  • 'Gandhi' Slept With Underaged Girls on Random Horrible True Stories Left Out Of Biopics To Make Person Look Bett

    (#2) 'Gandhi' Slept With Underaged Girls

    Everyone, including the Oscar-winning Gandhi, assumes that Mahatma Gandhi was morally pristine because he was starving all the time. Not the case. As it turns out, the brave, peaceful hero of Colonial India was actually kind of a pervert. As a 'test' of his piety and purity, he would sleep next to young girls - including his grand-niece - and force himself not to touch them or become aroused.

    This disrespect for women fell in line with his documented assertion that menstrual blood is a "manifestation of the distortion of a woman's soul by her sexuality." Oh and he also believed that Black people are sub-human. But Ben Kingsley's acting (and brownface), tho. 

  • 'Walk The Line' Skipped Over Johnny Cash Killing Like 50 Endangered Condors on Random Horrible True Stories Left Out Of Biopics To Make Person Look Bett

    (#13) 'Walk The Line' Skipped Over Johnny Cash Killing Like 50 Endangered Condors

    No one can say that Walk the Line makes Johnny Cash look perfect, but it does ignore the fact that Cash once almost drove an entire species of birds to extinction. In the summer of 1965, after a particularly toxic fight with his then-wife Vivian, the troubled singer drove a camper to Los Padres National Forest in California with his nephew, Damon Fielder.

    Unfortunately, Cash, who was high on amphetamines at the time, accidentally ignited some underbrush while trying to start a campfire and - oopsie daisy - burned three entire mountains of forested area. When informed by a judge later on that his actions had wiped out 49 of the area's 53 endangered condors, he quipped: "I don't care about your damn yellow buzzards." Swoon!

  • 'Get On Up' Left Out The Small Detail Of James Brown Stealing His Biggest Song on Random Horrible True Stories Left Out Of Biopics To Make Person Look Bett

    (#12) 'Get On Up' Left Out The Small Detail Of James Brown Stealing His Biggest Song

    The James Brown biopic Get On Up isn't a hagiography, as it doesn't shy away from James Brown's (played by Chadwick Boseman) history of marital assault by painting him as a saint. It does, however, gloss over the fact that he stole his biggest song from a girlfriend. Brown's ex Betty Jean Newsome took him to court over the fact that he lifted the main melody of "It's a Man's Man's Man's World" from a riff she sang during a car ride.

    Newsome won the lawsuit, but Brown never formally apologized. And neither did the film.

  • If 'The Walk' Were More Accurate, All Of Petit's Friends Would Have Been Deported on Random Horrible True Stories Left Out Of Biopics To Make Person Look Bett

    (#15) If 'The Walk' Were More Accurate, All Of Petit's Friends Would Have Been Deported

    2015's The Walk, a treatment of the real-life story captured in 2008's Oscar-winning documentary Man on Wire, took an inspirational subject and lionized him in an inspirational movie. Problem is: the real-life story doesn't have the same happy ending as the movie. In The Walk, Phillipe Petit (played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt), who just successfully scaled a cable linking the Twin Towers, decides to stay in New York with his friends after his girlfriend decides to move back to Paris.

    In real life, Petit quietly stayed behind as all of his friends got deported

  • 'Birdman Of Alcatraz' Conveniently Leaves Out The Part About Robert Stroud Being A Violent Prison Instigator on Random Horrible True Stories Left Out Of Biopics To Make Person Look Bett

    (#8) 'Birdman Of Alcatraz' Conveniently Leaves Out The Part About Robert Stroud Being A Violent Prison Instigator

    The 1962 biopic, Birdman of Alcatraz, tells the story of the mild-mannered first-Leavenworth, then-Alcatraz prison inmate, Robert Stroud. In the film, Stroud, played by Burt Lancaster, is certainly rebellious (he's in prison for something, after all), but his overall tenor is one of care and affection; after all, he nurses and breeds sparrows and canaries in a specially designated area of the prison. In the film, Stroud's rebelliousness peaks in his penning of a critique of the US prison system.

    In real life, though, this overwhelmingly gentle, mild-mannered version of Stroud is far from accurate. In fact, Stroud remained incredibly violent and aggressive throughout his prison sentence, and some of his fellow inmates have even characterized the film as a "comedy" because it's portrayal of Stroud is so far from the truth.

    The real "Birdman of Alcatraz" once viciously assaulted a hospital orderly, stabbed a fellow inmate, and constantly created "chaos and turmoil and upheaval" while behind bars. Conveniently, most of this behavior didn't make the biopic.

  • 'The Iron Lady' Magically Erased Margaret Thatcher's Racism And Homophobia on Random Horrible True Stories Left Out Of Biopics To Make Person Look Bett

    (#9) 'The Iron Lady' Magically Erased Margaret Thatcher's Racism And Homophobia

    The 2013 death of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher sent ripples throughout the British public, with some memorializing her lasting effects on British politics and others reflecting upon her less-charming qualities. The 2011 biopic Iron Lady seemed to fall in the former camp, as it failed to include Thatcher's toxic attitudes towards non-whites and non-straights.

    According to close associates of the Iron Lady (played by Meryl Streep in an Oscar-winning turn), she stubbornly stigmatized LGBT people in legislation and encouraged Australia to block immigration from Asia

About This Tool

In the process of recording deeds, biographers may infiltrate some of their own emotions, imagination, or inferences, but unlike novels, biographies are generally not fictional, and documentary is the basic requirement of biographies. Even when you see a movie based on a true story at the beginning, its accuracy cannot reach100%. In order to make the plot of the movie more clear and reasonable, many classic biopics either exaggerated the true details or deleted some stories.

Do you like to watch biopics? There are more details you may never know. You could see a total of 15 items here, the random tool shows 15 horrible true stories that were left out of biopics to make the movie better.
