We all like to think of our favourite celebrities as clean cut, wholesome people with no vices don’t we?
Well maybe not, but it’s still quite shocking when we discover they are actually just normal people with the same urges and addictions as the rest of us.
There have been some famous drunks in the past, but not until recently were the stars drunken escapades captured on film.
That’s all changed now as if any celebrity dares to get out and get even slightly tipsy, you know there will be footage or at least photos of them in the newspaper or on the Internet the next day.
So with a bit of YouTube digging, here are 5 of my favourite displays of celebrities off their faces!
David HasselHoff Half Cut, Half Naked & Eating A Burger
The sight of a half naked half cut David Hasselhoff eating a burger wasn’t something I ever expected to see in my lifetime. But when confirmed alcoholic Hasselhoff came home in this state, his daughter decided to capture the scene on film and post it all over the place to shock the Baywatch star in to sobering up.
I’m not bothered about that really, it’s just funny seeing him stagger around pissed. He reminds me of me eating a kebab after a good night out.
Britney Spears Wasted: Drunk Or Stoned?
This is a classic video of Britney Spears completely wasted, probably through drink. Looking back, this could be the start of the slippery slide which ended with Britney flashing her beaver to the whole world while out on the town with Paris Hilton.
Then of course, she decided to shave her hair off, and ended up in rehab, God bless her! This video was shot by ex husband Kevin Federline, and is great viewing purely for the garbled nonsense Britney comes out with.
Anna Nicole Smith Presenting An Award Drunk
This video of Anna Nicole Smith isn’t as funny now that we know the end of the story, but it’s still worth watching to show what can happen if you abuse your body.
I think the presenter talking about the clip said it best when she wished Anna would get some help. Boy, did she need some friends by the end.
Ashlee Simpson Drunk In A McDonalds
Ashlee Simpson lucily isn’t very famous over here in the UK, which on this display of drunkenness is a good think for us Brits. In this video, she’s shown in a McDonalds restaurant acting like a spoilt brat, and swearing at all and sundry.
I love the fact that a customer shoots this footage, proving that in these days of mobile phone video cameras no celebrity is ever safe from prying eyes.
Oliver Reed Drunken Singing On Chat Show
This is a true classic of the genre, as Fabled heavy drinker and some time actor Oliver Reed appears absolutely pissed off his face on a British TV show.
As well as being totally incomprehensible during the interview, he then puts on an impromptu sing and dance show for the audience, making a complete prat of himself in the process.
So there we have it kids, don’t drink and then show yourself up in public, especially if you’re famous. These days someone WILL be there filming you making a complete arse of yourself.
