Does is get any creepier than this? Ryan O'Neal tried to hit on his own daughter, Tatum, at the funeral of his lifelong partner, Farrah Fawcett. This is wrong on so many levels we don't even know where to begin.
First of all, why are you trying to pick up anyone at your partner's funeral? Secondly, why are you bragging about it in an interview like it was a badge of honor? And most importantly, and by the way, most creepy, your own daughter? EEWWW! His excuse was he didn't recognize her, but that makes it even sadder, really.
We thought we'd heard it all when it came to the strange relationships in some of Hollywood's families, but the O'Neals take the cake. Since Farrah's death, Griffin O'Neal has come forward with stories of Ryan giving him cocaine when he was 11, while Tatum's tell-all book describes years of abuse and paternal failure. But the O'Neals are not the only creepy famous family. Here are a few that rival Ryan and his offspring.
Shia LaBeouf: Oedipus Complex Incarnate
This past spring, Shia LaBeouf told Playboy that he thought his mom was the sexiest woman he'd ever known and he would be with her if she weren't his mother. Whaaaaaaat? Sigmund Freud would be so proud. But wait, there's more. Shia also went on to say that when he was growing up, his pot-smoking hippie mom and dad walked around the house nude, even when his friends came over to play. Sometimes members of his mom's "goddess group" would trace one another's naked auras with incense, while Shia and his pals enjoyed their milk and cookies. At least it covered up the smell of weed.
Morgan Freeman: The Granddaddy of Creepiness?
If you love Morgan Freeman from "The Electric Company," "Driving Miss Daisy," or "The Shawshank Redemption," you might want to skip this one. The National Enquirer recently reported that 72-year-old Morgan has been involved in a ten-year affair with his 27-year-old step-granddaughter, E'Dena Hines. If it proves to be true, we think it's just nu-uts... nuts.
Billy Ray Cyrus: Just a Dad Who REALLY Loves His Daughter
In 2008, Vanity Fair published an Annie Leibovitz portrait of then-15-year-old Miley Cyrus, naked and draped in a cloth with her bare back exposed. Disney reps were outraged, fans were astounded, and their parents were fuming. But believe it or not, that photo was less creepy than another image published in that same issue, the one of Miley and her dad, Billy Ray, in what many considered a very suggestive pose, one reserved more for lovers than father/daughter pairs. It certainly creeped us out! Billy said it was, "...just a daddy who loves his daughter a whole lot." Was that supposed to make it seem better? Oh, and by the way, Billy reportedly left the shoot before the topless section of the program began. Good parenting at its finest.
Kristina and Karissa Shannon: Sisters Shouldn't Share EVERYTHING
Call us old-fashioned but, as sisters, we have never dated the same guy. Not at different times and CERTAINLY not at the same time. But then again, Hugh Hefner never asked us out. No... even if Hef himself invited us to be part of his Playboy posse, we would demurely decline. Not the case with the 19-year-old Shannon twins, Kristina and Karissa, who moved into the 83-year-old's mansion after "The Girls Next Door" moved out.
Angelina Jolie: Taking Brotherly Love Too Far
First Angelina Jolie went to the 2000 Academy Awards dressed as Elvira, escorted by her brother, James Haven. Then, upon winning the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for "Girl Interrupted," she announced from the podium, "I'm so in love with my brother right now." Then came the photo of them kissing... on the LIPS. Not surprisingly, incest rumors ran rampant, which she, of course, denied. That kind of controversy can follow a girl around for quite a while, but it's nothing one more failed marriage, a high-profile love affair with America's most handsome actor, six kids, and a whole lot of international goodwill missions can't wipe away.
Woody Allen: Mother, Lock Up Your Daughter
In perhaps one of the most highly publicized moments in inter-family inappropriateness, the world was shocked in 1992 when then 57-year-old Woody Allen left his girlfriend of 12 years, Mia Farrow, for her 22-year-old daughter, Soon-Yi Previn. Mia and her second husband, Andre Previn, had adopted Soon-Yi when she was eight, but Woody had been part of the girl's life since she was ten. It seemed so wrong at the time, but now, 17 years, one wedding, and two adopted daughters later, we have to say, maybe Woody and Soon-Yi knew better than the rest of us after all.
Jerry Lee Lewis: Kissing (Third) Cousins
Jerry Lee Lewis got a lot of practice when it came to marriage, but he still wasn't very good at it. By the time he was 22 years old, he was on his third. Jerry Lee married wife #2 (Jane Mitcham) 23 days before his first divorce from Dorothy Barton was final. But that's not the creepy part. Wife #3 (who he also married before his second divorce was inked) was his third cousin — yes cousin — Myra Gale Brown. And if you thought that was bad... she was only 13. The pair tried to lie about her age for a bit, but the press found out and had a field day, calling him a "cradle robber" and a "baby snatcher." Guess the incest part didn't bother them as much. Whatever the reason, the marriage destroyed his music career. The kissing cousins' marriage lasted 13 years; Myra was 26 when they divorced. And Jerry Lee? He divorced wife #6 in 2004.
