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?

Game Of Thrones: 22 Burning Questions Season 8 MUST Answer

Game Of Thrones: 22 Burning Questions Season 8 MUST Answer -

 

It’s only a mere few days until April 14th when the 8th and final season of Game of Thrones begins. Six episodes later, it’ll all be over. But will we leave satisfied?I don’t envy the producers of a dense show like this one. There have been 7 seasons already, with so many dangling plot threads, prophesies, a shit-ton of incest, and other strange things, that there’s no way that everyone can leave satisfied with all plot lines resolved. I’m hoping they can try to tackle these before the inevitable end.I know that this isn’t all of them, so if there’s a plot thread I missed, toss ’em in the comments.

TARANTINO'S TOP TEN (+1) FAVORITE FILMS WILL INSPIRE FLEDGLING DIRECTORS

TARANTINO'S TOP TEN (+1) FAVORITE FILMS WILL INSPIRE FLEDGLING DIRECTORS -

Every director’s got a list of movies that inspired them and shaped their vision. Sure, you can go to a film school to learn the techniques and visual language you need to make a great film, or you can just watch a shit ton of movies and take bits and pieces of each to make your own vision. Quentin Tarantino falls into the latter camp.For him, though, each choice he makes today for his movies, is a deliberate callback to a genre, character, costume or specific scene from the movies that shaped him. He’s had countless of interviews where he’s listed his top films, and that list usually ends up at 12, but it’s never completely consistent in terms of the films and the order. The most common is THIS list of amazing classics, but there’s also a handwritten list (recreated above by Open Culture), that throws some new ones into the mix.So, I’m thinking, we watch them all this weekend? Goovy.

2

American International Pictures

Rolling Thunder (1977)I might be missing something, but this is a pretty generic revenge thriller starring Tommy Lee Jones and William Devane. Devane’s a veteran who seeks revenge against the guys who broke into his house and killed his family. That’s not to say that it isn’t good; there’s a hand vs. garbage compactor scene that’s pretty horrific.The premise has been done a thousand times, and while the action is top notch and it’s incredibly violent, I’m too sure what makes it stand out more than Death Wish orStraw Dogs. Regardless, I’m sure he loves it for reasons we mere mortals cannot understand.

3

MGM

Pretty Maids All in a Row (1971)This mixture of dark comedy and murder mystery is the only writing credit of Gene Roddenberry; the creator of Star Trek. Starring Rock Hudson as a guidance counsellor who’s trying to nail as many beautiful students he can, before they all get murdered.This movie is so pitch black with humor, inappropriate moments and counter-culturalism that it’s perfect for Tarantino.

4

Universal Pictures

Sorcerer (1977)This road trip thriller from William Friedkin, is about some truckers trying to transport leaky dynamite across South America. This film can either be considered a lost cult-classic from the 70’s that completely underrated, or it’s an overblown travesty of cinema.You pick your side, but I’ll do with Tarantino on this one. I love me some gritty Roy Scheider.

5

Paramount Pictures

The Bad News Bears (1976)As far as a hilarious comedy goes, you can’t go wrong with this one. It’s crude, profane and angry, but genuinely funny. It also feels natural, because we can relate to the characters, their frustrations and their feelings.That’s probably why Tarantino loves it.

6

Gramercy Pictures

Dazed and Confused (1993)This coming-of-age comedy doesn’t really have a structure to it; it’s more of a series of loosely connected vignettes that tell you all you need to know about the teenage experience.This one is an unconventionally cool, drug-hazed, classic comedy.

7

United Artists

The Great Escape (1963)This is arguably one of the best and most beloved war movies ever made. The way the director evokes the performances out of his actors, shows where Tarantino learned how to wrangle his ensemble casts into some sort of shape.

8

Columbia Pictures

His Girl Friday (1940)If there’s any one movie you can thank for the way Tarantino writes dialogue, it’s this Howard Hawks classic. It’s got rapid fire sentences and ahead of it’s time gender-politics.Plus the chemistry in this film is so intense. Even if you’re not into older films, you need to see this one at least once.

9

United Artists

Carrie (1976)Out of all the other Stephen King adaptations out there, this Brian De Palma classic is the best. It’s tense, suspenseful and raw. That’s probably why Quentin loves it.

10

Warner Bros

Rio Bravo (1959)This Howard Hawks/John Wayne classic had a stacked cast and featured ‘The Duke’ as a lone cowboy fighting off corrupt ranchers. It’s the long, silent, and sweeping opening shot that attracts Tarantino to this film.

11

Filmways

Blow Out (1981)This Brian De Palma film has John Travolta as a movie sound engineer, who accidentally records an assassination. It’s an underrated neo-noir thriller and takes a lot of cues from Alfred Hitchcock.

12

Shaw Brothers Studio

5 Fingers of Death/King Boxer (1972)You knew there had to be a Kung-Fu movie on here somewhere. As for why this one, I’m not sure. But it is a nice mix of Kung-Fu tropes and Grindhouse elements.

13

Süd-Film

Pandora’s Box (1929)This silent film about a highly sexual woman was ahead of it’s time. There are a lot of twists and turns, murder, seduction, a lesbian subplot and a quiet cameo from Jack the Ripper.It’s a little fucked up for it’s time, and I think that’s the appeal for QT.

14

20th Century Fox

Unfaithfully Yours (1984)To be honest, there are two films with this title, this one a remake of an earlier screwball comedy from 1948, starring Rex Harrison.In both, a composer suspects his wife is cheating on him, so he hires someone to spy on her, and hijinks occur.

15

Paramount Pictures

5 Graves to Cairo (1943)This war film was directed by Billy Wilder, and involves the survivor of a British loss to General Rommel in the African Theatre of the war. This one is notable, because it’s both a war film and an adventure/treasure hunt film utilizing the Hitchcockian concept of the McGuffin.There are plenty of elements from this movie that you’ll find in Tarantino’s catalogue.

16

United Artists

Apocalypse Now (1979)This will always be considered one of the greatest films of all time, and it’s easy to see why. It takes the historic Joseph Conrad story and places it in a visually stunning hellhole.This was one of the worst wars in US history and this film blatantly captures all that nihilism and despair.

17

Universal Pictures

Jaws (1975)This one is also one of cinema’s greatest, and it’s because you don’t see Bruce the shark all that often. Spielberg lets your imagination go wild with the possibilities of the shark, and it’s brilliant.Add in that haunting monologue about the U.S.S Indianapolis, and you’ve got yourself a perfect film. It’s why everyone loves this classic.

18

Columbia Pictures

Taxi Driver (1976)This film is truly dark and gritty, and represents the feeling that a lot of vets found after Vietnam; a world they don’t understand anymore. You can tell how the way this film is lit, framed and scored, that it was a huge influence on Tarantino’s look.Scorcese is a master of cinema, so it’s pretty obvious that Quentin would list one of his best, in his list of bests.

19

United Artists

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly (1966)While the other films in this list fluctuate based on the interview, this is the only one that’s always #1. Between the Mexican standoffs, the editing, and the camera angles, everything Tarantino learned about filmmaking, came from Sergio Leone.I could watch this movie as the only thing on repeat until I die, it’s that good.

5 BEHIND THE SCENES STORIES FROM THE WILDEST FILM SETS IN HOLLYWOOD HISTORY

5 BEHIND THE SCENES STORIES FROM THE WILDEST FILM SETS IN HOLLYWOOD HISTORY -

First things first, I want to put this caveat up front: This is for films that actually made it out the door. There are many films that literally fell apart while filming to never be completed (like how Peter Jackson was supposed to make King Kong in the late 1990s, that kind of thing).These are absolutely insane behind the scenes stories about movies that somehow actually got out there into the world. We’re going to start a bit mild, but work our way towards arguably the craziest one in the history of Hollywood.

Alien 3 (1992)

This movie never had a chance in hell of turning out the “right way.” I actually like this movie a lot (particularly the “Assembly Cut”), but it was hated by fans of the series at release, especially after waiting six years for the sequel after Aliens (1986).And those six years were a fucking nightmare.

Just for some context, there was a full seven-year gap between Alien (1979) and Aliens (1986). However, in the seven years between those movies, 20th Century Fox wasn’t trying that hard to make a sequel. In fact, no one really wanted to even try, but James Cameron’s script for Aliens was so impressive, he got a green light.That was around 1984, so that means Aliens wasn’t seriously being developed for most of those seven years.On the other hand, the six years leading up to Alien 3 were DESPERATELY spent trying to make it happen.

(This GIF is test footage where they tried to put a real dog into an alien costume. It didn’t work out very well.)Countless drafts of scripts were written and are almost completely different from one another. One was written by legendary cyberpunk author William Gibson. One was written by David Twohy, who went on to create the character of Riddick. The weirdest one was written by Vincent Ward and involved a literal planet made out of wood by space monks.And in a desperate move to save time, elements from all of these scripts (and others we don’t have time to mention) were smashed together, creating the religious prison planet mash-up we ended up with.

It also led to a completely chaotic set where rewrites happened constantly and the new young director was constantly shoved around by producers and totally fucked over.That young director was David Fincher, who hated his experience so much that when he made Fight Club for 20th Century Fox in 1999, the studio executives had to specifically meet with him and assure they wouldn’t fuck with him like that ever again.Oh! One last thing. When they were trying to record the music, no one could oversee the recording due to the L.A. Riots of 1992, so Fincher didn’t even get to hear most of it until the film was finished. Basically, everything that could go wrong went wrong, and there’s even more, but we need to move on.

The Island of Dr. Moreau (1996)

Poor poor Richard Stanley. The Australian born filmmaker had one dream: Take his favorite novel by H.G. Wells, The Island of Dr. Moreau, and adapt it to the screen. In fact, he’d been developing the film for over four years.And it literally couldn’t have gone worse for Richard Stanley unless he was murdered on set. He was fired from the film literally four days into filming, and Stanley resorted to sneaking onto the set as one of the film’s extras to watch his dream project totally crumble.

He was fired for two primary reasons. One, the studio didn’t like the direction the film was moving in. Two, he didn’t get along well with Val Kilmer, the film’s biggest name actor besides Marlon Brando as the titular Dr. Moreau. Val Kilmer is known for being a dick on set, but he actually had an excuse. Kilmer found out he was getting divorced by watching TV news on the first day of shooting. To make matters even worse, Marlon Brando was still recovering from his daughter’s suicide.

Combined with the fact that the new director, John Frankenheimer, didn’t really get along with the leads either and that’s how a six-week film shoot ends up turning into a six-month film shoot. The set was so miserable and disastrous that one of the film’s stars, David Thewlis, skipped the film’s premiere.If all of this sounds unbelievable, this is only a fraction of the story. If you’re interested in learning more, track down the excellent documentary Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau (2014). It’s available on Amazon Prime goes into way more detail than I ever could.

Fitzcarraldo (1982)

Just like The Island of Dr. Moreau, there is an excellent documentary about the horror-show that was the production of Fitzcarraldo called Burden of Dreams (1982). If you watch Fitzcarraldo, you have to watch Burden of Dreams. You know a film set has gone wrong when one of the locals walks up to the director and offers to murder the lead actor for a nominal fee.

I could go through the laundry list of everything that went wrong here from the set literally being attacked by bows and arrows (because the set was the actual fucking Amazon rainforest) to the prostitutes that were hired to keep people happy, but what you really need to know is this:Fitzcarraldo is based on a real story about a rubber baron who wanted to move his boat over the Amazon rainforest land to get it into inland waters.Except the real Fitzcarraldo achieved this by taking the boat apart, because dragging an actual steamboat through the middle of the Amazon is something no sane individual would attempt.

Except for director Werner Herzog, who not only literally dragged a steamboat through the real Amazon, but they used a boat that was ten times the size of the actual steamboat from the story. The end result was total fucking mayhem that literally injured countless people. Again, just watch Burden of Dreams, there’s some unbelievable shit. It’s possibly the craziest behind the scenes film documentary of all time, except for the documentary about…

Apocalypse Now (1979)

One of the most infamous behind the scenes documentaries of all time is Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse (1991), even more infamous than Burden of Dreams. That’s probably because the documentary is basically watching director Francis Ford Copolla go completely insane while losing massive amounts of weight.Hell, the documentary is basically the go-to for “fucked up movie productions,” parodied on the DVD release of Tropic Thunder (it’s also the reason that the behind the scenes for Trailer Park Boys was called “Hearts of Dartmouth: Life of a Trailer Park Girl”).

And dear God does Apocalypse Now earn its spot on here. There’s a funny story before the filming of Apocalypse Now where Coppola tried to convince Al Pacino to sign on to the film. Al Pacino said:“I know what this is going to be like. You’re going to be up there in a helicopter telling me what to do, and I’m gonna be down there in a swamp for five months.”Al Pacino was clearly skeptical of the planned six-week shooting schedule and turned Coppola down. But his joking overestimate of five months turned out to be lowballing it.It lasted sixteen months.

Coppola shot over 200 hours of film (about a million feet of film, a number that’s going to be important later) which took nearly three years to edit down into a movie. Whole scenes had to have the sound completely dubbed back in, Coppola mortgaged a house to help finance his movie, and that’s without getting into the unbelievable sixteen-month shoot. Martin Sheen almost died from a heart attack. Coppola threatened to commit suicide multiple times. A young Laurence Fishburne got addicted to heroin.There’s way more that went wrong, but what’s amazing is that the final film actually turned out well, so well it won two Academy Awards and made a lot of money. Which was great for Coppola, vindicating his madness.Unfortunately, his madness directly inspired the final film here…

Heaven’s Gate (1980)Unlike the last three movies, there is no definitive documentary about Heaven’s Gate. That’s probably because nobody involved with the project really wants to talk about it anymore (for reasons that will become abundantly clear).This disaster happened because of the success of The Deer Hunter (1978), which was written and directed by Michael Cimino. It was a critical darling and a financial success, so United Artists, one of the oldest studios in Hollywood, backed him completely for Heaven’s Gate, a decision that United Artists went on to completely regret.

You see, Michael Cimino was “inspired” by the filming of Apocalypse Now. Remember how I said that Coppola shot a million feet of film for Apocalypse Now? Well, Heaven’s Gate shot 1.3 million feet, and it is heavily rumored that Cimino did this specifically to beat Coppola’s “record.”Needless to say, a director that was determined to pull that kind of shit should never have been in charge of an $11.6 million film. Keep in mind, this is 1980s money unadjusted for inflation, this was a lot of money back then, but not as much as the final budget that got up to $44 million.

The production was an epic-scale clusterfuck, and unlike Apocalypse Now which got great reviews and made a lot of money, Heaven’s Gate didn’t even flop. It straight up died at the box office, making literally $1.3 million and completely scorned by critics at the time, mostly because of its three and a half hour runtime. They cut it down to two and a half hours, but this version got even worse reviews because it didn’t make any goddamn sense (and I’ll use this opportunity to mention that Cimino’s original cut ran for five hours).

In the years since, critics have reassessed the three and a half hour version as something worth seeing (you know, if you’re into three and a half hour long westerns), but the reason Heaven’s Gate tops all of this is because it completely destroyed United Artists as a company. The company was purchased in 1981 by MGM, ending a company that had co-produced James Bond, Rocky, and The Pink Panther films.It’s a failure that literally represents the end of an era in Hollywood filmmaking. There aren’t many films you can say that about without exaggerating, but Heaven’s Gate is the unfortunate exception.

The Top 5 Female Superheroes That Prove Captain Marvel Isn’t The Only Badass In Town

The Top 5 Female Superheroes That Prove Captain Marvel Isn’t The Only Badass In Town

 

Last Friday, Captain Marvel was permanently etched into the cultural landscape as a badass superhero. That’s not to say she was unknown (the character was first introduced in 1968), but compared to big-name superheroes like Wonder Woman, Spiderman, Batman, and Wolverine, Captain Marvel wasn’t exactly a household name. To commemorate this exciting event, we’ve decided to count down the Top 5 Female Superheroes that Captain Marvel will have to top before being considered the toughest superheroine around, which might happen sooner rather than later.

 

5. Rogue

Rogue's power is copying other people's powers. The possibilities are endless, and while she hasn't necessarily hit peak badassery in the movies, copying people's powers means the sky's the limit for her.

 

4. The Wasp

As far as movies go, The Wasp is still fairly new on the scene. After her superhero debut in Ant-man and the Wasp, she proved she has what it takes to fight alongside the big boys (or girls).

 

3. X-23

X-23 could seem like an out-of-the-box pick, but after a re-watch of Logan and the viewing of her slashing and dismembering hordes of men, we can't keep her out of the conversation.

 

2. Storm

Storm's ability is to harness the actual weather. How a mutant ability could possibly do that is another story, but someone who can hit you with a tornado or a bolt of lightning is basically impossible to beat.

 

1. Wonder Woman

Was it ever going to be anyone else? The 2017 version of Wonder Woman was one of the best superhero films of all time and Gal Gadot's portrayal left the audience feeling as intimidated as we were intrigued. Wonder Woman is going to be the top of the list forever, and Captain Marvel should be hoping to get to No. 2.


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]

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.

6

Paramount

Old Rose

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.

7

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.

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.

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.

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.


13 Famous People Who Prove There’s a Fine Line Between Genius and Madness

13 Famous People Who Prove There’s a Fine Line Between Genius and Madness -

Have you ever noticed that geniuses often behave strangely? For example, Victor Hugo shaved off half of his hair and beard to deter himself from going outside and distracting himself from writing his novel. Charles Dickens liked to visit the Paris morgue and Sarah Bernhardt used to sleep in a coffin.

Charles Darwin

The famous naturalist and traveler had really weird food preferences. During his trip around the world, Charles Darwin not only studied the faunal diversity, but also ate every single creature he met, including insects.

He really liked armadillo and an unnamed chocolate-colored rodent, but was disappointed with a puma stew. Darwin was even a member of The Glutton Club: they met each week and discussed which exotic dishes they’d tried.

Abraham Lincoln

The 16th president of the USA used to keep all important documents in his famous hat. What’s more, he started growing a beard after one young girl said that all ladies loved sideburns.

Victor Hugo

The writer forced himself to work using some weird methods. He made his servants take all his clothes away, so that he wasn’t able to leave his house. And when he worked on The Hunchback of Notre-Dame, he cut off half of his beard and hair and threw the scissors away.

Gabrielle Coco Chanel

The famous fashion designer always carried scissors around her neck. Once she noticed one of her models came wearing a dress created by another designer. Chanel cut her garment and said it looked more elegant that way.

Friedrich Schiller

Once Johann Goethe was waiting for Friedrich Schiller in his office. Suddenly he noticed an unpleasant smell. Trying to find where it came from, he opened a desk drawer, and found a pile of rotten apples. It turned out that the smell inspired the writer and helped him work.

Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens’ favorite entertainment was to visit the Paris morgue. He admitted, “When I’m Paris, an unknown force makes me visit the morgue. I don’t want to go there, but I go.” The writer also used to follow a champagne diet prescribed by a doctor.

Henry Ford

The American inventor liked to eat weeds. Ford went into the fields, picked the grass under his feet, and made sandwiches, salads, and soups out of it. He thought of the body as a machine and that the stomach was like a boiler and needed the proper fuel to run efficiently.

George Gordon Byron

Lord Byron was a really eccentric person who loved animals. When he entered Cambridge, he tried to carry his dog with him though pet dogs were banned.

When he was prohibited, the poet bought a bear and took it to his room. He argued that since bears weren’t specifically mentioned in their statutes, the college had no legal grounds for complaint. Byron won the argument against the college and the bear stayed with him in his room.

Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde also liked exotic animals. He loved to walk with his pet lobster and used to go with a white rat to the theatre.

Clark Gable

The actor was obsessed with cleanliness. He always changed his clothes, took a shower several times a day, but avoided using a bath (in Gable’s mansion, there were no baths at all.) He was disgusted by the thought of sitting in dirty water.

Thomas Edison

The inventor had an unusual method of hiring new research scientists. He invited them for dinner, offered them a bowl of soup, and watched. Those who added salt before trying a dish were ruled out. Edison didn’t want to work with people who drew conclusions before carrying out an experiment.

Sarah Bernhardt

This French “theatre queen” was also really eccentric. She had a coffin that she always took with her when she moved around. She slept, read, and learned her roles by heart in there.

Ludwig Van Beethoven

The composer had many different oddities. For example, he rarely shaved, since he thought shaving was bad for creativity. He also didn’t pay attention to his looks. His clothes were usually dirty and ragged and his gray hair stood on end. What’s more, he requested coffee made of exactly 60 beansonly.

Bonus: David Bowie

Do you remember David’s famous look when he had no eyebrows and red hair? People used to think he shaved his eyebrows on purpose. But in fact, they fell out as a result of a nervous breakdown that occurred when his song Drive-In Saturday was rejected.


10 Bizarre Celebrity Conspiracies

10 Bizarre Celebrity Conspiracies

Hollywood! It's the epicentre of showbusiness and celebrity life. But according to these, theories, Hollywood and the celebrities in it, is a WHOLE lot darker than we ever thought - if you choose to believe them of course... These are 10 Bizarre Celebrity Conspiracies!


10 Golden Hollywood Scandals That Were Covered Up

10 Golden Hollywood Scandals That Were Covered Up -

 

 

It may be tempting to think that Hollywood today has reached its lowest point in regard to its ethics and those of its stars. Unfortunately, it seems that the movie business has attracted scandal since its birth.

In addition, to maintain the reputation of its stars, studios have always hired fixers, double dealers, and outright shysters to do the dirty work for them. Here are 10 scandals from the Golden Age of Hollywood that they tried to cover up.

10 Loretta Young Adopted Her Own Child

Loretta Young had it all. She was beautiful. She was successful. She was recognized, even winning an Oscar for her 1947 performance in The Farmer’s Daughter. And she was hiding a secret.

After she finished shooting The Call of the Wild in 1935, Young disappeared from view. When she returned to public life 18 months later, she brought along her “adopted” daughter, Judy. In fact, the child was her own, the product of a brief relationship with (married) Clark Gable. It is unclear if the relationship was consensual.

Young was a strict Catholic and would not have contemplated aborting the child. The secret was kept from everyone, including her daughter, for 31 years. Although rumors of the child’s true parentage were whispered around Hollywood for years, they were only officially confirmed in a memoir published after the star’s death.[1]

9 Joan Crawford Did A Porno

Joan Crawford was one of MGM’s biggest stars. She was known to be ambitious and somewhat ruthless in her pursuit of her career. She won an Oscar for her leading role in Mildred Pierce in 1945 and received two other Oscar nominations and a host of other awards. Crawford was Hollywood gold.

This must have made the persistent rumors that she had begun her career with roles in porn a little awkward. She is said to have starred in a film called Velvet Lips. At one point, her brother was offering copies to the highest bidder. There are no longer any copies of the film in existence, possibly due to the efforts of studio fixers employed to see that stars were not embarrassed by their indiscretions.

Crawford’s first husband, Douglas Fairbanks Jr., confirmed that she was blackmailed over the films, even receiving threatening calls when they were on their honeymoon. A film was sent to the studio, but the company lawyer denied that the woman in the film was Crawford.

She denied participating in porn films until the end of her life. However, her FBI file (because, you know, McCarthy and all that) appears to confirm the existence of the film. Crawford’s biographers state that “a film of Crawford in compromising positions was circulated . . . to be used at smokers” (men-only stag parties).[2]

They also suggest that the file contains evidence that the studio paid Crawford’s brother as much as $100,000 to stop him from leaking the film. This is supported by mysterious payments made by Crawford to the studio, which are supposedly repayment for the blackmail money.

Crawford’s family problems continued after her death. Her daughter, whom Crawford had disinherited, published a tell-all memoir, Mommie Dearest, which depicted the star in a whole new light.

8 Jean Harlow Was Forced To Marry

Jean Harlow was the original blonde bombshell. She catapulted to stardom after appearing in Howard Hughes’s Hell’s Angels. It is fair to say that Harlow had a tumultuous life. She married her first husband on January 18, 1927, at age 15 and was divorced a few years later. Her second husband was killed in a gunshot accident, though there was much speculation that she had killed him.

Then she had an affair with a married boxer. When the scandal threatened to become public, the studio forced her to marry cinematographer Harold Rosson. However, the marriage was for public consumption only and they quietly divorced a few months later when the scandal was forgotten.

Harlow did want to marry William Powell. She fell for him in 1935 on the set of Reckless and wanted to get married, have a family, and give up acting. But Powell was not reckless. He had just been divorced from Carole Lombard and thought the public might not like him to marry so soon. He also made it clear that he never wanted children.

Powell’s caution, however, only went so far, and Harlow soon found herself pregnant. Knowing that he did not want children and that the studio would not tolerate an unmarried mother, Harlow aborted the baby that she wanted and never told Powell what had happened.[3]

7 William Randolph Hearst Tried To Shoot Charlie Chaplin (And Killed Someone Else Instead)

Photo credit: James E. Purdy

William Randolph Hearst was a businessman, politician, and newspaper publisher. In fact, he was a tycoon with the largest newspaper business in the world, one of the most powerful people in America, and the inspiration for Orson Welles’s masterpiece, Citizen Kane. Hearst was known to be ruthless, hot-tempered, and, occasionally, downright nasty.

So it is fair to assume that he would not have taken news of his mistress having an affair lying down. He believed that Marion Davies was sleeping with Charlie Chaplin. Instead of confronting Chaplin outright, Hearst invited Chaplin and a number of other film people to join Hearst on his yacht. This must have made for rather uncomfortable small talk.

Thomas Ince was a Hollywood producer who specialized in Western films. His studio was profitable for a while, but it began to flounder. Looking for investors, Ince boarded Hearst’s yacht, hoping that the trip would change his fortunes. It did.

The official version of the death—certainly the one that Hearst had printed with indecent haste in his newspapers—was that Ince had developed digestive problems which proved fatal despite his swift hospitalization. Ince’s body was immediately cremated.

Despite Hearst’s vigorous attempts to control the publicity surrounding Ince’s death, rumors kept surfacing that Hearst had shot at Chaplin, missed, and killed Ince instead. Although the Los Angeles Times ran the headline “Movie Producer Shot on Hearst Yacht,” it was swiftly pulled and later editions carried no mention of the shooting.[4]

A secretary aboard the yacht was quoted as saying that he had seen Ince bleeding from a bullet wound to the head. Ince’s wife was unavailable for comment as she had embarked upon a sudden tour of Europe.

 6 Tallulah Bankhead Had Multiple Abortions

Tallulah Bankhead was as famous inside Hollywood for her sexual activity as she was for her beauty around the rest of the world. At one point, she was said to have had 185 notches on her bedpost and she hadn’t finished counting.

Knowing that the studios would not have tolerated a pregnant star, Bankhead had four abortions by age 30. She wasn’t the only one. The studios had established protocols for this contingency and booked women into hospitals under false names for vague procedures. They were attended only by their own doctors, and visitors were strictly prohibited.

Bankhead was one of the few regular visitors to the hospital. She was briefly married to a man whose proposal she accepted because “he’s the only one who ever asked me.” It didn’t last.

Her promiscuity was legendary. She had affairs with men and women, often in semipublic places, and made a practice of opening her door to visitors naked. She is even said to have flashed the audience while performing in a Broadway play, causing a priest and three nuns to walk out.

Bankhead is said to have regretted her abortions later in life when she found herself unable to have children due to a hysterectomy performed after she contracted gonorrhea.[5]

5 Patricia Douglas Was Raped

Photo credit: vanityfair.com

Patricia Douglas was a wannabe star. At 20, she was invited to attend an audition for MGM studios. Unknown to her, the “audition” was a party thrown by Louis B. Mayer for MGM’s sales executives. The party had been in swing for three days by the time Douglas attended, believing that she might be getting her “big break.”

Douglas was not worldly wise. She was a virgin from Kansas City, Missouri, who dreamed of being a star. She was not the only girl invited. In all, around 120 young women were bused in to “entertain” approximately 300 drunken delegates at a remote ranch. Dressed in cowboy hats, short skirts, and boots, the girls were promised a hot meal and $7.50 for the entire day.

Still under the impression that they were taking part in a screen test, the girls had their makeup done and were told to wait on the “set.” Knowing that the film business was difficult and wanting to be professional, they waited for their cue. However, the sales executives believed that the girls were a different sort of professional altogether.[6]

Without transport or telephones, the women had no means of escape and had to fend off the male advances as best they could.

Douglas was brutally raped. Unlike others in Hollywood, she refused to be bought off and chose to press charges against MGM salesman David Ross. MGM hired the Pinkerton Detective Agency to dig up dirt on Douglas. When they could find none, they coerced people into claiming she was a promiscuous woman who had a sexually transmitted disease.

The parking lot attendant initially said that he had seen her being attacked but later changed his mind. Afterward, his children admitted that his later statements were untrue. Douglas’s character was destroyed, and her assailant got away with rape.

4 Errol Flynn Was A Pervert

Photo credit: oscilloscope.net

It’s not a secret that Errol Flynn had a large sexual appetite. The phrase “in like Flynn” was popularized after his trial for the statutory rape of two girls. Flynn was acquitted of all charges, and the trial only increased his reputation as a Lothario.

Flynn began his Hollywood career after working as a river guide for a film crew, fighting off crocodiles, and dodging arrows from headhunters (apparently true). He was spotted and offered a role in a remake of Mutiny on the Bounty.

In addition to Flynn’s predilection for underage girls, other rumors followed him around. It is said that he lost his virginity at age 10. He had a two-way mirror installed in his bedroom and another allegedly in the bathroom.

He was famous for his sexual “experiments” fueled by drink and drugs, but nothing seemed to dampen the public’s enthusiasm for him. Flynn died at age 50 of a heart attack. It is alleged that the coroners at the inquest removed a number of genital warts from the body as souvenirs.[7]

3 Judy Garland Was Forced To Take Drugs

Photo credit: pbs.org

Judy Garland was first spotted by an MGM scout in 1935 as a young teen. They liked her voice and her acting but not her looks. She was signed and immediately began playing girl-next-door roles, working six days a week for up to 18 hours a day. To keep her energy up and her weight down, the studio supplied her with amphetamines. When it came time to stop work, they gave her sleeping pills.

Garland married at 19 against the wishes of the studio and was ordered back to work 24 hours after the wedding. When she became pregnant, they arranged for her to have an abortion.

By the time she began work on Meet Me in St. Louis in her early twenties, Judy Garland was completely reliant on amphetamines. The studio “protected” her by not allowing anyone else near her. When she called in sick, they recouped their lost production costs from her paycheck.

At one point, Garland checked into a hospital to learn to eat and sleep properly again. But when she came out, studio bosses ordered her to lose weight and she went straight back on the pills.

When Garland’s life began to spiral out of control, the studios abandoned her. She died from a barbiturate overdose in 1969 at age 47.[8]

2 George Raft Really Was A Gangster

Photo credit: ronbase.wordpress.com

George Raft specialized in playing tough guys like convicts, crooks, and mobsters. Perhaps it was Raft’s real-life association with mobsters that influenced casting directors. His first role was a coin-tossing henchman in Scarface, which set the precedent for his career. He is known to have had lifelong associations with Mafia men like Owney Madden and Bugsy Siegel.

Raft had grown up in Hell’s Kitchen, a poor area of New York where his best friend, Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel, taught Raft how to flip coins. Raft admitted to running bootleg liquor operations for the mob. Later, Siegel, a known mobster with movie connections, helped Raft break into the movie business.

The Mafia never seemed to be far away from Raft’s film work. Al Capone even showed the Scarface director how to fire a tommy gun.[9]

1 Alfred Hitchcock Was A Stalker

Photo credit: gizmodo.com

Alfred Hitchcock was a gifted director, but he was also rather peculiar. Though he was married for 54 years, he claimed to have had sex only once. It didn’t stop him from becoming obsessed with his leading ladies, however. Grace Kelly and Janet Leigh both complained about his controlling nature. He refused to allow them to speak to other cast members or drive to the set with anyone other than him.

But it was Tippi Hedren who really became the focus of his obsession. While Hitchcock was riding high from the success of Psycho, he picked the unknown actress Hedren to star in The Birds. She became an instant star. But she was also tied to a contract with Hitchcock which left her in a vulnerable position.

On the set of The Birds, the director ordered the other cast members not to speak to her or touch her. Meanwhile, he told Hedren that they didn’t like her. He made several advances to her, which she rebuffed. Hedren claims that the scenes where she was attacked by birds were Hitchcock’s revenge.[10]

Instead of using mechanical crows as they were supposed to, he used live birds, which were attached to her by elastic. The birds became distressed and viciously attacked her. Filming one scene with real birds attacking her in a bedroom took five days.

Eventually, she snapped. According to Hedren, Hitchcock was so offended when she called him a “fat pig” and rebuffed his advances that he set out to ruin her. He would not use her again, but he refused to allow her to work for other directors.

When her work on The Birds won an award, he would not allow her time to collect it. Hedren also claimed that Hitchcock actively campaigned against her to prevent a nomination for an Oscar for her role.

Though Hedren continued to work, her career never really recovered.


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'

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'

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

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'

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'

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

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'

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'

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'

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.
