Some years ago, Paris Hilton used to provide a constant source of amusement with her interviews, in which she sometimes slipped genuine pearls of wisdom and ridiculousness. Even though she’s been keeping a low profile as of late, there’s no need to panic: we still have silly quotes from other celebrities.
Stars, they’re just like us. Whether they’re trying to say something really memorable or just don’t think before they open their mouth, they can occasionally say the darndest things.
Sometimes, they simply say silly things because they’re less guarded in their interviews – those are the times we love them the most because they show us that, behind an army of publicists and media people, is a real person.
2012 has been a crazy year and Christmastime is the best occasion to just take a few minutes and have a look back on it.
We’ve had plenty of drama, more than a fair share of scandal, financial problems, losses and controversy. As gossip blogger Perez Hilton notes, we also had a healthy serving of humor and silliness.
Starting from the ridiculous excuses Lindsay Lohan made for herself on the promo trail for what was supposed to be her acting comeback “Liz & Dick,” to the never-ending source of hilarity that is Charlie Sheen and various quotes from the “Twilight” cast, below is confirmation that this year was indeed a fun one.
You know, just in case you still had doubts.
Without further ado, check out some of the craziest and funniest things celebrities said in 2012. Happy Holidays everyone!
