It’s a mistake all too common among little girls: Falling head over heels for a TV or film star, particularly if his character is adorable and kind. But an important thing to remember is that these fellow are performers, and while they may portray chivalrous, brave, intelligent, and talented figures in the moving pictures, they could be anything but the second they clock out for the day.
That seems to be the tragic fate of a few of my favorite male celebrities, namely Matthew Fox, who played heroic perfectionist doctor, Jack Shepard on “Lost” just a few short years ago. Though he looked out for others on the well-written television drama, he apparently doesn’t always do the same in real life. Former “Lost” cast mate Dominic Monaghan recently tweeted of Fox, “he beats women.not isolated incidents.often.” This serious accusation comes about a year after a bus driver decided to sue Fox under the allegations that he physically assaulted her and punched her in the groin. She has since dropped charges, which we’ll explain later, but as you’ll learn, he’s not off the hook. Here are a few actors who have come across as stand-up men onscreen but been reportedly awful to women off-camera.
