After reading our 10 Famous People Who Act Nothing Like You’ve Imagined, and you’ll understand why the saying ‘You should never meet your heroes’ has never been more true.

We all have ways we like to imagine the people we admire, especially the famous ones who have their PR people pushing a narrative.

But no matter how little we know about them, we still get attached to them—and then get upset when we find out who they really are.

Because sooner or later the spotlight gets turned off, and more often than not, the person gets caught doing or saying something that shows them to be nothing but a jackass.

10 Famous People Who Are Nothing Like You’ve Imagined

The Top 10 Best List is in no particular order

1. Florence Henderson Was No Carol Brady 10 Famous People Who Act Nothing Like You've Imagined Florence Henderson

On The Brady Bunch, she portrayed Carol Brady as such a squeaky clean mom that the show even went so far as to make sure she was known as a remarried widower and not (gasp!) a divorcee.

But off-camera, it seems actress Florence Henderson liked to walk on the wild side.

In 2001, she revealed in her memoir, Life is Not a Stage, that she engaged in a string of disastrous one-night stands.

One of her dalliances was with John Lindsay, the then-mayor of New York City, while she was married.

“I was lonely,” Henderson said of her Beverly Hills Hotel tryst (via Reuters). “I knew it wasn’t the right thing to do. So, what did I do? I did it.”

Hysterically, Henderson said she caught crabs from the mayor, who promptly sent her flowers and a note of apology.

2. Taylor Swift 4Chan “Lorde” 10 Famous People Who Act Nothing Like You've Imagined Taylor Swift

4chan is about as notorious as a website can get, but the one thing they are amazing at is putting all the puzzle pieces together.

And those 4chan’s cyber sleuths put together a very compelling chart analyzing the posts of an anonymous, blonde-haired user who posts on the site under the name Lorde who, they insist, is Taylor Swift.

The day before Taylor Swift tweeted pictures of a new cat she’d named Meredith, the 4chan user Lorde posted pictures of an identical-looking cat and amazingly named the cat “Meredith.”

Want more? On December 13, 2012, Lorde uploaded Taylor Swift’s song “Royals” to the message board asking for feedback.

Lorde denies that it was her. But somebody definitely posted her song there, and it went up a good three months before the song was released.

3. Stephen Hawking Loved Sex Clubs  10 Famous People Who Act Nothing Like You've Imagined Stephen Hawking

Most of us don’t really tend to think about Stephen Hawking’s sex life.

But, as it turns out,  Hawking must have thought about it a lot.

When Stephan Hawking wasn’t breaking new ground in astrophysics, he frequently visited a swinger’s club called Freedom Acres.

The sex club is so repugnant that they even warn its patrons that they have to supply their own lubricant and encourages them to “bring a change of clothes.”

And this didn’t happen when Stephen Hawking was young, he was visiting the raunchy sex club when he was 70 years old.

When the news broke, his friends laughably tried to defend him by saying that he only went there once.

4. Gandhi Loved His Poop 10 Famous People Who Act Nothing Like You've Imagined Gandhi

Years after his death, one of Mahatma Gandhi’s followers fondly recalled, “[Gandhi] taught us to be open about everything.”

He didn’t really mean “everything,” though. He mostly just meant bowel movements.

It was a biological process with which Gandhi was unnervingly at ease.

He would start the morning by greeting the local women with a wave and the polite question of: “Did you have a good bowel morning movement this morning, sisters?”

EWWWWWWW!

Albert Einstein might have been a blessing to the world of science, but he wasn’t exactly a blessing to women.

Albert Einstein wasn’t really one for monogamy. He had dozens of mistresses behind his wives’ backs, and his letters make it pretty clear that he didn’t feel the slightest bit bad about it.

But Einstein was more than just a serial cheater. He was basically the early 20th-century version of Harvey Weinstein.

Einstein also had the “disconcerting habit” of leaving his robe undone, letting everything hang out free for all the world to see.

And he did this whether he was in the privacy of his own home or when he was out for a stroll on the street.

When a woman asked him to close his robe, he would get angry.

Prince: The man who wrote lyrics so raunchy that he is the reason that albums come with parental guidance warnings.

But Prince, was very different in real life—especially after 2001 when he became a Jehovah’s Witness. And he was a surprisingly devout follower of the religion.

He would even go door-to-door with a Bible tucked under his arm and tell people about God’s kingdom on Earth. Usually, he was accompanied by Sly and the Family Stone bassist Larry Graham.

With his new religion came a surprising anti-sex attitude for a man who wrote “Jack U Off.”

Prince, despite his wardrobe, publicly spoken against gay marriage and sexual promiscuity in general, saying, “God came to Earth and saw people sticking it wherever and doing it with whatever, and he just cleared it all out. “

Chrissy Teigen the supposedly ‘woke’ Twitter user has recently been exposed for sending shockingly cruel messages to other women on social media.

Teigen is known on social media for her sparky humor, but her archived social messages didn’t jibe with the image on which she has built her brand — as a loving mom and wife, and a champion of women.

Teigen once told TV personality Courtney Stodden in 2011 to “Go. To sleep. FOREVER.”

She also mocked Lindsay Lohan, who admitted to cutting herself in the past, bymockingly tweeting: “Lindsay adds a few more slits to her wrists when she sees Emma Stone.”

And in 2013, Teigen publicly called “Teen Mom” star Farrah Abraham “a whore.”

Ben Affleck is one of Hollywood’s most sought-after actors and directors, but behind the scenes, he has battled substance abuse and gambling issues for well over a decade.

He entered rehab in 2001, reportedly to deal with ongoing alcohol abuse.

And according to TMZ, alcohol, extramarital affairs, and gambling were said to be key factors in the downfall of his marriage to actress Jennifer Garner.

And let’s not forget the time he was allegedly removed and banned from a casino for counting cards.

Still, the most damning case against Affleck came in Garner’s first post-divorce interview with Vanity Fair, during which she alluded to multiple issues throughout their marriage, including rumors of infidelity.

“No one needs to hate him for me … Don’t worry — my eyes were wide open during the marriage. I’m taking good care of myself.” Yikes.
