Hulk Hogan
Not everyone should make a sex tape and these celebrities aren't any different. Apparently in Hollywood, some celebrities have more money than brains and we're here to point out these fools for our own amusement (and yours).

Maybe these select few rich people should've reconsidered before pressing record on the video camera?

Hulk Hogan

Hulk Hogan's sex tape hit the internet with a fury back in 2012. It was 30 minutes long and featured his best friend's wife, Heather Clem. Clips of the tape spawned a lawsuit against Gawker Media for publishing it on the internet. It was so strange t...

And although this isn't the case with all of Hollywood, there are a few we like to call Celebrity Serial Daters.

Hancock
This isn't to bash rappers, nor is it to say that these artists aren't allowed to pursue different paths in Hollywood. With so many prominent rappers acquiring roles in big movies though, it begs the question-why?

It's not as if rappers in movies are a new thing. In 1991, Mario Van Peebles cast Ice-T as a cop in "New Jack City," a film that is beloved by many. That same year, director John Singleton cast Ice Cube as a Los Angeles gangbanger in "Boyz N the Hood." These two movies helped open the floodgates for rappers to enter the world of acting.

Soon, Will Smith went from rap...
