10 Of The Dumbest Things Ever Said By Celebrities

You know that feeling when you say something, and immediately realize it made absolutely no sense? You know, the one where as soon as the words come out you can actually feel your brain cells packing their bags and catching the nearest flight? Well lucky for you Internet friends, you are not the only one who splurts out dumb things! Here are 10 of the dumbest things celebrities have said that should make us all grateful our word vomit isn’t publicized.

1. Let's start with Jessica Simpson.


Jessica and her husband Nick were filmed during their reality show (Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica) watching T.V. and eating some Tuna for lunch when Jessica spit out this gem of a question:

"Is this chicken, what I have, or is this fish? I know it's tuna, but it says 'Chicken of the Sea."

3. In a LIVE interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Katy Perry expressed her love of Japanese people..


“I am obsessed with Japanese people though!” Perry exclaims to Kimmel in the interview.

After discussing her love of Japanese outfits, and her appreciation of how polite Japanese people are, Perry looks at the camera and addresses the culture by saying:

“I'm so obsessed with you I want to skin you and wear you like Versace."

She probably could have gone about expressing her appreciation a different way, but brownie points for creativity, Katy!

4. Oh David Beckham..


David Beckham is definitely one of my favorite celebrities known to say some things on the dumber side. When asked about his child’s spiritual life Beckham replied, “I definitely want Brooklyn to be christened, but I don’t know into what religion yet.”

Take your time Mr. Beckham, you have a lot of choices.


Speaking of Beckham..

“Alex Ferguson is the best manager I've ever had at this level. Well, he's the only manager I've actually had at this level. But he's the best manager I've ever had” –David Bekham

Very touching, Dave.

6. For number 6 let’s look to actress Tara Reid who proved to us all that starring in a movie called “Shakrnado” does not make you an expert on sea life.


The 37-year-old actress made that crystal clear when she went on Discovery's Shark Week talk show "Shark After Dark" and told the host,

"Today I was like, all right, I don't want to, like, really sound stupid when I do this show today, like... so I learned a little education on sharks."

She goes on to add, "So I look up 'sharks' on the Internet and I see 'whale sharks,' so I'm like, that must mean that a whale and a shark have sex. And then I think, 'Well, how do a whale and a shark have sex?'"

Don’t worry internet friends it gets even better.

To the sounds of a snickering audience, she was asked, "Was there a video of it?" She then says, "No, there is a thing called whale sharks, and then I realized whales are mammals and sharks are animals, so they have nothing to do with each other."

She continued, "So basically the dolphins have sex with each other, but the sharks don't, so I thought, 'How is it such a thing?' But the difference is, there is a whale shark, which is the biggest shark in the ocean — he's also scary — and then you have the great white, who's also scary. There are over 400 kinds of sharks, but the whale shark is kind of interesting because he's not so mean."

Well that clears that up! Thank you, Tara!

7. Now, I know a lot of you may be worried that I have yet to include a Kardashian in this list of ‘dumb things a celebrity has said’. Well worry no more!


I decided to pin point one sister, Kim, to slim down my findings, but even at that there were way too many to choose just one, so here’s a little list of dumb things said by Kim Kardashian! Enjoy.

"EWW. I'm at lunch, the woman at the table next to me is breast feeding her baby with no coverup."

"I couldn't care less if they [the media] say I'm pregnant with twins by my brother."

"She [Britney Spears] said she loves me and she loves my butt and how she wants to be my lesbian lover. I mean, what do you say to that other than 'No thanks'? Actually, maybe I would do it for a million bucks."

And finally...

8. One celebrity quote that I hold near and dear to my heart was said by Mel Gibson, and it definitely makes this list.


Back in 2006 Gibson was arrested under suspicion of driving under the influence. During his arrest Gibson allegedly turned to the assisting female officer and yelled:

“What are you looking at, sugar tits?”

Cause I mean, if you're already in trouble, why not make it worse?

9. Let's talk about Mariah Carey..


Yes she’s beautiful, yes she’s talented, but does she think before she speaks? Ehhh…

The star was quoted in VOX magazine saying the following:

"When I watch TV and see those poor starving kids all over the world, I can't help but cry. I mean, I'd love to be skinny like that, but not with all those flies and death and stuff."

***All I want for Christmas is...brain cells..***
