We really do not know how nice or rude a man is until he gets into fame and fortune – that is when his true character is revealed. Sometimes people become nicer when they get into fame, and tend to use their status to help people, while at other times – most times, fame gets into their head and becomes intoxicating. Every individual has a pick of which celebrities they love and which they hate because of some character traits exhibited. This list contains celebrities who are not nice to their fans, colleagues, and even the media/press. These jerks who are no doubt likable on screen, have allowed their social status and bank balance to make them the worse personalities of our time.
1. Charlie Sheen
50-year-old Charlie Sheen brought in some amazing ratings for Two and a Half Men and was the highest-paid actor on television for a while, but that didn’t stop the jerk in him from coming, especially when cocaine and alcohol are added into the mix. Charlie went on his #winning rant and appeared stupid, but he has come back with a new show on FX and is busy working and being a jerk on his own time.
2. Ariana Grande
Ariana Grande used to be a good girl until her older brother Frankie went on Big Brother. His presence on the show went a long way to reveal their true colors. Ariana seems to have changed as she gained more popularity, and failed to remember the fans who got her up there. She apparently said that all her fans should “f***ing die” when she walked backstage at a concert.
3. Chris Brown
Only a jerk will beat up a woman as lovely as Rihanna. Chris Brown was arrested and charged with domestic violence, he’s been in and out of rehab and seems to be getting a handful of trouble with drugs and addictions. To add to all his baggage, Chris Brown though a great singer with great moves, has some anger issues to work on.
4. Alec Baldwin
Alec Baldwin is an incredible actor but seems to be a big douchebag off the camera. He has attacked the paparazzi numerous times, which is understandable. However, he is known for having a terrible temper and he often gets angry when fans ask him for an autograph or a photo. Who does that?
9. Justin Bieber
He is probably the youngest pop star and the one with the highest number of thumbs down on his recent habits. Getting into fame at a young age and having all the money, girls and weed obviously made this one go bananas. The more age he acquired, the more trouble he got himself in. He has had some run-ins with the paparazzi and he even egged his neighbor’s house, but he has been trying to clean up his act these past few months, it seems.
10. Rachael Ray
The famous cook and daytime talk show host has a temper to work through while taping all the shows she is host of. She is rumored to treat her assistants very terribly and then throws some temper tantrums while working on set. On TV, she appears to be a perfectionist but off-camera, the jerk in her seems to keep screaming for release.
11. Mike Myers
Wondering how a Shrek can be an angry man? Its simple. The former Saturday Night Live star reportedly is a control freak and that makes it very difficult to work with him on set. He is also very demanding and his personal assistants are not able to please him since they can’t keep up with his long list of demands.
12. Russell Crowe
Russell Crowe is an A-list actor as well as an A-list annoying freak. So many people who have encountered him, including George Clooney has come out to say that Russell is kind of a jerk off-screen. Meghan Trainor recently shared a story of running into him before she became famous and he told her to f*ck off.
13. Chevy Chase
Chevy Chase was one of the stars on Community, but it appears he did not like the show, his character or the writers. He publicly lashed out on all of them and even left some hate-filled voicemails to Dan Harmon, the show’s creator – he obviously is an ungrateful fellow.
14. Katherine Heigl
Back in the days, Katherine Heigl was riding high as one of the stars of Grey’s Anatomy before she branched out into other movies. However, her reputation started to follow her around as someone difficult to work with, as she has often criticized her own work and the work of writers in public. She even turned down an Emmy nomination while on Grey’s because she feels the writing wasn’t up to standard. Too bad her bad mouth has stopped more roles from coming her way.
15. Naomi Campbell
Naomi Campbell screams diva and she wants the earth to stop rotating whenever she sneezes. The super model is accustomed to being catered to with all the good things of life. If you ever watched her on The Face, then you’ll know she needs things to go her way or no other way. She was once reported to throw a telephone at her maid. Could that act have been triggered by temper or it was simply a violent show of superiority?
