Alec Baldwin just deleted his Twitter account following his drama with American Airlines. After getting kicked off of a flight for playing Words With Friends, Alec took to Twitter to bash the company, writing:
"Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving. #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt.”
It might be time for a Words With Friends intervention.
But Alec isn’t the first celeb with airplane drama, not by far. In fact, you haven’t made it in Hollywood until a flight attendant has said, “buh bye!” to you before the plane has taken off. Getting kicked off planes (or almost getting kicked off) seems to be the latest Hollywood trend. Here are 10 celebs who have had airplane drama:
Josh Duhamel: Josh, you might have a pretty face, but your in-flight attitude is just plane ugly. After Duhamel refused to turn off his Blackberry, despite repeated requests by a flight attendant, he was escorted off of a flight from NYC to Kentucky. Passengers said he was “very rude” and also “taunting the attendant.” Duhamel admitted the experience was “not my favorite moment.”
Justin Bieber: The Biebs was reprimanded on a Qantas flight after he reportedly began “roaming the plane” as it taxied. He then started “acting like a child” and another attendant told him his behavior represented a “security risk.”
Brooke Mueller: On a flight out of LAX, Brooke Mueller told a flight attendant that she was about to vomit, but she was told to sit down because the plane was about to take off. According to Brooke, the attendant was rude and said “tough.” But according to a witness on the flight, Brooke was “belligerent and cussing out” the flight attendant. If anyone would have traveling meds to calm them down, you’d think it’d be Brooke Mueller.
Whitney Houston: Still whack after all these years. Whitney Houston was allegedly almost thrown off of a plane when she refused to fasten her seatbelt. Sources close to Houston said the singer “'overreacted a little bit after missing an earlier flight but she's still 100% sober and was on the way to Detroit for her first day of shooting a new movie.”
Gerard Depardieu: They might as well delete all of the info on Gerard’s imdb page and replace it with: “The dude that peed on the plane.” The Golden Globe winner had to go to the bathroom on a flight from Paris to Dublin but was told that he had to wait for the plane to take off first. So Gerard got pissed off. Literally. A spokeswoman for Air-France addressed the rumor: “I will only confirm that he, in effect, urinated in the plane.”
Billie Joe Armstrong: In September, the Green Day front man says he was kicked off of a Southwest Airlines flight for wearing his pants too low. He tweeted: "Just got kicked off a southwest flight because my pants sagged too low! What the f-ck? No joke!” Uh, if we’re going to police Billie Joe’s fashion choices, shouldn’t we start with his guyliner?
Kevin Smith: Kevin Smith was kicked off a flight in 2010 for being overweight. The pilot said Smith was a “safety risk” because he was unable to put down the armrest. Smith Tweeted: “What, was I gonna roll on a fellow passenger?” He added: "You (messed) with the wrong sedentary processed-foods eater!"
Naomi Campbell: Talk about drama. In 2008, Campbell was arrested at Heathrow airport in London after suspicion of assaulting a police officer. Why? Because they lost one of her bags. Hey, one less thing she has to hit someone with.
Courtney Love: No surprise here. In 2003, Courtney Love was arrested at, again, Heathrow Airport after being “verbally abusive” to the cabin crew.
"She was having a row with one of the flight attendants," one passenger told reporters. "There were a lot of raised voicees. But Courtney Love is Courtney Love—I guess that’s rock ‘n’ roll.”
David Hasselhoff: Okay, Heathrow must be cursed. David Hasselhoff was barred from boarding a British Airways flight out of Heathrow back in 2006. He allegedly tried to board the plane while being sh-tfaced drunk. “He wasn’t aggressive,” a witness said. “He just had problems standing. He was clearly drunk.”
