They’re more “hot” than “wholesome”. Meet the celebs your mum would prefer you not to date…

Alex Pettyfer: The actor is a nightmare on set, being branded by one producer as "cocky". He has the tattoo “thank you” above his penis, explaining it's for: “in case I forget to say it”. So does he care everyone hates on him? Nope. “'I've heard I've been called a bad boy... Maybe that's because I don't take any bull**."

Jonathan Rhys Meyers: The Irish Bend It Like Beckham star has been a bad boy since way back. He’s been in and out of rehab for years for substance and alcohol abuse, has regular breakdowns on the sets of his movies and has even been banned from flying a few times due to being drunk and disorderly.

Russell Brand: he might be hilarious but Russell is the ultimate bad boy bachelor. Whether he’s having an “altercation” with paparazzo at LAX airport or describing sex with ex-wife Katy Perry by saying, “I’d think of anyone else”, Russell is not someone your mum would approve of…

Colin Farrell: His Irish accent might make him sound innocent but he's baaadd. Colin was embroiled in a sex tape scandal in 2006, has checked into rehab and has an impressive list of brief romances (with celebs like Britney Spears, Angelina Jolie and Playboy bunnies). He now has a couple of kids from different women…

Tom Hardy: He always plays the bad boy so convincingly in movies and there’s a reason why: he is one. He was expelled from school, abused drugs and alcohol as a teen, has been to jail and was once arrested for stealing a car and possessing a gun. Plus, he describes himself as: “A serial boyfriend. I've never been on my own.” Bad. News.

Tiger Woods: The pro golfer managed to keep his bad boy ways a secret… until 2009, that is. His wife Elin discovered he was having an affair with one woman. Then 13 others came forward to say they’d also been with the star while he was married. Awkies!

Eminem: At least the rapper has made no attempt to conceal his bada** nature, right? He’s been fighting substance addiction for years and has been reprimanded for pulling a gun on a rival rap group. When ‘Lose Yourself’ won the Best Song Oscar in 2003, he refused to show up saying he didn’t fit in with the celebrity crowd.

Zac Efron: He’s only recently confirmed his bad boy status after revealing he’s been fighting a cocaine addiction for years. And after going to rehab and swearing he was on the mend, he broke his jaw, allegedly after partying. Tsk, tsk. The bachelor, who’s dated Lily Collins, Taylor Swift and Vanessa Hudgens, is a baller to watch out for…

Wilmer Valderamma: Turns out the star is a major sleaze. On Howard Stern’s radio show he ranked Jennifer Love-Hewitt an “eight” in the sack, disclosed that he videotapes many of his sexual escapades and said he was “blessed” in the penis department. Plus, he reckons he’s God's gift. “[Humour is] my main blessing,” he said recently. We’re not laughing.

John Mayer: This guy is king of inappropes oversharing about his famous exes. Case in point? He said of his ex Jessica Simpson: “Sexually it was crazy… It was like napalm.” Then, he told The New York Times that: “I equate dating a woman with punishment, shame, guilt.” Wow, just wow. Beware, Katy Perry!

Jude Law: He might come across as uber charming and sweet, but Jude Law is a player from way back. The English actor has children with model Samantha Burke and ex-wife Sadie Frost and just when he seemed to be about to settle down with Sienna Miller, it was revealed he’d cheated on her with his nanny. Sienna? You dodged a bullet, girl.

Chris Brown: Ugh, Chris puts the “a” in “bada”. He assaulted Rihanna in 2009, showed zero remorse and then dated RiRi and Karrueche Tran at the same time. And to further add to his World’s Biggest D-Bag status, he assaulted Frank Ocean earlier this year giving him “sliced fingers”. The reason? Basically because he’s jealous of him. #Lame

Justin Bieber: He started off as the innocent little guy who told us all to “believe” in ourselves. Now, he’s being confronted by reports of sexting with Miranda Kerr, liaising with Playboy bunnies on his tour bus and visiting a brothel in Brazil. Don’t even get us started on the video a fan took of him sleeping…
