The Winona one is certainly in the right spot.
2002-12-26 10:04:12 AM  
I am fond of the Whitney Houston one myself

2002-12-26 10:06:25 AM  
9) ''People think it's s---.''
-- Guy Ritchie, telling Oxford students why his ''Swept Away,'' starring wife Madonna, is going straight to video in England

I bet they have heated..discussions
2002-12-26 10:07:08 AM  
What were people saying about personal responsibility?
2002-12-26 10:10:09 AM  
5) ''All I know is, I woke up and I am covered in cream.''
-- ''Survivor: Thailand'' castaway Ted Rogers Jr., apologizing to tribemate Ghandia Johnson, in response to her accusation that he was ''grinding'' against her in her sleep.

heh now why couldn't those two have been used together!
2002-12-26 10:10:52 AM  
Would it be to much to ask to have these people just go away?
2002-12-26 10:12:01 AM  
Jackson's excuse is priceless, and that's why I don't buy it.
2002-12-26 10:12:27 AM  
And the #1 excuse for 2003:

"I married her because it seemed like a great cover for my homosexuality, and love for Matt Damon."
Ben Affleck explaining his marriage to Jennifer Lopez (I refuse to call her by her nickname)

2002-12-26 10:12:40 AM  
Smgema - I think this goes nicely with the upcoming story about sending people to Mars.
2002-12-26 10:13:59 AM  
2) ''I made a terrible mistake. I got caught up in the excitement of the moment. I would never intentionally endanger the lives of her children.''

-- ''Celebrity Survivor: Thailand'' castaway Michael Jackson., apologizing to tribemate Ghandia Johnson, in response to her accusation that he was ''grinding'' against her kids in there sleep

Ok...I'll stop :(
2002-12-26 10:14:01 AM  
And the number one celebrity excuse...
"The Devil made me do it!"
2002-12-26 10:14:21 AM  
well, something else i dont give a crap about
2002-12-26 10:14:21 AM  
"I thought it might be an interesting read but it was s---."
Monkeyknife, explaining how he'd wasted sixty seconds of his life reading that link.
2002-12-26 10:14:53 AM  
Kill Hollywood....
2002-12-26 10:15:11 AM  
Emilykp: What were people saying about personal responsibility?

Well... i would take responsibilty for my actions, but these celebs keep telling me that i dont have to... oh.. wait...

2002-12-26 10:17:17 AM  
nobody cares
2002-12-26 10:18:30 AM  
Money means having to come up with outrageous excuses not saying sorry.
2002-12-26 10:18:53 AM  
Virgil, your a bit of a celebrity yourself...didn't you bodyguards for the million dollar man a few years back?
2002-12-26 10:18:57 AM  
For once, I would love for someone to come out and say, "You know, I did it and I did it because I wanted to." Is that too much to ask? And I don't just mean actors, I mean all "celebrities" in general.
2002-12-26 10:19:16 AM  
"I accidentally clicked it looking for boobies....yea, boobies."
-- The alleged response of farker Vashotakuu after the ransacking of a all-night bar
2002-12-26 10:19:23 AM  
Yotta- did you click "next page" and see the picture of Michael Jackson? It's the Devil indeed!!

I got a kick out of Whitney's. The others were horrible. Maraiah Carrey needs the shiat beat out of her and some bigger clothes.
2002-12-26 10:24:03 AM  
"I really thought that the world needed new and more interesting soft drinks."
2002-12-26 10:25:31 AM  
Winnona and Whitney should get together (no, not in my bed, well, maybe, ok, just once, maybe twice, but no more than five times, ok?) and go shoplifting for crack since they both need some. And then stop by Mariah's place, get some rest with Ted Rogers, and sample some of that high-flying cream (the band Peter Buck wishes he was good enough to play with, if he was around then).
There, I think I tied it all together. But what was GWB's excuse at the time? Out chasing Barney?
2002-12-26 10:27:01 AM  
If Mariah Carey and Scott Stapp had a kid, would it be a chipmunk?
2002-12-26 10:28:00 AM  
"I thought it would be cool to make a pornographic music video that hid the fact that I can't sing worth a s$&%."
2002-12-26 10:31:08 AM  
I'm surprised Sizemore made the list and Russell Crowe didn't.

Oh yeah - Crowe's not sorry for being a tremendous celebrity asshat.
2002-12-26 10:31:09 AM  
Guy Ritchie's was not an excuse, just an explanation. As for the rest of them, there's really no excuses for these people. I think that Skinink definitely has the ultimate excuse for 2003 locked up.
2002-12-26 10:32:34 AM  
"We weren't killing, we were just thinning the heard."
[image from too old to be available]

I'm sorry, at least I'll have people to talk to in hell.
2002-12-26 10:36:29 AM  
Hmmmmmmmm..... Peter Buck covered in cream? At least there's no pickles involved....
2002-12-26 10:38:31 AM  
Number 11...

"The mods don't choose the articles...the admins choose the articles."
2002-12-26 10:43:49 AM  
[image from too old to be available]

"... I Did'nt do it, nobody saw me, you cant prove anything"

Best... Excuse... Ever...
2002-12-26 10:52:32 AM  
Gatortarheel: Oooo - I know! I know! Christina Aguilera, right?
2002-12-26 10:54:12 AM  
''I was told that I should shoplift. The director said I should try it out.''

...And she believed him? Geez
2002-12-26 10:54:45 AM  
Barbara Streisand: "It's well known that I have a rather large nose. It's only natural that I stick it in places where it doesn't belong."

9) 'People think it's s---.'
-- Guy Ritchie, telling Oxford students why his 'Swept Away,' starring wife Madonna, is going straight to video in England

Is that really an excuse? Pretty ballsy answer if you ask me. I actually think I respect him much more than I would have otherwise. Wait, no.... he still made another Madonna vehicle in the first place.
2002-12-26 11:02:23 AM  
I find that Stephen King is on this list very insulting. The guy has done enough and continued writing after nearly dying. Leave him be, and don't lump him with the rest of these asshats.

EW sucks.
2002-12-26 11:11:33 AM  
I want a personal apology from Rosie O'Donnel for making me picture her engaged in some lesbo action.

[crawls into fetal position under desk and sucks thumb]
2002-12-26 11:16:28 AM  
Diogenes Did Streisand really say that? LOL

That's a great answer. Shuts them up and causes the giggles.
2002-12-26 11:20:51 AM  
ZipBeep: Unfortunately, Babs isn't that classy and certainly has little to no sense of humor about herself. That was me speaking for the dippy diva.
2002-12-26 11:43:06 AM  
Stephen King had better finish those Dark Tower books instead of wasting his time with un-readable tripe like "The Plant".
2002-12-26 11:44:55 AM  
Where is Dubya?
2002-12-26 11:59:14 AM  
I think Whitney should be the new DARE spokeswoman.

"Yo kids, crack is wack."

I know I'm convinced. Wouldn't want to do any of those "cheap" drugs.
2002-12-26 12:23:12 PM  

Can you say C-O-N-T-R-A-C-T ?
2002-12-26 12:26:22 PM  
Let's do some SAT analogy practice...

Stephen King is to - Literary Genius
as Tom Clancy is to - Foriegn Policy Expert

"I thought at the time he was the love of my life." --Jennifer Lopez

(But that one works every year.)
2002-12-26 01:44:05 PM  
"All those empty seats are distracting" --The Cincinnati Bengals
2002-12-26 02:12:42 PM  
haha... thats a good one Maimzini
2002-12-26 03:30:28 PM  
"I did this 'cos I'm a HOMOSEXUAL!"

How come EW didn't publish this excuse? It's the most often used excuse made by many a celebrity in Hollywood to cover up their "bad toilet habits"! Really, I don't think the likes of George Michael, Rosie O'Donnell, Ellen Degeneres, Ricky Martin etc. are gay; they're just saying it for publicity stunt. Now these twads have to live up that "lie", if it's a lie at all.

"I'm tyring to leave. I'm just waiting on clearance from a country that will have me".

Alec Baldwin
