Who is one actor/actress that you can never stand watching no matter what they are in?
By - Boston_Strong_CQB241
Not an actor, but fellow Australians may understand. My mother cannot stand the 7 news weather lady and has to leave the room whenever she’s on. I don’t get it.
In my household it’s Tracey Grimshaw and Sophie Monk. My fiancé cannot stand the latter, and she’s host of so many reality shows I’m guaranteed to hear a rant about it at least once a day
Fucker Salman khan. Dumbass can't act, killed 5 people under influence, killed an endangered deer, physically assaulted his gf, crushed upcoming actor's career, had ties with mafia. Worst part is he walked away from all of this without any consequences.
1. As people have pointed out below he ran over 5 homeless people and 1 was killed other 4 survived.
2. This is about Salman khan (actor) not be confused with Sal khan from Khan academy.
Correction gfs actually
Man sounds evil. Why didn't he face consequences for murder though? Doesn't India prosecute murderers? =S.
Not when it comes to celebrities. I remember the amount of fans supporting him during his previous guilty verdict for the deer I think. Dude spent two days in prison then let go Scot free
Damn. This is some real bad shit!
Lots of others are “I don’t care for her speaking voice”.
But this guy! Holy moly.
assaulted aishwariya rai
Fucking asshole. I've never wanted to assault a celebrity. But him he needs to be beaten.
His twitch streams before ban were just him nonstop begging for money, then doing a cocktail of drugs and passing out.
Well good news!
Jon Lovitz beat the shit out of him for getting Phil Hartman's wife back on cocaine, contributing to his death, then making a tasteless joke about it.
Edit: All you arm-chair psychologists commenting about "personal responsibility," obviously have no perspective of the harm that drug abuse/addiction does.
Not quite. When Lovitz replaced Hartman on *Newsradio* he blamed Dick for Hartman's death. Dick wasn't having it, so this created a very dour atmosphere until the producers stepped in and told them to settle it. Lovitz dug deep, and found it within himself to stop blaming Dick, and apologized. Dick accepted.
Years later Dick and a friend burst into a restaurant owned by Lovitz, and completely trashed out of their gourds cause a commotion. Lovitz tries to diffuse the situation by cajoling Dick away from guests and keeping him from bothering people, but things just got out of hand and Lovitz wound up having to kick them out.
The next night at one of Lovitz regular comedy shows, Dick shows up. Lovitz thinks he's here to apologize for the other night, and meets him in the lobby after the show ends. Dick isn't. Dick informs Lovitz that he never actually forgave Lovitz for blaming Phil Hartman's death on him, and that he's put “the Phil Hartman Hex” on Lovitz. ***That's*** when Lovitz put Dick's head through a bar.
This feels like it could be it’s own season of that Feud series that kicked off with the Joan Crawford-Bette Davis rivalry.
The reason that he blamed Dick for Phil's death is because Andy knowingly gave Phil's wife (a recovering addict) cocaine at a news radio christmas do. Which whether directly or indirectly caused her to regress (she may have anyway still could've said no).
But yeah Andy Dick is still a piece of shit in my book and Phil Hartman is a national treasure so sad what happened to him and his family. Mental illness and drugs are bad enough by themselves and should never mix yet they always seem to go hand in hand.
whoa epic story, i had no idea. Thanks for sharing!
Just the idea of Lovitz beating the shit out of anybody is maybe the best comedy bit Andy Dick has ever been involved in.
It's such a shame the footage doesn't exist (unless it does, which if so, please anyone share!!)
Even just picturing this happening is so gratifying! I can practically hear Andy Dick saying ow over and over as John Lovitz just punches the shit out of him yelling *"You really screwed the pooch this time, ya putz! I'm gonna kick that stupid perm right off your dumb poodle head for what you did!"*
Yeah… that whole thing was super fucked. I wish I could recall Jon’s retort to Andy. I’m sure it could be found easily in search engine. I remember reading that and thinking, “Fuck…dude.”
Andy Dick put the “Phil Hartman Hex” on Jon Lovitz and when Jon asked him to apologize, Andy didn’t, he asked Jon to be in his new movie. Jon replied “I don’t want to be in your movie. I don’t want to be in your life!” And proceeded to bash Andy Dick’s face into the bar.
imagine having your ass kicked by jon lovitz
That's the ticket!
Jon Lovitz will always be a hero to me. I hope he’s doing well.
The Critic! So underrated.
Yes, Mr. Sherman, everything stinks.
About 20 years ago my then-wife and I took a trip to NYC. We ended up getting tickets to see David Letterman. Andy Dick was one of the guests, and he got two interview slots because one of the other guests cancelled. He was basically half the show.
It was awful.
Would you want a slot next to Andy Dick?
OK, that's a fair point.
Every time I see Gwyneth Paltrow in a movie, I immediately think of her "health and wellness" scam
Goop will never not be funny to me.
Part of me feels like it’s a social experiment. The name alone was always just too on the nose.
If I remember correctly, someone told her all the popular websites have "oo" in their names. So she just put "oo" between her initials.
I guess it tracks. I use those websites everyday.
Thos all sound like Amazon sellers lol
Great. My website would be POOS.
I’d be BOOB
MOOB here, checking in
She also plays the same character in every role. A demure supporting significant other.
Sliding Doors is good because it twists her usual role. But post Goop I can't watch it anymore.
Wealth and hellness, more like!
I hate to be mean, but after He’s All That: Addison Rae…
EDIT: Just to be clear, I don’t hate Addison Rae. I think she’s a little tone deaf at times and I sometimes don’t understand why she’s famous. She has some potential as an actress IMO. If she just put more effort into learning the art by spending more time at an acting school where she can get a little criticism about her line deliveries, she would be halfway decent. If she did this the first time around, I don’t think she would’ve gotten as much criticism for this movie as she did because the story line itself wasn’t that bad.
She needs to stick to being an “influencer” instead of an actress
I think the worst part in all of this, is that this will become the new normal, the new generation of actors will mostly be internet that went viral and managed to keep their grip on prepubescent children.
There will always be movies to make money off of their fanbase. The vine era had such movies too. Now the people have faded away into the background with the movies not making any impact. And you still have talented actors killing it in actual Hollywood. It will be the same for the TikTok era, and whatever era follows to, it seems.
It's fascinating how YouTube/TikTok etc. are billed as these edgy new media channels, and yet what is the first thing stars on these platforms do when they get big enough? They dive straight into the old channels.
They want to do Hollywood.
They want to do professional sports.
They want to write a NYT best seller.
What gets spoken about as the new big thing is really just a stepping stone to the institutions that they're supposedly overthrowing.
There are some singers that have tried to become actresses and Mariah Carey and Beyonce cannot act... period... Mariah Carey's role in glitter and Beyonce's role in obsessed and Dream Girls was horrible. Again, both of these ladies are amazing singers but acting..Nope ...
You to easily forget the pinnacle of 2002 cinema, with Beyonce in Goldmember.
there's only two things in this world I can't stand: people who are intolerant of other people's cultures....and the DUTCH!
Beyonce was my least favorite part of the Lion King remake, which also cut great songs short, followed a fluff for like 5 minutes during which it is in literal shit, had no emotion, and had webcam-quality audio recording for young Simba's voice, among other things.
Yes! The other voice actors were fine, but she was awful. Every time she spoke, what little attention I had diminished even further. She was just cast because of her fan base, not because she's good. There are so many other black actresses they could have hired that would have done so much better.
Hollywood needs to stop trying to make Beyonce an actress. It isn't going to happen. Disney also needs to stop remaking movies that were already good, but that won't happen.
It didn't help that her voice overpowered the main dude during the singing parts, there didn't seem to be any attempt to harmonise at all and it was dreadful.
Mariah Carey was great in Precious. Shit in everything else though, even her own music videos
I thought she was bloomin' brilliant in Precious.
The top 4 comments are all James Corden 💀
When I saw that I expected it to be one of those reddit threads that's just the same thing all the way down :p
Honestly I was so disappointed when I came to the 5th comment that I can't even remember what they said.
Back in the late 90’s, my best friend was running pyro for the Six Flags Batman show when Steven Segal showed up behind stage (with my friends boss). He went to say hello to Segal and his body guard stepped in front of him and told him “Step back, he’s on a higher plane than you are.” We still laugh about it to this day.
Rob Schneider tells a famous story of when Segal was hosting SNL Schneider saw Segal coming out of his dressing room with tears in his eyes so Rob asked him what was wrong and Segal said, “I just read the best movie script that has ever been written.” Schneider says “wow it must be that good if it brought you to tears, who wrote it?” He says Segal looks in him dead in the eyes and says “I did.”
Rob told that story on the Howard Stern show and it had nothing to do with SNL. Here it is if anyone is interested [Rob Schneider telling Steven Seagal stories on the Howard Stern show](https://youtu.be/V2B9jyZTp4w). He tells two stories and the second one is pretty funny as well
That story is true even if it’s unfounded.
I was pretty much done with him after he destroyed a family's home and killed their dog while cosplaying as an AZ sheriff's deputy.
how is that legal?
Can confirm. I interviewed celebrities for like 15 years for work, and when people ask me which ones were the worst, he’s on that short list. I had to interview him for one of his many awful music albums he released (look it up, they’re painful) and he was arrogant, gave shitty/short answers, was a total primadonna and treated my coworker (camera man) like garbage. Plus he wore so much makeup, weird dark hairspray and a silk caftan. Wtf. In all of my years, it was one of only 2 times we paid for a shoot and then killed it because it couldn’t be salvaged. Fuck that guy.
Loved that Colbert Report episode talking about some stupid speech he made to a bunch of law enforcement or something.
Seagal: “I have spent hundreds of thousands-if not millions- of hours on my firearms training.”
Colbert: “Never mind the fact that a million hours is over 114 years.”
Millions. Don't think, just go with it
Who is apparently out of his goddamn mind. BIKES
I’ve been yelling “BIKES!” for 47 years
Watching Tom do his half-assed little kicks and punches bring me to tears every time I see it.
What the fuck you take?
WHY YOU HERE
They call it a skippy, just listen… skip skip skip skip skip
I’ve been flying helicopters for 47 years
Apparently he killed a dog with a police tank when he was cos playing a police officer in Joe Arpio's private army. The cunt.
James Corden. What a dick.
Can somebody explain this? I've never heard of the guy and this entire thread is loaded with him for some reason.
He is ungodly annoying
Fucking Bella Thorn. Ugh..
Shake It Up is just general Disney Channel fodder and I didn’t mind her in that when I was in high school, and I’ve been lucky enough to not see any of her other acting ventures. But god damn, she just has a skeezy vibe about her, I can’t imagine any of her recent stuff is any good.
It's quite interesting comparing the careers of the two leads of that show. Zendaya has gone on to be this award winning actor, appearing in a multitude of well received shows and movies, while Bella Thorne seems to have gone off the deep end.
So if Disney is setting you up to be one of their next big stars, they do a huge amount of shitty legal things so it’s impossible for you to leave their contracts.
It’s the reason big Disney channel names either fade away for years (like Hilary Duff or Orlando Brown) or look like they go nuts. (Bella Thorne, Miley Cyrus)
It honestly looks like Zendaya either had a smarter agent/support who was very good with her contracts, or Disney bet on the wrong horse.
It’s similar to how American Idol copyrights the contestants names so they have to either sign with Simon Cowell’s record company, or pay him for it.
Zendaya said recently she still lives at home. I think her parents being normal, strict, and supportive has helped.
I mean look at selena gomez, demi lovato, miley cyrus. while they all went to the deep end and was “wild” at one point, they all are very successful.
Imo zendaya was the only one who wasn’t wild but also successful. i think she’s very close with her parents and lived with them in her early 20s even while she was successful. Her parents are also normal looking people who aren’t show business people. So I feel like it’s definitely parental support.
edit: orlando brown went nuts.
IIRC In an interview she said she was repeatedly sexually assaulted as a teen in Hollywood. She seemed to cope by making herself unappealing (not bathing/shaving, ect...) but I don't know if it stopped. I don't recall if she was able to process her trama and get mental health help with a professional.
Honestly, at this point I'm more shocked if children haven't been assaulted in Hollywood. It's so fucked up and it goes so far back. I remember Corey Haim alluding to it in the 90's and people scoffing, saying he was an addict and he'd say anything. The Olsen Twins, I remember countdowns to their 18th birthday, grown adults cheering that they were now legal. It's no wonder they struggled with their mental health and stay away from the media now.
Look at Dan Snyder, fulfilling his foot fetish in shows like Victorious and iCarly. Even Drake and Josh, with Drake being outed as an abuser, I don't know if it's been alleged but I wouldn't be shocked if he himself had been assaulted and was continuing the cycle.
Seems to be very close friend of Abella Danger. Shake It music video aside, Bella Thorne also directed a porn starring Abella called Her & Him.
I saw one of her younger movies for the first time recently and said “Hey, she’s pretty interesting. Has she been in anything else?” and everyone in the room got sad. I feel like I said I wanted to go visit a historical temple in Nagasaki without knowing about The War.
Wait why? What happened?
Edit: damn yall really hate her too lmfao
She had those diva vibes and she is not even that big. I really only watched glee for the late naya rivera and dianna agron.
Dianna Agron is very talented, and I'm genuinely surprised to have not seen her as a headliner by now.
I tried so hard to finish Glee. I kept hoping if I push through Rachel will graduate and I won't see her anymore. I was informed that she is there throughout the seasons even after she graduates. I couldn't finish the show.
Yeah that’s what sucks so much, is they built the whole show around her at that point.
The only movie I ever saw her in was that New Year's Eve movie but I did see an episode or two of Glee back in the day and every time she came on screen and I was like that girl looks like a real b****
In real life she is, she bullied a lot of her Co stars in Glee.
Didn’t she tell one of her co-stars that she was going to shit in her wig?
I was IN an episode of Glee. She’s either totally method or a huge jerk IRL.
EDIT: This’ll teach me to post before bed. It’s not THAT interesting.
So I was a background performer in the final episode of Glee. I was in the cafeteria flashback when Rachel met…Kurt? for the first time. My elbow, clad in a mustard yellow cardigan, makes a brief appearance.
I was sitting RIGHT behind Lea when they were doing the various levels of closeups of her. My back was turned, and as the murmurs had made the rounds of her getting BG actors fired for things, so I wasn’t about to do anything other than my job.
We’re 5-10 takes into the scene, each one (at least as far as I can hear) identical to the last, when she just EXPLODES, yelling about people getting into her eyeline. So production screeches to a halt while this is fixed.
(For those who might not know, typically when you film things there’s one camera. You set it up and film one person talking, then move it and do the other person. While this happens, all the lights, carts of equipment, cables, assistants, hair and makeup people, etc, are literally behind the camera. Certainly still and quiet while filming, be definitely visible to the person being filmed. [Fun tip, if I wanted to watch the filming, my trick was always to stand right by an equipment cart, as I could be certain that was NOT going to be on camera.])
So myself and a hundred other actors and all the other production staff sat around for 15-20 minutes, all while getting paid, while people moved everything from behind the camera, because suddenly someone who’d been working on the show for almost 10 years needed a clear eyeliner. 🙄
She used to be one of my favorite actresses, but the whole Goop thing kind of ruined it. I will still watch and enjoy her movies like Shakespeare in Love, but she will no longer draw me to a movie the she did in the past.
Emma is a beautiful film and I hate that Harvey Weinstein terrorized her during production and no one deserves that.
That said, no one deserves her smug wellness grifter bullshit except rich healthy people it probably won’t hurt. But taking advantage of aspirational or desperate unwell people so she gets richer off regular folks’ money? Fuck no.
I sincerely can't tell if she actually believes in her products or not. Like, she might just be fuckin' bonkers as opposed to being outwardly malicious. Still taking advantage of people which sucks, but I think the intent is kind of important in determining how much disdain she deserves.
Yeah, I can't look at her now without thinking about what a shameless charlatan she is.
She was great in Contagion, in how she died in the first 5 minutes.
She’s good in the talented mr ripley
I can’t stand James Corden.
This is the 4th time I’ve seen him in this thread
They're the top four comments, too. Guy sucks.
I watched Cinderella last night, and read about it on my phone as I watched. One review referred to him as 'COVID for movies', in that he ruined them.
One review I read said that he was somehow worse in this than he was in Cats.
Your scenes all disturbing -
As each and all agree.
Your face and voice, perturbing.
Your acting, tough to see.
Your lack of talent's vexing.
Your lack of humour too.
Your fame is so perplexing.
I've had enough of you.
So listen all, intently -
For though we've borne the brunt -
It's time to tell you gently:
you're a cunt.
For some strange reason, I sang this in Count Olaf’s voice
Did Corden have a big part in Cinderella?
Yes, he played all the parts, including Cinderella.
He’s one of the worst things about that movie. He manages to make the scenes he’s in all about him. I swear, the scenes at the ball, the *most important scenes in the movie* have more of James Corden than Camila Cabello. He’s also one of the producers, so I have a theory that’s why he was in the movie so much.
I think this is reddits favorite least favorite actor/personality
Agreed. Doesn't help there are so many stories out there or what a pompous ass he is to a lot of people.
Cats was already a bad movie, he did not help it any.
Jimmy Fallon. He always seems uncomfortable, like he is acting/hosting under duress.
This is so accurate. He has big kidnapping victim vibes.
James freakin Corden!
Edit 1: Thanks for the upvotes! He really sucks.
I once had to coordinate a guest for a special “in the field” segment for his late night show and Corden was so late and inconsiderate and rude that he made several people cry. He also personally lashed out at me for asking him to stop being so mean to people.
Their legal team called after to try to confirm that we wouldn’t sue and they sent several insane gift baskets to try to make up for it.
We didn’t sue, we ate the cookies, and we all still hated him.
Corden hates me on a personal level so it sparks incredible joy for me to see this much well-earned hate towards him.
EDIT 1: I’ve never gotten so many up votes or awards. This is insane. Thank you all for the support!
EDIT 2: We didn’t sue because it’s really hard to win a case like that, the people who cried didn’t want to, and it appeared that the lawyers were calling as part of a standard procedure (I guess this happens a lot). We did ensure that the people who cried got to take home the insanely large gift baskets.
You’re a hero to us all. Thank you. People deserve to be challenged on this shit.
That recent Prom movie on Netflix would have been cringe comedy gold if not for that fucking asshole putting on a gay lisp so thick it was actually offensive, not to mention him leaning so hard into stereotypes he made headlines.
Seriously what dirt does he have on everyone in Hollywood that he is forced into these roles despite not fitting them one little bit?
not only was the gay lisp bad, his “american” accent was uncomfortably bad. he was slipping in and out of his real accent so much that it was distracting. if you’re not going to cast an actual gay man, at least cast an actual american man.
Doing a quick scroll through these comments, I think most agree with you lol
His AMA hosted by u/latelateshowcbs is legendary. You don't wanna miss this.
This is so good.
>Hey James. You won’t remember me but me and my friends sat at a table next to you and Harry Styles + some others in Manchurian Legends in London’s Chinatown about 6 years ago. We didn’t bother you but you were a massively entitled cunt who yelled and treated the waitstaff like shit and when one of my party politely suggested you calm down, you got really aggressive and threatening (in a chubby way. Like a boozy panda.) So my question is this; why did Harry seem so cool, while you were such a massive throbbing bellend?
Edit: just to be clear, it's u/wutang_tacos 's comment in the poat linked below
This also reminds me of the story that came out about him sitting next to a clearly distressed woman on a plane, who had a crying infant who was poorly and probably in pain. Quite a long flight iirc. He didn’t make a fuss or kick off, or move away or anything, just put his headphones in and kept a calm indifference. Everybody on the plane thought he was being very gracious and accommodating, until the plane landed and the woman, clearly at the end her wits, stood up, turned to him and called him out for not even attempting to help her.
That woman was his wife. That child was his son.
What a c*nt.
Had me in the first half, not gonna lie
If I'm reading your comment correctly.... I learned something yesterday in a different thread about how James Corden is a raging asshole - he has a wife and children.
“In a chubby way, like a boozy panda” 😂 thats genuinely amazing.
Oh man I love it when AMAs derail like that!
He's literally top four answers when sorting by "best" right now! I don't remember hating him in Gavin and Stacey!
James Corden is the most “worked with the robots to betray the humans and get put back into the matrix as a famous actor” person who has ever existed.
(Saw this post last month-not mine, but thought it appropriate to share here)
A similar question was on Reddit within the last month I think and the top response was also James Corden.
He is absolutely insufferable. I don't know exactly what it is about him but just knowing he is in something is an absolute turn off for me wanting to see it. Anytime any sort of clip of him comes up anywhere I just instantly become annoyed. I truly do not understand people who like him.
Obligatory [james cordon AMA](https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/bqy5zf/i_am_james_corden_alongside_ben_winston_and_five/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share)
That's your reason to hate him
I giggle every time at boozy panda lol
The comment section is a work of art
I can't even find any answers from him or* his crew
Sort via Q&A. There are a few in there, but nothing interesting.
He acts friendly and outgoing on TV but in reality he's a massive asshole who thinks that everybody else is beneath him. It's all an act. There's so many stories that involve him bullying the production staff and treating fans like garbage. I don't mind someone being unfunny, but when they're unfunny _and_ an entitled asshole it's not a good look.
I like how you didn't capitalize his name, A sort of passive aggressive 'fuck you'.
I very much dislike James cordon
I like how I've seen his name spelled at least 3 different ways in this thread, lol.
Ruby Rose, a charisma vacuum that can't act
John Wick 2 was smart to give her no lines. Especially since it would've required her trying to sound Italian I assume.
I was just thinking "she's not that bad," then I realized the only thing I've seen her in is a movie where she doesn't speak at all
okay .... so.....i HATE watching mark wahlberg. but...i LOVE every movie that pug faced goon makes.
Mark wahlberg can only play mark wahlberg. I mean they dont even bother to give him a different hair cut. Its like he just shows up on set in between running errands
I was watching Deepwater Horizon and he starts out with a Southern accent and by about halfway through the film he can't even be bothered and just starts speaking with his standard Boston accent lol
Discount Matt Damon.
Katie Holmes. It's painful watching her in a scene with a competent actor or actress, like someone from a high school drama class snuck onto the set of Citizen Kane.
Katie Holmes is a bobblehead. Seriously, watch her. She cannot say a single line of dialogue without shaking her head from side to side.
Ellen DeGeneres is really annoying
Edit: Homophobes can literally suck my gay dick. Fuck off and die, alone with your bigotry.
How has she been so successful? I have never liked her. Her interviews are really about her, not the guest & her "games" are sadistic.
I think she fell into the Jay Leno trap. Like Leno, she was actually a really good standup comic back in the day. But once she got the regular talk show gig, she turned corporate, mediocre, and bland. Millions of dollars can have that effect on people.
I saw her stand up on HBO a long time ago when I was a kid. It thought it was *hilarious.* I can handle a comedian being an asshole (a lot of really great ones are), but I can’t stand how she tried to present herself as wholesome, and she sounds like she’s just straight-up abusive.
Asshole comedians get away with it when they are upfront about it and are harder on themselves than any other asshole they talk about.
Ellen does not seem to be that kind of asshole.
The mere fact that when the first lockdown happened she laid off the production team who had been with her for over a decade, then hired a DIFFERENT production team to film her “ at home “ show, is enough to put me off her for life.
She forced Mariah Carey, who repeatedly said "I don't want to discuss that", to reveal that she was pregnant by trying to make her drink champagne. All to get a tv moment.. Then the next week Mariah had to announce she'd had a miscarriage.
To this day I can’t figure out if Girls is a commentary on how shitty 20 somethings can be or if she saw the characters as “normal”
Im not alone!?
I’m a mid 40s dude and I was fascinated by that show. I watched all of it and couldn’t figure out whether they were all awful, unlikeable people we were supposed to hate or if I was an old dude unable to understand that the younger generation found it all acceptable? Was it genius commentary or badly made garbage? I don’t know but I watched it. And it went 6 seasons and won awards.
I thought it was obvious they're all bad people... The shows ending makes that pretty clear since Spoiler: they all hate each other at the end and stop being friends
My wife will NOT watch any movie Cruise is in. I love Minority Report and War of the Worlds but she won't watch them
Tell her to watch Edge of Tomorrow- she gets to watch him get killed over and over and over again.
I was just thinking that I haven't watched a good movie in awhile...
It’s actually surprisingly good.
I feel the same, and I even think he’s a good actor. Well I’ll still see his movies on occasion, but can’t really his general energy/presence.
Ruby Rose, I'm sorry but I can't stand that woman acting abilities. Cringe compilation worthy
Not an actor but I hate seeing Chris Brown still having success of any level. After what he did it still pisses me off that he's not in prison
Jared Leto always seems like he's trying too hard and his dead fish eyes creep me out.
when I was younger, around 10-12 years ago, I had a huge crush on Leto after hearing a few 30 Seconds to Mars songs. Needless to say I rushed to the internet to find other fangirls to commiserate with.
Instead I found several forum threads where teen girls where discussing his proclivity for having sex/trying to have sex with very young teenagers (12-16) who went to his gigs. Some first and secondhand accounts, others just rumours.
Just to be clear I don't know if any of it was true, but I dropped my interest in him and his music pretty damn quick. I cant find any of those old forum posts today but it seemed to be common knowledge in these groups. Maybe it was all made up, but I still get a very icky feeling when I see him on screen. Cant help but wonder if anything incriminating will come out on the guy some day.
EDIT: forgot that I read a more recent account of him being super abusive to a sexual partner and also being accused of trying to get with under-18s by other celebrities. If any of this stuff is true I hope it comes out.
The only thing I hear about him is that he is a huge piece of shit.
I know exactly what you are talking about. There were a lot of online forums and discussion groups about his violent sexual encounters from maybe 2004-2010ish? Haven’t really rallied behind any of his work since.
The contrast between him and Ledger is astounding.
Leto would stay in character as "Joker" all throughout the Suicide Squad movie, even going so far as to send used condoms to his cast mates (Edit: I'm told this is a debunked myth). Meanwhile, Heath Ledger would immediately break character whenever Nolan yelled "cut" during The Dark Knight.
Reminds me of that exchange between ~~Peter O'Toole~~ Laurence Olivier and Dustin Hoffman. When Hoffman had to do a scene where his character was physically exhausted, he stayed up for 36 hours straight to "get into it". Upon hearing this, ~~O'Toole~~ Olivier remarked to him: "Goodness! Have you ever tried *acting*?"
It was Laurence Olivier, his co-star in Marathon Man, who said that to Hoffman
A current male actor had a good point. You only see people do method when they're playing assholes. Nobody ever seems to consider it when portraying an actual good person.
Another counter example is Tom Hanks playing Fred Rogers, and how talked about how he felt he had to conduct himself on set.
Counterpoint: Viggo Mortenson with Aragorn in Lord of the Rings
Apparently Sean Astin did Elijah Wood's laundry and basically behaved like his PA during Lord of the Rings filming.
Sean Astin is like one of the nicest people. I met him in 2015 on a flight to Australia (it was a connecting flight before the long haul).
I had my 6-month child with me and she was being very cheeky and was really interested in Sean. He was really laid back.
I’ve always assumed he would be like the nicest person ever and he has such an adorable smile. It’s good to hear he’s actually a nice guy. After all, you couldn’t have had an asshole playing Bob in Stranger Things..
