When Celebrities Go Nuts

Hey kids,


The celebrity tirade is something I find endlessly entertaining.  Here you have people that are famous for one reason or another that just cannot control themselves at the most inopportune time.  That time would be when they are being recorded.  So, with the release on the internet this week of another classic tirade I have decided to rank my favorites.  These tirades are all on the internet somewhere so go find them if you are so inclined.  Be warned that they all contain some harsh language.  All of these tirades are great so it was very tough ranking them, but here is what I have decided:


  1. Lily Tomlin – Her tirade on the set of I Heart Huckabees was the epitome of all tirades.  It had screaming, foul language, tearing down the director, yelling at Dustin Hoffman, etc.  It was a classic.  She got so out of control that the director started knocking things over.  Funny stuff.


  1. Christian Bale – The latest tirade is an instant classic.  He used the f word 36 times in a span of just three and a half minutes.  You can hear the DP saying he was sorry, but Bale just went on and on.  The director was no help either.  Some guy even turned his tirade into a hip hop song, which I urge to listen to after hearing the original.  I can’t wait to see the movie anyway, but now I just want to see it even more.


  1. Alec Baldwin – This one was particularly painful because he was screaming at his 11 year old daughter.  That does not stop it from being funny though.  Apparently she was not there when he called and that set him off.  Sometimes it takes so little to make a classic.  Check out the video online where they take his voicemail and have him call Dora the Explorer.


  1. Bill O’Reilly – We’ll do it live!  That’s what he shouted when he could not figure out the copy he was supposed to read.  Now, I think we all know my personal opinion of this jerk, so hearing this makes me laugh a lot. 


  1. Chris Berman – One of my favorite sportscasters had a bad day a few years ago.  Apparently someone walked in front of the camera and he just lost it.  Poor guy.  He’s so good, but he had a really bad moment.  He is not the type you would expect to explode so that is what makes this one so good.


  1. Orson Welles – What is a gonk?  Well, only the engineer knew for sure.  Oh that poor engineer.  Had he only known that Orson takes orders from one person under protest before he came to work that day.  Orson was calm as he demanded to speak with Mrs. Rogers, but we can only imagine what Orson told her when she got there.


So, there you have it.  My six favorite celebrity tirades.  I was tempted to add William Shatner’s dressing down of the poor engineer that asked for another take, but old Bill never really got too angry, he just made that guy wish he was never born.  It’s a funny one as well.  Check it out.





  1. There is already a song? People work quick. I don’t think I have used the F word 36 times in my life.
