Although many Hollywood movies feature steamy sex scenes between actors, it’s pretty obvious that these exchanges of on-screen intimacy are highly choreographed. Sex scenes in movies and TV rarely mirror the events of real sexual encounters – they’re usually more fantasy than anything else. And while that’s a pretty vulnerable thing for an actor to do, there’s still a fair amount of separation between the character they’re playing and their real identity. That’s why it can be so shocking when a movie or TV star’s sex tape is leaked to the public – and like the Hulu miniseries Pam and Tommy shows us, this can have irrevocable consequences on his career.
Of course, the leaked sex tapes aren’t limited to just movie and TV actors. There are many rock stars who have been victims of sex tape scandals, not to mention high profile celebrities such as Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian. Either way, the details surrounding the tape can get messy. Was the tape ever destined to see the light of day? Has anyone posted it without a participant’s permission? Each case is different and involves issues of confidentiality and free will.
Below, we’ve rounded up 10 sextape scandals involving famous actors that have made their way into the mainstream. You might even be surprised to see some of the household names on this list. Find out what happened, how the stars reacted, and what the ultimate long-term consequences were.
