These Celebrities Are Said To Be Total Jerks In Real Life

We see big celebs on screen or in front of the camera and on social media, and we think we know everything about them. But celebrity appearances are carefully curated by their PR team. Only a select few are given the chance to see what they’re truly like in real life, and they are  total jerks in real life.

When Corden was forced to decide between drinking bird saliva or naming a celebrity who was rude to him, he obviously chose the latter. His story goes that he and his wife were at a U2 concert when Brosnan shoved them out of the way in the crowd without an apology, let alone even a glance.

Mariah Carey

During an interview in the early 2000s, Carey was asked about her opinion on Jennifer Lopez, to which she responded, “I don’t know her.” She gave the same answer to the question a number of times throughout the years, despite Lopez telling Wendy Williams in 2016 that they had met “many times.”

Tobey Maguire Rudely Treated A Waitress

In addition to describing Maguire as the “worst tipper” and the “worst loser,” Bloom told a story about how he once ordered her to “bark like a seal who wants a fish” in exchange for a thousand-dollar chip. When she politely declined and tried to laugh it off, Maguire apparently held the piece over her head and said, “I’m not kidding. What’s wrong? You’re too rich now? You won’t bark for a thousand dollars?…BARK!”

Charlize Theron

After saying a simple “Hi,” Mowry claims Theron “rolled her eyes and said, ‘Oh my God.’” InTouch decided to investigate the matter further. They discovered that Theron “always arrives late to class with a scowl on her face.” Not only that, but sources told them the actress takes it once step further. She asks those already settled at their bikes to get up and switch, which obviously causes a huge disturbance for the rest of the class.

In 2005, Cruise came under fire after calling fellow actress Brooke Shields “irresponsible” for taking prescription medication intended to help with her debilitating postpartum depression. He even suggested during his fiery Today show tirade that it was because of the medication that Shield’s career hadn’t gone anywhere in recent years. Unsurprisingly, Cruise’s remarks deeply upset his female fans.

Julia Roberts Is Tinkerhell Not Tinkerbell

When Steven Spielberg directed the 1991 Peter Pan adaptation Hook, he cast Roberts as Tinkerbell. He wrote in his book Steven Spielberg: A Biography that the actress would lock herself in her trailer for hours on end. Then, she’d show up “ludicrously late” to set, and never apologized. She behaved so badly that crew members allegedly even nicknamed her “Tinkerhell.”

Oh, and let’s not forget Lee’s 2019 Oscars stint, when he stormed out of the ceremony in a huff after BlacKkKlansman failed to win the award for Best Picture. Though Lee had already won the award for Best Director for the same film, AP reporter Andrew Dalton said the director stood up in the middle of the speeches and angrily waved his arms while trying to exit the theater.

Jonah Hill Hates Interviews

Hill sat down with Ornella Fleury who started her interview with jokes relating to his then-latest film, This is the End. Fleury’s jokes didn’t land with the actor. Instead of playing along though, Hill shot her down, saying: “I’m glad I came on this show to get ridiculed by your local weather girl.” Harsh!

Rihanna Hit A Fan


Rihanna promptly smacked a fan on her over the head with her microphone. Rihanna made headlines once again for mocking a 16-year-old girl over her prom dress that was designed to pay tribute to the singer. The Hollywood icon posted a photo of herself wearing the get-up, captioned “IG,” alongside a photo of super-fan Alexis Carter in the same outfit with a caption that read “Real Life.”
