20 Hilariously Unflattering Celebrity Mugshots

paul-reubens-double-mugshotMost of the time, celebrities lead enviable lives. They’ve got beauty, money, and success. They drive fancy cars and get star treatment wherever they go. But they’re only human and, as such, they sometimes find themselves in the back of a cop car. Worse yet, their extremely unflattering booking photos are plastered all over the press.

It stands to reason that most people probably aren’t looking their best when they find themselves in trouble with the law. The actors on this list all had a variety of reasons for not nailing that mugshot. Some had cocaine sweats, or were generally rocking that unkempt look. Others couldn’t stop the tears or hide the anger they felt at their situation. In a few cases, they were at the tail end of a breaking point, and that unflattering mugshot had been in the cards for a while. Whatever the case, these celebrities probably wish they could just sweep these embarrassing incidents under the red carpet. Unfortunately for them, the Internet never forgets.

The stars on this list have become cautionary tales. Just walk away from that bar fight. If you’ve been drinking, call a car service. And, most importantly, if you’re enjoying marijuana and a naked drum circle in the privacy of your own home, try to keep it down. Let these 20 celebrity mugshots be a lesson to you!

18 Celebrity Couples That Broke Up For Shocking Reasons

gwen-stefani-gavin-rossdale-tv-appearanceWhen it comes to the dissolution of a celebrity couple, most Hollywood types like to give the press similarly vague and diplomatic causes for their separation. “Irreconcilable Differences” is a popular catchall phrase that serves to describe the impetus for many Hollywood divorces. It can be a stand-in for all sorts of common relationship enders, such as infidelity, physical abuse, and substance issues. Sometimes, it’s as simple as their individual goals and needs changing or their lives taking different directions. But occasionally, the reasons can be a lot more complicated, and every once in a while, the inciting incidents are downright outrageous.

Some of the couples on this list experienced shocking betrayals by their partners, or succumbed to unusual addictions, taking their loved ones down with them. In other cases, they discovered they didn’t really know each other at all and were appalled to discover the truth about who they married. Sadly, children were often involved, either getting hit by the shrapnel of their parent’s explosive breakup, or occasionally even being the catalyst for the relationship’s end.

Whatever the case, buckle up and hang on to your butts as we bring you some mind-blowing revelations about 18 celebrity couples that broke up for shocking reasons!

Star Wars: 16 Things You Didn’t Know About Chewbacca

chewbacca-star-wars
Chewbacca is one of the most beloved characters in the Star Wars universe, and with good reason. Hailing from a race of furry, tree-dwelling warriors of the planet Kashyyyk, Chewbacca’s virtues are numerous. He’s a mean shot with a Bowcaster, and he’s always got your back. He’s fiercely loyal and one hell of a co-pilot – not just anyone could fly the Millennium Falcon through the Kessel Run in 12 Parsecs. He may be a sore loser at Space Chess, but he’s got a great sense of humor (“laugh it up, fuzzball“), and he’s usually good for a hug, whether you’re celebrating a victory over the evil Empire or mourning fallen comrades.

In the prequels, we learn that Chewie saw some action in the Clone Wars, long before he and Han Solo aided the rebels in the Galactic Civil War. So, at least for this Wookiee, their enlistment was never just about getting out of debt with Jabba the Hutt. Both Han and Chewie were instrumental in securing several crucial victories. His work for the rebellion tells us a lot about his personality and character, but in some ways, Chewie is still an intergalactic dog-man of mystery.

Here are 15 surprising and little known facts about everybody’s favorite Wookiee.

18 Celebrity Couples You Completely Forgot About

gwyneth-paltrow-ben-affleck-bounce
Maybe it’s the nature of the business that causes celebrity couples to burn white hot before blinking out of existence and fading from public memory. When you’re a really, really, ridiculously good looking actor, work often requires you to lay your emotions bare to an equally beautiful co-star. It’s understandable that many stars would find themselves unable to keep their paws off of one another in real life after pretending to do so for hours at a time on the job.

At one time, these now-forgotten duos were head-over-heals, and their escapades were the talk of the town. Not every couple on this list met on set, but most have since been in a more high profile or significant relationship. At times, it can feel like high school, with the constant intermingling and swapping. But when you think about it, you have to kiss a lot of super sexy frogs before finding the true love (that you will later divorce). In some cases, even though both parties were equally successful at the time of their union, only one of them has sustained their grade, or graduated to the A-List. In other cases, they remained equally famous, but had other celebrity waters to traverse.

Whatever the case, take a trip down memory lane with these 18 Celebrity Couples You Completely Forgot About.

16 Insanely Hot Actors Hollywood Won’t Cast Anymore

actors-hollywoodHollywood is the epitome of fickle. Though an actor may be a hot commodity today, there is no telling what tomorrow will bring. No matter how many awards they win or box office records they break, there is absolutely no guarantee that they will be able to maintain career momentum. Even if they manage to stay in peak physical condition, the odds are never in their favor. Just ask the actors on this list.

Though looks will get you far in the industry, only a handful of sexy stars have secured A-List tenure. The reasons their phones stopped ringing are varied, but not always due to self-destruction or a box office stinker. Sometimes, it’s just that the industry has collectively decided they are no longer a “draw” or they’ve found an up-and-comer who embodies all the same qualities but is much cheaper to hire.

On the other hand, sometimes it is the actors who have unwittingly hit the self-destruct button on their careers. Some slept with the wrong person. Others pissed off one too many employers and colleagues with their entitlement. Movies are expensive and arduous. The last thing a filmmaker needs on set is a liability.

Whatever the case may be, though they’ve kept it tight, these 16 beautiful and once-beloved mega-stars have seen their careers fall straight into the toilet.

16 Most Cringeworthy Moments in the Notebook

the-notebook-boat-sceneEven if you’ve never seen The Notebook, it’s a well-engrained aspect of the cultural zeitgeist. Despite middling critical reception, Nick Cassavetes’ 2004 romantic drama sleeper hit (based on the novel by Nicholas Sparks) became the 15th highest grossing romantic film in history.

A large part of its success stems from co-stars Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams, who, after a frosty introduction, fell in love for real. You can see their relationship develop in reverse; they were just getting to know each other when they shot the post-mansion renovation scenes. But by the time they shot the youthful courtship, McGos had flared up. The passion on screen is completely authentic.

Unfortunately, the script suffers from preposterousness that even Ryan and Rachel’s love can’t salvage. Narrated in “present day” by an old man to a woman suffering from dementia in a convalescent home, the story follows an “improbable romance” in the 1940s between a poor Seabrook, South Carolina townie and the daughter of a wealthy vacationing family.

Since we can’t put “the entire movie” as the most cringeworthy thing about The Notebook, we’ve chosen these 16 most egregious examples. Spoilers ahead.

16 Actors Whose Drinking Almost Destroyed Their Careers

bradley-cooper-drinking-war-dogsThere is nothing wrong with getting your buzz on now and again. But it’s not hard to let alcohol use turn into alcohol abuse, especially if you’re drinking to numb the pain or alleviate pressure. Alcoholism can happen to anyone, including stars and celebrities. They are only human, after all. And with it comes the shame of hitting rock bottom. But the stakes are raised for famous actors, as their struggle is often laid bare for the judgmental public, as well as potential employers and collaborators. That’s why a deep dive into the bottle can spell the end of the road for an performer’s career.

The actors on this list either had promising careers or were already successful when trouble arose. But because of their addiction, they nearly lost everything they had worked so hard to achieve. Fortunately, each of them received a wake-up call just in the nick of time. With the support of friends and family, and/or receiving some kind of treatment, they were (mostly) able to pull through. And remember, you don’t have to be a celebrity to overcome a drinking problem. There is help out there for everyone.

Here are 16 Actors Whose Drinking Almost Ruined Their Careers.
