Seeing longtime actor and comedian Will Ferrell on this list makes us a bit sad, we must admit. The “Elf” star has been conquering moviegoers with his absolutely hilarious performances in “Anchorman,” “Old School,” “Talladega Nights,” and dozens of other classic films. Sadly, though, there have been more than a few accounts of Ferrell’s very rude behavior towards his fans. Although we still want to give him the benefit of the doubt and wonder if it’s just his signature dry humor.
Apparently, on several occasions when approached by fans asking to take a photo with him, Ferrell has openly laughed at them for even asking. It seems the comedian finds it hilarious that people would ask him for his signature or a picture when they don’t even know him (or so he’s told fans repeatedly).
Jason Segel Is a Door Slammer
Jason Segel won our hearts with his beloved character in “How I Met Your Mother”; and he’s continued to do so in the many rom-coms he’s starred in after that – “Forgetting Sarah Marshall”, “The Five-Year Engagement,” “Bad Teacher,” and others. But it seems that the sweet, kind guys Segel plays on the silver screen are quite far from his real-life persona.
According to a fan’s account, they approached Segel while he was entering his car and kindly asked him for a photo. Not only did Segel flat-out refuse, but he made a point of slamming the car door in the person’s face. You’re breaking our hearts, Marshall!
Adam Levine’s Hateful Remarks
The “Maroon 5” lead singer has certainly come a long way when it comes to his career, but apparently not when it comes to his personality. Adam Levine has long been known for his snide and arrogant attitude and his often-crude sense of humor, something that seems to have affected his “The Voice” costar, Blake Shelton.
Apparently, during an episode of the famous talent show, Levine loudly stated that he “hates” Shelton. For the first few seconds, everybody in the room smiled, thinking that Levine was just being his typical snide, sarcastic self, but after a very uncomfortable silence and Levine’s dead serious face, it was obvious it wasn’t a joke. Talk about a toxic work environment.
Jesse Eisenberg Isn’t a Talk Show Host Favorite
It’s clear that much like his portrayal of Zuckerberg in “The Social Network,” actor Jesse Eisenberg is more of the introvert type. However, that doesn’t give him an excuse to be rude and humiliate anyone, as he did during his infamous 2013 interview with journalist Romina Puga.
Eisenberg was promoting his hit film “Now You See Me,” and Puga hosted him on her show. She asked him to perform a magic trick and say her name to the camera, which Puga did with all of her interviewees. Eisenberg joked about Puga’s “basic interview style” and “bland questions written on her hand”. He also told her she was on “his time” and not the other way around. All in all, Puga said she was “humiliated” and called him a jerk. Yikes!
Jon Hamm Is a Cold Meanie
Ever since he played the enigmatic, handsome madman Don Draper in “Mad Men,” Jon Hamm has been steadily climbing the Hollywood ladder. Hamm is a phenomenal actor, but much like his Draper character, many of the roles under his belt make him seem a bit cold. And apparently, according to celebrity know-it-all and brutally honest comedienne Kathy Griffin, Hamm is as cold and as mean as Don Draper.
Griffin recalled meeting Hamm at a party once and said he was “one of the rudest people I’ve met.” The outspoken comedienne said Hamm was trying to be funny and made a joke about Griffin being old, prompting her to respond, “You’re a mean douchebag.” For Griffin, Hamm is pretty much summed up by this: “one of these hot guys who's mildly funny but actually thinks he's comedian-level funny.” Yikes!
