Talented Folks Who Make It Hard To Separate Their Work From Their Sordid Personal Lives

January 15, 2014 ‐ By

Remember the days when you used to watch Seinfeld and think that Kramer was hilarious? That was until he went on a rant in a nightclub against some black hecklers and screamed that they were nothing but “ni**ers.” I haven’t been able to look at him the same ever since. And similar side eyes are given to these talented Hollywood folks, whose antics and personal lives have become difficult to separate from their work.

Woody Allen

This probably explains why he didn’t bother to show up to the Golden Globes on Sunday to accept his Cecil B. DeMille Award. While folks were applauding Woody Allen for his contributions to film, his ex-wife and son, Mia Farrow and Ronan Farrow were speaking openly about him being a child molester. And seeing that he is currently married to Farrow’s adopted daughter from a previous relationship, he’s probably going to have a hard time ever living that down. This man’s life has been the definition of scandal.

    I agree with this list sooooo much! Talent galore, but lacking morals.

    Side note: Honestly, I don’t think Alicia Keys ruined anything: I think Swiss was already half-way out the door and the ex-wife was in denial…they were already separated when he met Alicia, so to me, that means things were already bad…AND I remember hearing about them having problems in the marriage way before he got with Alicia…I think he’s been trying to get out of that marriage for a while and Alicia was his out…

    Unfortunately, many people who are known for putting out great work also turn out to a-holes, of pervs, or just plain crazy. I don’t understand why so many people work with Terry Richardson because he is perverted and disgusting. I remember reading this thing about some of the greatest and best known filmmakers of all time doing some sick horrible stuff to the actors they were working with, but actors still would do anything to work with them.
