Noughties singer Avril Lavigne disappointed fans when she refused any physical contact with her fans during a meet and greet in LA. Bare in mind, fans put $400 plus to meet her and she wouldn't even shake their hands. Barely any eye contact even. This is so unexpected from this punk-pop princess!

Beverly Hills 90210 actress, Shannen Doherty, apparently has a bit of a bad side to her and one of her co-stars, Jason Priestley definitely had a few words to say about her, "She really and truly did not give a [expletive]” he wrote. Seems there is a lot of tension in this cast... awkward!

20. Christian Bale

imagesource: reddit
The word on the street is that you should definitely not cross this actor. When the director of photography on site of the Terminator Salvation set ruined his shot in one scene, Bale went crazy at him. So crazy that he was forced to apologize for his behaviour.

21. January Jones

On set of Mad Men, January Jones decided to be a total ice queen and didn't want to socialize with any of her fellow cast members. She was so unapproachable that the actor who played her son steered clear of her as much as he could during shooting. Not great for an A-lister!

Who knew the fresh prince of Bel Air could be such an idiot?! After slapping Chris Rock across the face at the Oscars, it's come to light that Smith is a bit of an egotistical nightmare. Comedians and actors in the industry have all called Smith an "A-hole" backing these stories up.

Famed for his role as Johnny Cash, Phoenix has earned himself more than just an Academy Award. The actor has been known to have several public meltdowns and in 2008, he was seen acting like a real jerk to some hotel staff, which he says was a hoax. What do you believe?

27. Jay-Z

One half of Hollywood's greatest couples, Jay-Z is a bit of a prima donna in the showbiz world. Jay-Z's hotel demands are shocking but hilarious, his rooms needs to be at exactly 71 degrees Fahrenheit and has to have Mayan tuberose-scented candles on display. Vacuuming can't happen near his room either when he's in there.

28. Steven Tyler

Tyler admitted to being a diva, Tyler claimed, "I would take the local promoter's rep into the dressing room, and he'd say, 'Well, there's the 6-foot mirror you requested, Steven.' And I'd say, 'I can see the mirror all right, but where the f**k's the 3-foot razor blade?" At least he can admit to being totally inappropriate...

29. Adam Lambert

After shooting to fame from American Idol, Lambert has got himself into a bit of trouble. From requesting high-priced tequila and local honey to asking people to not walk near him so he could have his own space, Lambert admitted, "a diva is just somebody that's demanding. A little crazy. Not in touch with reality. I'm not like that I don't like to be treated special".

30. Simon Cowell

It comes as no surprise that British born Simon Cowell is a bit of a diva behind the scenes. From demanding hot baths to long naps, the judge has been accused of being a complete diva and difficult to work with. He's even asked for cameras to be moved so the hot light doesn't shine on him.

31. Salma Hayek

image source:
Apparently this actress specifically requests people not to look her in the eye on set... and then will throw a tantrum if someone ignores that rule. To take it one step further, she then demands the person in question be fired - or she won't continue the job until they are.

32. Ariana Grande

image source:
Ariana usually has a great public image, and many loyal fans - but this started to come apart when she was apparently recorded saying that she hates Americans! This comment came after she spied donuts in a donut shop... not really sure why that's exclusive to Americans, or seen as an issue, but whatever.

33. Teri Hatcher

image source:
The actress and Desperate Housewives star always seems like she's a great laugh, but actually, as it turns out, she's been called a bit of a diva on set... leading many people not to want to work with her. One of her Desperate Housewives co-stars called her the "meanest" woman in the world - giving Ellen a run for her money!

34. Madonna

image source:
In Madonna's defence, she's had an amazing career and a unique life - there's only one Madonna and she knows how popular she is, so you might say a 'complex' is a natural thing. But she's definitely been called a diva over the years, and that doesn't seem to be changing anytime soon.

35. Naomi Campbell

image source:
Naomi is one of the most famous and successful supermodels in the world, so you might expect a little bit of a 'diva' attitude. Well, apparently that is indeed the case. She's well aware of her fame, fortune and influence and she holds onto that, no matter how many younger, new models walk onto the scene.

36. Beyonce

image source:
She is the Queen B, after all, so a queen is expected to have some sort of complex. You could say she was born to be a diva, and that's certainly the impression she gives from her stage presence, massive music productions and iconic outfit choices - all of that has to take a little bit of diva planning!

37. Christina Aguilera

image source:
Another famous singer considered to be a diva is Christina Aguilera, and there's no doubt her recognisable voice has been knocking it out of the park from a young age. She's not only famous for singing, but for being a diva, too, it would seem - but it's more acceptable when you're actually talented.

38. Kim Kardashian

image source:
If there's anyone you might be expect to be a diva, it's got to be at least one of the Kardashians. And Kim fits the bill - because it seems like no matter what else is going on, she's always in the spotlight for something. With a rich and influential family to boot - diva material.

39. Anna Wintour

image source:
Anna Wintour is a powerhouse of a business woman, and that kind of reputation has to come with a little diva-ness - and especially in the fashion world. You might call her a diva, but she isn't backing down any time soon, because she definitely has talent - and definitely knows what she's talking about.

40. Jennifer Lopez

image source:
J-Lo's reputation seems to be going more downhill over the years in regard to her diva-ness - it seems more and more stories are coming out about her demanding ways. And there's just a weird vibe about some photos of her and Ben Affleck sometimes... but anyway. Though she used to be Jenny from the block, she certainly isn't anymore!

41. Oprah Winfrey

image source:
Oprah Winfrey has long been considered the woman who rules the world - she came from nothing to pretty much everything, she's Hollywood royalty. She has a lot of money and a lot of influence, and most people stop to listen to what she has to say. Her assertive attitude can have some labelling her a 'diva' - but she knows what she wants!

42. Barbra Streisand

image source:
When famous actress Barbra Streisand is traveling the world to perform on stage or screen, she apparently has a very specific set of demands - and she likes to get her way. That being said, you can't fault her for getting what she wants because she's a famous talent, that's for sure.

43. Cher

image source:
When you look at Cher, she just looks like a diva - her makeup, her face, her amazing costumes. She's earned her reputation with an amazing career of acting and singing. There's certainly nobody else like Cher, and she uses this power to get what she wants!

44. Lady Gaga

image source:
Lady Gaga always seems like a more down to earth celebrity, so she might not be the first you expect to be labelled a 'diva'. But she's become more and more famous, now with movie roles, so it's no surprise that 'diva' attitude might have slipped in every now and then...

45. Tyra Banks

image source:
Just like Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks is another famous supermodel who knows what she wants - and how to get it. She's definitely made her mark in the industry, and she's definitely not one to keep her thoughts to herself. Her assertive, diva attitude is why fans love her, though!

46. Angelina Jolie

image source:
Angelina Jolie is one of the biggest actresses in Hollywood, and she's also one who has used her money and influence to support good causes - as well as a successful acting career. That doesn't mean fame hasn't gone to her head, though, as she certainly has influence - and knows how to use it.

47. Caitlyn Jenner

image source:
Caitlyn Jenner is also part of one of the most famous and influential families in the world - and surrounded by all her diva daughters, there's no surprise that might rub off on her a little. Not only that, but her now owning her womanhood certainly means some diva qualities might come into play!

48. Rihanna

image source:
Rihanna is definitely someone you'd think of when you think of 'attitude' - in the best possible way, of course. As well as dominating the music scene, she's also moved into movies in recent years. She has been known to show a bit of an 'ego' - but she's earned it, and fans love her!

49. Wendy Williams

image source:
Wendy Williams is a famous talk show queen, and a lot of her popularity comes from her dramatic, diva personality - so we're not complaining. She's known for saying exactly what she thinks on her show, and not really caring much for how it might affect others!

50. Paris Hilton

image source:
Paris Hilton is probably the socialite, and most people know exactly who she is. Paris Hilton's diva personality can't really be blamed on her, though - she was born a millionaire, and led a life of success handed to her on a plate, with looks to boot. Of course she's going to be a bit of a diva!
