7 Hollywood sweethearts’ bad streaks

These Hollywood good girls may not be as sweet as you think. While these actresses are generally known for their squeaky clean images, even they aren't immune to a scandal or two.

From drunken arrests to shocking affairs, these leading ladies all have a bad streak.

With fame and success comes temptations, and we've seen too many formerly sweet stars turn sour.

But unlike the scandal-seeking Miley Cyrus and the infamous Lindsay Lohan, these stars bounced back.

    Before the Pitt/Aniston/Jolie love triangle there was the Carter/Lohan/Duff mess.

    Fans were thrilled when 90's teen sensation Aaron Carter and Disney Channel's Hilary Duff got together. But their highly publicized romance didn't last very long.

    Carter dumped Duff amid rumors that the "I Want Candy" singer had started dating Lindsay Lohan.

    "I started dating Hilary on my 13th birthday," Carter recalled on "The Big Idea With Donny Deutsch." "I was dating her for like a year and a half, and then I just got a little bored, so I went and started getting to know Lindsay, dating Lindsay."

    Carter later admitted to regretting his actions, tweeting that Duff was the love of his life. He might have a chance now that Duff is single.
