Some celebrities are known to have inflated egos, or just overall less patience than we do. There have been many celebrity outbursts from some of our most beloved actors, singers and entertainers, whether provoked or unprovoked – and a lot of them have been caught on tape. Whether during an interview, in a public forum or just secretly caught on tape, we have compiled a list of the bizarre tantrums thrown by celebrities in the heat of the moment. Whether it’s a celebrity who’s a noted bad-boy or someone who completely took us off guard, these celebs managed to make headlines at one point in time for something they were overly passionate about – and didn’t let anyone forget it. Unfortunately for them, these tantrums will live on forever thanks to the internet, so sit back and enjoy reliving these outbursts from people like Christian Bale, Kanye West, Alec Baldwin and more.
5. Kanye West interrupts Taylor Swift
Kanye West’s outburst at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2009 has certainly made its mark in history of the most bizarre tantrums anyone has ever displayed in a public forum. West was very passionate about the fact that Beyonce should’ve won the award Swift won and made sure the world knew it. He later admitted to being intoxicated and has said very recently that that’s the last thing he would want to happen to his own daughter, baby North West.
4. Christian Bale
Also in 2009, an audio tape of Christian Bale’s freak out on crew members stunned everyone who heard it. In it, he’s heard throwing an epic tantrum on the set of Terminator Salvation, when a crew member walks through the scene he was shooting and ruins it.
He’s now a proud new father to new baby girl Carmen Gabriela with wife Hilaria, but back in 2007, Baldwin’s temper got the best of him when a voicemail he left for his then-11 year old daughter Ireland with ex-wife Kim Basingner was leaked. In the voicemail, he’s heard calling Basinger a “thoughtless pain in the a—“ and told Ireland she’s a “rude little pig.”
In just one of the public tantrums Spears had during her lowest point in her meltdown before her father got a conservatorship over her, Spears is seen smashing in the windows of a paparazzo’s car using an umbrella. The now famous pictures show a nearly bald Spears in a rage of anger just outside of her ex, Kevin Federline’s apartment, after they were reportedly discussing custody arrangements for their two sons.
In 2011, after a string of incidents that saw him getting fired from his show Two and a Half Men and a few hospital visits after all night partying, Sheen gave the interview heard around the world to ABC News, in which he says he’s “winning” and he’s “a bitchin’ rock star from Mars.” In the erratic interview, he’s smoking a cigarette and looks strung out.
1. Amanda Bynes
The downward spiral of beloved Nickelodeon star Amanda Bynes might’ve been the most shocking of all, considering her squeaky clean image and successful career. She started out wearing wigs and showing erratic behavior, then after months of bizarre Twitter activity, she pulled the last straw when setting a fire in her neighbor’s driveway. She’s been in a psychiatric hospital under a 5150 hold since July 22.
