7 Cringe-Worthy Times Celebs Behaved Badly on Vacation

7 Cringe-Worthy Times Celebs Behaved Badly on Vacation

We can't look, but we can't look away.

Traveling as a celeb is not always as seamless as Instagram feeds and paparazzi snaps make it look. Nope, stars are just like us in that luggage woes and missing wallets can sometimes feel like just too much to handle. But apropos of their larger-than-life status, sometimes the stars react to vacation inconveniences in outsized — even illegal — ways.

From Cara Delevingne's Eurostar nightmare this week to Charlie Sheen’s hotel destruction story for the ages, here are seven examples of celebs behaving badly while traveling that are hard to watch — and yet we can't look away...

1. Cara Delavigne


Cara might play it cool on the pages of Vogue — but even supermodels have their breaking points. Earlier this week, Delavigne had a widely reported meltdown after her luggage was selected for random screening. The drama went down at Gare du Nord in Paris, where Cara was set to board the Eurostar headed to London. Apparently there was shouting, cursing, and even praying involved. The good news is that she made it to sis Poppy’s birthday bash in time.  

2. Vanessa Hudgens

This past February, Vanessa Hudgens and beau Austin Butler embarked on a romantic getaway that quickly went south. In honor of Valentine's Day, the couple carved a "Austin + Vanessa" heart onto a rock in Arizona's Coconino National Forest. While the verdict was out on these two for months, the pair was given a $1,000 fine late last week. We hope Vanessa goes back to being Coachella flower queen and leaves protected nature alone.

3. Justin Bieber

“Sorry” could apply to the singer's feelings about his historically scandalous travel style. He's left his pet monkey behind in Germany, treated the ancient Mayan ruins as a personal jungle gym, and suggested Anne Frank would have been a Belieber. Then, of course, there was that time in China when he actually made his bodyguards carry him up the Great Wall of China.

4. Naomi Campbell

Cara Delevingne isn’t the first supermodel to have a majorly public meltdown while traveling: That award goes to Naomi Campbell, who, back in 2008 was kicked off a Los Angeles-bound British Airways flight. After learning that her luggage didn’t make it onto the plane, she became verbally abusive to the crew and even spit on the police officer who escorted her off the plane. After her arrest, Campbell was sentenced to 200 hours of community service.

5. Charlie Sheen

For Campbell, it was lost luggage that set her off. For Charlie Sheen, it was a missing cell phone and wallet. In October 2010, Sheen pretty much lost his mind while searching for his other lost items. As a result, he was banned from New York's Plaza hotel for trashing the room mid-hunt. It didn't help that he was allegedly high on coke at the time, leading to $7,000 in hotel damages. 

6. Kate Moss

Yet another mid-air meltdown offender, Kate Moss joins our list of British supermodels causing a stir. Last summer, Moss was on her way to Luton from Bodrum, Turkey when things took a disastrous turn. After being refused alcohol by the flight crew, she dug out her own bottle from her carry-on and served herself. Once reprimanded, she proceeded to call the pilot nasty names. Yikes!

7. Amanda Bynes

We're glad that Amanda Bynes is on the road to recovery but her past travel antics earn her a spot on our list. According to sources, she nearly destroyed her room at the Ritz Carlton, New York in shambles — leaving grime, trash, and ash in her wake. After racking up a $9,000 bill in nine days, the staff had had enough. Also in 2013, Bynes attempted to board a flight to Los Angeles without any identification. She pleaded: "Don't you know who I am?!"
