Hollywood stars with shocking criminal records – It’s all too easy to only see the good side of our favourite celebrities. We want to admire their red carpet looks, watch their latest films or hear their latest albums, and perhaps take an interest in their love lives. We want the women to be gorgeous, the men ruggedly handsome, and the gossip as scandalous as possible. But in all of this, we tend to forget that our favourite stars sometimes have dark secrets – not all of them in the past.

15. Will Smith
Will Smith is probably one of the last people you would expect to have a criminal record – and even if he did, you’d think it would be for something cool, like getting arresting for protesting equal rights. Actually, his arrest record shows something far more serious. Back in 1989, he was involved in an assault which left one man nearly blind, and he was charged shortly after. The charges included aggravated assault, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, and criminal conspiracy. They were dismissed later, though in Hollywood, that’s not always a sign that he didn’t actually do anything wrong.
