Not only is Rock of Ages tanking at the box office, it looks like the stars of the flick are all having a rough 2012 as well!
Russell Brand, Mary J. Blige and Tom Cruise are some of the stars who would probably like to give this year a do-over. From divorces and nasty scandals to charity fraud and assault charges, all within a matter of months, we can't help but wonder if there's a curse on this movie!
Let's take a look at some of the difficulties these Rock of Ages celebs have faced so far this year.
Tom Cruise: Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that his wife Katie Holmes just filed for divorce after more than five years of marriage. Even worse for Tom, Katie is gunning for sole custody of their six-year-old daughter Suri and has already spouted accusations of Scientology officials following her every move!
Mary J. Blige: The R&B diva has seen her charity to empower women thrown under the bus after they went broke, faced a lawsuit over a $250,000 loan that was never paid back and had several scholarship recipients nearly drop out of school after the money the charity promised them was never delivered! If that's not bad enough, her commercial for Burger King chicken last April proved to be the racial scandal of the decade so far.
Russell Brand: Even though his divorce to Katy Perry took place at the end of 2011, the actor has been fielding non-stop questions about it all year. His marital troubles have also extended to legal ones too. Russell was investigated by police in New Orleans last March after grabbing an iPhone belonging to a paparazzo and smashing it to the ground!
Alec Baldwin: Alec's anger management issues have been front and center in the tabloids this month. Not only did he allegedly attack a photographer outside of a courthouse where he was applying for a marriage license with his fiancee, he then verbally berated and squeezed the arm of a photographer just three days ago!
Our advice to Julianne Hough? Watch your back, girl!
Do you think there's a Rock of Ages curse?
