Back Up! Celebrities Who Are Not Nice in Person

Most of these celebrities are absolute masters of their artistic domains, but they don’t suffer fools and stupid questions lightly. Some cannot truly express themselves except when they are on stage. Others are grizzled from years or decades of dealing with Hollywood hijinks. A few celebrities’ personalities were sculpted and molded from the concrete jungles of America and are always on guard. Others are just prima donnas who put on a face with the public but are downright rude when the TV cameras go off.

Just be aware that the idol you may admire, or even worship, may not be the humanitarian or darling you envisioned. This will prevent you from getting your feelings and ego trampled on or getting in the cross-hairs of a celeb who doesn’t like people in their space.

Here are the celebrities who are not nice.

1. Spike Lee (below):

We are pretty much aware by now of what Spike Lee’s views are about “buffoonery” and “coonery,” which fellow director’s work he abhors intensely, how he feels about Morgan Freeman in Driving Miss Daisy, Samuel L. Jackson’s gratuitous use of the N-word in Pulp Fiction, Hollywood’s dastardly behavior, etc., etc. He is the embodiment of a cranky genius. Then again, I’ve listened to many of the questions that fellow “reporters” spit at him and half the time I don’t blame him for repelling the inquirer with a stream of verbal fire.

I'm a lover of words, pictures, people and The Ohio State Buckeyes. A true journalist from the soul.

    This is a ridiculous story.  Celebrates are humans with families and inner circle of friends.  They have EVERY right to demand their privacy when they are involved in family/friend time and not working.  If a reporter/fan/photographer tries to talk to them and or nap a picture while they are doing non-work related stuff with family/fiend then they deserve to be cussed out. You can disrespect someone then get mad when they disrespect you.

      I can understand them being rude to photographers and journalists who pester them day and night but I would like to think my favorite celebrity would be reasonably polite if I approached them with humility. I do think they owe a lot to their fans and should be grateful for that. Of course, that doesn’t mean I would walk up to Denzel in the middle of dinner with his family and start talking about his last film. I met David Bowie once, I had heard bad things about him and he was actually really nice so I think a lot does depend on the day or situation.

    so you are telling me because Denzel Washington won’t let people invade his privacy and that he won’t stop playing catch with his son to talk to some journalist that he is a not so nice person? are you effing kidding me? this is ridiculous, just because they are famous and rich doesn’t mean they aren’t human. Donald Trump, Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, Lindsey Lohan, Courtney Love, Madonna, Sean Penn, etc. all deserve to be on this list.

      Yeah I myself always thought two things when it comes down to meeting celebrities in person:1. No interrupting when they are with their family or eating. 2. Just because they look nice or mean-like say Danny Trejo-on tv does not mean you know them. Many celebrities are very different in person to what they portray to be otherwise.

    Look, no offense but that entry on Denzel summed up into “BAWW, he won’t let me invade his personal life, and is mean cuz iz not allowed to stalk his kid! Baww! He is bad persun, and is stoopid and shud DIE! … In fact, now that I think about it, a lot of these entries on the internet can be summed up that way -_-

      Well, if you speak as poorly as you type I could see a lot of problems with you approaching anyone, famous or not : < (

      So you think people who support war supporters…aka Republikan’ts, are geniuses? And why do we have to bring politics to everything?
