14 Embarrassing, Desperate, Or Downright Sad Celebrity Moments To Make You Cringe

Celebrities are just like us, in that, occasionally, they're irredeemably awful and need to just slink away from society for a decade or two. Celebrities are masters of eliciting emotion. Fear, sadness, lust, excitement, even joy. Sometimes though, celebrities draw out different emotions than they probably intended. Sometimes, even our favorite celebs can do things that are embarrassing, desperate, or just downright sad enough to make us cringe.

It's not easy to be mega-famous, charismatic, and rich. Okay, maybe not that easy. The fact is, constant stress, scrutiny, and pressure can make even the best of us crack.

For example, no one saw the steamy canoodling-sesh between Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders (Director of Snow White and the Huntsman) coming. Least of all Robert Pattinson or Sanders' wife. Needless to say, the event not only blew up in the news, it also detonated their respective relationships.
