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.

16 Stars Who Refused To Take Photos With Fans

ian-somerhalder-jennifer-lawrenceWhile there’s truth to the notion that fans make the stars, celebrities are still human beings. They don’t deserve to be treated like a commodity. We may feel that we know them, but they don’t know us.

There are a few stars who are more than happy to accommodate fans. Actors like Elijah Wood, Tom Hanks, and Cole Sprouse have even turned the celebrity photo into an art form. But there are others who just aren’t that into it.

It doesn’t matter how much money we’ve contributed to their box office earnings. Stars don’t owe us anything. Most have perfectly reasonable explanations for refusing a photo. Some just want a day to themselves or with their family. Maybe it’s just not a good time.

More accommodating celebrities have even offered an alternative interaction like a handshake, a hug, or a Q&A session, but they say that people rarely take them up on it. For this reason, several celebrities have pointed out the distinction between true fans and people who just want the bragging rights of having a photo with anyone famous.

If the stars are just like us, they deserve human decency.

Here are 16 Stars Who Refused To Take Photos With Fans.

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.
