Celebrities don’t usually attain their fame and fortune from the intelligent things they say. Most celebs earn respect from their talent and careers, whether it’s acting, music or athletics. But you would at least hope successful stars to have a decent head on their shoulders. Well, not everyone is gifted with beauty, brawn and brains, and we’ve found the dumbest male celebrities to prove it. We’ve even included some of their most memorable quotes.
1. Arnold Schwarzenegger
The international bodybuilder turned actor turned politician has had some interesting things to say. Some of his most famous quotes give us insight into what’s really going on in his head. Here’s what he said when he was campaigning for California governor in 2003: “I don’t understand how they can call me anti-Latino when I’ve made four movies in Mexico.” Here’s his view on gay marriage: “I think that gay marriage should be between a man and a woman.” Maybe Arnold should go back to terminating.
2. Shaquille O’Neal
One of the largest men to ever set foot on the basketball court, Shaquille O’Neal is considered a legend of the sport. But a history buff? Nope! Here’s what Shaq said when he was asked if he visited the Parthenon while on a family vacation in Greece: “I can’t really remember the names of the clubs that we went to.”
3. Jon Gosselin
The reality TV star became famous for having lots of children, not necessarily for the smart things he says. Here’s Jon’s statement of self reflection: “People think I have changed, and I have changed. I’m now the person I know I am.” Deep thoughts, Jon.
4. Ryan Lochte
The Olympic swimmer is definitely successful in the pool, but when he debuted his new reality show, fans saw a different side of Ryan. The dumb side. Here’s something he said on his short-lived show, “Something will pop up in my head. It could be like the weirdest thing. Like all’a sudden like I have like a jumping banana in my head. And I stop and pause. I’m like that damn jumping banana is in my head. Like, I don’t know what’s going on.” He’s definitely good looking, but possibly one of the dumbest male celebrities around.
5. Mike Tyson
We have to cut Mike Tyson some slack because he’s been hit in the head countless times. But this quote still makes us laugh: “I guess I’m gonna fade into Bolivian.” This was Tyson’s response after receiving one the worst beatings in his career from Lennox Lewis.
6. Justin Bieber
Justin’s done a lot of stupid things recently. First, he egged his neighbor’s house, then he relieved himself in a mop bucket in a restaurant kitchen, he had his bodyguards carry him up the Great Wall of China and finally he said this when visiting Anne Frank’s house: “Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a Belieber.”
7. Donald Trump
The business mogul sure knows how to make money. But that doesn’t mean the Donald’s completely right in the head. Mr. Trump has been known to say a few dumb things, especially when he was questioning President Obama’s birthplace. But one Donald quote trumps them all: “The worst thing a man can do is go bald. Never let yourself go bald.” How about you fire that comb-over, Mr. Trump.
Last but not least, the Matrix star admitted himself that he’s not the sharpest tool in the shed. “I’m a meathead, man. You’ve got smart people, and you’ve got dumb people. I just happen to be dumb.” For one of the dumbest male celebrities, this is a pretty smart insight.
