Who doesn’t know the feeling of saying something stupid at the wrong time? Whether it’s a debate, a job interview or a first date – we’ve all been there, done that!
Celebrities are no exception to the rule either. In fact, having every word and action of theirs analyzed just makes it worse. Here are ten incidents of celebrities sticking their foot in their respective mouths:
"I think gay marriage is something that should be between a man and a woman." – Arnold Schwarzenegger
Um… we don’t think it means what you think, Arnie.
"The two men I found amazing were Bono and Bruce Springsteen. Bono asked me if there was rock in India. I consider myself a good brand ambassador and immediately sent him Rockstar, Rock On and Dostana as he wanted one of my films too." – Priyanka Chopra
Rock… Rockstar… Totally the same thing!
"My sister’s expecting a baby, and I don’t know if I’m going to be an uncle or an aunt." – Chuck Nevitt, basketball player
We don’t even have words for this.
"I am considered an icon at the age of 20 when people like after 40s or after they die are considered icons. It’s just amazing!" – Sonam Kapoor
Talk about tooting your own horn!
"Whenever 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.” – Mariah Carey
Clearly, Mariah understands the real world problems.
"Manmohan Singh is the Indian President." – Varun Dhawan
As much as we’d like to say he’s the only young actor who should pick up a newspaper, he’s only one of them.
"Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber." – Justin Bieber, at the Anne Frank House
Clearly, tact and tastefulness aren’t at the top of his list.
"Prithviraj Chavan." – Alia Bhatt, when asked who the President of India is.
As much as we adore Alia, she’s far from being the student of the year.
"I’d rather smoke crack than eat cheese from a tin." – Gwyneth Paltrow
"Ashok Chavan." – Anushka Sharma, when asked who the Chief Minister of Maharashtra is.
Et tu, Anushka?
Inspite of all this, we can’t help but adore these celebs! Love ’em, hate ’em or love to hate ’em – No one can deny that life wouldn’t be nearly as entertaining without them!
