* Twinkles Sunshine, the child actress in ''TheHairBearBunch'' episode "Whatever Happened To Goldilocks And The Three Bears?", is built up in the press as "ever-lovable." Tell her co-stars that. She's an absolute bitchy dominatrix.

* 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 adut 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 alot during her tantrums.]]

%%*''Series/SlingsAndArrows'' plays this straight and subverts it. Neither of which are surprising, as it's a show about actors.



* [[Creator/BettyWhite Sue Ann Nivens]] on ''Series/TheMaryTylerMooreShow'' was the charming, sweet, homebody host of ''The Happy Homemaker''. Almost immediately after the cameras stopped rolling, she showed herself as a nymphomaniac and something of a bitch.

* In the TV movie based on ''Film/ProblemChild'', Junior had his heart set on a lovely blonde girl named Tiffany. Toward the very end, when he was able to get next to her, she revealed herself to be a vain SpoiledBrat. He fixed her good in the process and found a true friend in a homely girl in a devil costume.

** In another story, the Outlaws meet Anthony Martin, a child star famous because of his mother's literary works about him (a parody of Creator/AAMilne's works about his son Christopher Robin.) Anthony is ''not'' the sweet, angelic child that his mother and the press portray him as; and the Outlaws finally get their own back when they manage to record him verbally abusing his nanny.


Added DiffLines:

** Another episode was based around ''Scaredy-Cam'', a hidden camera prank show. Terry, the host, seems friendly on camera but is abusive towards the backstage staff and rude to the participants, as well as deliberately endangering their safety. One participant explicitly says that Terry seemed much nicer on TV than he is in real life.
