They’re beautiful, rich, and famous … so why do celebrities get addicted to porn when they could easily get the “real thing?” Like any other type of dependency, porn addiction is a disease that can plague anyone, including famous people. Many people think it’s a tad more embarrassing than an alcohol, nicotine, or other drug addiction.

Celebrities who have come out (or been exposed) as porn addicts are facing even more scrutiny than the average Joe or Jane. Here are eight celebs who have suffered from porn addiction.

1. Tiger Woods

Granted, Tiger admits to being addicted to both sex and porn, but these two addictions are often related. His addictions destroyed his marriage and put his career in a steep decline which he’s still trying to recover from. His ex-swing coach calls him a “lover of pornography,” but that’s a pretty mild description of a serious disease.

2. Cameron Diaz

The validity of this claim is up for debate, but Cameron described herself as a “porn addict” on Jimmy Kimmel’s show. However, a beautiful woman addicted to porn tends to carry a very different stereotype from a man addicted to porn. If her claim is true and not a PR ploy, it still may interfere with her life … and not in a good way.

3. Mel Gibson

Mel might be better known for stranger behavior than porn addiction recently, but many still remember when Mel became a virtual recluse and developed a foot fetish while filming in Thailand.

Reporter Rick Wedge says that Mel spent “hours downloading pictures of naked female feet.” When he was forced to leave his hotel for meetings, he always had his laptop handy to feed his addiction.

4. John Wayne

The Duke lived in an era where eclectic porn was difficult to find. He preferred men in dresses mixed with cowboy gear, which means he had to request prostitutes to “model” for him, according to Wedge.

5. David Duchovny

His character in “Californication” hit a little too close to home for David, who entered rehab for both porn and sex addiction. He had a “self-described obsession with porn,” but he’s one of the fortunate few who sought professional help.

6. John Mayer

The singer admitted to his porn addiction to Playboy Magazine, an appropriate outlet. “I’m a self soother … my biggest dream is to write pornography,” he says. However, it doesn’t seem like John has made the mental leap from enjoying porn in a healthy way to understanding it’s likely disrupting his life.

7. Kanye West

Kanye hasn’t said so himself, but he’s very open about “needing” to watch Kim Kardashian (his current “baby mama”) in action on a sex tape before having sex with his exes.

He’s also proud to say he’s “smashed” porn stars. In a memoir, his mother writes about continuously catching Kanye with porn even when he was very young — and friend Nicki Minaj has also claimed Kanye is an addict.

8. Charlie Sheen

It might seem like Charlie’s addicted to just about everything, including sex, but his porn addiction garnered a lot of attention. Denise Richards, his second wife, posted a “declaration” online that detailed his porn addiction.

“He told me he was not going to give up his porn habit and that I had to accept it.” She goes on to cite what she considers “very young girls” as part of his porn habits as well as gay pornography; it’s rumored that Charlie asked many prostitutes to act out favorite porn scenes.

It’s important to know that porn addiction is a very real and serious disorder that requires professional intervention. Getting help from a reputable center is crucial to reclaiming your life.
