The general notion is that celebrities are no ordinary people. They are a pedestal higher than the average human being, widely known and celebrated for their immense talents and innumerable, unmatched achievements in various fields, ranging from sports to entertainment to business and so on. We adore them, and envy their wealth, beauty, intelligence, dexterity, strength, and fame. We pattern our lives after theirs, looking up to them as role models. Perfect beings who can do no wrong. Until we hear news of their wrongdoings from the media. Often times, we are shocked either because of the caliber of the person involved, or the nature and gravity of the offense involved. How can such a person do such a thing?
The shock and disappointment we feel emanates from the fact we have never considered the fact that celebrities are actually human beings like us and although they possess a plethora of strengths, they also have their moral conflicts, personal challenges, and equally possess weaknesses, ranging from short tempers to alcohol and drug addiction to lust and even greed. The list goes on.
We never really know these people. Being a celebrity often leads to people holding false or exaggerated opinions about them, perhaps because of the kind of movie roles they act, or their good-naturedness at public functions. Being in the limelight often blinds the world to who celebrities are. And when their real personality is revealed, we end up being shocked.
So yes, celebrities have flaws, hence they get in trouble with the law too, as no one is above the law. The only difference is that their celebrity status sometimes leads to bias, causing them to walk free or get a lighter sentence.
The following section lists 20 of the most shocking celebrity arrests ever, stories that caused the world to gasp and open their eyes wide.
