The Best Drunk Celebrity Stories Pt. 1

There are two types of people in this world.

Those lucky ones who can down drink.. after drink.. after drink and seem no worse for the wear - and those who shouldn’t have taken that first sip. Whether you’re Babe Ruth hitting back-to-back homeruns, with a hangover and two hours of sleep, or David Hasselhoff inhaling a cheeseburger on the floor of his hotel bathroom while his daughter films, we’ve all been there before. Maybe not there exactly, but in a similarly drunken state that inevitably ends with one of the following phrases:

“What happened last night?”

“Did I really spend $40 at Taco Bell?”

Or the all too familiar: “I feel like death”

If any of this sounds remotely familiar, be happy that there isn’t a gaggle of paparazzi following your every bar hop. Some of these celebrities weren’t so lucky but seem happy to share their stories with the world. 


1. Robert Downey Jr.

Robert Downey Jr.

If you only know Robert Downey Jr. in his current incarnation as Iron Man box office king, then you are missing out on what a true miracle his current success is. Always an incredible actor, the star was so regularly in trouble with the law in the ’90s that he was briefly considered “uninsurable” for film productions. This reached a peak in 1996 when, already on parole for street racing and possession of narcotics and a handgun, the actor drunkenly fell asleep in not only the wrong bed, but the wrong house.  According to accounts, he stripped down to his chonies, folded his clothing neatly, and fell asleep in the empty bedroom of a neighbor’s child. Don’t worry: no harm was done. In fact, the bemused woman’s call to police was accompanied by the sound of the star’s loud snoring. These days, Downey is waking up in much nicer digs—that are all his own.

    Jennifer Lawrence takes a classier route in her story, until Miley Cyrus makes an appearance that is...

    "I've never gone out after Golden Globes or Oscars or anything there's this big, fancy Guy Oseary and Madonna party — if you get invited you're, like, super important. I'm just usually so sick of people by that point. But this time I was like, 'I'm going out.'
    I got so drunk that I puked on his porch. I was in such bad condition and I look behind me and Miley Cyrus is looking at me like, 'Get it together!'"

    You know you’re in trouble when the wrecking ball herself looks at you with judgment. However, this story about Seth Rogen’s drunken decision may take the cake - or should I say brownie?😏

    "I had a very early flight a few months ago and I was very hungover because I drink a lot sometimes. And in order to deal with the hangover I thought it'd be a really good idea early in the morning to eat a brownie that had some “herbal” components. That was probably a bad idea. Obviously, I'm going to say it was not a good idea combined with what I did next.

    I got to the airport and I was hungry, because I was hungover and I had eaten this brownie and the only thing in my terminal was a Burger King. And it's like 7 in the morning and I look and what they have new on the menu was something called an Angry Whopper ... I ordered the Angry Whopper ... I downed it fast, and then I got on the plane and I instantly fell asleep.

    So I was sleeping on the plane, I assume sweating like crazy, probably having a vivid dream, and I'm suddenly woken up by a flight attendant shaking me and she goes,

    "Sir, you've just had a seizure"

    I think,

    "Oh my god, did I just have a seizure?"

    Then she literally screams,


    To which a guy responds,

    "Yes, I'm a doctor"

    So, he starts running over to me and it's all happening so fast. The doctor is checking me out, and I'm embarrassed like I don't think I really had a seizure… As soon as we land the flight attendant comes up to me again and she goes,

    "We've landed, I want you to relax, the paramedics are here waiting for you."

    No joke, we get out of the plane and another paramedic comes up to me and goes,

    "The ambulance is at the curb waiting."

    They put a thing on my finger and it was like, "Beep, beep, beep," and I was like,

    "Oh no."

    And at that moment, I pulled the thing off my finger and I said, 

    "Everyone relax, I did not have a seizure, I had a marijuana brownie and an Angry Whopper."

    —Seth Rogen, on Conan
