When celebrities behave badly, we usually chalk it up to youth and immaturity. We see the 20- and 30-somethings act out now and then and figure they'll outgrow these (hopefully) temporary acts of random brain farts. It's just part of the growing-up process... we think.

Yet these post 50 celebrities show wisdom doesn't necessary come with age. Sometimes midlife can present some situations that stir up the pot, leading to lapses in judgment -- that vary in severity -- that would make even Lindsay Lohan (on a good day) gasp. So we're going to run down our Top 9 list of celebrities who took a turn for the worse -- for a few minutes -- this year. (Exception alert: There is one on this list who is under 50, but it's an important lesson. You'll see.)
