You really want your boss to fire the guy who brushes his toenail clippings underneath the cubicle divider and blames it on you, but he won't because that guy sold twice as many widgets last month as you did.

You're also having trouble coping with Junior in accounting, who sends your paperwork back because he wants you to press harder on the triplicate form so he can read it while surfing the Internet. He won't get fired either. He's the boss's son.

Take heart. It could be worse. You could be a big-time Hollywood director and have to work with these notoriously hard-to-work-with thespians.

Just in case your delusion of becoming a Hollywood star actually comes true, you probably want to avoid these Hollywood divas, starting with the godfather of all divas ...

Marlon Brando in scene from The Godfather

No. 5: Marlon Brando

Brando was considered "eccentric," which means he was a pain in the butt who made a lot of people a lot of money, so they put up with him.

Don't let his eccentricities stop you from seeing "On the Waterfront," "A Streetcar Named Desire" or his riveting Mark Antony monologue in "Julius Caesar."

Diva or not, Brando was consistent off the screen as well, turning down an Academy Award for best actor for his role as Don Corleone in "The Godfather"; apparently it was an offer he could refuse.

Other examples of Brando's odd behavior includes not responding to director Frank Oz's suggestions unless he spoke in a Miss Piggy voice and demanding (and getting) $10 million for a four-minute appearance in "Superman."

Don't confuse Brando's brand of diva as unmanly, however; it's not like he sang in a boy band like our next celebrity ...

Justin Timberlake

No. 4: Justin Timberlake

Calling the lead singer of a boy band a diva is easier than convincing Britney Spears to marry you.

Standing out as a diva among your boy-band contemporaries, however, takes an awful lot of whining and moaning, and very few do it better than Justin Timberlake.

In March of 2010, according to the New York Post, Timberlake threw a tantrum while preparing to show his clothing line at New York's Fashion Week (having your own clothing line doesn't necessarily mean you're a diva, but it is a possible sign that you could easily become one) and forced everyone in attendance to sign a gag order, something that Timberlake should have tried before insulting the entire country of Australia in 2007.

A look at Timberlake's past and girlfriends and current wife, however, indicates that being a diva isn't always bad.

If he'd have dated this next diva, it would make for titanic gossip ...

Gwyneth Paltrow

No. 3: Gwyneth Paltrow
