26 Times Celebrities Opened Their Mouth And Said The Most Nonsense Thing I've Ever Heard

1.One of the most ridiculous, dumb-yet-harmless celeb quotes to me is when Harry Styles said of Don't Worry Darling, "You know, my favorite thing about the movie is, like, it feels like a movie. It feels like a real, like, you know, 'go to the theater' film movie."

2.Speaking of Harry Styles — Liam Payne once referred to himself as the "antichrist" of Harry when he probably meant "antithesis," saying, "I mean, look at the stuff I put out and the stuff Harry puts out. Polar opposite. I'm like the anti-Christ version of what Harry is."

3.In an interview with Vogue to promote The Hills and its spinoffs — which are infamously about privileged, young, attractive white people — Mischa Barton claimed, "I think the interesting thing about this show is you have people from all different walks of life. It's definitely interesting."

4.When the interviewer then brought up diversity, Heidi Montag said, "We don't all look the same. I mean, Audrina [Patridge] has darker hair. I feel like Mischa has darker hair."

5.Jack Antonoff once referred to himself as "a straight man with, like, lesbian chemicals," adding, "You can be a man who loves a woman but love someone the way a gay man loves another man or a woman loves a woman."

6.Sometimes celebs can say MUCH more harmful things about queer people...that also happen to be very, very dumb. Soon after becoming governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger said, "I think gay marriage should be between a man and a woman."

7.Anytime celebrities try to get involved in politics, we get some wild, out-of-touch quotes. In a Fox News appearance, Craig T. Nelson spoke against government programs for the needy, saying, "They're not going to bail me out. I've been on food stamps and welfare. Anybody help me out? No. No."

8.This is obviously not as bad, but I still find it hilarious that Lady Gaga cosplayed as the FBI after the January 6 Capitol riots. "I walked through the Capitol like a detective and looked for evidence of the truth. Because we see these things on screens, right? We witness these things on the news," she said. "But to be there in person, I was afraid."

9.Some stars reallyyyy struggle with geography. For example, Addison Rae doesn't seem to know that Korea is in Asia. In this video with Bryce Hall, after Hall referred to a woman as Asian, Rae said, "You don't know that. She could be Korean."

10.Kim Kardashian once tweeted, "We are here in Botswana, South Africa! Wow what a long flight!" Botswana and South Africa are two different countries.

11.Christina Aguilera once asked, "So, where's the Cannes Film Festival being held this year?" The famous film festival is, of course, held in Cannes.

12.Cultural appropriation is also a big problem with celebs, and in one of the worst examples, Gwen Stefani said something I don't think she'll ever live down. In an interview with Allure, Gwen Stefani spoke about admiring Japanese culture (which led her to create the fragrance brand Harajuku Lovers) after her father told her stories about work trips to Japan while she was growing up. She added that when she finally got to go to Japan herself, she exclaimed, "My God, I'm Japanese and I didn't know it" because of how much she connected with the culture.

13.History can also be tough. On the celebrity reality show Stars on Mars, Ariel Winter confused fellow contestant Lance Armstrong with the late astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon.

14.While we'll give him a bit of a pass, as he was a teenager at the time, Jaden Smith has several ridiculous, iconic quotes. My favorite has got to be "Being born was the most influential thing that's ever happened to me, for myself."

15. Though this one's a close second.

16.Brooke Shields was also a teenager when she said this, but it's still pretty bad — she once stated, "Smoking kills. If you're killed, you're lost a very important part of your life."

17.One more teenage celebrity quote: when asked about which political party he might support when he turned 18, 16-year-old Justin Bieber replied, "I'm not sure about the parties. But whatever they have in Korea, that's bad."

18.He also once referred to the Sistine Chapel as the "Sixteenth Chapel" while discussing his tattoos with David Letterman.

19.In another vocabulary error, when Mike Tyson was asked about his future, he quipped that he was going to "fade into Bolivian."

20.David and Victoria Beckham have tried out a few different religions over the years, and when their son Brooklyn was born, David said, "I definitely want Brooklyn to be christened, but I don't know into what religion yet." The word "christen" only pertains to Christianity.

21.Demi Lovato has had several iconic interview responses, but one of my favorites is when she was asked about her favorite dish and replied, "I like mugs because they're very comfortable in your hand and they hold hot things that you don't have to touch, so, you know, coffee, hot tea."

22.In a similar example, she thought students talking about inherited jeans were talking about hand-me-down jeans.

23.Snooki also has a ton of iconic quotes, but this one lives in my head rent-free.

Kim Kardashian explaining, "That's why I don't eat fricken lobster, or anything like that. Because they're alive when you kill it."

24.Noah Centineo's People's Choice Awards speech also lives in my head rent-free because, like...what was he saying?

Noah Centineo on stage holding an award, saying: "And before I go, I just want to say...it matters not what you've done, but what you do with what you've done for others."

25.You gotta love out-of-touch comparisons celebs make (like that time Kim Kardashian compared her life to a cancer patient's, which she later backtracked on), but one I just love is when Charles Melton said, "Riverdale truly was my Juilliard," comparing the time on the teen show to attending one of the world's most prestigious performing arts schools.

26.And finally, we have to end on the most iconic: when Jessica Simpson didn't know if tuna was chicken or fish.
