Stars behaving badly
Crime: Hurled a telephone at a New York hotel desk clerk’s face in 2005.
Punishment: Pleaded guilty to misdemeanour assault; Cinderella Man (which he was promoting at the time) and the following year’s A Good Year tanked.
Crime: In and out of jail and rehab numerous times for drug offenses.
Punishment: Went from promising starlet to washout who’s tough to insure and whose star vehicles ( Labor Pains, anybody?) can’t even get a theatrical release. Currently in court-ordered rehab.
Robert Downey Jr
Crime: In and out of prison and rehab numerous times for drug offences.
Punishment: After being fired from Ally McBeal and losing other jobs because he couldn’t be insured, Downey got sober, stuck with it and capped his comeback with the superstar-making Iron Man (2008).
Crime: Pretended to be as messed up as anyone on this list.
Punishment: I’m Still Here, the result of his two-year, hairy-faced immersion experiment, has grossed all of US$406,430 (RM1.3mil) and now he has to find himself a hit role.
