Dear Poll: If You Had to Be a Hollywood Trainwreck

Hollywood wouldn’t be what it is today without celebrity trainwrecks. Since the motion picture industry started, there have always been personal disasters and demons. From Marilyn Monroe to Howard Hughes, River Phoenix to Winona Ryder, the specter of drugs, gambling, affairs, murder, and mental illness has been public and painful. And how many of us haven't made a series of bad choices, or gone through a period of spectacularly difficult consequences due to our weaknesses, ignorance or plain, old-fashioned inexperience?

If you had to be a very public trainwreck for a little while, if your only choices weren't good ones, which celebrity would it be?

Nicole just doesn't seem as totally far gone as the others. There's a chance that she can change things

"And how many of us haven't made a series of bad choices, or gone through a period of spectacularly difficult consequences due to our weaknesses, ignorance or plain, old-fashioned inexperience?"

I couldn't do any of these people. I would never want their fame. Maybe Britney. I would get myself the help I needed, buy a nice wig and scurry back to live in Kentwood, or some other relatively small town, with the boys. Paps would probably leave me alone after a few weeks of doing nothing but cleaning house and taking care of the kids because that wouldn't sell papers after very long, and I would be perfectly content to not ever have to do her job ever again.

Lindsey all the way. I think she's talented, she's made her money on her own, she's young enough to turn it all around, and she's not dragging a couple kids through it. lol @ marci!

Nicole Richie... she seems like she has a bit of a sense of humor (I think you'd have to, to be friends with Paris, though I think I'd drop that friendship...) and besides, I like the tattoo'd guys too...

Nicole Ritchie...she has had some serious problems, but she still isn't out of her mind. She has a good personality and seems like a pretty cool person actually...

I pick Nicole Richie- she isnt THAT bad (compared to some other choices). But after thinking about it, I think I would actually be Britney- I think she has alot of people rooting for her well being.

This is hard. Nicole Richie up until the driving incident. How about a female version of Hugh Grant who came out so well after his scandal?

I guess Nicole Richie. She seems to have a really light side to her, which I can't say for the others.

I'd have to go with Britney. She's definately not so far gone that she can't turn her life around (I hope). Either that or L.Lo.
