The sometimes astounding, often deplorable, and frequently shocking exploits of Hollywood's most notorious leading men

Offstage, some of movies' and television's most popular leading men have often led private lives filled with overindulgences and troublesome exploits. Most of these irregular activities by some of Tinseltown's greats were hushed up or toned way down to save careers and reputations, but now the real facts are revealed in Hollywood Bad Boys! Bestselling showbiz author James Robert Parish provides a road map to the stormy and sometimes wacky lives of the show business famous who've taken a walk on the wild side. From tales of drug addiction and alcoholism to sex scandals and murder, and just plain naughty behavior, Parish delivers the behind-the-scenes facts on 70 of the most notorious movie and television stars in Hollywood history.

From the Back Cover:

Get down and dirty with the most celebrated Hollywood rebels without a cause in this must-have guide for every pop-culture vulture

Which hunky Baldwin brother has a tendency to go ballistic? Which legendary rebel was known as "the human ashtray" throughout L.A.'s S&M clubs? Can you count (not on one hand) the number of times Robert Downey Jr. has been sent to the slammer? It's tough to keep track of the many escapades and misadventures of Tinseltown's baddest boys. But with Hollywood Bad Boys, celebrity watchers can easily follow the fascinating stories of the screen's most infamous rascals and rogues over many decades.

Providing a provocative look into the wild lives of seventy of Hollywood's hellions, both past and present--from Tupac to Pee-wee, Elvis to Mickey, Hugh Grant to Howard Hughes--Hollywood expert and author James Robert Parish tells all.

Inside you'll find:

  • A convenient, alphabetical arrangement that makes finding your favorite bad boy a piece of cake
  • Rare, black-and-white photos of the baddest of the bad
  • Individual minibios on the sinful stars, revealing their often troubled childhoods and charting their collision courses with fame . . . and infamy

Whether probing Tinseltown's sordid past for forgotten facts or making sense of today's famous freewheelers, Hollywood Bad Boys assembles for the first time the amazing scandals and outrageous shenanigans of the celebrated men who indulge their desires without restraint--from the most notorious to simply the naughtiest.
