Usually, when we think of celebrities, humility isn’t the first word that comes up in our heads. Given circumstances and the environment that our starlets spend most of their time in, it seems almost understandable that their requests and necessities would become a lot more demanding. But there is a difference between asking your PR to bring you crystal clear water from the Swiss mountains and counting yourself among the meanest celebrities from Hollywood.
These starlets have managed to build quite the negative reputation behind the scenes and they’ve become the absolute dread of all of Hollywood with their infamous rudeness. Here, we give you some of the meanest celebrities whose bad side you’d never like to see.
#10 Shia LaBeouf
Shia’s vicious cycle started after Indiana Jones: Kingdom of the Crystal Skull completely bombed at the box office. It seems that the flop triggered in the Transformers actor an insatiable desire to prove his worth and that he is capable of doing more than mainstream flicks. Unfortunately, he chose to go about it by trash-talking the movie first and letting everyone know of how disappointing it was. Ever since, Shia LaBeouf built notoriety for his backhanded comments and general rudeness.
#9 Julia Roberts
It’s difficult to look at Julia Roberts’ ginger and bright smile and see her as anything but an utter and complete sweetheart. Unfortunately, Roberts is one of the meanest celebrities on this list and not just because of professional reasons. Nancy Motes, the actress’ sister, committed suicide after what she claimed have been years of bullying from Roberts. To twist the knife even more, the actress delivered a brutal eulogy at her funeral.
#8 Mike Myers
Further confirming that appearances are deceiving, Mike Myers proves that he’s tricked us all into not considering him to be one of the meanest celebrities in Hollywood. The lovable goof seems to be less lovable in real life, as people who had worked with him claimed he’s rude, arrogant, demeaning, and uncooperative.
#7 Katherine Heigl
Heigl is every movie’s worst nightmare. Despite the show being her launching ramp toward success, the actress refused to accept an Emmy for her role in Grey’s Anatomy because of “bad writing.” Furthermore, she continued to bash some of her other productions, with colleagues admitting that she is infuriating to work with.
#6 January Jones
The Mad Men actress is someone that even her co-workers have directly called out on for her mean endeavor. Fellow colleague Jared Gilmore poised a warning by letting us know to be “careful” around Jones because she is not exactly approachable, as opposed to the rest of the cast.
#5 Teri Hatcher
Teri Hatcher managed to really fool us with the friendly and open role she played in the popular series Desperate Housewives. Despite appearances, many colleagues have placed her among the meanest celebrities in Hollywood, things backed up by actor confessions, lawsuits, and a farewell gift at the end of the show that excluded her name on the card.
#4 Jennifer Lopez
There are too many rumors circulating of Lopez’s difficult demeanor to not officially consider her one of the meanest celebrities. She’s allegedly impossible to work with because of her incredibly high demands and her apparent airs of superiority. JLo expects all of her staff to be 24/7 present and she seems to refuse to directly talk to flight attendants.
#3 Val Kilmer
Almost every single director Kilmer has worked with went out of their way to point out just how difficult the actor is. He’s apparently badly behaved, rude, and his personal life isn’t any better either, with plenty of exes coming upfront to speak of their terrible relationships. Seeing as he’s one of the meanest celebrities out there, it’s not difficult to see why his career died out.
#2 Sharon Stone
From what we’ve heard, Sharon Stone sounds like the type of person pulled straight out of Mean Girls. The most shocking thing about her meanness is that it strives off ignorance, with many people being forced to question her wits or if she had any. She awed everyone when she claimed the Chinese deserved getting hit by a tsunami because it was “karma” for Tibet. Moreover, she went on to claim that Meryl Streep’s success was surprising given how she looks like an “unmade bed.”
#1 Kanye West
No other bad-mouthing celebrity has earned as much exposure quite the way Kanye West did. Despite being praised for his artistry, West often loses his temper and ends up doing flabbergasting things, such as storming on stage next to Taylor Swift and claiming she didn’t deserve her honors.
