HER MOTHER KILLED HER FATHER IN FRONT OF HER!
For many years, Charlize just mentioned in her interviews that “her father was killed in a car accident when she was 15 years” and changed the subject. The truth about a drunken abusive father-tyrant of the Oscar-winning actress and her childhood that she spent in Johannesburg, soon came out. The main reason why Charlize was trying to forget about those times was because of a large family quarrel, during which her mother, while trying to protect herself and her daughter, shot and killed her father.
Parents of the actress bred ostriches. “On the farm my father often got drunk and came home not only with his fists, but with the rifle, and threatened us with it. One day, he really pulled the trigger, but the mother at the last moment was able to take the rifle from him and protect herself and me…”
|LEIGHTON WAS BORN IN PRISON!|

|HIS SISTER TURNED OUT TO BE HIS MOTHER!|
It is the Time Magazine who dug out in the 1976 that Jack Nicholson’s sister is actually his mother and the woman whom he thought of as his mother was his grandmother. Nicholson is the son of a showgirl, June Frances Nicholson (stage name June Nilson). June had married Italian American showman Donald Furcillo (stage name Donald Rose) six months earlier in Elkton, Maryland, on October 16, 1936. Elkton was a town known for its "quickie" marriages. Furcillo, however, was already married, and, although he offered to take care of the child, June's mother Ethel insisted that she bring up the baby, partly so that June could pursue her dancing career. Although Donald Furcillo claimed to be Nicholson's father and to have committed bigamy by marrying June, biographer Patrick McGilligan asserted in Jack's Life that Latvian-born Eddie King (originally Edgar A. Kirschfeld),June's manager, may be the father, and other sources have suggested that June Nicholson was unsure of who the father was. Nicholson's mother was of Irish, English, and Dutch descent though he and his family self-identified as Irish.
Nicholson was brought up believing that his grandparents, John Joseph Nicholson (a department store window dresser in Manasquan, New Jersey) and Ethel May Rhoads (a hairdresser, beautician and amateur artist in Manasquan), were his parents. Nicholson only discovered that his "parents" were actually his grandparents and his sister was in fact his mother in 1974, after a journalist for Time magazine who was doing a feature on Nicholson informed him of the fact. By this time, both his mother and grandmother had died (in 1963 and 1970, respectively). Nicholson has stated he does not know who his father is, saying "Only Ethel and June knew and they never told anybody",and has chosen not to have a DNA test or to pursue the matter.
|SHE WAS RAPED BY HER UNCLE!|
In March 2006, Hatcher revealed to Vanity Fair that she was sexually abused from the age of five by Richard Hayes Stone, an uncle by marriage who was later divorced by Hatcher's aunt. Her parents, she said, were unaware of the abuse at the time. In 2002, she assisted Santa Clara County prosecutors with their indictment of Stone for a more recent molestation that led his female victim to commit suicide at the age of 14. Stone pleaded guilty to four counts of child molestation and was sentenced to 14 years in prison. In an interview appearing in Vanity Fair, Hatcher said she told the prosecutors about her own abuse because she was haunted by thoughts of the 14-year-old girl who shot herself, and feared Stone might escape conviction. Stone died of colon cancer on August 19, 2008, having served six years of his sentence.
|HIS FATHER ROBBED BANKS!|
SPIDER-MAN star Tobey Maguire has made pounds 6million playing the tortured teenage superhero.
But the actor has kept his own childhood heartache hidden.His father is a convicted criminal who served time for robbing a bank to feed his kids. High school dropout Tobey, 28, says his family were so poor his father Vincent, a chef, turned to crime in a bid to support them. Tobey said: 'I've probably lived in 50 different homes. We were super-duper poor. We were on welfare for a while, food stamps, the whole deal. 'I'd run out of the store when my mom would use food stamps. I was humiliated.' But a family friend said: 'Tobey is aware that his dad was pushed to the breaking point and made a rash decision which cost him dearly.'His father's sister Theresa had died just a couple of months before and left him with her two young children to raise which he claimed led to him taking desperate measures.
He decided to raid a bank but the robbery, in 1993, didn't go according to plan. Bungling Vincent forgot to wear a mask to disguise his identity at the bank in Los Angeles, California. He handed a note to a clerk demanding money then fled the scene in broad daylight, carrying a bag of money under his arm.
Incredibly, he went straight to his mother's house nearby. A neighbour spotted him and called the police. Vincent, then 38, was arrested, pleaded guilty and served two years in prison. Tobey, who was 17 and living with his mother Wendy, a secretary, at the time, was devastated.
