[[folder:Real Life]]
* As noted above, James Dean's two {{Star Making Role}}s put this trope on the map. By all accounts, the man himself was slightly like that too. The author of ''East of Eden'' remarked upon meeting him "he ''is'' Cal", and the director years later said "you couldn't not love a guy with that much pain in him". Julie Harris, who played Abra, reportedly found him crying in his trailer after filming had wrapped - because he was so overcome with emotion at finishing his first film.
* ByronicHero Lord Byron.
* Music/KurtCobain.
** The front men of the other big four grunge bands (Layne Staley of Alice In Chains, Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam, and Chris Cornell of Soundgarden, respectively) as well. Their predecessor Andrew Woods as well
* Pete Wentz of Music/FallOutBoy was this in the early 2000s. At least two songs, "Hum Hallelujah" and "Seven Minutes in Heaven (Atavan Halen)," are about an incident in which he attempted suicide in 2005 by overdosing on Atavan.
** Patrick Stump also fit the trope later in the band's career as well as during and after his solo work. In a [[http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/how-fall-out-boy-beat-the-odds-and-rose-again-20130418 Rolling Stone article]] published shortly after the band returned from its hiatus, Stump admitted he had struggled with overspending on street wear when the band was at the height of its fame. It escalated to the point where he had about 200 unopened shoeboxes of high-end sneakers.
* Former Music/OneDirection member Zayn Malik definitely fits especially with his anxiety problems now.
* Creator/MelanieLynskey is cute as a bug's ear, but tends to play characters that are, to say the least, quirky.
* River Phoenix.
* John Lennon was a drug addict, had a quick and fiery temper, and generally could be a downright JerkAss a lot of the time; but being a Beatle, he had no shortage of screaming fans, and Music/PaulMcCartney has been quoted as saying of those who actually KNEW John: "[[EvenTheGuysWantHim Everyone]] was in love with John; [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold John was lovable]], John was a very lovable guy."
* Ian Curtis of Music/JoyDivision fame.
* Conor Oberst, better known as the lead singer of Music/BrightEyes.
* Peter Steele of Music/TypeONegative fame.
* Based on his Draw My Life video, Creator/ShaneDawson is this a big way.
* Russell Brand (read "My Booky Wook").
* Creator/FriedrichNietzsche certainly had his emotional troubles, but was a kind, mild-mannered individual despite the grandiose nature of his philosophy, as his female pen pals attested.
* Taken UpToEleven with the [[UsefulNotes/{{Columbine}} Columine High School shooting]] perpetrators. Yes, [[DracoInLeatherPants the shooting was despicable, but they were physically handsome]]. Oddly enough, a quick search on Website/{{Tumblr}} (where most of the "Columbiner" community resides) shows that more people seem to be infatuated with [[JerkassWoobie Dylan Klebold]] than with [[{{Jerkass}} Eric Harris]] even though Harris was considerably more conventionally physically attractive. This probably has something to do with the idea that TrueBeautyIsOnTheInside - while Klebold wrote predominantly about [[IJustWantToBeLoved wanting love]] in his journal, Eric's was full of violent fantasies, as was a website he ran on which he expressed racist and [[HeteronormativeCrusader homophobic]] beliefs as well. As ''USA Today'' so eloquently put it:
--> [[http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/nation/2009-04-13-columbine-myths_N.htm Harris drew swastikas in his journal; Klebold drew hearts]].

* ''{{WebVideo/Aaron}}'''s two protagonists fit in different ways:
** Adam was previously more troubled in his teenage years - reckless drinking and driving his parents mad - but he's attempting to atone for his past mistakes.
** Chris is an aloof BigBrotherBully who resents his brother's attention that he got from his reckless behaviour. But he's proven to be a good guy deep down.
