Considered by many to be the finest American actor of all time, Marlon Brando was also one of Hollywood's biggest handfuls. A method actor of the first degree, the star rarely memorised dialogue and often read his lines off the foreheads and chests of other actors. Over the years, Brando continued to receive plaudits for his roles in films like 'The Godfather', but much like his character in 'Apocalypse Now', he eventually went off the deep end.
The one-time sex symbol let himself balloon to 25 stone, isolated himself on an island for a while, and in 1990, his son Christian was arrested for murdering his half-sister's boyfriend, an alleged drug dealer. Brando went into debt to the tune of millions of dollars defending Christian, and survived in the years that followed on small - but steady - residuals from his films.
