With how much fame, fortune, and events in the lives of Hollywood’s most beloved or celebrities in general; it’s not a big surprise there’s always plenty of things to know or catch up on in their lives. This statement is especially true when it comes to less liked events or scandals among Hollywood’s famous individuals.
Whether you already know some Hollywood scandals or not, this list will certainly give you some interesting if not surprising information on some of the factoids you can learn on this topic. Here are some scandalous facts about Hollywood celebs.
Bound In Blood
Back when Angelina Jolie was dating Billy Bob Thornton, it was spoken that they had lockets for each other that were smeared in each other’s blood. According to Thornton, it was Angelina’s idea, blood they took from their fingers was smeared on the lockets for wearing. It was meant to be similar to the Victorian idea of wearing baby hair in a locket, but seemed much eerier and was quickly shushed.
Banned From A Country?
Brad Pitt was banned from entering China due to the controversy surrounding the role he played in the movie Seven Years In Tibet. China spoke up saying that it was misaligned to their beliefs and controversial, so they didn’t want Pitt in the country. He was seemingly unbothered by this decision and when asked about what he thought on the Tibet issue with China, he said nobody should care. He just acted the role he was given and stated it was just for entertainment.
Since filming is such a major part of Hollywood, it’s no surprise there’s plenty of set drama that has occurred. Fights are quite common, such as when Bill Murray incited violence from Lucy Liu on the set of Charlie’s Angels due to down talking her acting and role. Or when Faye Dunaway supposedly threw a cup of her own pee at her director for not allowing her bathroom breaks during filming Chinatown. And these are just two of many events surrounding on-set drama.
We all know so many celebrities struggle with the ruthless nature that the paparazzi can have. This has led to attacks on them by angry celebs, extreme measures of security or avoidance in celebrity lives, and much more. One crazy example was when Jennifer Aniston was shot sunbathing in her backyard by a photographer who climbed 8 stories to be able to capture the photo from far away. She later sued the photographer and magazines and received damages.
Engulfed In Roles
Multiple actors and actresses have been known to be very in-depth with their acting, but some have particularly taken the prize for being in character. Actors like Jared Leto and Jim Carrey would get so involved in their roles they would become the character 24/7 on set, which caused some confusion as well as frustration from cast and crew members. Leto would stay completely in the character of the Joker from Suicide Squad, and Carrey became Andy from Man On The Moon.
This long list probably led you to assume there’s plenty more that can be added, which is a true statement. However, these are some of the most interesting or odd ones that we could think of when it comes to Hollywood factoids that are quite scandalous. While it’s true we often see much if not most of the lives of Hollywood celebrities, it’s still true that there are plenty of occurrences that get swept under the rug or missed by fans such due to celeb oddities or scandals that try to hide from the limelight.
