Think stars are all that? These funny celebrity quotes will make you realize just how much smarter you actually are…
Amidst all the glam and pizazz of the star-studded Hollywood red carpet, there are a lot of awkward moments and words that definitely shouldn’t have been said. Have the blinding lights of stardom dulled the minds of these celebrities? It certainly makes you wonder if all the fame has pushed common sense out of their heads. These 5 funny celebrity quotes will make you realize that some of the brightest stars might sometimes not be too bright in the head.
There’s no doubt about it: Shaq is an NBA powerhouse. On top of that, he also has 4 rap albums and a number of films and reality shows under his belt. But in a cringe-worthy moment during a visit to Greece, he was asked if he had visited the Parthenon. His shameful answer was, “I can’t really remember the names of the clubs that we went to.” While Shaq is a greatly beloved basketball legend, his size and power still could not help him take back what was said.
The acclaimed actress and model actually graduated Princeton University with a bachelor’s degree in French literature, so Brooke Shields should be pretty smart. But we all slip a little bit sometimes. She was supposed to become an anti-smoking campaign spokesperson, and during an interview, she said, “Smoking kills. If you’re killed, you’ve lost a very important part of your life.” Didn’t quite think that through, did she?
As a recording artist and an actress, Jessica Simpson knows what it’s like to be in the spotlight all the time, and to be careful with whatever you say or do under the public’s watchful eye. She does have a bit of a reputation about saying not-so-smart things, just like this: “Is this chicken, what I have, or is this fish? I know it’s tuna, but it says ‘Chicken by the Sea.’”
Speaking of reputations, this dazzling blonde bombshell has had a notoriously rocky one indeed. From flashing her private parts to making out with Madonna on TV, Britney Spears is not one to disappoint the paparazzi. The once-innocent girl who used to sing about how she sometimes runs and hides is all gone, and her infamous reputation soars yet again with this awkward quote when she was referring to Japan: “I’ve never really wanted to go to Japan. Simply because I don’t like eating fish. And I know that’s very popular out there in Africa.”
LiLo is another Hollywood wild child, and she basically needs no introduction. Her tabloid stories and rehab stints are enough to put her on the map. For shame, she was once quoted saying “I wanted to do what Marilyn Monroe did (during the Korean War), when she went and just set up a stage and did a concert for the troops all by herself. It’s so amazing seeing that one woman just going somewhere, this beautiful sex kitten, who’s basically a pinup, which is what I’ve always aspired to be.”
