On occasion, that excitement can spill over and before you know it, spoilers slip out.

Sometimes, it's not that big of a deal and it goes relatively under the radar. In this day and age, it tends to blow up a bit bigger though.

Most people only slip up once or twice, but some actors have reputations as serial offenders. Here are the best of both.

1.Tom Holland, spoiler-in-chief, has reportedly had information restricted from him for fear he might slip up during a press tour.

2.Mischa Barton revealed her One Tree Hill character Marissa Cooper's fate a day before the highly anticipated episode aired.

Even though there were rumors of a cast member leaving and a character death was being teased during the season, OC fans were straight-up not okay with Marissa Cooper's demise.

3.Michael Keaton gave away a pretty major Batman spoiler THE DAY BEFORE the iconic film was released on Late Night With David Letterman.

4.When Sylvester Stallone posted a photo of the Creed script, he didn't realize hardcore fans would zoom in on the script and learn his character, Rocky Balboa, would have cancer in the film.

5.David Prowse, the man who physically played Darth Vader, revealed the twist that he was Luke Skywalker's father two years before it came out in films.

Since he only slipped to a local newspaper and social media and fandom weren't things yet, it went mostly unnoticed.

6.Ian McShane was talking about his character in Game Of Thrones and revealed he'd only be in one episode, AND that he was bringing back a character everyone thought was dead.

7.While in Tokyo for the I Am Legend press tour, Will Smith accidentally revealed the ending of the film.

"This whole journey of him going to become the king," Momoa said, without realizing what he'd said. "I think the last, last frame of this movie of this movie, you're gonna see him actually become what he's destined to be."

15.An extra named Tyler Nelson revealed soooo many details about Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull to a local paper, prompting a lawsuit from Lucasfilm for violating his non-disclosure agreement (NDA).

They ultimately settled, but it was hard for the extra, who was entirely edited out of the film, to get work after it.
