  • O.J. Simpson is widely believed to have murdered his wife and her friend, and was found liable in a civil (but not criminal) trial. He has since been arrested again on an unrelated charge.

  • Snoop Dogg, a popular rapper, was arrested in 2006 for marijuana possession.

Divorce

Offensive Behavior

  • Trashing hotel rooms is a favorite form of offensive behavior by Hollywood types. Many examples are readily available on the internet.[15]
  • Mel Gibson, a Christian actor and director, was arrested after being stopped for driving at 84 mph in a 45 mph zone on a notoriously dangerous road in Malibu, California.[16] A breathalyzer test confirmed he was drunk and next to him was an open bottle of Tequila; after being arrested he hurled Anti-Semitic abuse at a Jewish police officer.[17]
  • The parents of Miley Cyrus, just 15 years old, allowed Annie Liebowitz to pose the starlet without a shirt or bra (aka "topless") and with just a sheet covering her front for Vanity Fair magazine.[18][19][20] "I took part in a photo shoot that was supposed to be 'artistic' and now, seeing the photographs and reading the story, I feel so embarrassed," Cyrus said Sunday in a statement through her publicist. "I never intended for any of this to happen and I apologize to my fans who I care so deeply about." [5]
"... a situation was created to deliberately manipulate a 15-year-old in order to sell magazines," a network statement said. [6]

Rehab

Hollywood values often result in celebrities going into rehab. Here are some examples:

The following all checked into the above facility seeking treatment for various psychological problems:

Hypocrisy

Hollywood personalities often propose legislation such as outlawing private gun ownership, or speak out against things such as anti-gun laws, but have at the same time acted in movies contrary to their public opinions:

  • George Clooney on hearing that fellow actor and guns-rights advocate, Charlton Heston, suffers from Alzheimer's disease, said: "I don't care. Charlton Heston is the head of the National Rifle Association. He deserves whatever anyone says about him."[22] Clooney stared in the film The Peacemaker, in which he played an American military man defending the country from a nuclear attack; scenes in the film showed him using a gun to defend himself and others.
  • Mark Wahlberg upon meeting Charlton Heston on the set of the remake of Planet of the Apes, Wahlberg rudely told Heston, "It was very disturbing meeting you." Later, Wahlberg would have this to say at the MTV Movie Awards: "I believe Charlton Heston is America's best villain because he loves guns so much. Maybe he should get the award for being president of the National Rifle Association."[23] Wahlberg's character in Planet of the Apes uses a gun to defend himself and other humans from the apes who would rule over them.
