Hollywood Stars Who Everyone Loves to Hate

Fans adore some celebrities for their charisma and talent. Other celebrities face a world of hate because they’ve done or said terrible things.

  1. 1 Johnny Depp

  2. 2 Chris Brown

  3. 3 Andy Dick

    The comedian appeared in wacky comedies like The Cable Guy and Road Trip, but no one really hears from him anymore. The big reason: a long list of legal problems, including an arrest for public nudity and a charge for sexual abuse. The actor got sober and became a spokesperson, but the public doesn’t seem to want his comedy.

  4. 4 Harvey Weinstein

  5. 5 Casey Affleck

  6. 6 James Toback

  7. 7 Brendan Fraser

  8. 8 Woody Allen

  9. 9 Kanye West

  10. 10 Madonna

  11. 11 Matt Lauer

  12. 12 Lena Dunham apologizes … and apologizes again

    Lena Dunham's roller-coaster life in the spotlight took her from one of Time's "100 most influential people in the world" in 2013 to a public pariah in 2018. Early on, Dunham hit show business at full speed with her award-winning film, Tiny Furniture, and her critical darling show, Girls. It seemed then that she had the Midas touch, but with the accolades also came controversy.

  13. 13 Jennifer Lawrence

    While it's difficult to identify when the public perception of Jennifer Lawrence changed, it's clear that Hollywood's former "it" girl is "it" no longer. In 2010, Lawrence burst onto the movie scene with a magnificent performance in Winter's Bone, one that earned her an Oscar nomination. Then, despite some debate, Lawrence landed the part of Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games franchise. She also became one of the youngest winners for Best Actress at the Academy Awards, one of Time's "100 Most Influential People" in 2013, and, according to Forbes, the highest-paid actress in 2015 and 2016.

  14. 14 Amy Schumer

    Few fans knew Amy Schumer prior to Inside Amy Schumer, which ran from 2013 to 2016. Through that Emmy-winning show, Schumer proved herself to be one of the hottest up-and-coming comedians on television. Then, as Variety reported, Schumer catapulted herself into A-list territory with the enormous success of her film, Trainwreck, in 2015.

  15. 15 Matt Lauer

    After what fans deem a fairly squeaky clean 20-year career as NBC’s co-anchor of Today, Matt Lauer was abruptly fired for sexual harassment. Three women filed complaints the network later verified. Lauer’s former co-workers announced his departure live on Nov. 29, 2017. His fans experienced a deep betrayal as the TV personality fell off his pedestal.

  16. 16 Russell Crowe

    The Gladiator star may identify with his character too much. Russell Crowe has been accused of violent acts throughout his entire acting career, starting with a fight with his co-star of Blood Brothers, Peter Cousens, in 1988. Between verbal attacks over acceptance speeches and physical altercations where the police were called, the Oscar winner can’t deny his anger issues. Most recently Crowe allegedly physically assaulted rapper Azealia Banks during a 10-person dinner party at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

  17. 17 Gwyneth Paltrow

    Many people have turned on the Oscar winner since she switched to lifestyle guru. Gwyneth Paltrow’s publication, Goop, is the butt of many jokes, partially because her expensive recommendations make her seem so unrelatable to the average person. Examples: $950 toilet paper, $125,000 18K gold dumbbells, and a $244 toothpaste squeezer.

  18. 18 Mel Gibson

    The actor was generally loved with a successful career, but then his true self came to light. Turns out Mel Gibson is sexist and racist. He was recorded ranting at his ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva, using the n-word and saying he hoped she would be “raped by a pack of n*ggers.”

  19. 19 Katherine Heigl

    t didn't take long for Katherine Heigl to turn her role on Grey's Anatomy into an award-winning performance. Within two years of being cast, Heigl earned two Golden Globe nominations and won a Primetime Emmy. She then got her big movie break, starring in Judd Apatow's Knocked Up. Yet, almost as quickly as Heigl's career blossomed, it unraveled.
