Stars who resort to violence

Sean Penn, first and foremost. Not only infamous for punching out paparazzi, but also beat his first wife (and many claim his second).

Chris Brown. Beat Rihanna, and then threw a chair out the window when he was cofnronted with beating Rihanna.

Russell Crowe. Used to pick fistfights (which he usually lost) in bars; infamously flung a cellphone a a hotel clerk, for which he had to settle out of court for six figures.

Naomi Campbell. Flings things at the help when they incur her wrath.

Who else?

Sometimes the bitch is going to tell the press you blew Chris Walken, and you've got to teach her a lesson. Leave her out there awhile Captain, she's fine.

"infamously flung a cellphone a a hotel clerk"

It wasn't a cellphone, it was a landline phone.

R17, this was a different event. The cellphone was a hotel clerk. They have them now in the best NYC hotels.

Does Michael Fassbender count? There was that thing with his ex... allegedly he burst one of her ovarian cysts but the charges ended up being dropped.

by Anonymousreply 2009/24/2013

I hate to defend Russell Crowe BUT

He throw the phone and it bounced off a counter and hit the clerk. If he threw it directly at the clerk it would have been prison worthy.

"The cellphone was a hotel clerk."

Fascinating anthropomorphization.

by Anonymousreply 2209/24/2013

You're not really "defending Russell" Crowe, r21. Even if he didn't throw it directly at the clerk, his violence was still enough that he was arrested and had to do a perp walk in front of photographers; and he also had to pay the clerk a substantial sum not to sue him.

I'm sure there's a lot of stuff that would curl your hair if it got out, but many stars' violent episodes are carefully cleaned up and swept under the carpet.

Why wouldn't Michael Fassbender count R20? He's just lucky he's still not widely known or that would've made a bigger splash in the entertainment news. Then again, Sean Penn has been getting away with it for years just because he can "ACT!"

maybe she lied about Fassie. dropped charges signify some strangeness there. maybe he's never beat on a woman!

Terrence Howard thinks women are punching bags.

Per Wikipedia:

In February 2009, it was reported on The Smoking Gun that Howard was arrested in 2001 for a variety of charges related to a violent attack on his estranged wife, including simple assault, terrorist threats, harassment and stalking. According to police reports, he arrived at her house after an argument on the phone, forced entry into her home by breaking in doors, and chased her into the back yard where he punched her twice in the face with a closed fist. The violent attack ended when Howard's brother stopped it. In 2002 he pleaded guilty to disturbing the peace.

These issues came to light after he reportedly downplayed singer Chris Brown's 2009 arrest for attacking his girlfriend Rihanna. When Howard was asked about the allegations of domestic violence against Brown, he told a reporter from Hollywood.TV "It's just life, man. Chris is a great guy. He'll be all right, and Rihanna knows he loves her, you know? They'll be all right."

According to The Smoking Gun, Howard was also arrested for assaulting a Continental Airlines flight attendant after refusing her request to return to his seat because the seat belt sign was on.

According to Philadelphia magazine, Howard punched a woman in a Pennsylvania diner in 2005 and was charged with simple assault and harassment. Those charges were later withdrawn, and Howard plead guilty to disorderly conduct. In 2012, an ex-girlfriend of Howard accused him of punching and kicking her at his home. No charges were filed against Howard, but charges were filed against the ex-girlfriend. These charges were later withdrawn, and according to a lawsuit filed in Philadelphia, Howard paid the woman $75,000 to sign a non-disclosure agreement about the incident at his home. In August 2013, Howard's second ex-wife, Michelle Ghent, obtained a restraining order against him after showing up in court with a black eye she says he gave her. Howard has denied hitting her.

Naomi's not the only one with a violent streak: Glenn Campbell beat Tanya Tucker. Of course, now it's all forgotten.

by Anonymousreply 3509/24/2013

R36, EVERYONE beat Tanya Tucker.

My cousin's friend who was a stylist to ALL the major Nashville stars said he once witnessed Tanya's friends - Brenda Lee, Little Richard, and Burt Reynolds - line up to smack her in the gut with a bag of nectarines.

Tanya loved what she called "The shaved peach routine."

Sean Connery advocated it.

by Anonymousreply 4709/24/2013

It takes an actor to do this. They have to frighten the victim with violence enough to dominate them.

Then, they have to create enough honeymoon and terror cycles to keep the torture fresh.

An older brother pulled this shit. He's been dropped from everyones' lives.

by Anonymousreply 4809/24/2013

Technically, what Anjelica Huston does is not the kind of violence considered here. The use of familiars, occult power and the occasional strong-arm work of minions, however, has done more damage to more people than I could count.

RE: Fassbender

The entire thing was bullshit arranged by Lawrence Bender, Quentin Tarantino's (now former) producer. The ex who accused Fassbender was Bender's former on/off mistress and the mother of his child. He basically coerced her into making those accusations in exchange for taking her back. She's a former "erotic" model/actress with no job skills to speak of.

by Anonymousreply 5009/30/2013

But she got back with Fassbender afterwards and dropped the charges.

by Anonymousreply 5109/30/2013

Jack Nicklaus also advocated it, but I don't know if he actually beat his wife.

by Anonymousreply 5209/30/2013

No, she didn't get back with Fassbender after the charges. She was literally photographed with Lawrence Bender at a pre-Golden Globes party TWO DAYS before the gossip about them supposedly hooking up was reported. You really think she dumped her multi-millionaire producer boyfriend TWICE for Fassbender. That was a classic media hack job. And she or Bender has an in with someone who works at the New York Daily News, which has published three fake stories about this whole debacle.
