This hairy Irish charmer islucky to still be here – he once told an interviewer that he would never touch cocaine, but that heroin was fine “in moderation”. He’s also been to rehab and has been at the centre of Playboy bunny’s sex tape scandal.
He hit a bum note when he first appeared on The X Factor, showing the entire audience his bottom. Not only was it a bit fuzzy, but he’d had the names of seven girls he’d snogged in Malia tattooed onto it.
He missed rehearsals so he could party and he got ITV into trouble with Ofcom for swearing while live on air before 9pm! After missing rehearsals to go out and party and snog girls, he treated the British public to some really terrible singing.
He was given the boot from The X Factor after breaking a ‘golden rule’ of the show. He later told heat he’d been chucked out for taking cocaine.
As part of the 80’s ‘bratpack’, the snarly actor led a fairly average celebrity life until an incrediblypublic meltdown in 2010. He assaulted then-wife Brooke Mueller, then gave a series of bizarre interviews which got him a cult following. In one, he claimed: “I probably took more drugs than anyone could survive. I was banging seven-gram rocks, because that's how I roll. Ihave one speed, I have one gear: Go.” In the end he lost his job on Two and a Half Men. Really ‘winning’, weren’t you, Charlie?
Where do we start? From annoying neighbours with loud gonzo-style gigs in fans’ living rooms, to being caugh tcountless times in possession of drugs, to mugging a client while working as a rentboy… the ex-boyfriend of one Kate Moss has got the longest badboy record we’ve come across!
In his womanizing heyday, the former drug addict claimed to have boshed everyone from Kate Moss to Manuel from Fawlty Towers’ granddaughter. Proving he didn’t have to take his hemp trousers off to have a good time, he infamously dressed up as Osama Bin Laden at work (presenting on MTV) the day after 9/11.
When he married Katy Perry, we thought Russell was ready to change his womanizing ways, but 14 months later, they split up, and he went back to dating a string of pretty women.
