Talk shows love having celebrities as guests (and on occasion, as hosts), given the publicity they generate. However, popular hosts also know that they have lots of power when it comes to deciding who can appear on their shows.

Here are 7 celebrities who have had to bear the brunt of a host’s wrath at one point in their careers.

Host Ellen Degeneres refused to allow Vaughn to promote his film The Dilemma on her show because the trailers had a scene where he called electric cars “gay.” Incidentally, the film was ripped apart by critics and flopped at the box office.
