Mindhole Blowers: 20 Strange, Inane and Stupid Things Celebrities Said

By Cindy Davis | Seriously Random Lists | June 5, 2013 | Comments ()


Listen, as someone who has spent most of her life with foot firmly planted in mouth, I know how it is. Who among us has not uttered something she immediately wanted to take back? But you know what’s cool? We’re not celebrities, so the likelihood is, only our friends and family poke fun at us. Not Sorry, famous people…this one’s at your expense.

In poking around, I tried to make sure there was some sort of “evidence” or back-up on these quotes, because interestingly, one of the most horrifying quotes (attributed to Mariah Carey) was disproved.

(See more Celebrity Facts.)

1. Sean Connery, 1965

“I don’t think there is anything particularly wrong about hitting a woman—although I don’t recommend doing it in the same way that you’d hit a man. An openhanded slap is justified—if all other alternatives fail and there has been plenty of warning. If a woman is a bitch, or hysterical, or bloody-minded continually, then I’d do it. I think a man has to be slightly advanced, ahead of the woman.”

2. Chris Brown, 2012


“Can I get your number? I promise I won’t beat you!”

3. John Mayer, 2009


4. Gwyneth Paltrow, 2011


“I’d rather smoke crack than eat cheese from a can.”

5. Justin Bieber, 2012

“I’m not going for the Sixteenth Chapel.”

6. Lindsey Lohan, 2012

”I didn’t know that 6 million Jews were killed,” the actress told the New York Daily News. ”That’s a lot of people.”

8. Ashton Kutcher, 2012


“The number of lines in your forehead tells how many lives you’ve lived.”

9. Samuel Goldwyn, (quoted in) 1976


“I don’t think anybody should write his autobiography until after he’s dead.”

10. Raquel Welch, (During Larry King interview, unknown year)


“I was asked to come to Chicago because Chicago is one of our fifty-two states.”

11. Shaquille O’Neal, 2002


(Asked by a reporter if he’d visited the Parthenon during his trip to Greece) “I can’t really remember the names of the clubs that we went to.”

12. Arnold Schwarzenegger, 2003


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

13. Axl Rose, 1989


“It’s really hard to maintain a one-on-one relationship if the other person is not going to allow me to be with other people.”

14. Paris Hilton, 2011


15. Terrence Howard, 2007


“If they’re using dry paper, they aren’t washing all of themselves. It’s just unclean. So if I go in a woman’s house and see the toilet paper there, I’ll explain this. And if she doesn’t make the adjustment to baby wipes, I’ll know she’s not completely clean.”

16. Ke$ha, 2011


(On her favorite keepsake) “My placenta. My mom found in my basement, crushed up, and made into a necklace that I wear every day to improve my psychic abilities.”

20. Tom Cruise, 2005


“These drugs are dangerous. I have actually helped people come off.
“When you talk about postpartum, you can take people today, women, and what you do is you use vitamins. There is a hormonal thing that is going on, scientifically, you can prove that. But when you talk about emotional, chemical imbalances in people, there is no science behind that.”You can use vitamins to help a woman through those things.”
