There are many celebrities that people used to admire who have now fallen from grace. From singers and actors to comedians and directors, many celebrities were liked and appreciated for their talents. But once word gets out about unsavory behavior, fans can lose respect for them very quickly. The following is a list of celebrities who readers on a forum said were the celebrities they loved and now can’t stand.
Jared Leto, once a beloved celebrity known for his versatile acting skills and frontman status in the rock band Thirty Seconds to Mars, has faced a noticeable shift in public opinion in recent years. While he was once admired for his captivating performances in films like “Requiem for a Dream” and “Dallas Buyers Club,” as well as his charismatic stage presence, some people have grown critical of him in the past decade.
“Used to be a huge 30 Seconds to Mars fan (still love the first 3 albums), and he seemed like a solid guy from the interviews I had seen back in the day.”
“Over time though I started to realize how pretentious he is. Like he has some Bono-complex, he sees himself like some profound artist who is changing the world.”
“He has also started a cult on an island near Croatia or around there somewhere. His followers call him “prophet”. He’s also seeks out underage girls and acts out fantasies. He’s disgusting.”
Many people admired Cosby for his intelligent and clean humor, which provided a welcome escape from reality. Cosby’s comedic brilliance and his role as a cultural figure bridging societal gaps. However, the revelation of Cosby’s true character shattered this perception. The stark contrast between Cosby’s public image and his private actions underscores a deeply regrettable state of affairs, leaving a lasting impact on those who admired him.
“I’m not sure if those asking for “why” are being serious, but I’ll go ahead and add it. Because I grew up with his comedy and The Cosby Show and absolutely loved him. When the accusations against him started to come out I gave him the benefit of the doubt for as long as I could. There was just too much evidence against him. Broke my heart.
Danny Masterson was a celebrity known for his role on the TV show “That ’70s Show.” Many people loved him as the character Steven Hyde. However, he was recently sentences to 30 years in prison raping two women years ago.
“Hyde was my favorite character on That ’70s Show, but now Danny Masterson is a rapist Scientologist, so forget that noise.”
“I was looking for this one. It was really disappointing.”
James Corden is great at acting like the jolly good fellow, best friend to everyone kind of guy. Unfortunately, its far from the truth. In reality, the mask has come off and many people have stepped forward to share their terrible experiences with Corden.
“I used to think his self deprecating style and his ingenuity with comedy and the carpool karaoke idea were great. Then I saw story after story from fan encounters where he is a complete and utter jerk. Now that I know he’s a fake, his schtick is unwatchable.”
“Had a friend who worked for him and he’s just not a nice guy. Nothing crazy and over the top, just rude and disrespectful with an overinflated sense of importance.”
DeGeneres had been a popular comedian and tv personality for decades. Her consistently preaching the message to her audience to “be kind” was unfortunately contrary to what she was practicing. Many people came forward to share their stories of how DeGeneres wasn’t a kind person at all.
“I thought she was really wholesome, and watching her show used to make me feel warm and fuzzy but then I started getting really soul-leeching sort of vibes from her and now it just feels like she’s using people. I’m sure it’s always been like that…I mean, she’s there to be paid to entertain people, after all.”
“She basically forced Mariah Carey to admit she was pregnant by offering her champagne on the show and refusing to back down without an explanation. And Mariah Carey went on to have a miscarriage weeks later, which is just terrible. You should never make women admit they’re pregnant before they’re ready and especially not for the views of your TV show.”
Mario Batali was once a loved chef and tv host with a jovial personality. But he was recently accused of sexually assaulting women. He didn’t seem too sincere with his apology either as he left a recipe at the end of his letter.
“Loved him as a chef. Seemed like a good guy, funny, jovial, decent.”
“And don’t get me wrong he comes from a generation of mean chefs so I expected him to have some skeletons in his closet. But sexual assault is a bridge too far.”
“I remember when this came out! The AUDACITY of him to put a link to a recipe at the end of his “I’m sorry” post was just….oof. If it happened in a show, it’d be hilarious. Not real life though.”
Simpson was once a beloved athlete and comedic actor. People were left stunned when he was accused of killing his ex-wife and her friend. The police chase in his white Bronco has been left ingrained in the minds of many Americans who were glued to their screens during the entire ordeal.
“Superstar celebrity athlete and actor. Nobody could run through an airport like OJ. Loved him in the Conspiracy movie Capricorn one.”
“Not many people here can remember a time before the murder trial.”
Joss Whedon was a big deal in Hollywood, known for creating awesome shows and movies like “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “The Avengers.” But some brave people have come forward to reveal how they were treated poorly by Whedon and how he’s really a misogynist. Gal Gadot revealed that he also threatened to make her career in Hollywood miserable.
“Loved his shows, his writing style, and the surface stuff like his stance on feminism were worth admiring, too. Turns out, he’s at best, a complete jerk.”
“From what I’m reading now I’m getting that he’s an aggressive jerk in the everyday sense and is just self-aware enough to hide it in public and on-camera but for whom the mask slips around people he gets too used to.”
Paltrow, an Academy award winning actress, has also ventured into business outside of acting with her website “Goop.” Although her business is thriving, many people view her as tacky and an attention seeker. She attempts to be a lifestyle guru while touting bizarre products and habits and being completely out of touch with the average person who doesn’t have her wealth.
“I scrolled for a long time and was surprised not to see her name. Her bs pseudo health/anti-vax information she spreads is terribly incorrect and cringe worthy. It’s sad how many people are actually influenced by it as well.”
Elon Musk, the man behind SpaceX and Tesla, was like a rockstar in the tech and business world. People thought he was a genius for his electric cars and plans for space travel. But as time went on, some of his tweets and controversial statements rubbed folks the wrong way.
“I was an Elon Musk fan. Mass Effect is one of my favourite franchises, and I saw Elon and SpaceX as a way of achieving something like the future in Mass Effect. Later I learned that he basically just takes all of the fame from the engineers, pumps and dumps crypto, is an idiot, and exploits his workers. He’s a garbage human being that should shut up, and leave the companies he has as they have potential beyond his smug face.”
“I thought Musk was a cool dude until I heard him speak at SXSW and say, paraphrased, “not only do I run five companies, I have five kids, and I spend time with each company and each kid.”
This chart-topping singer, rapper and actor had people worldwide listening to his catchy tunes. But people’s perception changed when it was revealed that he was messaging young women. Many started labeling him as a groomer.
“Guy puts out the same generic music year in, year out. And his advances on Millie Bobby Brown have me wondering if he’s deliberately obtuse to the optics of the situation.”
“He did the same to Billie Eilish too when she was 16-17 as far as I’m aware. Real sketchy guy.”
Tom Cruise was once one of Hollywood’s biggest stars. People loved his action-packed movies, like “Mission: Impossible.” But over time, some folks began to see him differently. His involvement with Scientology, a controversial religion, and some public outbursts have made some fans turn away. So, while he’s still a famous actor, not everyone loves him as much as they used to.
“Dude went bonkers into Scientology. The stuff he did to his ex’s is, to me, akin to what Britney Spears is going through.”
Demi Lovato is a talented singer. But she has had her struggles and they all play out in public unfortunately. But her outspoken personality can get her in to trouble, especially when it makes her seem hypocritical.
“They act like everyone is responsible for their triggers. Taylor Swift isn’t fatphobic for drinking diet coke. A Fro-Yo shop isn’t fat shaming people for offering diabetic-friendly options.”
“The worst part is that Demi has also supported using detox/skinny teas but then says that these people are promoting eating disorders.”
Tarantino is an award-winning director but it’s recently been revealed that he mistreated many actors including Uma Thurman.
“I just heard his interview on the Howard Stern Show, and he was defending Roman Polanski in the worst ways, saying she wanted it, she bragged about it, etc. The girl never wanted it or asked for it, and Polanski was 43 while she was 13. As disgusting as Howard & his crew can be at times, they were clearly in horror cause they gave him chance after chance to realize how messed up his line of thinking was, but he wasn’t having it.”
“Many years ago, a friend of mine in Houston waited on her and her entourage at a very nice restaurant. She demanded that the place’s very starstruck manager go to the store and get the kind of bottled water she liked, because she wasn’t doing that tap bs and they didn’t carry the kind she liked. She and her people needled the hell out of my friend until the manager got back from the store with it, and then complained when it wasn’t served cold, even though he of course brought glasses of ice with it.
She ran my friend ragged, and laughed the whole time. Complained and called him names at every opportunity. He loved his job and did his best at all times.She and her friends stiffed him. Zero tip. After camping out at that table, in that private room that was given just to her and nobody else, for 3 hours. Just because she could.”
Several co-stars from Lea Michele’s time on the hit show “Glee” have spoken out about her diva-like behavior on set, including making unreasonable demands and creating a toxic work environment.
“I used to think all the diva stuff was just nasty rumours.”
Heard had a solid footing as an actress in Hollywood but that all changed after her divorce and abuse trial with Jonny Depp. As she was dating Depp, she discovered her financial problems and started looking for a way out by accusing him of abuse for public sympathy. However, accusing an innocent man of abuse, and trying to actively ruin someone else’s life and career made her one of the most hated female celebrities.
“It might have been dysfunctional but she’s a classic narcissist that blames the victim for their own abuse.”
“I loved Amber Heard. Now, ugh. Abusers have no place in my house/entertainment.”
“Forget about abuse first she falsely accused Johnny and because of that he lost so many movies.”
Oprah Winfrey was once adored by many for her inspiring talk shows and philanthropy. However, as her influence grew, so did criticism. Some people started to feel that she was too influential or that she played favorites with her book club, and her support for certain controversial figures also sparked debates. While Oprah still has a large fan base, not everyone views her in the same glowing light as they did before.
“My cousin used to work at the Long Beach Airport and Oprah was a regular fly in. She was NOT nice. My cousin was such a fan until she met her. Never meet your heroes I guess. She said she was the most self absorbed Karen type. So sad.”
“I noticed this about Oprah about 20 years ago. Once you see her, you can’t unsee her. She seems shallow, egotistical, self-absorbed and all the rest of it.”
