Stupid Things Stars Say

stupid things stars sayElizabeth Hurley was recently quoted in an interview as saying that Marilyn Monroe was cool, but way too fat — that she’d kill herself if she was that fat.

Yes, it’s true.

Celebrities often discredit themselves from having any sort of worthwhile opinion by coming off as pretty shallow and insipid, but they can also make some sort of impact on society by what they say in interviews. Irresponsible comments can be taken very seriously and used harmfully by the adoring public. Elizabeth Hurley‘s uninspired editorial commentary makes me cringe, especially with the celebrity impact on the teenage girls’ body images.

With this in mind, I’m now paying tribute to a lot of stupid things recently said by celebrities — there’s a lot of lip service to the days of faint-inducing corsets and carcinogenic perfumes. Are they irresponsible, are they stupid, or are they just honest?

Pop diva Mariah Carey:
“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.”

Infamous waif model Kate Moss:
“It’s neurotic fat women who hate me–they’re stupid.”
“It was kind of boring for me to have to eat. I would know that I had to, and I would.”

Supermodel Kim Alexis:
“I would rather exercise than read a newspaper.”

Actress Natalie Portman:
(Maybe this is being a little critical, but it certainly sounds shallow)
“I’m pretty obsessed with tweezing it’s, it’s a little scary…they, they asked what you know, what my obsessions were, and I have like, a, a weird thing with tweezing I mean, you know, you got those like, those little growths that they’re coming back and you just have to get it out and it’s like, I get, I’m really…I’m, I’m a bi, tri-daily tweezer.”

Supermodel Beverly Johnson:
“Everyone should have enough money to get plastic surgery.”

Supermodel Tyra Banks:
“I love the confidence that makeup gives me.”

Supermodel Linda Evangelista:
“I won’t get out of bed for less than $10,000.”
“I can do anything you want me to do so long as I don’t have to speak.”
