Classic Film Stars Who Were Actually Really Weird People

old-hollywood is synonymous with class sophistication and images of matinee idols chase li stealing kisses on the silver screen in reality though all sorts of bonkers nonsense was going on behind the scenes here’s a look at some classic film stars who were actually really weird people Cary Grant loved LSD in 1960 the editors at Good Housekeeping magazine got a strange call Cary Grant the suave sophisticated film star who almost never gave interviews was on the line and wanted to talk about the magnificent amount of LSD he dropped yep plagued by personal demons grant finally found peace when his third wife introduced him to the wonders of acid which he dropped over a hundred times between 1958 and 1961 and he wanted everyone to experience the same wonderful benefit so he went on a campaign to promote the benefits of LSD which according to the biography Cary Grant a touch of elegance included grant saying things like it releases inhibition you know we are all unconsciously holding our anus in one LSD dream all over the rug and it all over the floor another time I imagine myself as a giant penis launching off from the earth like a spaceship sold I don’t know sir but it looks like a giant dick we have an unidentified flying object Orson Welles hated his nose most people who get nose jobs want to make their nose smaller but legendary writer director and actor Orson Welles was obsessed with making his nose larger he thought his real nose was too small for his round face so in every movie he had a fake nose made and as his career went along those noses got bigger and bigger and bigger when he finished a film Welles kept his noses named them and stored them in his Hollywood home where he would occasionally take them out at parties and perform magic tricks with them that’s the sort of crazy you get away with when you’ve directed the best film ever made Joan Crawford was an egomaniac in one of the most famous cases of a star having a secret weird side Joan Crawford was outed by her adopted daughter Christina as a jealous egomaniac and the infamous memoir Mommy Dearest which was later turned into a hit movie and account of her time is Crawford’s ward it made the Hollywood stars sound like the mother from hell among other tidbits were harrowing descriptions of the physical abuse Crawford occasionally unleashed on her children the revelation that Crawford lied when she told Cristina her birth mother was dead and of course the famous meltdown of her wire hangers some claim the book wasn’t entirely true but considering Crawford was so weird she once sabotaged her own movie in order to spite rival Betty Davis separating truth from fiction is nearly impossible Peter Sellars was afraid of purple the star who gave us dr. Strangelove and Inspector Clouseau wasn’t just a weirdo he was apparently also such a monumental Butthead that few could stand to be around him Peter Sellers would have screaming meltdown tantrum sunset he freaked out at his wives smashed crockery and threatened them with his shotgun he’d even get low-level people fired on movies as a way of venting his frustrations against people like producers and directors who are more powerful than he was he was also profoundly superstitious so when director vittorio de sica told him the color purple represented death Sellars took it way too literally according to the biography mr. Strangelove sellers became convinced the color purple could kill he refused to be in rooms with it and would have screaming tantrums if he came into contact with it Elizabeth Taylor’s spiteful engagements Elizabeth Taylor’s hell-raising is so infamous that her private life was publicly denounced by the Vatican over her lifetime she married eight times had endless affairs and took great pride in the offense she caused sometimes her behavior was truly outrageous after marrying and divorcing Richard Burton twice Taylor was so upset that she got engaged just to spite him while working in the play private lives Taylor and Burton brought out the worst in each other they separately turned up drunk they broke character they skipped performances when Taylor missed a show Burton got fed up went to Vegas and married Sally Hey when Taylor heard the news she was so furious she announced her engagement to Victor Luna upstaging burden not that she hated her ex-husband later in life Taylor claimed they would have married a third time if only Burton hadn’t died Catherine heparan hated nudity the best way to describe Katharine Hepburn is fiercely independent she lived as if married with both women and men all while acting like it was a no big deal part of that though was that she had plausible deniability as according to the book Kate a woman who was Catherine pepperin the famed actress not only didn’t like physical intimacy she hated nudity to the point where she would walk out on a film if there was a scene showing someone naked so why did heparin loathe nudity and physical romance so much according to a college friend she tried intercourse once and quote just didn’t like it fair enough Clark Gable was obsessed with cleanliness they say that cleanliness is next to godliness but matinee idol Clark Gable took it to a whole new level according to Warren G Harris’s biography of gable the star shaved his chest and armpits because he didn’t like sweating he also didn’t like bass because it meant soaking in your own dirty water so he always showered even carrying his own portable shower around with him when he was in the army considering his obsession with hygiene it’s ironic that Gables Gone with the Wind co-star Vivien Leigh later publicly called him out for having bad breath still no matter what people said about his weird ways he always had the perfect comeback frankly I don’t give a damn thanks for watching click the grunge icon to subscribe to our youtube channel let’s check out all this cool stuff we know you’ll love to
