These Celebrities Need Public Speaking Lessons! 20 Dumb Things Celebs Have Said

20 Dumbest Celebrity Quotes (Yup, They Said It!)

"Tom Cruise"

We’ve all said some pretty dumb things when contemplating life, our own goals and philosophies. We’re just lucky nobody was around to record them. But these celebrities didn’t have that luck! Then again, when you are in the lime light, shouldn’t you be a little more cautious about what you say?



Kim Kardashian

"Kim Kardashian wedding"

(Speaking about her wedding) “I would not have spent so much time on something just for a TV show!” Right Kim: because we all know how much you hate being on TV. Especially broadcasting your own personal life on there. No matter how hard we try, we just can’t seem to find you on television…it’s not like there are re-runs of your own reality show going all day long…


Kris Jenner

"Kris Jenner"

(On daughter’s wedding) “Kim didn’t make a dime out of her wedding.” Because there is simply no monetary value in the designer dress or jewelry that Kim was given for free, simply to have it showcased on her televised wedding—right?


Paris Hilton

"Paris Hilton"

“Everything bad that can happen to a person has happened to me.” An Heiress to a ridiculously lucrative hotel chain, beautiful and paid to show up for ten minutes at pool parties? Yup. Paris has it bad. And the whole DUI stuff: well, it’s not as if she brought that upon herself!


Lindsay Lohan

"Lindsay Lohan"

“I was not drinking, nor do I drink!” Lindsay, considering how whack you’ve behaved, you should probably just say you are a drinker so we’re not forced to consider all the other substances that drove you—well, your car—into a dump truck on PCH.


Paula Abdul

"Paula Abdul"

“I’ve never been drunk in my life. I don’t use recreational drugs.” You’d think someone in the business as long as Paula would know not to tell such a blatant lie to the media for two reasons: 1) Because the truth comes out eventually and 2) Because we all pretty much expect that celebs do drugs, so the truth wouldn’t have been a huge shock.


Jennifer Hudson

"Jennifer Hudson"

“I’m prouder of my weight loss than my Oscar!” This quote is at first shocking but we actually like it! Jennifer’s weight loss improves her quality of life every day, moment to moment, and any woman that’s had to drop that many pounds knows it is not easy.


Johnny Depp

"Johnny Depp"

In one interview with Vanity Fair Johnny said of photo shoots that, “You just feel like you’re being r*ped somehow.” There goes any shot Johnny had at being a keynote speaker at events for actual victims of r*pe.


Rashard Mendenhall

"Rashard Mendenhall"

(On death of Osama Bin Laden) “What kind of person celebrates death? It’s amazing how people can HATE a man they have never even heard speak. We’ve only heard one side…” Hmm…Rashard we’re not exactly celebrating Osama’s death so much as we are the lives of the countless people who now won’t die, because Osama is gone.


Mark Wahlberg

"Mark Wahlberg"

Of the 9/11 crashes, Mark once said that if he’d been on one of those planes things would have definitely ended differently. Saying that “after bloodshed” he’d say, “Okay, we’re going to land somewhere safely.” We think that being in too many action films has gotten to Mark’s head.


Ashton Kutcher

"Ashton Kutcher"

Ashton tweeted of the Jerry Sandusky scandal: “How do you fire Jo Pa? As a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste.” Ashton later apologized saying that he didn’t know the whole story. Ashton: when making opinionated statements on incidents of child molestation, you might want to just read one article all the way through first.


Charlie Sheen

"Charlie Sheen"

After being fired from Two and a Half Men, Charlie said this an ABC News interview at his home, “I’m on a drug. It’s called Charlie Sheen.” How’s that drug selling on the streets, Charlie? Probably not so well.


Britney Spears

"Britney Spears"

“I get to go to lots of overseas places, like Canada!” We might have expected this from post shaved-head Britney, but this quote actually came from the star when she was still young and (presumably) didn’t have any loose screws yet.


Gwyneth Paltrow

"Gwyneth Paltrow"

“I am convinced that by eating biological foods it is possible to avoid a tumor.” She’s right! We better stop eating all that…um…what other types of foods are there, again?


Arnold Schwarzenegger

"Arnold Schwarzenegger"

“I think gay marriage is something that should be between a man and a woman.”

Okay Arnold, but you probably won’t get a lesbian and a homosexual man to marry each other.


David Hasselhoff

"David Hasselhoff"

“I’ve got taste. It’s inbred in me.” Yes David: nothing breeds tastefulness like incest. Perhaps The Hoff said this during one of his drunken rampages at an airport.


Carla Bruni

"Carla Bruni"

“When I was having hair and make-up done backstage at a fashion show, I would sneak in a copy of Dostoevsky and read it inside a copy of Elle or Vogue. But it would be pretentious of me to say I was more intelligent than the other supermodels.” Oh no, God forbid Caria say it. Insinuating it is much less offensive.


Tom Cruise

"Tom Cruise"

“As a kid, when I got to the edge of a cliff I wanted to jump off, I didn’t want to kill myself. I wanted to fly.” Give him a break: Scientology probably told him that he could fly.


Cindy Crawford

"Cindy Crawford"

“In the studio, I do try to have a thought in my head, so that it’s not a blank stare.”

It’s hard work to have a thought apparently.


Nicole Richie

"Nicole Richie"

“When I pictured h-eroine, I pictured some crazy krackhead with no shoes under a bridge. You never think that is going to be you. And it never was me. I was never under a bridge, and I always had shoes.” Apparently you know you’ve got a handle on your h-eroine use when you’re still wearing shoes.


  • Jennlove

    this was a really dumb list!

  • The voice of Reason

    I hope whoever wrote this was fired and whoever approved it took the walk off the plank with them. I have never seen such garbage in my life, even from a crappy tabloid like this one.

  • Stupid, stupid list. All the stuff is really recent, and most of it is just lies instead of stupidity. How about Alec Baldwin advocating the murder of people who don’t agree with him politically?

    • How is that stupid? Arrogant and potentially violent, but stupid? Your comment on the other hand…

  • ScottA

    I thought Kris Jenner’s claim to fame was that she used to be a guy.

    • EtaoinShrdlu

      No, no, it’s that she married a Guy that used to be a guy

      • ScottA

        AHHH….I knew it was something like that. Now on to Bethenny Frankel.

  • evidence-based

    Wasted my time, I could of been sleeping!

  • Steve

    All stupid libs too!

  • Satan

    I actually found this list to be quite annoying. I hope whom ever wrote this isn’t allowed to do something like this again.

  • bigdrewlittle

    LOL on Britney not having any screws loose when she was younger…ever stop to think maybe she’s just kinda…I dunno…naturally doofy?

  • If this had been posted on cracked or a website dedicated to something other than “fashion” I imagine the responses would be much more positive. Instead we just have a bunch of white knights defending their favorite celebritards.

  • Alec

    Christened has to do with the general anointing of something, it need not be in a religious sense. If you didn’t know, Christ wasn’t Jesus’s last name. He was called Jesus the Anointed (Christós). He was called Jesus of Nazareth in his time; only referred to as Jesus Christ after the fact. May we add your name to the end of this list regarding your quip of David Beckham? Or was that your intention for this whole article?

  • Nate

    Wow, that comment AND he cheated on Demi because he was sad she couldn’t get pregnant at 48???!?!?!?! Ashton REALLY IS Kelso!

  • zck2020

    Seriously, half these quotes weren’t even dumb and the writer’s response to them were often dumber than the quotes themselves.

  • TrueBlue

    I love this list!!! It takes these things that these ‘stars’ say and holds them accountable!
    Particularly love the one with Tom Cruise!!! What a joke! Have boycotted every film he was in since Top Gun!

  • Josh

    Who the hell wrote this garbage? The quotes would have been fine, without the inane, bizarre commentary.

  • roxiemist

    Honestly, of all the people on this list, Cruise is probably the one I would have pegged for the most lacking in sense prior to reading through it; however, his quote is actually quite benign. If anything, the fact that it even appears on this list demonstrates how poorly suicidal ideation is understood as a psychological issue for the vast majority of people =/

    • NotBob

      I don’t think his comment had anything to do with suicide. It seems that (at least out of context) he was talking about wanting to fly as a kid. And he realized what “wanted to jump off a cliff” must have sounded like and immediately clarified himself.

  • jrsp

    Making the assumption that Ashton can read.

  • barbaraebj

    Why do you spell Heroin as h-eroine? Heroin is the drug. Heroine is a female hero. H-eroine is not a word at all in the English dictionary or even the Urban dictionary.

  • agular

    You have confused nationality with race, common mistake for
    the poorly educated.

  • Dave Henry

    Where’s a quote from Ben Ghazi?

  • See

    Ahhhhhh….. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s quote is priceless. Maybe he should stick to taking the sheep and cows out to pasture in… Austria!!
