7 Celebs We Love to Hate

While some celebrities keep our attention because of their talent, fashions, philanthropic acts, and enviable lifestyle, others generate just as much mindshare and water cooler banter because we just can't believe how annoying they are. Following are five of the latter-those celebrities we love to hate.


Gwyneth PaltrowGwyneth Paltrow1. Gwyneth Paltrow
Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow may have a beautiful face and body, but her personality is what earned her a place on this list. Paltrow was once quoted saying, "I can't pretend to be somebody who makes $25,000 a year," in response to accusations her email newsletter GOOP contains only tips and products she and her famous friends can afford-and that attitude is exactly what makes us love to hate her. Secretly, we love when GOOP arrives in our inboxes just so we can see what kooky diet or $50 lip balm she's recommending!

Tom CruiseTom Cruise
2. Tom Cruise
In the '80s and '90s, Tom Cruise was one of the hottest stars in the world. Girls loved his boyish good looks and guys would flock to theatres to see his latest action movie. But, following his split from second wife Nicole Kidman, Cruise became more famous for his antics in the media than his acting career. Starting with his couch-jumping appearance on Oprah, which was followed by a public spat with Brooke Shields (and later Matt Lauer during a Today appearance) over medication she took for post-partum depression, Cruise transitioned from A-lister we all love to one we love to hate. That being said, we genuinely love Suri Cruise and her fierce style!

Kim KardashianKim Kardashian3. Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian is the current poster child for celebs who became famous for doing essentially nothing. Kim's claim to fame is her curvaceous figure and her 2007 sex tape. Since the tape put her in the spotlight, the Kardashian family, under matriarch Kris Jenner's guidance, has built a multi-million dollar empire based in large part on Kim's face and personality. The family earned a whopping $65 million in 2010 and Kim's recent wedding to basketball player Kris Humpheries reportedly cost $10 million!

Fall's Must-Have Boots and Heels


Tiger WoodsTiger Woods4. Tiger Woods
In one fell swoop, Tiger Woods went from being one of the most stable and wholesome sports superstars to one of the most hated. Wood's marital infidelities have marred his image forever and the crisis in his personal life seems to have affected his golf game-a fact many can't help reveling in. The 2010 season, his first after a brief break from competition following the exposure of his personal troubles, was winless-a first for Woods since he turned pro in 1996. A recent public spat with caddy Steve Williams, whom Woods fired, has further tarnished his image in the public eye.

Kanye WestKanye West5. Kanye West

There's no denying Kanye West is a talented rapper and producer, but his ego is so big we doubt he needs us to say that. West is on record as saying his "greatest pain in life is that [he] will never be able to see [him]self perform live" and that he "will go down as the voice of this generation." Sorry, Kanye, but we doubt schoolchildren generations from now will be studying the lyrics to "Gold Digger" in their history classes, even if we enjoy the humor factor of your over-the-top comments.

Mel GibsonMel Gibson
6. Mel Gibson
Once a box-office powerhouse, actor and Oscar-winning director Mel Gibson's alcohol-fueled anti-Semitic, racist, and misogynist tirades have destroyed his career in recent years. Despite his attempt to resurrect his image with a touching performance in friend (and vocal supporter) Jodie Foster's film The Beaver, Gibson has likely fallen too far to ever redeem himself in the public eye.

LeBron JamesLeBron James7. LeBron James
Basketball star LeBron James' recent free-agency defection from hometown team the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Miami Heat has cemented his place on our love-to-hate list. After months of speculation about what James would do once his contract with the Cavaliers expired, the star forward held a press conference to announce his decision-only minutes after notifying the Cavaliers' management of his decision. James-and his ego-drew criticism from fans and those in the sports world for the manner in which he conducted himself during his free-agency negotiations.
