Russell Crowe

Russell Crowe is red-hot … and so is his temper. The actor, 48, first got into trouble in 1999 when he ended up in a videotaped scuffle with two men in his native Australia. Three years later, he exploded on a producer of the BAFTAs when a pre-recorded appearance he made had to be cut due to copyright issues. Later that year, he got into a reported brawl with a businessman inside of a restaurant in London. It all came to a culmination in 2005 when Crowe threw his hotel room’s telephone at the head of a concierge in New York City when it was out of order. After he was arrested, the Oscar winner was infamously led on a perp walk in front of the media, which he later called, “possibly the most shameful situation that I've ever gotten myself in ... and I've done some pretty dumb things in my life.”
