Even though we know they’re no good for us, many of us can’t help but be attracted to bad boys and nasty women. Who needs a healthy relationship when you can experience the danger, excitement and instability of dating a really hot, crazy person? Here are 13 psychopaths that, fortunately for us, are fictional and not available to actually date because if they were, we probably would.
Norman Bates from Psycho (1960)
If Alfred Hitchcock wanted us to cower in our seats at the sight of Psycho villain Norman Bates, he should have cast someone worse looking than the dreamy Anthony Perkins. The resident killer of Bates Motel, Perkins’ eyes are so big, brown, and long lashed that we almost don’t notice the flicker of crazy that passes through them as he gleefully preys on his unsuspecting guests. Sadly, while Bates is handsome, he’s not really boyfriend material. His mommy complex and love of taxidermy would be major deal breakers for us.
