Some documents in this world are of undeniable importance: the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights and more recently, AskMen’s Top 99 Women of 2011 list.
This year’s list, which marks the 10th anniversary of the hottie countdown, has some familiar faces on it, including Beyonce and Angelina Jolie, who have made the list every year since its inception.
Many of our most-beloved beauties, however, didn’t even crack the top 50, leaving plenty of room for newcomers, including ‘Mad Men‘ star Jessica Pare and new mom Miranda Kerr, filling in the top 10 and top five spots, respectively.
It was none other than ‘Gossip Girl‘ star Blake Lively who earned this year’s top spot on the list, with ‘Black Swan’ beauty Mila Kunis and ‘Modern Family’ vixen Sofia Vergara rounding out the top three.
Lively, whose transformation from Upper East Side socialite Serena van der Woodsen to an Oxycontin-addicted single mom in gritty crime drama ‘The Town’ earned her critical praise, shot up the list this year, moving up from her number 85 ranking in 2010.
In addition to a number of new faces on the list, like Nicki Minaj, a number of AskMen favorites appeared in the ranks, including Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks, star of Kanye West’s ‘Runaway,’ who earned the number four position, mom-to-be Natalie Portman, who comes in at number 11, and 10-year list vet Gisele, who takes the number 34 spot.
Filling out the top 10 are familiar faces Cheryl Cole, Scarlett Johansson, Katy Perry and Anne Hathaway, who took spots six through nine.
There is a new celebrity drug scandal every few months so since the latest one involves Miley Cyrus has just been caught smoking a bong, The Frisky have come up with 13 other celebrities that have been caught doing a bit of drugs.
OK, I kind of have to give it up for the headline “Harry Pothead.” A 2009 cover of London’s Daily Mail featured a big old photo of Daniel Radcliffe, his face painted, puffing on what they claim is a joint. The shot was taken at a party held at his sometime-girlfriend’s apartment, and a fellow party-goer totally narc-ed on him. “Daniel was laughing and seemed to find it funny,” she said. “But he didn’t really look like he knew what was going on.” Daniel’s camp is, of course, rushing to his defense. “We categorically deny the allegations regarding Daniel Radcliffe published in today’s Daily Mirror,” his publicist said. “Daniel does smoke the occasional roll-up cigarette, but he was not doing anything more than this.”
In 2008, TMZ posted a pic of Kristen Stewart smoking what they alleged was a bowl.
In 2004, The National Enquirer had a fruit of a story—Charlize Theron smoking what appeared to be pot out of an apple. Her camp had no comment on the images.
Everyone thought Kate Moss’s career was over when images of her cutting lines of cocaine appeared on the cover of The Daily Mail in 2005. But this girl has more lives than a cat. After an apology and stint in rehab, she came back—landing a cover of Vanity Fair and more campaigns than ever.
The video never surfaced—which makes us a little suspect that it never existed. But in 2008, The National Enquirer claimed to have gotten its hand on a video of Angelina Jolie snorting coke and doing heroin in the ‘90s. In the footage, she supposedly says, “Wow, this is really good smack—not that cheap crap that’s been stepped on.”
In 2007, paparazzi caught Mischa Barton puffing on a rolled item in the driver’s seat of her car. It was almost like foreshadowing—a year later she was arrested for possession and driving under the influence of marijuana.
This is strange. A full month before that nakey tape of Rebecca Gayheart, Eric Dane, and Kari Ann Peniche appeared on the internet, the National Enquirer ran a picture of Rebecca, before she met Eric, naked in the bathtub with another woman, holding what is allegedly a crack pipe and lighter.
A few days after Paris Hilton told Larry King that she’d never done drugs, a video clip of her supposedly smoking a pipe in an Amsterdam hash bar popped up on the internet. Here’s a still shot.
It’s actually hard to count the number of times Amy Winehouse has been caught on camera puffing on what sure looks like a joint. This is just one example
Michael Phelps went the apology route hardcore when News of the World revealed a picture of him smoking a bong at a party in 2008.
In 2007, a “friend” of Lindsay Lohan’s released a tape that supposedly shows her snorting coke in the bathroom stall of a New York bathroom.
The Blemish posted oodles of pix of Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore sharing what appears to be a joint on vacation in Hawaii in 2007.
In 2009, Zac Braff was photographed in a New York club doing a little puff puff of something.
I find it funny how most of these celebrities were caught just smoking weed,

Chelsea Handler is not a fan of Angelina Jolie, in fact she pretty much hates her. During one of her comedy shows on Friday night Chelsea, who is friends with Jennifer Aniston, went on a mad rant about Angelina. Take a look at the video below to see for yourself.
In the video you can hear Chelsea calling Angelina a homewrecker, a bitch and my favorite word of all time – a cunt. Chelsea then took to her Twitter account and wrote “I have been making fun of angelina jolie for years. Period.”
Chelsea Handler better watch herself, we all know how crazy the Angelina Jolie stans are.
I know people joke all the time about celebrities being insane and batshit crazy, but there are some celebrities who have genuine mental illnesses, PopCrunch have come up with a list of 13 celebrities that you may or may not know that have one.
The first person who comes to mind when we think of celebrities with mental illness is definitely former pop princess Britney Spears. After the ravages of… whatever it is that she has. Although Spears has never been officially diagnosed with either bipolar, schizophrenia or depression, there’s much speculation surrounding her battle with these diseases from both the public and her own friends. Tabloids will be tabloids, but something is clearly wrong when an individual’s own friends and family are convinced of the undiagnosed problem based on their own interactions. After a meltdown in 2008, Spears shaved her head and was committed to a mental health facility for an evaluation. Her bizarre and reckless behavior cost her the custody of her own children and earned her a court ordered conservatorship, given to her father. Her weird antics include (but are absolutely not limited to) attacking a paparazzo’s car with an umbrella, donning wigs and speaking in foreign accents at random, endangering the safety of her children in a myriad of ways, and stripping naked in public.
Jean Claude Van Damme
Big screen badass Jean Claude Van Damme was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 1997 after a short stint in rehab for cocaine addiction and a realization that his career was beginning to decline. Considering suicide, the actor opted to seek help instead; his diagnosis resulted in a prescription of sodium valproate, a drug Van Damme calls “that simple salt.” Van Damme’s early career was filled with karate training — without it, he says, he would have plummeted into an irreconcilable depression. Regarding his medication, Van Damme has said “You just have to take a little salt, and since I’m doing that it’s, like, BOOM! In one week, I felt it kick in. All the commotion around me, all the water around me, moving left and right around me, became like a lake.”
Former rapper, now meth connoisseur, DMX has been completely ravaged by drug addiction and mental illness. The only artist to have his first two albums debut at number one, DMX branched out into acting and considerably expanded his career — and bank account — by doing so. DMX was reluctant to speak about his illness in an interview with Blender mag, and only admitted to ever acknowledging it when reminded of one of his own songs: “Listed as a manic depressive with extreme paranoia/And dog, I got something for ya/Hear my name, feel my pain . . . ” Besides this admission, DMX has never spoken out about his struggle with bipolar disorder. He grew up partially in an abusive household and spent the rest of his developmental life in and out of foster homes. Although he seemed to overcome his problems after becoming a multi-millionaire celebrity, he now continues to fall deeper into obscurity after being arrested multiple times on drug charges. Not only has he tried to buy weed and cocaine from an undercover officer, but DMX even tried to convince someone he was an FBI agent and needed the victim’s car for some top secret FBI business. He’s now been arrested so many times that it’s hard to keep track, but the sad progression of his mugshots tell more of a story than any police report ever could — his physical health has clearly declined with each offense, chronicling the disintegration of a once admirable individual.
Halle Berry publicly admitted attempting suicide after divorcing from baseball superstar David Justice, but stopped when she “had an image of [her] mother finding [her].” Berry says her sense of self-worth was so low, she tried to suffocate herself with carbon monoxide in the garage of her house. Her tumultuous relationship with Justice wasn’t the only unhealthy one to effect her negatively — Berry says that she attended sex rehab with her husband after being married for only one year. Singer Eric Benet had a serious cheating problem, and Berry claims to have “put his needs before her own” instead of leaving him like she should have. Although the silver screen sex pot has moved onto greener pastures with model boyfriend Gabriel Audry, she’s said she will “never, ever get married again.”
The daughter of a mentally ill widow, Marilyn Monroe was left to cold and uncaring foster homes in her youth. She was attacked at the age of six and barely escaped sexual assault. An extremely intelligent and cultured individual, Monroe didn’t let her hardships growing up stop her from becoming one of the most successful and historically significant celebrities of all time. At the height of her success, Monroe began abusing sleeping pills and alcohol. Her work ethic declined along with her health, especially when she suffered from a number of miscarriages in the 60s. A divorce, the death of a friend, tumultuous affairs, and dismissal from a large motion picture role for poor attendance all contributed further to her depression. Monroe was admitted to an institution for mental evaluation and was released after only a short time — but never returned to filming. She would be found alongside two empty sleeping pill bottles only two months later.
Renowned singer Billy Joel’s fame wasn’t enough to pull him from diagnosed depression, and he tried to kill himself by drinking furniture polish because “it looked tastier than bleach.” Also an alcoholic, Joel has been in and out of rehab for the addiction which has made him sick on numerous occasions. It’s unclear which came first — the alcoholism or the depression — but one hand certainly washes the other.
One of the most influential political figures of her time, Diana both purposely and inadvertently changed the world around her. The princess struggled with bulimia for over a decade, and when it became a public fact the number of bulimic women seemed to spike — prompting speculation that it was a ‘Diana Effect.’ Her problem began after tabloids criticized her appearance as ‘pudgy’; Diana’s choice to diet quickly spiraled out of control and left the beautiful princess unable to control her self destructive eating habits. After her death, tapes were released in which Diana spoke not only about her battle with bulimia, but multiple suicide attempts and depression as well.
Handsome actor Heath Ledger died a tragic and untimely death when he overdosed on drugs during the filming of The Dark Knight (errr, The Imaginarium of doctor Parnassus?) . Ledger had been suffering from depression, anxiety, and, as a result of the two, sleep deprivation. There is speculation over whether his death was suicidal or accidental, but most see it as a tragic accident. Ledger’s problems were apparently exacerbated by his stressful role as evil villain The Joker. Former Joker Jack Nicholson even said he warned Ledger, but later claimed it was in regards to taking the drug Ambien. Ledger himself, however, admitted that the role was ‘physically and emotionally draining’, leaving him unable to sleep but a measly two hours per night.
In 2005, insanely insecure boxing legend Mike Tyson says of himself: “I’ll never be happy. I believe I’ll die alone. I would want it that way. I’ve been a loner all my life with my secrets and my pain. I’m really lost, but I’m trying to find myself. I’m really a sad, pathetic case.” Once an undefeated heavyweight champion, Tyson struggled with depression and severe insecurities since childhood. Even now, recalling the hurtful actions of his childhood bullies brings tears to his eyes as he forces out a choked threat directed at anyone who might attempt to harm him. Tyson’s career was lost to rampant indulgence, depression and distraction from his beloved sport after the death of his trainer and mentor. Tyson is notorious for having an awful temper, he’s been known to absolutely lose it in public. Even one comment like the one in this video sends Tyson into a screaming rage.
Queens-born business mogul Donald Trump has more problems than his silly haircut; he’s absolutely terrified of germs. Trump refuses to shake hands and press elevator buttons. Trump says, “I’m going to do everything in my power not to shake hands with teachers. They have 17,000 germs per square inch on their desk. That’s ten times the germ rate of those in other professions. It’s absolutely swarming with germs.” Trump hasn’t been officially diagnosed with the illness, but these signs of extreme cleanliness definitely support a case of OCD.
Angeline Jolie, now a world famous actress and political advocate, was once a moody gothic teen who used to cut herself during bouts of depression. She’s still a little wacky, and reportedly keeps an imaginary friend with whom she has nightly consultations about her daily trials and tribulations. Jolie’s bodyguard reported that her frequent meltdowns and ridiculous demands were the makeup of a self-centered and psychotic woman, and went so far as to call her mentally abusive. Jolie’s own father has spoken out about her depression, although Jolie was estranged from him at the time for a number of reasons.
It’s a little unclear whether Courtney Love is wasted all the time, mentally ill, or both. Her ridiculous antics often earn her a place on celebrity news sites, and her erratic behavior has caused many a problem with both individuals and businesses. From carelessly starting a cigarette related fire in her favorite London hotel, to making nonsensical misspelled tweets about lawsuits and hating Lily Allen, Love never fails to make a scene. She’s been to both overeaters’ and shopaholics’ anonymous meetings, struggled with drug addiction, and lost custody of her child after accusations of neglect and abuse.
Rock star David Bowie had a family history of mental illness — his three aunts suffered various ailments. One was diagnosed with depression, another with schizophrenia, and the third was actually given a lobotomy for ‘bad nerves.’ Additionally, Bowie’s brother committed suicide by lying down on some railroad tracks after sneaking out of a mental institution. Bowie was said to have frequent breakdowns in which he would cry uncontrollably, but refused to see a psychiatrist for fear of what he’d discover.
Eminem also suffers from depression and apparently he is bipolar too. I did not write any of those descriptions so don’t start riding my dick over it if you are offended.

Angelina Jolie did an interview for the Charlie Rose show back in 2000 to promote “Girl, Interrupted” and now her former drug dealer says that she was on cocaine the whole time.
Watch the video above and it’s pretty obvious that she is definitely after doing a bit of coke before the interview, especially at the beginning you can see she is out of it. Now as we all know Angelina has not been shy about shooting up with heroin in the past so I’m kind of confused why her former dealer is coming forward now.
Franklin Meyer, her dealer, says “We’d see each other two to three times a week when she was in town. She would buy cocaine and also heroin, she would generally spend about $100 each time — that would buy maybe half a gram of coke and a 10th of a gram of heroin. She would snort the cocaine and the heroin in front of me. It didn’t seem to matter to her who else was there.”
Apparently the pair met back in 1997 at the Chelsea Hotel and that is when he became her dealer on a regular basis. He also says she had pictures of dead bodies up on her wall.
None of this shocks me, I don’t know why magazines would even pay a dealer money to be told crap like this. We all know that she loves drugs already.
