Amy is near the top in my opinion. Drug addicts in general don't qualify automatically. Whitney didn't have to end where she did. She wasn't mentally ill or lacking in confidence. She fell in with a bad drug and a great deal of pressure in life. Her unfathomable talent was a burden all it's own. Not unlike Garland maybe, but Judy was troubled by mental illness and a long life of instability and self sabotage. Whitney had it all. If anything she had too much success, money and too many enablers.

Kurt Cobain and Amy were troubled from the start. So talented and so fundamentally depressed and destructive. Sad people who were never at home in their own being. Life long depression pretty much always wins out. Depends on how soon you start self medicating it.

Sometimes the trouble is circumstantial. Like the fallen stars who did nothing much wrong, but gave into despair and most often alcohol.

I would say that Rita Hayworth had one of the saddest lives I've ever read about or studied. A victim of every man who ever can near her. Starting with her father. She wasn't fundamentally a sad person. Men took her down and time and age and illness did the rest.

There are regular old dumpster fire human beings like Charlie Sheen and Phil Spector. But they are more sociopathic than troubled.

R31 Whitney Houston could had simply gave a big "Fuck You" to the public and everyone around her then went on to have a happy wealthy life with her beloved daughter. Too bad she never had the courage to do that. She always did what people ask her to do because she thought she had to. And those told her what to do just wanted money from her. Just sad when everyone surrounding you are vultures.

And the saddest part is, after she died, her friends and people that knows her well only have nice words to say about her. The few bad people in her life ruins her, and continue to rip off her after her death.

Regarding Errol Flynn, from friend Alexis Smith...

[quote] On Flynn’s being diagnosed with a mild heart attack during “Gentleman Jim” (1942): “She pulled him aside and said kindly but firmly: ‘It’s so silly, working all day and then playing all night and dissipating yourself. Don’t you want to live a long life?’ Errol was his usual apparently unconcerned self: ‘I’m only interested in this half,’ he told her, ‘I don’t care for the future.’”

Courtney Love. How did this ugly, insane creature ever become a "star" in the first place? I guess because of sheer pathological determination and being in the right place at the right time. Where else could somebody like her become famous except in the grunge/punk era? And of course she bullied Kurt Cobain, who had genuine talent, into marrying her. She had a knack for glomming onto talented people and getting them to "help" her create her songs, which she took credit for. At any rate, she has always seemed absolutely psychotic.

VANITY, really messed up girl. AND a tragic life. On the surface she was a slutty chick - money grubbing fame hungry bitch too. So many of the women on this thread were surely messed with in early life. Fame and access exacerbated their problems and gave them an outlet to feel good- for a while.

But that shit haunts most women forever and the combination of narcissism and denial some adopt are deadly as they age. Men suffer from this too, but their destruction usually reaches outward.

VANITY was a very sweet girl, my brother knew her well. But the things she did to climb the ladder or later just to stay high, were pretty brazen and disgusting. She wasn't subtle about it. Troubled.

Margaret Sullavan. Widely praised as an actress, gushed over as a totally enchanting, "unique" woman, she was incredibly messed up emotionally. She was married four times, to prominent men (Henry Fonda, William Wyler, Leland Hayward). She claimed to "loathe" acting; then why in hell did she become an actress? Two of her children rejected her to go live with their father, which devastated her. Her last husband was a nice man who adored her but her mental condition worsened and it didn't help that she was going deaf. She died of an overdose of barbiturates; it's surmised she probably committed suicide. She daughter, Brooke Hayward, wrote a good book about her family called "Haywire." She's said that her mother may well have been happier staying in her native Virginia and being a schoolteacher rather than a Hollywood star.

Jessica Savitch, the news anchor. She was a coke addict and very emotionally disturbed. She had two disastrous marriages. One of her husbands committed suicide. She blew her career by stumbling over her word during a newscast, seemingly on drugs. She died in a freak accident. Her date drove their car into a canal; he wasn't drunk or stoned, it was just an accident. Both of them drowned, trapped in the car. Her dog, which was in the car too, died with her. Her dog was probably her closest lifetime companion. She was 36 when she died.

Pete Duel. For some bizarre reason, I dreamt of him recently. He was so handsome and so talented; he could do both comedy and drama equally well. He became a star in the tv series "Alias Smith and Jones"; he played his tv character Hannibal Heyes with a charming, relaxed persona. He was a young, good looking, successful actor...and he was absolutely tortured. He had epilepsy which caused him to have seizures. He became an alcoholic and while driving drunk caused an accident where a young woman was seriously injured. The state of the world depressed him; he was deeply concerned about social issues, especially the environment. His tv series was a success but he didn't like the grind of being on a weekly tv series and though he was wasting his talent. Basically, he was unhappy about pretty much everything. He had been going to AA and trying to stop drinking but on December 31, 1971 he got blind drunk and started playing with a loaded gun. He shot himself in the head and was dead at 31. His death was such a tragedy. He had everything, looks, talent, success, but it didn't matter. By all account, he was a well-liked, good hearted but deeply troubled man.

In 1984, Rose purchased a holiday home in Sosúa, Dominican Republic, where he spent much of his time between his performances. Rose was gay and had no immediate family or permanent partner. He reportedly longed to have an heir. Shortly after moving, he took in a 14-year-old boy whom he supported financially and to whom he planned to leave his estate. He adopted the boy in January 1988.

On 5 May 1988, during a two-week hiatus from the national tour of Drood, Rose was tortured and beaten to death by his adopted son, the boy's biological father,  an uncle, and a friend of the father. The assailants tried to make the death look like a car accident, but soon confessed to killing Rose. Though all four men were charged and spent time in prison, no trial was ever held, and eventually all were released.

Rose is buried in an unmarked grave in a cemetery near his holiday home in Sosúa

Huge success in the band, huge potential, beautiful voice, beautiful face, vast fandom but also a hardcore junkie and is to this day. He's cancelled tours, shoots for brands he was the face of, TV shows, radio interviews. Notorious for smoking weed in interviews with the NME and others, and then walking out before the interview was over.

Nowadays he barely has a career. No interview of any kind since 2018. He hasn't stepped on a stage to sing since 2016. He dropped a single last month and refused to promote it so it sank like a stone. Wasted in more ways than one.

by Anonymousreply 15211/21/2020

Silent film stars Jack Pickford and Olive Thomas. He was the brother of Mary PIckford; she was a Ziegfeld Follies girl who became a film star with an All American girl image. They married and their image was that of a wholesome young couple in love. But they were both promiscuous and hard core drinkers, partiers, and druggies. Thomas died mysteriously and horribly at age 25 by ingesting mercury bichloride, a topical medication that had been prescribed to Pickford to treat sores caused by his chronic syphilis. It has never been fully explained how she could have mercury bichloride by mistake and it was rumored she took it on purpose to commit suicide. Jack Pickford died 13 years later at age 36, of alcoholism. They were both truly doomed by their excesses.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
