One of the Barbarian Brothers apparently has mental issues. Some news outlets call him Bumbarian Brother now. He's living on the streets preaching weird stuff. There's a video on youtube I think.

I'm trying not to pick on seriously Ill people and focus on stars who just went  inexplicably nuts,  not really ill people. Like how Charlie sheen threw away his two and a half men career.  Or Mel Gibson's blowup.

Tom Neal, who was in lotsa cool noirs like DETOUR (1945) and garbage like the BRUTE MAN (1946), beat the s**t out of Franchot Tone because he was f**king with his girlfriend Barbara Payton.
He got thrown in prison for manslaughter in 1965 for killing his wife!

Margot Kidder is an obvious one. Very sad.

Catherine Zeta Jones has bipolar disorder, as did Carrie Fisher. I don't think they imploded anywhere near as badly as Margot Kidder, though.

Amanda Seyfried has/had OCD.

Pro wrestler Chyna was very disturbed, as was Anna Nicole Smith.

Yancy Butler? Geez. First saw her in Hard Target with VanDamme. Didn't know she's had those kinds of problems.

Howard Hughes literally went insane - the richest man in the world starved to death because he thought someone would poison any food he ate.

My favourite Howard Hughes antics was when he spent weeks in a studio screening cinema, watching movies naked, while defecating into napkins. That's high class wtfkery.

You know the rumor that the. CIA drugged him and ruined his mind to keep him from spilling any secrets after he worked for them.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
