Everybody knows that work can be stressful. Regardless of your job, it’s really easy to feel overwhelmed during a bad day. Even celebrities, whose jobs often look like the most fun in the world, are subject to falling victim to work related stress. Unfortunately for them; however, when they feel stressed at work, it’s often in front of a camera. As a result, many actors have had their meltdowns well documented as the world watched them break down. In some cases, these moments can be funny, while in others, they are downright sad. Either way, having a meltdown in front of a bunch of people doesn’t sound like very much fun. Here are 5 celebrities notorious for completely losing it on set.
