Unsavory celebrities

Is it me, or is this a very unsavory looking couple? (By the way, the picture shows Carmen Electra getting a kiss from "her husband Dave Navarro as they model one-of-a-kind rock inspired attire designed by Tommy Hilfiger, Friday, April 22, 2005, in Los Angeles at the 12th Annual Race to Erase MS. This year's theme was Rock to Royalty, which inspired those attending to wear diamonds tiaras and black leather.") I just thought, for the heck of it, I'd contrast that picture with pictures of Hollywood couples from the old days when they might have lived quite unsavory lives, but the studios made sure that they projected unsullied images for America's benefit: Clark Gable and Carol Lombard (who apparently loved each other deeply until her untimely death in a plane crash on a war bond trip during WWII) Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball Fred Astaire and his wife, Phyllis (who, as far as I know, had an unusually happy marriage that ended only with her early death)
