Added DiffLines:

* In ''The Great Man'', a journalist prepares a broadcast tribute to the late Herb Fuller, a radio comedian who had a reputation for being genuinely funny, warm-hearted, and empathetic to the common man. During World War II, Fuller even braved the battlefield to deliver plasma to a badly wounded soldier in order to promote a radio blood drive. However, while doing his research for the tribute, the journalist finds out that Fuller was actually a hard-drinking, abusive womanizer. As for that World War II broadcast, [[spoiler: he staged it while staying in Paris, where he spent most of his time getting drunk and chasing women. According to Fuller's friend, he never even left Paris and actually had to be bailed out of jail there after being caught with a female black-marketer.]]

* In the ''Wildlife'' trilogy by Todd Strasser, Oscar Roginoff gets worse and worse with each new book. As the keyboardist (who also composed all of their music) for the Coming Attractions, he has an amazing knack for connecting with the crowd. But the audience never sees his behind-the-scenes prima-donna antics at least until the titular book, when the band appears on an {{MTV}} segment following the last show of their final tour. Then it all goes downhill at least for him.

* Baby Doll teeter-totters between this and MeanCharacterNiceActor in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''. Unlike most actors, whose excuses were drugs and scandals, she was a very sympathetic character. She was born with a rare disorder that made her look much younger than she was. She starred as a the titular Baby Doll, a five-ish year old character in her ''20s.'' Despite being a talented actress, she couldn't move on because no one could look past her looks and later started off the plot to recapture the cast due to it being the only happy time in her life, switching between her adult self and the persona she had. However some things she does tend to cause sympathy levels to teeter totter. Although one of her co-stars that she kidnapped mentioned she was difficult to work with on the set, always making extreme demands and throwing tantrums if she didn't get her way.
** Arguably, this was probably condition caused by having to play a five-year-old. [[TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody After all, she did look like a child and spent most of her career acting as one so she probably ended up regressing a lot during her tantrums.]]
