Has Young Hollywood Hit an All Time Low?

Teen and twenty-something celebs have always had their run of the Hollywood scene but lately it seems like things are really getting out of control. Nicole was supposedly back in rehab last week, Paris might be going to jail...and over the holiday weekend things just got worse with Mischa's collapse and Lindsay's arrest for DUI and cocaine. In fact, it has been confirmed that Lindsay is definitely back in rehab for the second time this year. Compared to everyone else, Britney looks like she's really got it together. It seems as if times are changing since stars like Julia Roberts and Gwyneth Paltrow were the role models of today. So what do you think, has young Hollywood hit an all time low?

Sure Hollywood has always had its closets, its secret debauchery and pathology. But they enough sense to do it behind closed doors. And at least their weren't flashing their tw*ats around town repeatedly. Hey, we all party, get drunk, make mistakes, bad judgement calls. Do you see Avril Lavigne, Mandy Moore, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, et al ad nauseum do it in public?? So it's not about "how bad the paparazzi is today". These girls go out and get illegally stoned and drunk and get behind the wheels of their cars, pass out and puke in public places, and then say it's about the paprazzi. Show a little frikken personal responsability. I've gotten drink and puked in public before. Once. I learned my lesson. It's not that hard a lesson to learn. Britney is the mother of 2 and divorced. She is supposed to be an adult. Put on a bra, buy some pants and t-shirts and push a stroller every once and a while if you want to be taken seriously as an adult and responsible mother.

I think if I didn't have things like bills, school and work to keep me grounded, I would probably go nucking futs too! Just imagine having no worries and more than enough money to have everything you wanted! The world would look entirely different! Sometimes, I'm thankful that I'm a normal girl...

there are no more role models. they're just young girls who want to "live their lives" and unfortunately, the world is watching and other younger girls are just copying these people who don't want to be idolized. it's sad because they're apathetic of the influence they have, always relying on their excuse that they're young and want to have fun.

I really can not group Mischa with the rest, she had a mishap this weekend, but look who she was with. She can at least look classy at times.The rest are just useless, including Britney.

it seems awful that these young girls do not realize how much of an influence they have on the generation of today too:(

They have everything a person could want, and yet they are self-destructing. It's sad in a way... I almost feel sorry for them, but they make it incredibly hard. I think they all have serious problems with their self-esteem, and they just need real true friends. We need to see more of Rachel Bilson, Natalie Portman, Jessica Biel... and pray that Hayden Panettiere (sp?) follows these beautiful and talented actresses!

it's pretty bad cause none of them sre really that special. they're just skinny people who are usually reasonably attractive and have very little talent, if any. they are ,ostly pathetic and keep shoving their faces down the oress's throats when no one really cares about them anymore. and what with their problems? tehy have money. if i was given that much money iw ouldn't screw my life up like they do. i have honestly no sympathy for these people. they screwed up they're own lives, no one did it for them.

Natalie Portman, Kate Hudson, Scarjo, those are actresses, these girls are wannabes

they don't need help for drugs and alcohol. they're just doing all of that so they can be on the front covers of all the tabloids. how else could they be famous? by their talent? um. if you can't tell, the last thing was sarcasm. haha. homer simpson moment.

And cocca, being molested (IF THEY WERE, which I doubt) would be no excuse for Paris or Nicole's driving drunk, and Lindsay just being a complete waste.

The girls definitely need help. Nicole for her EA (nobody can deny it!) and Lindsay for her everything.

i'm wondering if these girls were molested in their childhoods... it's just not right how they seem to keep getting into trouble! yes, it's partly the media's fault, but girls like portman, johansen, beil, and even the olsen twins... you don't see them making a fool of themselves... every time i hear news about these girls, it doesn't even surprise me anymore... i just roll my eyes and say "go figure!". i'm just feeling really sorry like everyone else that teenage girls hears this shit and might think that that's what it takes to be cool and popular... they seriously need help...

The results speak for themselves. As much as I love the wholesome girls, they don't get ANY press being wholesome and all. Sucks...

I'm not sure if she's the exception, but I think it's a good point to bring up Gwyneth Paltrow who was in her early to mid 20s when her career started taking off. She carried herself in a dignified manner then and continues to do so. Granted nobody is perfect, but I've got to wonder why some people can handle stardom better than others.

COMPLETELY. I know things were bad in the past but people used to be ashamed if they were addicted/disordered/arrested. Now it just seems like a rite of passage.

A child's most important role model is the same sex parent. Parents need to talk with their daughters and sons about the behaviors of young celebrities. There are many positive role models out there. Unfortunately, behaving oneself and doing the right thing rarely makes the gossip pages. Children who are grounded in reality and common sense can enjoy the celebrities without emulating them.

i'm amazed at how far they've gone. shouldn't lindsay been in trouble with the law for being under 21, a long time ago? these girls need help, asap. also, they shouldn't be famous for being such delinquents, either.
