I can't diagnose Gibson as a psychopath but I certainly think he's a sadist after watching APOCALYPTO this past weekend. It's one thing to kill off a well-liked character as he's fleeing his killer but did he have to have the arrow go right through the back of his head and out his mouth?
|by Oksana G.||reply 10||12/02/2011|
Don't think Taylor Lautner belongs on this list.
Yes, he is closeted and a bit paranoid about being outed, but what does that have to do with being a psychopath?
Mel Gibson is a true psychopath because he hates Jews, gays, women, blacks etc. and explodes in rage and fury at these various minorities whenever he is angry.

I would think psychopaths would be more likely to go into the business end of the performing arts rather than the actual performing end, since they're more interested in fraud, embezzling, etc. than in having a whole lot of attention paid to them.

Courtney Love may be a genuine psychopath. Suspected of murdering her husband, and of embezzling her daughter's inheritance. She may be bipolar as well, she had a public psychotic break a couple of years ago, but that may have been drugs or the sociopathy.
Most celebrities are textbook specimens of Narcissistic Personality Disorder, a disease that can include the kinds of destructive, abusive behavior that we've seen in Mel Gibson and Michael Jackson. Bipolar disorder seems pretty common too, Charlie Sheen and Britney Spears for sure.

r32, you may have something there. Being a performer gives a disordered personality a lot more behavioral wiggle room than a conventional career. If you're a money-making star who delivers the goods, or just somebody with connections, a lot of tendencies are overlooked that would be serious handicaps in the workaday world, like substance addictions, temper tantrums and an inability to get along with coworkers in a sane and reasonable manner.

It would be handy if people differentiated between psychopaths and celebrities with profound psychological disorders. As a researcher, I prefer to distinguish between psychopaths and sociopaths.
Weinstein and Spector seem to be sociopaths.

Britney Spears is mentally ill but seems to have proper help and guidance at this point in her life. I do not see how she is a psychopath at all, she is just mentally ill. I am not even one for her music, btw.
Courtney Love owns this thread, though. She has no sense of caring toward anyone, least of all herself.

Courtney Love's family have stated they believe her to be a psychopath.
I think Ray Sharkey was a psychopath. He didn't disclose his AIDS diagnosis to either his wife or his mistress, and when the mistress contracted HIV she sued him. Even as he was dying from AIDS complications, he swore he never infected her.

Marilyn Monroe was not a psychopath. Mental and emotional problems, yes, but she was far too caring and easily manipulated by bad men to be a psycho.

R50, do you classify them the way I believe Robert Hare does (as I understand it) psychopath = nature vs. sociopath = nurture?

R55, you seem to think that the term "psychopath" lends invulnerability or an incapacity to display emotion. No. It is not a value judgment. Psychopathology does not mean a person is going to eat children. Also, it is condition that can exist in conjunction with others in a complex of disordered psychology.
Monroe (and I know my suggestion is controversial and quite possibly incorrect) appeared at her core to be unreachable and detached, despite a highly developed capacity to appear connected to others. Her neediness ultimately appeared both transactional and unfulfilling. She drew people to her but there was a cunning in it; at the same time her being lost to herself in a fundamental way meant her coping strategies were ineffective. I think her early traumas gravely wounded her.
Yes, R56, something like that. I know the distinctions are glossed over by most but I see value in Lykken's approach, among others. It may be, too, that I focus on expression overmuch, but I see links between the two disorders and how they play out behaviorally.
I've wondered about Courtney Love, but I don't know much about her background - some of these people almost seem to have "acquired psychopathology" and I didn't know what her full story was. Meaning how much was related to the drug use.

There is a gross misunderstanding of personality disorders on here and in the general public. And a particular confusion between Narcissism and Sociopathology. The DSM-IV itself has been recently revised to reflect a change in how personality disorder and psychopathology is viewed.
Here are three important things to keep in mind:
1. A personality disorder is just the psychological term for "asshole".
2. Think of guilt as a line from A to B. A being too much guilt, and B being to little. Neurotics would be on the left near point A, and Psychopaths would be farthest to the right near B. With Narcissistic Personality Disorder somewhere much closer to B than A.
3. All anti social types of personality disorders are defined by a pathological inability to feel guilt or empathy. In the case of the psychopath it is not merely pathological, it is neurological. They are literally wired differently than the rest of us with inferior function in the hemispheres controlling conscientiousness.
Now, narcissism is basically a slavish adherence to appearances, self centeredness, grandiosity, lack of empathy, and other traits. Most if not all personality disorders have aspects of narcissism in them, some are more hopeless than others. All psychopaths have narcissistic traits, but some more than others. But narcissists aren't psychopaths.
Some of the people listed are addicts like Lohan, emotionally dead children of of a mother who is a Narcissist and "emotional vampire" like the Kardashians, or actual Narcissists like Kim Kardashian, her mother, or Tom Cruise. Charlie Sheen suffers/suffered from hypo mania, a situational form of bi-polar disorder. Some people listed are just people that bother us.
Narcissists are easiest found in Hollywood or Politics or anywhere fame is given without merit. Hence the only study on narcissism revealing that Reality Show contestants, especially females, are off the charts. Psychopaths are found in Wall Street, behind the scenes of politics and religion unfortunately.
A study was recently done that showed that there was a higher percentage of psychopathic personalities in CEO's than prison inmates. That is the alarming irony. In this celebrity obsessed culture we focus on narcissists, damaged addicts and sometimes just mild jerks. When the inmates are truly running the asylum of capitalism. Hence the financial crisis.
So. A more genuine list is :
Angelo Mozillo (financial crisis)
Dick Fuld (financial Crisis)
Fred Phelps (Westboro Baptist Church aka "God Hates Fags" Etc)
Senator Mitch McConnell
Ayn Rand (writer)
L. Ron Hubbard (writer)
I'd say, for the money. You can't do any better than Grover Norquist or Rupert Murdoch for examples of how much damage a sociopath can do behind the scenes.
Ingrid Newkirk (P.E.T.A.)
Bill O Reilly (Malignant Narcissist)

R59 - Jennifer Jason Leigh is the most random choice ever for a celebrity psychopath. She played a convincing nutjob in Single White Female and is known to be very quiet, private, keeps to herself on film sets, no reported tantrums or meltdowns since she started working in the early 80s. Tom Cruise, Courtney Love, Halle Berry, Mel Gibson... those are celebrity psychopaths, not JJL.

If you've ever met a psychopath, you know it's something completely different than narcissistic personality or bipolar disorder. You can tell right away there's something seriously wrong with them. Narcissists and bipolar people tend to be selfish and inconsiderate of others, but they come across as more or less normal most of the time. Psychopaths are much, much more reckless, impulsive and dangerous. They are actively destructive and have no conscience or empathy whatsoever.

As many have said people don't seem to understand the definition of a sociopath. Here are the criteria:
Glibness and superficial charm Manipulative and conning Grandiose sense of self Pathological lying Lack of remorse, shame or guilt Shallow emotions Incapacity for love Need for stimulation lack of empathy Poor impulse control Early behavior problems Criminal versatility Promiscuous sexual behavior Irresponsibility
Ted Bundy is a good example. He fooled a lot of people. Men and women both liked him. I can't think of any celebrities who fit the criteria.

But, R113, even experts disagree as to what constitutes a psychopath or a sociopath, etc.
Sometimes all one can do is kind of "throw around terms." Even those who work in social science fields. Hell, the DSM is most useful for insurance purposes, not because behavioral health issues are so compartmentalized and consistent.

Omarosa is a psychopath.
Donald Trump is more of a textbook Narcissist.
DT keeps Omarosa around because they both feed off of the drama. She's too crazy-stupid to figure out Trump is exploiting her for ratings. Trump enjoys watching the drama she creates, just like any other narcissist. So, really, why would he get rid of her like any normal person would have done right after the first show aired. Trump is one sick pup.
Omarosa also fabricated the story about getting married to Michael Clarke Duncan. There wasn't going to be any wedding. Prior to his death he was going to end what very little they had together, but intensely feared her repercussions. She made that relationship out to be much more than it really was. But then, ... ALL socios/psychos/narcs are pathological liars.
Joe Guidice on that mindless, idiotic RHONJ Reality Show is a psychopath, and his wife Theresa Gorga-Guidice is a narcissist.
Ramona Singer on RHO of NY is a textbook psychopath. Her sycophant hubby goes along with her for the prestige, sex, fame, money.
Joan Rivers is a fame-whore narcissist who feeds of off her daughter Melissa's positive energy ...like a typical emotional vampire.
Joan does some outrageous and nasty things to Melissa and has no respect for her daughters feelings or privacy - none. If it weren't for Joan's $$$fortune$$$, Melissa would have estranged herself from Joan long ago.
IMO, Melissa Rivers is both a sycophant and a co-dependent (redundant?) to her NPD mother, Joan. She's agitated and depleted, instead of upbeat and energized, whenever her crazy, life-sucking, energy-draining mother Joan is around her.
And, next, Larry Ellison (Oracle Corp) classic narcissist.

Joe Jackson is one of the world's worst, I'd say 'Top 10 Psychopaths', who should be in prison or on death-row.
Joe allowed four powerful showbiz men, who promised him big favors in return, to go ahead and have 'their way' with Michael, meaning rape Michael. He was 7 years old.
This occurred in a hotel room where they were staying when MJ and Joe were on the road, and he was 'up and coming', very early in his career.
MJ said he didn't understand why his dad was coaxing him into a hotel room with these four strange men and then left him alone with them.
He said he sensed something wasn't right and was scared and then found out after the door closed and locked. He was violently raped while Joe was relaxing in the next Hotel room. That story made me cry.
MJ had openly talked about this trauma in the 1990's, and then one of his sisters openly mentioned this crime a few years later. So, I doubt it's a vicious rumor. They also said that Joe had molested them and then lied.
Who would allow a child rape to occur?
And, what kind of a father arranges his little boy's sexual assault and rape? ... especially by 4 men in a hotel room in exchange for a few showbiz favors. Perhaps a psychopath.

Do you people know what a psychopath is? Someone on here said something to the effect "If he's a psychopath, how does he keep winning oscars?" this is the stupid question I've ever heard. Not all psychopaths are axe murders; many are highly intelligent, charming, glib, manipulative, practical, pragmatic and logical. I happen to be a psychopath, and I'm not an axe murder who goes into fully psychotic rages. Do your research people before you go labeling others.

Julia Roberts. She made threats to hurt people who dated someone she never met. Ouch. She is a sociopath. I almost called LAPD on her. Charlie Path. That man is nuts.
Mel Gibson. My mom is afraid of him. I am too. Everyone in Hollywood is a sociopath. Steven Speilburg, Carrie Fisher. Crazy

How does Gibson get work?

OK. OK. Since people are coming up with more and more ridiculous suggestions for psychopaths, I'm going to say Julie Andrews. Her performance in "The Sound of Music" had psychopath written all over it.

It's a well known synonym for empathy, R155?

SO glad to see this bumped, with the revelations of Bill Cosby's startling psychopathology coming out.

"I would think psychopaths would be more likely to go into the business end of the performing arts rather than the actual performing end, since they're more interested in fraud, embezzling, etc. than in having a whole lot of attention paid to them."
This is rank speculation. No such individual could exist in the industry. Or, if such a person did exist, they would certainly not be in any responsible position.

Dersh isn't a psychopath, nor is he a sociopath. He's a bit of an egomaniac and has a touch of narcissism but not much more than the average highly successful person.
You should pay more attention to the comment upthread noting that "personality disorder" is a psychological term for hopeless asshole. That's what most of the people mentioned in this thread actually are, along with a number of narcissists.

It's true, performing has tremendous appeal to people with narcissistic personality disorder, less for psychopaths. But a famous performer can get away with anything, even decades of rapes, and the lack of conscience is a huge advantage when building a career.

There are psychopaths and sociopaths in EVERY field. From retail queens to the top of every industry.
Of all the industries, the financial industry has the greatest concentration of sociopaths psychopaths and personality disordered people. Wall Street is a fucking loony bin with money.
Close second are psychiatrists and surgeons followed by teachers and nurses.
Actors and Hollywood power players come in third.

I used to be married to a doctor, and when he was in medical school, the ones who went into psychiatry were the most f*cked up themselves. One was a woman who was still fending off inappropriate behavior from her father. Part of her training required being in analysis herself for six months and she never mentioned it in analysis. Another guy was so obviously closeted, as you say, purses flew from his mouth every time he opened it. He was engaged (to a woman) when we knew him. He became a shrink too.

So, not even a grunt or a nod toward the atomic bomb that R133 dropped? Even if it isn't true - the fact that it's plausible is jolting enough.

R165, those rumors about Michael and Joe Jackson and the music industry bigwigs have been around for years. In some versions, Joe raped little Michael himself, as well as some of the daughters. So yes, I think it's highly likely that Joe Jackson was... IS a sociopath.
And he may not be the only one in the family. Leaving out Michael's issues, there are also old rumors that one or more of the older brothers fucked Michael, as a way of maintaining their dominance over a little brother who was the big star of the act. There's also the more recent rumor that one or more of the Jackson brothers was trying to get it on with Paris Jackson, as a way of getting control over her and her money. Last I heard, she was desperate to get away from those creeps and live with her mother, and I hope that's where she is now. I mean her mother's an awful human being, but she won't rape the girl.
