There’s nothing better than a good confession — just ask any priest. There’s just something cleansing about getting a bad deed off your chest and feeling that weight being lifted off of your shoulders. You now have a clean slate and can go about your day as if it never happened. It never happened, right? Confessions aren’t just for the everyday folk either. There have been many a time that a celebrity said something that you wouldn’t expect to come out of his or her mouth. After all, celebrities usually play their lives close to their vests. They don’t want you to know what’s going on in their lives. For this reason, it’s shocking at times when a celebrity comes out and admits to a scandalous confession, though Ryan Reynolds seems to do it on a weekly basis without blinking an eye. We can’t help but regularly laugh at the candidness with which Reynolds speaks about his marriage and family.
Like in Reynolds’s case, some celebrities are more candid about sex and life than others are. A great example would be when Gwyneth Paltrow recently launched the topic of anal sex on her blog GOOP. Yes, that really happened. That’s not the worst of it either; we have celebrities that take down their exes in stand-up comedy acts by admitting things that would make us all blush with embarrassment. Do they care? Clearly not. If you want to hear some shocking confessions, then check out the list below of some of our favorite celebrities admitting some scandalous things.
15. Gwyneth Likes All “Positions”
Gwyneth has always been candid about her sex life; her blog is pretty much a tell-all about her sexuality and other things. There has been a lot of talk over her website because she seems to be an extremist when it comes to nutrition and exercise. There are plenty of people who have criticized the site and thought that she might be a little bonkers. She definitely had no problem talking about deeply personal issues. She recently included an area in her blog GOOP that talks about the best ways to have anal sex. She has been very candid for many years, however, and in 2012, she had an interview with The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet where she explained that she did not have a favorite position. She told Amanda that she was “down with all of them.”
14. Scarlett Johansson Likes Raunchy S-x
Scarlett always comes across as a classy gal; she’s always polished whether she’s on the red carpet or not. She’s never been the type of actress to get herself in trouble and has a great reputation in Hollywood. When it comes to seducing the pouty-lipped vixen, she’s revealed that she requires a certain type of attention. There’s no need for flowers and chocolate. In fact, Scarlett admits that she gets quite the thrill from having sex in the backseat of a car. Shocking? A little bit. It’s definitely an unusual confession, but hey, don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. All you need is some extra room in the back, and you’re good to go. “I love it. If I were in a really raunchy frame of mind, wanting something crazy and kinky, the back seat would be it.”
13. Rumer Willis Had a Crush on Her Stepdad
Rumer always found that it was weird when her mother, Demi Moore started dating Ashton Kutcher, mainly because she had always had a huge crush on him. She was also mortified when Demi started dating him because they had a 15-year age difference, but in the end, she got over it. Demi and Ashton were married for eight years before they got divorced. It had to be weird for her mom to be dating someone who was around the age of a guy she would be interested in dating. She eventually talked about the fact that her mom hooked up with her crush. “That’s when you open your Teen Beat and just take him down, rip out somebody else, and put them up,” she told Howard Stern (via E! Online). Willis added that she gave her mom credit. “I was kind of impressed like, ‘Yeah girl, get it,'” Despite the initial awkwardness, Willis told Stern (via the Daily Mail) that Kutcher was “a really great step-father.”
12. Lee Child Admits to Being a Stoner
Who doesn’t love the Jack Reacher movies? They’re gripping, right? You might be surprised to hear that the author of those stories, Lee Child, was stoned while he wrote them, which is pretty impressive considering the books have sold over 70 million copies. He penned the novels while being on a regular weed high, and he wouldn’t be the first author to do so. Lee Child has even gone so far as to say that he was the poster boy for smoking pot. “I’ve been smoking weed for 44 years, five nights a week. I have a guy on speed dial in New York who comes over with a huge range of marijuana. I smoke it in a pipe because I’ve never been any good at doing my own roll ups.” Well, we certainly appreciate his candidness, and it might be something to consider doing now based on how successful his novels are. Hmmm….
11. The Mile-High Club
The mile-high club is an exclusive group that we don’t all get a chance to belong to, especially these days with heightened security and all. It’s hard to sneak away to get a little action. Chrissy Teigen, however, seems to be a veteran when it comes to the club. Not only has she admitted that she and her husband John Legend have become members of the club, but they’re actually ADVANCED members. During a Cosmopolitan interview, she stated, “We were on our way to Thailand to see my parents, flying commercial first-class. We were under a blanket. We weren’t even in one of those pod things. I feel like we should get a trophy for that.” These two didn’t even sneak away to the bathroom; they did it right out in the open while they were in their seats.
10. Denise Richards’s Lesbian Tryst
We know what you’re thinking, but no, we’re not talking about her role in Wild Things, though she did get some lesbian action there. Could she have experimented with a co-star? Who’s to say? She’s not naming any names. Denise Richards pretty much lost all her fame during her marriage with Charlie Sheen, and she hasn’t done much with her career since. That’s usually the time when a celebrity finds the time to write a memoir, and that she did. In it, she was quite candid about her sexual experiences. Her book, The Real Girl Next Door was released in 2011, and it describes a lesbian experience that the actress had. She also described the incident while she was being interviewed by Howard Stern that same year. “I just met her through friends and work and stuff. I was curious. We were curious.”
9. James Franco Tried to Hook Up with An Underage Fan
In 2014, James Franco was in a Broadway production called Of Mice and Men. It was around that time that he met a seventeen-year-old student from Scotland who gave him the vibe that she wanted to get together. They exchanged numerous flirty messages, and Franco allegedly asked her if she had a boyfriend and whether he should “rent a room.” Unfortunately for him, he was exposed on social media where he claimed he had no idea that the girl was under 18. “I’m embarrassed, and I guess I’m just a model of how social media is tricky,” he said. “It’s a way people meet each other today, but what I’ve learned…you don’t know who’s on the other end.” Franco confessed, “[I used] bad judgment, and I learned my lesson, but unfortunately, in my position…not only do I have to go through the embarrassing kind of rituals of meeting someone — sometimes if I do that then it gets published for the world, so now it’s like doubly embarrassing.”
8. Russell Brand Burned Katy Perry
When it comes to breakups sometimes, celebrities aren’t always kind to their exes, and in the case of Russell Brand, he took Katy Perry down a notch during one of his stand-up comedy routines. He burned her right to the ground actually, and she must have wanted to strangle him after the show. In 2013, at London’s Soho Theatre, he made jokes about becoming a monk after their divorce and that he wanted to think about other people during sex. I guess she certainly left her scars in his life. It can’t be great when your ex is thinking about becoming a monk. “When you’re a monk, you’re not allowed to have sex with anyone. When you’re married, it’s one person. That’s one more than a monk. It’s not that different.” About sleeping with Katy, he added, “I’d be having sex thinking, ‘Think of anyone, anyone else.'” Ouch!
7. Keith Richards Snorted His Dad
We can’t say that very much shocks us anymore, but this one is truly a confession for the books. Keith Richards is a rock legend, and he comes from the generation where it was nothing to snort coke regularly. In fact, there probably wasn’t much he didn’t snort. Still, when we heard that he snorted his father’s ashes, that really left us with a lot to ponder. Mainly, what the F$#@k! How could anyone even think of doing such a thing? Richards, of course, had no issue with it at all. After his father passed away, Richards thought it would be cool to snort the ashes of his deceased father by mixing it with coke. “I snorted my father. He was cremated, and I couldn’t resist grinding him up with a little bit of blow. My dad wouldn’t have cared.” There just are no words for something like that.
6. Megan Fox Doesn’t Flush
Megan Fox has been living in men’s fantasies since she became a part of Hollywood many years ago. She’s only grown more beautiful over the years. You might be surprised to find out that her personal hygiene is a little questionable. The girl actually once admitted during a GQ interview that she has a problem with being clean. She doesn’t like to clean her house, and she has a problem caring about whether the toilet is flushed. “I’m horrible to live with. I don’t clean,” she confessed. “I forget to flush the toilet. Friends will tell me, ‘You totally pinched a loaf in my toilet and didn’t flush.'” If that doesn’t put an unsavory image in your head, then I don’t know what will. It’s something that most people would be mortified by, but she seems to be completely comfortable with her level of uncleanliness.
5. Martha Stewart Had a Thr—–e
This might be a hard image to get out of your head as well, but it appears that Martha Stewart had a threesome at some point in her life. She once admitted to taking drugs, which was already hard for the world to imagine considering the image that she portrays with her cooking empire. But over the years, Martha has certainly opened us up to another side of her, especially after her time in jail. She went on a weird confession spree where she told an interviewer that she got into internet dating, learned the fine art of dating, and even had a one night stand. As hard as that is to imagine of a woman well into her 70s, she blew the top of the interviewer even more when she admitted to possibly having a threesome as well. It seems that this cooking queen has a saucy side to her.
4. Armie Hammer Was Almost Stabbed During S-x
Armie Hammer, the Lone Ranger star, is certainly proving that sometimes love can hurt. He’s a star that’s most candid during interviews and doesn’t seem to have a problem letting it all hang. During an Elle magazine interview in 2013, he told the interviewer about a sexual encounter he had had with a woman that almost resulted in him being stabbed. “One chick tried to stab me when we were having sex. I should so not be telling this story. She was like, ‘True love leaves scars. You don’t have any.’ And then she tried to stab me with a butcher knife. Of course, I promptly broke up with her . . . seven months later.” There must have been some pretty great sex involved for him to have waited another seven months to break up with her crazy ass.
3. Jessica Simpson Doesn’t Always Brush
You might be shocked considering the fact that Jessica Simpson has that megawatt smile, but the singer isn’t a fan of brushing her teeth. She has admitted a few times that she skips brushing in lieu of just using mouthwash and at times has even used her shirt to clean her teeth in between brushings. “I don’t brush them every day,” she said. “I’ll use a shirt or something. I know it’s gross, but I always have fresh breath.” So why does this famous star use these weird practices instead of just brushing her teeth? “My teeth are so white and I don’t like them to feel too slippery, but I do use Listerine and I do floss every day,” she said. “Find me when I’m 60,” she laughed, “and [my teeth] will probably be all out, but I literally have these strong powerful teeth that don’t need to be brushed.”
2. Jenny McCarthy’s Walk of Shame
Jenny may be living the glamourous life now and is in every guy’s Playboy fantasy, but before she was famous, she wasn’t that popular. In fact, there was a time she had to take the cursed walk of shame. She told The Huffington Post all about the embarrassing incident. “I was in college and I just broke up with my high school sweetheart of, like, seven years, so I hadn’t been with anyone except him. So, I met this boy in college and we saw each other a few times and then we went back to his place and did it,” she recalled. And right afterwards he said to me, ‘Are you hungry?’ And I said ‘Yeah!’ and he’s, like, ‘McDonald’s is right across the street, what do you want?’ And I’m like, ‘I want a Big Mac, extra sauce, no pickles!’ And he’s like ‘OK’ and he got up and left…and never came back. And I was in his apartment! And I wait, like hungry, for four hours and I look out the window and I’m like, ‘McDonald’s is closed!’ and I realized, Oh my God, he left me. So, I had to do the walk of shame back to my college apartment. That was, like, the worst experience.” Poor girl!
1. George Clooney’s First O—–m
George Clooney had an odd confession with regard to his first orgasm, though it had nothing at all to do with sex. He was quite candid during an interview and left nothing to the imagination. During an interview with Rolling Stone in 2011, the actor admitted to a few things, one of them that he lost his virginity when he was 16. But he then went on to say that his first orgasm came at a much earlier age. “I believe it was while climbing a rope when I was 6 or 7 years old. I mean, nothing came out, but all the other elements were there. I remember getting to the top of the rope, hanging off the rope, and going, ‘Oh my God, this feels great!'” It’s definitely a weird thing to imagine, but he’s probably not the first guy to experience an orgasm at such a young age.
