However, some stars just make flat out stupid decisions €“ Paul McCartney once tried to walk through Japanese customs with a bag of weed the size of a throw cushion stuffed into his suitcase. He had already been denied access to the country for past drug offences a few years beforehand, something that grants an immediate full luggage search upon arrival at any Japanese airport. They found the weed and he wound up stewing in a shared cell for 9 days. He was interrogated daily and narrowly escaped 7 years of hard labour, thanks in part to his fame and some swift intervention from the British embassy. To this day he doesn't know why he did it, but maintains it was the most terrifying thing he's ever been through. There are are some celebrities, (actors especially) who wind up behind bars more often than not, and most film fans can name a few obscure names and their associated crimes, but there are still some of them out there with pasts that may shock even the initiated. Here are 10 of them.
