Chace Crawford Arrested For Possession of Marijuana

Do Actors' Personal Lives Affect How You View Their Work?

Chace Crawford had a real-life OMG moment this week when he was arrested for possession of marijuana. The folks at the CW will undoubtedly be displeased with the actor's behavior, and it's going to be hard for me not to think about this goofy mug shot when the show returns in September — much like how the world poked a lot of fun at Shia LaBeouf after his Walgreens encounter back in 2007. (The hilarious mug shot may have had something to do with it).

The trouble making boys aren't the only ones who call unwanted attention to themselves. Just this week Katherine Heigl also continued to put her foot in her mouth, mentioned that she sometimes says stupid things to relate better to other people (whatever that means). Heigl has definitely lost some fans thanks to her various off set interviews, but where do you stand? Does the personal life of an actor affect how you view his or her work?

I agree with some of the others who says it depends on what the actor did. My opinion of people like Heigl, Alec Baldwin, Charlie Sheen, etc. is definitely colored by how they act outside of their roles.

If I know more about their personal life than their work, yes it does affect the way I view their work. In Labaf and Crafword's case, they are not really too out there. Their work usually speak more than their personal lives. But in Lindsay Lohan's case, I know more about her personal life than her work. Also, if they did something really bad, like Brown beating Rihan, then it does affects the way I look at them.

Depends. If the actor is accused of violence or something along those lines then it distracts me. But I expect the Hollywood scene to party hard so someone getting caught for smoking pot is no big deal.

depends on the actor and what they did.

I really couldn't care less about the actors and their personal lives, what they've done wrong or who they're dating--any of that. I watch TV shows and movies for the stories and the entertainment they provide me, and what an actor does outside of that has no effect on my enjoyment.

What Shia & Chace did, does not affect how i see the characters they portray. Heigl on the other hand, always puts her foot in her mouth. Dominic has a point, she comes across as ungrateful, which we, as movie goers, view her actions & she loses her fan base.

Doesn't Chace's character on GG smoke pot? Not saying that its an excuse, but its not like it was shocking. Maybe if he played a goody good character then it would be a little more of a distraction come fall, but since he doesn't it won't effect the way I view him as Nate.

I might lose respect for a certain actor or actress, depending what he or she did. However, that in no way affects their talent. Assuming, of course, they were talented to begin with.
