Celebrities Can Get Away With Doing These at Work (But You Can't)
You know those tabloid features that proclaim, “Celebrities: They’re just like us!” based solely on the fact that some A-lister was spotted shopping for toilet paper?
Well, it’s not true. Celebrities can pull stunts at work that would get the Average Joe fired in a heartbeat. Here are a few.
Being drunk on the job. Pat Sajak, long-running host of Wheel of Fortune, recently admitted in an interview with ESPN that in the early days of the game show, he and co-host Vanna White would have “two or three or six” margaritas between tapings, then come back “and have trouble recognizing the alphabet.” While he has since walked back those claims a bit, he’s hardly the only big name in the entertainment industry to drink on the job: Various actors have admitted being drunk on-screen, including Martin Sheen in one iconic scene from Apocalypse Now (though you could probably chalk that one up to method acting). You may feel that you’re destined to be a Hollywood star, but try this stunt at the office and you’ll be lucky to get off with a warning from HR.
