan. But for the police officer, that just confirmed her suspicions of a madman on the loose.

Apparently forgetting that people age, Buble expected Dylan to look like her memories of him from his younger years. As a result, Buble believed that the man in front of her was a rambling lunatic and not Bob Dylan.[7]

Detained by the police, the musician was taken to his nearby tour bus to confirm his identity. When they reached Dylan’s manager, he showed Dylan’s identification to the now-embarrassed police officer. In her defense, it was a little strange that Dylan was wandering around in the rain, but he’s never been one for conventional behavior.

3 Mick Jagger, Bill Wyman, And Brian Jones
The Rolling Stones

Although two of the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, were infamously arrested and charged with drug offenses in 1967, it was public urination that saw three of the Rolling Stones—Bill Wyman, Mick Jagger, and Brian Jones—arrested in 1965.

After being refused access to a petrol station lavatory in London, three of the Rolling Stones took it upon themselves to relieve their full bladders by urinating on the petrol station itself. The unsympathetic station owner had denied Bill Wyman the key initially. However, Jagger and Jones also took offense at this.

All three began chanting “we’ll p—s anywhere, man” to the station owner and a nearby mechanic who had witnessed the scene and was merely attempting to move them on. When the owner wouldn’t concede, Jagger, Wyman, and Jones urinated on the wall of the petrol station while still chanting.

After the trio was arrested, they were charged with public indecency and subsequently fined £5 each.[8]

2 Frank Zappa

In the early years of Frank Zappa’s career, he was not too discerning about where his much-needed money came from. This became painfully apparent in 1962 when Zappa was duped into making porn for an undercover San Bernardino police detective in California.

After creating several scores for low-budget films, Zappa was offered work by a supposed used car salesman to produce a porn film. As the “used car salesman” knew of Zappa’s amateur film credentials, he turned to Zappa for help.

Though Zappa refused to outright make a porn film for the man, Zappa did offer to record audio-only porn with his friend Lorraine Belcher in a studio owned by Zappa. The recording was essentially a mock-up of a couple having sex.

After Zappa made the recording, the “salesman” refused to pay him. Instead, the police raided the studio and seized the tapes. Of course, the “used car salesman” was simply an undercover detective hoping to entrap an unwitting “criminal.”

Zappa was charged with conspiracy to make pornography and given a 10-day prison sentence. This made Zappa a lifelong cynic toward authority.[9]

1 Ozzy Osbourne

Yet more public urination from a beloved rock star. Throughout his lengthy career, Ozzy Osbourne has been a staple of the typical rock and roll antics that define the genre’s more reckless practitioners.

Ozzy is the epitome of the drunken, drug-induced wild behavior of rock stars. Some of his most outrageous behavior included biting the head off a bat and snorting a line of ants. But in 1982, a drunken Ozzy was arrested for urinating on a historic landmark.

In a drunken stupor, Ozzy stumbled around San Antonio, Texas, looking for a place to relieve himself. Unfortunately, he chose the city’s Cenotaph dedicated to the fallen soldiers in the Battle of the Alamo.

To make this story even stranger, Ozzy was wearing the clothes of his wife, Sharon, the whole time because she had denied him access to his own so that he could not go out and drink. Obviously, it didn’t work. The police arrested Ozzy for public intoxication. He was freed on $40 bond the same day.[10]


10 Indisputable Facts About the Sexual-Abuse Allegations Against Michael Jackson

10 Indisputable Facts About the Sexual-Abuse Allegations Against Michael Jackson

Key revelations and insights that viewers of the new HBO documentary Leaving Neverlandneed to know.

To help viewers contextualize the documentary’s presentation of what ultimately amounts to a narrow slice of a sprawling saga, here are 10 undeniable facts about the sexual-abuse allegations against Michael Jackson.

1. There is no dispute that, at age 34, Michael Jackson slept more than 30 nights in a row in the same bed with 13-year-old Jordie Chandler at the boy’s house with Chandler’s mother present. He also slept in the same bed with Jordie Chandler at Chandler’s father’s house. The parents were divorced.

2. So far, five boys Michael Jackson shared beds with have accused him of abuse: Jordie Chandler, Jason Francia, Gavin Arvizo, Wade Robson, and Jimmy Safechuck. Jackson had the same nickname for Chandler and Arvizo: “Rubba.” He called Robson “Little One” and Safechuck “Applehead.”

3. Jackson paid $25 million to settle the Chandlers’ lawsuit, with $18 million going to Jordie, $2.5 million to each of the parents, and the rest to lawyers. Jackson said he paid that sum to avoid something “long and drawn out.” Francia also received $2.4 million from Jackson.

4. Michael Jackson suffered from the skin discoloration disease vitiligo. Jordie Chandler drew a picture of the markings on the underside of Jackson’s penis. His drawings were sealed in an envelope. A few months later, investigators photographed Jackson’s genitalia. The photographs matched Chandler’s drawings.

5. The hallway leading to Jackson’s bedroom was a serious security zone covered by video and wired for sound so that the steps of anyone approaching would make ding-dong sounds.

6. Jackson had an extensive collection of adult erotic material he kept in a suitcase next to his bed, including S&M bondage photos and a study of naked boys. Forensic experts with experience in the Secret Service found the fingerprints of boys alongside Jackson’s on the same pages. Jackson also had bondage sculptures of women with ball gags in their mouths on his desk, in full view of the boys who slept there.

7. According to the Neverland staff interviewed by the Santa Barbara authorities, no one ever saw or knew of a woman spending the night with Michael Jackson, including his two spouses, Debbie Rowe or Lisa Marie Presley. Rowe, the mother of two of Jackson’s children, made it clear to the Santa Barbara authorities that she never had sex with Jackson.

8. The parents of boys Jackson shared beds with were courted assiduously and given myriad expensive gifts. Wade Robson’s mother testified in the 2005 trial that she funneled wages through Jackson’s company and was given a permanent resident visa. Jimmy Safechuck’s parents got a house. Jordie Chandler’s mother got a diamond bracelet.

9. Two of the fathers of those who have accused Jackson, Jordie Chandler and Wade Robson, committed suicide. Both were estranged from their sons at the time.

10. In a 2002 documentary, Living with Michael Jackson, Jackson told Martin Bashir there was nothing wrong with sharing his bed with boys.

13 Movie "Heroes" Who Were Actually The Villains

13 Movie "Heroes" Who Were Actually The Villains -

When it comes to investing ourselves into a film, we always want to root for the good guy; because there always is one. Which means, by necessity, that there’s a bad guy. But what if we’ve been rooting for the wrong guy?Sometimes, the guy that stands up claiming to be the hero, is the bad guy and is the cause of all the bad shit going down.Just think about it.

Newmarket

Leonard Shelby

Memento

Let’s be honest here; Leonard is not a good guy. His short term memory loss makes him an unreliable narrator. So, if you watch the film as presented for the first time, you feel sorry for the guy. All he wants is to find the man who killed his wife.Given that he doesn’t remember shit, we learn later, that he already found the guy and it was him. Maybe. He’s fuzzy on the details, but in any case, he’s not the hero of the piece.

Paramount

Grandpa Joe

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

When you have your own website detailing how much of a shitstick you are, there’s no doubt that you’re the bad guy. There’s any number of reasons, but the most prominent are that he has money to buy tobacco, while everyone else eats cabbage soup. But that’s not even paid for with his own money. For all intents and purposes, Grandpa Joe’s been lying in bed for 20 years, never lifting a finger. He’s got enough energy to criticize but not to give anyone a hand.And yet, once Charlie gets that golden ticket, looks who can suddenly dance and sing? Then, while he’s at the factory, he makes misogynistic comments about the girls and is also kinda racist.He’s not anybody’s sweet ol’ Grampa. He’s a tool.

4

Disney

Peter Pan

There are plenty of theories out there about his evil nature, but the most common ones are that he’s the reason why Captain Hook only has one hand. He started a fight with him over his hatred of grown ups, cut off his hand and fed it to the crocodile, thus making his own arch-enemy, with an arch-enemy of his own.Then there’s this passage from the novel: “The boys on the island vary, of course, in numbers….and when they seem to be growing up, which is against the rules, Peter thins them out; but at this time there were six of them, counting the twins as two.”So when the lost boys get too old, he thins them out? He fucking kills kids when they get older. And let’s not get him started on his kidnapping of Wendy, Michael and John. It’s kidnapping.

MGM

Glinda, The Good Witch

Wizard of Oz

We were all duped as kids. We thought that the Wicked Witch of the West was the worst possible character in film, when all she was, was a girl who wanted her shoes back. It’s the good witch, Glinda, who causes all the trouble.When the house lands on the Wicked Witch of the East, Glinda denies the West’s request for the ruby slippers, and gives them to Dorothy. Then she manipulates the events behind the scenes to get Dorothy to Oz, meet the rest of the crew, expose the Wizard, then finally, take down the Wicked Witch.And she didn’t even need to get any dust on her sparkly, pink dress.

Titanic

Despite what James Cameron says, there was a way for Jack and Rose to fit on that door. But she didn’t even let him try. Because she’s a selfish and spoiled person.There’s a lot to be said about how she was treated by her mom and Cal, and the role of women in society at the time, and I’m certainly not defending the misogyny of the era, but she’s a liar. She promised to marry Cal to ensure the financial future of her family, then cheats on her fiancee. Not cool.But then it’s old Rose who really makes her character unsympathetic. She hoards a $250 Million necklace and never shares it with her family, despite the fact that it was Cal that gave it to her. She could have ensured her family lived debt free, or donated it to a museum, or even gave it to the salvage crew for future expedition funding, but instead, threw it away.

Paramount

Ferris Bueller

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

While he might seem like the hero to everyone in the school, he’s a truant little bully. He gets his principal in trouble (who’s literal job is to ensure that kids aren’t in class), is a shitty friend to Cameron and ruins his dad’s car, and I don’t think he’s all that nice to Sloane.Dude just needs to accept responsibility and be a grown up.

Paramount

Maverick

Top Gun

Frankly, Maverick isn’t a very good member of the US Navy. He doesn’t listen to authority, is a very unsafe pilot, and wrestles with his daddy issues. In reality, someone like him would have been court martialed and drummed out of the military a lot time ago, and probably charged with a few infractions.His attitude makes Iceman look like the sanest one in the bunch, and that’s scary.

20th Century fox

Daniel Hillard

Mrs. Doubtfire

Is this a heartwarming and funny family film or a dark movie about a deranged stalker? It’s hard to tell. We root for Daniel because he just wants to spend time with his kids, and reconcile with his wife. But there’s a good reason that the judge denied his requests. He’s unreliable, and there’s a mention of some sort of substance abuse problem.However wholesome his intentions, he breaks the law trying to sneakily see his kids, almost kills Stu and is a general d-bag to everyone else. He sort of gets what he deserves in the end, but at least he knows it and tries to make it better by being honest and acting like a grown-up.

10

Warner Bros.

V

V for Vendetta

Sure, his motivation is to get revenge on what was done to him and free the masses from the Fascist government, but he’s also a terrorist. And a murderous one at that.He kills people, then forces his followers to sacrifice themselves, by giving them the Guy Fawkes masks. The police don’t know who’s the real one, so they just kill everyone. Then he tortures Evey, destroys landmarks, and doesn’t really keep his word. But the bad guys do a lot worse in the film, so I don’t want to condemn him too much.Still a great film though.

11

Universal Pictures

Happy Gilmore

Happy Gilmore

Sure, Adam Sandler is funny, and he’s trying to save his grandmother’s house from the bank, but he’s also an angry man-child.He’s got some serious anger issues, he picks a fight with Bob Barker, takes out his mentor and is a creepo to his old girlfriend.We can’t really discount all the stupid things he does, just because he’s Happy Gilmore.

12

Marvel Studios

Tony Stark

Iron Man

This might seem like a stretch, but if you look at the bigger picture, he does turn out to be an enormous dick. He starts off as a playboy, who just fucks around and doesn’t know what his company is up to. If he partied less, he might have known that Obediah Stane was supplying weapons to terrorists. He also would have avoided the whole Aldrich Killian fiasco if he wasn’t such a tool. Then, there’s Ultron. Also his fault.But, more importantly, he leaves the US defenceless when he decides to stop selling weapons. I mean, yes, this is a good idea given how many bad guys have Stark Tech, but also, who’s gonna step up to help protect America. We all saw what happened when Hammer tried to take over. It just just a shortsighted move, and one that gave birth to the violent side of the MCU.

13

Warner Bros.

Bruce Wayne

The Dark Knight Trilogy

This one is pretty obvious and you can find people talking about it all over the internet. So, why ignore it?Bruce Wayne is a billionare. Given everything that Wayne Enterprises does, he’s not gonna stop being one any time soon. So, instead of spending money on dressing up like a bat, he probably should spend his billions on fixing the city. He could definitely affect more change with his wallet, than with his super gadgets and karate chops.

14

Warner Bros.

Dumbledore

The Harry Potter Series

Pick your reason, because there’s plenty. He could have saved Harry from all the shit he got from the Dursley’s; he didn’t. He allows the Triwizard Tournament to happen and kids get maimed. Plus he’s got a 3 headed dog, crazy staircases, a homicidal tree, a cursed teaching position and a forest full of monsters.But that’s not the worst. He could have told Harry everything about Voldemort, Snape, his destiny, etc.. But instead, he allows kids to go up against The Death Eaters and then allows himself to get offed, leaving Harry alone.

The 24 Greatest Sidekicks in Movie History

The 24 Greatest Sidekicks in Movie History -

In every movie, there’s always someone who’s got to be the hero. They’re the lead, the one the movie’s named after, the good guy, etc… They can do it all and will save the day. Except there’s a catch. Most of the best good guys out there, don’t even do it alone. Han Solo’s got Chewy, Batman’s got Robin and Harry’s got the lovable doofus Ron Weasley. Without them, they’d probably fail.Below, are some of the greatest hero/sidekick combos in history. It’s my arbitrary list, based on the amount of times I’ve watched and loved these films. It’s not definitive and it’s not set in stone. Except for the top 5. Those are true sidekicks.Someone’s got to keep the good guy in check, right?

New Line Cinema

1) Samwise Gamgee

C’mon, he was a homebody who only went on an epic 12 hour (extended edition), because he didn’t want Frodo to go alone. And no matter what, he never left Frodo’s side, fought that demon spider, and carried him the rest of the way.No, one does not simply walk into Mordor; you get carried by the best sidekick of all time.

Lucasfilm

2) Chewbacca

These two are one of the greatest dynamic duo’s in cinematic history. Sure, there’s a life debt involved, but these two are true friends and partners.

Paramount Pictures

3) Spock

Spock is the ultimate wingman; unemotional, logical, but also a fucking badass. He and Kirk have been through mirror universes, time travel, fighting each other and even death, and they’re still solid.He’s always going have Kirk’s back (unless he get sucked into a strange vortex and dies like a bitch. Never was ok with Star Trek: Generations doing that.)

DreamWorks

4) Donkey

This movie is the epitome of an annoying character becoming one of the most beloved. In the first film, you’d never guess that Shrek and Donkey would become the dynamic duo that they are, and kudos to Donkey for sticking it out and suffering through Shrek’s dick-atry.An onion, indeed.

Paramount Pictures

5) Short Round

I grew up on Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom on repeat, and of all the sidekicks that Indy has (Marcus Body, Sallah, his dad), I love Short Round the best. He’s loyal, hilarious, and easily the most competent, and he knows it’s all about the “Fortune and Glory.”

Universal Pictures

6) Doc Brown

If you can support each other across three different time periods and still remain tight, you’re a good hero/sidekick combo. These two are some of the best.

Lucasfilm

7) R2-D2

Let’s all be adults here; C-3P0 is a bit of a wet blanket. He complains, corrects and frankly, he knew who Darth Vader was as a kid and didn’t warn anyone. So, there’s that.Despite all that, his badass buddy Artoo, never leaves his side.

Warner Bros.

8) John Watson

Pretty much any version of Watson can be on this list as his relationship with Holmes is defined by how crucial he is to the adventure. But in the RDJ films, he requires so much more patience and dedication to handle this particular Sherlock.

20th Century Fox

9) Robin

As much as I can find some appreciation for the latter two WB movies prior to the Nolan relaunch, I don’t like Chris O’Donnell’s Robin. But Burt Ward? Man, that guy was a true sidekick.Holy loyal-best-friends-until-the-end, Batman!

Warner Bros.

10) Ron Weasley

It’s not easy being the best friend of the Chosen One, but Ron does it superbly. In fact, without him and Hermione, Harry’d probably be lost and a little fucked up.Plus, young Ron is hilarious as fuck.

12

Gramercy Pictures

11) Walter Sobchak

I’m sure it doesn’t take much to hang out with the Dude, under normal circumstances. But the stuff in this film isn’t normal, but Walter takes relish in diving right into get what the Dude rightfully deserves.

Paramount Pictures

12) Maverick and Goose

Goose is the ideal wingman; he drinks, he supports his co-pilot and his death drives Maverick to become the Navy pilot he’s destined to be.

Paramount Pictures

13) Garth Algar

While Wayne’s got all the personality, Garth is the perfect wingman and supportive buddy. He never complains, and knows just the right thing to say, and when to say it.But his drum skills are sick.

Disney/Pixar

14)Buzz Lightyear

It took him a while to come around and realize that he was a toy, but when he did, he became the partner that Woody needed.

Warner Bros.

15) Sam

While most will say that Casablanca is about the rekindled love affair between Rick and Ilsa, it’s really about the bromance between Rick and Sam. They’re a team in Paris before the war, and they’re together when Ilsa reappears in Morocco.

Paramount Pictures

16) Cameron Frye

While I still maintain that Ferris is a bully and an ungrateful little shit, he does help Cameron out of his funk. Cameron, in return, helps Ferris have his fun. That’s what best friends are for.

20th Century Fox

17) Wilson the Volleyball

You can’t underestimate the importance of this ball. It was all Chuck had on the island, and it kept him human and sane.Watching him float away was traumatizing.

Miramax

18) Silent Bob/Jay

I’d argue that neither one of these is the sole sidekick, but they’re more co-sidekicks to one another. And I love ’em.So pumped for the new Jay and Silent Bob film coming out later this year.

Rogue Pictures

19) Ed

Shaun’s a slacker and a loser, and luckily for him, he’s got a buddy who’s the same way. But somehow, Ed and Shaun show up, kill the zombies and live happily ever after.That’s the kind of positivity you need in your life.

Lionsgate

20) Hit Girl

Frankly, she’s only considered a sidekick based on the fact that it’s his movie. In reality, she’s Big Daddy’s sidekick, and then Kick-Ass becomes hers. In any case, a profane pre-teen is just what everyone needs by their side at at time like this.

New Line Cinema

21) Mini Me

The very definition of sidekick, mini me was a solid guy. Not completely evil, but also not a good guy. His morally grey attitude made him one of the better characters in the movies.

Paramount PIctures

22) Benjamin Buford “Bubba” Blue

They weren’t together very long, but Bubba was a positive influence on Forrest and led to the creation of the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.

 

Columbia Pictures

23) Cal Naughton 

You’d think that nothing could break up this “Shake and Bake” duo, but stuff does. Namely a French racer, a smokin’ hot wife and the loss of one’s mojo. But they find their way together in the end.

11 Times Method Acting Nearly Destroyed Actors' Lives

11 Times Method Acting Nearly Destroyed Actors' Lives -

 

Method acting, which was born within the philosophy of the Stanislavski system and popularized by the Strasberg Institute, has many famous adherents: from Marlon Brando to Marilyn Monroe. The past 40 years, though, have ushered in a rise of brilliant actors who took method acting way too far. While some of the best overall acting can come from the practice, these stories will leave you wondering if it was really worth the risk.

"Too far," of course, is a subjective term. For many, the insane commitment simply comes with the territory. But as is the case with almost any experiment, things can backfire. Heath Ledger - who may have actually sacrificed his life for his unforgettable turn as the Joker - tops the list of actors whose lives were destroyed by method acting. Or so the legend goes, anyway.

The business abounds with method acting consequences that were as extreme as they were short-lived. Consider Christian Bale, who almost starved himself to death for his role in The Machinist. Or Divine, who famously upstaged everyone by actually eating a piece of real dog sh*t for the sake of art.

While consuming dog sh*t may not be one of the worst manifestations of method acting, it's surely the most repulsive (even though Nicolas Cage did eat a live cockroach for Vampire's Kiss). But there's a lot more where that came from, so read on to inquire further - and vote up the actors who went above and beyond for their craft.

Christian Bale, who made his feature debut in 1987's Mio in the Land of Faraway, has always been known as an actor unafraid to take his craft to the extreme. But in 2004's The Machinist, he went way beyond the pale - and almost beyond mortality, itself.

According to sources, Bale dined on just a can of tuna and an apple each day for weeks leading up to the beginning of production. As Bale's co-star Michael Ironside remembers it:

I came to work one day... and I heard 'pssst...Michael!' from behind one of the cabanas. And I went over, and it was Chris. And he said, 'Can you look at this?' And he turned and dropped his overalls, which he was naked under... and the muscles in his ass had literally dropped out of the sockets of his hips... I said, 'You've gone beyond body fat, and now you're into actual muscle tissue and things are being affected.

Nevertheless, Bale persevered, and garnered widespread critical acclaim for his performance.

Malcolm McDowell Temporarily Blinded Himself For 'A Clockwork Orange'

Photo: Warner Brothers

Actor Malcolm McDowell was almost as much of a perfectionist as director Stanley Kubrick. When it came to doing multiple takes of potentially physically damaging scenes, though, said dedication sometimes backfired.

During the famous "forced viewing" sequence in A Clockwork Orange, real eye doctors were used. But McDowell still suffered harrowing damage in the form of a scratched cornea and, worse yet, temporary blindness - all as a result of having his "eyes propped open for too long."

Shia LaBeouf Yanked His Teeth Out And Stabbed Himself In The Face For 'Fury'

Photo: Sony Pictures

Since his beginnings as a Disney kid, Shia LaBeouf has evolved into something of a spectacularly dedicated Method actor. He may have had real, onscreen sex for Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac, but that pales in comparison to what he did for 2014's Fury.

As LaBeouf told Dazed Digital, "I pulled my tooth out, knifed my face up and spent days watching horses die. I didn’t bathe for four months."

Divine Literally Ate Sh*t For 'Pink Flamingos'

Photo: New Line Cinema

In 1975, Pier Paolo Pasolini shook the cinematic world with Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom, which featured a banquet of sh*t. However, said feast was just chocolate. And that's why the scene doesn't have anything on what Divine did in 1972's Pink Flamingos: literally eat dog poop... fresh from the canine's bowels... right off the street.

As Divine, the stage name of Harris Glenn Milstead, once revealed, "I followed that dog around for three hours just zooming in on its assh*le." After the act, however, Milstead became paranoid, and apparently called a Baltimore emergency room to ask about the potentially "harmful effects" of ingesting dog waste. A shocking stroke of method acting, but not one likely to ever be repeated.

Klaus Kinski Went To Extremes In Pretty Much Everything

Photo: BFI

Relegating Klaus Kinski to the ranks of "mere" Method acting seems almost quaint. Kinski - whose onscreen insanity is legendary - drove himself to extremes for veritably every part he played. He was so crazed in his Fitzcarraldo role that a couple of the Peruvian natives (and extras) on the set allegedly offered to kill him for director Werner Herzog. According to Herzog, he declined, but only because he needed Kinski in order to finish the movie.

And during the filming of Crawlspace, he got so far into his role as a deranged former Nazi he started multiple fights on set, and almost got fired outright.

Adrien Brody Starved Himself For 'The Pianist'

Photo: Universal Pictures

Christian Bale isn't the only actor to have nearly starved himself to oblivion for a role. He had a notable inspiration and predecessor: the 6'1" Adrien Brody, who dropped down to a dangerous 130 pounds for Roman Polanski's award-winning 2002 film The Pianist.

The movie, which chronicles the concentration camp days of pianist Wladyslaw Szpilman, was a personal and a professional commitment for Brody. As he told the SF Gate:

[Szpilman] survived this and made (his experiences) available to the world... playing a real person, you have the obligation to do it the right way. During the time I was starving myself, the thing I was most comforted by was playing the music. It calmed me and allowed me to some degree to distract myself from my own loneliness at that time.

Billy Bob Thornton Walked Around With Glass In His Shoes For 'Sling Blade'

Photo: Miramax Films

Billy Bob Thornton's Sling Blade has become a beloved cult classic. And Thornton was deeply committed to his role as the mentally disabled Karl Childers - right down to the last detail. Legend has it Thornton even put crushed glass in his shoes to make Karl's walk "more awkward and consistent."

Heath Ledger May Have Lost His Life To His Joker Role

Photo: Warner Brothers

The extent to which Heath Ledger's final role in The Dark Knight might have contributed to his untimely end remains controversial. As the actor told The New York Times:

Last week I probably slept an average of two hours a night. I couldn’t stop thinking. My body was exhausted, and my mind was still going.

As a result, Ledger started taking Ambien as a sleep aid - and the rest is history. Many who know him insist there was no relationship, though, between the role and his fatal overdose.

Daniel Day-Lewis Caught Pneumonia Because He Refused To Wear A Modern Coat While Filming 'Gangs Of New York'

Photo: Miramax Films

Like Klaus Kinski, Daniel Day-Lewis is known for pulling out all the stops to embody his characters. For his role as Christy Brown, an artist with cerebral palsy, in 1989's My Left Foot, Day-Lewis never left his wheelchair.

Martin Scorsese's Gangs of New York was no exception. Supposedly, Day-Lewis refused to break character on or off set. According to sources, though it was storming outside, Day-Lewis refused to wear a proper coat as it wouldn't be period-accurate. He subsequently got pneumonia.

Nicolas Cage Ate A Live Cockroach For 'Vampire's Kiss'

Photo: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer

Two years before he played Sailor Ripley in 1990's Wild at Heart, Nicolas Cage starred in Vampire's Kiss, which has since become a cult classic. Cage played Peter Loew, an unstable literary agent who believes he's been bitten by a vampire.

Cage took the role seriously, insisting on not staging the scene in which Peter eats a live cockroach. As Cage admitted, "Every muscle in my body didn't want to do it, but I did it anyway."

Chloë Sevigny Performed A Real Sex Act In 'The Brown Bunny'

Photo: Sony Pictures

When Chloë Sevigny performed "un-simulated fellatio" on her The Brown Bunny co-star (and former flame) Vincent Gallo - who also wrote and directed the film - a veritable scandal ensued. Sevigny claims that she doesn't regret anything, but the scene's fallout was difficult to endure for the actor.

According to an interview with W Magazine, Sevigny admits the scene had an adverse affect on her personal life. "It hurt me, in a lot of ways... some relationships have had trouble with it. Of course, my mom and I don’t talk about it.”

On the other hand, part of the reason Sevigny agreed the scene was to "push back against her growing fame at the time," which is the admirable mark of a true indie pioneer.


The Complete Timeline Of Jussie Smollett's Alleged Assault And Eventual Arrest

The Complete Timeline Of Jussie Smollett's Alleged Assault And Eventual Arrest

 

 

On January 29, 2019, Empire actor Jussie Smollett told authorities he was the victim of a hate crime. According to the openly gay Black actor, two men attacked him around 2 am in Streeterville, a neighborhood on the north side of Chicago. Smollett alleged his assailants put a noose around his neck while yelling, "This is MAGA country," poured an unknown chemical on him, and screamed racial and anti-gay statements.

As news of the reported incident hit social media, celebrities, 2020 Democratic Presidential candidates, and even President Trump voiced outrage at such a vile act. Three weeks after the alleged chain of events, the narrative of the night changed. The Chicago Police Department (CPD) have since said they believe Smollett lied. CPD charged Smollett with disorderly conduct, claiming that he filed a false report. Police formally took Smollett into custody on February 21, 2019.

So, what exactly happened with the Jussie Smollett case? If Smollett did file a false report, he could be facing severe legal consequences. Smollett's legal representation maintains their client's innocence. Here are the key moments from the still-evolving Jussie Smollett story.

14 Absolutely Insane Courtney Love Stories That Could Have Only Happened To Courtney Love

14 Absolutely Insane Courtney Love Stories That Could Have Only Happened To Courtney Love

 

 
There are many crazy Courtney Love stories, insane but true incidents that range from the bizarre to the pathetic. After an unconventional upbringing and a youth spent dancing topless and making movies, Love first burst into the music scene in the late '80s as the frontwoman of the alt-rock outfit Hole. She quickly captured the public's imagination with her babydoll dresses and brash, in-your-face lyrics. Love's celebrity increased once she fell in love with – and eventually married – Kurt Cobain of Nirvana.

Initially, wild Courtney Love tales only endeared her to the grunge audience that worshipped her and her husband as the Bonnie and Clyde of rock 'n' roll. But beneath Love's occasional flashes of brilliance, a relentlessly public slide into addiction, bad behavior, and arrogance eventually destroyed any semblance of a positive image and career for her. And when you're talking about the craziest things Courtney Love has done, you can't leave her parenting off the table; she used heroin while she was pregnant and reportedly hasn't been the most attentive mother since.

The numerous freakouts and repeated public appearances while under the influence have permanently marked Love as a laughing stock and punchline within the music industry. Facts about Courtney Love aren't easy to read, but they paint a strangely fascinating portrait of a complicated, controversial woman.

 

 


All The Celebrities (And There's A Lot) Accused Of Sexual Harassment Post-Harvey Weinstein

All The Celebrities (And There's A Lot) Accused Of Sexual Harassment Post-Harvey Weinstein

Since news broke of Harvey Weinstein's alleged misconduct, there has been a tidal wave of other famous people accused of sexual harassment. At this point, investigations are still in the early stages, but the first step to changing what is clearly a broken and dangerous power structure is to listen to the reported victims and learn the names of the accused people. When we recognize how these men operate, we can take the necessary steps to end their egregious behavior. As actress and Weinstein accuser Rose McGowan put it, this behavior "cannot and will not stand."

The list of alleged sexual harassers in Hollywood and beyond is long, and it is growing by the day. It includes men, like Weinstein, who are major behind-the-scenes players and power brokers; actors who have attained legendary status; newsmen who have built long and respected careers; celebrity chefs, former presidents, and even women. Toxic masculinity is everywhere – these people accused after Harvey Weinstein are living proof of that.
