The 30 Most Controversial Hollywood Actors

30. Russell Crowe

Renowned argument enthusiast Crowe has been embroiled in more than his fair share of public bust-ups over the years. His most controversial moment: His arrest in 2005 following an incident in which he chucked a telephone at an employee of New York’s Mercer Hotel. Crowe would go on to describe the episode as, “possibly the most shameful situation that I’ve ever gotten myself in.”

29. Tim Allen

Before he became everyone’s favorite Santa (or the handy tool man), Tim Allen was caught dealing drugs — specifically cocaine. He was arrested for possession of nearly a pound-and-a-half of cocaine at the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek International airport in Michigan in 1978. He subsequently pleaded guilty to drug trafficking, and provided the names of other dealers in exchange for a sentence of more than two years (instead of possible life imprisonment).

28. Rob Lowe

A video surfaced of the then-24-year-old Parks and Rec star having sexual relations with two women the night before the 1988 Democratic National Convention. When it emerged, it was discovered that one of the girls was only 16 years old. Her mother slapped Lowe with a civil lawsuit, and he ended up settling with a large sum of money. Lowe has asserted that he did not know that the second girl was underage.
