Hollywood’s Most Arrogant Celebrities


In Hollywood, a little bit of self-confidence
goes a long way, and a lot of it goes even further. An overly robust ego is practically a job
requirement in the wayward world of showbiz, and the industry is crawling with stars who
could benefit from a generous slice of humble pie (or two). Or maybe even the whole pie. Many Hollywood stars possess levels of arrogance
that border on the pathological, and examples are never too hard to come by. So, without further ado, here are our nominees
for Hollywood’s Most Arrogant Celebrities. It is humbling, no? ​Gwyneth Paltrow In 2004, Gwyneth Paltrow earned a side-eye
from basically the whole world when she went on record with Vanity Fair as saying, “I’m really f—ing good at my job and people
who are interesting and good know that; and that’s all that matters.” The Shakespeare in Love actress definitely
didn’t stop there. She’s notorious for spouting out hysterically
haughty quotes. Some of her greatest hits include: “Sometimes Harvey Weinstein will let me use
the Miramax jet if I’m opening a supermarket for him.” …or telling Elle UK, “I am who I am; I can’t pretend to be somebody
who makes $25,000 a year.” …or telling Jonathan Ross, “I’d rather smoke crack than eat cheese from
a tin.” Her excessive ego-tripping hasn’t gone unnoticed
by anyone, earning her top honors in a 2013 “Most Hated Celebrity” list published in Star
magazine. Asked why she thought she’d won this dubious
distinction, Paltrow told BBC World News, “There’s a perception that I grew up very
wealthy and that I was given, that I was sort of raised with a silver spoon in my mouth.” It didn’t make her more modest, and in 2014
she didn’t win hearts when she suggested Hollywood actress moms have it harder than most working
moms. She told E! News, “I think to have a regular job and be a mom
is not as [difficult], of course there are challenges, but it’s not like being on set.” It’s rough being Gwyneth. Faye Dunaway If almost everyone she’s ever worked with
is to be believed, actress Faye Dunaway is an absolute frightmare on and off set. She reportedly channels the spirit of her
most famous role a lot. And as a real-life version of Bonnie and Clyde’s
Bonnie Parker, she’s known to berate service industry employees on the regular, allegedly
believing she’s entitled to special treatment as a matter of principle. In fact, an anonymous airline stewardess told
the New York Post Dunaway made a scene at JFK airport when she was refused an upgrade,
saying, “She was […] screaming at everyone and saying,
“Don’t you know who I am?”” While filming Chinatown, the actress once
reportedly threw a cup of urine on director Roman Polanski because he wouldn’t let her
use the restroom. Is it true? No one knows, because asking about it brought
about the fiery end of Xan Brooks’s interview for The Guardian. Dunaway’s response was, “I am a lady and you were completely insulting.” Polanski, for his part, went on record as
saying she, quote, “demonstrated certifiable proof of insanity.” Insiders say Dunaway was nothing short of
demonic on the set of Mommie Dearest, that her erratic behavior caused movie staffers
to quit, and there’s a list of topics that shouldn’t be mentioned in her presence. “… this closet when I told you no wire hangers
EVER!” Sounds like Dunaway hasn’t exactly mellowed
over the years, either, regularly making headlines for continuing her tirade against photographers,
journalists, and anyone else who she perceives as disrespecting her. Or merely existing. ​Miles Teller There are many ways to earn the internet’s
wrath, but actor Miles Teller found a particularly special one. While being interviewed for Esquire in 2015
at Atlanta’s Luminary restaurant, the Fantastic Four actor told journalist Anna Peele that
the highball glass was modeled after his manly business. Then he allegedly tried the same material
on the waitress. It’s just one unsettling morsel in a feature
full of them. At one point, she quotes Teller as saying: “I was thinking about […] how I probably
think I’m better-looking than the public thinks I am.” Beyond that infamous Esquire feature, which
Teller claimed was “very misrepresenting”, the actor has demonstrated a robust sense
of self-worth on plenty of other occasions. In addition to sending angry texts to the
powers-that-be when they pass him over for starring roles, he’s also fond of trash-talking
his own films. He told W in 2014 that he complained to his
agent Divergent “sucks” and left him “feeling dead inside”, then offered the disclaimer
that he only starred in the film for “business reasons.” Meanwhile, while discussing his industry peers,
he told The New York Times in 2014, “I feel like a lot of actors of my generation
are not proper actors.” A bold statement, for sure, but not even as
bold as his comments about his heroism. “You, you, this is unbelievable. How did you…” “I thought that’s why you had me on here. Movie aside, I thought you were honoring heroes
this week.” Catherine Zeta-Jones A certain Ocean’s Twelve star is fed up, and
you should know that Catherine Zeta-Jones won’t let you shame her for being both filthy
rich and distractingly beautiful. She made that clear to The Mirror readers
in June 2018: should you ever be inclined to scorn her for marrying Michael Douglas
and living the high life, she’s simply not going to take it. “One thing I’m not is humble anymore. I’m sick of being humble. I really am. ‘So sorry I’m rich, so sorry I’m married to
a movie star, so sorry I’m not so bad looking.’ No sorrys. Enough.” Zeta-Jones regularly sings her own praises
and brags about her wealth, once boasting, quote, “A million dollars isn’t a lot of money for
people like us.” Well then. She’s also super proud of the fact that she
collects high-end treasures like some people collect baseball cards, once quoted as saying, “Some people collect art or lots of money. We collect houses because if we have to look
at something, we prefer the view.” Still, life is not without its challenges. She shared a story with The Daily Mail in
2008 about the difficulties of multiple mansion ownership, saying, “The worst thing about having all these houses
is that when I have an outfit and I think it’s going to look great with a certain pair
of shoes, I remember they’re in […] some place I’m not. So that’s why I have to buy duplicates.” ​James Cameron If you ever bump into director James Cameron
at an airport, you may want to duck. In 2009, he was caught telling a fan to shove
off, but those who know him say he’s an equal opportunity hater, with scorn that isn’t reserved
just for the fans. Actor Josh Brolin claims the hotheaded director
lashed out at him when he turned down a role in Avatar, telling Esquire, “James Cameron’s f——g calling me this
name and that name. Whatever.” After selling scripts for Aliens, Rambo, and
Terminator within a matter of months, Cameron allegedly proclaimed he was extraordinarily
proud he hadn’t paid for his own lunch in weeks. And, in case you’re wondering, he’s also been
quoted as saying he doesn’t even bother reading scripts that he didn’t write himself. Then, there’s his reaction to winning the
Best Director Academy Award for Titanic in 1998: “I’m the king of the world, whoo!” His ego was still a thing of wonderment in
2010. After snagging a Best Drama Golden Globe for
Avatar, he told a roomful of Hollywood bigwigs to applaud themselves for having the best
job in the world. And finally, let’s meditate on that notorious
press junket interview for Avatar’s DVD release, when Cameron suggested he wanted to save us
all from ourselves, saying, “At this point I’m less interested in making
money for the movie and more interested in saving the world that my children are going
to inhabit.” Shannen Doherty According to former Beverly Hills, 90210 heartthrob
Jason Priestley, on-screen sister Shannen Doherty could be a shambling nightmare while
making the series. In his 2014 book Jason Priestley: A Memoir,
the actor claimed Doherty’s arrogance became very obvious very quickly, thanks to a 1990
trip to New York City organized last-minute by Fox. She apparently had issues with the automobile
that took her to the airport, snippily asking a publicist: “Really? A town car? You send a town car to take me to the airport,
not a limo?” Priestley claims Doherty spent the trip “[…] complaining about the short notice
and the food on board and the temperature in the cabin and everything else.” Doherty has denied at least the limo part,
later saying she doesn’t even like limos. Not really. Priestley wasn’t the only one talking about
Doherty’s insufferable divadom. According to her book Deep Thoughts From a
Hollywood Blonde, co-star Jennie Garth got along with Doherty, quote, “like gasoline
and a match.” At one point, she was allegedly so fed up
with Doherty’s bad attitude that the two almost came to blows, but Doherty tends to chalk
it all up to completely normal female interactions. “I think when you stick three girls together,
three girls who are all attractive, I think there tends to be a little bit of drama, you
know…” If the rumors are true, Doherty’s self-entitlement
might have ultimately gotten her kicked off the show. Producer and writer Larry Mollin told Entertainment
Weekly that Doherty didn’t ask permission before getting a haircut, so her brand-new
‘do wound up destroying the continuity of the Season 4 finale. Katherine Heigl If actress Katherine Heigl can brag about
anything, it’s a knack for drumming up boatloads of bad press. A casual Google-stalk draws up pages of articles
dedicated solely to expressing hatred for the actress, who’s often accused of creating
difficulties for her coworkers. After working with the actress on Grey’s Anatomy,
Shonda Rhimes now uses “Heigl” as shorthand for “troublesome talent,” telling The Hollywood
Reporter, “There are no Heigls in this situation. […] I don’t put up with bulls–t or nasty
people. I don’t have time for it.” Heigl’s bad reputation stems largely from
her decision to decline a second Emmy nomination for Grey’s Anatomy in 2008. As she said in a public statement, “I did not feel I was given the material this
season to warrant an Emmy nomination and in an effort to maintain the integrity of the
academy organization, I withdrew my name from contention.” Page Six reports Heigl will occasionally disparage
her own films, saying of Knocked Up, quote, “it was hard for me to love the movie.” Her comments were so hurtful they prompted
an official response from costar Seth Rogen, who said he didn’t hold anything against her
in spite of feeling betrayed by her words. In 2010, she acknowledged that she may have
something of an image problem but she wasn’t about to apologize for it, telling Meredith
Vieira, “I am a strong woman and I’m not going to
apologize for that. And I’m not going to, on behalf of my daughters.” Kanye West Dissecting Kanye West’s arrogance could swallow
your afternoon whole, especially considering many publications have devoted entire features
to the cataloging of his ego alone. After all, this is a man who was once photographed
for Rolling Stone dressed in a crown of thorns and decorated with buckets of stage blood. If that doesn’t say ego, nothing does. No one can forget West drunkenly interrupting
Taylor Swift at the Video Music Awards during her acceptance speech for Best Female Video. But we also shouldn’t forget the time he threw
a temper tantrum after a music critic gave his tour a B+, the time he showed off his
wife by posting nude pics of her on social media. And yet there’s some hope for all of us. In June 2018, West took to Twitter to announce
that he’d “killed” his ego. In another tweet, he revealed, “I thought
my ego protected me from doubters.” Well, as fate would have it, plenty of people
are somehow doubting there’s any credence whatsoever to these claims.

    So, wonder what Heigl will do for a living now that she has caused her own downfall. The only thing I've seen her do is a commercial on TV…

    I will get attacked but I think Selena Gomez had to be in this list. She has a cute face which is fooling you, she's constantly annoyed and passive aggressive. I never saw her being just calm and genuinely sweet in personality.

    I have heard that Kanye West has been caught masturbating to his selfie. Well … I guess it's no stranger than when some women watch themselves masturbate in mirrors or in videos. That happens.

    I see people grimacing and squirming. So, I'm moving on to other topics.

    How is Amy Schumer not on here? She thinks more of herself than anyone I've even seen. And, the fucked up thing is, she's not funny at all, the jokes that were funny have been proven to be stolen, and she has talked about how great she if plenty.

    Some people just need a dose of reality and get knocked on their ass once in awhile. They are breeding the Communist peddling bubble people, those whose lives exist only in a bubble.

    These videos are silly and nothing short of bullying. Its like rumours you hear in school and pass them around. None of us know what any of these actors are like in real life. We all have bad days and theyre no different. Lets spread positive vibes to one another. ❤

    3 attractive actresses?
    Was she talking about "Charmed?"
    Bc I can't remember the name of the actress with glasses from 90210, as there is NO way tori spelling is who was referenced.
    Her face looks like a genetic syndrome mixed with the kid from the movie "mask", but the diet version.

    Gwyneth is an idiot, but her plastic surgery has definitely helped her original homely face. She wouldn't be where she is without her parents. Her acting is rudimentary at best.

    Seriously Miles Teller has no right to say crap about other celebrities, he is one of the worst actors of this generation. What is he known for? The painfully horrible Fantastic Four? Playing the mean jerkish dude in the flop that was the Divergent Trilogy? Seriously dude, grow up

    I think I speak for everyone when I say that Shannon Doherty has no reason to be arrogant. Not that anybody on this list does BUT I have always thought she was sooo UNattractive and too skinny with her flamingo legs.

    They should cut themselves to be reminded they are human beings and incredibly lucky. There are talented people out there who never got their break.
    When they die, they can’t take anything with them. 🤷🏽‍♀️

    tIt's a known fact per leading psychiatrists/psychologists that a great many celebs are malignant narcissists/sociopaths and sometimes psychopaths who kill others! There have been a few Hollywood famous murders over the past decades since the 1920s and 30s, so nothing new! The Queen of GOOP is nothing but a spoiled brat and she did grow up wealthy so stuff it Gwyneth, don't bullshit us about that! Her mother would also disagree that she grew up with a silver spoon in mouth! I never liked Faye Dunaway, another real narcissistic bitch! She just rides on the fame of a couple of movies, "Bonnie and Clyde" and " Mommie Dearest"! She's ruined her looks with plastic surgery, too! Do we know who she is? Any celeb asking that question is a malignant narcissist with an out of whack ego! That question is a dead give-away to narcissistic personality disorder! Read Dr. Drew Pinsky's best selling book about that, well worth reading but it's nothing new in show biz, but according to psychiatrists/psychologists it's getting worst in this society and elsewhere around the world and the narcissistic media doesn't help either like "People" magazine and other tabloids addicted to celebrity news…they perpetrate it as well! A disease imho!! smdh

    It's not hard to become this arrogant and Hollywood. All you have to do is blow better than other people allow rapists and pedophiles to take advantage of you for a part and be willing to keep your mouth shut and not in narc on these criminals and you'll fit right in. Oprah Winfrey Whoopi Goldberg Joy Behar George Clooney Sean Penn Cameron Diaz Angelina Jolie Jennifer Aniston basically all the people that you love in Hollywood are the very people that know who the pedophiles are and have said nothing about it for decades. if any of these people had a conscience they would have offed themselves a long time ago. Hollywood is nothing more than a bunch of drug-addicted alcohol-induced anti-American anti-christian Pro terrorists like the Muslim Brotherhood and antifa now and care. If you buy a movie ticket for you or your family you support this.

    Shannen Doherty another Casting Couch Queen… Talentless and unattractive Shannon has taken more balls to the face then a 20-year veteran of the porn industry.

    Katherine Heigl and obnoxiously unattractive overacting talentless piece of crap who absolutely loves the casting couch and that's why she's allowed to stick around. Tell us Katherine how many people do you personally know that have been taken advantage of by the Elites in Hollywood? There's only one rule to being a Democrat and Hollywood and that is keep your mouth shut unless you're on the couch. Catherine doesn't need to be a drug addict or an alcoholic and Hollywood she just needs to hum the right tune with the right organ. The way I understand it she's not even very good at but just the fact that she will do it well that's all it takes.

    who the hell is 'Miles Teller'?????? never heard of him. sounds like your typical arrogant PoS in Hollywood. He actually sounds like our very own PoS tennis player Nick Kyrios. He thinks he's a great tennis player but he constantly shows that he is a dickhead with an over inflated ego about his own self accomplishments. Like Teller he's only in it for the money. They are both talentless hacks.
