When celebrities turn bad, often in the full glare of the media spotlight, it’s a little like watching a slow motion car crash – we know we should turn away, but somehow, we just can’t. Could celebrity bad behavior be rooted in the stars? Does a celebrity’s star sign play a part in their meltdown? Yes, to a certain extent. Sun signs are only one small part of astrology, and the full picture is much more complex than that, but here’s our guide to the type of tantrums we can expect from celebs.
Even on a good day, Aries finds it hard to walk the line between assertiveness and aggression, so it’s perhaps no surprise that Aries celebrities can become known for their foul tempers. An Aries person sees the world in quite simplistic, black and white terms – if you’re not for them, you’re against them, there is no middle ground as far as they’re concerned. They’re also not very bothered about what others think of them, and are quite happy to scream and shout in public. To be fair, sometimes the anger is triggered by the Arian desire to protect their loved ones – Alec Baldwin, for instance, has a history of tweet fights and scuffles with photographers and those he believes are harassing him or his family. Other times, though, it’s just plain scary behavior – such as Shannon Doherty’s gunpoint threats against her ex-fiance, or her highly publicized bar fight with Bonita Money. Personifying Arian ego in action, actor Russell Crowe is known for his outbursts on set, particularly when he believes a scene is beneath him – because fundamentally with Aries, it’s all about “me, me, me”.
