Celebrities may own the fanciest cell phones on the market, but they don’t always display the finest cell phone behavior. From texting while flying to sexting their sweethearts, find out which celebrities committed the biggest cell phone faux pas in 2010.
Josh Duhamel and Katherine McPhee: Apparently thinking rules for mere mortals do not apply to Hollywood celebrities, actor Josh Duhamel refused to stop texting on an airplane. Despite a flight attendant’s repeated requests for the “Transformers” star to turn off his cell phone, Duhamel persisted and had to be escorted off the plane by airport security. Duhamel’s arrogant airplane textiquette came soon after American Idol singer Katharine McPhee tweeted on an airplane, a boast later denied by her rep after McPhee tasted egg on her face.
Miley Cyrus: En route to a massage, Miley Cyrus was stopped by a cop in North Hollywood for talking on her cell phone while driving. Her unlawful behavior rubbed the police officer the wrong way. The former Disney star may have only been modeling herself after California’s first lady, Maria Shriver, who was video-taped by TMZ three times chatting on her cell phone while driving (the Kennedy cousin later apologized and donated her cell phone to a woman’s shelter).
Brett Favre: Although a still unproven story about football star Brett Favre sending lewd messages and photos of his private parts to New York Jets hostess Jenn Sterger allegedly occurred in 2008, news about Favre’s possible cell phone shenanigans broke in 2010, launching a big NFL investigation. In Favre’s defense, celebrity rapper and entrepreneur Diddy, a self-proclaimed “sex texter,” told late-night talk show host David Letterman, “This (sexting) is a relationship that men and women have had since the beginning of mobile devices.”
Jessica Alba and Kat Denning: In another sexting case, revealing photos Jessica Alba sent to her husband, Cash Warren-shot at the end of her pregnancy or soon after-were leaked to the public, expanding the image of the “Sin City” and “Little Fockers” star. Alba’s overexposure followed on the heels of actress Kat Denning’s (“The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” “House Bunny”) leaked nude cell phone photos, as reported by The New York Daily News.
As long as there are cell phones, there will be celebrity cell phone snafus. Still, it’s too bad these celebs don’t have mothers like that of tweenster Justin Bieber. The pop-singer’s mom reportedly took away Bieber’s cell phone recently for unknown misbehavior, possibly not even related to his cell phone use.
