Hayward faced an onslaught of criticism for his handling of the Gulf oil disaster, which killed 11 people and left waters, beaches and wildlife fouled with crude oil.

He committed numerous media blunders such as saying "I want my life back" and taking part in a U.K. yacht race during the crisis.

In a recent interview, Hayward said that he would have handled the media better if he'd been a qualified actor, rather than a geologist.
