20 Things You Didn’t Know About Leonardo DiCaprio’s ’90s Boy Gang

Once upon a time, Leonardo DiCaprio was a fringe child actor known for his precocious performances in indies like This Boy’s Life, The Basketball Diaries, and What’s Eating Gilbert Grape. Then that little scamp boarded the Titanic and became the King of the World.

When DiCaprio became a bona fide heartthrob for drawing Kate Winslet like one of his French girls, he was officially a grown man of 23. But something happens to a person who has had a job since the age of 5. Their transition into adulthood is corrupted. Leo was suddenly the most desired young actor in Hollywood, with piles of disposable income. He surrounded himself with a posse of other young male actors. Though they were at various stages of success, they shared their fierce loyalty to Leo and a penchant for going buck wild.

Nancy Jo Sales introduced Leo’s boy gang to the world via 1998’s “Leo, Prince of the City”. The now legendary NY Mag piece details some of their more infamous antics. The internet is rife with the finer points of their often-horrifying shenanigans. This list covers the most egregious moments of their privileged antics.

20 Stars Who Married The Same Person Twice

marshall-kim-mathers-robert-wagner-natalie-wood-rodney-dangerfieldThese days, marriage is a fragile institution. Hollywood stars know this better than anyone. But every once in a while, a famously separated couple will decide to give their love another go. Maybe they were too young the first time. Sometimes, one (or both) of them cheated or had a substance abuse problem. Maybe it just wasn’t the right time.

Multiple marriages are not at all uncommon in Hollywood. The stars on this list have all been married more than once – and at least two of those marriages were to the same person. For some, they realized their mistake after a short time apart and quickly reconciled. Some of those couples even managed to stay together for the long haul. For others, it was the second marriage that was the mistake.

In a couple of cases, these celebrities re-married more than one former spouse. A few of these stars have so many marriages on their resume that it practically became a hobby. It’s quite possible that a few of these crazy kids will never quit each other. Who knows? They might even take the plunge a third time!

15 Stars Who Were Unfaithful To Their Pregnant Wives

Infidelity is always painful for the betrayed. But when there’s a baby on the way, it makes the sting that much worse. It’s cheating for two!

Unfortunately, it is not at all uncommon for husbands to stray from their pregnant partners – and not just in Hollywood. According to psychologist Robert Rodriguez, 10% of fathers-to-be cheat on their baby mamas.

What would drive a man to commit such egregious treachery? Some men blame their adultery on a feeling of being usurped by the baby. Others say they were looking for an escape from the stress of impending fatherhood. A few men admit they felt repulsed by their partner’s changing physique or were turned off by the idea of their baby being “involved” in their intimacy. Occasionally, the pregnancy was poorly timed, as the relationship was already as good as over.

Ashley Madison founder Noel Biderman posits that in many cases, it’s simply a matter of the pregnancy having led to “a period of abstinence” for the couple. Then there are those men that are going to cheat no matter the circumstances. Their wife’s pregnancy is incidental.

Whatever their reasons, none of the celebrities on this list are going to win Husband of the Year.

Here are 15 Stars Who Were Unfaithful To Their Pregnant Wives.

17 Stars You Had No Idea Were Blackmailed

celebrities-blackmailed
Renowned celebrity publicist Michael Levin has said that he doesn’t “know any celebrity in America that isn’t shaken down for money, blackmailed, extorted.” Blackmail can happen to anyone, but Hollywood stars and celebrities are especially ripe for the picking because their lucrative careers depend on the purity of their image. Plus all that money!

If a celebrity has a skeleton or two in their closet, they will sometimes acquiesce to outrageous demands to keep the door closed.

If it works in the extortionists’ favor, chances are the general public will never even hear about it. On the other hand, Richard Hilton imparted some excellent advice to his daughter, Paris, in regard to the practice: “As soon as you pay somebody, then you’re gonna be paying for the rest of your life. My dad always taught me. They’ll keep the tape anyway.”

Many of the stars on this list were hiding something truly shameful. It couldn’t have been easy for those who chose to come clean to the public rather than give in to the blackmailer’s demands. In some cases, the blackmailers wanted revenge. Most just wanted to get paid.

Here are 17 Stars Who Were Blackmailed.

Film Review: Clara’s Ghost

All that most moms* really want is to feel appreciated. Of course, everyone has a different metric for what that entails. But for the most part, it doesn’t mean gifts or grand gestures. It definitely doesn’t mean homemade coupons for foot massages. Just a simple “thank you” every once in a while, would suffice. They want someone to notice (and care) that they did your laundry or stayed up late cleaning the kitchen. After all, “Somebody has to do it.” But being a mom is practically the denotation of a “thankless job”. And when someone spends 20–odd years getting shit done for their family, the lack of appreciation can take its toll. That’s what happens to the titular matriarch in Bridey Elliott’s wonderful debut, a gothic black comedy called Clara’s Ghost.
