12 Celebrities With Skeletons In Their Closets


Everyone makes mistakes – some just do it a little better than others.

We are bound to have some unfortunate mishaps in course of our relatively short lives, but the difference between us and celebrities is that they have to explain themselves to the public.

The unwritten rule is the following: The bigger the celebrity, the bigger the skeleton (or the closet). These five celebrities have some major skeletons in their closet . . . among other things. So, lets let them out!

1. Mark Wahlberg

In 1986, back when Mr. Wahlberg was just a Marky Mark poster with those ridiculous underpants sticking out of the top of his pants, he was charged with the attempted murder of a Vietnamese man with a wooden stick. On that very same day, he managed to assault another Vietnamese man, leaving the man permanently blind in one eye. For these two assaults Mark was charged with attempted murder, later pleading guilty to an assault charge that landed him a two year prison sentence at Boston’s Deer Island House of Correction. Of the two-year sentence, he served 45 days and was then released.

Despite Mark being only sixteen at the time of his conviction, he still had run-ins with the law before this. At fifteen, he had a civil action filed against him for harassing African-American children in two separate incidents. In total, the Boston Police has about 20-25 reports involving Marky Mark.

In a 2006 interview with ABC News, commenting on his crimes Mark Wahlberg said:

“I did a lot of things that I regret, and I have certainly paid for my mistakes…You have to go and ask for forgiveness and it wasn’t until I really started doing good and doing right by other people, as well as myself, that I really started to feel that guilt go away. So I don’t have a problem going to sleep at night. I feel good when I wake up in the morning.”

After serving time in prison, Mark Wahlberg changed his bad-boy ways, citing that it wasn’t what he made it out to be and started on his career path of becoming a famous Hollywood actor.

    I can’t believe that Matthrew Broderick actually killed two women in a car accident and was fined $175.00 for their lives? What is wrong with this whole incident that he didn’t serve any time at all. Was he responsible for the accident, was he under the influence that he lost control of the car? You decided to add this man to your list of skeleton closet cases and yet you don’t give the whole story. I want to know why he got off so easy and what about the family of those ladies, don’t they have a right to have their say in this article?

      Joy — there’s this new invention called GOOGLE, you should try it sometime! it was an accident… typically people aren’t ‘fined’ for an accident even if it results in death. — he wasn’t under the influence — you seem extremely angry about this and yet, you didn’t choose to look it up before your rant…odd.

    Oh this really helps kids see how crime doesn’t pay, so far most of these articles have shown how you can do terrible deeds in your life and still make it out smelling like roses. Don King, murders two people in his life and he becomes a celebrity, and how does that show kids it’s wrong to be a criminal?

    I think it’s wonderful that Vin is an author, what’s so skeleton about that? And so what if it’s Dungeons and Dragons, which isn’t an easy game to play to begin with. You have to have a great imagination and memory to play something so intense. I’d like to see some one from the staff of this site play it and then write about it. Won’t be so easy, that’s for sure. Roll the dice and see for yourself.

    Every single one of these Hollywood offspring have 2 Hollywood involved parents, with the exception of Jessica Capshaw. She is the only one who has 1 parent not involved in the industry.

    Once a loser always a loser. This punk marky blinded the man he attacked in one eye. Ask him how wonderful it is that marky got away with not going to prison.

  • Carol McMeans

    you make tim allen’s past sound like something to be admired. “i knew I liked this guy for some reason”. what was the reason. hopefully its because he came through all that and bettered himself.

    Andy Garcia was shirtless in Godfather 3 in his scene with Bridget Fonda. If I had the time I’m sure I could come up with more. And since when is he a “playboy”? He’s been married to the same woman for like 30 yrs.
