If you are an actor, a higher-than-normal dose of confidence is an indispensable trait. It gets you through every casting, harsh criticisms, and potentially unflattering news stories about yourself in the media.
Remember that the world always keeps an eye on public figure or anybody with a celebrity status.
Everyone pays attention to what you say and do, so it is safe to say that self-confidence and perhaps a robust ego are parts of the job requirement.
While a simple decency is always appreciated, every now and then actors have to tell the world they are big stars ready to take the next acting gigs and deliver great performance.
Huge egos can boost actors’ career in Hollywood, but some of them appear to have no idea if the line between self-confidence and arrogance is pretty thin that they just don’t bother anymore.
They make derogatory comments and irritating statements about anyone or display obnoxious behaviors off screen. It has happened before with the following celebrities.
10 Gwyneth Paltrow
Rising to prominence in Emma, where she played the title character of Jane Austen’s novel adaptation film in 1996, and followed by five other leading roles two years later, one can only say that Gwyneth Paltrow deserves to be proud of herself.
But when she made several haughty statements to brag about her fortunes and acting skill superiority, she seemed to have crossed the line between pride and arrogance.
Paltrow says that she is really f**king good at her job and cannot just pretend to be somebody who makes $25,000 a year.
9 Faye Dunaway
From a publication by the Daily Express we now know that Faye Dunaway can be a major pain behind the scenes.
She reportedly belittles just about every service industry employee on regular basis, and claims that her plane tickets should be upgraded befitting her celebrity status.
A flight attendant claimed Dunaway would be screaming at everyone and demanding special treatment.
While filming Chinatown, she reportedly threw a cup filled with urine to director Roman Polanski because he didn’t let her use the restroom.
8 Miles Teller
In the upcoming Top Gun: Maverick, Miles Teller will portray Bradley Bradshaw.
Being in such a popular film, especially cast alongside big names like Tom Cruise, Jennifer Connelly, and Ed Harris should be enough for just about every actor to earn recognition from the whole world.
Teller apparently found an easier way to get to the same point, and that is by making a lot of annoying claims in public.
During an interview with Esquire in 2015, he claimed the highball glass was modeled after his genital. Before that, he told the New York Times if a lot of actors of his generation were not proper actors.
7 Catherine Zeta-Jones
In June 2018, Catherine Zeta-Jones claimed she was no longer a humble person.
Now she will not allow anyone to shame her just because she is loaded with fortunes and blessed with lasting beauty.
Back in 2013, she bragged about her riches in a spectacularly arrogant manner.
Mrs. Douglas said a million dollar was not a lot of money for people like her and that she bought houses just like money people collected Garbage Pail Kids.
As it turns out, one of the main reasons she collects properties is simply for the view.
