10+ Celebrities Who Are Known To Lose Their Temper

Being a celebrity has its perks, but it comes with a cost. What with the hectic schedules, insatiable demands from fans — it's enough to drive even the sanest person batty.

Everyone has a tipping point, it just so happens that these celebs get there quicker than most. See what I mean and check out these 10+ celebrities who are known to lose their temper.

Russell Crowe

Few actors in Hollywood have a more infamous reputation than Russell Crowe.

Back in 2005, the Oscar-winning actor was charged with felony assault after he threw a telephone at an employee of the NYC Mercer Hotel. Russell was allegedly upset because the phone had poor reception.

Nicki Minaj

Over the course of her legendary career, Nicki Minaj has had beef with Remy Ma, Taylor Swift, Cardi B, Mariah Carey, Miley Cyrus, Farrah Abraham, Lil' Kim, Demi Lovato, and Iggy Azalea.

Is there anyone in Hollywood Nicki hasn't had a problem with at this point?

Shia LaBeouf

Shia LaBeouf has been arrested and in and out of rehab for substance abuse going on 10 years.

A source close to Shia once told Variety that the actor is both "off-putting" as well as difficult to work with.

Cardi B

Cardi has a Jekyll and Hyde quality that tends to rear its head at the worst moments.

During a reunion episode for Love & Hip Hop: New York, Cardi became infuriated with Asia Davies and wound up throwing a shoe at her.

Naomi Campbell

Back in 2008, Naomi allegedly assaulted a police officer on board an airplane and was escorted off the aircraft in handcuffs. She was subsequently banned from flying on British Airways.

The band has since been lifted, much to the dismay of BA staff.

Val Kilmer

Val Kilmer was a force to be reckoned with in the '90s — both on and off-screen. His former director, John Frankenheimer, once told Entertainment Weekly that,

"I don't like Val Kilmer, I don't like his work ethic, and I don't want to be associated with him ever again."

Courtney Love

Courtney Love is best known as the lead singer of Hole, as well as the widow of Nirvana lead singer, Kurt Cobain.

She's been in and out of the tabloids for most of her career, and once threw a shoe at Madonna during an interview for MTV.

Kiefer Sutherland

Kiefer has a long and sordid history with alcohol; it tends to bring out the worst in him.

Back in 2014, Kiefer became irate while out at a strip club and wound up being forcibly ejected by the staff.

Mike Myers

For being one of the most iconic funnymen of the '90s, Mike Myers sure does have a sour reputation.

During the filming of Wayne's World, Mike allegedly became enraged and stormed off set after discovering there was no margarine for his bagel.

Billie Joe Armstrong

Billie Joe Armstrong has had some incredibly punk rock moments over the course of his career — none more so than when he threw a tantrum on stage during a performance at the iHeart Radio Music Festival.


Watch what you say around bad gal Ri Ri; she doesn't suffer fools lightly. Once during a live concert performance, a fan in the front row got a little too hands-on.

Rihanna stopped singing and smacked them in the head with her microphone.

Bill Murray

Bill Murray has a list of grievances from former co-stars that's more than a mile long.

He supposedly tortured Harold Ramis on the set of Groundhog Day and even got in a physical fight with Lucy Liu while filming Charlie's Angels.

Julia Roberts

There's a reason why you don't see much of Julia Roberts these days — most directors can't stand to work with her.

She and Steven Spielberg feuded constantly on the set on Hook, and the crew even began referring to her as 'Tinker-Hell.'

Alec Baldwin

Alec Baldwin doesn't just save his rage-infused rants for the paparazzi, he's even been known to blow up at his own daughter!

The 30 Rock legend's eldest daughter Ireland once released an incredibly damning voice message of her father's verbal abuse.

Christian Bale

This incident very nearly cost Christian his career. His verbal assault on a crewperson was all caught on film and painted the actor in an incredibly poor light.

It made most fans question if Christian Bale and Patrick Bateman have more in common than we might have thought.

Chevy Chase

Chevy Chase's insufferable attitude and bad temper are what eventually got him fired from Community.

Co-star Joel McHale told Howard Stern that whenever he would try to reason with Chevy on set — the legendary comedian would try and fight him.

Mickey Rourke

Mickey Rourke has been haunted by personal demons all throughout his career. The man who at one point in time was considered to be the next Marlon Brando wound up throwing it all away in a fit of rage.

Tarryn Manning

Tarryn is best known for her work on Sons of Anarchy, as well as Orange Is the New Black.

Back in 2012, Tarryn was charged with a misdemeanor assault after she allegedly hit and choked her own makeup assistant.

Jake Paul

Recently, both Jake and his older brother Logan have been all over the news and for all the wrong reasons.

Most recently, Jake made headlines for stealing Floyd Mayweather's hat and scuffling with the former boxing champion at a press conference.

Charlie Sheen

Where to even begin...Should we talk about the time that Charlie managed to get himself fired from Two and a Half Men? The infamous interview with ABC News or how about how he got Selma Blair fired from Anger Management? Any or all will do just fine.

Sean Penn

I know that Sean Penn's interview with Zach Galifianakis is a spoof, but you can't tell me that Seann's reactions aren't still 100% authentic and genuine.

He's one of the only actors in Hollywood that genuinely scares me.

Bruce Willis

Director Kevin Smith laid all the cards on the table when he was asked what it was like to work with the iconic action star. Smith said that the entire experience was singlehandedly the worst time of his professional life.

Mike Tyson

The man Mike Tyson is today is a gentle and peaceful warrior. But back in the days when he was 'Iron Mike', the Undisputed Heavyweight Champion of the world — he was the baddest man on the planet.

Gene Hackman

Gene Hackman may be one of the most brilliant actors of his age, but he's still one cranky old coot when he wants to be.

While filming The Royal Tenenbaums, other cast members were legitimately fearful that Hackman was going to seriously harm director Wes Anderson.

Conor McGregor

Whether you know as 'The Notorious' or 'Mr. Whisky' — there's no denying that Conor McGregor is a volatile man.

The former UFC champ once threw a steel dolly through a bus window in an attempt to harm fellow fighter, Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Joe Budden

Joe Budden is a living testament to the danger that comes from handing an undeserving MC his 15 minutes of fame.

He's got a big mouth, a loud voice, and one heck of a short fuse. Check out the video below of him berating a writer for Complex.

Mel Gibson

When Paramount tried to tell Mel that they were cutting his production budget for Leading Lady by $50 million, the actor became irate.

Mel, a smoker himself, picked up the ashtray from the office table and threw it through the wall. In the end, the studio revised the budget.


Over the course of his historic career, Eminem has had beef with everyone from Fred Durst/Limp Bizkit to Machine Gun Kelly.

On Eminem's most recent album titled Kamikaze, he curated a series of beef tracks to let all of his haters know exactly how he feels about them.

Jennifer Lopez

JLo's bad temper and diva personality have hampered her acting career. Not only do her fellow co-stars complain about Lopez, but directors and studios have now become incredibly hesitant to cast her, in part due to JLo's incredible demands.

Lea Michele

Lea Michele is said to have tortured Glee co-star, Samantha Ware. In the wake of George Floyd's death, Samantha accused Lea of making several micro-aggressions toward her that ultimately made her question her career as an actress in Hollywood.

Joe Rogan

Joe Rogan does an incredible job at letting his guests talk and allowing them to voice their opinions, even when they contradict his own as is often the case.

That being said, there have still been several times when Joe has absolutely lost it on a guest.
