Top 6 Insane Movie Stars
Hollywood can be really glamorous and pretty, and you may get the idea that everything and everyone in there are perfect. The media makes sure to present every movie star, actors, singers and reality stars as the best human beings on this planet. But very often, things are not as rosy as they seem to appear on TV or on the big screen. Some of the movie stars have terrible temper, their own inner fights, are bad with their co-workers and simply act like divas. And when we say ‘insane’ we don’t mean to say that as an insult. The following list has the names of some famous insane movie stars who actually have a diagnosis from a psychiatrist.
#1. Joaquin Phoenix
In February 2009 Joaquin appeared on Late Show with David Letterman looking like one of the Geico cavemen, with an announcement that he was retiring from acting to pursue a hip-hop career. The formal truth was that he and Casey Affleck were part of a mockumentary they were filming called I’m Not Here. Even though that was true, most people know better because Joaquin had a history of alcoholism and was prone to behavior that was classified as eccentric at best.

#2. Tom Cruise
If you are watching Oprah regularly, you probably remember his odd behavior, when he started laughing out loud and jumping on the sofa where he was sitting opposite of Oprah, because he was so much in love with Katie Holmes (his words). Most people think that his dedication to Scientology destroyed him mentally. Brooke Shields and Matt Lauer, both of them had very public spats with Tom about the validity of postpartum depression, chemical imbalances, and the like. It is rumored that his both former wives Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes left him because it was hard to live with a man who was so crazy about his religion, not to mention that the whole Scientology thing was forcing the women to act according the their rule (we will never know if Katie Holms had her baby in complete silence because it was a scientology rule.)

#3. Charlie Sheen
Everybody knows that he loves his drinks and drugs. Sheen had been battling substance abuse since the ’90s. He always dated beautiful women but according to their stories, he was very violent (he shot his fiancé in the arm shortly before their wedding). It is not a secret that his insanity caused from abusing drugs and alcohol made him lose his part in Two and Half Men, a show that was doing really great. He was substituted by Ashton Kutcher.

#4. Russell Crowe
He is also well known for his terrible temper which usually ends with violence against people. He’s been linked to a several violent altercations, but none more infamous than the 2005 incident that saw him chuck a telephone at a hotel concierge who refused to help him place a phone call. There is a DreamWorks biography titled The Men Who Would Be King in which is revealed how Russell decided to deal with a producer he felt was short-changing his assistants on Gladiator. He called the man in the middle of the night, and opened the conversation with: “You mother****r. I’ll kill you with my bare hands.” Of course he after that he was no longer considered playing in the movie.

#5. Lindsay Lohan
Probably the youngest on this list, but not less damaged. This girl has been known for her drug abuse, driving under influence and heavy drinking. She allegedly hit a woman in a NYC nightclub last fall, but there’s that one time in 2007 that she allegedly “chased and threatened” her then personal-assistant’s mother around a Santa Monica parking lot. More or less, if you live in New York City, you should be really careful when Lindsay Lohan drives, because she usually drives drunk.

#6. Angelina Jolie
Maybe today she is a devoted mother of six (or more?) kids, but in the past Angelina was known for being a little strange. You probably remember her disgusting kiss with her own brother, then the marriage with Billy Bob Thornton and the fact that they were wearing little bottles with their own blood, on a necklace. Angelina was always classifying herself as a reckless kid who used to cut herself in order to feel alive. In her younger days she wasn’t hiding that she was abusing drugs and alcohol. Most people will forever remember her as the woman who stole Brad Pitt from Jennifer Aniston. Today she is pretty calm and loving mom.
